If you want to be a part of LWP6 reply somewhere in this thread with the phrase "Hell Yeah!".

The rules are simple:
You must pick two song (from any genre and era, and of any length within reason), and the two songs must be linked in some way. The link can be anything you like, but it has to be something that people will be able to understand when it is revealed.

Then send your two songs to me. You can email them to me at debaser at loudmedicine dot net or PM me for my address if you want to post them on a CD.

Badda-bing badda-ba, in a few weeks you'll have two new shiney compilation CDs, and we'll move on to the next part.

Provisional deadline for getting your songs to me is the 30th of November, but this is basically a random date I've just plucked out of nowhere, just say if it's not going to be enough time.

Remember, "Hell Yeah!".

Hell. Yeah. !.

Hell Yeah!

BigGameHunter
28-10-2003, 17:15:39
Hell yeah!


*sidenote...if Guy, zmama and/or any other US contributors want to send them on a writeable CD, maybe we should co-ordinate like last time? We can either work from east to west or west to east...doesn't matter to me.

Lazarus and the Gimp
28-10-2003, 17:24:20
Yup. Incidentally, anyone suggesting that a month and two days isn't enough time will be fed to the dogs.

Sean
28-10-2003, 17:58:20
Hell Yeah!

How big can the emailed tracks be?

King_Ghidra@home
28-10-2003, 18:08:20
laz didn't say hell yeah, the rebel that he is

i'm not sure what my e-mail inbox limit is, but i think a lot of people have a 5mb limit

It's a Loud Medicine account and I check it fairly often so I think it'll be big enough for most tracks. If something does get rejected pm me and I'll have a little clear-out. Alternatively if you could host your track somewhere I'm happy to download it.

Even if it's a sound file? Or one of those monkeydonkeydiddlydoo lossless files? 'Cause I'm always on during the daytime, I could set up an FTP server at home.

Debaser@work
28-10-2003, 19:00:13
How big are files likely to be? I don't think I've ever submitted a song that's been bigger than about 5 or 6meg.

Scabrous Birdseed
28-10-2003, 19:13:48
5-6 mb is about 40 seconds of uncompressed music, isn't it?

We're talking lossless here. Even half-compressed as per the suggestion by Sean that's about, er, 15 megs for my shorter tracks and 25 for the longer one.

Forget it, I'll just post them to you.

Debaser@work
28-10-2003, 19:16:38
Upload them somewhere. It's far easier.

Scabrous Birdseed
28-10-2003, 19:19:09
There are no free webspaces over 20 megs anyway. It's FTP Server@Home or Mail or possibly BitTorrent which I thoink Sean also suggested.

Sean
28-10-2003, 19:23:29
BitTorrent was more of an idea for distribution, because we could all download off each other.

How much do they give you?

Debaser@work
28-10-2003, 19:40:37
The clue is in the Url I think, I've not properly checked.

zmama
28-10-2003, 19:56:59
No ftp with that... :(

Immortal Wombat
28-10-2003, 20:42:02
250free.com gives you 250 (:rolleyes: ) if they still accept new accounts. And 0catch I believe has the same limit. Both with ftp

Immortal Wombat
28-10-2003, 20:43:40
er also, I can't this time, Laz'll be happy to hear. Probably wont be around for the reviewing stages.

Lazarus and the Gimp
28-10-2003, 20:51:52
Why would I be happy? I liked every track you put on LWP3.

*End Is Forever*
29-10-2003, 13:04:45
Hell yeah.

Lazarus and the Gimp

Sorry, you don't have that option.

Feel free to email your tracks to me, or upload them somewhere and send me a Url if you prefer. In return you will get either 1 Mp3 CD or 2 ordinary audio CDs by post. *shrugs*

Lazarus and the Gimp

Jon- send your address. We promise we won't rape you.

Can someone get me a copy of the CD? I don't really want to submit tracks or review this time though.

King_Ghidra
03-11-2003, 16:41:04
yep, np

btw how was the gig last night?

Funkodrom
03-11-2003, 16:52:51
Good(ish), we won the heat anyway. Well... it was a tie with another band, so we both go through. Apparently we got the judges vote by 100 points but they won on the fans vote which counted 25% of the points. They had loads of fans there. When they announced the winners we got a tiny clap and they got a huge cheer. Pretty funny.

MG and Morag were there and Chuckle and his gf came down from Bristol which was a nice surprise.

King_Ghidra
03-11-2003, 16:54:43
cool! :beer:

sounds like you won a moral victory to me

Funkodrom
03-11-2003, 17:04:05
Yeah. It's weird none of us really agree with the whole battle of the bands thing but we did all think we were the best band. :cute:

Debaser
03-11-2003, 18:45:07
Nice one Mikey, I have to admit I'd forgotten all about it.

How come you don't want to be a part of this LWP?

BigGameHunter
03-11-2003, 19:21:09
Isn't it obvious? He's way too popular and cool for crap like this now.

