A Playlist Just For Shmans

Steve told me that Spotify can make playlists for your pets with some information from you, and I had to try it out and see if any of Shmans’s favourite songs would show up on her list. They didn’t, but the playlist sounds like something that might be found on an easy listening station and she enjoys those.

I did find it difficult to do because the sliders are a bit ambiguous. They do say “energetic” and “friendly” and “curious” but those words aren’t attached to the slider in any way so you’re not sure which way the sliders should go. The other clues people get about whether they have gone the right direction are pictures of their chosen pet showing curiosity or lack thereof, so those aren’t going to help.

In the interest of time, I got Aira to help me, and this is the result. What an interesting result it is.

  1. Some interesting picks there. Some of it definitely sounds like things she would enjoy. If she doesn’t, I will. Good call on the Los Lobos. And that Flupandemic song is hilarious. I don’t know if it’s supposed to be, but it is.

    I kind of want to make one for her using my Spotify. We could set the same temperament variables, but my listening history is quite a bit different from yours so I’d be interested to see how it comes out.

  2. Ha. So that’s why that song has been running around in my head all week for no particular reason. Beams. sorry. You aren’t in my head, so you don’t know what song I’m referring to. I am referring to the driving of the deer. I’m pretty sure I introduced you to that song did I not?
