Oh shit.

I just e-mailed the rest of the set members when I sent mine out. Didn't even think of the forums until now.

Yeah forumswhut? We Pavanites have been shaking the old email thing forever.

I suck. I'll send mine out tonight. I have the mix made. Just a matter of burning and mailing.

If anyone cares to listen to any of my mixes, i have a few on my virb page.

Gah!

Mine went out on Friday. Yeah, that's Brad Sucks on there. I don't apologize.

Mine went out Saturday.

Mine are going out late but will be super-sized. I emailed folks in my swapsets already.

I'm a slow-poke.





















And a jerk.

I mailed mine yesterday after I got back from a nine day trip. That's like almost early!

I'd like to start a MetaTalk thread next week where everyone can list their tracks for their mixes. I thought it would be a cool idea to for everyone involved to see what everyone else did. Anyone interested in that idea? I didn't want to do it now because part of what I like about the swap is the surprise of seeing what's on each disc as they come in and I don't want to ruin that for people.

And to stick to the topic, mine were mailed last week (swapset homophony). I received two so far: one from misteraitch and one from a user who did not identify him/herself.

Spicynuts, that would be cool.

agrees with that spicynuts. I am damn proud of mine. I have a theme and everything

Ok I'll give it a week.

I really tried to get them out yesterday. Why post office close at 5 o'clock, I will never know. They will go out today. In the future, I will suggest that the deadline be a Monday so that people can use the whole weekend.
posted by 23skidoo at 8:51 AM on April 24, 2007


There was also a weekend before the deadline.
posted by Plutor at 9:02 AM on April 24, 2007


You don't say! Well as long as weekends exist, I guess there's no sense in trying to minimize the number of late-senders my moving the last minute to a day when most people traditionally have off.

I sent mine yesterday. I've received 3 (in Swapset Forte). This was the second batch I'd cooked up as I lost the first set of CDs on a bus (along with $50 worth of library books... stupid stupid stupid... 20 years I've had library cards, so I guess it was about time I lost some books).

Huh, didn't even know about the forums.

I take it it's 100% too late to participate in this, eh?

umm I cannot remember my group name...anyone know who I am?

Huh, didn't even know about the forums.

Yeah, it's not exactly been a hive of activity. I think this might be related to the fact that it's only linked once from the 'Swapset' page and not mentioned anywhere else on the site.

The last time I participated, though, a few years back, it was the main place for discussing mixes and posting sent/received notices. I assumed the intention was for the same to be true this time.
posted by chrismear at 10:55 AM on April 24, 2007


Okay, I'm an asshole. Mix done. Must burn. I got a good mix from dogwalker and someone who didn't sign their mix, but it was very good.
posted by Bookhouse at 11:12 AM on April 24, 2007


You're in group Forte yodelingisfun, and I dug your mix.

No I'm not stalking you, just happened to be looking at the group right this instant to see who sent that mix...

Spicynuts, I gave yours to a whale in the Gowanus canal, to deliver in person -- have you heard from him yet?

Also, someone had "Puddle Splashers" by Cap'n Jazz on their mix. It deflated my precious belief that I was the only person that knew of the existence/awesomeness of that song.

Some day, I'll use this as a launching point to tell the story of the time the band I was in opened for another Tim Kinsella band.
posted by drezdn at 1:50 PM on April 24, 2007


yeah I have to say I loved the mixes this year, thanks!
posted by yodelingisfun at 1:50 PM on April 24, 2007


Sorry to ruin it further for you, drezdn, but Analphabetapolathology is one of the best albums ever.
posted by sneakin at 2:57 PM on April 24, 2007


Gavotte is representing pretty well. I've gotten 3 so far. I think I was the only person at the Post Office on Tax Day NOT sending something to the IRS.
posted by god hates math at 7:49 PM on April 24, 2007


I got one of mine a couple weeks ago. I will be sending mine out at some point... sorry swapset.

That was me. I'm a Kinsella fan... what can I say? Swapset Forte. I've received four. Just waiting on Kattullus, but now that's totally understood. Sorry you lost your stuff!

I sent mine out on the deadline, the 21st, and it appears that people have received it already. I haven't had any time to listen to the mixes yet, but I'm really exciiiiited.
posted by defenestration at 5:19 AM on April 25, 2007


What I forgot to include is that I almost put Letters And Packages by American Football on there too, but opted not to. I figured perhaps someone would think the Kinsellas were paying me for some obscure kind of promotion.

Anyway. Cap'n Jazz was great. And that's their best song.

Yeah I got it but unfortunately it was so covered in Gowanus slop that I couldn't play it. It's ok though cuz me and the whale scored an 8 ball and some Ukrainian whores and tore shit up. I think he may have had a bad reaction though..he told me he'd call and I haven't heard anything.

Sent out my mixes to Koto a week ago, but only emailed my swapset, as I didn't know about the forums.
posted by EarBucket at 9:24 AM on April 25, 2007


Yeah, I sent mine out awhile ago and couldn't figure out how to post a notice thing in the forum thing. I was just going to send an email but then I was detached from the interweb (and the world in general) for some time since then, and totally forgot. So everybody in intermezzo should've received mine by now.

And I got three yesterday, which I think is everybody who's sent them so far.
posted by dogwalker at 9:47 AM on April 25, 2007


Mine are mixed and burned, but not yet sent. I got stalled on the album art, but I think I'm just going to give up and get them sent sans-art.
posted by arcticwoman at 10:56 AM on April 25, 2007


Ooh! Ooh! I sent mine out a few weeks ago and have been waiiiiiting for this thread to show off my liner notes. I've only gotten one mix, though, but I eagerly await the other four.
posted by rhapsodie at 8:25 PM on April 25, 2007


didn't see that forum before - my two groups were handled via email.

I've sent out my mixes - which I am still learning how to do - ha ha test subjects!
posted by Julnyes at 9:23 PM on April 25, 2007


I didn't sign up for the swap this time around, did I? I remember thinking about it, but don't remember if I actually got around to signing up...
posted by litlnemo at 11:40 PM on April 25, 2007


Hmm, I've received six mixes. Swapset Forte. One with no return address. I guess I'll just consider myself lucky.
posted by defenestration at 11:10 AM on April 28, 2007


One with no return address.

Did this mix say "please enjoy"? Because I got that too, and I noticed people from several other swapsets had reported it as well.
posted by advil at 6:46 PM on April 28, 2007


I got the "Please Enjoy" CD too, in swapset Koto.
posted by EarBucket at 4:53 AM on April 29, 2007


I listend to the Please Enjoy set yesterday and it's quite good. The Angel themed one from Swapset Baroque is also great and those are the only two I've gotten so far.
posted by jessamyn (staff) at 7:35 AM on April 29, 2007


I got the "Please Enjoy" one as well (Baroque group), in a quite pretty envelope postmarked San Francisco. So who was it from?

Mine are in the mail to my baroque buddies as of today.
posted by goodnewsfortheinsane at 8:21 AM on May 1, 2007


so does anyone know who "Please Enjoy" is? I got a copy as well (Swapsets Pavane and Quadrivium)
posted by Julnyes at 9:18 PM on May 1, 2007


Do we still do that thing where we post our designs and tracklists? Mine is here.
posted by goodnewsfortheinsane at 8:41 PM on May 18, 2007


CDs are so last decade. Wouldn't it be cool if there was a private Metafilter torrent site? No transcodes!
