Thanks Colt

Thanks for putting up with my music sampling. Thanks Colt for your cool music. In actuality, I really don't like music on blogs! It sounds like such a great idea. However, even when it is music I really like or enjoy, it comes on so abruptly. I find it startling (even on my own blog). And...often I am not on a computer where music is appropriate. It seems the pause button is always at the very end of the page and if you ever navigate away and come back you are thrust into a new song. So...for this reason, I decided to remove the music from my blog in case anyone else feels this way.

Am I the only one?

I totally agree. That's one reason I switched to viewing most of the blogs I read via google reader. It shows me the blogs without playing any music.

ah haha,
thanks for putting it up there.
I was getting some mad ratings with that website program.

I guess so many people check out your blog that it rated one of my songs #2 out of 4000 songs in the Grunge genre and like #30 out of 20,000 songs in the alternative genre or something. It was pretty crazy and I have no idea how they rate it, but I imagine you having it on your blog was a factor.

here are the actual ratings

# 28 in Alternative. Total songs: 133,349
# 1 in Grunge. Total songs: 3,232

Electric Buddha
# 156 in Electronica (highest position was 33). Total songs: 247,558
# 13 in Breakbeat (highest position was 2). Total songs: 10,064

Too much James Brown
# 103 in Alternative (highest position was 78). Total songs: 133,349
# 5 in Grunge (highest position was 3). Total songs: 3,232.

Thats some mad exposure if you ask me.

Wow! I am glad to see it gave you some good exposure. I want to get your new music on my ipod when I come home.

Oh dear Erin, I am so sorry you read my blog! I know a lot of people that don't like music on blogs, but I love it (mostly because I put all of my favorite music on mine then turn it on whenever I need something to listen to). So I truly apologize. I hope you will still read mine. :)
