Get the Best Fight Songs (HQ Stereo) on 20 Different Music CD’s. Please Help Support This Site.

Welcome to the “LARGEST” College Football Fight Song web site in the universe, where all the songs are now in MP3 format. I have always been a fan of college football and especially the Nittany Lions of Penn State. All the MP3’s on this site have been compressed 11 to 1 in size and reformatted in mono, all to help save webspace. It has been a rough ride these past 2-3 years as interest seems to hae waned a bit and it is more costly to keep the site up for FREE! And now certain schools like Miami (FL), Washington and Utah forced me to remove the school’s songs from the website, even though they are free to download and isn’t this kind of like FREE advertisement for those schools? And all those millions of dollars the football programs bring and to top that with the price of tuition, you would think they would want to share the songs with their alumni, current students and fans of those schools. If anyone can help, please do to get those songs back up and available on this site. I am also in the process of adding as many or all of the football schools from the FCS (Football Championship Subdivision). After completion, there will be well over 1,000 total songs for you FREE to download. I will also be reformatting all the music CD’s, moving teams to the correct conference CD and adding all the new schools, even the FCS schools.

Also, you will still be able to purchase your favorite school songs via email for $5 or less per school or per conference. Especially the FCS conferences, where 1-2 schools songs will be prevailant throughout. You will want the higher quality songs for your ringtone(s) on your cellphone and iPhones. But please don’t forget about the CD’s, they also help in the funding for this site or shopping at one of the sponsors on this site. And if you are not considering a purchase at this time, please consider a friendly donation of $10 or $20 or any value at that to make sure this website stays up and running for many years to come and into the future. Thank you very much for your continued support.

College Football Fight Music CD’s (21 Volumes)

My College Football Fight Music CD/MP3 Store has changed many times over the years as the NCAA Football Conference realignment is a never ending process as money dictates which schools play in the
(5) major BCS conferences and who play in the other FBS mid-major football conferences. My collection now contains 21 different CD’s, with Volumes 1 & 13 focus on all five of the power five conferences (ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, PAC-12, SEC and Notre Dame). These same conferences are also focused on: Volumes 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 19, 20 and 14 (alma maters). The mid-major conferences, which now include the AAC, CONF-USA, MAC, MWC an the SUNBELT are representive on Volumes 9, 10, 11, 12 and 15 (alma maters). I also now have different fight music CD’s (Volumes 16, 17 and 18 (alma maters) focusing on the schools from the FCS (Football Championship Subdivision). Of course it is impossible to include all the songs on the CD’s, thats for both the FCS and FBS CD’s, so you can also purchase the individual songs from each college for only $1-$5 each depending on the number of songs I have available. And if you already purchased in the past, at least a donation would be of great help to me. To send a donation, just click on the PayPal banner just below. Thank you very much.

How to Become a Game Designer #school #game #design


How to become a game designer

With the advent of arcade, home console, computer, and now mobile and tablet games, game design has become an elaborate process. Specialists trained in a variety of disciplines collaborate to create great computer or video games replete with state-of-the-art animation and visual effects. These individuals need not be in the same room, city or even the same state. Not only are many game designers (about 57 percent) self-employed, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a significant portion work from home, regardless of their employment.

Historically, game design has primarily been male-dominated, but in the past 25 years, more women have been entering the field. From 1989 through 2009, women went from being 3 percent to 11 percent of the game design workforce, and since 2009, the number of women hired by gaming companies has tripled.

What are the educational requirements?

If you are interested in pursuing a career in game design, go to college the minimum requirement for employment is typically a bachelor’s degree, the BLS reports. Some schools have dedicated degree programs in game design, but if you can’t find one that suits you, remember it isn’t the only educational option. You can earn this degree in computer graphics, art, animation or a related field.

While it may be helpful to possess artistic ability and talent, people lacking in those areas can often compensate with robust technical and computer skills, and those abilities might be preferred by some employers. Likewise, those who do not have strong computer skills may make up for it through demonstrable artistic talent.

