Home Fires harmony to REM shining faces

Filed under: art,music — Sagacious Himself @ 8:06 am

Listen to the Home Fires theme song by Samuel Sim:

Now listen again at 1:13


Listen to R.E.M. Shiny Happy people 2:35


I immediately thought of REM on hearing the show’s theme song.  With a bit of time I won’t invest the theme could be monkeyed down to the timing of the rem song for a fun harmonic overlay.

Since it was aired on a public channel feel free to download from usenet without moral- or legal detriment.

how to download all the mp3 music you want from project playlist beta


This script allows you to download ALL SONGS on by using a different method than all those other scripts that just use the visible url. Now provides links to download entire playlists!!!
Version: 2.2.1

free signup is *optional* but will allow you to build a favorites list

must use beta search

in results click new “Download song” link.

cost of free: filename is string of numbers

Say for whatever reason you wanted music from MTV toplist

so in a moment of insanity you desire Kanye West “Heartless”

search heartless: 090129-project-playlist-beta-search-to-download-mp3


because you’re still insane you click the first download link instead


if you’ve opted not to install the userscript as directed, or if you’re greasemonkey is disable then no download link for you




if you’re OCD or an iTard: kill yourself. The file contains ID3 tags. You can use foobar to rename the file to your liking


right click file(s)


click the dot dot dot


pick the appropriate naming scheme


click run

click close

repeat as desired

NEVER pay for mp3s.  Pay only for FLAC, audio CD, or audio DVD.  Money must fetch fidelity.  mp3s are only acceptable when free.

* large groups of mp3s are best batch renamed via ID3 with den4b’s ReNamer

There are two public engines using Fenry’s code

Search for a video

search videobot for music video to pilfer

click on the little TV or the music video title to spawn a new popup with handy buttons to capture MMS URL. Notice the bandwidth options

copy yahoo music video MMS URL to clipboard

click the purple Y to go native (optional)

click the purple yahoo y

click video quality to turn up bandwidth (optional)

HD DVD video

control shift B to block

PaylowMusic is covered with ads…. AdBlock Plus with Easy list picks off most of them. Element Hiding Helper and Remove It Permanently gets the rest of them. NoScript makes capturing the MMS URL much easier

search for something

click a result and in the popup right click on the NoScript placeholder and copy link to clipboard

copy mms url
