Hello and Happy New Year, welcome to the next installment of the ETS Mix Exchange.

-Anyone that's interested posts in this thread.
-We decide on a theme
-The user creates a mix tape/disc revolving around that theme
-Everyone gets paired up and swaps/mails out their mixes! -Enjoy!

THEMES FOR CONSIDERATION
-Freedom - 1 vote
-Fantasy - 1 vote
-Space - 2 votes
-Secrets - 11 votes
-Bliss - 2 votes
- nominate a theme

THEME SET - SECRETS

THEMES ALREADY COVERED
-Travel -Senses
-Questions/Answers
-Love
-Crime
-Animals

Dah RULES
-Everyone that opts in will be assigned someone to send their mix to.
-Each mixer is to send a physical copy of their mix* (Optical or Flash Memory, no obnoxious formats please.) *If you're fanatically opposed to physical media, it's permissible to send a digital mix. However I'm sure it'd be appreciated if you sent something in lieu, like a card, poker chip, pygmy marmoset, whatever.
-Being part of a NIN community, there's no need to make them or other obvious artists (Nothing Records, etcetera) a part of you mix.
-If you fail to send your mix, you will not be included in future exchanges.

I'm IN! I'm also in to send my mix to someone who didn't get one the last time 'round.

And I vote for Fantasy.

This is an awesome idea, but I'm not articulate at all and struggle to match themes to songs.

Dra508

This is an awesome idea, but I'm not articulate at all and struggle to match themes to songs.
That's what you think, but the recipient of your mix might just hear a few songs that they had never heard before and vis versa. No perfection or judgement here, just sharing. And sharing is caring. Alright too much caffeine already. Lets us know if your in. Once we get an even amount of folks to sign up, I'll Make partners and PM each.

Part of the fun of this exchange is picking your songs based on the theme, the other is the tiny secret of who you receive from and if they include a small goodie from their next of the woods. I still have the cardboard pencil holder from the recruitment office of British Intelligence. ;)

Can I switch my vote to Secrets? I love that idea!

Dra508
01-14-2013, 02:31 PM
I can't think of a single song for the Secrets theme, but I'm a lemming - ya'll have my vote.

9 Dealers so far. Need a few more peeps.

botley
01-14-2013, 02:59 PM
I'm in again, let's do Secrets!

Rdm
01-17-2013, 01:27 PM
I really don't understand the theme secrets? Can someone give me an idea?

Elke
01-17-2013, 04:06 PM
I have a concept *secret smile*

Dra508
01-17-2013, 04:17 PM
BUMP - I'm giving this another day or two then we are just going to go with the 10 of us. New cliq!

Please PM me your contact info so I can pair you and PM you each with who you need to send to.

For those of you that have done this exchange before, let me know (if you recall) anyone on the current exchange is someone you have sent to before. I'll try to pair you up with someone new to you.

Dra508
01-22-2013, 02:35 PM
Hey biotches - get me your addresses so i can match youts up and get mixing!

darktemplar007

If you are still up for adding any, I'd be down for joining in on this.

Blackbookpress1984
01-24-2013, 12:27 PM
Im in, my vote goes for secrets

Dra508
01-24-2013, 07:46 PM
Im in, my vote goes for secrets


If you are still up for adding any, I'd be down for joining in on this.

With the two of you we'll have an even # of mix exchangers. Just PM me your contact info.

Now I think all I got left waiting for an address for is @botley (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=469) .

BTW - The Theme is most definitely going to be SECRETS.

I'll start matching and PMing folks with who they will sending to.

Geographically speaking, we've got fantastic diversity so we gotta give a little time for snail mail. - You have one month to dispatch your mix.

darktemplar007
01-28-2013, 09:38 PM

Dra508

Yes, you did send an address. I sent along to your anonymous mixer, who will then send you the most amazing interpretation of the theme. No pressure :P

Dra508
02-08-2013, 01:28 PM
Mix Masters:

Early I suggested February 24 as the day to have your mix in the mail. That's a Sunday and now that the US Post Office has stopped Saturday service, we'll just push this to Monday, February 25th.

