Internet rockstar for all of 5.2 seconds

Everytime I post on lib schooled., my blog automagically updates my Twitter and my LJ with the entry. This always makes me giddy for some reason, I have no idea why.

When my twitter updated with this entry@pandora_radio on Twitter caught it and broadcast it to the masses. I was talking with Lucia, the CM and she told me that a lot of people seemingly liked the station I created. I also found out that she, too, is a librarian!

NPR's All Songs Considered Mix on Pandora

I’ve become a huge podcast whore, to the tune that I follow dozens of different podcasts on a weekly basis. One of my favorites, and the one that got me into this craze, is NPR’s All Songs Considered.

Not only has this podcast introduced me to a plethora of new music I may never have gotten my teeth into, but, it’s also allowed me to expand my musical taste. Who knew I was totally into neo-soul as of late?

I also follow Song of the Day, but that sometimes is seemingly overwhelming.

I decided to harness the power of ASC and Pandora to create the NPR’s All Songs Considered Mix. I cherry picked nearly three dozen different bands I’ve heard over the last six months, interested to see what Pandora would come up with but at least this way, I can listen to old favorites and fall in love with new favorites.


a brief and quick update



Had to take a deep breath there for a moment as I HAVE SO MUCH TO DO AND VERY LITTLE TIME TO DO IT! type of mood. I shouldn’t even be writing at this hour but hey, I’ll sleep when I’m dead.

First up, the image is from the wonderful site indexed, which I’ve fallen in love with recently. That card is one of my favorites and also available on a t-shirt. Size men’s M if you want to get me something for the holidays.

Secondly, I’ve created another blog that will be a group collaborative thing for one of my classes. We are working on a group presentation on intellectual freedom, with my sub-topic being book censorship. This should prove to be awesome if we can get it off the ground.

Thirdly, I’ve got a wonderful set of things I want to discuss about lib school, including writing a “so you want to be a librarian” series discussing topics that I wish that I had found when I was researching lib schools. If by judging from some of the communities I read on wanna be’s and current grad school participants, there seems to be an overwhelming amount of running around with the head cut off scenerio — of which I’m gleefully one.

I’m also planning out more observations on some of the work I’ve been doing along with commentary on current attitudes towards the practice. I also have some minor research I have to do to solidify some of my opinions or to figure out some of the theory behind, for example, why librarians seem to hate people who work in bookstores. I’m not the only one who has felt this, which is interesting because we should work together in a parallel manner but we seemingly are not.

My eyes are currently glazing over, so it’s time to hit the hay.
