You'll need WinRAR to unzip it, I think.

If you have any questions, lemme know.

Pretty straightforward, quick mix that I did instead of studying Anthro for a test I probably am going to fail.

NOTE: I reformatted the track names and added a song, because I couldn't believe I forgot one of my favorite Track 1's of all-time, "Indecise" by Coralie Clement.

track 1 mix [10 May 2006|09:56pm]

it's nothing super special, but i like it. secondary theme? maybe.. older songs plus whatever the hell else i felt like throwing in? also, the flow might kind of suck (i couldn't actually play any of the music because my suitemates are huge bitches who actually care about 24/7 quiet hours on final exam week, and my headphones are broken.) anyway, enjoy!

inactive? i think not [10 May 2006|09:59am]

It's that time of month again. The moon is high, emotions are all over the place, and I'm literally menstruating music. ...Ok, maybe I took the metaphor a little too far, but the point is I've got another monthly theme for y'all.

With May comes: Favorite Track 1's

Shamelessly ripping off High Fidelity, I beseech of you to make a mix CD that is comprised of nothing but your favorite first tracks of any given CD. You don't even have to like the CD, it can simply be an opener that you really love, in spite of the rest of the CD being utter tripe.

+Keeping a good flow... Which may be a skotch difficult, seeing as how all the songs are... first tracks. But I have faith in you.
+All first albums done by an artist would be a nice touch. EPs don't count... Unless the band/artist hasn't done anything else.
+As always, any announced, secondary themes are encouraged.

My Entry... forthcoming

Alllright, there's my playlist in semi-easily downloadable form. I highly encourage everyone else to start on uploading their own, I really want to listen to them, and am too lazy to individually download all the files myself/some of you have rareish songs (i'm looking at you steve).

a quick tutorial, if you wnat to share a mix:

ONE: compile your list!!!! if you are on a PC, zip it using winzip or other such program or if you're on a mac you can "create an archive" of it by ctrl clicking it.
TWO: upload your creation. my favorite uploading services are www.yousendit.com, www.uploading.com, www.megaupload.com, etc. These sites often have problems and can take a while if you have a slow conncetion. Using WWU's campus wireless it takes me around2-3 minutes to upload a full mix.
THREE: copy and paste the link for the file into this community with a list or a screen cap of the tracklist.

this will make it a lot more fun for everyone i think, and rule out the annoying use of cds. plus it will be much less social and more cold and unfeeling, which is how the internet should be.

let me know if i'm out of line here, just thought i'd mention it!

if you need help with any HTML stuff like LJ cuts or linking things just ask, i'm sure i can help.

does anyone have any graphic design experience, or simply any creative ideas for the western_blender layout? I don't really want to start promoting until there's a little more substance to the place, beit more members, a decent userinfo, or a good layout. that said, who wants to be a maintainer?

first post. [11 Apr 2006|04:43pm]

Welcome to the Western Blender!

As I may have mentioned to some of you before, I'm a terrible leader type, so for lack of anything concrete to say as of yet, I'm going to post the first theme to think about and maybe even create a compilation of:

From A to Z

Could be A-Z of songs, bands, lead singers, or even genres (Alternative to Zamfir?). Anything goes.

Random Bonus Points for:
Any Secondary Themes Within The Alphabet
Extra Playlist For Numbers Zero-Nine
Not Using a sXe band for the letter "X" (See: any band that looks like xBlahblahx.)

My contribution (with currently absolutely no way of sharing it.)

“A Glow” by Okkervil River
“Banking on a Myth” by Andrew Bird
“Circle Square Triangle” by Test Icicles
“Dance to the Underground” by Radio 4
“Emily Kane” by Art Brut
“Fiddle With The Volume” by Lady Sovereign
“Gua” by Emmanuel Jal
“Hey” by The Pixies
“Invasion Party” by Ninja High School
“Just a Friend” by Biz Markie
“Kite Flying Society” by Mark Mothersbaugh
“Lazy Flies” by Beck
“Mote” by The Faint
“Numb” by Portishead
“Oh Well, Okay” by Elliot Smith
“Please Do” by Quasi
“Quickspace Happy Song Number One” by Quickspace
“Raising the Sparks” by Akron/Family
“Sweet Summer's Night on Hammer Hill” by Jens Lekman

Later on we can figure out the specifics of song distribution, whether through real life meetings with our members on or near campus, or something online.
