Yeah I hear ya. Part of it for me is that I don't have the time or the patience to painstakingly create a list like Reggo's, for example. I spent maybe an hour or so all up on this one.

That's a pretty fucking good effort for an hour.

Dude. I thought that once before. But you gotta try.

You'd be surprised when and where inspiration hits you, and your tastes will change a little, so don't think you'll just be making reruns from here on out. And yeah, sometimes all it takes is a day of work to make one...I finished my DI9 list back in 2008, decided it sucked a week ago and wrapped up a new version that I love in 24 hours.

As for my intentions with future DIs, I have completed lists up to and including DI12. I will be literally mailing them in from here on out.

Well, fuck.

We've got a year till the next DI, right? I'm doubting my abilities to pull off a decent list again. I worked on Gloria Grey for over 6 months. I've got ideas, but none of them seem to be as good as I'd like them to be. Lookout!/Alt Tentacles Island (punk), Desert Island Live! (gonna be hard without bootlegs)...I guess I only had the two solid ideas. I'm leery about doing a punk list cause I don't want to feel like I'm either copycatting IWB or trying to outdo her. And nobody but the two of us likes punk very much. And a list of live tracks is just laughably impossible.

My only concern with making lists far in advance is that new material will come out that I'll like and want to use.

I just start another one when that happens. I'm never on the cutting edge, but I don't really find myself stressing out over DI either.

I'm thinking we'll have a mini of some sort, perhaps this summer, before we get to DI9.

Weren't we talking about a Best Of 2010 Mini DI?

Though my personal concern with that is I used a lot of my favourite 2010 tracks in this tournament's list ...

I would love a crack at Retro Island, myself. Very sorry that I missed it on the first go. I don't suspect I'll be the only one nominating it either. Hell, maybe we could get Khan back.

Oh, you'd rather Khan remain lonely and disillusioned? Figures.

I'm willing to accommodate her return to DI with a Finn Island!

... hmm, not sure that'll take off.
