View Full Version : The Best of Tyrant Radio

Okay, so for the last few months, we IRCers have been enjoying this phenomenon known as Tyrant Radio (http://btmorris.lifeafterking.org:8080/). Graciously hosted by krelbel, the collaborate jukebox allows several people to upload songs to a queue, and then stream them, as well as providing album art and a small chatbox.

There are a few things that we have kinda established for ourselves that you may wish to consider before jumping in

a) don't delete other people's music. This is called "Pulling a Shawn" (you asshole!)
b) don't upload REALLY LONG (like 8 minutes or more) files unless everyone else is cool with it
c) it's okay to upload shitty stuff, but don't go overboard with it, or make sure that everyone is in a mood to listen to awful things xD (otherwise BEAT would never be allowed to upload anything ;))
c.1) if you think someone has uploaded something shitty but apparently they seem to like it, try not to give them shit over it! Just mute the current song and go on
d) The software assigns a random funny nickname to everyone, but we usually replace one of the words with our TT nickname so that we can tell who everyone is.
* The Debauchery Garden is now known as The Debauchery Lady
e) the site kinda bogs down if much more than an hour's worth of music is uploaded, besides, newcomers don't want to have to wait for 2 hours to listen to their song!
f) usually the most people are in there in the evenings, from about 6-8PM CDT to 1-2AM. If no-one's in there, you might try getting on IRC and suggesting that people join.


That being said, the real reason for this thread is so I can paste this textfile I've been building of some of the songs I've really liked. TR doesn't save a record of the songs that are played, so you have to do it yourself, but I can't be hassled to save every single song, so I just did the ones I liked xD

I will get in on this, as I've been thinking lately how I need to expose myself to more music. And if I can also force other people to listen to They Might Be Giants forever and ever*, well, bonus!

*I understand it's one song at a time

I haven't been able to connect to TR for a while. Did it die while I wasn't looking or is this a problem on my end?

I miss you guys(' music)

I just uploaded something and it worked, so...I dunno? The queve was empty when I tried it though.

I mean I click on the link/enter the url and the page just won't load. I've tried on several browsers and several networks. But now I know it's just me, then.

Lady has liked everything I put up, so I guess I just have fantastic taste and win TR forever!

Also, the only reason I deleted those songs was because I thought SOMEONE was deleting mine first.

a lot of my stuff doesn't load onto TR, including stuff I bought through iTunes. :itisamystery:

Does anyone still use this? I hopped on a few times in the past week and was met with silence. I'd love to get some more exposure to other music.

Whoa, this sounds/sounded fun! I'll give it a spin after I put the squirt to bed.

I use it all the time with my friends. I'll try to be on later if I am online.

EDIT: Also, Lady, it's Joanna Newsom. :P

Usually the best way to get some TR started is to hop onto #Talkingtime and say HEY GUYS LET'S TR.

Quick, someone upload Secret Of Mana +.

Also, despite the tendency for certain uploaders to stick to their genre (like me, I only have rock), TR isn't genre-specific. Upload everything!

Hey insomniacs, TR is happening right now.

Damn that was some TR happening!

TK I hope the song I submitted as goofy spacerap was goofy spacerap enough. My knowledge of JMT is nowhere near as complete and encyclopedic as my knowledge of Rancid or BTMI! so I was working from vague memories.

Damn that was some TR happening!

That was pretty epic. As all of my selections came on after I'd already gone to bed, I'd be curious to know what people thought.

Truly the best of Tyrant Radio is whatever Behemoth uploads.

The best Tyrant Radio is when somebody uploads a Geinoh Yamashirogumi song.

The best tyrant radio is when everybody's having a great time and then I ruin it with the pimping 10 commandments.

Thanks to Tyrant Radio I have discovered KOMPRESSOR. (http://archive.org/details/iuma-kompressormusic) I feel like this has filled a void in my life I didn't know was there.
