Christian Audio - Jul

Here's another free monthly audiobook offer, but this one religious. Christian Audio [christianaudio.com] gives away a free audiobook title every month, and occasionally the site also has other limited-time offer freebies, as is currently the case.

The Christian Audio free audiobook download for the month of July is Power Through Prayer (Unabridged) by E.M. Bounds, normally priced at $12.98. There is also an additional free download for one week only and it's a very topical item, too -- A Parent's Guide to Harry Potter (Unabridged) by Gina Burkart, which is also normally priced at $12.98.

In order to participate in the free audiobook giveaway you are required to register for an account at the site, check out, and input a coupon to receive the download free. (The coupon code is listed on the Free Downloads page with the title to which it applies.)

Tune in monthly for another free religious audiobook download. If you want the Harry Potter title, make certain to get it quickly. As I'm sure you know, much has been made (in the press) of Christian "acceptance" of the Harry Potter series, so this title could prove an interesting listen even if one does not have children.

  • Download Christian Audio Free Downloads [web]
    a) A Parent's Guide to Harry Potter (Unabridged) by Gina Burkart (free for 1 week only)
    b) Power Through Prayer (Unabridged) by E.M. Bounds (free offer for July)

NOTE: You need a Christian Audio (web site) account in order to participate in this offer. Account registration is free. Audiobook downloads are generally available in a choice of two formats, either MP3 or Windows Media Audio [WMA]. A coupon code is required to receive the audiobook download/s for free. The necessary coupon code or codes is clearly noted on the Free Downloads page of the Christian Audio web site.

Amazon Unbox Promo [wmv]

This promotion has ended. You may still purchase the movies it references, but now at their regular price/s.

If you haven't tried the Amazon Unbox Video Downloads service now is a good time to give it a go, as there are currently two movies available for free download. (The free movie "promo" works even if you already use the service.)

Additionally, if you are a new Unbox customer, you should also get a $1.99 USD credit added to your account after you place your first Unbox order. This credit is good towards another video download -- which means you could also get a free TV Show episode as most of these list at the $1.99 price point. "Purchasing" either one of the two free movies should count as your first Unbox order. (Kinda cool to get a free $1.99 purchase credit in addition to two free movies, eh?)

The two movies currently available for free download on Amazon Unbox are: El Callejon de los Milagros (1995), which just happens to be the most award-winning movie in Mexican film history, and Inspiracion (2001), a romantic comedy also from Mexico. What you use the (potential) $1.99 credit for is up to you.

Grab 'em while it's hot as there is no telling how long this promotion (or snafu) will last. Well actually, it's a one week promotion. Lookit, from the site:

"Unbox now offers Latin American and Spanish blockbusters from Venevision International. The digital video is pristine, the English subtitles crisp. This week, own two for free: Salma Hayek in El Callejon de los Milagros, Mexico's award-winningest drama, and the frothy comedy Inspiracion. Download an international film festival and watch it tonight."1


NOTE: Amazon Unbox Video Downloads are in DRM-protected formats. Each download is either a DVD-quality PC File [WMV] or a TiVo "Best Quality" video playable on a Series2 or Series3 TiVo DVR. In addition, you also have the option of downloading a portable media player version of any videos that you purchase. Portable version videos -- in Amazon's own container [AMZN] -- work in most Windows Plays For Sure mobile devices. You need an Amazon account in order to use the Unbox Video Downloads service. Account registration is free. All Unbox purchases (after the first one) are made using 1-Click ordering (which means you'll need a valid credit card on file), so do verify all prices before submitting an order.

Labrador Sampler [mp3]

Swedish pop record label, Labrador [labrador.se] -- home of artists [ingenting], Pelle Carlberg, Suburban Kids With Biblical Names, and quite a few others -- has put together the Labrador Summer Sampler 2007 [MP3], a 68-track sampler that is being made available for free download via The Pirate Bay [thepiratebay.org].

