Music is a connection to the soul. For those of you who question whether or not existence resonates on a vibration, ask yourself why it is really that you think you like music? Think about it… certain rhythms and harmonies and melodies, all vibrations, and when they resonate with you in a way that makes you feel drawn to those vibrations. Can’t exactly explain why you like what you like, but it is obvious that it has to do with resonance and vibration and the synchronicity between the two as it applies to what YOU resonate and vibrate with. Many people find the mainstream ample enough for their tastes, with little to no inkling of going deeper. With so much music out there, how can one realistically say that the DO and/or DON’T like certain genres? There is good in every form of music. Trust me, ….
I have not bought a CD in ohhh…. about 13/14 years maybe. Why? Because all the music I need and want is here on the internet, at a push of a button for free. It used to be via sites like Napster and Limewire, then we all got into the wonderful world of bit torrents. And still to this day, there are numerous ways to get a song and/or songs you like for nothing in seconds. The easiest way, although you have to go song by song, is this: Make sure you have iTunes. If you do not, download it, it’s free. Then think of a song you like. Go to Youtube and find said song. Underneath the video, there is an option to share. Copy the URL in the share link…yes, the one that starts with http. Now go here... YouTube to mp3 Converter ….there are several you can use, but I find this one easiest. Now paste the URL from Youtube that you copied hopefully into the box on the converter page. You see underneath where you pasted, in big GREY letters it says CONVERT….click that. Once converted, which takes only a second. Then you will see that you have an option to click a “download” tab….CLICK THAT. Now if you have your iTunes open, it will go straight to iTunes. If not, it will open iTunes automatically, as it would with any other similar music download, and start auto-playing your newly downloaded song. Then all you have to do is click on the song an change the info according to how you organize your iTunes library. Or not, it’s up to you, I personally keep everything I have well-organized. Down to about 7000 songs, from over 20,000. May not be a lot to some, but to others, it’s quite a bit of tuneage.
I’m autistic in the way that I knw SO many song lyrics to my songs in my collection…it’s crazy. That’s the kind of affinity I have for music and it’s always good to think that no matter what, one can always turn on a song and smile, even if only on the inside. Like you all know, I DO NOT watch television. I have music going all day, all the time. I have no skills with any instruments, other than my badassness on Rock Band, but I have always pictured myself in that life. Maybe with my words and some serious voice lessons I can sing for you all one day. We should all be musicians and singers and players of instruments and artists and poets, all communing through the boundless energy of unconditional love. I know some musicians who tell me about how they go into a zone where they don’t think, it is ALL feeling, pure, riding a wave on the back of an electric current. Sounds like the greatest feeling ever, to me anyway. Ever wonder why your body gets tingly when certain music is played, why you get a rush of energy and emotion?… not everyone understands this, but I know many do. To some, music is just music, but those are the mumpsimuses, the bowels of the herd, content to be as ignorant as they possibly can. It is so much more, it is mathematical, it connects to everything, much the same as pi or phi or a Fibonacci sequence. Yes, look into all of these things if you have questions. The info is all out here, just come get it. If you don’t know, don’t ask, look it up for YOU, not for anyone else. If you hear a song you like, look and see who it is, get it for free the way I described above, and before you know it, the collection grows into an opus of your own music library. As with everything else out here available now at the touch of a keyboard key, take it all, whatever you can, while you can. It’s here, it has never been before, but here it is NOW. Take it, I beseech you my friends and readers and brothers and sisters….
So I gave, or should I say re-gave you the trick for getting free music via Youtube. I had posted this trick some months ago, but I thought since I am going to go on a rant of music-video making in the upcoming future with all songs I personally give 5 stars to, that you may need to be refreshed as to how to acquire said music for FREE. The 2 posts before are my latest 2 videos, please take a look, view on here, or via Youtube where you can rate. If you like, share please. If not, fuck off. I do what I do for ME, not for YOU, I just enjoy sharing, hoping to inspire all of YOU to find the artist within and explore your more creative side through outlets available to you all now. Make your own vids if you want, give some personality, some life, to a song you’ve always loved. Especially those of you with Macs. It’s so easy to learn and play and create. New Mac users I know, it seems like calculus at first, but have no fear, just dive in and learn, because once you do, you will see why Mac is so much better than the whacky world of PCs.
Back to the music. I have been up and down and down and out, and despite those roller coaster times, music is always there. It is a therapy for me, it soothes my soul, it says things I think and feel but can’t express in the way they do. I have such admiration for all poets and lyricists and song-writers, people don’t understand how difficult it is. Anyone can write shit, but to be able to put your soul and your body into your words and then give it to others with all the sincerity inside you, it’s no joke, nothing to be taken lightly. It is all love, it is true, it is pure, or it isn’t music and it isn’t real. As I go on with the vids, I’ll mix up a lot of my favorite bands. There is no specific, I like certain bands best for certain reasons, it’s complicated. I have quite a collection, but it can grow, and always does. I music-mine when I run Pandora in the background and/or sometimes just go on Youtube searches. I find what i like, and I take it, happier even if by but a bit. Take what you want from this post, or don’t take anything. That’s YOUR choice as always. I’m here for YOU, but YOU must be here for yourselves. More coming…. wide eyes open. Love to all.
