Do you love music? Do you dance with and sing with your favourite songs?
Then you MUST download the free and open source.. Songbirdmusic player! The latest version yet is Songbird 1.0 Download it here
Today I had nothing much to do on the internet when I thought of upgrading to the latest Songbird. Oh! The birdy is charming! Songbird music player basically seems like a substitute of the Apple iTunes and it can prove to be much more than iTunes.
Songbird is highly feature rich. It can handle the entire of your music collection in huge playlists, classified by many aspects such as Album, Genre, Artist, Rating etc etc. It includes dynamic playlists which sort out the recently played, recently added or most played songs. It also features a beautiful album art view as in iTunes and also gives the user the freedom to select from a hell lot of Songbird skins, wait.. not skins.. feathers, in case of the birdy!
The stunning feature of Songbird is the inbuilt browser capability! And that too our very own Mozilla Firefox, with all the browsers capability including addons and search sidebar. This is of great help to directly search for songs from within the player, download them, add album art, and look for some cool lyrics. Did I say.. lyrics? There goes.. another great reason why you will love Songbird. It can actually fetch the lyrics for your song as soon as it is played. Now you can sing along with it! If you are not used to it, you may not feel anything great about this feature. But once you experience it you just won't be able to live without it! And what if the player can't find the lyrics? Ah.. then you can add it by yourselves! All set! You may even edit various other information on the song!

So what you waiting for? Download it dudes!!
Troubleshooting Songbird: Some users informed that after the installation of Songbird, it doesn't actually fetch the lyrics even if the internet connection is on. The reason behind this is the functions like mediaflow,lyrics etc in the player are based on additional addons. For instance, the LyricMaster plugin enables the display of lyrics. You should enable the right-pane,left-pane etc from view menu for the correct display of lyrics and all. No worries, it's all very easy to figure out! :D Visit the Songbird addons site and download all the addons you need!
Here I am sharing the very beautiful song "Way back into love" from the movie Music & Lyrics.
A word about the movie: Music & Lyrics is a movie I really really enjoyed! I felt so good after watching it. In the movie Hugh Grant is an ex pop singer struggling to find some lyrics for this new offer from Cora Corman(making fun of Shakira and all :)). That is when Drew comes in (Yeah! The Charlie's Angel) to fix his plants and then the lyrics and then his broken life. The movie is all filled with romance, music and humour. Hey that's such a stunning combination you can get! Must watch.
Onto the music..
There are moments when I don't know if it's real Or if anybody feels the way I feel I need inspiration.. Not just another negotiation
There are practicals.. far off to the 27th (or something like that). But don't remind me.. let me flyyyy! I really have no words to explain this feeling. I bet it's a better feeling than getting out of jail after a 5 years *too much of overreaction ahem*
So the New Year starts here! Well it's obsolete to talk of new year on.. "What's the date there mommy..?" ..hmm ok.. 17th of January!
"Hey mama..wait.. tomorrow's my Birthday!"
..ok ok continue with the cooking. I am no disturbance to you!
Uhh! This is the problem with our moms. They get all tensed over our exam, but once it's over we're back to our naughty-boy status!
Whatsoever with the parents for now. It's time to start the year afresh.Well, it's TIME TO MAKE... THE.... resolutions!
My plans this year is well defined and seems to be (very strangely) practical. Of course this should involve a lot of hard work mainly to keep myself motivated. All because the plan is to Live My Dreams!
Here goes the so-called Live your dreams, Kal ho na ho, whatever plan :
The Musical Instrument Thingy: I love guitar ever since I saw the picture of it for the first time in my life. It's been so unlucky that I never got a chance to give a hand on it. Lots of excuses. But it can't be like that forever. Things are changing. Things are coming to my own hands.. my own style. I am off to guitar classes(not yet). Or it may be any other random musical instrument which I may build a sudden craze upon. But it's anyway gonna happen.
I love my blog: I plan a complete redesign of my blog template. I want to see this place more beautiful, more readable, and more postable. And there's yet more to the specialty - I plan to do it all by myself! Yeah! The codes, the design, and every bit of graphics! I also need to mention that forget this! This is probably gonna take more than what you think, or even what i think, just for the reason that I don't know HTML, I don't know if there's any other script like that, and I'm still the very same lazy dude! That's all about it.
Innovative computing: Ah! I really like to do this part. Innovative computing is nothing but an action plan originally formulated by me with the expected partnership of H and Jojo, where we go deeper into programming languages we know(Yups we are computer engineers!) and try to get into newer ones and newer areas. All about getting a better future..
GG: I don't know. I've been missing the black colour. I think I've not been paying any respect to it. I have only one black shirt. And this black PC of course. And nothing else soblack here. So I decided to go with the GG plan. It's nothing but collecting more black clothes, black gadgets, black books, and so on. And thus showing the black colour that I haven't forgotten what colour it really is.. and I still like black.... *nostalgia creeping in black and white*
Some more stuff which I don't remember: Read the heading again. And you still expect me to write something below here?! You are insane!!
Footnotes: I guess I've dealt with the subject very seriously so far. After all it's about Living My Dreams! Hope the life gets more colourful (with GG) and more meaningful this 2009.
Hi everyone! How you doing? Hope you are all fine and happy !!, unlike me :(.
I am taking a little break from this whole studying stuff. With today's exam I realized one more thing. So far I've thought Organic Chemistry is the only pathetically volatile subject. But it's not true since you start studying Electronics, together with Communication! As I've said before this subject and me aren't in good terms. But man, I've taken it seriously this time and even spent a whole night-out last day (my head still aching!).. and all I ended up was the worst exam so far! Things can get really bad sometimes.
Now the Beatles is playing.. and I am chilling. I don't know exactly when I got into English classics, but anyways they're quite a good feel :). And the current song is "A Hard Day's Night". Ah.. this makes sense!
It's been a hard day's night, and I've been working like a dog It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log
You really can't find better quotes than in a cool English pop!
Oh and there's got to be some scientific explanation about my last exam: Our brain is an excellent memory storage system than any supercomputer. It knows the right place to store the right things! All our crap thoughts and all those things we are not really interested in are stored in it's temporary memory, where it is cleared very soon. But fortunately or unfortunately this part of the brain's memory is limited (by default!) unlike it's permanent storage. Obviously this temporary memory is highly occupied during exams, for reasons cited above!
Now we have to take into consideration the fact that I had this Switching Theory exam last Monday which was postponed due to a harthal(everything-freeze-and-let's-watch-tv-at-home kind of strike thing!) by the BMS(for the reason that one of their workers were attacked and got seriously wounded. Not a big deal here though, it's more or less common now a days!).
So, I studied for this exam and the memory was so full(the temporary one!). Now the exam was postpone to Saturday, the 17th, and alas! this data has to be stored till then. So now theres a very minimum of memory available for our Electronics study and basically we can remember only much smaller portions.
Don't care though. People talk crap when they are screwed up with the worst things.