Some skills that game designers may need include:

  • Computer programming and knowledge of programming languages
  • Coding
  • Problem solving and critical thinking
  • Knowledge of audio and video equipment
  • Written and verbal communication

If you’re interested in pursuing a degree in game design or computer programming, consider one of these sponsored schools:

How much do game designers make?

While the BLS does not have individual information on the salary of game designers it does provide information on multimedia artists and animators, which includes the role of game designer. According to the BLS, the mean annual wage for these artists and animators in the U.S. was $72,400 as of May 2013. At the same time, the top five states for annual mean wages were:

  • California: $88,150
  • Washington: $76,900
  • Washington D.C. $76,110
  • New York: $72,530
  • New Mexico: $70,310

If you’ve been called a gamer for as long as you remember, you might as well make a career out of it, right? To learn more about how to become a game designer and for a complete list of sources, check out the visual that follows.

    Shopping Addiction Help Treatment

    Shopping addiction, also called compulsive shopping and omniomania, is one of the most socially “acceptable” behavioural addictions in the world. Shopping is a normal part of life but it becomes a problem when people start feeling compelled to buy things they don’t need or even want, and find themselves getting a thrill or “rush” from the experience of shopping, both online and in stores.

    Some “shopaholics” may make an effort to stop but find themselves unable to stop spending money, which often leads to many financial difficulties. This in turn causes shame, guilt and anger, which makes the problem worse as shopping becomes a coping mechanism, and often causes relationships to break down.

    Symptoms of Shopping Addiction

    Do you know someone who is worrying you by exhibiting possible signs of having a shopping addiction? Try asking yourself the following questions.

    • Do they hide evidence of purchases like receipts, bags or even the items themselves, perhaps even throwing newly bought things away?
    • Are they preoccupied with shopping and tend to do it a lot at the expense of relationships and other commitments?
    • Do they stay out a lot of the time in shopping centres or spend a lot of time on their computer using online shopping sites?
    • Do they seem to be having problems with money but dismiss these or get angry if questioned about it?

    Do you know someone who is suffering from a shopping addiction? Call us now for free help and advice on how simple and easy it can be to get free of a shopping addiction and live a happier, healthier life.

    Video Game Designer A college degree or certificate in game design or creative writing will help you get hired as a video game designer. Skills to look for in a video game designer education program include game theory, storytelling storyboarding, game planning and strategy, creative content writing, brainstorming creative thinking, and game design project management.

    Video Game Programmer For game design programming jobs, the education requirement is typically a bachelor’s degree in video game development, computer science, software engineering, mobile application development, game simulation programming, or a similar programming-focused area of study. Video game programmers should be fluent in the object-oriented programming (OOP) languages commonly used in video game design, such as Java, C and C++.

    Video Game Artist Education requirements for game art jobs ideally include a specialized 2- or 4-year game art degree, however a traditional art school degree is acceptable in many cases. Video game artists must first master traditional art techniques and principles, such as form, perspective color theory, before they can apply these skills to game elements like characters environments. A prospective video game artist’s most crucial asset is his or her design portfolio; the stronger and more relevant your portfolio, the less you will have to rely on your formal education to land the job. The ability to effectively use modern graphic design computer animation software, such as Adobe Flash, will also help you get hired as a video game artist.

    With video game popularity at an all-time high, schools are evolving their game design education programs with topics like 3D modeling, character animation, world design, storyboarding, simulation programming and more. Research and compare the top-reviewed game design programs in the U.S. Canada and online.

Strong problem-solving skills are key for game designers, as the video game creation process is ripe with challenges and pitfalls. To succeed as a video game designer you need to be patient and willing to work long hours and overtime to solve these problems. Successful video game designers need the ability to work well as part of a team, as video games are an intensely collaborative medium.
