I hear you. Trying to write it makes me doubt the concept, but then listening to it makes me realize it.

I thought anything officially released was ok, regardless of the format.

I don't think we've ever had to determine whether tracks from DVDs were permissible or not. I deliberately avoided the issue in Desert Island III by rule 6-ing myself and using the studio version of Exit rather than the one from the RAH movie.

I am allowed to use live audio taken from a concert/music DVD release (like Rattle and Hum), seeing as it is an official release or is it not allowed?
Okay, I've changed my mind. I'm going to allow DVD tracks if they are from a music DVD.

We are going to make a Supertracklist. If any wants to help send me one or two five minute tracks. I'll put them all together to create a Supertracklist and put it in QueenBee's place. Thanks in advance.

I'm trying to make mine with the concept of the final day in the life of an innocent man who has been wrongly convicted of murder and sentenced to death, the events of the day leading up to and including the execution. But I'm having a hard time doing it. I'm having a hard time finding enough songs that fit. I may have to think of a different theme, but I like this one.
I've aborted this concept. It was too hard. I can hardly imagine something scarier, darker, or more intense than the thoughts and emotions of an innocent man who knows he's about to be executed for a crime he didn't commit. I have very specific ideas about what should be said and felt in the songs on an album with this concept, and it was just impossible to find the right songs and/or enough songs to accurately express what I wanted to express.

But I've nearly completed a completely different setlist centering arond a completely different concept. This time I started with the music instead of the concept, I just put together a few songs that similar musical/atmospheric themes, that went to the same 'place', so-to-speak, figured out what that 'place' was, and went from there. The new concept is much more abstract and ambigious than my previous one, which was simply too specific.

I don't know if it'll win this thing, or even get out of the first round, but I'm sufficiently pleased with what I've got. Although a few tweaks here and there may be neccessary.

That's what's important.

I'm going to have to bail out as well. Sorry and all that, but the competition is going to take place at a very stressful time for me. I just found out that the upcoming uni semester starts on the 6th of September (I thought it was the 1st), and that I'll need to move into my new flat in the week leading up to that date. I simply won't have the time to get to know my flatmates, get settled/focused in my new courses, AND listen to 16+ hours of music.

Sorry to hear that.

I hope the transition, move and introduction to your flatmates goes smoothly.

Okay, new plan.

3 Groups of 5 (including Supertracklist)

Top two in each group advance. (6 people)
Two wildcards (Top two not to make it using score/tiebreakers)

That's our quarterfinals.

I'm still sorting mine out. It's turning out to be a real mellow effort. I don't know if that's good or bad.

OK, sounds reasonable.

What are the groups? Do we retain the Groups of Death and Life?

Yeah. I'm just going to move the three in GG's group into the existing groups.
