View Full Version : Jazz Comp for DL : Sleep is for the Weak

10-25-2006, 10:44 AM
Thought I’d try another server for downloading comps (www.megaupload.com). Let me know how it works. This one has a file size limit of 250 and should be A LOT faster for downloads. The web page is a little busy, look toward the upper right. A few short hoops to jump through…Visit the link, enter a 3 character code, wait 45 seconds, close a popup, download. I think the speed will more than make up for it. It took me ~15 minutes to download 250MB. (WARNING: I got a pop-under after downloading that was not kid safe in nature. I don’t know if this is par for the course. If it’s a problem I’ll re-upload to a safer server.)

This is an odd comp. I’m calling it Sleep is for the Weak. It’s a jazz comp for burning the midnight oil. Rock/Funk/Experimental driven. Not much traditional here. The first track is one to either get your blood pumping or set you on edge. Track 02 more of the same. Settles down some after that.

Basically a jazz comp for the adventuresome spirit. Jazz purists might argue that a lot of it is not jazz. I can only say all but track 10 were purchased in the jazz section... I’d be interested to hear what you think.

In order to respect personal objections to rampant file sharing, you need to PM me for the download link. I hope this doesn’t detract anyone.

PM in a sec. :)

I haven't tried it yet but . . . www.mediafire.com

free and no upload file size limitation :cool:

I'll give it a shot next time I do one of these.

www.mediafire.com sounds excellent.

I'm re-upping the files on this server right now. I'm at home on cable broad band now. It's uploading at 350kbps, not bad. Should be done in about 2 hours... Uploads are usually slower than downloads on cable.

The interface is nice and clean. Its free. AND simultaneous downloads are allowed which is unusual.

Check back tomorrow for links.

For the 17 people who viewed and haven't PM'd me...It's FREE MUSIC!

All in perfect flac quality.

FWIW, both files downloaded in about 15 minutes here. Much, much faster than SendSpace. Better run Ad-Aware soon, however. Even so I'm gonna give MediaFire a try since these comps can all be stuck in one folder there.

Thanks! Will give a listen later today when I get home from work.

edit: Okay, so Ad-Aware and AVG didn't find anything but but I looked in Windows Install Clean Up and found something I had never seen before and promptly deleted it. No problems so far.

That's good info about Ad-Aware. I run a Mac and don't ever have to worry about that stuff. Didn't even cross my mind.

I have down load links ready for Mediafire, any PM's will get both options.

edit: I just fired up a download from mediafire. I'm at work with full on ethernet. I'm getting 1MB/sec. That makes for a 6 minute download for the whole thing....

Only had a chance for one spin so far but I can safely say I like this a lot more than traditional jazz (keeping in mind my limited exposure and all). Then again I'm not much into traditional anything. :)

Thanks again!

In case anyone is wondering...73 views has resulted in three...3... PM's for the download links. I wasn't expecting much, but three is a little dissapointing. Maybe I'm a cheap date, but I'd download something I wasn't sure I'd like just to see what was there. Don't be shy about PMing.

In case PMing is mysterious...you click on the member's user name over to the left here and that will take you to their profile. In the frame on the right labeled 'Contact info' is a link to "Send a private message to USERNAME"

Caution, you're treading near pity-click territory :D

For the life of me I could never understand why people would turn down free music during the old CD-R/snail mail comp trading days. Now it's only a few clicks away. Baffling, yet people still pay for lossy downloads. :confused:

10-28-2006, 03:50 PM
Actually, I was hoping to bait and/or goad some of the pity-clickers... :wink5:

...was my evil plot too transparent? :aureola:

I was always too chicken to request a CD comp.-- it just seemed too personal and I didn't really feel like I had that much of a relation going, or anything to give in return. This way you can be as anonymous as you like, the barrier to action is really, really low, and no one is really inconvenienced for time or postage.

Maybe everyone associates a little too much with your protagonist (the prepositional object in your subject heading)?

Three hours of parsing a sentence later...*chuckle*

edit: 4 PM's per 100 views and counting!
