    okay i'm kind of stupid so some help from the LPA community would be nice :)

    what's a mixtape? isn't it just some songs thrown on a listening device (cd, casette tape, i-pod, whatever) and kinda like a "continuation" style thing... where one song bleeds into another ?

    if not... what is it?

    and either way... how is it going to be "released"? will it be online? or is it online or something? but judging from what everyone is saying and how they address the mixtape i assumed it was just downloadable... but correct me if that assumption is wrong. :) thx

    It's just a bunch of songs that aren't going to be on Rising Tied. They're not supposedly to sound anything like Fort Minor.

    And it should be downloadable, but as to the answer..... "mixTAPE" :eek:

    Mike has said it will be available online but don't count out seeing it on a CD as well.

    Yeah I really want to get the mix tape, hopefully it will be available on iTunes soon, like Petrified and Remember The Name are. And if those are, then that must mean that Fort Minor the album will be on iTunes when it's released. Either way, I'll also buy the CD.

    Most professional mixtapes have the songs mixed together, even if it's just a crossfade between the tracks. Since they're using green lantern just for the mixing, i'd be expecting a little more than that, he's not likely to put something out that isn't done to a high standard.
    Best way to imagine it is as a the FM equivilant of the mixtape on machine shop. It's likely to have a sampler track or two of most of the guests on the album.

    I just got the mixtape in the mail for the ST(that I didn't even know I signed up for, lol)..... i got about 8 CDs if someone wants em.... or I could possibly upload the CD to a website or something if you want the tracks. I am sorry, i DID see the other thread and it was closed (?) but if this sampler is going to be distributed, why was that thread closed? if you don't want me to upload or even talk about it, just tell me or delete this post.... don't want any hositility, you guys are the boss. but tell me if you DO want them up :) i'll be more than happy to send them to you LPA admin/mods, whoever runs the site :)

    That's the mixtape SAMPLER you received. The actual mixtape will have close to 18 tracks. Furthermore, if you upload the tracks, please do not post them here or you'll be warned.

    Warner already tried to sue us for Remember The Name so we're not gonna get hit again.

    You could counter sue them for wrongful prossecution because I think its legal if its for promotional values.

    Then again I could be chatting out of my ass :lol:
