What would you like to send/receive?: Definitely snail mail :)

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?:
Male/female/dinosaur/whatever between the ages of 20-26.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?:
I would like to stay within the US for now. (Poor college kid here, heh)

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?:
(eg. “food/candy with nuts”) Dead things. So. Not. Cool. Illegal stuff, things that would make me or you wanna throw up.

What would be in your dream letter or package?:
You can send me whatever you'd like except things from the "things I would NOT like to receive" question. I'm not picky, but anything cute/quirky/keepsakes/mixed cds/ books/postcards are always winners. And letters are just awesome.

Anything else you’d like to add?:
Yeah, I'm looking for someone who is open-minded, awesome, has similar interests (or totally different ones), someone who likes to keep in touch and not just do this for a one time thing, one who wants to get to know me more, share inside jokes/stories, someone who would like to exchange little gifts, someone fun who doesn't always have to send a letter, it can be a postcard or a picture, someone who can get creative and making the whole penpal experience even more fun than it is. Someone like you :)

This is me :)

Name: V
Age: 23
Location: Finland

Zodiac Sign:
Sun: Gemini
Rising: Cancer
Moon: Aquarius
Rabbit in Chinese astrology.

How do you identify?:
A gentleman. Androgyne, very much in to male aesthetics anyway. Born female but never really felt like one (on the other hand how should a female feel like, then? I don't know). Like to dress in old-fashioned men's clothing. I guess I'm something in between. I have reached the state of mind where I just feel like a unique entity without any labels whatsoever. Mostly drawn to men and manly/androgyne women, but I don't think genders matter that much - I love everyone beautiful and inspiring. I'm generally not very interested in sex.

Interests/hobbies:
Travelling, hiking, solitude, silence, steam engines, film cameras, classic cars, seaweed, mysticism, found objects, tea-drinking, random activism; Swimming in the lake, making firewood, learning new things, combing through fleamarkets and antique fairs; All sorts of things. I'm a bookbinder and an exceptionally lousy painter. I wish I had more energy to paint, I still have dozens of unfinished boards from 2007 or 2008. Sometimes I just can't get myself together. Drawing, painting, arts and crafts are all part of my everyday life. Things I really need to learn: Welding, woodworking, rare languages, how to use a chainsaw.

Okay all! I am making a Queermail mixtape/mix-cd/letter trade so that we can all make some new friends!

All you got to do is reply to this thread some time this week and say whether you'd like make/receive a mix-TAPE (as in cassette tape) or a mix-CD (as in CD-R).

Next week - I'll aim to leave it up for 7 days, so probably sometime around the 6th July - I will pair everybody up RANDOMLY and post the pairings. Find your partner, PM them, swap addresses and make/send eachother your mixes.

Why not add in a letter? Or decorate the mix artwork? Or send some extra little goodies to introduce yourself?

Rules: 

1) This is a WORLDWIDE trade. If you sign up then please be aware that you might be paired with somebody on the other side of the planet. If this is a problem then please don't sign up - why not find somebody closer to you and then PM them directly and suggest a private trade? I used to organise these trades regularly and pairing people who would only mail to certain countries got too complicated so I'm scrapping it.

2) Please only sign up if you can fulfill your promise. Make sure you can afford postage, have the equipment and ability to make/send your mix, make sure you have a little time to spare next week.

3) Please include a tracklisting. So annoying finding great new music but not knowing what/who it is!

4) Be aware that you could be paired with ANYBODY, wherever in the world, whatever age/gender/sexuality. I will pretty much pair-up people entirely randomly - except will aim to pair tape people with tape people, and CD people with CD people. If you want to trade with somebody in particular, just message them directly! We're all here to make friends! :)

This is just a nice way to make friends, find some new music, receive something nice in the mail. Don't be shy :)

GO GO GO!
