yeah, was there a song on there called like, don't tread on me! .. hahah! a far cry from MASTER OF PUPPETS!.. or garage days

i can't handle james hetfield. actually i can't handle any of them. i much preferred ANTHRAX, MERCYFUL FATE, samhain, etc.. not really in the time frame, but KINDA.

nothing good to say about SPOONMAN huh! if i start thinking too closely about spoonman it enters my head, a faint piercing howl, and the lyrics..spoonman.. come together with your handdssss...and then i want to die, die, die.

haha...  every so often i get on a kill 'em all kick.  i gave away my lp years ago but have found some live/demo stuff on the net.  it still sounds pretty great.  cliff burton was a monster.  

i saw anthrax about a dozen times.  bailed when among the living came out.  indians is on there, right?  ughh.  pretty bad.  fistful of metal, armed & dangerous, spreading the disease were awesome.

mercyful fate & king diamond will always have a spot in my heart.  many nights spent walking around the old neighborhood w/ mellisa or don't break the oath playin' through my walkman.  

hate to sound o-o-o-ld but these 3 bands were pretty revolutionary way back when.  kinda lucked out living so close to megaforce records' little space in the local flea market & was able to to get in on the *new* metal tip way early.

i think it was like 87 i gave almost all of my *metal* lps to a friend.  i think the only regrets are that the milk crates contained a few trouble albums.  grrr...  these days i think i'd like to listen to them again.  oh, well.  i saw the skull for sale on e-bay recently.  $10 nostaligia for the length of 2 lp sides seems reasonable, right?

anywho...

I think we tried that once, and it only kind of worked out?  Maybe.  I don't remember.

I'm working on one for my mum... it's tentatively entitled "Music For Gardens With Hens In" and it's got to have songs with garden stuff, hens or, um, references to Meatloaf.

So far, I'm at:

'Darla' - Why?
'Terrible Angels' - CocoRosie
'Passing Afternoon' - Iron & Wine
'Sunflower' - Low
'Certain Songs' - The Hold Steady
'Yellow' - from the Incredibly Strange Music Vol 2 comp
'Summer Wine' - Lee Hazelwood and Nancy Sinatra
'Bring It On' - Nick Cave
'Diggin My Potatos' - Big Bill Broonzy
'Green' - from the Incredibly Strange Music Vol 2 comp

It could use a few more tracks... any suggestions?

Oh, it doesn't really exist yet beyond mp3s, and I never really made a side B.

But I dunno, I could try to finish it and then maybe upload it or have it available on soulseek or something. Unless you want it in bona fide tape form

I made this not for my best friend or mom, but for my superawesomeamazingspectacularcrushboy Heart , in front of whom I made a drunken fool of myself on Friday.  Gaw.
Anyway, I'm going to give it to him tonight.  No title as yet, but I think I can see a theme if I step back a few feet and squint my eyes.

01 | The New Pornographers, "From Blown Speakers"
02 | Superdrag, "Baby Goes to 11"
03 | Earlimart, "All They Ever Do is Talk"
04 | Andrew Bird, "Action/Adventure"
05 | David Mead, "Comfort"
06 | Vetiver, "Farther On"
07 | Ted Leo/Pharmacists, "Timorous Me"
08 | A.C. Newman, "Most of Us Prizefighters"
09 | Beulah, "Me and Jesus Don't Talk Anymore"
10 | Minus Story, "You Were On My Side"
11 | The Shins, "Pink Bullets"
12 | Mike Doughty, "Rising Sign"
13 | The Extra Glenns, "Malevolent Seascape Y"
14 | Lullaby for the Working Class, "This Is As Close As We Get"
15 | Clem Snide, "Yip/Jump Music"
16 | Whiskeytown, "Avenues"
17 | Patrick Park, "Honest Skrew"
18 | Elliott Smith, "Coming Up Roses"
19 | Skating Club, "Haul Me In"
20 | Dolorean, "So You're a Touring Band Now"

I think my excuse for the excessive length is that he's about to go on a month-long tour, so he could maybe listen to it on long drives, if he ever listens to it at all, OH MY GOD.

*cough*

excessive length?

see this is the problem with mix cds instead of mix tapes. if someone gave you a mix tape and they left the last half hour of it blank, it seemed weird and like they either ran out of ideas or didn't care enough to finish. now, with cds being the dominant format, people feel like there's somehow something WRONG with you if you actually use all of the space available. that is sad in my humble opinion.

so like, if the boy is like me, he's going to think it's a lot cooler that you went ahead and filled up the cd than he would if you made it shorter. so there's that...

Okay, I'm about to reveal a bit more nerdiness than I generally care to, as I'm often ridiculed for spending too much time obsessing over the minutiae of mixmaking (particularly crushmixmaking).  That said..

Quote from: "Andrew_TSKS"
excessive length?


The thing about mixtapes is that you get a breather when you have to get up and switch sides (which often represents, in my experience, a thematic change).  Y'know, you can get up, get some water, mull over what the past 8-12 songs meant and whether or not you liked them, because the ambience of the mix is interrupted by the fact that there is no more music to be had.
I always felt like I was overwhelming the recipient if I made him/her a 120-minute mixtape (beside the fact that I have yet to find a high-bias tape of that length), because it meant 60 solid minutes of music they probably weren't familiar with before they got a break.

A 72-minute CD, then, means even more music without a break than they'd get with those pesky 120-minute tapes, unless I leave a note after song #10 that says to press pause or something.
90-minute Maxell XLIIs are the optimal mixmaking medium, I think, but my stereo's tape deck hasn't worked in years.  Sigh.

suggestion--download one of the tracks labeled "side division" from the eggs album "teenbeat 96 exploder," and just keep it on your computer. it's a minute of blank space, and you can just label it "side division" on the mix (without confusing the issue by crediting eggs for the track). everyone will get exactly what it represents. that might make you feel a little better about your mix cds.

i also agree with you about making 90 minute mix tapes. however, i must mention that high bias is actually inferior to normal bias. sure, it gets better quality of sound on initial recording, but high bias tapes actually decay a lot more easily than normal bias. this happens even if you don't play them, but especially if you do. so if you make someone a mix on a high bias tape, and they love it and play it all the time, it will eventually start acquiring dropouts and becoming sticky (which makes the spools wrap too tightly and the tape will stop in the middle of the side, at which time you have to bang it against a desk or something before it will play again). this won't happen with a normal bias tape, and i personally feel that the sound quality loss is so minimal that it isn't even worth mentioning.

i would still make mix tapes for people too, but my problem is that i'm pretty much the only person i know who still has a tape player.
