Ben's hip hop Twitter bot

Has anyone else seen @hemingway, this weird Twitter feed that just spouts Ernie quotes every once in a while? Well, tonight I decided to code up my own twist on the idea. Follow @mistadobalina to receive hourly bursts of verse from one of my favorite albums, I Wish My Brother George Were Here by Del Tha Funkee Homosapien.

The whole thing is automated by about 30-45 minutes worth of work. So don't expect any miracles. But all the code is over on github if anybody wants it. I had a couple problems (no matter what album I asked for, I was only getting track listings for Staind), but the LyricWiki SOAP service is a pretty sweet Web service.
