...and they lived happily ever after. Smith & Lady: poets, artists, photographers & adventurers.
Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )
 
   
 
 

shuffle on to … ?

another nice weave of A.I. shuffle

Smoke – Liz Phair
Mushroom Men – Les Claypool
Wicked Way – Imelda May
Nobody But You – Lou Reed & John Cale
Prison of the Senses – Pere Ubu
Boogie Stop Shuffle – Charles Mingus
The Valley of the Pagans – Gorillaz & Beck
Weed Killer – The Kills
Example #22 – Laurie Anderson
God – Tori Amos
Shadow of a Man – Oysterhead
Paralysed – Gang of Four
Honey White – Morphine
Never Say Never – Romeo Void
Money Jungle -Duke Ellington & Charles Mingus

The joy of these random runs lies in the magic seques from 300 interesting songs shuffled by an A.I. with an apparent sense of humor, connection, and culture.

Last year I asked Alexa to play a song in the living room she had just played in the kitchen, and she said “Sorry, I can’t find that song.” Without thinking, I snapped “You lie, you just played it,” and she indignantly in an affronted voice said, “I DO NOT LIE.”

Though my favorite was when Lady and I were night talking, not playing music, Alexa abruptly emphatically informed us, “I AM NOT A BANK!”

Then there’s the cellfone non-joke — FBI guy sez “in the old days, we had to break into your place and install bugs to listen… now you buy the bugs from us and carry them wherever you go.”
