Here, I take a 10 second clip from "Whole Lotta Love", 133 seconds
into the song, where Plant is orgasmily screaming and Page's guitar is
doing the same. Then I increase the volume by a factor of 4. I then
reencode the wav as ALARM.mp3 and use it as the alarm sound for my egg
timer program.

FILE=~/Music/led_zeppelin/Led_Zepplin_-_BS_CD1_01_whole_lotta_love.mp3
lame --decode $FILE file.wav
sox file.wav trim.wav trim 133 10 vol 4
lame trim.wav ALARM.mp3
rm trim.wav file.wav
mv ALARM.mp3 ~/Music/

#!/bin/sh
# EGG TIMER.  #DTPD#
# ${HOME}/bin/timer
MINUTES=$1
echo ${MINUTES}:00
for M in $(seq -w $(($MINUTES - 1)) -1 0); do
    for S in $(seq -w 55 -5 0); do
	sleep 5 ; echo ${M}:${S}
    done
done
echo -e "\n\n\t\tALARM! ALARM! ALARM!\n\n"
exec mplayer ~/Music/ALARM.mp3 &> /dev/null
