Be careful what you click. If you decide later that you really don't like Bob Dylan after all, if you un-fave "Lay Lady Lay", the star loses its yellow but the song still remains in the list, marking your poor tastes forever. (I think, unless WFMU staff know a secret way to rid.)

while i was listening to the george winston, i looked inside one of the candles here burning in a jar and there's a tiny insect wing fluttering about in the currents in the molten wax and it seemed very lovely because what's not lovely when you're listening to that?
