Salute the dark lord for breakfast at dinner

Pandora created by the Music Genome Project

From the desk of the very stressed Disco Donna, comes this potentially awesome pick. I'm listening now, and it turns out The Arctic Monkeys, in a synchopatiological (yes its a word) sense, sound alot like The Strokes, and the Black Keys. I disagree but still continue to rock the pererbial socks, perverbially (yes, its a word) off...so to speak.
Wil update t see if the playlist continues goodnessisity (not a word)

Pandoraâ„¢ is the doorway to this vast trove of musical information. With Pandora you can explore to your heart's content. Just drop the name of one of your favorite songs or artists into Pandora and let the Genome Project go. It will quickly scan its entire world of analyzed music, almost a century of popular recordings - new and old, well known and completely obscure - to find songs with interesting musical similarities to your choice. Then sit back and enjoy as it creates a listening experience full of current and soon-to-be favorite songs for you.
You can create as many "stations" as you want. And you can even refine them. If it's not quite right you can tell it more and it will get better for you.

No idea if this will work, but an RSS for my current favorites list might be viewable-> here?
