Please enjoy (what has been retconned to be) jwz mixtape 079.

By the way, does anyone understand what has changed recently with Youtube's embeddable playlists, and how to make them work again? The embeds I made for mixtape 064b and mixtape 047 no longer work. They always say "An error occurred, please try again later." I spent quite a while poking at it, but I can't figure out any way to get an embedded playlist to work. You can play them on the site here and here (modulo all the videos that have suffered takedowns since I posted them, sigh) but there no longer seems to be any way to embed more than a single video at once.

    Don't know if it's related, but if I try to click through to the actual playlist, YouTube says "You are unable to view the playlist because it is marked private."

      Ah, that was it! They were marked private, but the "others are allowed to embed this" box was checked. That used to mean that they didn't show up on the "dnalounge" page on youtube, but the embeds still worked. I guess they changed that. I made them public and now the embeds work again.

    I think it was introduced to me on JWZ's blog here... it had hand full of girls sitting around playing the telephone game which turns into making out towards the end. Anyone know the name of the song or group?

  4. Speaking of mixtapes... would there be any reason not to post the contents of all the old mixtapes? There's a few songs I've been trying to track down, but can't figure out.

    Specifically, I really dug all the mixtapes... it's not music i'd normally stumble across. :) I missed out on the first couple dozen, i think. Having all the mixtape tracklists would at least be a good starting point for getting some decent tunes.

    Along those same lines, would it be possible to restream the mixtapes? I don't know how that might work for ASCAP and such... you're the expert there. :) If it's costly, the tracklists would be sufficient.
