we need to trade mix cds. right now i'm into doing themes. i've been planning a rainbow themed mix-- you know, songs with each color of the rainbow. yellow is f***ing me up, though. (i *know of* songs but i don't *have* them.)

Trish

Dear Kalyca Re CDs Vs Tapes Although I enjoyed the creative process of cassette I do love the faft editing isnt an issue with CDs and making cover art is great.I vote CDs! If you want to do a side trade please email me. trishmul77@hotmail.com Ill turn you on to some cool music! Musically yours Trish

Hannah

Hey, I just got your mix. Thank you so much!

Tony

I just picked the songs for your July mix, um... August 8th right now, sorry! I was going to just give you an exact copy of the mix I sent out last month, but that is no fun. I'm working on putting them in a good sequence, then printing up a tracklist and mailing it off to you. Sorry sorry it is so late, don't take it personally... ask my friends and family, they will tell you I am always late. Anyway, please let me know when you get it! Tony

Thomas J

Thanks for the mix, lot of new bands you have introduced me to and I always love when someone puts the ole Andrew Bird on a mix. I noticed your blog of over a year ago about tape/cd... I asked Ryan about it when I first started and he had never received a tape nor knew of anyone that had. But I think I am going to make a few now.

Juliet

There is a mix in the mail with your name on it, hope it finds you well!

Bray

Emma

Kalyca-got your mix! We'll have to do this again!

Emma

Too right-IMP and Ryan Mixtape;a concept too cool for school that might never have been realized-Had it not been the idea of our lovely and talented RM...Genius-I wholeheartedly agree. Kudos Ryan Mixtape,wherever you are...

Emma

Just posted your trademix,(May 18th),should reach you in within a couple of weeks... E

David

Thanks so much for the mix! Of course, I wasn't expecting one, so it's a great surprise. Hope you enjoyed mine. Perhaps we should continue sharing if you like? Let me know.

Emma

Brilliant idea! Funnily enough, I was just thinking the other day that getting into some "side trades" would definitely be a good thing-You can email me at emmab4@shaw.ca and we can swap particulars...

David

I'm a slacker. I'm just now sending out your April cd. But hey, if the cover I made doesn't make you laugh, then you've got to dead on the inside.

Caitlin

i haven't listened to it yet, and even though you don't recommend it, i still think i will give it a quick listen.

Martin

i tried to email a thankyou but all the variations on the URL you wrote that i tried didn't work. also I apologise for the spelling errors above..... www.myspace.com/martinart

Martin
