Just taking a quick break from fixing the "bad" links on 3pm to bring you some great music from Nujabes after a hectic Thanksgiving. I think it's excellent music to relax to after all that Black Friday shopping as well. Some of my favorite tracks from Jun Seba are below for you all to get a taste of what's new. Shop safe out there and remember to read the signs.
Also, check out up coming artist BLACKENERGY for some "powerful music that's energized and amped".
Israeli musician Omri Levy sets a new stage for how feasible recording music has become with his "about:blank" album release, which was recorded entirely on a Nokia N80, using Alon MP3 dictaphone software. The album is available for download under a Creative Commons Music Sharing License. It's awesome uses of technology such as this that makes the world all the more interesting, while creating new genres of art at the same time.
While you all are getting ready to inject those turkeys, we've been busy injecting you with great music from around the web. I know that was corny, but you knew I had to make that joke at least once here at 3pm Overdose. Anyway, we have a ton of new tracks over at 3pm and lots more on the way. Since we won't see you till next week, we hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving. Please don't forget about us after eating all that good food, and come back to see us after Black Friday.
It's true: The Zune is incompatible with Vista "I really couldn't believe the tip a reader sent in that Microsoft's Zune MP3 player would be incompatible with Windows Vista," writes veteran Microsoft follower Mary Jo Foley of ZDNet. "But on November 14, Microsoft rolled out the Zune player, which doesn't work with Vista." [digg] [story]
Universal Calls MP3 Users Thieves "These devices are just repositories for stolen music, and they all know it, " UMG chairman/CEO Doug Morris says. "So it’s time to get paid for it." [digg] [story]

Not much to report this week on the 3pm front. We are continuing to work really hard to bring updated links and new music next week. Check back regularly for the latest great tunes, and please continue to let us know how much you enjoy the site. It's back to work for us to bring you the best that 3pm has to offer.
Check out Pluggd (beta) for finding and listening to your favorite podcasts. Pluggd is not your ordinary podcast search-n-play site though. It features the amazing new HearHere technology that lets you quickly find parts of an audio or videopodcast that interests you.
Check out the new MP3 search/player site called Reggle. It's sites like this that make it easier to find and play music from the web than ever before. So the question is, do sites like this make 3pm obsolete? I don't think so. Reggle may be a great way to find music you know about, but 3pm is a great place to find music you may not know about. So, for true music lovers out there, sites like Reggle and 3pm actually complement each other quite well. The more resources for finding great music, the better. Use what suits your needs. Finding what you're looking for is all that really matters.
And now we leave you with a video that fits quite well with this post...
We're doing some cleaning up on 3pm these days. Over the next few updates we will be thoroughly checking links from top to bottom. To give a heads up, we though you should know that links from 1 through D [up to the end of DMX tracks] are accurate. A lot of links after that may or may not be valid, and we'll get to some of those in the next update.
As always, we've got a lot of great new music coming in future updates and we're always open to suggestions for how to make your 3pm experience better. To make sure you get the most recently added tracks from 3pm, please subscribe to our RSS feed.
