I can’t get to sleep
I think about the implications
Of diving in too deep
And possibly the complications

Especially at night
I worry over situations
I know will be alright
Perhaps it’s just my imagination

Day after day it reappears
Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear
Ghosts appear and fade away

I love the CD Man@Work by Colin Hay. I'm learning to play Overkill on guitar. So far it sounds like crap but mark my word...one day I'll get it.

Anybody want to start a CD tree? We used to do it all the time in college (but with tapes). Basically, you make a mix-CD of a bunch of your favorite songs and you make copies of it for anyone who gives you a blank CD. I haven't thought it all the way through because the international postage may be high. Anyone interested should send suggestions on how we could make it work.

P.S. eM, your first one is complimentary seeing as I have it made and haven't sent it.
P.P.S Rat, I can send you Sweet Thing by Van Morrison!

OK, I have an idea. It means a lot of work for me, but I'm willing to do it.

All of you compile your CDs, right, and then you send them to me - along with blank CDs and lots and lots of money for the postage. And I'll make the copies and send them out again to all of you!

Let me know if you work something out, Mint. I'll consider joining the tree - if only to increase my MK (music knowledge).

Jay: Your plan seems a little fishy to me :S Specially the "lots and lots of money".....

Love the idea of a CD tree. Within the US would be a good place to start. By the way, do you like Aussie bands, or is this an eighties thing?

Yay a CD Tree !! what fun !!

Ok I have a suggestion, since the international folks are a lot less in number than those in India, The people abroad can send the whole bunch of CD's to one person in India and that person can distribute it among the others here.
Similarly one person in India would collect all the CD's here and mail it to one person in that country and that person will distribute it there.
The money part I havent figured out as yet.
But Blank CD's are damn cheap in India. Like a 100 CD's cost like 1000 rupees which is like $20 ! So thats not a big deal.Its only the postage.

Or we could just go with Jays plan barring the lots and lots of money part ;P

Mint - you play the guitar !!!!!! how could you not mention it in your 50 things about yourself post !! And yes yes I want Sweet thing.

Rat says that the whole point of this is to broaden your music interests. Right? So why bother with postage costs etc., just make your CD, make copies and post it to everyone else who agrees to be a part of this tree and they will send you their music in return. This way, everyone incurs postage costs and CD costs but everyone also gets new music CDs in return. Ofcourse, whether you want to send EVERYONE else (in the 'tree') your CD or just a select few, is a different question altogether.

i find the gmail idea pretty suitable..y not use the net and eliminate costs...a usb flash drive or portable hard disc etc. would ensure you hav music on ur home system for free...what are the objections and/or primary reasons for not doing this thru gmail or whatever other service gives u 2gigs or so of space..one cd only takes abt 700 megs.
