Mini tournaments...

I have a bunch of playlists that are stellar (just one disc) that I could use for such things.

The Interference Symphonic Album Game

Contestants create an album 60-80 minutes long. Each is required to have a title, cover, concept or story and has to be artistic. This game will take place between the Desert Island Games. They will feature 16 players (the exact setup has no yet been determined.) It will also feature critic's choice awards. The idea is that a contestant create an album featuring different artists. On must create a concept album that features either a story or heavy concept (ie. Pink Floyd's Animals or Passengers.) So creativity is a must. The one artist limit applies but the no repeat tracks rule does not. You would have until the end of August to submit your entry for this mini-game.

Pay very close attention to the rules when considering whether to sign up. The sign-up and stuff will appear in the master list thread. There were people who missed out on a spot for this Desert Island Game or didn't have time (Lemonchick, AnnieVox and GG), so if any of you want a spot in the mini-game just ask in this thread.

So how do you define "artistic" when it comes to this?

In the sense that you take time to create a whole creative package. Don't just throw songs together and submit it is what I'm basically saying.

AND I have to have the zip file repaired before I can extract. Very weird
What's your email? I can send you the RATM track seperately.

I'm telling you guys, Rage is gonna win me this competiton. UNNGHHHH

yeah the mini-tourney is a good idea, though I think "have to be artistic" is an unnecessary rule. Just keep it at "must have a concept or story, album cover, etc" because that kind of implies it's artistic ... and I mean... music itself is artistic

corianderstem, your playlist thus far is the most fun of the bunch

Hey, thanks! It gets mellow at the end, but up until I start to take it down a notch, I was going for F-U-N.

I think if I were on a Desert Island I'd rather have music that cheers me up than brings me down (well I guess I'd want a bit of both, but yours does get mellow in the end like you said ... ryan adams cover of wonderwall ) I'm trying to listen to these according to mood...it seems like screwtape's might be a bit more depressing, so I want to listen to it when I'm feeling contemplative, not when I'm in the mood for upbeat music, so that I don't unfairly judge the playlist.

No. I don't want people just sending in stuff that they didn't take time to think about and develop. If more people are going to experience these playlists they have to be special. This is the tradeoff you make for being able to work with a shorter playlist. The idea is that you are making a work of art. I don't know why people are so apprehensive to going the extra mile but until people aren't I have to push them there with this rule.
