Whereas I like 100% of what's on my iPod.

To me, that's way more win. About 90% more.

Currently listening to books on tape so that by the time school starts I've already "read" most of the required reading.

I typically love books on tape and can rock through a whole book in a week but these school books suckkkkkkkkkk so I do an hour of book an hour of pandora and then switch back.


also for any racecar type peoples: I weighed my recaro pole position, steel side mounts, sparco seat bracket and a slider I found in the garage (apparently laying around from putting recaros in the jetta) the whole combo weighs in at 32.6lbs which means.......I can drop another 7.5lbs off of it and still be STX class legal.

I'm thinking use the sparco frame to get hole dimensions and then have my dad whip up some aluminum seat mounts like below and see where that gets me weight wise.

if I need to drop more weight I can switch from the steel side mounts to the aluminum ones.

Took me almost a year to find my house. Had to go thru two realtors to find a good one.

Glad i waited, this one has far more potential than the others.

To me, that's way more win. About 90% more.
my problem is that I'm terrible at finding new music and I'd rather search for new racecar parts than new music artists so pandora is great for me.

pick someone I know I like, start a station with them. like a bunch of songs that I like, dislike a bunch I dont like. within a week I've found some new song/artist I like. create a station with them and repeat.

I started with "shots by LMFAO" and from that 1 station I've progressed through snoop dogg, warren g, red jump suit, deadmau5, bass nectar, mikke snow, matt and kim etc.

for me its a great tool to find new stuff I like that I didnt know I liked.

Dont be afraid to find a new one.

The best thing was make a list of wants and must haves. Evaluate every house.

Stick to your budget, and do lots of driving. I would go drive looking for houses, use zillow to price them out. But make sure your realtor is someone you like and is doing what you want.

I bought a head unit that supports Bluetooth pandora. It connects to a pandora app on my smartphone. I can thumbs up or down songs through stereo buttons and the coolest thing about it is there are zero ads. Ever. I was gonna upgrade but thinking i won't now.
