Torch
So who is setting this up?
crazyoldcatlady
i wouldn't have a problem organizing something, but i think we should do it different somehow. the "A gives to B, B gives to A" system is kinda played out. maybe something mor circuitous, more definite parameters?
mermaidgirl13
I'd love to get in on this. I can only make CDs, though, no longer have a CD/tape player.
Torch
Do your thang Crazyoldcatlady. I'm sure you will hook it up nicely any way you think it should go down.
crazyoldcatlady
okay, here goes. anyone who wants in, let me know in this thread by NEXT Wed. (4/16). One week. And I'mma gonna shake things up, so as soon as I figure the parameters, I'll come in and post.
mermaidgirl13
I want in!

Let me know if you need my address and stuff and where I should send it.
crazyoldcatlady
alright, so it's not exactly wednesday now, but acoording to the boards, there's only 3 ppl in on this one. you ladies still want a round, or wait a bit longer to see if anyone else wants in?
starshine
I would love to be in too, if it's not too late.
mermaidgirl13
I'm okay with waiting longer to see if more people are interested.
Torch
I want in.
crazyoldcatlady
is 4 a quorum? i say screw it and let's start 'cos i need me some drivin' fast music!

what say you?
faerietails2
ahh!!! ...can i still jump in? i've been working sick hours (while sick), so i totally forgot to send in my info to whoever's collecting.

yes? yes??
crazyoldcatlady
ah alright now we's rollin.

i have yeas from the following:
me.
faerietails.
torch.
mermaidgirl.
starshine.

send me in a PM the following (if you haven't already):

-name or pseudonym
-mailing address
-who you've swapped with before, and if want to swap with them again or branch out
-how many CD's you're willing to make
-theme desired, if any (i.e., music to work out to, etc)

ALSO,
if you ladies are open to this idea, just to mix it up:
make one additional CD based on some random messed-up consensus theme (i.e. "music to post to BUST to whilst eating cheetos and texting your ex-lover"), and surprise send it to a randomly designated participant.

yea/nay on the latter idea? got any other ideas?
crazyoldcatlady
i got two PM's so far... bueler?
crazyoldcatlady
thanks for the info, people, i'll start dolling out the contacts soon. one bustie has yet to get her info to me, but i'll hold off one more day. then i'll get the ball rolling.
crazyoldcatlady
pm's sent! happy swapping!


...& i think i'm just gonna keep it simple this time, no additional tricks or exchanges
mermaidgirl13
I'll probably make my mixes this coming weekend and mail them out next week. biggrin.gif

Later Ladies.
crazyoldcatlady
totally got clusterfucked this month, i haven't gotten my mix out - soon, i promise!
mermaidgirl13
Torch, I got the CDS in the mail - THANK YOU!

How do you run each track together? I need to learn how to do that, I like the way it sounds.

I haven't forgotten - will get a CD to each of you soon!
Torch
Enjoy Mermaidgirl. To blend the tracks into each other there are certain programs on the net where you can do this. I use a mixer myself, but that's not the only way you can make it happen.
faerietails
Hey Torch, your CDs are awesome! (I, too, am fascinated by the blending of the tracks). smile.gif

I was out of state for a while, but now that I'm back I promise I'll get everyone's CDs out asap!
crazyoldcatlady
finally, finally sent out your mix, mermaidgirl!
mermaidgirl13
I just got it yesterday! Thanks - it's terrific.

My TO DO list includes getting these mixes out to you guys by Monday. I'm so sorry I fell so far behind.

It's been so much fun getting the CDs in the mail.
mermaidgirl13
My CDs are made! Now I just have to get to the post office...
Torch
Thanks for the CD Mermaidgirl, I enjoyed it.
crazyoldcatlady

girl_logic
I was thinking about this thread the other day. I'd be into it.
lananans
I would definitely be into doing this again.
auralpoison
Huh. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? There's gotta be more than three of us!
Persiflager
I'd be up for it if people are willing to post to the UK.

girl_logic
Damn, y'all let's trade some music!
MadameHooch
WHAAAAT a mixtape trading thread?! I AM SO IN. I'm new around here, what's the scoop?
faerietails
my halloween mix
girl_logic
Since this swap cannot get off the ground despite AP's most valiant efforts how about this. I registered a profile for us bust loungies over at playlist.com. You can add tunes that you've got to share to the list, as long as they are in the site's files already.

Our user name is bustradio and our password is bustradio.
Go to the site playlist.com and key in the info above to log in and it should take you to our profile.

Our radio appears on the far right hand side of the screen (I think it's labeled "Featured Playlist"). You turn it on by clicking the > button there.

Got there okay?

To add songs, do a search. When you find the right tune click the + sign to add it to our list.

Hope that sounds straightforward, let me know if it's not, I know I sometimes talk in a too roundabout way.

The topmost limit for a playlist is 200 songs before you have to start erasing songs to fit more, so I've limited my first addition to 3 songs, by a group called Camera Obscura. They're very 90's and from Scotland. If you like them it's easy to find more on the site.

so, listen away, add away my pretties
koffeewitch
girl logic, you are mofu kick-ass cool. I llllllllloooooooooooovvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeeee this idea.
rogue
I love this idea too! So if I understand correctly by looking at the site, there is only one playlist that we can just add music to?
girl_logic
Well actually now that I'm looking at the details it looks like once you sign you, you can create multiple playlists, so you could sign in as "bustradio" and then create a "rogue's playlist" or a "koffeewitch's playlist" as well as adding songs to the group playlist.

crazyoldcatlady
i'll have to check this out. i made a kickass playlist on imeem this weekend, i'll see if i can re-create it here...


eta: i made one! good idea, g_l! i hope i did it right, can't wait to see the others...
girl_logic
I like the Morcheeba best COCL. I NEVER would have taken you for a trip hop, hip hop lover and I don't know why.
crazyoldcatlady
ahh it's the best! i love me some angry girl rock and early 90's grunge, too, but i really don't care what it is just as long as it gets my ear off. laugh.gif
nickclick
speaking of 90s girl rock, have you seen Carrie Brownstein's NPR blog? she's awesome. here's her post about how rock is what moves her most.
crazyoldcatlady
nice blog, nickclick.

this is a shameless bump for this thread b/c i'm rilly diggin' girl_logic's playlist online mixtape set up. i listen to music online pretty much any time i can (home and work), and i love new shit. (i always steal a peek at everyone's "what band currently excites you" because i'm a music whore).

it takes like 3 minutes to set up a playlist, so lurkers hop to it.
