View Full Version : LWP3 Participant Roll Call


Snapcase

With LWP2 being just about finalised, it has been suggested preparations for the third installment should get underway. This will be handled slightly differently: we want as many participants as humanly possible (well, okay, no more than 14 really) to send in material for a compilation that all participants will have a chance to assess, not only ignorant of who the song is by but also who sent it in...

Unless we get, like, five or six participants at the very least, this will be quite boring. So sign up now for a bit of group-insulting fun come October.

Yes.
Does it have to be obscure pretentious shit, or can it just be anything :)

Scabrous Birdseed
25-08-2002, 13:03:56
Nah, it can be anything. I'd expect you to want it to be something most people wouldn't recognise, though, 'cause otherwise it kinda defeats the point.

Sean
25-08-2002, 13:14:23
Yes. And I have just the tracks for it.

Scabrous Birdseed
25-08-2002, 13:21:47
Me to! Since I have to ignore my usual treasure-trove of American music, I'm having to look elsewhere... I have a ten-minute section planned out already, but I'd expect it to be longer than that.

PosterBoy
25-08-2002, 15:01:56
how many tracks per person?

Scabrous Birdseed
25-08-2002, 15:18:04
We're doing it by minutes, not number of tracks, to prevent Sean from putting in 60 minutes of music. :)

The number of minutes depends on how many participants we get, but it'll be ten and a half at the very least (if we get seven or fourteen participants... and it'll be negotiable between participants). If we get more than seven participants we'll go double-CD.

PosterBoy
25-08-2002, 15:22:14
Cool

I knew there was a purpose in liking music only I have ever heard of.

Scabrous Birdseed
25-08-2002, 15:41:06
Put some country on there to annoy Funko.

The Shaker
25-08-2002, 15:47:13
you evil git :)

Is LWP1 available somewhere? Perferably with a list of which participants submitted what?

Aye. I'm in. Start praying.

Lazarus and the Gimp
25-08-2002, 20:02:40
My one regret is that I've already exposed too many to "Hamburger lady".

Scabrous Birdseed
25-08-2002, 20:49:18
It's a shit song anyway.

Guest
25-08-2002, 22:27:51
i agree

*End Is Forever*
26-08-2002, 01:07:33
Count me in. :)

Scabrous Birdseed
26-08-2002, 10:07:24
Yay!

So that's

Me
Funko (I assume?)
Sean
Laz
*End*
and The Shaker so far,

with Posterboy a strong possibility. ;)

As it stands right now you all get ten and a half minutes each. If one more person signs up (assuming Funko and Posterboy are in), you get no less than eighteen and a half minutes each, so get recruitin'!

The Shaker
26-08-2002, 16:46:04
Oi Scabby, when were you wanting them by?

Scabrous Birdseed
26-08-2002, 17:52:48
Since we haven't decided how many minutes you get yet...

Mid-October would be the deadline we're shooting for.

The Shaker
26-08-2002, 17:57:31
what about protein, debaser, higgsy?

Lazarus and the Gimp
26-08-2002, 18:00:10
Fuck 'em.

Scabrous Birdseed
26-08-2002, 18:03:27
...FunkyFingers, Nav, Noisy?

Lazarus and the Gimp
26-08-2002, 18:08:23
And them.

PosterBoy
26-08-2002, 19:54:49
I'm definately in

Scabrous Birdseed
26-08-2002, 20:45:45
Good.

Guy
27-08-2002, 13:30:02
I would like to participate in this, if you'll have me, but I'm not sure how to get music to you. No CD burner and MP3s are generally too big to e-mail.

If anyone has a solution, you can count me in.

Sean
27-08-2002, 14:44:05
Tape?

Fagbed!

Do you have broadband? We could do it by ICQ or AIM direct connect. Or just find a friend with a CD Burner, I mean, you have two months. :)

Fagbed!
27-08-2002, 15:15:27
Yes, that's me. I forgot to log out the AE, I'll use it for a while 'cause I like the avatar. :D

Guy
27-08-2002, 15:31:28
No broadband, ICQ, or AIM. Making friends sounds difficult, but then it's something I've always wanted to try. Count me in. :)

Lazarus and the Gimp
27-08-2002, 16:38:23
Tell us which tracks and some kind soul with a colossal record collection might be able to help.

Fagbed!
27-08-2002, 16:59:55
Wouldn't that defeat the aim of people not knowing what the tracks are?

Lazarus and the Gimp
27-08-2002, 20:33:54
Well think really hard and we'll read the melody off your mind and fucking hum it then.

