Mix Tape Exchange

Post by n8 » Tue Sep 13, 2005 7:17 pm

I know many of these have taken place in the past on GloNo, but I thought I'd maybe start another one up.

Don't know how it was done before, so I'm open to suggestions, but here's my idea:

We get a group of people who want to participate (with a limit of like 10?) get all of our names/addresses together, and then everyone sends everyone else one copy of their mix (CD). I personally am not thinking anything fancy - just a kickass mix with a printed out tracklist.

In order to prevent people from lagging and others from waiting, no one should send their CDs out until everyone else has confirmed that they're done with their mix and have made the CDs and everything.

So umm, anyone down?

Sign me up and let me know to whom I should send my relevant information. In the past, we've done sort of a mystery gift thing where the organizer takes the names of participants and hooks folks up, so you end up sending out one mix unless others request what you've sent. I can certainly do 10 or so if needed, but the other method was kind of fun where you didn't know what you were getting or from whom. Either way, I'm in.

Finally got a stable CD burner, and a little extra time, so sign me up.
Do you want to organize this, n8? I would be willing to volunteer some time to match addresses if necessary.

Well I guess the question is - does everyone want to send 1 CD out to everyone, and thus everyone gets to hear eveyone else's, or should we just randomly match people up, so that everyone sends and receives one CD?

Normally the Glono-ers PM the Mix Tape Administrator (or whatever they're called) their addresses, and they are matched up randomly. That way everyone only has to burn one CD.

That's what I understand. But a part of me thinks it would be cool to recieve like 10 mix CDs. The cost of making and shipping 10 CDs is maybe what - $10 tops? For $10 we would each get 10 personally made mix CDs from 10 knowledgable music lovers.
