Worth reading for the feelings it generates, if not for its logic.

How do I convert the multipart zips from DRIVE into a format I can reinstall with TWRP?

(Sorry if this is answered somewhere, but I can't find it on XDA.)

5 Current Purim Songs --- Please share (and, if you know anybody who would want to record them or a different song, please let me know!!!)

Oh, oh, oh adarrrr I get Purim feeling yeah
Oh, oh, oh adarrrr I get Purim feeling yeah
I get a feeling like that every every every adar

oh oh I get Purim feeling

oh adarrrr I get Purim feeling
I get a feeling like that every every every adar oh oh
I get Purim feeling, yeah


Yes Haman, tricks up his sleeve went gambling with his plan
kill me, stab me, coins in bucket so he can have me
I'll be the prime minister one day
Adar fifteenth, oh, you like that gossip
glug glug you the one drinking that God-trip Haman
Now I gotta work and you're hung
How many hanging sons you want?

Time's got a new spirit, speak it and it's done
ahashverosh tossed in his bed and I won
when the king wants to honor, the best is done, son
gown and litter, silky persian
I'm glad you say that, I wanna play back
Haman stewed, what he needed was our payback
A Benjamin boy, going way back
I got a feeling it's our break, Amalek

Oh, oh, oh adarrrr I get Purim feeling yeah
I get a feeling like that every every every adar oh oh I get Purim feeling

oh adarrrr I get Purim feeling
I get a feeling like that every every every adar oh oh
I get Purim feeling, yeah

The brilliant plot, rock on Esther
We got power, feel so royal
in his mind, ima disloyal
Drinking party, Haman's plot foiled…


Haman's wicked plan, never giving in
Getting killed's not an option, had to save my kin
Witness I got the smarts, of a tactician
Know fear, if you keep to Haman's plan [ken?]

Jew flow, God's spark, that crown
You looking at the king's right hand man now
Stronger than ever can't hold Jews down
hundred twenty seven territories love us now

war game face, aint it cray
See Jews running through the hordes with the army
slick tricks, see, I'm Machiavelli,

G's invisible hand, do you understand me?

Oh, oh, oh adarrrr I get Purim feeling yeah
I get a feeling like that every every every adar oh oh I get Purim feeling

oh adarrrr I get Purim feeling
I get a feeling like that every every every adar oh oh
I get Purim feeling, yeah


[musical interlude]

(fading in)purim feelin', groggering
I know you got the Purim feelin'
Let's send gifts, let's dress Up
Gotta love the hamentashin'
megillah, let's read it
I know you got Purim feelin'
Let's give it, let's Give it
spread love to poor we're givin'

Oh, oh, oh adarrrr I get Purim feeling yeah
I get a feeling like that every every every adar oh oh I get Purim feeling

oh adarrrr I get Purim feeling
I get a feeling like that every every every adar oh oh
I get Purim feeling, yeah

Queen Esther sings @katyperry's"the one that got away" (to Mordechai then to Haggai, then Achashverosh) #commentplease

Esther:
Shortly after exile when we first met
I missed my mom and father, cause they're both dead
Now it's my 16th Birthday
And the Persian king wants to choose

Used to hear that parents bicker
And yell at the youth
But we'd talk about our future
And the God of the Jews
Sometimes I planned that one day
I'd be marrying you

In another life
I would be your girl
Now you tell me to promise
I have to give you my word

In another life
You would make me stay
So i wouldn't have to say
I can't tell them my nation or my name
my nation or my name
---
[Esther now sings to Haggai]

I'm brand new and you are my Fashion Sense
Six months in myrrh and six months in scents
Thanks for all you do
And the favors you have shown (Whoa)

Someone said you gave me the choicest food
Set my bedding down in the best spot you could choose
It's time to meet his highness
I'l do what you say to do

But it's another life
I'm not really this girl
I've got to keep promises
Can't go against my word

It's a crazy life
I'll do all you say
Even though I prayed
I'd be the one that got away
The one that got away
The o-o-o-o-o-one [x3]
The one that got away

[Bridge:] <- in harem, to imagined Mordechai]
All these girls are dying to be the Queen (Nooooo)
I can't replace you with a million Kings (Nooooo)
I should've told you that you and I should flee (Whoa)
'Cause now I'm just his prize


[Sings to Achashverosh, flirty-shy]

Oh this royal life
I should be your girl
I'll fulfill all your wishes
Be us against the world

If I were your wife
you would want to stay
send everyone away
So I can turn your night into day

The one you ask to stay
The o-o-o-o-o-one [x3]

I could be your wife
If you want me today
all you have to say
Is I'm the one who gets to stay
The one who gets to stay

Esther/Achashverosh duet, to Gym Class Heroes: Gym Class Heroes: Get Your 'self' back home -

ahashverosh: Oh... Even half my kingdom!

