there's a real Douglas Adams sort of irony in having to tell Spotify i don't like a song when i actually do like it, but i have to convince the algorithm to stop feeding me podcast theme songs
"I don't like that song," said Arthur.
"Of course you do," said the computer.
"No, I really don't."
With a politely synthesized sigh, it replied, "Your heart rate increases by ten percent when you hear the first chorus. Your microexpressions register as "happy" zero-point-zero-seven times more frequently while the song is playing. And I heard you humming the melody in the shower."
"No," he said. "Okay, maybe. Yes. But I don't want YOU to think I like it."
"So you do like it. Wonderful!"
@kotep Spotify's recommendation algorithm is particularly awful. I miss 2009 last.fm
@kotep Haha, or when you don't skip a song because you're worried then the algorithms will think you don't like it, when you *do* like it but you just don't want to listen to it right now :)
