Having just been introduced to the dubious legality of muxtape.com, I decided to see if I could make it a bit more useful. I've been meaning to play around with greasemonkey again since it'd been a couple years since I had, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity.
I found a script at userscripts.org that generates 'download' links for each of the songs on any muxtape page, then added to it the ability to generate an m3u (playlist file) which you can click to stream all the songs in your audio player of choice. No more having to leave a browser page open just to listen to muxtapes. No more having Flash take down your browser. Awesome.
If you'd like to add this functionality to your muxtape experience, simply install Greasemonkey (or whatever IE/Opera plugin does the same thing) and head over and install muxtape downloader / m3u enabler from UserScripts.org.
If you've not seen muxtape before, head on over and listen to my first attempt at online mixtapery: nyquildotorg.muxtape.com
(Is there any interest in enabling 'podcast' functionality to your muxtapes, allowing people to subscribe to them in iTunes/whatever and have them auto-download?)
Here's my little tribute to pop radio, composed from the "best bits" of Ashlee Simpson and Gwen Stefani's recent releases. I hope it makes your ears bleed as much as it does mine. (And I mean that in a good way; I don't actually wish harm to fall upon your ears.)
When I'm really tired, everything becomes really funny. And I don't just mean that to me everything is funny, I mean it actually becomes funny.
For example, after a few minutes of talking like a robot, putting robots in famous movie situations and pop songs, and saying non-robotty things in a robotty manner, I spontaneously invented the most brilliant joke ever.
What do androids take to relieve cold symptoms? Robotussin.
See what I mean?
As a bonus, here's a hilarious concept that needs a bit of work still: Imagine the pickup lines robots might use at a singles bar.
