well, I dig spotify and am working on a couple of playlists

here's one I'll share to those with this nifty (though not as good as it can be (i.e. no advanced search feature, yet)) tool
Punk and Rock classics collection (oh, and it's faaaaaaaar from completed)
http://open.spotify.com/user/shaddowmas ... dkkLXaFJUa

EDIT: Don't bother that much with setting up a grand playlist in the beta, they're changing files all the time as they get better stuff from the license holders, i.e. the older files are being removed, thus you lose parts of your playlists... like I lost about half my above mentioned playlist while I was away... :(

Wow, yeah this is way spaced out!

Also; Bill I got a bunch of playlists on my account, if you can find me feel free to subscribe to them
You got me on facebook, so if you sync spotify with FB you can find me in your friends list ^^

So does spotify cost anything? I'd happily try it but I refuse to pay!

I don't even notice the spotify adverts half the time, atm i'm just listening to the top100 and not bothering making a playlist, or listening to Tenacious D whilst playing RIFT beta.
