New Pandora Player – Unlimited Listening! | Courtney Social Media Consultant in Los Angeles

· Friday, September 23rd, 2011 in Apps and Software · 0 Comments

Around the same time Facebook made some major updates, Pandora made some as well.

You probably weren’t paying attention because you were too busy b*tching about Facebook. *smirk*

The “New Pandora” boasts the same personalized radio experience you’ve enjoyed for years, wrapped in a new HTML5 look that makes it more responsive, easier to use, and better integrated with the friends and music lovers in your life.

Of the few new features that have been added to the New Pandora, the only things I really care about are:

  • Discovery of Music with Friends
  • Simplified Station Creation
  • And Unlimited Listening – No more 40 hour cap!

As with all of the latest web applications, they’ve finally added the Facebook API, allowing you to connect with your friends and see what they’re listening to.

I’m guessing you’ll like the updates Pandora made more than you’ll like the updates that Facebook has coming next week.

Buckle up, folks! Social media is about to get even more interesting!


Mix: Summer 2011 Workout Mix – Volume #3 | Courtney Social Media Consultant in Los Angeles

· Tuesday, July 19th, 2011 in Music · 2 Comments

It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these. So this one is 1.5 hours to keep you busy throughout this summer.

Sometimes people ask me what music I use to work out / run at the gym.
I thought I’d post it here in case others wanted to know.
I’m all about music that keeps me moving when I’m at the gym, so it’s pretty much all Hip-Hop, R&B, and Pop.

So this workout mix is for:
Cardio: 90 Minutes
Cool Down: 8 – 10 Minutes

Skullcandy | Courtney Social Media Consultant in Los Angeles

I scored some Skullcandys today because my Phillips earbuds gave up on me.

Contrary to the BestBuy and other online reviews, I’ve been hearing nothing but negative things about them.

As long as they’re louder than the treadmills around me, and don’t get in the way, I think they should be fine.

I like them so far!

World Star Hip Hop Shutdown By Feds? Or 50 Cent? | Courtney Social Media Consultant in Los Angeles

· Monday, January 24th, 2011 in Music · 1 Comment

According to several sources, federal authorities have shut down the popular urban website, WorldStarHipHop.com. The site went down without warning earlier today (January 24th).

WorldStar is known for showing rap videos, footage of rappers engaging in ignorant behavior, fights, news clips and the occasional sex tape. If it was outrageous, it probably sourced WorldStarHipHop.com. Matter of fact, when I think WorldStarHipHop.com, I think of 50 Tyson the rapper. Ha!

Federal authorities have already shut down the sites, OnSmash and Rap Godfathers, last year as well as several torrent sites. Rapper 50 Cent has claimed that he is responsible on Twitter:

In November 2009, 50 Cent filed a lawsuit against the website, claiming his image and content were used on the website without his permission.

The story behind this will get interesting, I’m sure.

Pandora One for Productivity | Courtney Social Media Consultant in Los Angeles

· Wednesday, January 12th, 2011 in Apps and Software · 4 Comments

Music keeps me working. It’s as if I do more work when music is playing in my ear. Using Pandora One for Productivity doesn’t sound like a bad idea.

Pandora Keeps Me Sane

I finally end a “never-ending” conference call, and the appropriate “f*ck that b*atch” song comes on and I’m back in the swing of it all cursing and designing.

It’s great.

Using Pandora Web & Mobile Applications

I usually have the Pandora website playing in the background because I like being able to select an artist and having them create a playlist based on who I chose. They’ll play my favorite songs, but they’ll also throw in some new ones that I usually like as well. If I like the new songs, I’ll open up Google and download the song to add to my iTunes to throw into my daily run or workout.

Pandora One Features Spark Interest

Today, I thought about simply purchasing Pandora One so that I can take advantage of some of the features that they’ve listed.

  • Unlimited Listening
  • No Ads
  • Higher Quality Audio
  • Fewer Interruptions
  • Custom Skins

Now, I’m a designer, so you know when I saw ‘Custom Skins’ my thought was, “Suh-weeet! Maybe it’s like FireFox and WinAmp! Maybe they’ll have a Community where I can create and share my own Skin!” But I don’t think Pandora does that yet. If someone in development hasn’t come up with that idea yet, they need a new development team. My ideas are available for hire…kinda.

I think I might purchase it today and see how it is. I’ll let you know.

If you have it, let ME know what YOU think.
