Mark Sabbatini of All About Jazz has offered up some links to sites where you can download – freely for the most part – some holiday music so rancid even its creators have disavowed most copyright or connection to it. Which makes the songs into instant cult classics. Natch.

Bongobells offers about 50 mostly out-of-circulation albums …

Many of the albums are discontinued, colossal commercial failures and other projects doomed to obscurity before digital capturing allowed them to be elevated to cult-like status. Generally the album’s title and lead performer(s) are about all the information available without exhaustive research, but the sites provide enough description for listeners to know what they’re getting before committing bandwidth to them. All of the songs are in unprotected MP3 format, but many are also likely in a legal “grey” area at best. But since eBay seems to be about the only way to get the actual CDs, you probably aren’t starving anybody out of their Christmas dinner money.

Unfortunately, the Bongobells have nag screens between downloads and other unpretty wait times, but if you browse and find a lot that you want, you can get a one-month membership for the price of a J-Lo CD and download them .zip quick.



And now …

Did You Get Your Ebates?

November 28, 2006

Umm hmmm. Are you looking for discounts, coupons – or better yet – cash back on purchases? Thanks for the wonder of Online Commerce, Ebates can get you up to 25% cash back at more than 800 popular stores. I can’t even name 800 popular stores, so I’m pretty sure I’m covered.

How about you? If you sign up as an Ebate member you can save an average of 5 percent on every purchase at participating online stores, and up to 25 percent at some stores.

So if you ever shop Barnes & Noble, Office Depot, Circuit City or Target, look for your hot deals at Ebates.

Your Turn to Tip Me Off

November 28, 2006

Ok, I’ve been putting up free download links for a while (rather erratically, I know, that’s my life story) and now I think it’s time the favor is returned.

Take a minute and drop me some of your hot download links. You know about the dnb mania that slobbers all over this site, but what the hell, share what you love. Doesn’t have to be Jungle … but I think a good beat should be the criteria. We love getting jangly and trippy sketchy, so knock us out with your picks.

Why? Because you rock.

Music Is Doomed. Or Is It?

November 27, 2006

Here’s a thought-provoking article from Szplug of the Digital Journal that contemplates “The Future of Music.” You’ve probably read most of these points before, but they’re not often written as well.

Szplug apparently stayed awake through the documentary “Money For Nothing: Behind the Big Business of Music” and make the info available for you. Read and comment. I think you probably know my view by now (the faster the Musick Industry goes down, the sooner we’ll get decent music in the stores and on the radio.)

DIE DIE Big 5!

You’re An Animal

November 27, 2006

… or you know someone who is. Therefore, you should be aware of the Cahuenga Pet Hospital, a state of the art, full service small animal veterinary care facility in Los Angeles.

Sick critters can get the help they need with up-to-minute, highest standard medical, surgical and dental care. The staff knows and loves animals and you can tell by they way you and your pet are treated – and they’re more than willing to answer your questions and provide you with tips on keeping it healthy.

You don’t have to take my word for it, because this Los Angeles animal hospital is a member of AVMA (American Veterinary Hospital Association), CVMA (California Veterinary Medical Association) and AAHA (American Animal Hospital Association).

Alt rockers, THE PIGS, are offering their tongue-in-cheek track, “I’ve Got Santa Claus,” as a holiday download beginning December 1.

The track, which tells the tale of Santa hiding out until there’s Peace on Earth, is available as a free download, or, for .99 cents as a donation toward world peace, with all net proceeds going to UnitedForPeace.org. As a further incentive to buy the download, all those making a donation by December 25 will have a chance at winning one of two Apple iPods. Winners will be announced on January 1, 2007.

Cough up that .99 and if you can’t afford that … spread some peace, love and understanding. Now, dammit!

BeSonic serves up a whole platter of sick Scientek Basement drum and bass downloads. Feel free to browse the selection – hitting “Chainsaw,” “Karma” (lounge dnb), “Donnerwetter,” “Hagakure” and more more more.

Fan d.d.ranged had this to say about the band: “You have just blown away anything I have ever played or heard in one massive ass-kicking blow to the mind!!!” Hype or hip? There’s only one way to find out.

Scientek Basement makes their home on MySpace. Stop by sometime.

Now don’t you tell me I don’t share. And don’t you tell me you don’t share.
