Sharp Eye + Heart For Exploration


My ‘sharp eye’ seems to have failed me noticing that Spotify actually has a ‘thumbs up’ and ‘thumbs down’ button. I recently noticed it while writing Story #20. It only seems to show up if I select 'radio'. Though I am not sure how long it'll take before I find a track that I could give a 'thumbs up'.

I was enjoying the weird selection: from calm tracks, to 90's grunge, progressive rock...even if I had to tell my 'music butler' (I know...it's the AI) no to one track after the other. I should note though...I probably would tag at least one track from that box. It's not the genre...it's the track.

There's the interesting track by 'Third Eye Blind' that sounds like...well...different!




When it seems like the system has taken me back to the start (maybe it just felt that way? And there was moire?). I look at the playlist called 'Your Release Radar' and clicked play. I was hit with the realisation: the tracks earlier were from my time-capsule curated playlist.

Another thing: if I clicked on individual tracks within that playlist --- no thumbs up or down. Nice move Spotify. Blind listening is usually the best. Well, 'blind' in a sense that I have no idea what's coming next.





And looked like I was mistaken --- there is only one curated playlist that a listener can 'yay' or nay' tracks. So if you click play and you find yourself without the 'two thumbs', right click on a playlist and select 'Start Radio'

After a number of no's (and one track that I like but after reading the lyrics decided to skip it), I finally found my first daily playlist discovery: 'Lose It All' from Touch Sensitive!


I wanna know
(If I lose it all, if I lose it all)
Would you be a friend now

Feeling the feels with you,

PS: Look for the online link to this message
to see the gif! If it doesn't
show up, you can grab the link from the archive.

PPS: Some additional options to help you find
the next track you get excited about! :)

PPPS: I've decided to do away looking for gif fillers
within the entry and just focus on finding photos
for each entry header (bye bye my bench photo!). The
photo for this entry
is courtesy of Cathy Shrout. I thought
that image would reflect well thinking about how I was
building up my daily playlist.


PPPPS: Because I have been asked if there is a playlist that has all
the discoveries from the project...I have obliged. If you spot a track that
doesn't have a corresponding entry...it may have yet to be scheduled.
I know! I should put together a YouTube Playlist too as a number of
live performances are quite different from the studio version.
