I have to rave

A month ago I was looking for a classical mp3 that iTunes did not carry. I was poking all over the internet when I stumbled across eclassical.com. I’m so glad I found them. As you probably gathered from the name they are a great source for classical mp3s. They seem like they’re kinda new so they don’t have everything, but they’ve got all the famous composers. Their website is laid out fairly well. You can search by title, composer, performer, conductor, instrument…etc..etc. Their mp3’s are completely free of any restrictions (which is how it should be) so you can download them and immediately burn them on a cd or put them on your Ipod and be done! The truly wonderful thing about eclassical is the price. *most* mp3’s are under the iTunes benchmark of $.99 per song. Often single mp3’s start at $.49! Even if you have to pay $.99 you get alot of bang for your almost buck. I bought Mozart’s Requiem in Dm for $.99 and it was waaay worth it, that’s 46 minutes of music! BTW, if you haven’t heard Mozart’s requiem, it is absolutely beautiful, you’d be doing yourself a favor if you downloaded it. Nearly every week they have a compilation available for download. These are more than a buck, but they’re full of goodness as well. They usually pick a theme or subject that makes up the compilation. For instance a few weeks ago for Mozart’s b-day they had a compilation of his music, 161 minutes for only $5.99! It’s crazy over there at eclassical, that’s over 2 and a half hours of music for six bucks.

Do not hesitate to visit them. Every other day I find myself perusing their collection, looking for new and exciting things. There’s so much I want to buy, but I’ve been good at keeping it under wraps. Tonight I bought 3 tunes for $2.00, and I was able to use paypal which makes the process even more enjoyable! Ok, enough raving, if you like classical music go over there and check it out.

I’ll leave you with the Introitus Requiem Aeternam, the intro to Mozart’s Requiem in Dm. If you were not aware, it is a choral piece that is dark and ominous but so soothing and beautiful at the same time……I’d love to hear it sung in a huge cathedral with the voices echoing off the walls all around me.

    Oh, dude, it was cool.
    I got up this morning and coded for a bit, and then I heard the boy crying, so I checked on him, but it was a false alarm.
    Then I went back to the computer until the wife got up.
    Then I ate breakfast..
    Then I just sat around for a while, and then I got really tired, so I took a nap.
    Then I went to Safeway…
    Oh, shoot, I am forgetting to throw LOL’s in here..
    Ok, so I went to Safeway LOL
    and bought a few items cuz we really needed them..
    Then I drove home LOL
    Then we watched Just Like Heaven with Reece Witherspoon.
    That was really neet… LOL
    Then my wife went over to her sisters and I sit here typing this comment..
    Then I will get ready for bed, and finally I will actually go to bed..
    K, I will give you a run down of tomorrow and the rest of my life from hour to hour later on…
