This Month's Mixmania Is Upon Us, So Get Busy Mixing, Yo

Listening to: Television, Marquee Moon

We'll see how this flies...

Many of you are aware that I love making mix CDs - I offered a mix to the person who screen-captured my 10,000th page load - putting together an awesome collection of songs to put on a disk to play on a road trip or get a party jumping. I get the distinct feeling I'm not alone in this.

So what we're proposing (Mamacita is in cahoots with this) is that everyone who is like-minded with mix CDs, let me know, email or in comments, and we'll have until April 30 to make our mixes. Then, on May 1, I'll randomly pick names of everyone participating and assign who gets what. Meaning, you'll know who your mix is going to but you won't know who sent you a mix. Furthermore, you won't know what songs are on the disk because NO SONG LISTS get sent with the disks. After everyone gets their disks, we all post the song lists of the CDs we mixed so we'll be reading each other's blogs to see who the hell sent us that cool mix! If you don't have a blog, don't sweat it, I'll post your song list if you want to participate.

Sound complicated? It shouldn't, you're all bright, creative, beautiful beings. So let me know if you want to participate (and I'll be harping on this all month) either in the comments or email. Deadline is April 30 so GET BUSY!!!

PS - BusyMom, I haven't forgotten you, just haven't had the time to mail it out yet.

Ohhhh, I wanna play but I've got so much on my plate right now. This is a fabulous idea! Hoping it becomes a monthly endeavor so I can get on board next time around.

Hi! I found you via Jay (ZeroBoss). Congrats on winning the B4B competition.

I am a CD mixin' fool and would LOVE to play. Glad I discovered you. Now, excuse me while I poke around a bit.

Busy Mom said...

OK, but I've been standing outside by the mailbox in the rain all day.

Heathen said...

I wanna play!

Love, love, love this idea!

Betsy said...

Oh, I'm definitely, DEFINITELY in on this. Did mix CDs for blog readers as a holiday gift last year, really loved the experience of crafting something based on what I learned by reading their blogs...

i'm in! i'm learning to love ecleric music via my first-born, (who knows everything, don't you know.)

Tammy said...

Oh Man!

This is an awesome idea and I would love to play but my cd burner is shot and my new Dell is temporarily expected to ship the 18th. But like I really trust that...hmmph!

If you do it again I would love to join...

Though I might need your help learning how to blow away all the ID3 information...

Nino the Mindboggler said...

I have musicmatch jukebox and I highly recommend it. In MM you can edit ID3 tags:

I'm down. My mp3 collection is obscene.

Yes! Here I am! I'll mix it up with the best of them!

Wow, look at Panthergirl's pic. Cute! I'm going to right click that and put it on my blogger ID.

Nino the Mindboggler said...

She's definitely a hottie (although I wish she'd email me her snail mail - Jay, too!).

Grace, are you tying to double my pleasure?!? ;)

panthergirl said...

Hey wow...people are talking about me behind my blog here! ;)

The Management said...

I came through ZeroBoss, and I wanna hang, too! Sign me up!

seeingdouble said...

I wanna play!! Pick me! Pick me!! :)

chasmyn said...

Okay, so now we need some things answered:

Like how many songs per CD? These are I assume .wav files, so they can be played on regular CD players?

Shylah and I were wondering.

chasmyn said...

I'm so excited now, because I have mine finished!!! Woo! It took all day and I had to take out over half the songs (I got carried away) but I made a mix I am quite happy with. Listening to it now, in fact.

I'm too late to play...I'm in if you do this again!!
