    Thanks again Mr. Steevo: You've made my week at minimum and from the first listen introduced me to at least one new band I'm going to hunt down!

    Steevo I think you've won this round.

    Jared, I bet there will be another project like this in the near future. Dorkmuffin ran the first one and I'm "running" this one.

    I still haven't worked out who I'm sending my mix to. ^^; I finished the mix a few weeks back, but when I was sending out the pairs it broke because of international shipping requirements; so I didn't work out who I'm sending my disk to.

    @MisplacedMind : hopefully there's some new and likable music on the disc? It's pretty random, but from your mix list (ie: Amanda Palmer, and knowing wolf parade already) I suspect it's pretty up your alley. ?

    Mix should be winging its way across the Atlantic by now. Sorry for the lack of exciting packaging/decoration. Does "I was trying to keep the weight and postage down" work as an excuse? Erm, I thought not.

    Mine was sent on Saturday. To the recipient, sorry for the lateness and the fairly mediocre cover (that was drawn in 90 seconds before the last post). But i´m sure that you´re going to love the mix. I´ll post it on 8tracks later this week.

    I will be sending mine off tomorrow morning. Got quite behind. Thankfully I haven't received one yet, so I don't feel as super guilty.
