How Do You Find New Music?

Title says it. I'm curious to find out how other people find their tracks.

Me, I like blogs...but a quick Wiki on the artist first. Also use that free JB Hi-Fi mag and recently Last.fm

I tried to think up of all the options I could in the poll, sorry if I missed some :)

I pretty much don't. I might hear a song or two on the radio in passing, but that's it.

A few friends/family normally pass me on a few artists they think I will like.

The rest I normally run into when browsing Youtube and Usenet, and quite a few from films.

So friends, random and whatever looks interesting.

They say if you play a Micro$oft Cd backwards it has satanic messages on it.. Heck thats nothing.. Play it forwards and it'll install windows.

Well, that's why it was started.

IT didn't really work too well :(

Otherwise, it's games/movies. Very occasionally from friends.
But usually if I start listening to something new it's because I remembered hearing about a band and I finally get around to listening to them.

A challenge to a perceived consensus is a challenge to all the powers in human society, as it can take a person’s understanding of the world we live in, and flip it upside down.

Word of mouth, primarily - I hear about a band or artist on a forum or from a friend. Occasionally there's also last.fm or a simple impulsive acquisition.

Can't say I've gotten much new music lately, though.
