Quick update
But first, I just want to say that all of you are wonderful and absolute lifesavers! So many of you have already sent me links or have mailed me cds of things I lost in the crash. My flist is truly the best and *hugs* to all of you.

As for the HD--still no word. I think I'm half afraid to contact my tech to hear what he has to tell me. But I guess I'll contact him tomorrow to see if he could retrieve *anything* for me off the drive. THen I guess I go from there.

Right now, I need to ask a favor of you guys.

As you know, I lost a lot of my music and lyrics. *sigh* If not for sis, maubast I would have lost them all. It's just a real good thing we share. ;) But I *did* lose a lot and that's where I need your help. I need lyrics from the "Elizabethtown" songs. Do any of you have any of them? And while you're at it, *any* lyrics would be greatly appreciated. Just throw them all in your replies and I'll be forever grateful.

I'm really going to owe you guys big by the time this is all over. I'll try my best to post some pics tomorrow too. *flist hug*

Btw, after losing all of this and so many of my friends experiencing the same, I got to thinking. Is there an LJ where people can post for help in finding stuff--like pics, music, whatever, after a pc crash. Surely we aren't the only fandom that's experienced this. What about the others? Do they have as great friends as I do? Can anyone tell me of any community like this? Seems like it would be really useful to me. I haven't even hit you guys up for stuff I lost in my other older fandoms. We who have lost things, can't be alone in this, right? Or are we?

Thoughts? Ideas? Comments? Suggestions.

*hugs hard* I have no idea if there is such a community but it would be good to have one like that.

Lets hope he could save some stuff off your hard drive.

If you need anything else please tell me.

OMG!!!!!!!! METHOS!!!!!!! There's a fandom I lost everything in--even all the fanfic I wrote! Got any pics you'd like to share?? I love PW and ROG!

And yes, I'm hoping like hell he can save my data!

I'm using a program called EvilLyrics. It automatically gets the lyrics from the net when you're listening to them, or you can type the name in manually, and saves them to your computer.

And I don't know about a comm like that, but it would be a great idea.

PS: DId you got my mail?
araestel From: araestel Date: December 29th, 2005 04:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
Help me out--which mail? I honestly don't know which way is up these days. *hugs*

I'll check out your link! Thank you!!

I just started a new community the other day music_2_share. The goal is to share music (& lyrics if you have them), with at least one new song a day.
Feel free to join. I've not got it going yet really. Just realized I had so many folks on my flist sharing music that there should be a place to stash it all.

Well, I don't know how much help this is but I use A-Z Lyrics to find songs (and you can post in the forum if they don't already have the lyrics, and the reply rate is pretty quick) and for soundtrack lyrics I use ST Lyrics. Hope this helps some.
araestel From: araestel Date: December 30th, 2005 07:19 am (UTC) (Link)
I've used the first one before--I got all the Evanesence lyrics from there. :) But the second one is new to me and I'll try it out. I use Metro Lyrics most often. I found some of the others liked putting viruses on my pc and I just decided to not use those any more and stuck with Metro.

Thanks so much for the link!

*hugs*

Yes, I've used that one before too. ;) I wouldn't even begin to no where to say what all the lyrics are I lost but lord..... hundreds. I had special files for groups like Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Depeche Mode, Led Zep, Pink Floyd... and soloists like George Michael, Kenny Chesney and so many more. My sis helped some but since she hadn't gotten to visit earlier this month, we hadn't shared in awhile. *sigh*

Thanks for the help honey! *hugs*
