so when should I expect Issue II ;)
Wow, you're way too kind!! That comment made my day, Alias. You ought to be proud of your mix, too, Alias. I found myself liking quite a few of the cuts, stuff I never would have guessed I'd like. That Kaskade song stuck with me. And the packaging was pretty damn cool; did you do that thread by hand, or was that a sewing machine?

They give me something to read while I'm listening to the song, almost like mix CD liner notes. I tried doing that for a past mix, putting in some little-known fact about each song, but I just couldn't pull it all together. Nice to see it can be done.
Again, thanks!! It's cool to see it's appreciated. The folded 8.5x11 page was the only format that fit the images as large as I wanted to go. If I could have found a way to fit all that into a 4 3/4" square booklet, I would have.
And my CD/music collection, while larger than some, I'm guessing is also smaller than some of the folks' here. I've got around 1250 CDs, 300 LPs, 300 45's/7"ers, maybe 150 cassettes, and bits and pieces here and there as far as other formats (DVD-Audio, Super Audio CD, mp3, 8-track, radio station cartridge, reel-to-reel, etc.). My wife knew my music fanaticism when she married me, and still decided to marry me, strangely enough.
So far, I've gotten mixes from Alias, SlangKing, n8, steve-o, and (just today) Chris G and Chris D. Aside from the last two (which I haven't had a chance to listen to yet), I'm really digging all of them. With our local radio entertainment talk guys (Brandmeier and Dahl) in reruns this week, it's given me a lot of time to listen to all the mix CDs coming down the pike. I'd second the "Christmas came early" sentiments. And n8, I'm really surprised how many points of intersection yours and mine tastes are; I really found myself saying "Damn, that's good! I gotta check out more of that stuff" while listening to your disc. Great stuff, all of you!! Take a bow...
Looking forward to completing my collection of discs... :-)
