We'll have something like that but with a few differences. We'll have more info, framegrabs, maybe inside stuff, and more quality sound. Also we'll probably have English, French, and Spanish versions plus different media player versions.

Oh wow that sounds good! I'm always up for a good ol' listen to the foreign versions... don't forget though that for most of the songs, especially in italian spanish and german, they didn't bother translating them...
It looks like it'll be jam-packed full of lots of other interesting stuff though!

Isn't that a bit ambitious? Do you even have a webhost? That'll be quite a lot of webspace with formats lots of free hosts won't let you use (mp3 being a big one).

...we will?  confused

i was just going to have each song in high quality mp3 format, with a lot of info, including lyrics, framegrabs to go with each, but just the english version. honestly how many people will want the songs in different  languages? and how do you get different media player versions of an mp3? just about every player can play mp3s.

i would also let people request songs that had been left out, or in other languages if need be.

i dont want to come off sounding like an asshole, but remember, i only wanted help with the graphic design.

If you would like, I would be honored to have my versions of 'Future Guy' on the site. I wrote it for the FryScape videogame, but I'd be happy to give it to you for the Music site as well.

I think basically having the songs, a good site design, lyrics, and maybe some pictures would be more than enough... It seems like you're shooting for a themed website (audio files) and that's what you need to keep track on... rather than going off and doing other stuff and making a general website.

Btw, is pronounced "mu" and it's used in scientific stuff... it's also used to represent the metric system's micro.... like in micro liters  wink

Where is your site hosted at now aslate?  It is still up right?  I could swear I visited a couple of days ago.

I bought my own hosting, so  http://www.thefryhole.co.uk  is the new URL and goes to my hosting. The site isn't dead either, just slow at being updated!

That's what I was thinking. As soon as I can decide on a name and a host, I'm just going to have the songs, information about them, lyrics, with a framegrab for each song.

Here's what I was thinking for the layout of the site:

The main page would have links to a section for songs from each season, and maybe a section for songs from not-one-specific-season (and user submissions like NP's), and a section for site information. Each season page would have a table with a list of songs, the episode, and a direct link to the mp3 file. When you click on a song, you get a page similar to this:

Song Title

[Framegrab from during the song]

Download filename.mp3
Fliesize: #.## MB
Song Length: ##:## m:s
Episode: Ep. Name, #ACV##
Singers: List of characters who sing in the song, possibly color coded with lyrics (see below)
Lyrics:
Lyrics to song, font color coded by character and who is singing certain parts of the songs (see above)
Download filename.mp3


For example of the color coding thing, for the 2nd Xmas song, the toy factory one, under singers, it might list Fry in orange font, Bender in gray, Leela in purple, Elves in green, and Robot Santa in Red.
Then the lyrics would read:
We are free and fairly sober with so many toys to build.
The machines are kind of tricky, probably someone will be killed.
But we gladly work for nothing,[/green]

[orange]Which is good because we don't intend to pay![/orange]
[black (meaing everyone is singing)]The elves are back to work today![/black]
Hooray! We have just a couple hours to make several billion gifts. And the labor isn't easy,[/green]
[purple]When you all work triple shifts! You can make the job go quicker if you turn up the controls to super speed![/purple]
It's back to work on X-mas eve, Hooray![/black]
[purple]And though you're cold and sore and ugly your pride will mask the pain[/purple]
[orange]Let my happy smile warm your hearts[/orange]
There's a toy lodged in my brain!
We are getting awfully tired and we can't work any faster and we're very very sorry[/green]
[gray]Why you selfish little bastards! Do you want the kids to think that Santa's just a crummy empty handed jerk? Then shut your yaps and back to work![/gray]
Now it's very nearly X-mas and we've done the best we could[/green]
[orange]These toy soldiers are poorly painted[/orange]
[purple]And they're made from inferior wood[/purple]
[gray]I should give you all a beating but I really have to fly[/gray]
If I weren't stuck here frozen I'd harpoon you in the eye![/red]
Now it's back into our tenements to drown ourselves in rye[/green]
[purple]You did the best you could, I guess, and some of these gorillas are ok[/purple]
Hooray! We're adequate![/green]
The elves have rescued X-mas day, hooray![/black][/i]

Of course, it wouldn't be tags like that, but I would change the font color in HTML.

banwidth would have to be pretty big since people will be downloading mp3s.

filesizes, probably a few megs per song.

« Reply #66 on: 01-01-2005 09:26 »

Well, you need to estimate volumes. How many people do you expect? How many MP3s do you expect them to download, multiply them together, times by 30 and get your expected bandwidth. I mean, would 4GB/month be enough, or do you need 8GB? Do you think all your MP3s will take up 500MB of webspace? Will your host check that your content is basically illegal?

Get together figures for bandwidth, webspace and your buget. Then start looking for hosting.

Classy, and gets the job done. On a side note, I don't like MHOP, since it sounds much like iHop, a U.S. restaurant chain.

bump. in case anyone hadn't noticed, i've basically abandoned all hope of going through with this. I just don't have the income to pay for a webhost. I could hide it on my school's web site storage space, and just get a .tk linking to it, but that wouldn't be entirely ethical.

if someone else wants to take over this, go ahead.

Hey... Don't abandon this idea... It's very good... You might check those two free hosting services... I don't know how well the behave, but you might just take a look at them:

 http://www.100webspace.com/
 http://www.dhost.info/

I don't know what is the catch about the last one, but they say they give you 300Gb transfer rate for free...

A good pay site for web hosting is  www.34sp.com  their prices are reasonable and their servers reliable. I know a number of webmasters who have their sites hosted with them and I used to have one there myself.

If I wanted the songs from the episode soundtracks I'd simply rip the DVD, although the original song would be a nice idea but you're going to have copyright problems if you host them and possibly with the episode rips too.

gotfuturama.com or TLZ have clips which are typically a few seconds long which the legal eagles at FOX are likely to let pass, but full length songs they'll probably take a dim view of.

Personally if I just wanted to share some MP3's  Usenet is a fast and free alternative and has unlimited, though temporary, storage.

Well, here's what I think is going to happen, it's going to be one of two scenarios:

1. I learn PHP sometime between now and theend of the school year, and I wite the site, guage people's interest, and find a free host, and if there's enough traffic, maybe upgrade to a paid host (with a possible addition of ads, and/or a request to donate money).

2. This is the last post I make, I completely abandon the idea, and someone comes to my house one day and knocks me unconcious, and dumps my body in a river in South America.

I'd like to go with the first one, but god knows if I'll be able to retain my interest in the idea.

I really like the idea of a site with Futurama music on it. Christopher Tyng did a great job creating the music for the series.
