Mixed Bag CD Blog-end notes & contest

So you've seen reviews of all of the Mixes that *I* received. Again, if you sent one and I didn't get it, please send it again.

Now, there was a conversation once upon a time about putting together a Best of Mixed Bag 2. I'd be willing to do that. The problem is that I'm not comfortable with putting together the playlist, based on SUCH diverse styles.

Given the fact that I feel really blessed in the vblogisphere, and I've even won stuff, I need to have a CONTEST of my own. Anyone submitting song suggestions (at least three cuts, but feel free to offer more) for a Best of Mixed Bag 2 is eligible. Kindly describe by compiler and by title and/or artist. Suggestions such as "ALL of Joe's" will be ignored. Also, if you have suggestions as to what part of the disc ("great lead-off cut", e.g.), feel free to say that. (Of course, if I get 10 lead-off cuts, 90% of you will be disappointed.)

Up to 30 people will get a Mixed CD. (All of you Mixed CD folks who participate will almost certainly get one. Think the NBA draft, rigged.)
And one person, picked at random, will get a Mixed Blogger CD, another compilation disc or two of my choosing, plus their choice of a half dozen FantaCo publications. I know I have some duplicates of some Chronicles, some Hembecks, and certainly others. Maybe something else.

In case you don't have the discs - or even if you do- my reviews (and links to other reviews) appeared on August 3, 9, 13, 17, 20, 24, 27, 31, September 3, 8, 17, and 21.

But I also wanted to give people who weren't involved in the Mixed CD thing an extra chance, since they haven't heard the music. So, you can also come up with a usable meme for me. Want examples? Something like this, or this, or this, a piece so compelling that EVERYONE will want to do it. It doesn't have to be original (but you should cite the source); originality will probably get extra points, not as many as cleverness.

The deadline for submitting will be Saturday, October 15 at 11:59 p.m., EDT. Please send your responses, along with your name and address (and blog, if you have one and weren't one of the Mixed Bag participants) here. No member of Arro Verti Enterprises is eligible. The winners will be announced sometime before Halloween. Since I've never DONE a contest before, I'm sure SOMEONE will write, "What about...?" (and I have a pretty good idea who.) I'll address it as it comes.
