LWPIX- Songs of Innocence and Experience
Note to all-

LWP is a two-part process- a CD exchange, and written feedback on it. If you think you can't get it together to write a few words on the tracks before the article deadlines, drop out now because otherwise you'll just be letting down people are putting time and money into this.

The theme is "Songs of Innocence" and "Songs of Experience".

What you need to do-

Burn two songs onto a CD. The first is for "Songs of Innocence", while the second is for "Songs of Experience". There are no time limits on length of tracks, but don't take the piss.

Send them to me in suitably safe packaging, enclosing STAMPED self-addressed packaging to receive a CD back.

(Exception for non-UK participants- in your case, just get your CD's to me. I'll handle the return postage and packaging. Don't bother sending money or stuff, but if the guilt gets too much just send me saucy pictures of your girlfriends)

PM me if you need my address. If you've had my address before, rest assured I haven't moved in the last 10 years.

Deadline for receipt of CD's is Saturday 25th February. That should give time for all air-mail packs to reach me.

Any queries? Just ask.

BigGameHunter 22-01-2006 20:05:16

Address again...don't know if I still have it.

Are you a tit or an ass man?

Probably a spleen guy or something weird like that...

Funko 25-01-2006 10:06:56

That should be fine.

I don't have anything sensible like an address book so I'll need your address again. :D

Lazarus and the Gimp 26-01-2006 17:28:53

Suggestion- add a "bonus" track or two to your CD's, letting me know which CD they're for. There's no guarantee they'll be used, but they'll come into use if the finished versions are ofensively short.

Lazarus and the Gimp 30-01-2006 19:23:27

CD received, zmama. Many thanks.

Scabrous Birdseed 30-01-2006 19:35:47

Oh, I gotta send this, don't I?

Lazarus and the Gimp 30-01-2006 22:11:00

Don't worry. I'll pop round and pick it up.

Immortal Wombat 31-01-2006 01:06:32

I do have a sensible thing like an address book, but I leave it at home in a locked box, so I can't actually read it for half of the year. Could you send me the address again and I'll get sorted.

It's not from me Laz

Lazarus and the Gimp 02-02-2006 19:06:05


Who's the mystery American, in that case?

Mad Squirrel 03-02-2006 02:46:16

A mystery for the ages. :hmm:

Funko 03-02-2006 10:34:44

Aaaah. Poor Mad Squirrel. :(

Scabrous Birdseed 03-02-2006 15:52:00

I've mailed mine off. Look for stamps featuring cute cubs that will eventually grow up to be vicious predators.

Futher instructions in separate PM.

Lazarus and the Gimp 03-02-2006 17:31:27

Ah, I think I've worked it out now. I thought I had another stalker for a while.

Lazarus and the Gimp 06-02-2006 17:36:11

Birdseed CD received.

Scabrous Birdseed 06-02-2006 18:10:09

That message fills me with incalculable joy.

Lazarus and the Gimp 06-02-2006 19:23:38

Double your already incalculable joy by PM-ing me your address so you can get one back.

Funko 09-02-2006 09:08:00

I was planning to do this over the last few days but I've been ill. :( I'll endeavour to do it at the weekend.

Kitsuki 13-02-2006 12:34:37

Have posted you CD's Laz, apologies in advance for my music taste. One of the songs is v. emo.

Funko 13-02-2006 12:49:38

I reckon I might be able to guess who submitted that one then. :D

King_Ghidra 13-02-2006 14:11:40

funko have you done yours yet? if not, perhaps i could drop my entries your way to go on the disk?

Funko 13-02-2006 14:12:42

Not yet, was going to do them tonight. If you can get them to me sometime this week?

King_Ghidra 13-02-2006 14:19:13

what's the best way to do it? can i e-mail them to you? if so i'll do it tonight

Funko 13-02-2006 14:29:49

Yeah, that's fine. mike at

Scabrous Birdseed 13-02-2006 14:52:10

So that's six with you two then? What happened to the other two americans, the dutchman and the two brits?

Immortal Wombat 13-02-2006 15:12:11

Mine is also in the post.

Lazarus and the Gimp 13-02-2006 16:04:14

Assuming there are a few bonus tracks submitted, seven contributors should give us a decent collection.

I don't have any real problem with emo per se. It's just the more overtly snivelling ones that make me want to punch people.

Funko 14-02-2006 12:45:23

K_G's songs arrived safe and sound.

Kitsuki 14-02-2006 13:03:50

Its not snivelling, and it is a good choon.

cool :) don't know if you've seen or not, but one of them is a .wma, hope that's not a problem

Funko 14-02-2006 13:28:12

Should be fine, I'll just burn the CD from WMP.

BigGameHunter 15-02-2006 14:25:28

I'm still interested in this...but had to reformat my PC yesterday.
I'm hoping I can still get them over to you in 2/25 still the deadline?

Lazarus and the Gimp 15-02-2006 19:16:55

Carrying it over that would delay it by two weeks, as the next weekend is tied up. If it looks like you can't contribute I'll still send you a CD.

Parcel received, Mr Wombat.

Funko 16-02-2006 08:48:55

If shipping time is a problem (getting a bit tight) you could e-mail me high quality mp3s and I'll stick them on my CD to post to Laz, need to know ASAP if I need to delay though because I was planning to burn tonight and send tomorrow.

Funko 17-02-2006 09:06:40

Delayed 'till the weekend to give BGH a chance...

BigGameHunter 17-02-2006 17:31:16

Thanks funko...will do. Email?

Funko 20-02-2006 08:58:00

I have pmed it to you, but it is in this thread for K_G. :)

Laz, with this latest development looks like my CD from me BGH and K_G is going to be a little bit last minute. I will post it first class on Thursday if I can't do it before that.

Lazarus and the Gimp 20-02-2006 10:40:47

No problem.

Kitsuki 20-02-2006 11:52:39

Have you got mine yet Laz?

BigGameHunter 20-02-2006 14:18:57

OK...I'll get it out tonight.

Funko 20-02-2006 15:55:59

Great. :D

Laz? :)

Eklektikos 21-02-2006 11:41:18

I'm being a bit of a useless bastard as per usual, but with a bit of luck should have it in the post tomorrow. Any idea how much it'll cost to send the thing first class?

Scabrous Birdseed 21-02-2006 13:16:40

64 p. You can probably get away with 49 p but I'd advice against it.

BigGameHunter 21-02-2006 14:10:40

Ooops...fell asleep...if I don't get them to you tonight, count me lame! :)

Funko 21-02-2006 14:15:46

ok. :)

To be honest if you didn't get them out to me then you'd be out by virtue of the fact i'd have to post them after you sent them!

Lazarus and the Gimp 21-02-2006 19:52:27

Nope. No sign of it.

Kitsuki 22-02-2006 01:19:55


Will try and send you another CD tomorrow.

Funko 22-02-2006 08:59:18

No sign of BGH's so he's missed the boat. :(
