    Hey Guys, the original got shut down because of inactivity. I put this one under Music so we don't run into the same problem...(I think only London Zoo posts close after 5 inactive days). Anyway, mine is almost done. Should be out within a day or two. It's just down to writing the playlist now. Despite my paltry knowledge of music, this has been a lot of fun for me and hopefully it will be enjoyable for the person who gets my cd too.

    Seems like we're all in the same boat at the moment.
    CD is burned and ready, I just have to figure out what to do w/ the design!

    I'm not sure if the person I sent mine to got theirs alright. I forgot to give them my e-mail to find out what they thought of it.

    Also, my CD will be sent on Friday.

    I finally got my comp fixed, so the mix is going out tomorrow. I'm a bit late, and I'm sorry for that. Didn't expect my comp to bitch out just before Christmas.

    I mailed mine out. . . the 17th of December or so? I couldn't think of anything clever to do, art wise, so thought the totally minimal look was best. Plain envelop, blank case, blank CD. Quite stark.

    The mix turned out quite good, in a rock n' alternate roll kind of way, and I'll post it here, or email it to whomever is interested, if the recipient doesn't mind? my email, for those who want the list is:

    I toyed with the idea of making a fancy cover and whatnot, but decided that I'd put off making and sending the damn thing quite long enough. FINALLY got it into the mail today, so (since it's going from Iowa to the UK) it'll probably arrive in about a week. I really should have included a track list, though, since I was really wishing for one with the disk I received! I think it'd be a keen and fun idea for all of us to post track lists here, just because I'm nosy as to what others chose :) Thoughts on that??

    Semi-random, @Phill_sea, I could NOT get in to the new Lady Gaga album, but teeth was a notable exception. That track is AWESOME.

    @dorkmuffin Is it just me, or if some of the lyrics of Teeth were changed could Tom Waits sing part of that song and do awesome at it?

    @Dorkmuffin : The Fame Monster is very reminiscent of early Lords of Acid ("Lust" in specific) which I grew up listening to, so I had that entryway --Alejandro, in particular makes me smirk. Also, I find myself enjoying "club songs" (like So Happy I could Die, and Telephone) a lot lately***. All that said, Teeth is definitely the standout track in my opinion, mainly because, as @oldhat ('ello thar) says, it could easily be done by Tom Waits. Also, Teeth's roots are the furthest from where the rest of the album seems to start, ie: it has gospel and southern and tribal-chant elements wound through it.

    ***These sorts of songs are depressingly missing from Timbaland's lackluster Shock value 2 which I've found almost entirely lacking the jump around and f**k energy of Shock Value, which is one of my favorite CD's from 2ish years ago. That disc had three(?) songs that got played regularly at bars and clubs everywhere. . . on this album, I don't hear anything close to that kind of power. . . /aside

    This sounds hella interesting. Will there be a second wave of this, do you think?
