Now people with totally weird and different taste has worked out wonderfully well. And that's how I like my music to be - Different and new all the time. Even completely random comments on a site such as youtube has helped me find stuff .

I've also found a lot of great stuff looking through record label catalogs. And of course, there's the "reading about bands influence and collaborations" part as well. So, yeah. I guess thats about it.
The amount of people who like the same things I do down to every last detail, obviously, are few and far between. However, I don't restrict myself to a specific genre or anything of the sort, so when someone gives me a mix CD, I give it a chance, and most of the time I like at least one or two things.
For your listening pleasure...

I couldn't tell you how I find the music that I like

I found my passion for Japanese music at age 14 when I used to go to Japan Club at school and I wanted to find out more to do with their culture and music.
Although, my specific favourite artists are quite random.

I found Emilie Autumn on YouTube.... back in 2005 I believe, I was looking through random 'home-made' music videos and someone used the song What If and I fell in love with it.

As for John Barrowman.... well I've had a passion for musicals since I was really young (I don't know why since no one else in my family likes musicals) and my love for his musical work specifically is quite recent and it began when I saw him in Robin Hood last month (so yes very recent) and his voice just blew me away and I then had to find more.

So I can tell you the back-stories of where I found some of my favourite artists.... however, there is nothing that links the way I found out about them.

Take a genre you like/want to check out, go to Pandora, click the genre, click the sub genre (however they do that), listen, thumbs up/thumbs down.

That works for me.

Usually works very well. The only probably though I have found with Pandora is if you put in a very mainstream bands such as Audioslave, everything that is played will be almost equally as mainstream. I always tend to start my stations with a lesser known band so that new ones I have never heard will come up.
