This is a good idea because we don't put nearly enough emphasis on showcasing the best songs of the year, just albums.

I'm sure LMP will be all about this.

You're right, but all that beach house wild nothing stuff kinda is, and I lump them all into the same category of bands from last year that everyone here except me loved. I know, none of them put out their first album last year, but they all put out albums last year and everyone here that wasn't me thought they were the greatest. They fall under the psychedelic part of that bullshit made up genre I've been calling all those bands.

I recall you not being interested in it, and then regretting it later. It was quite fun indeed.

I think a lot of us could make good lists for that. Only 8 people participated and half of that small group are still regular participants.

But there's nothing stopping someone from picking that scene for their list, so it's all good.

You are correct.

Since Ash inquired, my idea for monthly mixes would be similar to DI in the submission process. Send the person in charge a list and link to send out to interested parties -- covers & track notes are also welcome. 1 CD length max.

There wouldn't be a limit to who could submit, or really verification that people have listened to it. The focus would be getting music out there and hoping to generate conversation from there. Each month would have its own thread. Does that sound intriguing to any of you?

I don't mean to take away from the DI tournament by any stretch. I just think that there should be an outlet for sharing tracks/tastes outside of the competition format. If no one is interested, I'll quit posting about it.

The last mini DI was a pick-your-own-theme type, as I recall.

I think that's something I might participate in occasionally, but I don't think I'd be a regular contributor.

The last one was Best of 2010, I thought. Did we have one after that?

The only threads you've started since the last DI are just random unrelated threads. Before that, is Best of 2000s... (Not 2010, my bad). Did someone else run it?
