Anyone want to do a CD exchange?

I would totally do it. Being that I am international, perhaps others would not be so eager to participate with me. I may have a way around that though.

Basically we put people into a swap group and you make a mix CD for each person in your group and mail it to them and you receive their mix CDs in return!

I have participated in several of these and they were a GREAT way to hear new artists :)

do we need to mail the cd, tho'? isn't there some way that I can share my iTunes via computer?
uh, I have a lot of older stuff and don't know if anyone's interested in that. some collected for dancing (partner), too. Anyway, let me know if that's a problem! I am so into music!!

Hi hi. I participated in a couple over at the other place even though I'm Canadian and the universe didn't blow up. In fact, I can think of several Canadians who participated, and I think there may have been someone who wasn't Canadian -or- USA-ian. (haha, USA-ian!) Although, if I do get in on this one I may mail the stuff from the US (cuz I live in a border town) and have disks mailed to Nick's parents place in (fucking) Ohio.

Yes, my buds and I have been talking about doing this for a couple of months now. Sounds good.

Am I one of your buds? I know me and Bob were talking about it and that your name came up. Are we buddddddieeeeees? Am I an honourary bro? :fastdraq:

I'm in a border town too, so even though I live in Canada I can send the discs from the USPS, and have an address in Maine they can be sent to.

So - how do we go about this?

Ok, so we'll give it a few days to see if anyone else signs up and then we'll make the swap groups and go from there!

WOOT!

(btw, I can attest that one of my favorite CDs of all time came from the first CDX on the dash site. Princess Pottymouth sent me a CD with a ton of goooood Rockabilly and other good stuff and I am now OBSESSED with Tiger Army!)

We can let people sign up for the CD exchange until Monday, June 21 and go ahead and start putting people into groups after that!

Count me in. Music is my hobby. I have a huge collection and variety of music. I make cds all the time.

I especially love to blare my homemade stuff in my car on my long commute to work or one of my out and about journeys.

What is the limit for the number of people in a group? I would suggest 4 or 5 the most depending on how many participate in this.

My only reservation is exchanging addresses with folks I don't know. Not too sure if I like that idea. And no, I don't have a PO Box. However, if I know you from this website or another website, then that's cool, if not, that can be somewhat of a problem for me.

It may also cause a problem with folks who have had stalkers in the past and may go by different screen names, who may want to consider this cd exchange program. Not to sound paranoid, but I'm covering all ground and want to be sure there are no repercussions for anyone who may have experienced shit like this now, prior or possible future encounters.

Any suggestions Dusa?

You could use this like we do in the craft thread. One person has the addies and the individuals send their cds to the hub, with a few bucks for shipping, and then the one person has the addies and sends the cds to their proper homes. It would make more work for the one person, but it does cut down on who has your home info.

Hey Scorp,

I get your concern :)
Ive been in 3 other swaps and have never had any issues. I did sit one swap out because there was one person participating who I did not want to have any of my info and rather than ask to be in a different swap, I just sat it out.

Id be glad to receive CDs on your behalf and send them out to you if that would make you feel more comfortble :) Besides, if I put you in the same swapgroup as myself, the people making CDs can save on the cost of shipping by sending 2 CDs to the same address versus a separate shipping charge.

Lemme know!

I'l start compiling the list of folks and post back in a bit!

Reading Scorp's concerns made me think about a book swap I was part of on bee eff. Anyhow, when we exchanged books, we had names and address, but had no idea who they were unless we knew their screen names from being personal friends. The person in charge got our book lists and distributed names, addresses and what book(s) to ship that person. No one ever complained about privacy doing it that way. Perhaps the CDX could work the same way..........Wolfy who is not going to be part of it because I'm a computer idiot when it comes to stuff like making CD's I have to mix.

Just FYI - I can't recall how many of these I did over yonder but there was only one instance when someone contacted me and asked not to be in a particular person's swap set.

And in all of the other venues I've been involved in this it's never been an issue.

Hope that helps.

Really looking forward to this! I've got a U.S. post office box, so there won't be any extra charge to send to me. I think most everyone is in the States. No?

I'm wondering how to choose the music to send. I have a real mix in my collection, but if anybody absolutely hates classical, or C&W..... Or does that just make it too complicated?

