Link.  They sound glitchy, in both the technical and idiomatic senses.  See if you can tell which one is illegal.


Beatles sped up and slowed down.

Go to this Beware of the Blog post to hear what happened when this guy sped up all of the Beatles UK releases to play in one hour and, more remarkably, what happened when someone slowed them back down.


Free (as in beer) Ostertag

Bob Ostertag has put as much of his own music as he is allowed to online for free.  Elsewhere, he explains why.

Unfunky UFO, found funky fragment.

March 10, 2007

Many years ago, I put on Mothership Connection for the first time in a while, and “Unfunky UFO” skipped thusly (direct mp3 link). The next time I played it, it didn’t skip, but after I put it away and dug it up again months or years later, it skipped again.

But what’s really wierd is that years later I was listening to my friend’s copy of Mothership Connection at his house, and it skipped exactly the same. Anyone else?
