mixing and matching

once upon a time i used to be a part of an online group that sent mixed CDs to each other based on a monthly theme. the sad part about it is that participation started to fizzle down as people got busy. eventually there were only about 3 or 4 people making mixes for each other on any sort of regular basis who were probably also reasonably busy in their lives so the mixes received ended up being a little stagnant, sometimes people forgot to send them out, you know how it happens.

well, i was thinking of starting something like that up again myself. the group started off quite orgainzed and well structured, but as people got comfortable with each other the rules got relaxed.... so if this goes (and i hope it does, it's fun) i figure i'll just be a bastard about making sure the rules are followed and i'll be the prick when people aren't doing the right things.

SO, anyone think that's a good idear too? i figure if i can get enough interest in the next week or two maybe i'll get a Google Group going and lay down some ground rules. please post a comment or email me (welfarebum AT gmail DOT com) if you're interested.

rock on.

    I like the idea! However...

    With mp3 players (iPod or otherwise) being all the rage these days (even in the car), why not go for sharing playlists? It's a lot easier, too, and the simplicity of creating and sending them might keep people following "the rules".

    Just a thought.

    Love the idea. But it might be beyond my technological abilities and indeed levels of get-up-of-my-ass-and-do-it sort of thing. Hmm. And I reckon I've got shit taste in music.

    So what style music are you looking for? What are the guidelines? Do I just send my CD to one person, or does it go the whole group?

    Interesting idea, but I'm not ready to commit yet. :)
