The music is in the mail: I just dropped three CDs to various places in the US and one to god knows where in China in the mail. I sure hope someone can interpret that address that I wrote, because except for the recipient's name and CHINA none of it makes any sense to me. Here's hoping it gets there!

Mine will be out by the end of the week. Someone mentioned that you could print out a playlist right from in itunes? I gave it a cursory glance and didn't see it, where is it exactly? Speaking of playlists are we going to list them somewhere?

posted by tron7 at 03:34 PM on January 09, 2007

I'm pretty sure if you just put the recipient's name and CHINA on your mailing, it will get there. If I've learned anything from watching tons of movies from the 50's it's that the Chinese are inscrutable, so maybe they have an awesome postal service. For the record, I'm not sure I know what "inscrutable" means. Has anyone else sent out their CDs? You have six days left before face punches begin. Otherwise, I know a guy who will totally inscrute you.

With an inscruted face I bet I could clean up on the profesional poker circuit.. hm.. tempting.. tempting..

Speaking of playlists are we going to list them somewhere? you can submit your playlists to the spofiswap email address. i'll start posting them next week. please include your spofi name and team name. cause i'm lazy. and i don't want to have to look things up. also, re: printing a playlist in itunes, on a mac the option is in the "print" window. i assume it would be similar on a non-mac.

Don't forget to factor in travel time. You might even have six and a half. Maybe even more if the face puncher travels on a budget. Greyhound can take a long time..

posted by apoch at 05:58 PM on January 09, 2007

Sweet. Five whole days before I need to start worrying. Okay, my bad. I need to clear some things up. You have some time before face punching begins. Face punching begins on the 25th, and all CDs should be sent out by the 15th. Inscruting, on the other hand, may or may not have already begun.

posted by Samsonov14 at 06:14 PM on January 09, 2007

So I'm in? I've not been given a list of names to ship to. My address is here and your best bet is to print it and tape it to the envelope. If I am more than a recipient someone please let me know. I'll get busy on my playlisting/burning. Some real Chinese treats for y'all. Probably unknown to most of you, an earthquake near Taiwan back around Christmas severed communication cables with the mainland and the internet has been unusably slow for weeks. It may be several more weeks before the repairs are finished.

I finally got my playlist small enough to fit on a CD. I ended up using 79 out of the 80 minutes. All of the CD's have been burned, now I'm just working on cover art. I have every intention of going to the post office on Saturday and putting them in padded envelopes and sending them to the four lucky recipients.

I hear timing is everything, well at this time my CD-R drive has crashed and burned. Unfortunately before I got the chance to burn my CD’s. Hopefully a simple fix, if not I’ll replace the damn thing. Not being a computer guru I may have to take the tower to the shop that built it for me. Either way I will get the music out ASAP, bruised face or not. Of course this only effects TEAM PATRICK EWING.