That's right, here's a very hip record company asking fans to download its content via a P2P (tracker) site. But this is because Labrador wants you to try the music! And Labrador realizes this is an efficient way to get the music out there. (Besides, Labrador's own servers were swamped when the sampler was offered as a direct download.)

Either way, it's about time P2P started getting wide-spread use for the download of authorized content. Support the movement! Go get the sampler and enjoy! (You'll need a torrent client, of course.)


Sunpilots Spot [mp3+mp4]


Above video: The Sunpilots "Spotlight in the Sun" Music Video.

The Sunpilots [thesunpilots.com], a fun and groovy alternative rock band hailing from down under (Sydney, Australia), have created a Backstage Area of their website which will provide fans with exclusive downloadable content and other "just for fans" items.

In order to access the Sunpilots Backstage Area, you are asked to register for a membership. (This requires filling out a registration form which asks for your name, email address, postcode, country, and state.) As part of your membership, you'll receive email updates from the Sunpilots (mailing list).

Note: Make certain your email address is valid, as you will need to receive an account activation email containing a link to confirm your Backstage Area registration.

Once you receive a Sunpilots Backstage Pass (i.e., you've successfully joined the site), you can login to find these downloadable goodies, currently on offer:

  1. The Sunpilots Screensaver v1
  2. Desktop Backgrounds Pack 1
  3. "Spotlight in the Sun" - Acoustic B-side (2007) [192kbps/4MB/MP3]
  4. "Spotlight in the Sun" Music Video (2007) [28MB/MP4]
All available for free download. While items 1 & 2 are nice, I thought items 3&4 would be of particular interest to my fellow small-screen media junkies. You can also watch the music video above, to see if it's your kinda thing before bothering to download it.... If you're a fan of the band already or want to check 'em out this is a nice way to do it -- by getting some free content for your personal media player.

Wintergreen LP [mp3+mp4]


Above video: Wintergreen performs live at Sonic Boom Records in Seattle on 09-Apr-06.

In 1982 Atari released an E.T. video game based on the blockbuster movie of the same name. The game was an abysmal failure. Urban Legend holds that Atari buried the several million unsold copies in a Nevada desert landfill.

In the video for their single When I Wake Up directed by Keith Schofield [keithschofield.com], Los Angeles indie band Wintergreen [myspace.com/wintergreen] are inspired to undertake an excellent adventure to find said stash, after playing the E.T. game on a vintage Atari 2600 -- hooked to an old TV and everything!

The Wintergreen video isn't the first time director Schofield has made use of video game imagery in a project. (Check his web site for clips.) But video game nostalgia is the plot in this case. The video for When I Wake Up became a big hit with gamers (and other internet viewers in general), receiving some 100,000+ hits after Schofield posted it to his web site.

Due to this starring role in such a well-watched clip, it could be said that Wintergreen have become cult icons. (Schofield, too for that matter.) But the band hasn't let the status go to their heads. They are currently giving away a digital download of their latest album, (Around &) Around Again, for free!

As a bonus, not only does the ZIP file of the digital album [192kbps/MP3] include lyrics [PDF] but there's also a copy of the When I Wake Up video [MP4]. Thus, you'll get your very own portable media player compatible version to watch at leisure, again and again. Ah, cue the nostalgia!

Get the album quick, before Wintergreen come to their senses!

Chamillionaire Mixtape

Grammy® Award-winning Houston rapper Chamillionaire (Hakeem Seriki), who sold some 4 million-plus units of his debut studio album The Sound Of Revenge, is currently giving away a free 22 track (digital) Mixtape, called Mixtape Messiah 3, along with a companion DVD (both are downloads). Album art is also available on the site. (The mixtape and DVD was released yesterday.)

Cham won a Grammy® for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group, for his #1 single Ridin'. The cut featured rapper Krayzie Bone of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony fame. The song was later parodied to perfection, as White & Nerdy, by "Weird Al" Yankovic.

Cham knows it's important to connect 1-to-1 with his fans, and he has been using the internet for several years to make this happen. His much anticipated sophomore studio album, Ultimate Victory, drops on 18-Sep-07. This is just something to tide you hip-hop fans over.