Awaiting further instructions! :floatbee:

i've traded mixtapes/cd's for many years and there are a lot of ways to go about the mix

sometimes the group makes a list of criteria for each song like
1 - a song about sadness
2 - a band with at least 4 words in their name
ect

lots of people will make a general theme mix like
road trip 1997
songs of a broken heart
ect

i've been sent homemade demo tapes from garage bands

and there is also the snapshot of your music collection mix
that's just whatever songs you think everyone should hear
if that's classical and c/w then that's what it should be

to me the whole idea is you don't know what you will get
that's what makes it fun

Ok - Nows the time!!!

If you want in the swap, speak now or forever hold your peace! If you want out of the swap, speak now or you will be expected to actually DO the swap!

We will exchange 1 mix CD of any genre or mix of music that you prefer. In the past, people have made their own cover art, made more than one CD, or sent tiny little gifts with their CD - All of that is completely up to you, the only requirement is that you send 1 CD to each person in your swap.

I'll go ahead and get people into swap groups. I have these people. Again, if you want in or out, speak now!

Are we going to all swap our addresses?

Are we all going to send our addresses to a central person?

Are we going to have one central person per group to be the address-holder?



Are we going to have a theme (Love songs, hate songs, songs that make you happy, songs that make you wanna dance, road trip songs?), or is it mix-tape style?

Are we going to have a set genre of music?

Medusa
07-08-2010, 08:35 PM
We can do a couple of things with addresses:

In the last swap that Waldo did, Waldo had everyone send the address to her and then she sent out the swap groups and addresses. We can remove the screen names if people want and just use initials on the packages if people want but there will be times that people like me who live in Arkansas will still be easily identified.

Now, the other option is that ALL of you can mail your CDs to the PO Box for ButchFemmePlanet and *I* will repackage all of the CDs and mail them all back out to each of you. That would mean that nobody would have anyone's address. It would be cheaper for everyone because all of you would only have to mail one set of CDs instead of 3 or 4 different mailings.

Im totally willing to do that if folks would feel more comfortable.

I think that for this swap, we wont require a theme but I always like to do one myself and if folks want to do that, they are certainly welcome. :)

suebee
07-08-2010, 09:00 PM
Medusa, if you don't mind doing the work, sending them all to one address seems like the simplest idea. But I'll go along with whatever everyone decides.

Looking forward to the exchange. I'll be on vacation next week, but will most certainly get right to the task of compiling a play list when I get back.

One more question...

Do people who flake out and don't send CDs but get them from everyone else without an explanation get publicly moderated and/or spanked?


Just kidding.

Not really.

We can do a couple of things with addresses:

In the last swap that Waldo did, Waldo had everyone send the address to her and then she sent out the swap groups and addresses. We can remove the screen names if people want and just use initials on the packages if people want but there will be times that people like me who live in Arkansas will still be easily identified.

Now, the other option is that ALL of you can mail your CDs to the PO Box for ButchFemmePlanet and *I* will repackage all of the CDs and mail them all back out to each of you. That would mean that nobody would have anyone's address. It would be cheaper for everyone because all of you would only have to mail one set of CDs instead of 3 or 4 different mailings.

Im totally willing to do that if folks would feel more comfortable.

I think that for this swap, we wont require a theme but I always like to do one myself and if folks want to do that, they are certainly welcome. :)

What? You're gonna do this in Your spare time?

And nothing was said about sending money to whoever is gonna wrangle this thing. My suggestion ~ to keep costs down ~ would be to send the CD in a cardboard or lightweight plastic sleeve to make the package lighter in weight. And my other suggestion, since there are so many of us would be to send $8 each to help with postage....and if You can swing $10, even better.

So....now my questions are:

1. Medusa, are You sure You wanna do this?
2. When's the deadline?


I can't wait!

Orrrrrrr another option for what can be done is that each CD is put in a pre-stamped/paid for envelope that is ready to go and sealed, before it's put in the box sent to Medusa?

And, that way people who like to add in extras (I was thinking specifically glitter or whatever) with their music don't have to worry about it falling out during repackaging? And then all Medusa would then have to do is stick an address on it.

They also have paper sleeves! They're recyclable, y'all!

Please let me know if there are any questions. All CDs can be mailed to the address for the site which can be found in my profile under "About Me"
( I put it there to avoid millions of PMs and also the bots can't search my profile)


Make your CDs fun! Remember you do not have to do a fancy cover but people very much appreciate a song list, not just a blank CD with no explanation.