…so anyway yall, as I sit here at the keyboard this afternoon I have come to the point where I just cant let this fucking machine frustrate me any more. What would have been a breeze back in August, I let overwhelm me. We’re talking Klonopin, Xanax; Valium can’t hide the anxiety levels of irritation I’ve aloud this simple project to create in my head. Once upon a time I had a shop build me a tower specifically for music and on-line game play. All the RIGHT stuff to transfer all my old 33 and a third LP’s and cassettes to CD. Massive storage, memory, and graphics along with a copy of Word Perfect, Ahead Nero, etc..I used the machine for saving old Greatful Dead concert cassettes from shows I did not get to attend as well as transferring my LP’s to CD in order not to have to buy the CD’s. My kids used it for gamming (Everquest, World of Warfare (or something like that.). I’d have 2 or 3 concerts set to DL while the kids played their games (god bless highspeed cable modems. Then in May my oldest of 2 boys graduates High School and heads off to college. When I asked what he wanted for graduation/college entry he says he wants my tower. After about 6 weeks of no, I give in and let him take that tower in exchange for the computer his mother had bought for him. Something called an eMachine, well im still able to reach the net and e-mail (the only other 2 things I do on a computer). Not until I saw the CD swap in the lockeroom had I actually tried to copy music on this thing. I knew nothing about windows media player, Word or Office or what ever this word processing software is called. Already pretty much computer illiterate as most of you have observed (hey I have the e-mail from SpofiSwap to prove it) I quickly found out all software programs are not equal in abilities when it comes to copying music. See it used to be really easy when it was long distance phone calls to message boards and making a request and or filling one for someone else. Course back then we were trading cassettes not CD’s. The passion some of you have for sports, or a sport in particular is similar to my passion for music of all kinds. That’s why I jumped on this train, only instead of following the directions, I got here… well ok it works like this, you hide in the woods at a long bend in the track, wait for the engineer to round the corner and before the caboose comes into sight you jump a boxcar, hopefully unseen. So while I got here in a bassackwards kinda way I do appreciate the leap of faith yall took to let me play. I mean I like SpoFi and a lot of the people here are really cool. I’ve learned lots about sports I knew little about before. Or in the case of Hockey absolutely nothing at all when I got here. I check out what’s going on 2 or 3 times a day for the pure entertainment of it. I dig Jearseygirl and her Guidelines comments to noods, l_b_b’s ability to piss just about anyone off if she feels the need, the wit and humor of several others. BPP’s baseball stuff is fantastic and having once upon a time worked with several manufacturing plants to institute SPC systems Grum and his stats debates are great. Im just not really comfortable commenting on topics very often myself. As that afore mentioned e-mail stated im no writer and spelling and grammar are far beyond my dyslexic semi mush drain cells can comprehend. Knowing (shit reading retorts) I know how important spelling and correct grammar are to the members of SpoFi that I have a lot of respect for. So to avoid de-railing a thread because someone will have to take the time to post one of the “if ya can’t spell and use correct grammar…..” comments. But I digress, now where was I, oh yea the swap situation. Being used to knowing what my target audience wanted a copy of made things easy, but just putting together a CD of music for someone who’s taste’s I don’t know was a bit different for me. First thought was ok ill do this using no Grateful Dead for starters, the thought about also eliminating any cover tunes as well crossed my mind. But then some covers are excellently done. So I dropped that idea. Now ripping the music to this machine was no problem but it refused to record. I’ve used several different brands of blanks as it seems this thing likes some better than others. Set record as slow as possible, shut down anything else running in the background yet still recording has been a bitch. Not at all what I expected and the more I worked at it the worse I made it. Finally a friend of mine had a chance to stop by and he actually got it to record….intermittently anyway. While unable to copy CD’s I kept twisting turning and tweaking my CD set list. Do I go with bands people know? Do I use more than one song from any given band? Blah Blah Blah. Now there are 3 different sets and all are recorded. The second of which is a lazy attempt to just get this done and really isn’t all that impressive, Almost decided not to even send them but then thought what the hell, I fucking fought tooth and nail to get the copies made so I may as well send them. At last the third set of songs I copied I am proud of. Today Ill be making the inserts for the jewel cases one way or another so I can mail them in the morning. If I get the chance Ill post the other 2 set lists. Seeing as 2 are going to Canada set 3 has a very heavy southern U.S. particularly Alabama flavor, some rock, bluegrass, and two guys rollin’ in the hay. Sorry bout the long post but if I didn’t get this shit out of my head and on paper (well computer) there was no way I would be able to move past it. Yea I know im one of the really strange ones you all have met in the past and gone Damn, is that dude all here, on drugs, or what. But that’s ok with me cause I know im not normal according to our social norms in this country. Hell without people like me how would the rest of you know what proper behavior is and isn’t, and I fall far left of the norm. Well time to see if the templates Lorie sent me work with Word, no time for any cutesy covers like some of yall have done but none the less at least there will be a playlist.

