What Do You Recommend?
A Boston Globe article -- recommended by Priv8Pete -- details the difficulties that websites have in making recommendations to their users. Anyone who has seen Amazon and Netflix make some wacky recommendation because of an item you bought or looked at knows what they mean. ("If you liked "Citizen Kane," you'll love "Van Wilder 2!") Of course, you already know what to do: come to Popsurfing and see what I'm enjoying. My latest CD pleasure? My Chemical Romance's "The Black Parade," which is loud and fun and melodic, sort of like Green Day's "American Idiot" without the politics.
