I tune in somewhat reluctantly to the feed at the thinly disguised waste of time calling itself lifehacker. How thrilled can a person get about fifty time-saving, life-improving methods a day? A universe of hacky-hack-hackity tech tips and tricks may tickle Cory Doctorow in his secret place, but for the rest of us a consuming tech fetish is mainly an annoying waste of time.

BUT, I'm a big fan of streaming your own audio, which is what this lifehacker post is about.

I had a dream that you set me up with this job in a new town that you were originally supposed to do, but since you couldn't, I was going to take the job in your place, which seemed fine to me since I was new in town and needed a job--but when I got there I found out you'd told them I was a PhD, and also a Marine. I tried to make up for not being either by playing them a song on the piano. I don't know whether it convinced anyone, though.

That was real, and they were convinced. The lyrics "sing us a song you're the doctor sarge" to the tune of piano man was what sold them. The fools.

Great. Now not only will I be at a job I'm not qualified for, I'll also have that song stuck in my head.
