Removing Old Works

2013-04-03 15:27:25 by Stargenx

Probably going to start removing older songs in order to keep my work current. Please download while you can, if you wish.

Well, I have all your old work here already. If they do suck I can still mock you here even if they are removed then :)

That's a relief. Maybe it won't go from there. :)

Stargenx responds:

You never know!

It's not like I'm going to tear through and remove dozens of songs, I'm going to start with some of the 'worst' ones, maybe 2-3 to start and then see where it goes from there.

@gadogry In step 1, did you copy the source code directly or do you have some kind of plugin/program to parse the URLs from the links? With mad keyboard + mouse skillz then who knows, maybe it's actually faster than my method. It definitely saves some bandwidth/requests in accessing the download link directly though. You'd think there would be a userscript for directly downloading all tracks from a specific user already, gotta give Xaotic a tip...

@Cyberdevil: I thought about doing that, but what I ended up proceeding with was the following:

1. go to stargenx's audio page, copy all 150-ish links, paste on notepad.
2. go to www.newgrounds.com/audio/download/XXXXXX, which is the direct link for downloading the song with audio ID XXXXXX.
3. Use mad keyboard + mouse skillz to efficiently paste the 6-digit IDs from the notepad onto the browser address bar.
4. Intersperse with checking twitter/facebook or screwing around every 5-8 downloads 'cause I paste too fast and NG/my internet can't handle if I keep pasting non-stop.

@Stargenx: I think you have enough new stuff to distract people from the old stuff -- and since your new stuff is more popular, chances are a user would get to you via a newer song.

I just started the process of listening to your old stuff -- your sounds seemed to be not as good then (e.g. some of the drums sounded kinda weak), but many of your compositions were still quite decent.

Just think about how other embarrassing situations turn into entertaining stories or memories over time. :) But hey, it's your work, don't let my nostalgic sentiments keep you from living a shamefree and blissful life! :P

Btw @gadogry , the fastest way to download NG audio is first disabling flash player, then opening all tracks in new tab and keeping a constant queue of downloads in the background. Without flash disabled each tab will run twice the bandwidth.

The worse your old work is, the better the new one will seem. It's both fun an interesting to hear progress, and always a shame when people get rid of creations they don't like even when so many others might come to appreciate it. I appreciate the heads up though, will download the files and add to my NG AP collection, but I really hope you reconsider!

Stargenx responds:

I don't know what to say! I feel that they are embarrassing, for the most part. Perhaps I'll change my mind. I'm mulling the idea over thus far.

I'll unfav you >: (

Stargenx responds:

Like I said earlier, I don't feel that they live up to what I can do now and possibly reflect badly on me for keeping them up.

Do you think those older songs are not representative of your skill level/musical taste anymore?

Anyway, now I have a Stargenx folder on my computer that has like 150 files in it. Took like an hour, and I thought I did it in the most efficient way possible.

Stargenx responds:

Wow, your organization is most likely better than mine. I appreciate the feedback and am humbled by the praise that you laud. In response to your question: Yes, I don't believe that some of my older songs reflect well on me and the music that I do now.

That's a very foolish idea.

How so, Eltistinen?
