Yeah, I was just about to say... #9.

Your host has hella fat pipes, though. I didn't notice any kind of painful download time. :jam:  :afro :jam:

I wish I could download pron that fast  :P

I was getting like 780kb/sec.

It's symbolic of our struggle against reality.

Thanks y'all! Yeah it's up on the Myspace now so I guess that gave it a little bump. I like this Mixeeba site so far; we'll see how it does when the traffic gets a little bigger. They're adding all sorts of crap to it as they go. It's still in the larval stages.

Oh and speaking of mixes, I have to bring The Hood Internet vs. Chicago to your attention. It's a funky mashup mix kind of thing I've really been digging. Check out this tracklist, I think that's just about everybody from the Chi except maybe Urge Overkill and the Ides of March:

1. Intro
2. Pro Nails Forever (Kid Sister vs Walter Meego)
3. Frog Minutes (Shawnna vs LMNOP)
4. Cakeicide (Hollywood Holt vs Prairie Cartel)
5. Juke And Pop (Mic Terror vs Green Velvet)
6. Superbowl Jesus (Kanye West + 1985 Bears vs Wilco)
7. Trenchache (Juice vs Liz Phair)
8. 80s Problems (Tha Basix vs Mahjongg)
9. When Baby Mamas Collide (Qualo vs Chin Up Chin Up)
10. Simple X-plosion (Diverse vs Andrew Bird)
11. Your Love Iz What It Iz (The Cool Kids vs Frankie Knuckles)
12. Sisters Of Chicago-Rillas (Rhymefest vs The Changes)
13. I Ain't That Bowie (Twista vs The Sea And Cake)
14. Hay Electric (Crucial Conflict vs Reds and Blue)
15. Watch My Big Feet Jump (Dude N Nem + Twista vs Office)
16. Ten-Day High (Do Or Die + Kanye West vs Tortoise)
17. Eatchyo Stigmata (Yea Big + Kid Static vs Ministry)
18. Smash That There (Yung Berg vs The Smashing Pumpkins)
19. Stages Of Standby (Psalm One vs Kleenex Girl Wonder)
20. Can You Eat Some More Heavy Fists Of Love? (Kanye West + GLC vs Bumps + Terminal 4 + Big Black)
21. I Used To Love The Blue Line (Common vs Bang! Bang!)
22. I Gotcha Trees (Lupe Fiasco vs May Or May Not)
23. What Chu Like, Old Mare? (Da Brat vs Sleep Out)
24. Kells-Tone For The Painfully In Love (R. Kelly vs Casiotone For The Painfully Alone)

 :lol:

Dude, you're so fucked up!  That's awesome, but no Cheap Trick?

I'm sure as hell glad to see Tortoise, and Sea & Cake on that list though.

Ok.  I'll be out for awhile.  Gone Listenin'

As a past resident of Chicago, I've always thought of Cheap Trick as more of a Rockford band  ;)

Anyway, these guys did a really good job with this.

What I'm not listening to is my MP3 player, which seems to have shat itself.  I'm down to "reload OS" and "reformat all" as my other options have done absolutely nothing.

And I left the power cord at work.  Brilliant!

ETA:  The good news is it only takes me that long to run to work and back.

You can get a 1-2 gig  (or memory card based) cheapie mp3 player for like twenty bucks or so these days. I got one on sale for $15 USD at Newegg awhile back.

My tears slowly making their way down my non-functional-MP3-player-owning face.   :cry:

Wait. You can hear them? Oh yeah, must be they're sizzling on account of all the hotness.

I'm listening to KTMS 990 "Talk AM" listing the neighborhoods to be evacuated for the 124th time.

On my hand-cranked radio. :D

Save them!  Tears of failed hardware owners are almost as delicious as the tears of children.
Shake your groove thing.

Wow I found a Youtube of Graham Parker doing Behind the Wall of Sleep with the Smithereens.

From some MTV Unplugged or something back in the 80s...

Dude has one of the coolest voices in rock. Bar none.

blue period, black comedy, such a joke I've played on me
I let you go and now I know a world of uncertainty

now I think about the days when I let you down in so many ways
that's the time I want to cry and the time I wonder why and pray

my apathy is tragedy - I'm content to stay inside
this emptiness is killing me, I can run but I can't hide

and you loved me all along when I always did you wrong
that's the time I can't forget and it fills me with regret - always

when you think that you have won then your heartache's just begun

blue period, black comedy
love's a clown - now laugh my way
I think of you much more than I'd ever be willing to say

now I don't want to pretend I was glad to see us ending this way
that's the time I want to cry and the time I wonder why and pray

blue period - I'm looking for someone who is just like you
to help end this blue period
