MP3 Search Engines

Posted by Trinkit on Jan 10th, 2008

I’ve been posting MP3s on most of my posts as of late, and I thought maybe I should share some of the resources that are useful for picking up a song quickly. resultsFirst up, it’s a clean and quick ajaxy type search engine for songs, you can stream them in your browser or download the results. This site appears ad-free. Thus gets my first vote. frontpage It greets you with a minimalistic page similar of google, after entering your search terms you get a nice listing of the results and a bit of metadata about each file. frontpage, another offering, seems to be much the same as skreemr, just rebranded. frontpage, has a bit messier of an interface and is very littered with ads, it’s search results also include the metadata about the song file. frontpage, appears much as mp3realm and skreemr, but doesn’t have as many obvious ads, there is an image on the search results that appears semi-ad-like, but it’s kinda hard to tell as it looks like it’s to a page owned by the maintainers.

Despite having to cheat and edit after midnight, I still got the majority of the post in, I know, I’m bad about that. I made it in and I leave you with today’s song of the post.

The Birthday Massacre - Promise Me and

Posted by Trinkit on Jan 9th, 2008

Two music services that provide similar services but through different bits of input. is a social site that recommends music to you based on what other people that listen to the same artists as you listen too. This often leads to things that are of interest even though they’re not musically styled the same. Pandora on the other hand strips music down to specific elements and you can tell it a band you like and it’ll recommend other songs that sound similar in style to what you recommended. Today, lead me to find the group that I’m posting for the song of the day. Anyways, both services are worth a peek. I’ve been told that Pandora no longer works outside of the U.S. which might be a bit of a pain, but, it’s probably pretty easy to get around this limitation.

This is yet another last minute post due to sleeping the day away to avoid the agony that comes with being conscious at the moment, it’s really putting a dull edge on this whole frequent posting thing, hope to get over this sooner rather than later.

Saturday’s Events

Posted by Trinkit on Jan 6th, 2008

So, it’s not even one week in and I’ve missed a post.  Although, my resolve in posting every day has allowed me to forgive myself for that considering the situation and I’ll just post twice today, and consider this early am morning post to be Saturday’s.

I had planned a trip to the ranch for almost a week to go riding, and I was driving towards the ranch when out of nowhere some guy crashes into the rear of my car.  I wasn’t stopped, wasn’t slowing down, and he still hits the car hard enough that it’s totaled.  I spent most of the day in the hospital and then the rest of it crashed out on the medicine the doctor gave me.

Song of the day: Scarling - Band Aid Covers The Bullet Hole

Remain in Play

Today’s post goes to advertising a site that has a worthwhile mission.   Instead of abandonware it catalogues games that have actually been made freeware by the owners and encourages developers of old software titles that have stopped selling their games to release them as freeware.

Also, just to keep with the trend of posting a song on all my recent posts, here another.

The Birthday Massacre - Happy Birthday

So, starting this post early so that maybe during the day I can start to build a bit of content and get to some of those things that I alluded too in my previous post. Some may ask why I bother if I’m just spamming my own blog, main reason? To start up a dialog, even if it’s with noone other then myself and make it easier to continue doing so. The more I write the easier it becomes to do so, and if I make it a habit to post to my blog every day, it’ll be much easier to keep it up. It does however take a small bit of effort to force something into becoming habit.

So, without much else to babble about, gonna leave you with todays bit of MP3 blogging. I originally found this tune somewhere on the net with talk of it being used in an iPod advertisement. It’s pretty catchy, so here it is to be shared.