Please post when you have sent (just don't say who you sent to), and when you have received.

Merci!

Damn, wish I could be a part of future mixes. This month probably would have been the only one I could have done but at the same time, first month at Ameri/FEMA corps, so it's been long tiring days! This sounds like an awesome theme!

Dra508
02-20-2013, 12:12 PM
I don't hear any mixing. Mail date is Monday.


I know what I'll be doing on Sunday. :P

orestes
02-20-2013, 07:50 PM
Mine's ready; just add little personal touches before I mail it out.

darktemplar007
02-21-2013, 05:30 PM
My mix is ready, just need to make it nifty. Should have it out sometime Monday, assuming no alien abductions take place.

Beef of the Sea
02-24-2013, 10:54 PM
Mine is ready to go as well, but just listening to it again now and I can't help but feel like I've missed the mark here.
The concept was great but I don't think my library was up to scratch, oh well, hope the recipient likes it at least!

Beef of the Sea

Sent my mix today, excuses aside, I've sent the mix via. courier so it should shoot across the pacific and arrive by next Thursday at the latest.

Dra508
03-02-2013, 05:19 PM
Hey hooo Mixers!
@botley (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=469) got his out and delivered first - to me!
The Who, Tom Waits, Rush (oh you Canadians), and The Chipmucks. Way cool. Thanks so much.

I'm burning my tonight to get on Monday. Yeah, yeah, I know - I'm late, but I'm including a couple trinkets for forgiveness.

Please post when you send and when you receive. I've updated the first post with exchange progress.

Elke
03-04-2013, 02:45 PM
Eh, I'm going to break Lent for this, but just to let my recipient know: it's taking a wee bit longer than I anticipated, but I hope it'll be worth it.

Dra508
03-04-2013, 03:38 PM
Breaking lent is turning off technology? You are not the first person to do that, but I personally don't get it. Rather then giving up, can't we just do something nice? - that's what my Dad always says and he's a big C Catholic.

I went to the post office this morning. Since my package is international and not completely flat (ok it's a thumb drive) I have to fill out a customs form - oh bullocks! Of course I had to get out of line which was 15 persons long with only 1 person behind the counter. FML. Tomorrow - I promise.

Funny thing, I would trade getting a piece in the mail. It's lie old school pen pal-ish.

liquidcalm

03-08-2013, 08:19 AM
So yeah... Got a 'return to sender' today. Then I realized I got the adress wrong. Ugh. I'll ship again this weekend, but since it's international I assume it'll take a bit. Am I allowed to upload the mix and send a private link to the recipient?

@Elke (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=767) - I think I recall seeing her post that she was giving up the interwebz for lent so here's hoping she mailed her mix out.
@Rdm (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=102) - Hello rdm, busy man, you got a mix? Send a mix? Hello hello

For the rest of youts - please post when you receive so I can close this out and go on vacation!

So I've received an awesome package from the UK. Haven't got the chance to digest it fully yet, but will do so in the coming holidays (starting friday). I've listened to the CD a couple times while working (preparing lessons for class [teaching]) and it's been great. You, who sent me the mix (you know, it's a secret...): Thanks a lot!! I'll leave further comments in the near future... as in... SOON. :)

Yes, I did! As stated above I've received it a couple weeks ago. Thanks a lot! Listened to it a couple times already - especially while working at home. Very chilling, nice selection. I will ripp this to mp3 soon, so I can listen to this while driving to work. Also, the whole thing was nicely packaged... in line with the theme and all. I appreciate your effort very much.

I know I was totally too late, so I can't officially participate in any upcoming rounds, but I WANT ONE and also I'll just make a mix for someone who didn't get one this time around. Okay?

Dra508
04-18-2013, 04:34 PM
Hey mixers, I'm away from my person computer until next week so I can't look at my spreadsheet as to who I matched up with who. I can only recall Rdm not sending a mix.

As for another I'd be happy to coordinate another one. Let's just close this shit out and do another next week. Sound good?

Dra508
05-29-2013, 02:51 PM

BANNED FROM THE MIX, HE IS!

I'll open a new thread.
