B&C CD Exchange

There were a couple positive responses in the random music talk thread on possibly starting this up again, so I thought maybe a separate thread would be a good idea. We used to do these once or twice a year here, essentially everyone who was interested would say they wanted in by a certain date, then someone would randomly pair people together, and those people would make mixes for each other. Some people on their own would make mixes for more than one person, or would send the mix they made to anyone who wanted it, etc. It was a pretty fun way to share music with other people here, and to come up with mixes, etc.

If we did another of these, who would be interested? Would you want to do it the same as the "old way" listed above, or do something different (such as share near and dear albums with the other person)? I'm open to any ideas, as I think there are a number of different things that could be quite a bit of fun. Let me know your thoughts.

We used to take everyone who signed up and then randomly pair people and have them create cd mixes and exchange them. Some people would make mixes for more than one person though. We could always do something different though (exchange albums we love, or something like that).

Whatcha think?

Isn't this sort of like the desert island game?

No, because someone says they would like somebody to make a C.D. for them. Then you volunteer to a make a C.D. for the one who asked. It's a little different than Desert Island becuase it's indiviualized based on what music people like. Also you can send the C.D. to them through the mail instead of mediafire or e-mail.

Good question, the tourist.

No, because it's not a competition.

Old school Interland stuff

I'm too busy and kind of out of the loop musically (never thought I'd say that) but to those who participate, have fun!

Okay. Here's my plan...

In the spirit of the musical exchange, you pick 3-5 artists that you feel others should know. You upload a CD length (80 minutes) playlist representing those artists. You listen to each playlist and see what you like. Hopefully you discover a new artist or rekindle a love of an old one.

I have a couple people interested in this already so we should go with this.

I'd be up for this, or any other CD exchange idea.

Now I like your idea Screwtype, but what happens when you've got an artist with only one or two albums out? Mayhap mix two artists together? I'm just wondering, this def. sounds fun

OneBlood, I forgot to give you those C.D.s, can I give you those (Blur, and Grammy's) and make you an 80 minute mix C.D.?

The number of songs for each artist would be up to you. If you want to use one song by an artist you can. You could even have half the playlist belong to one of your artists. The only rule is it has to be under 80 minutes and 3-5 artists. The rest is up to you.

I might be interested in this, depending on the timing of it.
