Won't be the same without a phanan playlist. I hope you do decide to participate.

Hopefully everyone's ready for at least a section of mid-2000s club bangers.

Yeah, I'm going there.

I think my list might surprise some people. No, it's not the oft-threatened Metal Island list. It's quite a new direction for me, actually. There is only one track I'd classify as metal, no prog, and no artists I've used before.

that's too bad, because i am somewhat of a metalhead, and a place called Metal Island sounds like where i'd like to be. wouldn't have expected that from a U2 forum tho.

i went through and listed the genre for all my songs so far, and if you get genre-specific there are very few genres that repeat. which probably means everyone will love one or two songs on my list, but no one will like all of it

I'm looking forward to discovering the new music from people. It's one of the highlights for me.

I have a skeleton of a list that I'm pretty happy with, just need to throw a few more bones and it should be ready.

lulz. i can't figure out if you're implying you've only seen my posts where i'm ranting about how much i hated something, or if you're mocking the ridiculous rem binge and sudden love affair with the national or slew of stupid threads i've started in the past about bands and albums no one on here wants to hear.




actually, on second thoughts, count me in if there's still room at this juncture. today i like constraints on my list-making. i've got an idea where i want to go with this thing.

Yeah, this.

Seriously, I'm glad you're joining. This is probably the largest group of newcomers we've had in a while. Plus, Axver has a new ally in Collapse.

i figured that was the case. i like a lot of music, it's just that very little of it is stuff people here care to discuss. or the stuff people are talking about on here i don't usually have as much to say about other than "i thOuGhT iT wAs gUd." and rage is such an easy emotion. railing against something comes naturally, whereas explaining exactly what i love about something bares a little too much of my soul than i usually feel comfortable expressing. trust me, i know i'm insecure.

i've always had problems with the DI thread because i've always hated the idea of a contest/tournament. it's going to break my heart seeing my selections get panned because it turns out to be stuff none of you actually like. plus, i get such out of control OCD making lists sometimes, and i know i'm only going to be the same way when it comes down to listening to people's lists.
