Anyone who hasn’t heard this needs to.

I’m pretty sure this is the song they play when you arrive at heaven
That is so beautiful oh my God. Like is that literally actually the real version of it? is that actually what it’s really like? Oh gosh they need to bring this tune back to the computers. This song + Windows 7
It was this long because it took a computer 3 minutes to start up in 2001.
Simulate the real thing by randomly pausing it and unpausing it every 5 to 20 seconds. And simulate the physical spinning hard drive sound by groaning staccato throughout.

holy shit no this can’t be real
I had an XP for like 7 years and never heard this, holy shit - somebody tell me who actually made this.
I feel like I have seen the face of God.
I was skeptical ALL THE WAY up until the last actual second
then it all made sense.
I was looking all over for this, and now that I have found it again, I’m rectifying my last mistake and reblogging it here so I don’t lose this again.
Here’s a comic to go with the music (I didn’t draw it):
Guys this is really great stuff but please stop pretending that this is an official startup sound or someting
The source is right there in the OP, for goodness’ sake
This was uploaded on 25 May, 2010 (nearly 9 years after the initial release of XP) by a German Newgrounds user called Bas3008 (again, his name is right there in the metadata; you can see it by looking at the audio bar). The style-matching work that he did on this piece is fucking incredible and I think he deserves a little credit for it.
Reblogging again for the bit by soakingwetandclueless about the source!

God DAMN thats some Shakespearean shit right there
The fact that that comment comes from sassy-gay-justice makes this whole thing, for me
Been having some fun sketching knights for a casual personal project. This one belongs to the Order of the Sacred Chalice. An order that is shrouded in mysticism and wields sacred weapons of ancient origins. I particularly liked this one, so I figured I’d share it.
[[Also, guys, I’ve gotten so many messages and asks the last few weeks… Makes me super happy, but I’m not sure how I can reply to them like I’ve been doing in the past… Might have to divide them into sizable batches and post over time! I’ll get there!]]
[[ I should totally put the link to the cinematic here: A New Dawn ]]
Works on a sci-fi yuri project – Spends most of the time drawing mech suits. Good job!
every time i do it makes me laugh
Mark Ciavarella Jr, a 61-year old former judge in Pennsylvania, has been sentenced to nearly 30 years in prison for literally selling young juveniles for cash. He was convicted of accepting money in exchange for incarcerating thousands of adults and children into a prison facility owned by a developer who was paying him under the table. The kickbacks amounted to more than $1 million.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has overturned some 4,000 convictions issued by him between 2003 and 2008, claiming he violated the constitutional rights of the juveniles – including the right to legal counsel and the right to intelligently enter a plea. Some of the juveniles he sentenced were as young as 10-years old.
Ciavarella was convicted of 12 counts, including racketeering, money laundering, mail fraud and tax evasion. He was also ordered to repay $1.2 million in restitution.
His “kids for cash” program has revealed that corruption is indeed within the prison system, mostly driven by the growth in private prisons seeking profits by any means necessary.
Why might this not be a HUGE national story and his name not household? I’ll give you one guess what color those kids were.
Stay FUCKING Woke.
We are not crazy. This shit is happening.
No, it’s fine. I didn’t need my heart.
Are we crying about a doodle of dinosaurs?

Oh god it hurts why would you ever
The meteor was coming.
Oh, God, it was coming and she didn’t know what to do. Her son, her beautiful little son, pressed close to her side, craning his neck to look up at his Mother.
“Mummy, why is everyone moving? There’s plenty of food here.” He asked in his sweet, innocent voice.
“Because, my sweet, sometimes it is best that we move on. It is our way.” She replied, forcing the words past the lump in her throat.
“Oh,” Her son said, turning his gaze to the fiery rock in the sky that would spell their deaths out for them, “the old Triceratops told me it was cuzza that rock. He said the rock could hurt us real bad.” He continued, not understanding what he meant by those words in his innocence.
“Triceratops is being silly, he just wanted to tease you one more time before he left.” She lied, choking on her tears. Oh, God, he son, her lovely son, was going to die not understanding.
She turned her face to the meteor- it was close now. It wouldn’t be long. Swinging her head around, she dropped her face to her sons and nuzzled him one last time. “Let’s play a game, yes? And then we’ll go join the others.” She suggested.
“Okay! What game shall we play, Mummy?”
“Let’s play pretend. We will imagine the sort of place we would like to move to, and when we open our eyes, that’s where we shall be.”
“How do we play?”
One last look at the meteor- it was almost time.
“Close your eyes and imagine the place, and count to thirty out loud. Just like when we play Hide-and-Seek.” She curled herself around her son, both of them now laid on the beach.
“Ok, Mummy. 1, 2, 3, 4…”
She watched the meteor approach with sad eyes, and just before it hit land she turned her head, laying it and her neck over her son and bracing herself.
Her son had not yet said 30, but it was over.
