Looks like the theme was just mini desert island. So...no theme. I don't even remember this.

Ah, this isn't really a strict genre DI though, it's just that some chose to go that route.

Can't believe I forgot about that, there were some good lists in there.

I think it was due to continuous discussion regarding the length of playlists, so we just did a straight Mini Island.

Of course, we're still discussing it.

I'm down for anything really. Next time I'll avoid new songs and an indie sound. Maybe an alt-country mix? May start working on that now.

I know that that particular mini DI killed my soul, as far as selecting songs is concerned. Please, please, never change it to an 80 minute limit

So we've done 80 minute DIs with no theme in the past, but people want to continue doing those while limiting standard DI to 120? That shit is silly. What the hell is the difference at that point?

I hope no one got the impression from me that new songs are a bad thing . They really aren't. It was just coincidence, I think, that the first few lists were all very heavy in recent music. They were all still great lists, though. Gump, yours was one of my favorites.

An alt country list would be fantastic, gump. Please make that.

No no, not at all. It's just that I feel the two times I participated in DI I gravitated towards newer songs. I'd like a different approach next time. And thanks! I liked yours a lot too - had you in 6th place.

I might try that. I guess it will depend on the length we decide to go with.

This made me start to listen to Anodyne. So so good. Sometimes I imagine a parallel universe where Tweedy and Farrar kept playing together.

It's all the same chill, drone without the dissonance of actual shoegaze, boring snoozefest. But ok, I'll change my overreaching classification of the stuff to dreamy psychedelic electro pop. Better?

Ah geez, I'm sorry I was so half arsed with getting the rankings in. But I really enjoyed all the lists, it was an incredibly solid competition and I discovered some really great stuff from you guys. Thank you so much for doing all this LeMel. Congrats pahana, your list was killer. And big thanks to everyone who voted me up high, I really wasn't expecting that.

Pahana, your list was not bad. Sorry I didn't have time to comment earlier but I was the one who asked ElMel last minute to push you up the rankings. You owe your victory to me! Being the 80s dude that you are, it shone thru on those first few tracks. That first track was excellent, man! Where do you find this stuff? It sounded so typically 80s but yet I had never heard of the song or the band before! Enjoyed parts of your list and liked the second half more I think. Good job!

The most hilarious thing (to me) in this whole competition was Laz's list and how my own list featured right underneath his in the original thread! Oh, the irony.
