Title: Xixax Mixtape Exchange
Post by: ᾦɐļᵲʊʂ on July 05, 2010, 10:55:50 PM
So, I was thinking, you admins and mods and other forms of authority take upon yourselves, for reasons unknown to me, to host awards stuff for the Oscars every year (or rather Xixax awards).  I'm incredibly grateful that you accept that burden so that we as a board can immediately thereafter launch into tirades about how incredibly wrong each outcome is or pat each other on the back and say "Yeah, we can all seem to agree on Best Supporting Actress."

Well, now I'd like to give back to you guys.  And the rest of you guys.  And girls.

I'd like to try to help organize a Xixax Mixtape Exchange.  Now, as I post this, this is all preliminary.  Nothing is official, I'm just testing the waters to see if you guys actually want to have some fun with this.  

In fact, I'm not even sure what I could do to organize things.  But I'd accept that responsibility.  I figure I could organize who would trade with who, we could do a new one each month, or something, maybe use rapidshare, etc.

What does everyone/anyone think?

-----------------------------------------------

CURRENT/TENTATIVE RULES (to efficiently participate, follow these guidelines):

1.  Must be uploaded as a .rar or .zip. 
These are easiest to open.

2. Songs must be organized by number as you wish for them to appear on your mixtape.
Order is key.

3.  This first post will be updated with the theme of each month's mixtape.
Themes will be decided on Xixax posters -- just like you!

i'm in!
i love mixtapes ever since i was little.

i think a good way to make this work would be to pick a topic each week or whenever we're bored and you just contribute when you feel like it, the same way it works in the caption thread or those other threads where there's no need to  schedule things.


rules:
the mixtape must be uploaded as a rar or zip file  and be organized as such, meaning that the title of the album will be the same for each of the songs and they will have a numerical order. 



i'd suggest a topic for a playlist right now but i'm too tired.

yeah i'm against spotify as well because you can't carry around that music. nothing like good old mp3s wherever you go.

my suggestions for the first mixtape:
- a one hour mixtape for making excercise that consists only of rock songs.
- music to drink wine and eat cheese to.

i love picolas' idea, though.

Let's do this. I'm always game for mixtapes.

Some suggestions:

-Boogie Nights Vol. 3
-Music In Plainview (Jams for Daniel's iPod Touch)
-Big Ass Boombox (old school hip-hop)
-Beach Kindlin' (songs to go with beach reading)

there's no better way to win a woman's heart than an epic mixtape, because if she's not into that, then she's not your type and you have to go looking somewhere else.


so when's the deadline?

Ok, so, as a point of reference, I can keep the main post updated with the number of confirmed participants if you wanna do the exchanges. 

Now, do you guys want me to pair everyone up randomly and to send mixtapes to each other via rapidshare, or are we just going to post playlists in this thread?  I figured if we do this monthly, then we'd all rotate now and then and you know, share the music.  But otherwise, I don't mind just posting lists.  Xixax and lists are like turtles and shells.

Depends on the OS.  On a Mac, open a finder window and click the button to show items in columns.  Then open iTunes and click that far left column so it's in ascending order.  Now when you highlight the tracks you want to drop in that finder window, they should drop in in the proper order.

B.M.'s list also suggests something (beyond breaking one of the only rules):

Should one be allowed to contain a mixtape with more than one song per artist?  I've always enjoyed mixtapes that represent a total variety rather than wallowing around in their own immediate sound.

Cinemanarkissed-Your Girlfriend On The Beach

I went with a summery/impress a girl type of vibe. A shade over 45 minutes, perfect for a nice summer walk, or a solid make out session. Enjoy.

With a mix this good emanating from your oversized boombox, the girl(s) will find you.

very well

remove the olivia tremor control and neon indian reprises (tracks 18 & 20)

(i consider them interludes as opposed to songs, given they are both under a minute in length)

now replace "calling it quits" with ms. mann's "stranger into starman (http://www.zshare.net/download/78326217df4cf5fd/)"

that should put me back within regulation at 79.21 minutes with no artist repeats

But....i haven't done one....because i know if this were a competition...i would win.

I've been really liking Cinemanarkissed's compilation. Lots of new stuff I'd never heard of before, and a pleasingly consistent vibe (a virtue I've completely avoided in my own, despite nominal thematic coherence). Particularly enjoying Toro Y Moi, Delorean and Tanlines; and to find Newsom sampled in The Roots was a pleasant surprise!

