So, here's how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button

Some very interesting selections came out of this. If only I could say that iTunes' shuffle algorithm actually knew what kind of music it was picking. Sadly, this is simply the randomness of nature. I would definitely recommend most if not all of these tracks to anyone wanting to hear more of whats out there.

On a different note, the new and improved journal system is very much near completion. I've overcome the debilitating design hurdles I encountered a couple months ago and am not on a straight shot to being finished. Just in time for me to have found the next language I'll port it to...Smalltalk :)