Folkways, after a careful analysis of the problem I have determined that your internet connection is, indeed, working. Thanks for the comments. I enjoy your strangeness, for the record, but I suspect you're going to catch hell from the baseball crowd for giving me such high billing.

posted by BullpenPro at 05:15 PM on January 16, 2007

You are my hero, Folkways. By signing up for the swap, you basically promised to make 4 CD's and mail them to people who are pretty much strangers to you. It sounds like circumstances gave you plenty of excuses, but yet you persevered to keep your promise to 4 strangers. That shows you have character. I will never be able to see a picture of a kitten hanging from a clothes line again without thinking of the name, "Folkways".

How can anyone despise the en fuego Fergie, apoch? With her moves she's probably causing prudie Bible Belt housewives to feel more than a bit uncomfortable... down there.

JG, I'll totally go lip gloss shopping with you at the mall. I probably won't buy anything. You can try on different lipglosses, and I'll just sort of watch. You know, like I'll watch you as you slowly slide the gloss across your lips. Maybe you could try on a dark red, or maybe even a bubble-gum pink. I mean, whatever. Whatever you're into. Now that I think about it, maybe I will buy something. Like, for my girlfriend or something. She's an Autumn, like me. I'm not sure what goes with that. Probably a muted brown would perfectly highlight my full lips. Or whatever. I wouldn't actually buy lip gloss or anything. Excuse me, I have to go do something.

posted by owlhouse at 11:24 PM on January 18, 2007

jerseygirl, you'd really like the "versions" I put on the mix if you like 'em for working out. The tempo of every song has been sped up at least 1.5. Some were 1.75, and rarer 2.0. I know Fergilicious is double speed. That's how I was able to fit 32 songs on one audio cd. A lot of stuff does not speed up well. Especially songs with acoustic instruments (I wanted to put Song Noir by John Aiur on the mix, but it sounded like crap at even 1.5). Some singers voices get warbly and suck when sped up (hence no Vienna Teng). It seemed like songs with more production work (like Simpson/Hilton et al isn't mostly production work) sped up the best. So hopefully Team Mike Ricci finds something to like about the mix despite the high quotient of pop on it. As far as lip gloss goes, what is this Sephora place you speak of? I could pick up a flavor combo pack, my daughters seem to enjoy those.

As far as lip gloss goes, what is this Sephora place you speak of? Dude, seriously, don't ask. Just step away from the Sephora. Imagine all of the perfumes of the world mixed together in your bathtub, and then you have to get in the tub with Nicole Richie. It's a chemical spill, mall-style.

I have received all of Team Mike Ricci's CDs and have them piled up on my work computer. I will now go through each one and rock out the day. Thanks guys!

Cheers to lil_brown_bat whose CD I have already received. Funky, indeed. Oh yay, it made it!!! I just got back from a wonderful week skiing in Colorado. As soon as I can manage to get dressed, I'll toddle to the post office to claim my new tunes!!!

My apologies, guys. We had a double computer crash -- one at work and one at home. My double CD, Take Cover!, will hit the post office either Wednesday night or Thursday morning and should be in hot little American hands sometime the following week. My apologies -- now, can you call off the face punching? Doesn't mean she isn't en fuego, especially while dancing. Well, at least her pants won't catch fire. And remember, when you choose Fergie, urine good company!

Oh, now that just pisses me off.

TBH doesn't take kindly to pee jokes, nope.

TBH is pissed off. Fergie, apparently, is pissed on. Or in. Her pants.

I just want to thank my fellow Team Mike Ricci CD swappers for an enjoyable day at work yesterday. The CDs that you sent made the day fly right on by. I don't really have a favorite because the music is so good on all them, but I do feel the need to point out that I'm not worthy of apoch's (new word alert) geniusosity.

