Its amazing to see how much time people are spending listening to music. Even more so than thier own productivity or social networking. Wow I think its amazing that these tools can bring it to the forefront of the mind. Although is it conveying music or "mixtapes" or "cover tunes." I have a hard time finding whats new and music to what some one sampled.
