Genius to fall asleep to your tape last night...
This idea is inspired by Mallie from the fantastic (but now defunct) blog South of Mainstream. Mallie had readers send in one song that they would like to include on a one-of-a-kind mix. Weeks later my SoM mix arrived in the mail, and I have to say that it is one of the best mixes someone has made for me. The mix is extremely eclectic since it combines divergent music tastes, and Mallie did an excellent job of weaving them seamlessly all together.
So, here goes the first Indie Don't Dance Mix put together by you and me.
Here are the steps:
- The first 10 readers to leave me comment will help make the mix
- Email me an mp3 of the one song you would like to include
- I will email you my mailing address
- Mail me a blank CD and a SASE
- I will sort the songs into a nice little tracklist
- My students and I will design a nifty CD cover for your mix (there are no child labor laws against this)
- You'll receive the first ever Indie Don't Dance Mix in the mail care of the USPS
Here's some inspiration to get your ideas flowing.
Division Day has something to dance about. Their first full-length Beartrap Island is out today. Throw down $10 and buy the album because it is fantastically wonderful. Plus, the guys from Division Day are sweet and we like sweet bands.
I forgot to say good morning to you all.