Am now downloading the others, though Picolas' link seems to be broken...

Help!

Organize your files.  Most importantly (picolas, I'm looking at you) simply put the track number at the beginning so it plays properly.  Just edit them accordingly and put them all in a folder.  Then make that folder a zip folder.  Then go to a site like www.rapidshare.com or www.megaupload.com (there are a myriad of others as well, but these work pretty user friendly), upload it and post your link.

And if you're feeling creative, make a graphic like some of the other fine mixtapes have.

Then download other peoples' and enjoy.

And maybe in another month or so, we can all pick a new theme and play again!

As it is, I'm prepping everyone's on my ipod and am about to go bananas.

To me Crow Left of The Murder is their peak and Morning View was the seedlings of them physically getting out of the rap/rock genre everyone threw them in or whatever it was called. I'm with you on that stefen

Let's get a general consensus going as far as theme goes.

Do we want to form a tape for the next girl?

Do we want to form a tape for rock n roll for your funeral?

Any other brilliant suggestions?

i would like it much more if it was called:

Off of of of of of of of of of of of of of of of of of of of ofofofofofofofofofofofofofofofofofofofofofofofoffffffffffffffffffff

at least it works in context.. i can imagine this is the mixtape for someone whose disregard for his general safety was only matched by his disregard for proper use of words.

The Squintessential Summer Mixtape (http://www.mediafire.com/?phb4zthvkjw72eb)

Tracklist:
1. "Here Comes the Sun" - Wise Blood
2. "Stunts" - Teams
3. "Sutphin Boulevard" - Blood Orange
4. "Waves" - Teen Daze
5. "Vanessa" - Grimes
6. "Portofino" - Teengirl Fantasy
7. "You and I" - Washed Out
8. "Photojournalist" - Small Black
9. "Black Chow" - Big Spider's Back
10. "Hammock" - Millionyoung
11. "Killin' the Vibe (Feat. Panda Bear)" - Ducktails
12. "In the Water" - Beat Connection
13. "Waves Imagination" - Lone
14. "White Folding Slowly (Into Blue Remix)" - DJ Nobody
15. "Don't Make Me Laugh" - Big Spider's Back
16. "Stick to My Side (Walls Version)" - Pantha Du Prince

------------------------------------------

So i imagine this mix won't be for everyone. There's a lot of instrumental-type stuff on here but also some pretty catchy pop stuff. Some might find it repetitive but its the kinda shit that I've been diggin on these days.
Most of the songs are from 2010 and 2011. I know its probably too big to fit on a CD-R but if you like some of it i guess you can pick an choose.

and there seems to be a Teen/Wave/Water/Blood Vibe goin on....whatevs...

Enjoy these jams that have gotten me through the past three weeks of 100+ degree heat roun these parts.

All right, then.  Everybody make the most epic mixtape that you would give to a girl you wanted to have intimate relations with.  You have one week.

Proposed new assignment:

Mix tape for after the girl from the first mix tape dumps you.


I did a mix of those. But... yeah, don't know how to upload the shit. So it was kind of pointless.

Here it is anyway:

(http://img830.imageshack.us/img830/2787/mixtapes.jpg)

Disc 1 - Music To Get The Pussy Wet:  
1. Yo la Tengo - Autumn Sweater
2. Galaxie 500 - Leave the Planet
3. The Vaselines - Teenage Superstars
4. Violent Femmes - Add It Up
5. Bright Eyes - Lila

Disc 2 - Sometimes When You Sleep I Put My Penis In Your Mouth And Say I Love You:
1. The Mountain Goats - No Children
2. The Magnet Fields - Yeah! Oh, yeah!

Disc 3 - Fuck You. I Was Just Kidding (And Now I Kill Myself):
1. Joy Division - Love Will Tears Us Apart
2. Swans - God Damn the Sun
4. La Dispute - Andria
5. Hightide Hotel - Porch Luck
5. Radiohead - True Love Waits
6. The Velvet Underground - Sunday Morning

EDIT: The two songs on disc 2 (aka: SWYSIPMPIYMASILY) are pretty much the best love songs ever. I will play the shit out of those songs when I'm getting married. If i'm getting married.
