Well, if THE HISTORIAN is planning it, I'll just do it in conjunction with him. You'll have to stop on by and provide guest commentary.

For me, doing the running diaries motivated me to keep going with lists I would have otherwise given up on, and in a couple of cases discovered things I would have overlooked.

If it's not too late, I'd like to give this a shot too.

Well that was the quickest I've ever put one of these together. This one might even be a crowd-pleaser for a change.

that sounds good. kinda like my DI3 list, though I bet your artists are completely different. I look forward to it

mine definitely has some songs that few if any will like, but I'm hoping people will at least give them a chance. people probably won't be familiar with a lot of the songs, but hopefully you all will like some of them at least. there's a lot of variety. i decided for this one I just wanted to make one big playlist of songs that I like. no theme or anything.

btw what exactly is the running diary thing...?

It's when you listen to the lists whilst jogging.

It is quite a bit like that. I think you'll enjoy it. We're going for similar goals this time. I want to give everyone something to hold on to, but also challenge listeners. Obviously, if you don't like one half, there's still a strong chance you'll enjoy the other, and both flow very well. There isn't a Big Picture to see by listening to them in order, unless you count the insane amount of variety there is to absorb. It's a very good list, probably not my best, but certainly a change of pace, if nothing else. There won't be very many lists that rock as hard as the first half of mine (Smashing Pumpkins, Sonic Youth, Beastie Boys, Porcupine Tree, Muse, and Pearl Jam, all at their loudest), few will be as dark and brooding as the other half, and I don't think anyone would attempt to combine the two.

A running diary is when you talk with the maker of the list as you listen to it, telling them what you think as you go.
