Helen's Favorite Links
- All Music Guide -- this great site keeps track of which songs singers have sung in...it's great for me since I'll hear a song and say "Isn't that so and so?" and I'll go look it up and sometimes I'm right :) also I like to know which artists are collaborating on projects
- Hype Machine -- aggregator of music blogs, allows you to listen to music tracks that various music blogs publish, it also allows you to bookmark favorite songs and also to follow blogs
- Lala -- allows you to "upload" your music so that you can play songs that they have in their library wherever you can get internet access. Also allows you to buy music tracks if you want
shopping sites for music and movies:
- SecondSpin -- relatively decent prices on used CDs and movies, selection for indie rock and electronica isn't all that great though. best for popular music.
- Netflix -- where I rent all my DVDs
- slashdot -- news for geeks, I used to be more obsessed with this, but art is my new passion now
