Emusic is no itunes. Not even close.  Recently I downloaded 48 free songs.  35 of them came from emusic thanks to ticketmaster’s giveaway while the rest was from itunes.  I must add that emusic pretty much sucks.  I should have been a been to choose 35 songs in about 2 minutes.  Instead it turned into a 2 hour long hunt for some descent music.  No Madonna, Lady Gaga, Bat for Lashes, Weezer, REM, I started to get desperate after a while.  I did end up with good songs but it took far too long. 

Here’s what I got:

Ozzy Osbourne  Tribute album

Little Boots Stuck on Repeat and Meddle

Lady Hawke  Paris is Burning

Ladytron   Ghosts, Runaway, Blue Jeans (Temple of Jay Remix)

Adele   Chasing Pavements and Hometown Glory

Santigold   LES Artistes and Lights Out

Creature     Who’s hot, whos not and Pop Culture

Roisin Murphy   You know me better (Body Jack Remix)

Kim Carnes     Bette Davis Eyes

Coolio    Gangsta’s Paradise

Bush       Little Things

Savage Garden     To the Moon and Back

Nik Kershaw     Wouldn’t it be good

Human League    Love me Madly?  and Sin City

Ever use emusic?  What do you think?

Magic Date November 23rd

November 20, 2009 at 12:07 pm (music) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

What’s up with releasing all these albums on the same day? I know they’re trying to jump start the holiday season and this is a good time to release albums, but seriously all on the same day?

Shakira She Wolf    I liked the song She Wolf whether other people liked it or not I can’t say.

Lady Gaga   Fame Monster    Listen to the dark side of fame.  Some of the songs are scary so watch out, but they’re all addictive.

Beyonce     Iam…Yours  Live album   Beyonce’s first live album and she’s got pipes that are shown off live.

Adam Lambert  For Your Entertainment   Glam

Rihanna     Rated R        Was this written for Chris Brown? Some of it is kind of it is frightening and sounds really rough.

Susan Boyle   I Dreamed a Dream   She can sing for real.

Kenny G     Holiday Album     Yes he’s releasing an album

And it looks like Britney Spears was a little off with release of her singles collection.

Are you planning to buy one of the many albums released on November 23rd?  In person or on itunes? Or are you just into singles?  Personally I’m getting the fame monster.  I haven’t figured out if I’m getting the version with the fame attached or not.  I’m buying the actual physical CD  because I want the cover.

Contest Fever

January 9, 2008 at 8:58 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , )

For the past month I’ve had contest fever.  I’ve also gotten those around me to participate.  I’ve entered a lot of contests and won things here and there. The contest I entered most recently was for Vans in which I had to design a shoe.  It was due not too long ago, so I still don’t know how I did.  The first place winner gets a new mac computer, a 500 dollar shopping spree for Vans, and their design goes on a shoe.  The runners up get a shoe with the winner’s design.

Here’s the shoe design I entered:

The theme of the shoe is music.  I put music notes on the side, a person listening to music on the front, and head phones in the back (although you can’t really see them).  I’m afraid that the person may look too much like the people in the itunes commercial.  What do you think?
