Summer QuickMix

Never really got into Pandora over the years. My music collection now being spread out across Dropbox, Google Music, and Amazon. Tried Spotify, didn't really like it. Scroble to last.fm whenever possible. But I've felt the collection has seen too many summers without much updating.

So I went to Pandora and looked for the surf rock genre, which wasn't there. So I made a summery quickmix:
  • Dick Dale
  • Ottmar Liebert + Luna Negra
  • Los Straitjackets
  • Little Joy
  • Love
  • Reggae genre
Just the right amount of summer for me this year. Now let's go sailing.

A Picasa Annoyance

Google's properties (with the exception of Sites, I think) use Picasa to store your images in automatic, system-created albums - but it doesn't treat these albums any differently than your own personal albums. As such, they become scattered about your album list and you can easily lose track of them. To give you an idea, here's a list of automatically-created albums I can pick out of my hundred or so personal albums:

  • Photos from posts (Google+)
  • Instant Upload (Google+)
  • Drop Box (Picasa)
  • 1 album per Blogger blog (Blogger)
  • Blogger Pictures (appears to contain several sizes of my Blogger profile picture; Blogger)
  • Profile Photo (Google Profiles)
  • Scrapbook Photos (Google Profiles) 
Google has a good opportunity coming up for fixing this when they re-brand Picasa to Google Photos. Also; it'd be nice if there was an option for Google Sites to do image hosting via Picasa.