Please have your CDs (enough for everyone in your group) mailed to me no later than August 2. That gives us about 3 weeks to get our mixes made and mailed out! If for some reason you cannot complete this challenge, please let us know. There is nothing worse than waiting for a CD that never comes!

Thought I'd share with you some additional background on the CDX.

I don't know where the Swap or CD Exchange actually began but I started participating in one around 2001 or so. It was awesome to come home from a long day of work and pop in a CD from a total stranger and find something new and interesting. I still have one of those original discs somewhere. More importantly, I still listen to a lot of that music today. Here are a few of the FAQs and Guidelines I'd put together previously. Hope they help answer some of your questions and alleviate some of your fears.

FAQs/Guidelines:

Is this legal?
This is in no way intended to run afoul of the RIAA. We are not file sharing or anything of the sort. Think of this as a modern day "Mix Tape" for friends. and arguably falls under fair use provisions.

What if I hate the mix somebody made?
Turn it off. Seriously. Not everyone has the same tastes in music and what sounds great to you may sound like racoons mating to someone else. There is really no reason to mock somebody because you disagree with their musical sensibilities. Be respectful, play nice and don’t poke out any eyes.

How should I send my mixes?
Within the US, Media Mail is probably your best, cheapest option. Internationally, you should speak to your local post office to get an idea on the best solution.

How should I package my mixes for post?
Please pack them carefully. Few things are more disappointing than receiving a broken gift. A bubble envelope is ideal. Most parcel or drug stores will offer envelopes specifically designed for CDs.

I’ve never made a mix before. What do I do?
There are no real rules to making mixes, but if you feel the need for guidelines, you might try reading some postings at a site like Art of the Mix (http://www.artofthemix.org/index.aspx). I recommend reading their suggestions and then flushing them from your brain. Just make something you would want to listen to.

Okay, but how do I actually make the CD?
As far as technical requirements, you will need a computer with a CD Burner and burning software such as Toast, iTunes or Easy CD Creator. This isn't really the space for learning how to burn CDs so if you need help, Google is your friend.

What kind of music should I use?
The goal of this project is for you to share interesting music with random people. Ideally you should veer away from music so popular that it is likely to be familiar to most people. But again, these are not rules, they are guidelines, so nobody will stop you for sending out the usual suspects (McLachlan, Amos, Indigo Girls, etc.) should you so desire. And even if your tastes are quite mainstream you can still surprise people with obscure tracks from popular artists.

Some of the most successful mixes have a theme, be it stylistic, topical or esoteric. It is a useful crutch upon which to lay the foundation of a successful project. It should probably not be too specific though so you don't get locked into a theme where there are too few songs to choose from.

It's also helpful to include a track list with artist information. If you're feeling creative you can go all out and create cover too. Be as expressive as you'd like.

What format should the CD be?
Your mix should be a normal CD, playable in any CD player.

my first trade was way back - 1989
one person actually sent my mixtape back with a 3 page letter
front, back, college ruled and in blue and black ink
all about their hatred of a bullet lavolta song i included in the mix

to tell the truth - that made my last 2 decades
but i'm weird like that

that trade also landed me what would become one of my all time favorite albums

so like the cheerleaders say - bring it

* Your team will change every time we do a swap. The next swap will probably be after the Reunion. At that point, I'll post a thread for the CDX-2 and start asking people for participation. We'll then do what we did this time and assign teams and put in a deadline :)

Yes, but it's also unfair to the participants who put their own lives on hold to do this really beautiful thing for others when people flake out and are lame about it.

If you just bail without offering any kind of explanation (sorry guys, I'm going to be late, my pet/child/partner/parent got sick/moved/ate my homework) then I think it's completely appropriate to call them out. It's one thing if life gets in the way--we allll have that happen, but to let it get in the way without any kind of "I'm still here, I'm still invested" is not okay with me.

Selfishness is one of my hot button things, though, and I fully expect that everyone will make and send beautiful mixes of bitchin music http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:C9UAwIs6Mt2z8M:http://repairstemcell.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/heart2.jpg

Hey SD! It would be ideal to me if people have their CDs unpackaged so that I can combine all of the CDs into one envelope for each person. If you want to send some $ to cover shipping, I will gladly accept whatever you think will cover the costs.

