Welcome to my tequila-fueled Mockingbird; it ain't Plastic, but it'll hafta do. Since most of y'all are familiar with the background of the swap and its history, we'll just fast-forward right to the good stuff: the tunes. What kinda tunes did you send out, and what kinda tunes did you receive? If you've got your tracklist(s) handy, please post 'em so everyone can do a little trendspotting and see what styles of tuneage were being lugged to mailboxes by the intrepid folks of the postal services on two continents. Perhaps we'll be able to discern the next big direction in music-dom whilst perusing our participating Plastician's musical offerings, or perhaps not. Eh, doesn't matter whether we're at the beginning or the end of any musical happenings - what matters is how the tunes you received affected you. Now's your chance to praise your swap partners for their incredible taste in music, or criticize (constructively) 'em for their selections from Zamfir's Greatest Hits
as a proper choice for inclusion on a mix CD.
Oh, one last thing. I believe we should continue the music swap next year irregardless of Plastic's status. For future contact purposes, I'll keep the current database of participants in the Gmail account for next year's exchange in the event that the situation at Plastic deteriorates any further. Djerrid, (last year's host) and I will decide in what direction to steer this thing should Plastic hit the skids permanently. Anyone wishing their email status to be deleted from the Gmail account can drop me a note over there and I'll delete your contact info. Also, anyone wishing to helm this thing next year can say so in the commentary here or drop me a line at the Gmail account.
With that, it's all yours. Give us some raves about your tuneage faves!
