if i see someone uploads two cds, or even one cd of screamo music, i can choose to skip and move on. whereas with desert island, i HAD to download and listen, because otherwise it'd be unfair for me to vote in any rounds that person was involved in.
I see where Khan is coming from but I'd also really like to hear what tourist suggests, as I respect your taste in music but I think it's different from what I'm familiar with. However Like I said, I don't have that much time, and I don't want to skip you - so maybe you could do an 80 minute including a few from this 11-cd-band and then do a "booster" cd with more stuff that didn't make the a-list?

It is. And anyway, even though screwtape came up with the idea, as this is not a competition, I think "rules" are malleable. What I'm fearing with this whole thing is "Oh, I liked the three songs by this artist--can you please upload their entire discography? PLZTHXKBAI"

exactly. some genres i just know i'm not going to like. now if it's a band i'm just unfamiliar with, i'm not just going to go "lolz no downloads!" cuz that's missing the whole point of this of course. as long as their genre/influences/dick size sounds like it'd interest me, i'll download it

i don't even know if i'd participate other than downloading links.

I want us to stay with 80 minutes as the max. If someone likes what they hear you can send them more. We should keep it at 80 minutes so that everyone can listen to your artists. You should represent the artists with the best of their best. That's the point of the whole thing. A small introduction is the goal of this.

My compromise: 50 minutes of Starflyer (basically, one song per album), and 50 minutes of three other artists with a less broad catalogue of music.

Just tell them to stop being greedy and learn what torrents and MP3 blogs are.

No. You introduce them and they handle the rest. You can give them a longer mix CD if they ask for it but you won't be giving anyone the whole discography.

http://blogsearch.google.com/ is your friend. Just search for an album name and you'll likely find a link on someone's blog.

No. Stay with 80 minutes. Try 40 minutes for Starflyer and 40 minutes for the rest. You said Starflyer had three phases. Two songs per phase. There you go.

My artists of choice for the exchange:

Velvet Underground
Blur
Spoon

All of these have different sounds from album to album so it will be tricky.

omg thank you my isp has blocked torrents so i have to rely on a couple friends of mine when i want stuff. one of them even downloaded a torrent for me and sent it to me but i'm not an audiophile, i'd rather just get the straight links anyway rather than torrents. i don't care about lossless quality or anything, just as long as they're not imported at some god awful low quality or something.

I'd like a good intro to Velvet Underground.
