This seems to be playing waaay too fast.

Huh. The download button plays it at normal speed, but the preview bar does not.

I'm trying to imagine how it would sound slowed down a bit, and my imagination likes it.

Try the little "disk" button, carsonb; it seems to work.

Excellent, thanks!

Huh. Well, it claims that it's a 32K file, and yet doesn't sound like complete ass, so I'm guessing there's something bad in the meta information on the mp3.

(I'm trying to get this fixed.)

I bet matt's flash player assumes a certain bitrate that the MP3 is below. A lot of players have weird problems when dealing with mp3s below 128kbs. Listening to lectures recorded at 32kbs sound pretty much like what's happening here.

Cool, I got it to work after clicking the disk. I like it!

This is amazing at the fast speed. I'm sampling it for my next Famicom title.

(If anyone wants a higher-quality mp3 or m4a of this song [it has a mandolin in it, really!], e-mail me, and I'll send it to you.)

I like it fast.

I like it fast too - the change in frequency makes the bass line way too loud and that makes me laugh for many reasons. If that famicom title is made I wanna see it!

Excellent! At multiple speeds!
