I've received a couple of e-mails from people wanting to know if they can still send things in or if I mind if they are late.
Since I want as many people to be able to participate as possible since I don't know when the next swap will be (I am moving to New Zealand for an indefinite period of time next month and that will make it more complicated unless someone else wants to take over mod duties), I am going to extend it for 2 weeks. In two weeks I will send out the packages, unless I know there is still one in the mail. I will hold off for it.
If you still want to participate please make your mix ASAP and send it to me. Also, as soon as it is in the mail e-mail me at brightbluestuff@ livejournal.com to tell me it is coming. If you send it but don't let me know, when the 2 week period ends I'm going to ship everything out even if it's not here yet. If you do tell me and it's not here yet, I will wait for it. Very simple. But that means they have to be made and sent within the 2 weeks; I don't want to extend to any further after that, I just want to be able to include the people that have asked for a little bit of extra time.

Everybody make a mix. NOW. Make 5 copies.
Then send them (along with a return mailer so I can send stuff back) to:
( Jen HumphreysCollapse )
Anyway I will listen to all of them and take a look at what you've posted for your likes and absolute dislikes and I will mix them up and each person that sends them in will receive 5 different copies in return.
I MUST RECEIVE THESE BY JULY 1.
That gives you a few weeks to get them done, and allows some extra shipping time for everyone that is overseas.
If anyone would be so kind as to add just like a dollar to help cover some of the shipping on my end that would be totally nice. It's not a requirement, but we'll be able to do this more frequently if I don't have to sell my body to cover all the shipping.
5 Copies. Send to me. July 1. $1. =)

Name&Location: Jacq, from ye olde England.
Current favorites: Minor Majority, Thea Gilmore, HIM, Snow Patrol, KMFDM.
All-time favorites: David Bowie [legend!], Leonard Cohen, Ani diFranco, the Bluetones, Green Day.
Most influential: In terms of 'genre' [pretension ahoy!] it has to be all that Motown label stuff, from When I Was But a Child. Ingrained in me, is that. Then there's ska-punk, think anything from a Punk-o-Rama album. Ah, nostalgia. :D
Why did you join?: olukemi made me. I have bruises from the arm-twisting, I swear!
What do you like?: God, I hate it when people say 'I like most anything' but I'm doing it too. If you can dance and/or make a fool out of yourself singing along to it, extra points. If its - to quote a friend - 'that annoying happy music' then I'm there. ;)
What do you absolutely NOT like?: Cradle of Filth, Slayer, anything with long guitar/other instrument solos. I will fall asleep and it will not be pretty.
Do you want to trade with someone with similar tastes or do you want something entirely new?: I'd like both, to be honest. And if anyone knows what they're doing with classical music or opera, you know you want to be my new best friend. ;)
Current Mood: awake
Current Music: cake//sheep go to heaven