Esther:
I don't care what needs undoing
But you're bringing those orders home
Signed under your seal, with the king's order and signature

this is your chance to save the Jews
I don't care what needs undoing
Just get those orders home

Achashverosh:
We both know this type of rule
Comes with rules not instructions
So I'm trying to do my best
Can't turn rule of king into a nothing
And sometimes it gets
Downright limited in fact
when I've signed and I sealed even I can't call an order back

On 13 day or 2nd week in the middle of adar there's a law I can't recall
I hung Haman's life on a tree and all his sons I also choked
I told you I would play along
That law has signature now this Sivan's almost gone
I'd apologize but I'm king and officially can't rescind my law as wrong


Esther:
I don't care what needs undoing
But you're bringing those orders home
Signed under your seal, with the king's order and signature

this is your chance to save the Jews
I don't care what needs undoing
Just get those orders home

Achashverosh:
And you been nothing but amazing
And have never taken the power I have granted
Half of my harem would have choosed to rule but you, you truly understand it
And even now you rule beside me
only out of and despite your selflessness
You deserve half my kingdom 'Cause I'd know you never lay claim over it

Let em know, let em know, let em know, let em know
That the Jews are prepared for all the slaying
Let em fight, let em fight, let em fight, let em fight
Jews won't lie down and keep praying

Cause you and I can order that
Just let enemies swallow that
Now they all choked up, what?Cause Jews be fighting back.


Esther:
I don't care what needs undoing
But you're bringing those orders home
Signed under your seal, with the king's order and signature

this is your chance to save the Jews
I don't care what needs undoing
Just get those orders home

Achashverosh:
No one orders me around like you do, Esther
You keep doing that, I'll keep ruling right
It'll be all right in Adar
Trust that
We'll put the Jew in Sanctuary yeh)
Let's go!

Esther:
I don't care what you order
As long as it gets done, no
I just care you're swearing
You'll give Jews protection

Esther:
I don't care what needs undoing
But you're bringing those orders home
Signed under your seal, with the king's order and signature

this is your chance to save the Jews
I don't care what needs undoing
Just get those orders home

Achashverosh:
It's done baby


==================
Last Party night as Sung by Ahashverosh


There's no Vashti in my bed,
There's a pounding in my head
goblets all over the room
purple linen off the spool
I'm dressed up like a czar
wife's dad conquered near & far
what happened to you know who?
Call my eunuchs or advisor dudes

pitchers used last night
were from the shrine
Of the Jews
they're swell

hundred plus ministers
but I'm pretty sure I ruled
Shushan!

Last Party night
Yeah we partied half a year nonstop
And each man called his own shots
Vashti might be dead but I forgot

Last Party night

Yeah we drank from captured mugs
And got sick on purple rugs
So we hit the marble hard

Last Party night
We were banqueting in my park
celebrating how great we are
Then ex-queen Vashti refused her part
Last Party night

Yeah I think I passed some laws
Always say men are to be on top-op
Whoa-oh-oah

This Party night
Do it all again
This Party night
but I need a special friend

Trying to refill Vashti's spot
she must know that I'm the boss
collect the women near and far
Haggai help me pick my star
She's got to look good in a dress
and pass my special test
My biography's gonna really sell
Ahashverosh's epic tale


pitchers used last night
were from the shrine
Of the Jews
they're swell

hundred plus ministers
but I'm pretty sure I ruled
Shushan!

==================
(still in progress ---)

Esther sings set fire to the rain as interior monologue

I heard my call, my heart,
And as a Jew I have to claim it
Times are dark and I sought cover
Until you reminded me and that saved me

My faith, it's strong
But my knees still feel too weak
It's time to take up arms
and if I'm lost, that fate's meant for me

But there's a side to me
That I never knew, never knew.
All the things you'd say
I thought were never true, never true,
And my name you say
It was always destined, always destined…

[Chorus:]

But I can't hide like my name,
Belle du jour, just a pretty face
Shushan will kill Jews will die
when they know my name, my name!

When I lived with you
I could feel safe, close my eyes
it's your Hadas, Mordechai
You and me are severed, Now I'm just Esther

'But there's a side to me
That I never knew, never knew.
All the things you'd say
I thought were never true, never true,
And my name you say
It was always destined, always destined..

[Chorus:]
But I'll set fire with my name,
Belle du jour now I save my race
Shushan will burns with my cries
if it hears me screaming out my name, my name!

I'll set fire with my name
And I'll burn away Amalek's stains and I know I might die
still I have to repair the last time, it's past time!

so it's time i walk to his door,
That part you taught me must be coming true
Even now when my life may be over
I know this is a part of being a Jew

[Chorus:]
But I set fire with my name,
Belle du jour now I save my race
Shushan burns with my cries
'cause it heard me screaming out my name, my name!

I set fire with my name,
And if Shushan burns, who's to blame?
Well if I have to die it's
As a Jew who's the heir of shaul benyamin, benyamin, oh, oh noooooo!

Let it burn
Oh oh ohhhh
Let him hang
Oh oh ohhhh
Let it burn
Oh oh ohhhh
