Hello Claire!

Forgive me for gatecrashing your LJ. Earlier in the week we were discussing on txvoodoo's journal about ripping the audio from the John Barrowman songs she posted. Voodoo has now posted mp3s, but they are only 128kbps and not the best quality and she says she is happy if anyone else wants to have a go.

I just wondered whether you might have a try with your software and see if you can rip them to a higher quality? If you're busy or not interested, don't worry, I'll see if I can find some software to do it. But as I'm a complete beginner I thought it was worth asking as you'll probably do it swifter as you know what you're doing!

Anyway, let me know. And many thanks in advance if you do have time to do it!

(Love the picture of Jamie Bamber btw, it really brings out the green of his eyes!)

hi! you're not gatecrashing my lj! i don't mind anyhow. =)

i just ripped them. they are of better quality than Voodoo's, i think. unfortunately, there's a couple of jumps i can't get rid of, re-recording doesn't seem to help. might just be the play back on my computer, it's a tad slow these days.

i tried uploading them to my site, but my ftp thingy crapped out on me after one song, grr. i don't have time to find somewhere to upload the rest to tonight cos i've got work in the morning.

here's a link to the one i managed to upload:

John Barrowman - Before the Parade Passes By

if you think that's alright quality, i'll upoad the rest tomorrow when i get in from work!

i love that pic of Jamie *swoons* he has really pretty eyes! mind you, i think i love pretty much every picture of Jamie! he is all with the hotness!

and oh my god i love your icon!!! *drools*

I've downloaded the track and it certainly sounds a lot clearer than Voodoo's. Thanks! My Winamp tells me it is encoded at 160kbps which is a bit better than Voodoo's so that may account for it. And you seem to have got rid of the hiss. I don't suppose you could rip them at an even higher quality - maybe up to 320kbps? That makes a bigger file but would be better if burned to CD....

Otherwise the 160kbps tracks are a great improvement - thanks again!

Here's another of my John icons to make you wibble. This is possibly my favourite. :-)

I can't get used to Jamie Bamber's accent in Battlestar Galactica. To me he will always be dear Archie. :-)

*thud* that is one hell of an icon! do you have the original pic of that?! i would kill to make a desktop wallpaper out of that! (or bribe a friend into doing it for me =P) wayhey for kilts!!! no wonder it's your favourite!

ahem, back on topic... there's still a bit of a hiss in mine, i'll see if i can make it higher quality. the WireTap settings aren't exactly clear. it doesn't mention the 160kbps anywhere at all, i just went with the default settings. *shrugs* will see what i can do tomorrow.

you're welcome by the way, it's no trouble!

i never watched Hornblower *hangs head in shame* i did, however, flick onto ITV3 right a Jamie Bamber bit once. hee! i giggle every time i hear his English accent. especially in BSG things, it's just funny when he's standing next to a Viper talking in a English accent, lol. were you at the SG9 convention in february? a whole day of the English accent *sigh* i spent most of the time he was on stage trying not to giggle about how cute he was =P *huggles Jamie*

The original picture is on the bio page of John's website www.johnbarrowman.com. Sadly, it's not very big so I doubt you could make a wallpaper of it. But it's rather fab. :-)

You've never watched Hornblower? Oh what a lot of Jamie-goodness you have to discover! And it's all so deliciously slashy, right up to the end...

I'm not a huge BSG fan, although my bf loves it and I can appreciate its qualities while finding it rather too bleak for my taste. I'm glad you got to see Jamie at a convention though.

Thanks for doing these mp3s - it is very much appreciated!

thanks, will go find the pic later!

i just got in from work and i'm going to see On a Clear Day tonight so i don't have time to rip the songs tonight! hope you can live without them for another day!!!

my friend watches Hornblower and was going to buy some of the dvds so i'll borrow them from her. and yay slash!

i love BSG to bits! Jamie especially! =P
