Downloads, Things, and WhatNot

Hello my chickadees. First off, pretty good day to be a Texan. *wipes tear of joy and relief at Shuttle Launch being successful* Confidential to anelith: the captain? She goes to my in-law's church. And Lance Armstrong? 7 times, cancer survivor... Hell, yes. (Okay, and he dumped his wife for a celebrity, but... 7 time winner! Cancer survivor! *ahem*)

Because I have a gazillion things to pay for this month, ie: 2 sets of braces, dental/ortho trips, eye exams, new clothes, etc., I am YET AGAIN behind on mailing out the Faith CDs to everyone. I mean, at last count it was 105 disks all over the globe. Yow.

So. Here's the solution. Click here to download the monster file. Playlist is included in Word format.

Seriously, it's huge. HOWEVER. If you have issues with large downloads (like, say, an episode of a program) you should download and install THIS program, then copy and paste the link above on the "click here to download" page. Good for dial-ups, etc. And, if it times out because of too many hits, it'll remember where you left off and pick up there when I upload the file again. Neato!

PLEASE comment that you are taking. I don't care if we are friended to each other or not, have at the music. Just, you know, remember that I made it and don't try and pawn it off as your own. Yeah, it's music, but still - I worked hard to put this together. Thanks!

Would you mind if I snagged a copy when I get home?

OF COURSE NOT, SILLY!! The whole reason I went with the ad heavy (for me, at least) MegaUpload was so there would be unlimited downloads.

I have a bunch of these in my memories under CD PROJECT of 2004. Fred and SPANGEL are my Dark Side of the Moon and White Album. Ha! It tells you why I chose the song, where it fits in the chronology, etc. It was a LOT of fun, and got some good responses. I'll eventually get them all online. Last year I mailed out over 250 CDs and I just shouldn't do that again... Baby needs a new pair of shoes. Manolos. Heee!

Oh, you rock like a rocking thing! That download manager program is awesome... it's happily plugging away at the Faith CD as I type.

I think I saw those in your memories at one point and drooled significantly over them... I know I've at least seen the Faith one, and hence the squeefulness of the download-y goodness.

And ack! to the mailing out of so many CDs... I'm guessing that was a fair number of shoes right there! But mmm.... Manolos. Or Jimmy Choos. Yum.

Thanks again for sharing! :D

GAH!!! I just checked my calendar: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Okay, so out of those playlists you saw and liked, any one in particular that YOU would like me to upload next? you get first dibs. (That's lame, I know, but OMG! Short notice because I'm scatterbrained and didn't check!)

Thank you!! I have been birthday princess all day... has been kinda fun! :D

And ooh! dibs! Dibs are NOT lame! (Although I'm afraid someone might maim me if I choose horribly...) I am fighting SO HARD against saying that I want "Endorsed," because it's awesome music with an interior laughtrack. But I think I'd rather see either Wesley or Spangel next, if that's OK?

Thank you again! :D

Whee! Thanks muchly!

Faith one was DLing all night... *sigh* dialup. But it was at 97% when I left for work, so I shall have hours of listening pleasure awaiting me when I get home, thanks to you.

Thanks again! :D

Hooray!! It's a megaupload, so it should be around for a minimum of 30 days.

Please do! I'll get the others up soon, too, so you can have the others I'm not able to get burned and mailed off to you.

Downloading now!
Thanks muchly!

Jul. 26th, 2005 03:20 pm (UTC)
Hooray! My goal is to put all of the mixes up like this so folks like you who wanted them all can get them all!

It's on megadownload, so the link shouldn't ever expire unless it goes dormant for more than 30 days. Hooray!

Dingledork! You have this! It's the Faith CD you got at StoneyWars. :-D

Maybe I could convince my folks to take the kids in the middle of the day one day this(or next) week and we hook up for 'ritas? I can't remember if the new job is full time or not.

Or suppertime?

Jul. 26th, 2005 03:24 pm (UTC)
Ha! See how bad I need a damn Margarita?! SEE???

