Desert Island Part Deux?

Would anyone else be up for another one of these?

I had a really fun time doing it and got to hear some great new music, and I'm sure a lot of other people did too.

It's all up to the Axver and liamcool since this is their baby, but I'll be willing to do anything to help.

And if we do make another competition, does anyone have any suggestions to make it better?

I'd be quite happy to participate, but I'm not sure if I'd want to run it again. I've got quite a busy month approaching and I can't guarantee that I will have the time to organise the competition.

I imagine a lot of the same people will participate the second time around, so maybe we should adjust the theme a little? Or at least make it that if you participated last time, you have to use entirely different material this time around?

hmmm... I absolutely loved doing this last time

Maybe we could limit it to one disc or a certain number of songs (10, 15,??)

And I like Axver's suggestion that we use different material


Perhaps people who didn't get to participate last time get first dibs on slots?


Edit: And maybe we can limit it to a specific time period?

Axver, that's a great idea. I'm making a playlist right now with about 90% different material.

Hippy, I like the "first dibs" deal but the Defending Desert Island Champ has to get dibs on a spot, too.

Maybe extend the number of participants from 16 to 24 and do the refined time scheme that we used towards the end of the tourney?

I'm Ron Burgundy?

LMP, if you want to run it yourself, I'd be cool with that.

If we have enough interest to expand the tournament, that'd be cool. Maybe we should also have a repechage for those who lose in the first round so that all the effort that goes into making and uploading a mix isn't for nothing?

This time, I'll try to make a list that's more likeable to Interference. That'll be tough. And I think limiting things to just one 80 minute CD could make it even more of a challenge for most people.

Oh, and here's an idea for another rule: only one song per artist is allowed. That could make things really interesting for some of us.

Oh shut up.

I will participate in this one, and I'll actually get around to uploading my list!

OK, the more I think about this, the more I feel two CDs is probably essential, especially for those of us with decent sized music collections. It's one thing to create a challenge; it's quite another to make it overly difficult, and I think lowering things to just one CD does that. Maybe we should make it "iPod playlists" rather than CDs though, so that we don't have to deal with the annoying break in CDs?

I've got a great tracklisting under way here. I'm determined not to crash and burn miserably like I did last time, so I'm discarding much of the unpopular prog and metal and bringing in some other personal favourites that may go down better with this forum.

I'll be looking forward to your compilation.

So, thus far, it appears we have the following participants:

1. LMP
2. hippy
3. Axver
4. liamcool
5. Screwtape2

And we've no clear decision on who in fact will run it, except that I'm cool if LMP takes over from me. I'd be happy to help out in running it, but I just can't guarantee that I will be able to do everything in a timely manner.

At this stage, I think the best idea is to switch to "iPod tracklistings" instead of two CDs but stick with the same length (so 2 hours 40 minutes of music maximum), no band may be repeated, and if you competed last time, you may not use the same songs you used before - so you can use a band you used before, but it has to be a different song by that band.

How does this sound so far?

I'd rather go listen to Blackfield, IEM, or No-Man right now!
