To Do List.

#1. Come up with a tag line. Something like - The unofficial blog of ccMixter.org. But better.

#2. Change the Top Banner.


Any suggestions / help would be most excellent. : )

"Where we mash us, cut up, and mix it up about ccmixter.org"

It should probably mention something about the non-official part. But this gives you an idea of what it's going to look like.

Thanks Gurdonark. : )

Shouldn't it be:
Where we mash up... instead of us?

Are you able to add an audio loop to the page? I was thinking that it might be cool to have a stand out sample (something immeadiately identifiable as ccMixter related) and we all do a very short remix loop that would play randomly every time one visited the blog. The key here would be to make sure the remixes made sure the sample stood out so it sounds more like variations as opposed to flat out remixes. Kinda like a rotating theme song. Maybe.

omg, please don't have it play automatically (like bgsound attribute)

you can do it by putting a link to the mp3 in the page (like in the sidebar) and then include the javascript here:

http://del.icio.us/help/playtagger/

the rotating part would require custom code which I could help with if you want.

fourstones said...

also a "recent comments" thingy on the side bar would be cool

teru said...

Why is the To Do List growing? ; )

PatChilla said...

Teru - Because in your words, "It will be fun and productive" :)

Fourstones - "the rotating part would require custom code which I could help with if you want." - I would probably need more than a little help as I must confess my code illiteracy.

Another angle for the music pieces could be to just have short pieces that involve the tag line. That might be easier as far as production is concerned.

teru said...

Damn. The old - "in your words" comeback.

I'm not sure how to upload the mp3s -- but assuming some magic happens there... (teru?) as a last resort we could always just post them to our various accounts on ccMixter.

I could write that script that sits in this web page with as list of the mp3s and randomly picks one out of the list to display on the side bar. Next to the mp3 name would be a little '>' (play button) that would immediately stream it.

every time you refresh the page a different one will show up in random order.

teru, do I have access to the template that's generating this page?

teru said...

As far as I know everbody has access to everything. If not let me know.

PatChilla said...

Fourstones - That is the definite solution!!!! You da ....... I swore I never use that phrase!!!!

teru said...

So I installed a recent comments thingy but I messed up the font sizing for the whole page. Everything looks smaller now. Sorry.

Not to be lazy but I think it looks OK. Huh? Or should I set it back?

teru said...

I just noticed that it lists in order of comments on the most recent post not the most recent post over all.

That bites.

It all seems to be coming together nicely
