Hello everyone!! We actually have 16 people watching the group and/or members of the group, and that's pretty cool. Let's get some comments going on these downloads!! :D

This week we have 1 Discovery Download and yet another TV pilot episode!


Discovery Download

TV Shows

The Real Housewives of Orange County - Pilot

Reviews

Trains to Brazil - Guillemots
-I like their sound! Enjoyable song. Good stuff.

The Real Housewives of Orange County
-Uh, I'm not sure what to expect. At this point I haven't had a chance to watch it yet, but if you want to try it out better grab it while you can. I'll watch it soon and let you know how that went. Haha.

I'm sorry I didn't post last week... there was one song.... and I couldn't find anything else, so it was hard to get motivated to post.

Last week's one download was Dynomite (Going Postal) by Rhymefest. It was an OK song.

This week's downloads (I found more things after I first posted this!!!):

Discovery Downloads

Music

Munich - Editors
I Can't Love You Anymore - Gary Nichols

Videos

Top Chef - Episode 1 (includes episode and the trailer)

Reviews

Munich - Editors
-I liked this song! I judge a song by how much I feel like I want to check out more by the same artist. And I think I'll look up this band and see what else they have.

I Can't Love You Anymore - Gary Nichols
-Good song. Kinda sappy, but good. :)

Top Chef
-I hope more shows opt to use this great advertising medium!!! So many people will see this episode before it even airs.... and quite a few who I would guess would never watch it otherwise. Heck, I don't think I'd watch it otherwise!! Looks interesting, to say the least.

Until next week... enjoy your free music and videos!!

Sorry its so late again this week! We have some interesting things this week. I also am going to start linking to the songs, when you click on one, it will ask you if you have iTunes, if you do, click Yes, and then it will ask you if you want to open an external program and say Yes.

Another side note, the pilot episode of Conviction (and the other videos) is still available here. This show definitely has potential, and it's a smart move to offer it for download!!

Discovery Downloads

Music

In Da Club - Assassin
Travelin' Thru - Dolly Parton
Cosmopolitan - Nine Black Alps

Audiobooks

SparkNotes Guide for Heart of Darkness

Reviews

In Da Club - Assassin
-Well, I usually don't like music like this, but its an OK song. Its categorized on iTunes as Reggae, so I guess its that mixed with Hip Hop or whatever, so if you're into that sort of music, check it out. :D

Travelin' Thru - Dolly Parton
-Pretty good song! Again, not the type I listen to, but its good.

Cosmopolitan - Nine Black Alps
-I didn't need to download this song, because just a couple days ago, I bought this album!! I like this band, and this is a good song by them.

SparkNotes Guide for Heart of Darkness
-It's cool that they have SparkNotes on there, but I'm not sure if this is the best one to offer for free! What a disturbing book. I haven't listened to the SparkNotes yet, and I don't know if I will because the book depresses me, but maybe its a good resource... :)

That's it for this week! I'm going to try to do some advertising for the group, and please, tell your friends about it!

There is a sampler CD that is being offered on iTunes from Fueled by Ramen (record label) for .99 a song ( here if you have iTunes installed), and on purevolume you can get a very similar album for free. Check it out here. I love so many of these bands!!

Thought I'd give my impressions of the songs.

Love Me Like You
-I really like this song!! As soon as I heard it I looked up The Magic Numbers on www.allofmp3.com, and they've got 'em, so I'm downloading that album right now! :D

Mr. Sunshine
-I don't usually like country, but this song wasn't too bad at all.

Someday
-Cool video! I like the song, and its cool to see some footage from the Olympics.

Black Horse and the Cherry Tree
-Love love love KT!!! She's too cute.

Other things to check out

Jack Johnson Exclusive Video Album
-If you like Jack Johnson, check out this entire concert (for $9.99.... good deal!). Its neat to see him live. (Look for it on the Music Videos page, or search for Jack Johnson and click on videos)

This is a new community called free_on_itunes. Every week the iTunes Music Store gets updated with lots of new songs and videos... some of which are free! There's always one or two Discovery Downloads (found at the bottom lefthand corner on the main Music Store page) each week. But then there's other free things scattered throughout the Music Store that aren't always that easy to find. That's where this group comes in... if you find something for free on iTunes (that's not already listed on this group) post it! It will be appreciated!

Posts regarding where songs are on iTunes will be public, but posts containing the occasional download or information of questionable legality (wooo check out my big words!) will be friends locked. So join the community! Have some fun and get new songs! :D Thanks!
