I'll probably wuss out and just use the first paragraph, but the story will be posted in my journal for future generations.

Except for the part where I say he can. It meets all the rules.

Yes they are - or they will be.

The only requirement is that they be officially released - and that has included MySpace releases. Pure Reason Revolution's Victorious Cupid has been used. Once he puts the songs on MySpace, it meets the rules and it's in.

The artists aren't real though. I will oppose this.

Anyone can be an artist.

I might make my own official release for my DI playlist.

It's created by human beings, for human beings. It's all very real, and the artists are entirely legit. How more legit can you get than having the songs available for purchase on myspace?

Too bad. I wrote the rules, so I think I know what I meant when I wrote them, and this meets both letter and spirit of them.

And by your logic, we better disqualify every Porcupine Tree song, and in fact anything involving Steven Wilson. After all, Porcupine Tree began as a joke band - astonishingly similar to this scenario, actually. Every release up to Up The Downstair was Steven Wilson taking the piss, making music to accompany the legend of a mythical seventies prog band he created. He never expected Porcupine Tree to become what it is today.

Exactly. And wouldn't it be surreal if one of these songs were to inadvertently become a hit on myspace?

I don't care if I have to make an EP for each one of these artists and make it available for purchase. I'll do it.

I just about added a sentence along the lines of "who knows where LM could go with this"!

EPs would be awesome, especially for the first two bands.

And now I must run off to uni as I'm late already. See you folk in three hours.

Well you are wrong. I will not let LemonMelon's entry compete. Last time I checked Phanan and I were running it not you. When that happened the rules became a matter of what we believed them to mean. It is up to Phanan and I. Not you.
