I think I might wait until the next big one. I've got a playlist in the works that I planned on entering in this one, but I'm only happy with the first 2/3rds of it. It's around 140-150 minutes.

I don't entirely understand this backlash against using newer stuff. Personally, I'd rather enjoy a Mini Island "Best of 2013" at the end of the year.

That random can be a choice.

The Best of the 2000s mini DI was awesome.

A Best of 2013 would be a disaster. You and I both know it would be all the same songs on most of the lists.

I think because there's so much discussion and sharing about new music that someone interested in exploring what the last year had to offer could do so with minimal effort. Like, we already compile lists at the end of every year.

Yeah I suppose there's too big a risk it would be quite homogenous. It's a shame, because if we would have one with a fair bit of diversity and run it in December, it could bring other people's attention to cool stuff they've missed before we do our year-end list shenanigans.

I was annoyed I didn't finish it in time, because all your lists looked really, really good. LM sent me the links so if they haven't expired I plan on listening to a few of them.

I could easily break off the first half of my list and enter it in a mini-DI, since it's all a similar theme, but I'm keen to see if I can pull off a longer one, I never have before.

You're all dead to me.

Of course prog island is 4 hours a list. You put one fucking dream theater song on there and that's 2:30 alone.

This would be 90% awful and 10% how the hell did I miss this. Which is still mostly awful.


Secret Santa genre thing sounds cool in theory, but if you give me shoegazey electro psychedelic pop, I will find you and destroy everything that you love.

The retro DI is ok, although I can guarantee mine will be all British punk rock and old school ny hardcore from that era rather than anything that falls under the vague blanket of new wave.

IWB, you keep grouping shoegaze and Tame Impala together, which just baffles me. Tame Impala are nowhere near shoegazey.

I think we should have a playlist exchange as part of the 2013 year-end list. Just not in a requirement style. I know Travis used to zip up a playlist of his favorites at the end of every year. Could be fun.
