In the car, while doing homework, while walking, while working in the backroom (after management has left we're allowed to listen to music), while posting on interference. Overall I probably listen to 5-6 hours of music a day on average.

I hoard it for later. Especially for something where there's no competition involved, I can take my sweet time listening and enjoying.

How about if those of us who can only upload music upload it, and send our links out to everyone. And, if people wish to be nice, they can send an actual cd out to the people who really can't afford to buy blank cds and pay for postage/international postage? Kind of a hybrid sort of a deal?


This is similar to what I proposed. (At exactly the same time you posted this.)

I remember when 90 Minute tapes came out and it was a big deal because you could get an extra 15 mins per side...

i have no idea what a desert island playlist is. or i have an inkling, but take it too personally if someone votes my favorite songs off any kind of landmass. me personally, i've been living under some kind of semi-rock where only the music that i myself seek out gets through. i just wanted the quick and easy digest version of "what has u2popmofo been listening to since we last talked". you know, to obtain that without asking u2popmofo what the hell have you been up to in the last 2 years. knowing that guy, it's a shit ton of music.






edit: dammit, i quoted the wrong post.

I was still in school (or had just finished) we we first started doing these back in the day, so I really guess I am out of touch. Back then, I sent a cd to Europe and one to Asia, I don't think either cost me more than $5 US for postage.

Regardless, even the thread title for this was "CD Exchange" so I don't really understand the problem or complaints, hence my "strong" reply. To some extent, I suppose I do take offense to file sharing and illegal downloading, and I'm kinda lumping all of you who won't pay a buck or two to send a cd to your fellow "Interference buddies" as being the same types who probably don't pay for any of their music. Admittedly, this may not be the case at all, so I apologize if I'm wrong or out of line.

Like The Tourist mentioned, I am more than happy to send anyone and everyone one of the cd's I come up with, as you're all good peeps.

I can't even tell you how many cassette tapes I had in the 80s, taping stuff off radio once I finally had my own radio/cassette player boom box.

Always a challenge to try and catch the full version of a song, without the DJ nattering during the intro. Those unhelpful bastards!

Or forgetting what you'd already recorded and thus having "Election Day" by Arcadia on your tape 4 times.

I was kind of sad when I finally had to get rid of my tapes, since I no longer had a cassette deck.

Edit: and if it's what we end up doing, I'm more than happy to upload whatever CDs I make and receive.

Btw, I'd like to just go out on a limb and state this: I've paid for at least 70% of my music; someone in my family and/or band has paid for about another 20%. I've only downloaded about 10%.

I'm planning to stick them all on my iPod and listen this summer while I'm not around the internet as much and have more free time.

that one exchange was good times. wicked good times. and i was in school. you know, someone definintely sent me a tape because they didn't have a cd burner yet. and that was cool. and i still have this tape (i saw it the other day).



nah, wrong and out of line would be my gut reaction...something along the lines of well good for all you download-only folks, i really don't want to go through the polite formality of caring about what you listen to anyway.

YES fucking DJs!!!! I kept meticulous lists of what I'd recorded and what I was listening for on the radio. But you still never got the opening bars of the song while you were hitting record.

I still have mine somewhere, the few that I made and a couple that were made for us at camp by our counselors various years to represent what we'd been listening to as a bunk.

I've never really interacted with you on the forums, but you seem like a real stand-up kind of guy.

How many of the kids who are "poor" have a cell-phone they pay for?

I dunno. I think the download generation is shooting itself in the foot.

I most likely won't participate because, quite honestly, I get most of my new music from all you folks anyway. I doubt I have anything new to share.
