I LOVE Bowie! Haven't been keeping track of the newer stuff though. Would love to get a copy of 17 from the last 15. Up for a side trade?

ANDY

Back again - you were one of the first profiles I commented on -- and now one of the last. I am no longer a part of IMP as life kind of got in the way. I notice you've used quite a bit of M83 throughout your mixes. He is my favorite at this point in time. Maybe we can do a "side trade" sometime. You've got good taste in music.

Thomas

Thank you for the wonderful December Cheer mix. It indeed brought some cheer to me on a grey day. Enjoy the new year!

Pete

I have been enjoying this mix. The first 6 or so tracks feel like a soundtrack to a really good Tim Burton flick. It just mutates from there into something incredible. Thanks for your time and taste.

Tanya

Thanks for putting in so much effort for the mixtape you sent me. You have wicked handwriting!!!! :)

David

I'm delighted with the mixtape. Thanks so much for the effort, the ingenuity, the presentation, the music.

Nick

Hey are you interested in trading with me i am new to this thing and i am interested in your November 2006 midterm election mix.So far i only have one mix see for you self .

Bruce

Love the French mixtape! Thanks.

David M

There's a band called 'The Shitbirds'? That's made my day.

Laura

I heart the "just a vertebrate" mix - one of the best I've gotten through IMP. Keep on keepin' on...

ANDY

Such exquisite cover art. Couldn't pass by without saying something. Isn't this thing we're in great?! The whole collaboration, with music tying it all up.

Cal

cool article on boy in static; definitely makes me want to check him out. i used to make mixtapes partially from my vcr and i'd switch a single cable back and forth between the right and left channels on the tape deck during dialogue parts...it was very time consuming. i don't think accidental ambient sounds come through nearly as well on digital media, though...

Ginger

Completely in awe of the January Mix. We should swap a mix, cause i'm really feeling like your January Mix should be on my pod. LOL.

Jennifer

No More Hot Dogs by Hasil Adkins is definitely one of the scariest songs ever. Good choice for a Halloween mix.