OR

If you prefer, you can pre-stamp your envelope. The only thing is to remember that different zip codes cost different amounts so adding a little extra to cover wherever it goes might be good since people dont know where their CDs are going

I am going to preface this with saying again that my CD's on other websites have always been on time and will be this time, however, my ONLY reservation in participating is the whining and bitching from some people who don't receive their CD's and the public calling out. I HATE it.

Some people are shy, proud, or have issues they don't want to discuss with us and it upsets me personally deeply when we focus on what we can receive rather than what we can give with love, expecting nothing in return.

It makes it ugly for me and I suspect several others of us idealists. :)

I would like to see us all be thankful for what we get and leave it at that.

If you don't receive a CD from your group members maybe drop a PM to me or to someone who has asked if they can send to everyone and give them your address. :) That way you get CDs and no one is embarrassed or feels stress or pressure.

I would be happy to send all the CD's you want in whatever style you want. :) But please, let's not call anyone out.

Please.

I am going to preface this with saying again that my CD's on other websites have always been on time and will be this time, however, my ONLY reservation in participating is the whining and bitching from some people who don't receive their CD's and the public calling out. I HATE it.

Some people are shy, proud, or have issues they don't want to discuss with us and it upsets me personally deeply when we focus on what we can receive rather than what we can give with love, expecting nothing in return.

It makes it ugly for me and I suspect several others of us idealists. :)

I would like to see us all be thankful for what we get and leave it at that.

If you don't receive a CD from your group members maybe drop a PM to me or to someone who has asked if they can send to everyone and give them your address. :) That way you get CDs and no one is embarrassed or feels stress or pressure.

I would be happy to send all the CD's you want in whatever style you want. :) But please, let's not call anyone out.

Please.

Here's the thing that's bothering ME now.

My post--made completely in jest--is being made into an accusation that I'm going to call people out and be really ugly if ~*I don't get what I want*~

It's not about that.

I don't care who sends what out, or who doesn't.

It's not about that, for me. It's all about the music. I share music because I love music, not because I want to cause division.

It feels like I'm getting called out for being pre-emptively mean, and I don't want that to taint the spirit in which this swap was designed. So, on that note, I am politely and respectfully withdrawing from the swap now with no ill feelings towards any of the participants.

That was not my intention at all, in fact in my first post I said I know you are playing here, so that people would think about what I said and that I was just using your post as a jumping off point since you mentioned it ....playing.

It just always happens and it is my least favorite part.

"S, I am merely using your post as a jumping off point, I know you were just playing! Grin!" is what was in my first post.

I am so sorry that you feel attacked, that was not my intention at all. I don't think the people who come in fussing about their CD's not arriving are mean, just maybe they have not thought through all the ramifications of calling people out about it.

Again, I tried to make clear I was not slamming you or saying you are mean, sorry my little note at the end was not clear enough.

I completely agree that it is all about the music and was trying to say that, but appear to have not done a good job of that.

Burned DVRs will not play on all on all DVR players...some are DVR+ some are DVR- , some are both...and they wont play in CD players.

For people who don't have a DVD player in their computer and are not tech savvy, it might be more difficult and inaccessible.

The cd's had to go out today cuz Dallas was jammed packed with too much to do...(they traveled with me all the way there and all the way back)...good practice for the trip they are going on from BFPhome to their new home...

(I forgot how long a drive that was...and it was really hard on my body...thankfully nothing a long hot bath and a good nights rest couldn't fix!)

Also, I couldn't decide on just a few, so I decided to make a set of 2. I didn't do any graphics or any playlists because it seems I can't figure out how to do those. (!) So I guess they will just be a surprise or you can just put the dics on scan and catch the intro...oh well, it just worked out that way.

Please forgive me for the delay, Medusa and all the recipients. I truly am sorry that I missed the deadline. But I hope they are worth the wait, and that you enjoy them. I know I have (enjoyed each song on them at one time or another).

Love that place.

Oh, and if it's all right with you...we should like you guy to do the
honors of putting our raffle tickets on whatever item you wanna

I LOVE new music!!!

Organic and I saw Diva's cds and we're stoked about participating at a later date. Our burning aparatus...aparati?...is being a bit hateful right now, so we have to beat it up a little bit, but after that, we're SO in!

Sue, I loved your artwork too! I can't wait until we're up and functional and we can send you all our music! :)
