1. Make mix
2. Make 2 more copies of the same mix
3. Send all 3 to:

Wes White
Splotts Moor Farm
Wick
Glastonbury
Somerset
BA6 8JS

Give your mix a title, but don't include your name anywhere on it

Include a letter/note/whatever featuring the following information:

1. Your name and address
2. Whether or not you can receive cassettes and CDs, only CDs, or only cassettes

Include also a stamped self addressed envelope sufficient to contain 3 mixes

If you are Ruthmoog, send your original cassette to Annar so she can make 2 more copies of it (don't forget to do 3 versions of any artworks)






I think that's it.

By December 10th. Eek it's not long now! Hurry!

Awh man. How do you make three copies of a tape without it going rubbish quality?
I'm either going to have to spend hours making 3 tapes the long way or spend hours figuring out how to get my computer to burn cds. :(


Hum. Never fear, mine shall be the best mixcdtapes evaah ^_^

surely you can re-address the original envelopes? i'm not being tight, it just seems unnecessary as you'll end up with a load of surplus envelopes.

surplus envelopes are fine by me.

but if people just want to put the stamps in that's fine too.

i agree with maz. i recycle all my jiffy bags anyway. its quite nice to peel off all the layers of addresses and see where it has been before

np. rivulets - tightrope

I like that too. It's like the little jiffy bag has been on an adventure, so you've got to send it somewhere exciting again and wave byebye as it heads off to cananada or somewhere. I'm going to draw scarfs and hats on all my envelopes when I send christmas cards, just in case they get cold in the snow.

Why can't we say who it's from? Do we all have to work it out later?

Yes. Tell me who it's from or I'll get seriously confused!! But when I get them all in I'll scan the covers and we can post the tracklistings up of thoe you've received and you can all guess whose is whose, it'll be a riot.

anonymity is also good because it'll hopefully lessen preconceptions. does preconceptions have a hyphen?

I need to buy cds.

i think it'll probably be fairly obvious which one is mine :?

Ditto. Still, I guess that's part of the fun. You and Rob could try and keep the number of love hearts with my name in on the cover to say... 3 or 4 per side? That might throw some people, I guess.

i guess my idea of stills of our "special" home movie might be a bit of a giveaway too? ;)
