    anyone interested in doing a RR mixtape secret santa thing?

    Yes, yes, before you rebuke me-- I'm well aware that I've bailed mid-comp-project in the past. I'm trying to get better.

    I'm thinking something where you make a mix for whomever you draw-- something that is tailored somewhat toward their tastes (based on their past posts) but also has enough of yr own personality in it that they'd have a reasonable chance to guess who you might be. Folks could specify whether they want hard copies mailed to them or just something they could download (and then Slosh could walk us through how to actually do that). I'd be willing to facilitate if there's any interest.

    ?

    LMAO! That was my very first reaction when I saw the subject line and who had posted it. You know us too well!

    It's an interesting idea, it just sounds like a lot of work and I'm not sure that I have the time to do it. If there's enough interest, I'll consider it.

    You can count me in, so that makes 3 of us (yawn).

    That went over like a lead balloon, but I think it's a great idea.
    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    If you say the word 'gullible' very slowly it sounds just like oranges.

    I'll get on it right after we finish that Lucksmiths comp.

    You know what that means Swish? I get to pick your name and send you a comp. Why don't I save myself the trouble and just forward you a set of coasters.

    Okay, here's what I'm going to do:

    I just set up an Elfter exchange to manage this. If you want to participate, sign up by the end of the month by creating an Elfster account and visiting this link:

    http://www.elfster.com/exchange/view/4159515/8cb2fc/

    I'll draw names December 1st. If only a handful of folks have signed up by then, we'll just call the whole thing off.

    we could post this over on the OT or FF forums (but absolutely NOT the cable or tweaks forums). Plenty of people elswhere, like Adam, John and George Michael, Sir Terrence The Terrier, Boobstyx, Audionoob, Heywood Djahblomie and others that might (might) have some decent music to share, if they haven't blown their budget on isolation cones and green markers.

    Be sure to degauss your CDs first, then freeze them, then use the green marker... in that order or it won't work.

    (do I really have to insert a 'winky' here?)

    Haha, I'll get right on it. I'll buy a case of green markers and empty the unimportant stuff, like food, out of my freezer.

    I think I'm gonna bring the axe down on this one for lack of interest. A couple of folks expressed mild interest but only noddin0ff actually signed up. For his time he's gonna get a mix made by me. Maybe we can try to do one all together next year?

    I didn't know, or wasn't paying attention. I'm in if anybody still wants to do this. Heck, I may just send some out anyhoot.
    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    I didn't know I was going to be the first & only to sign up! How embarrassing. I feel like I sneezed on the buffet table and now nobody wants to load up.

    Well, looks like I win something anyway. Prize for worst costume or not, I'm looking forward to a comp. Might finally be able to attach some sounds to the stream of unrecognized album covers showing up on the spinning thread.

    I've got my 2010 comp nearly ready and might pull off a bonus comp is some inspiration strikes. I'll go over here and hang it under the (gender neutral) mistletoe and see who's bold enough to step up.

    Fixed

    I intended to make a part II. Got more than enough material. Problem is I don't like very much of it.
