We're headed into the long, cold, dark winter...

...so let's do something cool.

We did this last year. It 1/2 worked.

http://forum.interference.com/showth...hreadid=151306

http://forum.interference.com/showth...hreadid=151658

Any ideas?

I was thinking albums.

Whole fucking albums.

Or a more strick 30 favorite tunes.

Ideas.

We need ideas.

If it becomes a list thread I'll fill it with porn.

Good porn.

But porn nonetheless.

i'm wondering how in the hell i missed this last time.

albums sounds good.

aside from the no u2 policy, throwing in a restriction, like perhaps nothing on the most recent couple of pages in b&c? maybe not. i'm just thinking. it's not like would be a huge restriction anyway, with the number of list threads in this forum.

Kind of like the Desert Island competition, but no competition?

Yep.

This will be work.

Lots of work.

And it will be worth it.

This sounds really cool. I'm in.

I like the idea of whole albums.

We spend the winter sharing our favorite gems.

We write about them, pump them up.

Get them out there to interest parties.

And write our reactions.

That's pretty much it.

Brau, if people end up doing entire albums do you think it would be better to just up three songs from each album (the ones most talked about in the description) so that the time and effort of uping the whole album comes after someone actually requests the whole thing?

This is what I'm thinking.

We have 20, or 30, or 40+ people pick out their "gem" of an album.

Everyone writes about why they love said album. We compile the list.

Then they upload it to send-space on a specified date. All 20, or 30, or 40+ albums get their links.

Links are sent to me, or whomever wants to help.

After getting all the links, they're all neatly placed into an email. Which is then sent to all who participated.

Upload 1 album, get 20, or 30, or 40+ albums.

We could do this all winter.

We could go with different themes: classic country, metal, soul, etc. Or not.

That might be a better idea, Brau. That would certainly avoid a list thread. There should be an obvious restriction against an artist be represented multiple times.

So when should we start choosing our album?

We need more interest. My dream on 20+ albums is a dream, but it would make it way cool.

Let's let this thread stick around for a few more days. banter it around.

Then we can start planning next week.

Unfortunately while the idea is awesome I see it degenerating into a 'let's list our top 20 albums' again like it did the last time.
