Feel My Pain!

Noooo!!!
So, I've been having computer problems ever since The Man (Dish Network Hooker Upper) screwed with my phone line. Well, I started going through my computers programs and crap trying to delete all the unnecessary stuff I didn't need any longer. One of the programs was QuickTime and I never use it so I deleted it. Later I found out that it was QuickTime AND itunes!! I lost 1500 of my most favorite songs. I lost stuff I don't have hard copies for like 7 White Stipe concerts over a 3 dozen live songs and concerts by Nirvana, just everything. Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhh

But at least I figured out the problem to my computer and that makes me feel better....














Not

QueenB said...

OUCH! As an ipod owner I feel for you..

Damfino said...

Sucks to be you... and even more so now that you have erased itunes!

Damfino said...

I have two WS concerts on my itunes... is that the same as yours?

BTW - tried to call this morning. Are you gonna be able to float the $40 for Jason and I - forgot to drop by this morning.

No Bob - called 4 times.

krysta jo said...

I am soooo sorry - I feel your pain.

Damfino said...

Your pic kills me KJ.

krysta jo said...

I know...it is so precious. Just like me.

Damfino said...

And you have that one eye that is all wonky and huge... weird.

krysta jo said...

That's because I was in a HUGE massive bar fight. Someone didn't realize the power of my princess-ness. Don't worry - they won't get it wrong again.

Kern said...

Urnotme: Man, I'm sorry to hear that. I am curious however, as to how you had your music folders set up. On my iTunes, I have all the actual MP3's set in a separate folder which I import into itunes, which means that even if I delete it off the list, it's still on the hard drive. Were the mp3's in question stored in a folder that was removed along with itunes?

Kern said...

KJ-Way to show those bastards who's the boss. Tony Macelli would be proud.

Jed: Saw 40 year old virgin last night. Thought it was fantastic. Like looking in a crystal ball for the most part...though if I had to wait thirteen years to get Catherine Keener, I think I could handle that.

Damfino said...

You are correct - Josh will not challenge your princessness anymore.

Could you give him back his glasses though? He has been crying all week.

Damfino said...

No no - you re in good shape Kern. You have not covered your place with toys.

Think Jerry...

Kern said...

Well, I don't have the toys, but a whole corner of my apartment is stacked as tall as me with comics.

I quite imagine that's not too sexy, to be sure. It was my hope that the four foot Richard Roundtree on my Shaft's Big Score Poster would offset that lack, but I don't think even the man who won't cop out even when there's danger all about can remedy that.

Deit Heimley said...

Stop crying pumpkin. It'll be OK. Nothing is ever gone gone on a computer. There are even special services that can recover erased hard drives.

An MP3 would not have been deleted, it would have gone to the recyle bin. That is unless you emptied the recyle bin. Have you checked there? Also, follow Kern's advice and look on your music download folder or do a search for *.mp3 that will tell you if everything is gone for now.

It will be OK. We will get those songs back! It'll be OK.

Kern said...

Jed: By the way, the reason I kind of remembered who Sia was is that she sometimes sings with this British downtempo electronic group called Zero 7. They aren't bad, but for my taste they're probably a little too smoothed out and watered down. They are mostly loved by middle aged hipster wannabes that hang out in coffee shops and talk loudly about things like classes about the history of the musical in film or some such shite.

Kern said...

Deit is right on. I forgot to mention the part about searching by the extension. It's my guess that there may be an actual folder called Ripped Music, or itunes ripped music or something like that. Usually you have to tell itunes to point to a folder to pick the stuff up, which leads me to believe that they're still there.

krysta jo said...

I suppose Josh can have his glasses back if he has actually been crying - tears and all. I am not super mean but he needs to stop forgetting that I am royalty.

You are a god amoung us mortals for your words they inspire us to reach ... to achieve ... no to yearn after your mind!!

She's a benevolent princess on top of everything else.

Kern said...

Anonymous is my secret crush.

Oops.

SHUA said...

The good post, thanks guy is back!!!

So true, so true.

Damfino said...

WHAT THE CHRIST IS GOING ON!?!?

I concur with Deit's sarcastic diatribe.

Fuck John Hopkins and the damn children.

Kern said...

Good post, thanks.

Kern said...

Speaking of children...

That remark of Jed's reminded me of a line in Danny Boyle's Shallow Grave. Ewan McGregor and his two roommates are at a hospital function, and the guy speaking says how the donations will help a lot of children. His character Alex gets annoyed and says:

"Children? You never said anything about children! I'd pay to have the little fuckers put down. I want my money back!"

Pure gold.

Damfino said...

Shallow Grave - the most fun you can have with a shoe and a knife!

Damfino said...

When was the last time you heard these exact words: "You are the sunshine of my life"?

Kern said...

And how would you react then, if I told you I was the anti-Christ?

Damfino said...

Oh Ewan - how far we have fallen.

Though, rubbing against Scarlett J. would be worth enduring Michael Bay.

Kern said...

I would endure Uwe Boll for a chance to rub up against Scarlett.

Then I would attempt to make it onto "Boner Jams '05"

Damfino said...

Kern - you and your box of porn! You go f*ck a goat!

Kern said...

Why you always telling me to go fuck a goat?

Damfino said...

We went to Mexico... to see this show. A chick f*cking a horse... and it was really kind of gross - cuz ya know... he was reallllly f*cking her!

Kern said...

I felt sorry for her. And you know, I kind of felt sorry for the horse, too. I mean, it was really giving it to her...

Kern said...

Wait, is that the Six Million Dollar man's boss?

Kern said...

As an aside, I am curious to what's going on with Urnotme's computer.

Damfino said...

It is all of that porn he downloads... really slows it down!

Kern said...

It's got "Boner Jams" dating back to 1987.

Damfino said...

Kern - it was not me. I thought it was you. Must have been Stevens.

I hate this spam crap.

It is really cheapening the experience of life... ya know?

Like... fer shure!

Kern said...

I know I feel cheap. Wait, the spam had nothing to do with that. Nothing at all.

I was joking about how I should have Neighborhoodies make me a 27 Year Old Virgin shirt for my birthday.

Why suffer in humiliation privately?

I'm out folks. Later.
