Mystery Zeppelin

I'm downloading all my files off my university Box account before I lose access to them, and it's mostly expected things--various folders from courses, workshops, other initiatives. And then, randomly, exactly one song?

An 11-minute version of Led Zeppelin's "You Shook Me"???

What is it doing there? Where did it come from? Why?

I'M SO CURIOUS. I apparently uploaded it on March 17, 2015, but I have no memory of this, and have no idea under what circumstances this might have occurred because 1) I've never been an avid user of this Box account, and 2) I don't have any strong associations with this particular song?? But I guess I do now.

Edit: I did the obvious thing and looked to see if I'd posted anything on this journal on March 17, 2015, and apparently I did! Literally a post that was like, I put iTunes on shuffle this morning and my entire morning routine was encapsulated by the two longest songs in the world, so here you go! and posted links to the files. XP Nice work, past self--that premium content for a freemium price!

The post also included this quote, which I'd completely forgotten about but which I've now become re-enamored of:

"Your friend won't believe you. You see, all that descends from the sky is not necessarily divinely inspired. This itself is one of your 'miracles.'"

[...]

Why did they choose me? Because I chose them. I spent my whole life searching for them, waiting for them, relying on their protection, until meeting them became inevitable.

You find this particular? Never mind. In the so-called Age of Ignorance, before Islam, our ancestors used to form their gods from dates and eat them when in need. Who is more ignorant then, dear sir, I or those who ate their gods?

You might say: "It's better for people to eat their gods than for the gods to eat them."

But I'd respond, "Yes, but their gods were made of dates."
