So who is setting this up?
Apr 7 2008, 06:17 PM
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?
Apr 8 2008, 07:49 AM
I'd love to get in on this. I can only make CDs, though, no longer have a CD/tape player.
Apr 8 2008, 03:03 PM
Do your thang Crazyoldcatlady. I'm sure you will hook it up nicely any way you think it should go down.
Apr 9 2008, 08:03 PM
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.
Apr 10 2008, 08:12 AM
I want in!
Let me know if you need my address and stuff and where I should send it.
Apr 19 2008, 03:41 PM
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?
Apr 20 2008, 11:14 AM
I would love to be in too, if it's not too late.
Apr 20 2008, 05:07 PM
I'm okay with waiting longer to see if more people are interested.
Apr 21 2008, 08:48 PM
I want in.
Apr 22 2008, 06:14 PM
is 4 a quorum? i say screw it and let's start 'cos i need me some drivin' fast music!
what say you?
Apr 22 2008, 10:38 PM
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.
Apr 24 2008, 06:34 PM
ah alright now we's rollin.
i have yeas from the following:
send me in a PM the following (if you haven't already):
-name or pseudonym
-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)
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?
Apr 27 2008, 05:27 PM
i got two PM's so far... bueler?
Apr 30 2008, 08:06 PM
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.
May 4 2008, 05:43 PM
pm's sent! happy swapping!
...& i think i'm just gonna keep it simple this time, no additional tricks or exchanges
May 5 2008, 01:23 PM

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!
Jun 26 2008, 07:27 PM
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.
Jul 2 2008, 12:50 PM
Hey Torch, your CDs are awesome! (I, too, am fascinated by the blending of the tracks).
I was out of state for a while, but now that I'm back I promise I'll get everyone's CDs out asap!
Jul 6 2008, 04:16 PM
finally, finally sent out your mix, mermaidgirl!
Jul 10 2008, 07:56 AM
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.
Jul 16 2008, 01:30 PM
My CDs are made! Now I just have to get to the post office...

Thanks for the CD Mermaidgirl, I enjoyed it.

Apr 22 2009, 12:30 PM
I was thinking about this thread the other day. I'd be into it.

Aug 3 2009, 07:32 PM
WHAAAAT a mixtape trading thread?! I AM SO IN. I'm new around here, what's the scoop?
Oct 26 2009, 10:31 AM
Nov 15 2009, 06:15 PM
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
Nov 16 2009, 11:47 AM
girl logic, you are mofu kick-ass cool. I llllllllloooooooooooovvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeeee this idea.
Nov 16 2009, 12:18 PM
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?
Nov 16 2009, 06:20 PM
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.
Nov 16 2009, 07:11 PM
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...
Nov 17 2009, 09:40 AM
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.
Nov 17 2009, 06:40 PM
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.
Nov 18 2009, 06:12 AM
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
Nov 20 2009, 06:05 PM
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.
