Sounds like me!

The main thing that puts me off is the prospect of having to find time/or just having to listen to twenty other playlists or something...

Yep! Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness is 60:06. I think a couple of others were over half an hour too. The Incredible Expanding Mindfuck track that was 12 or so minutes long was by far the shortest.

Lila & I listen to them while we're sitting here at the computers. When you think about how much time goes by while your here, you get through a couple lists easily a day. Of course at 160 minutes, it is bit harder. I liked the 80 minute retro lists.

To be honest, I don't think most people manage to listen to ALL playlists. Some you know you just won't care for. Doing the running diaries in the Superthread was a helpful way of getting through more tracklists for me.

I keep wondering if we should perhaps make the 80 minute form the main form of the game, or reduce the 160 minute limit to 120 minutes.

Damn, I just remembered a song that would be awesome for the Larry DI list. Limp Bizkit's cover of Behind Blue Eyes.

Dear lord.

Though that is probably the best Limp Bizkit song I've ever heard. Their own material is somehow more shithouse.

The first minute or two of the song is alright. Then the shitty drum machine and speak & spell come in and destroy everything.

And yes, everything Limp Bizkit does sucks, right down to their decision to call themselves Limp Bizkit.

I would definitely consider shortening the time. It would make listening to the other lists easier. And I think encouraging voting even if you haven't heard the lists would get more votes. And probably get more discussion in the thread.

I tend not to listen so closely to what I'm listening to when I'm on here, though. I'd kinda want to give someone's playlist more of my attention if I was going to vote on it or whatever.

This sounds like a good idea to me, but then I am lazy... of course, when I put my list together I'll probably complain that 160 minutes isn't enough.


I might just start by chucking all my current favourite songs into a playlist and seeing what comes out of it.

And Fred Durst's voice is nails on a chalkboard.

Any band dumb enough to call itself Limp Bizkit is never ever going to make worthwhile music. It's just not possible.

Yeah, and now that we've abandoned the 2 CDs format, 160 minutes isn't all that logical. It should really be either 2 or 3 hours, and 2 would naturally be much more preferable. Those of us ready for DI V already have made 160 minute lists, so I don't think we'll change it for this upcoming edition, but DI VI and beyond should probably be shorter.

However, I still favour actively discouraging people from voting if they haven't properly listened. Otherwise, we just end up with the winner being the person whose tracklist is most mainstream and recognisable or the person who can most mobilise other Interferencers to vote for them.

Hence doing running diaries while on here.

Yeah, when you actually try making a playlist, 160 minutes seems really hard, or at least it is for me and for most of those I've spoken to. Some people have found it a bit hard to fill up the whole time though, so you never know.

And yeah, I often just start by chucking together tracks I really like that I want to expose people to and see what patterns and themes emerge from that as I try to sort it into something cohesive. My concepts generally come out of the music rather than choosing music to match a concept.
