    Last.fm is but one of many music sites (RateYourMusic.com is another), and just one of may "social networking" sites (such as Facebook-- my personal favorite right now-- and MySpace). I'm trying to get my friends onboard, and so far only one has joined. It is a bit of a stretch for many people to spend so much time online, i think. The internet is so impersonal, so inhuman. But sites such as Last.fm and Facebook really exist almost purely to CONNECT people. They are like the new community centers in our current world of globalism and technology.

    But I really like Facebook and Last.fm, and Flickr, and Twitter. They seem to help me stay connected to my friends. In fact, I just had an old friend of mine call me just now, who, since I joined Facebook about two weeks ago because I found him on it, has now called me TWICE in the past two weeks after not having called me in probably two years! So that's really nice...

    And he's joined Last.fm, and now I get to see (and hear!) what he's listening to. So now we are connected with more frequent updates as to what we're doing and what we're taking photos of and what we're listening to.

    Way cool, as far as I'm concerned...

    Listening to crossover opera/pop artist Izzy doing Tim Buckley's Song to the Siren. Fairly inane. Such an awesome song, but she just puts me to sleep without any real feeling in it...
