I have been lazy, so it's been awhile since I did one of these but it's once again to send music to strangers and in return get music from strangers. That's right! For the price of a blank CD and some postage, you can get some horrible noise that will never leave your brain new, wonderful music that you otherwise might have never heard of. How does it all work? It's simple! Just provide me with some information and in about two weeks I'll give you a goon you'll send music to and who (in theory) will send music back to you. It's just that easy!

Sign ups are over! Here are your partners!

To explain what's listed is the persons name, what page their original post where you can find their phone number is located and what country you will be sending a CD to. So find your name and get to it!

If I made any mistakes, let me know and I'll do my best to fix it.

Here's some stuff copy pasted from the last thread that would be pointless for me to retype:

There is no rule for what you put on the CDs. It is preferred that you try and put lesser known artists or lesser known songs by well known artists but there's also not a thing in the world that can happen to you don't. Still, keep in mind that part of the point of this is to get your musical horizons expanded. Also, you can send file CDs, or memory stick or whatever if you want BUT you need to have at least one audio CD as well. I will say that getting a CD full of sound files just isn't the same as getting a finely crafted mix though.

Try and make sure your mix is mostly listenable to the average person. I'm not saying you can't put some horrible anime themes or unlistenable noise metal on your CD if you really want, but try and balance it out a bit. Still, as I said, if you ignore this, there's not a drat thing anyone can do about it.

You can send someone as many mixes as you want, but just expect one CD in return. That's all that's required. Don't feel mad because you sent someone five mixes and you only got one back. Also people tend to send the same mixes to all their partners. Don't get mad because you didn't get your own special unique snowflake mix.

Nice CD art is encouraged but not required. All you need to provide is a CD and track listing (and for the love of god make sure it's readable). After that, it's all up to you.

Just to reiterate, I added the review option so people who write reviews of the CDs get reviews back. Please, only opt for the review option if you are sure you're willing to write one. It's only fair. Hopefully toxxing will help with this but I know not everyone is gonna do this and people that don't should still get reviews!

You can also post about your own mixes when you send them out, but try to wait for your partner to get them first. In general try not to post about what you're putting in your mixes until they've gone out. It's always better if it's a surprise. On that note, don't request people send you/avoid sending you a particular genre of music. The point of this is to expand you're musical horizons. You might think you hate all metal/rap/country/polka/tuvan throat singing but maybe in some mix someone will send you a song that changes everything. Even if that doesn't happen, don't post about what music you'd like/wouldn't like to receive because we just don't care.

If you need good burning software, I recommend CDBurner XP. It's free and works better than almost anything else I've seen.

I think that covers everything. If I left anything out, just tell me and I'll update the OP. If you have any question, I or someone else will do our best to answer you. If you have any special requests, tell me and I'll do my best to accommodate you. So until then submit your information, discuss the fine art of mix making and maybe even throw in some late reviews that you forgot to put up in the last thread.

Thanks as always for all your work organizing these swaps, Axleblaze! I've participated in a few of these now, and they've been a lot of fun.

Whether you want to : NEW FEATURE! I am now giving people the option to themselves. If you you must do reviews and you must choose international. If you choose this option you will only be matched with other people that have toxxed, which pretty much means you will get a CD and a review of your CDs or that person will face consequences. I know this is a bit extreme and really there is no shame in not picking this. This is for people that really want to make sure that their partner doesn't bail on them.


No, you aren't giving people this option. We're not going to enforce bans just because you want people to mail CDs.

I think the point is that toxxing yourself has always been an option. Just because axleblaze didn't mention it until now doesn't mean you couldn't do it before.

To be honest, by this point, I've just learned to expect getting stiffed. That's why I usually request the maximum amount of partners, since there's always a possibility of someone disappearing or having some kind of emergency that prevents them from participating.

I won't be able to participate this time around, sad to say. I wanted to pop in and apologize to my partners from the last round, though, for not reviewing your mixes. My laptop gave up the ghost over the summer, I forgot your screennames since then, and I don't even know where the physical mix CDs even are anymore. Sorry to be such a wash-up, y'all. Hope you have fun this swap!

I will totally do international if international will do me back. I will review CD's and scan the art and all that loveliness. I must confess there is still one that I haven't done from CD Swap 15. I still feel bad, but have since lost the CD. I am sure that person hates me.

If you want to swap more than one cd, let me know and I can send a couple. I am trying new and inventive ways to offer new themes. I will admit they all sound good in my head, but I have been educated that sometimes these ideas are complete poo poo. That said, I am optimistic that most of my mixes are not complete poo poo. I will make a promise to not put Limp Bizkit on anything. Ever.

Anywhere from a few bucks to 10 or 15 bucks depending on where to and how you ship it. Going through the USPS for me has never been too expensive.
