A list of mixes I've made (posted at artofthemix)

Favorite Music

Nobody listens to just one thing. This person listens to eighties hardcore punk, ambient drones, psych rock in all its lysergic varieties, cannonical indie rock, sixties stuff, geeky IDM, dream pop, and yes, even country music, though I much prefer the older stuff. You've heard this line before, but I'd like to make you a mixtape.

About Me

I'm 29 and live on Boston's South Shore and work for a textbook publisher. In my off-hours, I practice the difficult art of making mixtapes. Is putting twenty or so particular songs in exactly the right order worth my afternoon? Of course it is! What a silly question!

I'm also a big reader and went to school for lit, twice, even. I sort of dream of becoming a writer, if only to keep my own mind humming along. It's something people have always told me to do that I've never quite gotten serious about. Anyway, I figured that signing up for some writing swaps would be a good way to get started.

Comment: I know it's ridiculous for me to leave a rating now, so many years after the actual swap. I didn't rate initially because Andrew sent me an e-mail soon after the deadline saying he would be late. I waited and never received, but I never rated him because I still believed he would eventually send. Of course this never happened. I am only rating now, because I was going through past swaps and saw this, and I wanted to 'close the book' in a sense.

Comment: Thank you! I've heard maybe two of the songs you included, I don't know most of the bands, so I'm really excited to hear the songs :) I have exam week now so maybe I can listen while I'm reading for my exams.

Hi TheAmpersand, I noticed your 'pissed off' cd mix swap hasn't been marked sent yet. Are you having difficulty getting this out to your partner? Please let me know so I can angel the swap asap, if need be. Thanks! Laura
