Monthly Mixtape Swap Group [23 Oct 2007|01:17pm]

I just wanted to post that I involved in a mixtape penpal group that is always open for people to join, as long as they have intrests in mixtapes and are dependable enough to meet a once a month deadline. Once a month, members get an email from me with someone elses address and a due date, and have before that date to make and mail them a tape. They end up getting a tape in the mail also from a different member. It is cassette tape only. If anyone is interested in signing up, please email me all4choice@hotmail.com

[ mood | bored (at work) ]

I'm making a mixtape simply titled, "I'd fight zombies for you." It's based on a painting that a friend of mine did, and it just conjured up a lot of amusing ideas in my head. So I'd like to see if I could make a mixtape of good zombie-fighting music. Whatever that may be. I know it's vague, but if I do it right, it could turn out pretty cool. I don't have any songs picked out yet, because I've been working on decorating the actual tape instead with his drawings.

I'm thinking a somewhat fast-paced, but I'm not into hardcore in any way/shape/form.

Your thoughts?

mixtape help: southern garage rock ... [22 Jun 2005|04:21pm]

[ mood | ronin king ]

All right. I am putting together a new mix tape and am hitting a snag.

Would you help me?

My idea is that it's southern garage rock. The kind of music that would come from a jukebox in the smelliest yet rockingest bar in Hazzard county. Here's what I go so far:

Prefuse 73 - Southerners (Interlude)
George Thorogood & The Destroyers - One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer
Heartless Bastards - New Resolution
Jimi Hendrix - Red House
The Walkmen - We've Been Had
The White Stripes - Instinct Blues
Lynyrd Skynyrd - Preacher's Daughter
Led Zeppelin - Black Dog
Black Mountain - Druganaut
Drive-By Truckers - The Three Great Alabama Icons
The Von Bondies - No Regrets
Neko Case - Outro With Bees
The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Hot Shot
ZZ Top - Waitin' For The Bus
The Black Keys - Stack Shot Billy
Dusty Springfield - Son of a Preacher Man
Eagles of Death Metal - Bad Dream Mama
AC/DC - Rock n Roll Ain't Noise Pollution

others on-deck: Queens Of The Stone Age's "Auto Pilot"; The Hold Steady's "This is How a Resurrection Really Feels"; The Burden Brothers' "Beautiful Night"; something by the Dirtbombs; something by the Black Motorcyle Club; something by Spoon; the Beatles' "Get Back" or "Come Together".

To the tune of... [19 Jun 2005|10:54pm]

My gosh it's been forever since I've posted here! Anyway - I have a situation. My friend and I are in an awkward situation. We're not mad at eachother or anything but she's really been upsetting me lately with some stuff she's done. Like dating a guy who she doesn't need to be with. He's using her for sex and other things and I try to tell her that she needs to end it with him but she just won't listen to me.
I need songs along the line of "hey he's not right/good for you" "you're my best friend and I love you to death but you're killing me" "i'm hating this" "i'll always be there for you" and any songs that relate. Any genre will do. Please help me with this. This is what I have so far -
Seventy times 7 by Brand New
My Best Friend by Weezer
Hannah Hold On by The Get Up Kids
It's Been Awhile by Staind
Until the Day I Die by Story of the Year
What we hate, we make by The Rocket Summer
You Fault by Plain White T's
Good Riddance by Green Day
How's it going to be by Third Eye Blind
Soco Amaretto Line - Brand New
Tribute - Tenacious D
Karate - Tenacious D
Bleed For You - Hidden in Plain View
Break Myself - Something Corporate
From California - The New Amsterdams
Science Fiction - Rufio

I have the two Tenacious D songs on there because we laugh our butts off when we listen to them so I figured I'd put some humor in it. Anyway - all help is appreciated and thank you SOOO much in advance!
x-posted like a mother.

Dear Annoyed Mixtape Exchange Livejournal User(s),

I understand that you are annoyed. But I find your attitude unappreciative and selfish.

I have spent a lot of time putting it together. I don't own a printer anymore, so I have spent $100 making ridiculous amounts of copies at Kinko's, buying shipping materials, CD's and cases. I was planning on adding a hardcover but that would have cost a fortune.

I am broke right now, and have taken on 2 jobs recently so-- I'm sorry! I really do not put this livejournal community on my priority list! While you had perhaps spent $5 to send me your submission (some, not even a penny) I have spent $10 each for 10 people. That does not include the international shipping costs.

And unless you have sent me items through snail mail, your package is delayed. I do not have your address. That is not my fault.

This community will be no longer. Leave all the bitchy comments you want, but don't be an asshole and post anonymously (you can't anyways). Send me an e-mail if you'd like to bitch at me in privacy.

To those of you who waited patiently...thank you.

Would you like to trade mixtapes with somebody with similar tastes?:
Absolutely, I habitually make casettes and am lacking partners to exchange them with. Similar tastes isn't a necessity, I always dig being exposed to new things. Unfortunately, the one form of music that I pathologically seem unable to appreciate - that form which falls under the indie/emo guitar+vocals rock umbrella - seems to be (according to my fleeting online glimpses) the default in the livejournal mixtape world. I would rather not exchange tapes within that genre - nothing personal, it's just that try though I might, I just can't get guitar rock to turn my crank. Anything else is totally kosher - I dig jazz, classical, sonic extremes, showtunes, international folk forms, country, all things unclassifiable, etc. Excited to communicate/trade!
