The recommendation engine is scaring me.

I’m driving home with a load of groceries, listening to Morning Becomes
Eclectic on KCRW and I hear a Z-trip song (with one of the J5 guys
Dakir (sp?))  Thinking: Cool, I haven’t heard much about him since
days he did sets in Phoenix, glad to hear him, nice cut, etc. etc.

Two minutes ago, out of nowhere the mail notifier goes off:

Amazon.com Customer,

We’ve noticed that customers
who have purchased
by Handsome Boy Modeling School also purchased the work of
Z-Trip. For this reason, you might like to know that Z-Trip’s Shifting
will be released on April 19, 2005. You can pre-order your copy
at a savings of 15% by following the link below.

It’s kind of spooky, but it does help in my search for Slack -
Slack in this case being not having to think about a thing and having
content served up to me. Eat your heart out MMJB/YME – This
recommendation just blew the ass out of anything I’ve seen on my home
page in the respective  products…
