I regret covering U2 that one time. He'll never let me live it down.

You can have fun without breaking the rules. If LemonMelon wants to write an insane prog rock track he can but he can't create fake artists.
Why aren't they real artists?

Why are you ignoring the rules?

sorry, but this is bullshit. YOU do not control what is accepted into the contest. when you helped out, it's not like you were a co-chairman of the competition. i'd say decisions about the competitions lie solely on axver and phanan. they decide when stuff is run, not us. if i declared i think DI5 should start today, they'd tell me tough shit, it's starting when they say so.

and plus, come on. there's a lot of people on this forum who think these competitions are taken waaaaaay too seriously. even to me, this thing has gotten away from what it was supposed to be: lists of music you'd bring with you if you were stranded on a desert island. i remember the first competition, it was so much more lighthearted...it still had some seriousness to it since there were rules and such, but it's just gotten worse with each competition.

What's the difference between him putting one of his own songs on there and him making another song with another artist title and doing it? He's still making and distributing both tracks.

no. there is no rule stating his submissions aren't considered "real" artists. he's planning on making a myspace for each artist, thus fulfilling his obligation as to making them official releases.

sorry, you're wrong on this one.

I can play repetitive arguments, too.

How do we even define real artists? This is beyond absurd.

Axver's interpretation is wrong. He is not okaying this because it fits the rules. He is okaying this because it is geared towards him. If it was a parody of a different genre he would say no.

How can his interpretation be wrong? He wrote the fucking rules.

And how do you know his motives?

By the way...who has won these Desert Island comps so far?

Does Laz enter these things? I would guess that he doesn't but if he did I thnk his playlist would be pretty interesting.

LemonMacPhisto and Phanan have won before. I don't know who else.

I won a DI spin-off once.

One is a parody of classic prog rock, one is a parody of death metal, one is a parody of Icelandic post rock, and one is a parody of indie production values and garage rock. He's really into that last one.

Phail.
