Because my opinions are better than yours

Posts tagged mp3

Because I specialize in “nerd” and in celebration of last Thursday’s season premiere of the sixth season of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” I whipped up a ringtone of the show’s all-too-catchy intro music that is available for download below.  But before you download you must always learn, so here is what Wikipedia has on Heinz Kiessling’sTemptation Sensation:”

The theme song is a piece of production music called “Temptation Sensation” by German composer Heinz Kiessling. Additionally, Kiessling’s work (“On Your Bike” and “Blue Blood”) can also be heard during various scene transitions throughout the show, along with other composers and pieces such as Christopher Movick (“Off Boradway”), Joe Brook (“Moonbeam Kiss”) and Karl Grell (“Honey Bunch”). Many of the tracks heard in the series have been taken from Cafe Romantique, an album of easy listening production music collected by Extreme Music, the production music library unit of Sony/ATV Music Publishing. Independent record label, Fervor Records has also contributed music to the show. Songs from The Jack Gray Orchestra’s album, Easy Listening Symph-O-Nette (“Take A Letter Miss Jones”, “Golly Gee Whiz”, and “Not a Care in the World”) and the John Costello III release Giants of Jazz (“Birdcage”, “Cotton Club” and “Quintessential”) are heard in several episodes. The soundtrack, featuring most of the music heard on the show was released on September 1, 2010.

Now, on to the stealing sharing:

You can download the ringtone in .m4r format (open it up, and it should go directly to the “Ringtones” section of iTunes) right here:

Or feel free to just listen to the song (while all your other friends gain popularity with their cool new “It’s Always Sunny” ringtone…) below:

Below you can enjoy Souls of Mischief performing their hip-hop classic “93 til Infinity” from a show in Santa Clara this past weekend.  It’s been seventeen years since its release, and the song still hasn’t gotten old to me…


And if for some reason you don’t have this one in your collection, you can download the studio version of “93 til Infinity” right here (right-click then “save as”) or (if you’re not into the whole “piracy” thing) listen to it below:

To the greatest announcer in sports history: we’ll miss you…

Harry Kalas R.I.P.

Harry Kalas R.I.P.

Harry Kalas, the Phillies’ long-time, Hall-of-Fame announcer, died today after collapsing in the broadcasting booth in Washington.  He was 73 and one of the most beloved figures in Philadelphia sports history.  The Phils have cancelled their Tuesday trip to the White House and, as of right now, are set to play a game (somehow) 20 minutes from now.

At least he was able to make this call last October, in what will, perhaps, go down as the most famous call in Philadelphia sports history:

UPDATE (3:30PM): You can find links to download a couple of Harry’s calls in last year’s World Series as ringtones and as .mp3′s in my World Series Ringtones post.

UPDATE 2 (1:00AM): I’ve been reading Harry tributes all day and night, and not only have I solved the mystery of the Phils’ cigarette smoking before today’s game, but I’ve almost certainly just read the best tribute yet. Kudos to Bill Lyon from the Inquirer for a superb homage to our hero.

Imagine your ringtone = this

Are you having trouble convincing your friends that you didn’t actually just hop on the Phillies bandwagon immediately after the NLCS? Do you want to show that you’ve actually been a devoted Phillies fan your entire life, so much so that you have them as your ringtone? Or maybe you just had to leave for the Democratic Republic of the Congo 35 minutes before the start of Game 5 and end up having to watch them clinch by yourself in Central Africa, so now you feel that hearing Harry Kalas call the final strike of the World Series every time your phone rings is the closest thing to having been in town when the Phils actually clinched?*  Regardless of the reason, if you want that Phillies World Champion ringtone then you’ve come to the right place!

Phillies World Series Champions iPhone Ringtones

NOTE: These have only been tested with the iPhone, and I am pretty sure that they will only work with an iPhone.  However, I’m more than willing to put them up as .mp3′s or whatever else that will help get them onto your phone; I’m kind of a nerd, so just let me know, and I’ll see what I can do. You can also click here to learn how to turn your mp4 to mp3.

How to Get Them On Your iPhone

First, to download a file, just right-click on the link and click on “Save Link As” (or the equivalent).  When they are finished downloading and you double-click/open the files, they should automatically go to the “Ringtones” section of ITunes.  From there you just plug your iPhone in, drag them from the “Ringtones” section onto your phone and, voila: get ready to relive the greatest moment of your life over-and-over again every single day (depending on how cool you are)!

*Yes, that was me. And, no, I don’t want to talk about it.  Ever.

UPDATE (4/13/09): In response to the activity on my blog today in response to the passing of Harry Kalas, I’ve added links to download all the ringtones as .mp3′s below each one, with the hope that everyone can now hold onto a piece of that beautiful voice forever.

Just a few weeks ago I posted a final-exams-limited offering entitled “Jonah Hill Day.” In it, I posted a video of Yeezy playing Connect 4 with Mr. Hill to which I had taken a particular liking because of a song Kanye plays in the background. At the time I mentioned that:

“the song Kanye puts on in the background is maybe the best song ever, and you’re probably wondering what it is. It’s his own remix of Lil Wayne’s “Lollipop,” and it’s sick as hell. I’ll try to get an illegal link to it soon.”

Well, “soon” apparently meant 25 days because I have obtained said promised illegal link.   The song in the background was Lil’ Wayne’s remix to “Lollipop” featuring Kanye West, and, as predicted, it is the best song ever. So please enjoy your new favorite song (click the play button to listen or just trust me and click the title to download):

EDITOR’S NOTE: You are not hearing things; always the advocate of practicing safe sex, Weezy does, indeed, utter the following insane lines:

“Safe sex is great sex, better wear a latex, cuz you don’t want that late text, like that ‘I think I’m late’ text.”

Just nasty.

Simon’s New Favorite Song

I’ve also decided to introduce a new section this week entitled “Simon’s New Favorite Song,” wherein I project what will be Simon’s favorite song in a few months, after it has already debuted, peaked and subsequently fallen off the Billboard Top 100. This week’s song is only a snippet because, apparently, the online rap stealers have failed to obtain the entire version thus far. But it is otherwise obvious that this will almost definitely eventually be a “Simon Jam.”

Basing this new series of posts on my reputation at finding new/good music, the likes of which remain undiscovered by popular culture until a few years later when they become the new Maroon 5 (i.e. Jason Mraz, Dispatch, Guster, um O.A.R., the Beatles, etc.), I figured it was about time that I give back to you all, so that you can see how it feels to flash that “sick-new-song feeling” all over town.  

THIS WEEK’S JAM: Lil Wayne (feat. T-Pain) – Got Money

For those non-computer-types, i.e. Ethan: click the little speaker-type button above to listen to the song immediately, and/or click on the title of the song above to download it to your personal collection – and, yes, I did receive permission from both Lil’ Wayne and T-Pain to distribute their song for free.

 

Now bump to that hotness.

Remember this? That Jerky Boys prank call where the Indian guy is yelling at his “neighbor” and telling him that he kicked his dog? Well, if not, listen to it now; the link is below.

If you have heard it before, trust me: somehow it popped into my head tonight, so I found it online and then listened to it expecting to be let down but it is still freaking hysterical.
