I will do a combined effort with Lara Mullen if that's okay.

which will basically mean we'll be doing a disk each
(I know this doesn't meet the iPod setlist procedure, but it makes for a far more interesting collection of music)

I have all the songs I want selected and itunes tells me it's 2.7 hours long. Is that acceptable, or do i have to chop off a couple more songs?

Putting them in a supremely badass order is going to be incredibly difficult.

I'd like to participate in this since I believe I missed it on the first go-around.

It'd be great if someone could refresh me on the rules, though.

Ok, maybe it wasn't as hard as I thought. My playlist fucking rocks. So how does this competition work?

Hmm, I kept it to one song per artist (almost). That's why mine's so damned good.

I'd be up for it again.

I don't have an iPod, so I have no idea what the iPod tracklistings thing about.

It would just be a continuous playlist rather than separate discs, nothing special or peculiar to having an iPod specifically

Can you convert that to minutes? My iTunes says my compilation is 2.6 hours = 2 hours 39 minutes 22 seconds. The absolute maximum at this stage is 2 hours 40 minutes 0 seconds.

Once we get the rules fully hammered out and we decide who's running this, we'll make a proper sign-up thread, but everyone who throws their name in now will be automatically included in that.

Here's my current proposals to amend the rules:

1. 1 song per artist. That's it. If you want to include a song by an artist that is split into multiple tracks (e.g. it's from the days of vinyl and the full song would not fit on the record), talk to us and we might make an exception if it can be established that it is one continuous song.
2. Choose your media format, just make sure it's no longer than 2:40:00. If you want to stick with the 2 CDs idea of the original contest, go ahead. If you'd prefer an "iPod tracklisting" (basically, 2 hours 40 without the CD split), go ahead. If you want to use some other media format, go ahead. After all, you're the one bringing the music to our desert island.
3. If you competed last time, you may not use any songs you used last time. Repeating artists is cool; repeating songs is not.

How do you guys feel about that? Go with those rules, change and improve them, ditch them?

I like those rules, and I'll have to count up my minutes exactly to meet the mark. I may have to drop a song or two afterall, which is no biggy.

And I have a question regarding the multiple tracks issue. Can I email you to talk about some specifics?

I like Axver's amendements. They'd make the game more interesting in my opinion.

What music program are you using? iTunes can give you the exact time, and I'm pretty sure WinAmp does too.

I think rule #3 is rubbish. A song that was desert island material last time may damn well still be desert island material this time.

I don't even know if I'm going to participate, but I thought I'd throw my two cents in.
