For the last year, I've been making and posting at least one mixtape per month. It's been a really fun project and I hope you've enjoyed rocking them as much as I enjoy making them. But even if you don't enjoy them, I'm not going to stop. I am unstoppable. I am a Juggernaut of mixtapery. I do not know the meaning of the word "quit." Seriously. What does that mean? Isn't that like a blanket or something?
Anyway, as fun as it is to make a mixx, (and it is so much fun) it's doubly fun to hear one. It's like rummaging through peoples' music collections only you don't have to break into their houses while they're at work and then get arrested and then go to jail for B&E and then shanked in the yard all because you wondered if they were in to Kraftwerk. Mixtapery saves lives, people.
So, I like making mixxes and I like listening to the mixxes of others. How can I hear other peoples' mixxes without having to do a ton of work? I mean, I'm gonna continue to make them monthly, if only other people would do the same and then post them on their blog. If only I could, I dunno, challenge my readers, who are an hip and handsome lot, to make a mixx a month along with me.
Enter the Big Red Robot Monthly Mixtape Brigade: a loose conglomeration of people who like making mixxes on a regular basis. So yeah, I'm calling you out, issuing a challenge: make a mixx every month and post it to your blog. Don't worry about looking cool or hip or cultured or whatever. Just put some songs together and post the mix. I'll put together a tutorial on properly tagging your files and all that stuff if you're worried about it. If you're in, leave a comment, download the icon to the right and slap it in your sidebar with a link back to my blog. Once a month, I'll post a round-up post with links to all the mixes. It will be a party of immense proportions.
Even if you only do it every few months or even once, I for one would still love to hear it.
Say you will. Do it for the children. Who's in?
