As a wedding gift, Becca finally made me join the real world and own a smart phone.

Nothing better than listening to randomly selected Swedish death metal while toiling away on some spreadsheet for the man.

I always think to myself, "Hey, I should probably listen to some music at work. Or those podcasts that always keep piling up." But then end up not doing it.

My office mate is usually playing something random that I don't care for (Coheed and Cambria, seriously? I challenge someone to convince me that this band doesn't suck). But then again I must not hate it too bad because I don't just listen to something else.

They just dropped the uber-restrictive firewall rules at work, and now I don't even need a smartphone.

It's nice.

At some point it was understandable that one couldn't have every employee running 128Kbps to their desk, but now with comcast offering 20Mbps as a baseline for consumer broadband... I don't know if I agree with that assertion anymore.

I'm currently working to Black Metal by Venom, so I totally get what you're talking about.

What I missed most about being away from BGG was not being able to rant about the things that bugged me. I bought one of this band's CDs after I had seen it mentioned in the same breath as bands like Isis and Pelican, so when I saw one of their CDs on sale at Best Buy, I picked it up. After one listen, I thought it was on the level of the cheesiest '80s hair metal I ever heard, just without the self-irony of bands like The Darkness.

For the record, I don't understand how C&C drew those comparisons. They're not even in the same sport, much less the same team. Hell, they have more in common with C&C Music Factory than any post-rock bands I've heard.

Pandora's not bad, and I have it on when I'm the only one in the office. It has also turned me on to bands I hadn't heard which are similiar to ones I have. However, they go back to the same set of songs many times if the genre isn't broad enough, and they lean a bit heavily on the live version of songs - which I'm not usually a fan of.
