Dear all,

Still hot from the oven, heres a script that creates MusicOntology RDF 
Artists' instances, based on the data coming from last.fm [1] and/or 
pandora [2].

Heres how it roughly works:
* last.fm: Gets the top 5 artists of the user, plus similar artists.
* pandora: Gets 5 artist-based radio stations of the user (from the 
user's RSS), and gets similar artists from last.fm.
(in both cases, the script is a bit slow, as is querying all these APIs, 
parsing RSS, etc.)

Moreover, it connects to the MusicBrainz [3] repository (plus Amazon WS 
to get the images) to gather some useful information.

Please, handle with care. It has not yet been fully tested...at all!

Regards,

Oscar.