Lazarus and the Gimp
03-11-2003, 19:51:29
When are we closing the offer?

Scabrous Birdseed
03-11-2003, 20:19:08
What's the current headcount?

Deborah, I've tried setting up an FTP server (don't have router password so that's fucked), and tried finding hosting on-line (50 Megs does not allow files larger than 250 k...). I'll just mail them to you, please?

Whatever you do don't look directly in my eyes.

BigGameHunter

Don't worry, I'll take you from behind.

Funkodrom
04-11-2003, 17:43:02
You'll have to go through K_G.

zmama

I'm sure the big guy will manage. ;)

BigGameHunter

I need info on how to submit over the net
Jon Miller

Debaser
10-11-2003, 18:00:44
If you have webspace, upload them onto the net and mail me a link.

Or you can email them to me...

JM^3
10-11-2003, 18:16:46
by the way

I have a number of songs that are promising for my submissions

but none of them are linked in any readily apparent way

Jon Miller

Hell yeah, for a change. :cute:

zmama
11-11-2003, 20:23:23
Heck, maybe?

Scabrous Birdseed
14-11-2003, 13:52:02
Sent.

In case we go with the protein up/down distinction the first track is "up", the second "down".

Lazarus and the Gimp
14-11-2003, 17:10:25
...and both of mine will be "sideways".

Debaser
14-11-2003, 17:27:30
I don't think we need the up/down distinction. It just complicates things.

Spartak
14-11-2003, 17:43:51
I frankly don't understand it.

Debaser
14-11-2003, 17:45:25
Exactly.

BigGameHunter
14-11-2003, 20:58:34
OK...since my US counterparts aren't interested in train-ganging the submissions, please email me a postal address. I will send my two songs plus some others.
Thanks.

Debaser
17-11-2003, 23:53:23
Just under 2 weeks to go, and so far I've only had two sets of tunes.....

I've picked mine. I'll put them on a CD and get them to you. Not very exciting I'm afraid.

Pick better ones then!

Sorry, Big Fella. I don't know if I'll make it before the deadline so I didn't want to hold you up. Having a hell of a time finding my second song.

You could try one of these songs :cute:

Scabrous Birdseed

Hmm. I just checked and the message was too big. I’ll send two emails, each with one file.

Lazarus and the Gimp

Just posted mine, so it'll be with you before Sean finishes dicking about with technology.

Sean

Can you guys remember to include a return address too please.

Sean
18-11-2003, 22:46:44
All sent (including return address).

Debaser
18-11-2003, 22:58:52
Got 'em, thanks. I've PM'd you an answer to your question.

Sean
19-11-2003, 22:07:57
Is anybody else even considering sending their songs to Debaser?

Funkodrom
20-11-2003, 09:41:54
I'm not taking part in this one.

Scabrous Birdseed
20-11-2003, 10:16:23
You seem obsessed with that fact, you obviously need to reaffirm this belief in yourself as a non-participant. You're afraid of your true self, the LWP fan.

Funkodrom
20-11-2003, 10:44:33
Obsessed? I've mentioned it twice.

BigGameHunter
20-11-2003, 15:43:27
I've got my songs picked, but nothing burned yet. I don't know if I'll make the deadline...I now have my nephew living with me temporarily, and between wiping two asses and making sure #3 does not beat or kill my existing children "free" time is at a premium.
If this can be extended to the 30th, no problems.

BigGameHunter
20-11-2003, 15:46:18
Hmmm...apparently, I've just asked you to extend the original deadline. Ooops...it's going to be based on the mercy of international mail as to whether mine get there on time. I'll send them and if you want to wait if they're late, great, if not, you just got yourself a compilation.
Fair enough?

Debaser
20-11-2003, 17:34:24
Considering I only have 4 sets of songs at the moment you should be fine. Just send them off as soon as you can.

Laz: Yours arrived today. *sigh* If only everyone could package theirs like you.

BigGameHunter
20-11-2003, 18:31:32
Wrapped in soiled boxers, are they?

Lazarus and the Gimp
20-11-2003, 18:56:07
Nope. Fresh roadkill.

Debaser

Mmm, damn tasty it was too.

Sean
20-11-2003, 23:08:51
When and where should I send my initial comments on my tracks?

Sean
24-11-2003, 21:12:21
Less than one week to go, people.

Eklektikos
25-11-2003, 12:12:59
Still need to get some CD writing software before I can burn the disc and send it. A friend was supposed to be "lending" me a copy of Nero this last weekend, but forgot to look it out in time :bash:

Hopefully I'll still make the deadline though.

Scabrous Birdseed
25-11-2003, 12:14:23

2nd to come in the next day or so, if I can bear to do it again.

Can Debaser even play those on his mac?

Debaser

Yup, I can play them. Can't do much else though.

Funkodrom
27-11-2003, 10:31:36
I might be able to convert it for you... not sure.

Debaser

S'ok. I can just find out what it is then d/l an Mp3 version.

