QuietMelodies is now open!

15 06 2009


As many of you might already know, the new portal is finally open!!!!!  I am so sorry that it has taken so long to happen, but I do hope you find it worth the wait.  Some of the new features you will be able to enjoy are being able to message any member & being able to post your own favorites.  There will also be a forum added so that requests and such can be made there.  Eventually hope to in essence mirror this blog there and of course have new content available.  The new music available should be substantially more than here as there will be multiple people posting =-).  Please stop by and join your NEW home for QuietMusic – www.quietmelodies.com!

PHP coding help

11 05 2009


As so many of you have been patiently waiting for the new portal to open, I felt it was only right for me to ask for your help.  The problem that I’ve encountered is the actual coding involved with getting the portal to operate correctly from the outset.  I’m fairly conversant in PHP, but my current problem is beyond my ability to handle.  So if anyone has PHP coding experience, and would be willing to help, please leave a comment below.  Thank you very much in advance =-)

Hello!  Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.  Here you will find all manner of quiet music.  The stuff that just might make you smile, laugh or even cry is here.  Once I get a good base of music available, I’ll be putting up a poll to better get an idea of what YOU the user would like to see.  So please, enjoy your stay, and don’t hesitate to comment.  I’ve added a couple more pages at the top.  The first addition is just an informal way for you to comment or suggest something you would like to see here.  The second addition is a page to help out one of your fellow viewers.  Please click on the links to get a more detailed description.


I’ve added a requests page up on the topbar. Why don’t you go take a peek? ;-)

New Trouble

29 04 2009

Hi Everyone,

It seems that when it rains, it pours.  I woke up this morning (after getting about 2 hours of sleep) to the smell of my main computer literally burning.  The motherboard had short-circuited to the case, and caused a fire inside the case itself.  I managed to put out the fire without much trouble, but the damage done to the motherboard cannot be repaired.  I have applied for an RMA on the board itself, as it’s been working fine for 5 months without an issue at all, and then this happens.  Hopefully that will be approved and I can get my main system back up and running.  Until it’s back online though, the uploading will have to wait.  The drive that I backed-up all my mp3’s on was damaged by the power surge that went through the case at the time of the shortcircuit, and so I will have to try to recover what I can on the drive itself.  It’s a shame too, because it was a 2tb external drive that I just bought.  Right now, I’m hating firewire like you can’t believe =-(.  Anyway, please bear with me, obviously, there are things happening that are way beyond my control.  I will try to take time tomorrow to answer all the comments, and do apologize for not doing it tonight.  Extremely tired, and have had a rough day =-(.  Thanks once again for all the support, we’ll make it through this.



Rapidshare Troubles

27 04 2009

Hello again everyone,

I have horrible news that just happened.  Evidently someone has complained about the files that I have been sharing via Rapidshare.  This has caused my premium account to become frauded, and in the process all of the files that were associated with the account have also become frauded.  The only way that I know around this is to find another host and start the uploading process all over again.  I cannot apologize enough about this, and wish there was something that could be done, but to my knowledge, there isn’t.  If anyone has some suggestions or ideas, please let me know.  I’m at my wits end.

New Hosting

27 04 2009


Hi everyone!

Have some great news!  I was finally able to purchase some very good hosting late last night.  So far the service has been phenomenal.  I was also able to purchase a domain – QuietMelodies.  I know that it’s not QuietMusic, but unfortunately, the .com was taken.  I prefer to stay away from anything other than .com domains, so wound up with QuietMelodies.  I do hope that everyone approves =-).

I’ll be setting up the scripting on the site the next couple of days, and then launch the site for everyone to use.  Please let me know if you can think of anything I should add while doing the actual setup itself, as it will be much easier to do before the actual launch.

Dead Can Dance – Within The Realm Of A Dying Sun

000949f9Dead Can Dance – Within The Realm Of A Dying Sun
MP3 @ 320 Kbps | 38:48 min | 1987 | 118 MB | 10% Recovery Record

Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry actually manage to out-shimmer the Cocteau Twins on this 1987 release, which finds their beautiful minimalism adorned with increasingly developed compositional genius. The cascading melodies that grace “Summoning of the Muse” and “Persephone” are tailor-made for that next Christmas or Winter Solstice celebration, while more conventional (albeit somewhat somber) pop tracks like “Xavier” and “Anywhere Out of the World” keep the going from getting too arcane. All in all, more fun than a barrel of goths.