Yay! YESSS! New job has not started yet, but it's part-time. It's also kind of hilarious or bizarre. Or possibly both. I can't wait to tell you about it.

I WANNA KNOW. Lemme see what Thursday this week looks like. Is that a good day for you? Wanna hook up at something like Blue Goose? Alternative locale?

Jul. 26th, 2005 04:09 pm (UTC)
Wheeee! Sounds awesome, girly! But there may be one hangup...it MIGHT be B's only day off this week. Lemme check with him when he gets in - late tonight, I do bet. They're finishing up some dang spot. Then he MAY go back to Walker. But if he's workin'? I'm so in. (You know how they get - all wanting to 'spend time together'. We're already married, duh! Doesn't always work. So I will so hollah back at you tonight. And if not Thursday, (which is my pref)would Monday or Tuesday woik?

Megadownload hates me for some reason, never be able to get downloads from there. I must have left it at the alter in a previous life. I may try it later.

Lance Armstrong: OMG! Did you hear about his heart size??? Insane.

Jul. 26th, 2005 04:44 pm (UTC)
If you keep having problems, email me. Yousendit kept crapping out on me, and they are no longer offering THEIR downlod manager. Poop. Did you get the manager I linked to? It helps out in those weird places when nothing else does...

LANCE!! OMG. His physical strength is amazing. I have a buddy (French) that has competed in the Tour du France three times, placed in the top 50, and he was just AMAZINGLY fit. But Lance? Holy hell.

Yay for Stoney! I'm stealing this! (Although I suppose it's not really stealing if you said to take it...)
Whenever I get music from LJ people I change the album names on the songs to the person's LJ name so I know who gave me or reccomended the song. My friend was confused when looking at my iPod - "WTF? Snoop Dogg's song Beautiful was on an album called Stoney321~Animal? Was that a soundtrack or something?" hee hee
stoney321
Jul. 26th, 2005 04:45 pm (UTC)
Heee!! I do that, too!

And it's not stealing when I GIVE it away! And now I'm thinking of Spongebob and Patrick stealing a balloon on free balloon day...

*sniff*
iTunes doesn't like two of the songs. Do you know of an easy way to convert WMA format to mp3 or AAC?

But Yay! The other 50 songs are all happily residing in my iTunes in a Stoney321 playlist for me to listen to at work tomorrow. I'd also like to throw them on a disk for my friend lucky13charm, if that's ok with you? Full credit of your awesomeness given, of course!

ITunes will convert WMAs to MP3s or AACs.

edit>preferences>importing>import using: MP3 Encoder>ok

then

file>add file to library>browse to the wma file>yes on the "do you want to covert box" that pops up

Voila!

You are a genius! :) I never even thought of using the whole "import" thing. I was using the brainless drag & drop into iTunes library thing.

Two sets now, then MY set at the end of the year. Yow. I was going to do it this spring, but then I decided I wanted to go on trips, first. *sigh*

One thing I've learned about orthodonture: get them in EARLY to save money. My daughter is going to be easier to fix than my son. Yipes.

Please let me know if you can't get it, Anne, m'kay?

Hooray!! I love this mix... This one and the SPangel may be my favorite... Except for Fred, which I think is the most "artistic" one.

Keep you eyes posted here for more uploads throughout the week.

Ooooo, more music? Yum!

I will use them to fill up my SpanderPod!

We interupt this boring ass work day...
...to squee loudly and hug Stoney until she can't breath! Then we'll let her breath & then we'll hug her some more!
I'm listening to my newly downloaded Faith mix here at work with a print out of your reasons for picking the songs (from your 5-19-05 entry) and it is totally making my day better. :)Lots of really cool kick ass songs! And really, where else could you go from Marilyn Manson to Elvis Presley 6 songs later?
I'll now be anxiously awaiting the Spander one, the Spangel one, and anything else your mix-goddess self puts up!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
