There are some bands/musicians/artists out there who constantly make solid songs/albums. Using Audacity, pick a band/musician/artists and create a mash-up of what you consider to be some of their greatest hits. It needs to be at least 5 songs (if you can't find 5, then they might not be as great of a band as your think they are) and at least 5 minutes, but feel free to go over if the music is groovin'. Upload to soundcloud and introduce us to your favorite band and their songs! Have fun!
