Muziek speelt op de Sonos van op Spotify; Last.fm verzamelt dat en stuurt elke week naar Twitter wat de meest beluisterde artiesten zijn in huis.

Everything you never wanted to know about the mites that eat, crawl, and have sex on your face | Not Exactly Rocket Science | Discover Magazine

Spotify Classical Playlists: Frank Zappa: Chronological Discography (available soon on Spotify)
I put all Zappa albums into one playlist, sorted by release date. From Freak Out!, debut of the Mothers of Invention, to the posthumous release Mystery Disc. You can subscribe to it now and (hopefully) the tracks will be available as soon as the last license issues are sorted out. If you are a premium user, you can set the playlist, or some tracks, as available offline, so you will know when the playlist/tracks become available (to download) without checking everyday.
