I am sick and tired of the image of making a mixtape for someone becoming something huge and meaningful. Please discuss.

it's not necessarily meaningful, but it's a nice thing to give/receive.

np- new order 'perfect kiss' :cool:

the only mix that ever worked out was the Belle and sebastian mix i made for my sister. But most of the time the get listened to once, and are left to collect dust.


Personally i really dislike listening to mixtapes/cds. I prefer listening to entire albums. I can't stand listening to radio either.

Yeah, I hate it when you make a mix for someone and they never listen to it. That's insulting.

a friend of mine has made me like, 3 mix tapes and 2 mix CDs since i've known her and i discovered some of my favorite bands and songs through it.

so, i say thumbs up to mix tapes/CDs.

I like mixed CDs. My ex-boyfriend and I used to exchange them as gifts for each other when we had no money to get anything nice. My friend and I still exchange them so we could keep up with what the other one is listening to.

I've loved mixtapes since I was like ten, when I would tape stuff off the radio. I didn't even know they were called mixtapes.

I make mixtapes (cds) for some of my friends, I give a little write out about why I like that song or why i'm including it, and they seem to really like them, so...
i also trade mixtapes (cds) with another friend who has good taste in music, so it exposes me to some new stuff.

so i like them.

Making them makes me feel like I'm participating in some cliched indie cultural ritual.

I don't like mixtapes. If you've never heard the song/band before, and then you listen to the full album later, it's kind of jarring.

i made a few mix md's for a nephew of mine, which he really seems to like. and it's a nice way to get the young kids away from mainstream radio....

Yeah, me too, but that doesn't stop me from obsessing over them so much. :-/

Maybe I'm just bitter. Everyone I make something like that for never reciprocates. I haven't gotten a mix in years and have been putting them together for fun since I was 14 and made an REM mix for a girl.

I'm old. Fuck Mixtapes.

basically anything 70s that involves zappa is good, john

and i'd make you one too, but i don't think our tastes are really compatible

and you'll have to be more specific. zappa released over 20 albums during the 70s.

Are you a pretty girl? Then it hardly counts, does it? Oh, who am I kidding, make me a mix. :)

John, as far as Zappa goes, there's a lot of musical ground to cover. I would recommend starting with something like Hot Rats or Burnt Weenie Sandwich.
