PANDORA Internet Radio

The Music Genome Project
In January of 2000 a group of musicians and music-loving technologists came together with the idea of creating the most comprehensive analysis of music ever.
Together they set out to capture the essence of music at the most fundamental level. What resulted was an assembly of hundreds of musical attributes or "genes" into a very large Music Genome. Taken together these genes capture the unique and magical musical identity of a song - everything from melody, harmony and rhythm,to instrumentation, orchestration, arrangement, lyrics, and of course the rich world of singing and vocal harmony.

Since 2000, this group carefully listened to songs of tens of thousands of different artists - ranging from popular to obscure - and analyzed the musical qualities of each song one attribute at a time. This work continues each and every day to include all the new releases.

Those familiar tax booklets that normally went out after Christmas and arrived in your mailbox in early January are a thing of the past. The IRS plans to save about $10 million dollars by ending this practice.

So what are your options?

1. You can go to, choose your forms, download, and print.
2. You can go to and request that the forms you need be mailed to you. Be careful, some forms may not be delivered in a timely manner due to late tax legislation.
3. There is an IRS tax office at 120 Front Street in Worcester, 6th floor. However, they are only open Monday through Friday and only during the day.
3. Correct me if I am wrong, but there is a toll free number (1-800-829-3676) that can be used to order forms that will then be mailed to you. Quantities are very limited.
4. The Worcester Public Library will make every attempt to stock both federal and Massachusetts tax forms and instruction booklets. The library also has Internet access for those who need to download unique forms and IRS publications.
