I see, I suppose I'm out in that case, I don't have a DVD drive in my computer to play/rip CDs.

Alright I'm in. Will ship anywhere in the world. I'm a newbie, but this sounds fun. Already have a few ideas...

Count me in. CONUS preferred. Thanks, Asr!

You don't need to be out - as long as you let your 'partner' know, I'm sure they can buy a digital download, and send you the code. That's what happened with me last year. I sent him a CD from NZ. He bought me a digital download. And I got introduced to a great artist I'd never heard before smily_headphones1.gif

Once your partner is drawn/advised - just work it out with them.

BTW - all you guys stating CONUS only - you do realise that there are online stores that will deliver worldwide right? And there are services that allow gifting a digital download. We - on the outskirts of the globe - have no issues delivering our stuff halfway around the world. And especially as we are all one community (and it is Xmas) - why not just see where the draw takes you? And that way you aren't limiting yourself to communicating with someone only in your backyard.

Food for thought.

My thought was just that if I got someone on the outskirts of the world, I'd be spending more on shipping, and less on the gift. But, I'm not shipping this, the seller is. You are right, editing my post now!

Digital of course is an option or your partner could rip it for you and invest in a $1-2 flash drive too. International shipping via USPS for a CD is extremely easy and cheap, don't be scared to share with the world you lazy CONUSers! :p

In the second dream, I was opening a gift that appeared to be an LP, but the dream abruptly ended because I fell out of bed and hit my head eek.gif

 

Whoever I pair with, Santa will bring you vinyl of a similar artist & genre (soothing jazz with female vocals that will make your heart melt), or we can coordinate something that you've dreamed about recently. 

 

*Note: Santa was last seen on Amazon, and recalls the item he was looking at was around $35-$40. He may have thought that was a tad expensive, but he knew that he would be reimbursed with a gift of similar value. 

 

If this in any way violates the Christmas, Chanukah, or Kwanzaa spirit, I apologize. And if so, I'd prefer an LP that is similar to the [earlier] music of the lovely artist to whom I referenced above. 


Maybe I'm just different, but I'd like to be surprised with an album I've never heard of, or would never think to give a listen. I oft get bored listening to the same stuff over and over again, I love it when people introduce me to new stuff, even if I hate it, at least it's new to me!

That's also my feeling. I have in previous years received local things from my partners area/country, things I had never heard of and therefor would never have bought. Some I liked, some I didn't. I will be sending something local Danish to my partner (it might not be in Danish though). However agreeing on genre might be an idea as there are things I know that I REALLY don't like

I also like being surprised as it can be a good way to be introduced to a new artist\album that I would never have found before. However, although my tastes are very varied and open to new areas...there are a couple of genres that I just cannot get into.