BigGameHunter
27-11-2003, 11:16:34

so I sent another

please tell m e if ytou received them

Uon Miller

Debaser
30-11-2003, 01:04:04
Uon Miller, I'm not sure why but for some reason your computer has taken a 6meg Mp3 and devided it into 6 1meg parts which have been sent to me individually. You have also tried to send a 12meg Mp3 which has been devided into 12 1 meg sections. These aren't much use.

I can only presume that your email provider has some sort of cap on outgoing mail size.

JM^3
30-11-2003, 01:22:17
hmm

you have ftp service right?

I will send you some info in a PM

Ah, yes. The simple beauty of an envelope and postage stamp is once more reinforced.

Scabrous Birdseed
30-11-2003, 10:34:13
I believe it might also be somewhat sensible to start a technically tricky operation a few weeks before the deadline, not three days after it, so that you can have a backup plan in case the transfer fails.

Sean
30-11-2003, 10:50:59
Three days after it??

Scabrous Birdseed
30-11-2003, 11:02:47
Well, okay, on the day. Don't be so petty.

King_Ghidra

err well if it's still allowed i'll try and do it this evening.

Funkodrom
01-12-2003, 13:39:44
From now on we should rename the deadline "the time we want people to start thinking about their songs." ;)

protein
01-12-2003, 13:48:54
I know what songs I want - I'm just really struggling to download one of them. Maybe Debaser could download it for me?

Jon Miller

Lazarus and the Gimp
01-12-2003, 18:39:43
Yes! Act of God!

I took my two choices off a home-made compilation CD. However I've just realised one of the tracks wasn't actually on the CD at all. In other words- I've got a random selection. I wonder what it was...

I can guarantee I'll like it, but linking the two tracks might be challenging.

Sean
01-12-2003, 18:41:17
Fantastic.

Debaser, just how many people’s tracks do you have?

Debaser
01-12-2003, 19:11:52
Er, quite a few. My internet connection is fucked at the moment so I'm having a hard time checking my emails. Should be fine in a couple of days though.

Jon Millar: No, not yet (for reasons stated above).

protein
01-12-2003, 21:13:54
Just enough time to sort my MP3s out then. :)

Eklektikos
02-12-2003, 15:43:22
Bah, fuckit. I still have no means of burning a cd and there's no way in hell that I can email the tracks. Looks like I'm out of this one.

protein
02-12-2003, 15:45:04
You could tell one of us what your tracks were. Not me though. I don't have broadband.

Stefu X
05-12-2003, 12:18:48
Did you get my tracksies? I'm not sure if I remembered to attach them.

Debaser
05-12-2003, 12:25:19
Stefu: Yes, though they were in .wma format which isn't much use to me I'm afraid. You couldn't re-send Mp3s could you?

KG & Protein: Just PM me the titles/artists and I'll download the tracks if you like.

Scabrous Birdseed
05-12-2003, 15:54:12
Oh come on. Surely there are WMA to WAV converters for the mac?

Debaser
05-12-2003, 15:56:15
Not that I know of. If you can find one I'd be more than happy to use it.

protein
05-12-2003, 16:03:36
I have the tracks. Are you going out tomorrow? I can give you a CD then. :)

Debaser
05-12-2003, 16:04:53
Probably. Alternatively you could upload them to some part of the sonic undermind website and I could just download them.

protein
05-12-2003, 16:07:29
I have an ancient modem telephonic instrumentation system. It would take hours.

Pete & the Pirates tomorrow isn't it?

Debaser

Yup, they should be sent out before Xmas.

Oh dear, by pointing that out you've put yourself to the back of the queue. Unlucky.

In Spartak's defence, he wasn't referring to LWP6. He's reminding us that he's just plain given up.

Stefu: Yes, though they were in .wma format which isn't much use to me I'm afraid. You couldn't re-send Mp3s could you?

I'm afraid not, I don't have any mp3 conversion programs and a rather limited space on my uni account in any case to handle the process. Can't you send them to someone else for conversion?

I can't actually mail anything bigger than 3 meg.

Hmm, there must be a solution....

I'll have another look for a conversion program...

Shouldn't Windows Piece-Of-Shit Media Player For The Fucking Macintosh be able to burn the files up onto an audio CD, which you can then save as WAV? Or maybe you use AIFF or some other monkey format.

I can't wait to listen to this one! Should be any day now, right?
Right?

Basically as soon as someone (mentioning no names GRAMERCY RIFFS) stops dicking about and finally decides what songs they're gonna use.

And I actually get round to making the CDs....

Anyway, I decided ages ago.

Debaser

I only blamed half of it on you!

For the record, Mr Riffs has been very efficient sorting out what tunes he want, and the reason I haven't sent the compilations out yet is partly due to being busy (yeah right) and partly due to lazyness. And that whole .wma thing.

That's correct.

Then you decided again. And then again.

Well I'll accept half the blame.

To be fair, the bit about me deciding ages ago was bollocks.
