Musical Websites

1 comment

All "Web designers" who decide that it's a really good idea to make music automatically start playing on websites when someone goes to them, deserve death, a slow and painful death. If I wanted music playing, I'd play it, thank you very much.

So I'm working in my boss's (sumo's) office today since I don't have my own office yet (some intense renovations are currently going on and I'll have one when they're done in my end of the building) and sumo is on vacation for 4 weeks. sumo likes to play music, so she's brought in her own speaker system w/ subwoofer. She usually plays her music roughly loud enough that she so that the office next to her can barely hear it. I think you can see where this is going...

So today, I'm minding my own business, ripping some audioslave tracks, but my ripper couldn't connect to freeDB for some reason so I had to manually name all the tracks. So I'm looking for some websites that list all the track names and this one Sony one looks promising, I click it but it's taking a long time to load so I go onto other things.

Well apparently it was taking so long to load because it had to load a bunch of fucking songs! About two minutes later this music starts blasting out of the speakers WAY louder than sumo had them set, so loud in fact that it was hurting my ears! The base is pounding away along with the attached speakers AND the speakers on the sun workstation I'm using. And at this point I've got no clue where the music is coming from, I'm just freaking out! Remember, I have already been working on other things for a couple minutes since I tried to load the site.

So I manage to turn off the speaker system but the sun machine is still blasting away. I don't know if you've ever tried to control the volume on a sun machine, but I sure haven't. After a few seconds I realized it was the fucking website and shut it down. But man did it freak me out. Not only that, but I now seriously dislike the audioslave track I am a highway. And of course everyone else in this end of the building probably thinks I'm an asshole or something. Ah well, I'll just blame it on the construction workers.
