Hello. Forgive the spammy nature of this, but I've got to spread the word. I went a bit IMP fan-boy and made an IMP group on last.fm. Don't know if you use it at all, but I really like it - I've gotten into it over the last 6 months so much so that I combined my love for IMP & L.FM and made this: http://www.last.fm/group/International+Mixtape+Project. I started a topic thread that I hope will be a pretty good start to the year and a nice discussion. Hopefully we can get some good use out of it, there's a lot of potential in it I think (but then I would, I made it!!) MxBx

Hi Steven Jst to let you know your August mixtape is currently winging its way to you! Hope you like it!! Love Sheonagh x

Richard

Wicked i will look forward to tuning in my hearing aid to that.It would be nice to get a mix as i'v not recived one for about three months now:(

Mike

Hey Steven: Got the mix yesterday. Thanks!

ANDY

Oh -- one more thing -- I think you should listen to Andrew Bird. I'm in love with his mad violin skills. Bird's the word {!}

ANDY

PPS - I don't know how you feel about New Order - (noticed "Age of Consent") I've recently made a New Order compilation. Would you like a copy?

ANDY

I am pleased of such a great response. And that photo in question - well - spur of the moment. Once it was gone, it was gone (high hopes cannot be reversed) - Much love, Andy Ps. - Furthermore, your photo diary of meals eaten everyday is intriguing - not to mention the etiquette handbooks.

Suzanne

Hey, thanks again for the mix!

Daniel

Thanks for the feedback!

Daniel

Hi, Steven. I've just started making and sending mixtapes that are more mixed than just songs separated by a gap of a second or two. Not sure if people are into that sort of thing, so I wanted to get your opinion. Regardless of whether you like the choice of songs, is it alright to crossfade? I'd like to get your thoughts. Thanks!

Jon

Hey Steven~did you get a mix out to me? Hope you are happy and well. What started the meal diary? Jon*

mia

no more dessert. but i just destroyed my ear after popping an acne in it so i have to go wash the blood off. maybe soon i'll come up with my real pictures.

David

Every meal since 1984? Honestly? That's wonderful!!!

Valentina

I saw that biomix mix and I LOVE it. Some of those songs could have been on my mix, if I had remembered them. Mocedades, Allen O'Day, Hall & Oates. HAH! I am also curious about your photo diary of your meals. How and why on earth did you ever get started on that? Do you have them on a WEB site? Are they in scrap books?

Cornelius

That's the kinda ration I likes with me pumpkin pie too!

Valentina

Glad to hear you enjoyed the mix. Your comments make me wonder what music is on your bio mix.

Valentina

Say, I am working on your March mix, but it is taking me a bit of time - I am taking up the challenge that Ryan Mixtape put out - the autobiographical collection. It is more work than I imagined. Will get it in the mail to you SOON.
