Hey, hey, hey, we're back! So it's right around the amount of time we usually announce the next mixtape since the last one, I figured, better make the thread! Carson, are you up for running it again? Deadline looks to be September 16th, everyone cool with that?

EDIT: Carson is running it again, so submit your stuff to him (Homer)

Info: (even though you probably know the process by now)

What is it?
A collection of mp3's performed by members of the forum. Basically a .zip/.rar file that people can download & listen to.

How many tracks?
Around 15.

What are the qualifications?

Um, must be member of the forum, preferably posts in not just this forum. Does not have to be a band.. Instrumental is okay, too.

Let's just say that as long as it doesn't literally hurt my ears to listen to it, I'll okay it. Oh and as much as I love Pay The Man, 13-minute tracks rarely work so the track should be within considerable limits.

Doesn't have to be a new track, you could have recorded it in 2006 as long as it's by you/your band.

I would love if it was more original songs than covers but I guess covers are okay, too. Let's say you have an okay original song and a kickass cover; please submit the okay original song. The idea is to get your voice heard! :]

I can't play an instrument or sing but want to participate, can I?

Sure! I don't have Photoshop or PSP so it would be totally kickass if somebody with l33t photoshop skillz could make an album cover/track listing to the album!

Another idea is for somebody to record a spoken word intro ala Americana or Ixnay or Smash. Hey, if it worked for the Offspring, it can work for us!

How do I submit a track?

Upload an mp3 on yousendit.com/sendspace.com/megaupload.com or something similar, PM Homer with the link, track name & your band name/artist name - otherwise I'll just credit your username on the forums as the artist.


Any deadlines?

Try to get them in by September 16th ..unless you guys feel that's way too early. Again I remind you it doesn't have to be a newly made track.

When all tracks are submitted, I'll listen to them and form a preferred order of listening (which may or may not suck) and pack them in a .rar/.zip and upload. :]

Anything else?

- Largely depends on the number of submissions but for now: 2 songs per artist/band, and I'll probably pick one of those.. Or send just one song if you feel confident enough in it.

- Genre can be anything but I would ask you to submit an approachable track; an 8 minute noise track might be the best thing you've ever done but will the others get into it?

I decided to take advantage of the fact that I've become very musically determined in the last few days, along with the fact that it's been 6 months, so I'll have a few songs to choose from this time. I'm looking forward to this one, we improve it every time :D

I'm going to have to overcome my tenancy to freak out and upload a new song the second it's done, gotta keep it a secret and that way I won't have to rush anything :p

Homer

I'll run this shit again.

Basically, send your mp3 (preferably with a bitrate of 320kbps) to me along with the artist name, song title, and lyrics.

I'm in. I hope I can manage to get some new stuff done until then.

I'll be submitting as well, of course~

I've actually been waiting for the next mixtape to be announced....I have some weird ideas I want to try out :D

I will also be submitting. Hopefully, I will have finished at least two songs by September, 16.

If I can find the time, I'm in. These mixtapes have always been the shit, and we've always been progressing. Can't wait to hear what it'll sound like.

Do you guys think it would be worth it to have a thread advertising this in GC? Just for people who maybe don't visit your band as often but might want to participate.

I think we've had that idea before. I'd be still all for it.

I think it's a good idea. Not many people seem to visit the "your band" subforum.

I was just coming to confirming that I am. I can understand why you wouldn't be able to, though.

Thanks for caring :) If it makes you feel any better, I'm looking forward to giving the mix a spin and commenting on all your efforts, as usual.

Oh well, I must finally be in this one! I will try to rush the boys from my band to record at least one song until that date.

And I am sorry for Brianna. Heh.

Hey, you should totally collaborate! That would be awesome. I think there's been like maybe 1 or 2 collaborations EVAR on any of the BBS Mixtapes I've seen.

I think I'll be good for this. I didn't expect to be, but I hit a creative upswing and finished several tracks recently. I'll have to decide which to submit. Maybe I'll just try and submit something different from what I've done before.

JohnnyNemesis

Homer

Oh right, we're still doing this.

Well, mine's gonna top the one I did for the last Mixtape.

