boston trip soundtrack

i cannot sleep on planes. so i took this time to go through my ipod, which i hadn't done in quite a while. i compiled a list of songs that reflect my mood and musical taste (that's right, i love prince). i wanted to share this playlist with people, and this desire eventually landed me on this site which reviewed blog playlist embedding.

the author recommended imeem, which i used. it was still not easy! this could be way easier. but perhaps "they" don't want people making these playlists? anyway, listen to some of it below while it's available.

oh, and i put in the sitting meditation track i followed while on the plane. it's long but nice to follow if you have time. i don't expect many people will listen to that!

Hey Omar,

This is pretty awesome. How is this legal? (Or is it?).

It's fun working to your music--except that meditation track, that was a little odd.

on legality: i'm not sure. i guess it depends on whether imeem has a deal with these artists.. supposedly they have a deal with lots of artists. you can't actually download any of these tracks without paying for them, and this gives artists exposure. anyway, i think it's a creative way of thinking outside the box of selling CDs and itunes. i also think http://anywhere.fm/ is a cool idea too, check that out.

the button on the left of the player (looks like a stop button?) can be used to disable tracks, so they are skipped. i think. that might help with the meditation track :)
