I apologize for the delay. Unfortunately, we have had a death in the family and I will be spending much of the coming week(s)? traveling and arranging funeral services.

Is there another member of the swap willing to set up the groups, pretty much take over from here on out? I will be at the computer tonight, but will have limited access starting tomorrow. Please reply here, I will check this thread every so often this evening.

Sorry about your loss, Bo.

I'm not able to take over this project what with work and school and whatnot.

posted by NoMich at 08:21 AM on February 19, 2010

So sorry for your loss. Tell me exactly what I need to do to manage the project and I can tell you if I can take it over.

posted by yzelda4045 at 09:03 AM on February 19, 2010

My condolences, Bo.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to take over either. If Yzelda can't take over, maybe you should just postpone it?

Bo, Have you sent me some information to my email address? If so, please resend, I hiccouped and deleleted some email in error.

posted by yzelda4045 at 07:19 AM on February 23, 2010

Thanks for the well wishes. I very much appreciate it.

Once again, I apologize for the delay and I am really looking forward to some new music. Groups will be posted tonight here and emails will be sent to each of you.

Wow. Nice mix YYM. Really looking forward to it. I have been juggling mine quite a bit between safe/not safe for owlhouse's neighbors. Because of the indecision, it appears I'll end up with a two-disc mix as well.

My tracklists will be posted by mail time.

posted by BoKnows at 09:16 PM on March 01, 2010

I'm supposed to post my list??? Oh shoot, better get really busy....

posted by yzelda4045 at 08:41 AM on March 02, 2010

You don't have to, yzelda, it's up to you.

posted by BoKnows at 08:14 PM on March 02, 2010

Whew! Thanks.

posted by yzelda4045 at 07:18 AM on March 03, 2010

But we'll think less of you as a person if you don't.

posted by NoMich at 08:28 AM on March 03, 2010

Thanks for the additional pressure. This is the first time I've participated in the CD swap, you're making it really on me, NoMich. I'm trying to get my final decision done on which songs. Does the posting have to be before I send the CDs?

posted by yzelda4045 at 10:15 AM on March 03, 2010

I'm sorry. Apparently, I have no sense of humor this week. This isn't the first incidence of sarcasm that I've missed this week....LOL. I know, more time on the list, less time wiring about it. I'm working, I'm working...

posted by yzelda4045 at 10:41 AM on March 03, 2010

Sorry about that yzelda. You should probably take everything I saw as a joke. Except for this. Andy by "this," I mean the preceding sentences.

posted by NoMich at 04:55 PM on March 03, 2010

He's joking.

posted by Ying Yang Mafia at 04:55 PM on March 03, 2010

CDs received, YYM. Thanks!

posted by BoKnows at 08:25 PM on March 08, 2010

I road tested the preproduction version ofNoise From The Rose Bush Vol. III today. There's still a little tweaking to be done, but don't worry, it will still ship next week.

My cds will mail tomorrow. Track lists will be posted *shortly.

posted by BoKnows at 04:39 PM on March 14, 2010

My cds will mail this week. I know, I know, waited until the last moment to burn and mail them...my grandson did something to my playlists and all of the titles are scambled....Arrgh!

posted by yzelda4045 at 02:12 PM on March 15, 2010

Alrighty then.

Mine did mail today...YYM, bender and folkways should receive this week. Owlhouse, I'm not sure. I mailed them during the day, so they should arrive in the middle of the night, right?

They also spin anti-clockwise in the southern hemisphere.
