I see myself more like uh, a comatose patient on House, drooling from a mysterious & as yet undiagnosed music-induced ailment that interferes with all my other brain and voluntary bodily functions. 1 day ago
tod nelson I believe Apple isn’t going to allow the Rdio iPad and iPhone app to have too many features. I don’t think it’s Rdio’s fault at all. 1 day ago
GrEtcHen Fair enough. I’d like to see the same for the iphone app. Sometimes it’s like standing around with one’s nose pressed to the glass, while everyone else is partying on the other side. * 🙁 @ work* 1 day ago
tod nelson Now DC is listening to Eurythmics? What is the world coming to? Ha. I should talk.
@Gretch–it’s news to me. I’m on Facebook a lot, and it’s the first time I’ve clicked through from email to an all-music stream feed.
And to me, you are more Julie the Cruise Director from the Love Boat than Anita Bryant. Ha. (If you want to flip me off for that, I’ll understand!) 1 day ago
CAW a.k.a. The Aquatic Ape And, HEY – no adding snarky comments post-facto. Dish ’em up front, honey – I can take it! 1 day ago
CAW a.k.a. The Aquatic Ape Fair enough. Me, I’m curmudgeonly about rdio as ever. If, for example, that good-but-not-great iPad app doesn’t get upgraded so that you can post from it, I’m get start a right nasty public bitching ’round here. And wasn’t it like a month ago or something when Wilson Miner said that a private-playlists function was on the horizon? 1 day ago
GrEtcHen This is true. But man, please consider I’m merely as giddy about Rdio as everyone else is. I don’t need to be paid anything to gush ad infinitum/nauseam/hoc.
Now, did I hear that right? Shallow brain pan? Shallow gene pool? what? 1 day ago
CAW a.k.a. The Aquatic Ape Hey, cut me some slack. I already admitted how brain-washed I was by 70s and 80s television – I’ve got a pretty shallow pool to dip into when searching for analogies. I mean, anyway, you clearly have listened to way more disco, Bronski Beat and Queen than Anita Bryant EVER would have. 1 day ago
GrEtcHen naw, I’m stupid, I give it away for free.
(and a big middle finger for comparing me to Anita Bryant. Jerk!) 1 day ago
CAW a.k.a. The Aquatic Ape Gretchen, what Anita Bryant was to orange juice and Florida sunshine, you are to rdio. Do you get kick-backs to say this stuff? 1 day ago
GrEtcHen tod, I think it’s been that way for quite a while?
Welcome Johnny. It sounds like maybe you haven’t quite discovered one of the biggest pluses at Rdio: a ton of people who can help you discover music. The social aspect at Rdio far exceeds any other streaming service. It helps to follow quite a few people, so you can see all parts of the conversations going on here.
On that note, I’m happy to see Rdio has restored the notification that appears when someone starts following someone else. That’s been a helpful tool for me to learn about interesting new-to-me people here. I think it keeps the network of people finding and talking to each other strong. 1 day ago
CAW a.k.a. The Aquatic Ape Don’t get ‘Metric goin’ on Musical Youth, tod. He’ll “hum-diddly-hum-diddly-diddly-hum-diddly-hum-diddly-diddly-dum” you all night long. 1 day ago
tod nelson Logged onto Facebook this evening to see a comment thread on the music I was playing and found that things have suddenly changed a lot! If you click on the music icon (blue) under Apps, you’ll see a feed of all the music related activity in your network on Facebook. And supposedly when Timeline is launched, it’s going to be even more impressive. (Pass the Dutchie, Dave?! I can see you. Ha. I love Musical Youth and recently turned my daughter onto them). 1 day ago
David Crompton Indeed–welcome Johhny. @Jason — I too have tempered my gushing [even though I’m still giddy inside.] It’s funny–I suspect the majority of people still find Rdio to be in the fringes somehow regardless of how well designed, easy to adopt and affordable it is. I think the fringe effect is true for the streaming space in general but even truer for Rdio. 1 day ago
