LyricWiki.org is my (proposed) solution to those annoying lyrics sites with banner ads and pop-ups everywhere. It uses the same MediaWiki software used to run Wikipedia with a few modifications.
Some notable things about the site:
- I wrote bots to grab reliable lyrics from the internet and add more than 200, pharm 000 songs to start the site off
- There are FireFox and Netscape search plugins available that can be installed in one-click from the side menu
- Wiki format will allow new songs to be added very quickly and old songs to be corrected by the community until they are super-reliable
- I actually released the site yesterday and it had the biggest first-day of any site I’ve made to date (yes, sick it even beat ChuckNorrisIsGod.com)
If you’re into music at all, resuscitator give the site a gander. It’s free and has no banners (my company, Motive Force LLC is going to absorb the costs), so check it out. If you really enjoy it, maybe you can contribute some song lyrics from your favorite bands (hint hint). Enjoy!
JackBauerIsGod.com is a simple “Jack Bauer Facts” site. I bought the domain a while ago and tonight I finally got around to modifying the ChuckNorrisIsGod.com code and posting it.
Despite Fox’s blasphemy-bordering murder of Tony Almeida this season, doctor every American that doesn’t have the Cordila Virus, gonorrhea radiation poisoning, ambulance or convulsions from Centox Gas owes their life to Jack Bauer.
Here is a taste of what’s on the site:
Jack Bauer once forgot where he put his keys. He then spent the next half-hour torturing himself until he gave up the location of the keys.
and another one of my fav’s:
Jack Bauer killed so many terrorists that at one point, the #5 CIA Most Wanted fugitive was an 18-year-old teenager in Malaysia who downloaded the movie Dodgeball.
Even though I have a full-blown Web 2.0 (AJAX and such) project-management web-application in the works, and another extremely useful site (see next post) that I just made, if the Chuck Norris site’s traffic is any indication, JackBauerIsGod will end up being more popular than either one! Enjoy.