Ryder1234
09-07-2010, 02:15 AM
I'm either gonna bust my ass to make a song in time, starting tomorrow so I know I have enough time to make it rockin', or I'm gonna be lazy and submit one of the songs I made last month, that only like 2 people have heard. Either way, it's gonna be all good!

09-07-2010, 06:03 AM
I would like to be in this!

Although I publicly showed everybody the last song, i'll send homer a new one ;)

dff_punk
09-07-2010, 06:33 AM
Send your song to Homer, dude. Now your song is public and noone will be surprised when he/she hears it on the mixtape ;)

Homer
09-07-2010, 03:23 PM
I would like to be in this!

My band is Lost In Verona

Song is called "Just Like You Mean It"

http://www.shoalhaven.net.au/~gizmo359c/media/Lost%20In%20Verona%20-%20Just%20Like%20You%20Mean%20It.mp3

Well, this is unfortunate.

Try and send me a different song, I guess, now that you revealed it to all 5 people who are going to download the Mixtape.

Ryder1234
09-13-2010, 05:04 PM
I have a feeling we don't have enough songs yet buuuut I can't say for sure cause I don't have the songs. But I get a feeling that you all should get to work! I'm still undecided as to whether to submit a newish song or a new song, so I'll submit today or tomorrow.

Homer
09-13-2010, 05:30 PM
Yeah, I've only got one submission.

HURRY YOUR ASSES UP!

JohnnyNemesis
09-13-2010, 06:51 PM
Sending mine in in literally less than 30 seconds.

EDIT: Done!

Static_Martyr
09-13-2010, 06:57 PM
I'll be sending mine tomorrow. I've been lazy about recording the vocals, but now everything's recorded and all I have left to do is mix it all down.

...which I am too lazy to do right now (bedtime!). So tomorrow, definitely :D

09-13-2010, 06:58 PM
Awesome! It's coming together :D

Working on something super different for me. I have two other songs prepared to submit if this falls through, but I'd like to try and finish by the night of the 15th or 16th and see if it works out.

I've been kinda "whatevs" toward pretty much everything lately, but I've got an instrumental that only needs a couple more things added. I think I can muster enough energy to do that.

Can I submit my song tomorrow?
GarageBand crashed on me today (I didn't make that up) and ca. 1/3 of my project is completely gone :mad: I'm too pissed off to re-record today.

I know it was extremely stupid of me to not save every 10 minutes or so, but... oh well, just FUUUUCK :mad::mad::mad:

EDIT: Submitted

T-6005
09-18-2010, 12:25 AM
I count six (perhaps seven since Homer wouldn't post that he'd submitted to himself). Hopefully there's a submission or two that hasn't been posted since I'm looking forward to hearing this.

Homer
09-18-2010, 03:39 AM
Yeah, I've only received about 7 submissions. So, it's looking more like some sort of EP Mixtape.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER

If you're not finished recording/mixing your song, don't worry! The Mixtape probably won't be out for another 2 weeks, so if you submit something before it comes out, it'll most likely make it on to the Mixtape.

Finished my song today and going to submit in a few minutes. So far this looks like a really really promising mixtape.

Also, please remember to send me your lyrics, please.

I sent you mine in the actual message this time, instead of in a downloadable text file....so no excuses for missing them this time!!

(actually I don't care, I'm not particularly fond of the song I chose this time anyway....)

Static_Martyr
10-09-2010, 05:41 PM
Fun fact: I have recorded almost an entire EP in the time it's taken this mixtape to come out :D

....sadly, every song on that EP is better than the one I submitted for the mixtape....is it too late to change my entry? :o

(Nah, I keed....I'm sticking with the one I sent in....if I don't, I'll never use it for anything else so it'll just be a waste.)

Homer
10-10-2010, 11:20 PM
I'm just really, really lazy.

But seriously, I'll try and get it out this week.

Static_Martyr
10-13-2010, 09:01 PM
Just finished recording the second-to-last track on that EP....I just have a short intro song (which will take like 20 minutes) and then one song that I just came up with at the last minute.

After that, I will have *officially* finished an *entire EP* (7 songs!) in the time between the deadline and the release date for the BBS mixtape.

The race is on!! :cool:

Still I would love to listen to the mixtape sometime soon... as in... now?:)
