View Full Version : LWP 7 Part 1 Deadline - 8th August

Right, everyone has their CDs now (actually I still have Debaser's and Protein's, but they are in Reading for whenever they can be arsed to pick them up...). I'm willing to compile the first batch of reviews because I think I'll be too busy to do any of the later parts.

There are 15 tracks on CD1, I suggest that for Part 1 we review songs 1-8 and for Part 2 we do 9-15. Feel free to write all of your reviews now, you can just send the later reviews to whoever collates part 2 when they are ready for them.

For those of you new to reviewing I suggest you go to the Counterglow homepage and look at some the past Listen Without Predudice articles for an idea of the kind of thing we are looking for. If a track happens to be one of yours just say "Mine" instead of reviewing it. Once the deadline passes I'll send out peoples comments about your track to you and you'll have a few days to respond before I publish the article.

As with the CD submissions for part 7 it's a zero tolerance deadline. I will send out comments on the 9th August to track owners, any reviews that don't get to me by then will not be in the article. It's a short(ish) deadline because from experience the longer you give people the less urgently they take them. I don't think it's too short, you still have two entire weekends to work on them. Feel free to get me your reviews sooner than that, it really helps out on collation if I don't have to do it all in one go.

Also, if someone wants to make an icon? Debaser or Scabby?

I can't at the moment. No photoshop on this machine.

Debaser
28-07-2004, 11:35:05
Yeah, I'll do them. I've decided they're going to be themed around the Carry On films of the 60s and 70s.

King_Ghidra
28-07-2004, 11:40:12
no i'll do them, and i've decided they are going to be themed around me superimposing pictures of debser's head onto stills from hardcore gay pornos

Funkodrom
28-07-2004, 11:50:09
Well I guess you are the only one here with the hardcore gay porn to achieve such a thing.

Debaser
28-07-2004, 17:12:08
And the fan-boy obsession with pictures of me.

BigGameHunter
28-07-2004, 17:29:11
I knew I shouldn't have sent KG those pics in confidence.

Debaser
28-07-2004, 17:35:02
You have pictures of me too???

BigGameHunter
28-07-2004, 17:52:30
Don't you remember?
I'm still chafed from that 5 hour ICQ session...

i've pretty much written mine, but i still intend to flirt outrageously with the deadline, bwa ha ha!

I listened to both CD's again yesterday...#2 is now my clear favorite of the two. #1 seems oddly reminiscent of a bad drug comedown.

Foetus
03-08-2004, 23:28:03
OK, am I still eligible to comment if I wasn't involved in track submission? If so, I have some review material. Now how do I get them to you?

Funkodrom
04-08-2004, 07:42:24
Sure, send them in a PM to me.

Scabrous Birdseed
04-08-2004, 12:48:20
Only... 24 hours to tulsa...

The story so far.

Cool people:
Funkodrom, Scabrous Birdseed, Lazarus and the Gimp, Resource Consumer

Losers:
protein, Debaser, King_Ghidra, BigGameHunter, zmama, eklektikos

Protein has an excuse (kinda) 'cause he's in Thailand and his CD is in my lounge.

zmama
04-08-2004, 14:42:41
I have started them. Theres at least one line written for every song :D

Probably tomorrow

That's more than Jon Miller wrote last time. ;)

Funko- I'll send you comments on my own track up front, as I'm on holiday from the 8th.

Funkodrom
04-08-2004, 16:24:11
Cool, thanks.

BigGameHunter

Omigod! Only four days to go! Omigod! Omigod!

I think my ideas have percolated enough now...I have a theme and everything...should have them to you shortly (as in by the 8th).

zmama

I've got a five-word review lined up for one of the tracks in the next section.

Lazarus and the Gimp
04-08-2004, 19:51:41
Mine are all fairly wordy. And alarmingly positive.

BigGameHunter
04-08-2004, 20:17:47
Back on the lithium then, are we?

Funkodrom

Let me guess:

'Even better than M People'

Surely Kool_Gang?

Funkodrom

BigGameHunter
06-08-2004, 18:19:31
Ha ha...I'm lame...will be out quite late tonight, won't be in all day tomorrow...looks like I'll be doing this at the 11th hour...sorry...have had unexpected guests/other issues all week.

I'll make a thread for Part 2 submissions rec'vd.

Sent late last night.

Article ready for publishing if anyone has an icon for me.

Didn't laz collect a repository of back-up comments in case one was missing?

Debaser
10-08-2004, 10:29:36
Yo.

Just seen this. Gimme 15 minutes....

Yeah, but he won't be on until after work, if he has protein's comments he can give me them then and I'll add them.

You sneaky looking before it's published git. :)

I didn't even need to go through the Admin system, the article id is totally obvious. :)

I know. :)

Scabrous Birdseed

You should have called it "moose_madness321" or something.

Funkodrom
10-08-2004, 10:46:20
There's already a Moose Madness review called that.

Not quite...Laz is away for the week

Scabrous Birdseed
10-08-2004, 10:52:23
I found the article superego rather more surprising though.

Funkodrom
10-08-2004, 10:57:02
Oh yeah, I knew he was away, that's right. That is in fact why I decided I might as well publish it today.

What happened to the carry on theme? Early revolutionary Soviet poster art is too cool an idea for something this puerile.

Debaser
10-08-2004, 11:16:08
Oh yeah, I kind of forgot. Part two can have a picture of Sid James driving a tank if you like.

I typed "Propaganda Poster" into google images and stumbled accross a Russian looking site which is half cold war-era military stuff, and half really really filthy porn. Quality.

BigGameHunter
10-08-2004, 18:49:45
What's the format for pics in these articles? I'd like to try my hand at it on Part Deux.

Debaser
10-08-2004, 23:53:33
100 pixel by 100 pixel .jpgs or .gif files.

BigGameHunter

Yes, but the usual bunch of spastics never sent me any comments.
