So there's this program I really like. It's called Songbird, and it's basically a web browser (based on Mozilla/Firefox) and mp3 player (a.k.a. iTunes...). It makes it really easy to play music that you find on the web. It just came out with version 0.3 (biggest improvement in this release: tabbed browsing), and while not good enough to become my full-time browser or media player, it is a great idea and it's an awesome way to find new music--it links to a ton of cool music blogs that have cool music you've never heard and automatically adds mp3s on the site you're on to your playlist. Check it out if you're adventurous and a bit computer savvy. Or just go to some of the music blogs yourself, like Hype Machine or Skreemr. And don't worry, it works on Linux too!
