Shuffle CD Swap - International

Launch gallery slideshow

Swap Coordinator:heide (contact)
Swap categories: Miscellaneous  Music  Newbie 
Number of people in swap:66
Last day to signup/drop:October 1, 2007
Date items must be sent by:October 8, 2007
Number of swap partners:2

EDIT: Changing to 2 swap partners instead of 3, to ease shipping costs.

I'm newish to swap-bot, so maybe this has been done before, but here goes anyway...

In this swap you'll create a CD using songs from the SHUFFLE feature on your iPod, iTunes, or whatever media player you use. NO CHEATING! Hit shuffle, start playing, and keep track of the songs that play, then put them on a CD in the order they played. Only edit the playlist if something completely inappropriate or kooky comes up, like in my case a track from an audio book.

Include as many songs as will fit on a CD, which should be at least 15 (unless you have some crazy-long songs).

I'm going to make the time between sign-up and send dates pretty short, since you won't be doing anything special to cater to your partners and can make your CDs early before sign-up ends.

Specs: - You will send to 2 swap partners (international) - Must have a rating of at least 4.5, no recent no-sends - Newbies welcome, with a completed profile - I will ban after sign-up ends

Happy Shuffling!

Oh cool, some people are going to get songs that totally don't go together.

heide 09/24/2007 #

Ginfer, Yes you can sign up -- but please have a completed profile. Thanks, and welcome to swap-bot! :)

heide 09/24/2007 #

Nailbunny, getting strange tracks is part of the fun! I can't wait to see what kind of completely strange stuff shows up on these CDs -- after you receive your CDs from your partners, feel free to list here the tracks on the CDs, or list at least some of the more bizarre tracks.

heide 09/25/2007 #

We made the Top 10!!!

ScarlettNicole 09/25/2007 #

yay! My playlist for the cd is quite odd!

thelydia 09/26/2007 #

I'm going to apologize in advance to whomever is ending up with my disc! Haha! There are some pretty obscure weird things that popped up ... :) Can we just post our shuffle lists here now?

heide 09/26/2007 #

Linda, I can't wait to hear what ended up on your CD! Let's wait til after we ship to list tracks though, to keep it a surprise for your partners. :)

Last one of these I did, I ended up sending a CD with a Slayer song immediately followed by a Paula Abdul song.

Hlynna 10/ 1/2007 #

One of the tracks on my disc is NWS. Is that going to be a problem? I can take it out.

heide 10/ 1/2007 #

hlynna -- go ahead and leave it in, if it's a problem for the recipient they can just skip over it! What makes this swap fun is that some crazy stuff will end up on these CDs! :)

heide 10/ 1/2007 #

Reminder: Anyone with recent no-sends will be banned after sign-ups end today. If you feel you've been rated unfairly, contact me.

MandiNoel 10/ 1/2007 #

Haha, now I feel like a loser, as all my tracks came up relatively normal. Oh well. Luck of the draw, I suppose.

heide 10/ 2/2007 #

Partners have been assigned! :)

US Post Offices are closed (with minor exceptions) on October 8, 2007, because of Columbus Day. I will send my swaps on Tuesday, October 9.

drewzel 10/ 7/2007 #

Not too much variety in mine, as I've only just started using iTunes last month. But they're on their way!

heide 10/ 9/2007 #

I sent an email out to all swap participants saying not to worry if you couldn't ship yesterday because POs in the US were closed yesterday... But apparently no one got the message?? Anyhoo... If you ship today 10/9, it will still be considered "on time" ! :)

fearfulpenguin 10/10/2007 #

My CDs will be sent tomorrow, sent late due to postal strike in the UK, sorry guys!

jeanland 10/13/2007 #

To both my partners - I hope you get the PM I sent but one of you didn't. My laptop died (SOB!) and is at the Apple/Mac store. They had to rebuild but were able to save most of the music files, etc. I will be able to get the CD out by the end of the weekend. I'm so sorry - technology was my foe on this swap!!


gemgem77 10/26/2007 #
