Shazamit! Vol II

shazamit!

If you read my first Shazamit! post, you know how scared fascinated I am by “the computers” and the many ways in which they are slowly but surely taking over the world. Soon they will be doing all of our thinking for us. For now, they must content themselves with worming their way into our lives by performing dazzling tricks, such as instantly identifying random songs that we hear playing in the grocery store or Starbucks.

i’ve decided to open up my shazam history for your viewing pleasure. since i have over 50 tags i’m gonna break this up and do a few at a time. for our first shazamit! outing, please join me back in november of 2008…a time of wonder & merriment, when i first got my iPhone…
