weekly playlist #2.


okay, so i got a couple of emails from people asking me not to hide the playlists, so i’ve acquiesced…they’ll show up on the main page and will be available in an rss feed. blog reader danielle alerted me to a site that will (legally) allow me to post the entire playlist. there are a few limitations to the service (like advertisements and the fact that the playlist will not retain the same play order during after the first play), but it’s better than nothing. you’ll find the playlist widget at the bottom of the post, just before the comments section (i also posted the playlist for the first week here). as always, if you like the tracks, i encourage you to support the artist and buy the music via your favorite method. and as i mentioned last week, i encourage you to discuss the songs that have been posted, and to let me know what you’re listening to in the comments section below or via email.
