RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Thoughts? I'll organize if no one else wants to organize, but if someone else wants to organize, I don't mind not organizing.

I was just thinking about this. Well, the what to name it part. I was thinking something like Spring Shebang - or Time to Shebang It Again. Maybe Shebangs, Shebangs!

RA, you're funny: I don't mind not organizing is like an algebra equation. I have to cross out the negatives to see what you really mean.
I mind organizing, I don't mind organizing, I mind not organizing, I don't mind not organizing. *spins*

The Ficus | 72 comments I mind being neglected.

Félix (habitseven) Hey, Ficus, I'm the only one here who pays any attention to you at all!


message 9: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17319 comments Mod
That's not true. I pay attention when I scoot you around.


message 10: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Ficus needs some intellectual stimulation once in a while -- just like the rest of us.


message 11: by smetchie (new)

smetchie | 4034 comments I'm ready! But I don't have any theme ideas. I need to be guided and inspired.


message 12: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17319 comments Mod
I'm thinking it would be cool if we each did something completely different, like spring/summer/fall/winter or happy/sad/angry/calm/joy or ... morning/afternoon/evening/middle of the night (doh! already done!)


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments Count me in, whatever we end up doing. :)


message 14: by Gus (new)

Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) I'm in, as always.


message 15: by Gus (new)

Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) But each Shebanger should decide their own theme, regardless of seasons; I, for one, can't ever seem to come up with a seasonal theme for my mixes, so I tend to do something more obscure that's fun for me to do.


message 16: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17319 comments Mod
No, no. Nobody is assigning themes.

I was just hoping for complete diversity in the mixes this time - sometimes they seem to overlap. But I'm probably, totally bowing out on this one seeing as how I'll be pushing a human through my loins round bout time for mailing these puppies.


message 17: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments I might be up for it again, if it isn't spring themed. We done that.


message 18: by Dr. Detroit (new)

Dr. Detroit | 6001 comments I'll participate but does the sound of guitars, drums, amps, and microphones kicked down a few flights of stairs qualify as a "theme"?


message 19: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments What if we had a common theme again, but it was one that was wide open to interpretation, like
"New ____"
You could go with New York, or new year, or songs that are newly on your radar, or new songs by old favorites, or any one of a million things, but there is still a common thread.


message 20: by smetchie (new)

smetchie | 4034 comments I like a common thread that's open to interpretation. I need guidance.


message 21: by Zen (new)

Zen (zentea) | 515 comments I'm in! This would be a first for me. Where are the rules?


message 22: by RandomAnthony (last edited Feb 23, 2010 08:59AM) (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments I like that idea, Sarah. We could even have theme options...

New ____

Old ____

Quiet ____

Loud _____

With an option for a person to make her/his own theme, of course, right?

I already have a theme in mind. I'm going guitar-free this mix. Nothing with guitars.

Oh, RA, I like the sound of that.

message 27: by Youndyc (new)

Youndyc | 1255 comments Umm, hoping not to sound stupid, but what is the shebang? Is it a music mix?


message 28: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) That's what it is, Y. RA or someone will describe the simple process for doing the exchange for the benefit of the newer arrivals.


message 29: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Whoo! Good delegation, Larry!:)

Yes...say ten people are in the exchange, YC. You send the organizer 9 copies of your mix CD (with cover art, playlist, etc.) and a self-addressed stamped envelope with some postage on it. Then the organizer makes sure everyone gets everyone else's CDs, etc. and sends them back.

Did I say that right? Anyone have anything to add?


message 30: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17319 comments Mod
Why do we call them shebangs?


message 31: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments I do not remember. But it was a good reason.


message 32: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Queen Sally named them as such.

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17319 comments Mod
I did? But why?


message 34: by Youndyc (new)

Youndyc | 1255 comments Sounds interesting - count me in.

Félix (habitseven) Sally wrote: "I did? But why?"

No clue.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments Sally wrote: "I did? But why?"

Because you don't like the term "mix" I think, Sally.


message 37: by Dr. Detroit (new)

Dr. Detroit | 6001 comments Even though most here will hate anything I come up with, I'm in.

But I can almost guarantee it will be filled with stuff you've never heard before.

Except for maybe KD and Gus...


message 38: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17319 comments Mod
I hate that kind of sentiment.

You all will hate my musical taste because it is completely above/beyond you...
You've never heard of any of the bands I listen to because I'm just that much cooler.
Well, except for these two dudes. They're super cool, like me, so they might know some of the super obscure bands that I like.

Whatcha sayin', Clark? You'll not listen to anyone else's mixes because they'll sound like radio scraps to you?

That wasn't how I meant it. I help moderate over at Rateyourmusic.com and was involved in several exchanges over there. My mixes were universally met with the sound of crickets chirping.

Cool? Hardly. I think I bought two albums during the 90's - "Definitely Maybe" by Oasis and "Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell" by Social Distortion. I haven't progressed beyond, oh, 1988. Anything I buy is either a compilation or rereleased albums from the 70's or 80's appended with bonus material. Or throwbacks to the 70's or 80's. Stuck in the past...hold all calls.

As for radio scraps, please bear in mind I grew up in the 70's, a time when we figured music couldn't get any worse. So much for prescience...


message 40: by Sarah (last edited Feb 26, 2010 08:09AM) (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments Maybe you're making mixes for you instead of your listeners?
I think some of my tastes are obscure, but when I make a mix for others, I try to ask "what music can I turn them on to that they might actually seek out or play again in the future?" It's ok to be obscure so you're not just giving them stuff they already have, but I don't see the point of wasting ten CDs if I don't think anyone will actually like the songs on the mix.
Clark, you've put up tons of awesome looking albums and playlists. New York Dolls & Bowie & Rancid & Katrina & the Waves, and it sounds like you have lots of obscure B sides and stuff.
But whatever...

Guilty as charged of trying to push my tastes on others and trying to convince them my past was better than theirs. Call me "hopeless," but there's still something about hooks and verse-chorus-verse that punches all the neurons, obscure or not.

"Obscure" being a relative term, of course.

Thank you. I panic without structure. :)

Ah, that makes sense Clark. You're being humble. Well, we all feel that way (I presume) when we submit 18 of our nearest and dearest and then wait for feedback.

Please disregard my snarkiness, I seem to be more and more evil as time goes on.

As if I've any room to talk.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments I would love a chance to hear a Clark mix, personally. Even if I hated it. :)

Remind me to pay you later, JTL.


message 49: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Forget it Jackie. Trust me ... he never actually pays.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments That's okay, I was working pro bono this time, Larry.
