Man, looking back on it, Prog Island was ridiculous and not in a good way.

I might be interested in a mini DI, but not if it's another Retro Island.

Here's an idea: we could do a theme DI with the twist being that everybody has a different genre (or time period, I suppose).

Now, we could either do this by individual choice (send me your choice via PM) or you could be assigned one from a pool, which could make for some good comedy. We would choose what's in the pool so it's not too crazy. Personally, I think it would be more fun/challenging that way, but I understand that the lists will be better if you have a choice.

I just did my own self-imposed time period list, so I'd prefer the theme to be something more...thematic.

I'd be about the specific time period DI, where we can each choose our own, but not if it's randomized. Also, I think it'd be healthy if there was nothing from 2000 or later in it after how much brand new stuff happened in this comp. Just personal thoughts.

Let's do a Tame Impala DI with a 4 hour limit.

We also did something called "Symphonic" Island. I think the theme was something along the lines of creating a story for a playlist and then judging it based on how well the two went together?

I'm not sure, someone help me out here.

I like this. I've been wanting to do a jazz one, at least.

The Symphonic Album Game was nearly the peak of DI pretension, but it was handled properly.

I'd be keen on genre/time period, though I've essentially done a couple of those already - there was my Kiwi DI and my shoegaze list. I have a couple of Metal Island drafts up my sleeve that everybody will hate.

While assigning genres/time periods randomly sounds like a good lark on paper, I'm just not sure it's practical. What if I got soul or the 1950s? Cobbler got thrash metal? IWB got, well, lots of things?

And I've been wanting to do a hip hop one.

If we do this, no one can have the same genre, so time is of the essence on signup.

I think the cutoff would be better placed at 2010. Stuff from 2002 is a pretty long time ago, considering some of us were in our mid-teens at that point.

 
And some of us were in our early 30s

Let people pick a genre/time period OR pick being given a random genre/time.


I want to be given one.
