Charlot Webster Makes Things.

April, you fool.

Posted in words by charlotwebster on March 31, 2010

Hello internet. Yes, I am alive, and even better… Yes the mixtape exchange is still alive!

I can’t believe it’s April in half an hour and I haven’t written here since July. I knew I was a bad blogger, but that’s another level, isn’t it? You know when you put something off, then you’re kinda embarrassed that it’s taken you so long so you put it off some more, and it starts a whole big circle. Yeah, well.. Good news is that despite my worst effort at blogging, the CFW TAPE EXCHANGE has been going strong in this internet absence. Just goes to show how the internet is bullshit and word of mouth and paper fliers still work.

This time I’m not making any promises that I will update regularly. Let’s face it I probably won’t.. But you know the best way you can see some cool updates of mixtapes? Make one and send it in to the exchange! 🙂

Looking back on my previous blogs made me feel nostalgic of those tours and me having the opportunity to litter my fliers in lots of different towns. I don’t get around much anymore so if you own a record store / distro / put on shows and want to litter my fliers for me – get in touch charlotwebstertapes@gmail.com thankyou xx

Here is a juicy tape for you, I haven’t listened to it but it’s awful pretty.. This confirms what I blogged last year that “cardboard must be in” and I guess that trend is still going strong.
