  2. Teas. Food. Candy.

  3. Kawaii, Disney, Weddings.

  4. Apologies that accompany your artwork.Stand behind your work as an artist. I especially dislike gender-related apologies. Seriously, I have no tolerance for self-directed sexism. If you feel the need to apologize for sending me something "girly" or "feminine," don't bother sending me anything at all.

  5. 800-word inbox messages on Swapping etiquette from members who have not been on the site as long as I have.

Hmmmm....

Early in 2019, I posted a poll to get feedback on my SwapBot profile. (Bascially the same content as you see today -- I change out the animated GIF below every few months). More than 200 people responded. The results?

Comment: Hello! I really apologize for getting to this so, so late! I hope you and your family are safe and healthy during this time. On to your list~ Sara Bareilles is not an artist I would listen to regularly, but holy cow I feel like her voice is so expressive, she really does belong in musicals! Had you seen the production this song comes from? "Willow" is such a relaxing song, especially right now (just got off the phone with the unemployment office, argh!). Sxip Shirey's song also sounds very Broadway-esque. I imagine a sequence of a woman getting back to her hotel after a day of solo-travel. Relatable! "Ride to Death" is so lovely but almost a tearjerker somehow. Lana's "the greatest"- So I absolutely love Lana del Rey and have since the Born to Die era, but this album is not enjoyable for me to listen. It all sounds too sad and melancholic for me now, and a lot of the songs sound too similar, in my opinion. Maybe I just need to give the whole album another run through again. Pomplamoose strikes again with the Sweet Dreams/Seven Nation Army mashup! Yes! Love it! I want to be them so bad, LOL. Alex the Astronaut is an artist I had not heard of, but wow I really should have. I love "Already Home"! I hit the like button so fast on Spotify. Looks like she released an album today! I'm liking Didirri's "Blind You." If you like them, I really recommend listening to Iron + Wine and Fleet Foxes. "Vanhorn" has gotten a sh*tton of airplay on our local alt radio. I love Saint Motel's music so I'm happy to see them get a lot of traction this past year. They're a lot like Fitz & the Tantrums if you haven't heard of them! "Sugar & Booze" is a Christmas song but frankly it can totally be a quarantine anthem too! Saving for the holidays... The next song, "I Haven't Gotten Anything Better to Do" is also a perfect quarantine song, haha! Anything from Celia Cruz gets an automatic like from me. As a kid, when it was a big cleaning day my mom would put tropicales music on so I've got this going while I'm cleaning countertops, ha! "See Line Woman" was a great choice to follow Celia. Fun song! "Please Won't Please"- OK, I'm gonna have to listen to more of Helado Negro's catalogue. This song is so suspiciously mellow, I have to know what their other work is like! Can't believe how fast "Suburban Trampoline Casualties" was! It was telling a story but as soon as it started it ended! No, I want more! I know "Lovely Day" from soft rock radio for the past two decades, lol. "Things Can Only Get Better" and "The Nearness of You" are both really nice soft songs as well. Chicken Soup for the Soul, if you will. The last two continue the thread of soulfulness and optimism (or so they seem on their face). Overall, I really enjoyed your list and I think I have more in common with your taste than my other partners for this swap. Thank you so much for sharing, and also thank you for condensing everything into a Spotify playlist! :)

Comment: Thank you for making me a lovely “H” ATC! I can understand how declining eyesight, cluttered workspace, and x-acto skills thwart one’s artistic ambitions too - been there myself! That’s why I always appreciate the effort!!! And this one turned out nicely - very “clean & simple” which is pleasing to the eye! Your fancy envelope that says “Enlivening mailboxes since 1981” made me smile too! Until next time, happy arting!!
