Yesterday I arrived at my office and did the normal shit that I do to start my day. One of those things is to get my headphones out and get some music going so I can block out all of the ridiculous noise that happens outside of my office. Noise like forklifts and food service because those two things totally go together. Not only am I a music lover, I also like to stay on the cutting edge of technology and I recently discovered this new thing called Pandora Radio. You should totally check it out, Internets. It’s pretty awesome. You heard it here first!
Wait. What? Pandora launched in 2000??? And it had 100 million users in 2011?
Anywhoooo, I launched my browser yesterday, clicked on favorites and lovingly hit up Pandora and waited for the magic to fill my ears. But a new screen popped up. An evil screen, you guys. A screen that said The Company had blocked the site.
What. The. FUCK?????
I had to process The Company payroll and if those fuckers want to get paid they shouldn’t deny me my Zen that is my goddamn music! Fucking jerks. I even upgraded to the commercial free version of Pandora (it’s really not a new thing?) because I got sick of Panera Bread getting so excited about their stupid fucking breakfast sandwiches while I was trying to make sure 365 employee’s union medical insurance was getting paid correctly.
As I tried to find alternate music sites to get me by I realized I work for Communist China because every fucking music site under the sun has been blocked.
So, this post is my way of saying I will miss the bands that helped me get through the stress of my job through the magic that is Pandora. I’ll miss my Rob Zombie station the most.
Nine Inch Nails
Oh my shit! I was totally kidding with that last one! Nipsey Russel??? As if! But that’s just fun to say. Heh, Nipsey Russell…

* my dad is super awesome and totally NOT demon-like. Rob Zombie without his super-awesome-creepy makeup looks a bit like my dad which is totally a compliment in my book.
