Last.fm: better than sliced bread

For the last few days, I've been listening to music through last.fm. I've been using them for a while, mostly to post the little list over in the sidebar of what I'm listening to. And I have listened to the radio thingy through them before. But the last few days, I've discovered the joy of entering in several artists I like and then they generate a radio station with songs by other people I might like. I've discovered Elliot Smith and Rilo Kiley. I'm sure some of you cooler people out there will think I'm a loser, but hey, I don't have teenagers yet to point me to good music. Scrivener got me onto to Iron and Wine. After that, I've been on my own. Now I wish I had tons of money to plop down on new music.
