A few days ago I downloaded the latest version of iTunes, which features a new thing they're calling "Genius Shuffle", which makes some rather highfalutin' claims about its ability to put music together. I chose to take this as a challenge to my own abilities in that line, and my 9.30.13 show is my response. Using only the music in my iTunes library (all of which is also in the A24R library), I programmed one hour and let the "Genius" program the other. Now I'd like to know--can you tell which is which? And if so, which did you like better? The show, and the playlist, divided into First Hour and Second Hour segments, can be found right now, and for the next couple of weeks, in the Vault. Check it out, make your guess, and report it here as a comment. If you want, you can write to me at email@example.com. Thanks for playing--tell your friends & neighbors they can play too!
So--although the results I got were not statisticslly significant (as they say inthe Science Dodge), I did get some results. As it was for John Henry, my victory was at best symbolic; the steam drill having won the actual contest. On the plus side, unlike JH, I did not die in the contest. Which leaves me in the position to demand a rematch on a more level playing field. Film at 11.
