many People think the mixtape is dead due to MP3s, Pandora and Spotify but folks let me tell you the mixtape still lives in CD form.
Not only do I make Mix CDs for others but there are folks who enjoy making them too!
I have a online friend Names Larry and he and I have been sending each other mixes through the mail for years. I have other mix CD trading friends but Larry is as Passionate and consistent as I am about making and sending mixes through the mail despite the rise in postage!
Where Do I get my cover art?
Often I will search my photos to see is there is a picture that goes well with the title. Other times I will go though old magazines for cool pictures. Printer ink can be costly! You can also search Google images too.
The best CDrs. In the early 90s I discovered Maxell was my tape of choice and its now my CDr of Choice!
Ideas for songs. Some folks have a break up mix or a getting over you mix. I don’t base my mixes over sad emotions only happy emotions. Most of my mixes are eclectic. Sometimes I’ll make a cocktail mix ,an oldies mix etc.
I’m thinking of a music legends mix of many of our music heroes now in the eternal Rock Band.
I hope this have inspired Your creativity. Make a mixtape or CD! Its still cool! heres some mixes from 2013!
I didnt make all these mixes in 2013 but I took pictures of them in 2013.
I hope you are inspired! Lets make the Mix cool again!
