Neat, didn't realize that came from outside. (Ooo, that means there's two more discs coming!)

Really, it could have been any swapper. The password scheme was pretty obvious once you saw one of them.

Shit..if everyone got that it means I'm down to only receiving three of five mixes.

And I almost put !!! on mine! I'll have to check out more than a few of the tracks posted here.
posted by Plutor at 12:29 PM on April 30, 2007


"Please Enjoy" was right up my alley--I was just about to chastise some member of my set for not taking credit for it. Kudos, mystery mixer.

Spicynuts, I had tons of fun making that mix. Glad to hear it was appreciated! I'm going to declare our set officially awesome.

ludwig_van: I wanted to work at Tiny Telephone but he said they're overstaffed. :(

Based on the singing talent of the people working the merch table, I'm afraid I'm not talented enough to even pump his gas...
posted by 1f2frfbf at 12:39 PM on April 30, 2007


Please Enjoy was one of the best mixes I've ever gotten. Thank you!
posted by Brandon Blatcher at 1:00 PM on April 30, 2007


Hmm, did everyone get the SAME "Please Enjoy" mix?

Mine started with "Bonobo-Nothing Owed" and ended with "Spooky--Belong"
posted by Brandon Blatcher at 1:02 PM on April 30, 2007


Brandon, that matches mine. And yeah, it's an amazing mix. I bow to the buddha in it.

My Please Enjoy was broken in half, sadly.

This is exactly why I wanted to have a thread like this.
posted by spicynuts at 1:17 PM on April 30, 2007


Oddly enough, I titled my mix "Please Enjoy Responsibly" so when I got that CD I thought someone was messing with me.
posted by spicynuts at 1:19 PM on April 30, 2007


Is This Something I'd Need A Mixtape To Understand?

Title -- Show -- Artist/Composer

1 Main Theme -- Lost -- Michael Giacchino
2 Woke Up This Morning -- The Sopranos -- La Peste
3 Superman -- Scrubs -- Lazlo Bane
4 Cornholing -- Arrested Development -- The Cast
5 Six Feet Under Theme -- Six Feet Under -- Thomas Newman
6 We Used To Be Friends -- Veronica Mars -- The Dandy Warhols
7 California -- The OC -- Phantom Planet
8 Bad Reputation -- Freaks and Geeks -- Joan Jett
9 Stand -- Get A Life -- R.E.M.
10 Who Are You -- C.S.I. -- The Who
11 Harassment -- Arrested Development -- The Cast
12 Corona -- Jackass -- Minutemen
13 C'Mon C'Mon -- Rescue Me -- The Von Bondies
14 Boss Of Me -- Malcolm in the Middle -- They Might Be Giants
15 Mayonegg -- Arrested Development -- The Cast
16 The Tra La La Song -- The Banana Splits Adventure Hour -- Liz Phair
17 Macaroni Salad -- Arrested Development -- The Cast
18 Aqua Teen Hunger Force Theme -- Aqua Teen Hunger Force -- Schoolly D
19 Five O'Clock World -- The Drew Carey Show -- The Vogues
20 Falling -- Twin Peaks -- Julee Cruise

So, obviously, these songs are all theme songs to TV shows (with a few dialog snippets from “Arrested Development” thrown in). I chose the songs based on their merit as a song, though, not based on the show they represent. I know they are not the most obscure songs, nor are they the greatest songs in the history of music, but I went with the theme.

MetaFilter: [insert lyric here]

Hello - Anticon
Mr. Edison's Electric Chair - Ronny Elliott
No More LSD for Me - Larry Norman
Thanks for All The Aids - Akira The Don
Fuck Shit Up - Dub Narcotic
Kill Everyone - Alva
Playboy Japan (1971) - Yummy Fur
Cocaine Blues - Keith Richards
Cocksucker Blues - David Vandervelde
El Presidente - Drugstore
Death Threats - Throbbing Gristle
Sex (on My Trampoline) - MC Copulation
Reverend Black Grape - Black Grape
Too Much Sex (Too Little Jesus) - Drive-By Truckers
Diddle My Skittle - Peaches
Suicide is Painless - Lady & Bird
Death to Everyone - Bonnie "Prince" Billy

The original idea was to make a mix that would mirror the flow of a generic MetaFilter thread, but it quickly degenerated into a mix with as many offensive songs as I could put on without them being misogynic or homophobic (which cut out all the songs in the hey-gay-guy-I'm-not-gay-so-don't-touch-me-huh-yeah-so-buzz-off-huh-hey-I've-got-my-penis-inside-your-butt-how-do-you-like-that-huh-yeah-I'm-the-biggest-man-that-ever-manned-yeah genre such as DMX's Where the Hood At). Unfortunately, there were many great greatly offensive songs that I had to leave off because they just didn't fit onto the mix.
posted by Kattullus at 5:22 PM on April 30, 2007


Oh and... the name MetaFilter: [insert lyric here] came about because while listening to the mix I'd keep making that joke in my head and since I was making a mix for mefites, I figured I could just run with it. Examples include MetaFilter: Evil on the mic like Margaret Thatcher, MetaFilter: You do nothing but socialise and become a menace, MetaFilter: It makes hosing much more fun, MetaFilter: I didn't mean to hurt that kid, I just wanted to show him a little fun & MetaFilter: Where can I get my cock sucked?

Dang, my copy of the "Please Enjoy" mix arrived damaged too; I was only able to hear the first 4 tracks before what looked like water damage caused an inordinate amount of skipping. Thanks, mystery mixer! Um, can I get another copy? or does someone have the MP3's lying about?

I'd cut and paste my tracklist from my swapset, but I already made a web page with it: "A casual malice you can apply with the usual finesse." The mix was originally going to be ultra-menacing, but the flow was nasty so I scrapped that and settled for something more....adventuresome.
