    AudioBill Aid - Care package list

    I'm gathering a decent number of cds to send to our good friend Bill and his family since they're stuck in a Motel 6 (or could it be a Ritz Carlton? They do have lots of class) due to the water damage in their home. So we're not redundant, I thought it best that we maybe start a little thread to list the tunes we're sending him and to see what kind of crap he's going to be subjected to in our packages. My list includes;

    Pinback - Autumn of the Seraphs
    Shearwater - Palo Santo
    Augie March - Moo You Blood Choir
    Spoon - A Series of Sneaks (possibly my favorite of the many great Spoon records)
    British Sea Power - Do You Like Rock Music
    The National - Boxer
    Midlake - The Trials of Van Occupanther
    WXPN - Live at the World Cafe Volume 25
    Swish's Big Indie Comp - 20 stellar tunes from all over the map

    Anybody else got their package ready to ship?

    Swish
    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    I just let Bill know mine will go out after vacation next week. I doubt my selections will overlap any of yours or others choices.

    Mine's already packaged and ready for flight later this afternoon. I think we've already become redundant on the British Sea Power,but other than that everything looks good. Of course the one I did has that Stick's jazz and World flavor so I doubt any other replication will take place...but somebody needs to include "Songs:Ohia".

    I can contribute a double disc Black Sabbath comp (came out like 5 years ago) called The Best Of Black Sabbath (import) I'm an album collector and I just don't listen to 'best ofs'.

    I also have an AC/DC Dirty Deeds remastered CD that is redundant in my collection.

    I have a Bob Dylan comp of a bunch early demos and rareties called No Direction Home: The Soundtrack. I got it as a birthday gift and I've never listened to it (not much of a Dylan fan).

    I'll go through and take a closer look. There have been some incredible deals on Amazon of late.

    I need an addy.

    BTW: AudioBill's PMs are full and cannot accept anymore.

    Bill sent me a PM to let me know that he is still getting mail at his house. If you have his address, you can send stuff there and he'll get it. If you need his address, send me a PM...since his mailbox is full.

    Good question, I could create many disks full of MP3s.

    Mine actually went out Wednesday morning and I hope..

    ...he has them within a week or so. I used the first class method, but going to Canada isn't the same as withing the states.

    I was having trouble ripping certain cds using my PC and Nero software, then I remembered my Dell laptop has a burner (it's a refurb from Dell Outlet that I bought about 3 months ago) that I hadn't used, so I fired it up and had the other ripped in no time with the Roxio software. I think my player on the PC is the culprit, but I'll have to pull it and try to clean it before I can say for sure. I know a lot of cds skip on playback, so perhaps the laser is dirty.

    I thought you were messing with me...like Bobsticks or some other nut-bucket. Check your PM. I guess I'll try to stay open-minded, but our tastes are pretty far apart. Like that's a stretch.

    Evidently I m the only "nutbucket" with enough endurance to engage in any longterm x'ian-yan-king...and it's not surprising that your preferences would diverge form those of any tasteful, artistic person...hehehe

    I am glad to see so many jumping on the audiobill cause.

    Oh man, have you heard some of the stuff he likes? The guy knows how to take a picture, but his musical tastes are quite another subject.

    A good many dramatic situations begin with screaming

    Was that a Zither in "You Gotta Taste All The Fruit"?

    Undoubtedly the holiday's frivolity led to a very real dissolution of synaptic fluid...my acoustic ganglion was shark bit daddy-o...but I needed this just to get right.

    But, jes mang, I cang deal wid it...though I don't think that the in-the-know shopper shops dowtown. But who cares, all them cleaned and scrubbed and well-coifed priivates are where it's at. Might as well get some before the frogs come.

    ...in a hotel. I remember he mentioned that in an earlier post. I know he's a teacher and has the summer off, and perhaps they're away on vacation or something. I know I'd want to get the heck out of that hotel for a week or so if I were in his shoes!