SummersEve Status: received. Heard. Rocked. Very hard. Injured myself. Wearing large bandage on forehead. Was not previously down with Brandtson or Arctic Monkeys. Like very much. Bus Driver is wiggity. And I'm not sure I mean that in a good way. qbert72 Status: received. Heard the first few songs. Stopped listening only because I had returned home. Musically, awesome. Lyrics, garbled, like they were in some kind of foreign language. Very fun set, I look forward to completing it. Ufez Jones Status: undelivered. Note from his doctor. garfield Status: undelivered. Face punchers may or may not be on alert. goddam Status: bonus CD received. Heard the first few songs. Again, only stopped listening because I got home. Very good so far, though I will say that the song "Saturday Night" sure doesn't get any shorter when it's sung by a school group and recorded on location. The inclusion of "Basketball Jones" was brilliant. I am anticipating the rest of the set with great anticipation. BullpenPro Send status: all CDs are out except for the bonus CD I owe goddam, which will go out presently.

Ok, I'll fess up. I haven't completed the mission, and I've avoided coming into this thread out of pure guilt. Hopefully, it will please my team to know that I have resisted opening their glorious CDs, despite overwhleming temptation, until I get my ass in gear, which I hope will happen tonight. I've got a general concept and the meat that goes with, but I need a few garnishes. I went to FP HQ over the weekend, and was given a bye. I think it was due to the free food offering.

Careful, man...they tell you hey're not gonna punch you in the face, but then, well, all I'm saying is, free food or no, watch your back.

Status: received...1 out of 4. Congrats and thanks to bperk for the most excellent grooves. Didja see Jackie Robinson hit that ball? Did he hit it? Yes! And that ain't all -- He stole home! Damn, next time I must come up with at least one sports-themed track.

posted by lil_brown_bat at 03:52 PM on January 23, 2007

That's why I went with "Magic Johnson," by the Chili Peppers. It just felt wrong not having a sports song tossed into the mix.

posted by The_Black_Hand at 05:06 PM on January 23, 2007

Still waiting with great expectation for even one CD. At least I got mine sent out. MrFrisby, not being sure of your age but fully awear of your intelegence, wit, and a general feeling that we just might get along at the right time and or place, Id like to offer to put you togeather a mix of party songs from 1954-1969. Some you will recognize others maybe not. Just a set of shit you may not be familure with but might enjoy. Nothing needed in return. Just let me know if interested. Peace!

The only regret that I have with my mix is that I neglected to put any Celtic Frost on it. Well, maybe mix number three will make up for that mess up. TBH: what software did you use to make your mix?

posted by NoMich at 06:40 PM on January 23, 2007

Folkways, that sounds pretty cool. That era is just a tad before my time, but I still like the music. Shoot me an email, addy's in the profile.

That's why I went with "Magic Johnson," by the Chili Peppers. It just felt wrong not having a sports song tossed into the mix. Well, plus the song is freakin' sweet. It just occurred to me that after all my mixing and matching, the only sports-related cut I have is Stickfigure. Talk about losing focus.

posted by BullpenPro at 11:41 PM on January 23, 2007

Well, plus the song is freakin' sweet. Yeah, there is that, too. NoMich, I used Adobe Audition 1.5; it's the updated, Adobe-Owns-The-World version of a program called Cool Edit Pro. You can still get Cool Edit on ebay and some other places much cheaper than Adobe, it just won't have a couple of the bells and whistles, and you won't have access to any tech support (which I've never needed in over a decade of using the two programs). Also, if you're in the market for the program, I recommend 1.5 over 2.0, but that's because all I edit is audio. 2.0 is Adobe's first attempt to convert the program to video editing exclusively.

Lyrics, garbled, like they were in some kind of foreign language. Ha! You're the funny. It just felt wrong not having a sports song tossed into the mix. Damn straight. In the middle of my Saguenay segment, I've got Saku Koivu, an ode to the Canadiens captain sung and played by Fred Fortin's 3-year-old son, for whom Saku is "big" (perspective, perspective). Just before that, it's Dale Hawerchuk, by the band Les Dales Hawerchuk, on the album Les Dales Hawerchuk. And yes, Saguenay is that region. Hockey is serious business over there.
