Have already received the honorable Mssr. RC's. Good work, gold star for you.

OK...I assume I am going to be doing a lot of cutting and pasting and sending other people's reviews to the song submitter, basically. Then, when I get their response back (unless I have to get it from Laz for a no show) I'll be putting together 8 or so pages and submitting them to the site.
That's the part I'm going to need help with.
Would one of you LWP compiler vets please PM me a missive on how that is done? Or would you rather I contact you when its all layed out? Any particular format/font size etc?

Trust me, I'm a slow starter but a strong finisher...I'll be happy to do more of these when I have the hang of it.

Is Mrs. RC in on this? I'd better add her to the potential guesses list then!

I'm PMing you the layout type issues in a minute.

Reviews sent. I'll follow it up with track comments as I won't be around for much longer.

You'll never know how tempted I was to put "Frankie Teardrop" on as a bonus track.

Well there's that one (excellent) track on CD2 that has clearly been inspired by the group...

I actually put some Suicide on a compo the other month for a classmate's house warming gift... I was convinced she was into monotonous girly-synth bands after professing a preference for Sweden's MIDI-steeldrum queens The Knife earlier in the year, so I thought I'd put in a few good tracks that felt connected to said group, among others Suicide's "Che" and that Young Marble Giants track you put on an LWP (and from the other side, Althia and Donna's "Uptown Top Ranking" plus a bunch of classic female acoustic tracks). In the end I sort of lost it and put on loads of sixties pop she was bound to hate, but it turned out a really solid compo.

Unfortunately, once I got to the party I found she mostly liked Aaliyah, Tori Amos and Nine Inch Nails. Which would have made my job well easier but the compilation probably less stable.

Anyway I kinda admit Suicide have been growing on me.

OK, back on topic, lads.

So far, I only have the aforementioned submissions.
This is just a gentle reminder, peeps. Papers due on my desk by the 15th.

zmama
11-08-2004, 21:33:57
Oh yeah...ummm. I'm working on it

But I ain't a ~lad~

I sent mine yesterday!

Oh, he edited the first post. D'oh.

zmama
13-08-2004, 10:27:52
I sent mine too.

BigGameHunter
13-08-2004, 16:18:00
OK...see first post (funkodrom) for submitted updates....

If I don't get them from everybody, I'm going to need to know at least who submitted what...does anyone besides Laz have that info?

BigGameHunter
15-08-2004, 20:14:04
OK folks...let's give this through Tuesday...I'd like to get as many as possible and 7 is not sufficient...COME ON!

Losers:
protein & eklektikos

Come on...I'll give you through tomorrow...comments to be sent on Wednesday...publish end of the week.

Oh come on, don't finger the deadline. We know what that leads to.

Protein only got back from Thailand yesterday, and I don't think he's even collected his CD's from Mike yet...

BigGameHunter
16-08-2004, 17:56:01
I'll finger whatever or whoever I want!

Funkodrom
16-08-2004, 18:21:26
Nope, I've still got protein's cd.

BigGameHunter
16-08-2004, 18:25:22
They've got until about 6pm PST tomorrow...then I send out comments.

Funko...do you know who is on part II? I haven't done any process of elimination yet, but I'm mainly wondering if eklektikos or protein own any of the songs???

zmama
16-08-2004, 20:47:43
Thats better! We like the hard and cruel ways that Laz set up for this. :love:

BigGameHunter
17-08-2004, 01:25:55
Well, I'll give you the hard part but I'm more tender than cruel. Unless that's how you like it, of course.

I know that none of them are protein's.

Ah, so #10 must be Ekleskskssksiosjotsiosis'?
Hmmm...nobody's seen him around? He got some good comments on his track...
OK...I guess you'll all be seeing your comments in your PM's tomorrow your time.

And let me tell you...trying to cut and paste that mess last night with a 3 year old beating the crap out of a 1 year old just two feet away was a chore of the highest degree1

Kudos to those who do this regularly...it's a hassle.

Sorry for missing this and the previous deadlne, I've not had much of a chance to sit down and type up reviews in the last few weeks. I'll try to at least get the response done in time, though.

BigGameHunter
18-08-2004, 06:51:50
Comments being sent.
LWP1:2 goes to press based on response time...let's have it done in a day or so, eh?

Scabrous Birdseed
18-08-2004, 07:05:19
Please. I'm leaving next wednesday and I think I have a track in the first section of the second CD (Might be the second one, not sure).

BigGameHunter
18-08-2004, 07:12:52
I'm not responsible for the next section...we'll need another volunteer, 'cause A) I'll be fucked if I do that again...you guys must have some kind of system, as it felt like building a scale model of the Sistine Chape ceiling out of matchheads to me and B) This was an odd, down week for me as the Mrs. and the lovely little lads are hunting out of town.

I was up until 3am trying to send...will have to retry Debaser's comments this pm. It's going fine...don't sweat it. You can do your reviews and comments now and leave them you silly girl.

And I haven't gotten anyone's responses but yours.

Scabrous Birdseed
18-08-2004, 16:04:05
They were a bit harsh, I think. Can I tone them down a bit?

I sent you mine last week. Did you get them?

Of course...I just meant the ones that have been sent last night.

It's OK. Nobody's waiting for anything.

BigGameHunter
20-08-2004, 17:21:06
Laz, did you want to respond to comments? I think what you sent me was sufficient, but as I won't be putting this together until tonight...I could send you them after all?

Formatting question--when I submit the article, how am I going to do the breaks from song/page to song/page? 8 separate articles or one with some kind of page break formatting or what???

Debaser
20-08-2004, 17:39:44
I presume you're creating it all in Word or something? When you upload it (by cutting and pasting pages from your word file) it'll give you the option of putting in page breaks I think.

Did you do an icon, or do you want me to knock one together quickly?

BigGameHunter
20-08-2004, 17:53:50
I've got one, I just don't know how to link/upload it.

But I haven't entered the admin section to try yet...I'm sure it will/may become obvious once I'm in there...attach images or something.

Debaser
20-08-2004, 18:03:08
Yeah, there's an 'upload and image' option. When it's uploaded it'll give you a URL for where the image is hosted.

Funkodrom
20-08-2004, 18:05:29
There's an option to upload the image when you publish

Don't hold it up for me. I'm happy with what I sent. If I need to sling abuse I'll do it in the "Discuss" thread.

Thanks for everyone's patience...once these birth pains are over I'll be more able to assist in future editions.

BigGameHunter
21-08-2004, 16:55:27
OK...it's all written and submitted. Have no idea how it gets published.
Have asked Debs to contribute art...mine wouldn't size right.

Scabrous Birdseed
22-08-2004, 08:32:32
Right, I'll publish it as soon as debbie links his piccie.

Debaser
22-08-2004, 09:26:25
Publish it first, then link the pic later. I'm going to be at work for at least 6 hours, then I think I'm going to be playing football so the picture will be a while...
