pieceocast friday . 012 1/2

sorry, no mix this week. i am having some trouble with the latest version of traktor, the dj software i use, because as it turns out it does not really work well on my good ole powerbook. it needs 1 Ghz | 512M RAM, while this here first generation G4 titan powerbook only has 500 Mhz | 256 M of RAM… so i can’t really produce a mix this week. i still have to fiddle around and see if i can get things to work. ugh.
or then re-install the old version of traktor?
or buy a new ‘puter?
itsah killer…

instead here are 2 very strange german songs, in a genre called “deutsche schlager”. be warned, swiss/chinese olympic gold medalist donghua li may be a great gymnast, but he can’t really sing, so be prepared to cover your ears.
first, he will “do it” to heidi, following the truely grandiose intro, and then you will hear his supremly off-key rendition of “schön ist [es] auf der welt zu sein”.

classify under: odd extreme.

donghua li: heidi [1.9M | 1:19 | 192 kbps]
donghua li: schön ist [es] auf der welt zu sein [1.3M | 0:54 | 192 kbps]

both tracks are from a cd entitled “olympiasieger donghua li präsentiert seine lieblingslieder”.

also quite odd: Rolf Is a Nazi: A SongFight Tribute to The Sound of Music, you guessed it, cover verions of songs from “the sound of music” soundtrack. try the sound of music and doremi [via otro miguel]

a word about copyleft:

all music and audio is borrowed with the utmost respect for its creators. however, i do consider this to be fair use. this material is created purely for fun, to share with my online friends. there is no commercial transaction involved. as a long-time dj i own 5’000+ albums in vinyl and quite a few cd’s. all the music i use for these mixes, i either own a copy of or it was released under a CC-license to begin with.
i release all my work under a creative commons license, hence i treat this material as if it was under CC license. i attribute it and i do not use it for commercial gain. don’t try to sue me, i am broke anyway.
