Anyone for a Desert Island?

So, er, I don't come here as often as I used to. But I'd like to. And a DI would be a wonderful way to reconnect with y'all.

I definitely have the listening time available for this. And I've been meaning to make a new list for years now. Anyone else as keen as I am?

Good to hear from you mate. Hope life is still treating you well.

I'd be keen. I'd be much more keen if it was a 60/80 minute one, though.

Wow, weird timing - just half an hour ago I was transferring playlists to my new computer from my old one and spotting the DI lists made me think it had been a long time since we'd had a DI.

However, it also made me think that my passion for DI is probably gone and I wouldn't compete. If I did, it would only be for a 60-80 minute one, but I'm fairly sure I'd sit it out. Last time I regretted competing just because my heart wasn't in it.

Oh hell yeah, was just thinking of a future DI today.

Definitely keen, inclined to agree with the above two guys but maybe up to 100 minutes?

I'm keen for whatever - long, short, don't bother me. Passion's back. Listened to my list that won the thing a few years back and I got tingly feelings.

I'd only be in for a full length competition at this point. I have a backlog of lists that are at least 40 minutes longer than what is being suggested, and I'd like to use them. Besides, my single disc lists always feel half assed to me, probably because they are. 60 minutes is short even for a single genre.

What I suggest is that we have whatever length we want as long as it isn't longer than the traditional two disc format, and no shorter than an hour. Call it 60-160. Part of the competition is deciding what works best for your list, so we should leave that as open as possible. People have been doing that for years, only now we can encourage shorter lists.

And by not at all, I of course mean absolutely, and wish to provide you all with the ear rape that you didn't get the last time I played.
