Look to the right.

Do you see that music widget thing? If you click on it you get an ad about how cool widgetbox is. However I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to get my songs to play on this thing. I assume I have to upload them somewhere, but where? What do I do? How do I share a song? I feel so frightened and confused by this interweb thing.

I spent all day yesterday recording a single tape until the tape machine ate up the tape and yanked it out of the cassette. I had to rewind and fast forward using the tip of a pen. And finally, it completely died. I wish there was a way to magically digitize all this music, all my tapes have become obsolete in the last 24 hours. We no longer have any tape boom boxes or even an alarm clock with a tape deck in it. Not even a Walkman. All tape playing devices are broken and gone. It is officially the end of an era.

You can probably get another machine really, really cheap, even a cassette walkman.
OR you can wait until someone else finally gets around to transferring his archives (like Jolly Ramey at CBGB in the late 80s) to digital and inherit the machine that lives here (currently on it's side by the Mac waiting to work where it has been for two or three years).

Try this one. At least I think this is what you are trying to do.