Scabrous Birdseed
27-08-2002, 20:39:23
Hmm Hmm Hm-Hm-Hm Hmm Hmm Hmm, Hmm Hmm Hm-Hm Hmm Hmm Hmm, Hmm Hmm Hm-Hm Hm Hm Hm HM Hm-HM Hm-HM Hm-HM!

Guy
27-08-2002, 20:57:15
It's okay, I've found a "friend". I'm pretty sure I can even raise the bribe money.

LWP is a go!

Scabrous Birdseed
27-08-2002, 21:12:46
Cool. Once everyone's had the chance to sign up, we'll proceed with distribution details and such.

*End Is Forever*
27-08-2002, 21:13:59
So I'll hand over the CD in Derwent bar or something?

Scabrous Birdseed
27-08-2002, 21:16:49
Possibly. Not Vanbrugh Bar then?

*End Is Forever*
27-08-2002, 21:19:17
Could really go out on a limb and go to Wentworth...

*End Is Forever*
27-08-2002, 21:19:44
Or even Halifax! :eek:

Scabrous Birdseed
27-08-2002, 21:31:59
Nah that's just silly. It's the on-campus movement equivalent of sending stuff by courier.

*End Is Forever*
27-08-2002, 21:34:42
How about Skeldergate Pizza? That's quite convenient for me, and 2.50 for a 9" Special is hardly bad value... :)

*End Is Forever*
27-08-2002, 21:51:38
That sounded really dodgy...

Scabrous Birdseed
27-08-2002, 21:56:28
So you ended up in town? Cool.

Funkodrom
29-08-2002, 11:58:47
OK I'll do it.

Scabrous Birdseed
29-08-2002, 12:05:58
Cool. To give the other Newzies a chance to sign up should they want to, I'll close this on monday and post the details of what you need to do. Expect to have to pay for a stamped, self-addressed envelope, or something.

*End Is Forever*
29-08-2002, 17:50:56
I won't, though. :)

Scabrous Birdseed
29-08-2002, 19:18:00
Okay, anyone willing to meet me in York in mid-october is excepted. :D

Tizzy
29-08-2002, 20:03:35
Ok, I'll give it a shot

Guy
29-08-2002, 20:40:49
What, meeting Birdseed in York? You're braver than I thought.

Scabrous Birdseed
29-08-2002, 20:54:46
Oooh, nine participants. I've got no idea how we're going to break up this article into acceptable pieces... Possibly quite simply CD1/CD2, but that would mean I'd have to balance the order the songs were in... :clueless:

Lazarus and the Gimp
29-08-2002, 21:38:42
That should give us about 15 minutes each. Not bad.

Scabrous Birdseed
29-08-2002, 21:55:50
If we were ten it'd be 15 minutes each exactly. :)

Lazarus and the Gimp
29-08-2002, 21:57:44
Give me a double slot and your wish will come true.

Scabrous Birdseed
29-08-2002, 22:03:29
Only if you register a silly AE and pretend to be two people for the duration.

*End Is Forever*
30-08-2002, 00:17:12
What, meeting Birdseed in York? You're braver than I thought.

I live in York, silly.

Debaser
30-08-2002, 10:38:05
I'll be the 10th person.

Scabrous Birdseed
30-08-2002, 10:47:52
Cool.

*End Is Forever*
31-08-2002, 00:15:35
What are the odds of Sean wasting his entire allocation on one song?

Funkodrom
31-08-2002, 01:20:59
1- 3

Scabrous Birdseed
31-08-2002, 09:14:10
Final query: Should we be really awkward and inconvenient and send anonymous CDs, or is it okay for one person (me) to know who sent what? I mean, the first approach could spell disaster if one gets lost in the mail or something.

*End Is Forever*
31-08-2002, 14:28:32
...and you'll know what's on mine anyway because I'm handing it to you in person. That's assuming you wouldn't be able to figure it out anyway. :lol:

Scabrous Birdseed
02-09-2002, 11:30:35
Absolutely last chance to join now. Tonight I'm closing it to allow people time to prepare.

Lazarus and the Gimp
02-09-2002, 18:32:16
What? Put some thought into it? Are you mad?

Funkodrom
02-09-2002, 19:08:48
I'll struggle to find anything that no-one's heard before with the diversity of music listeners we're getting.

The Shaker
02-09-2002, 19:44:11
Don't forget to add 'good' to the choosing criteria :)

Funkodrom
02-09-2002, 19:52:10
Er... what? It has to be good?

The Shaker
02-09-2002, 19:55:44
na, only kidding.

Funkodrom
02-09-2002, 19:58:01
*phew*

The Shaker
02-09-2002, 20:04:09
otherwise what the hell would EIF be doing submitting stuff.

Funkodrom
02-09-2002, 20:07:04
Or Snapcase!

The Shaker
02-09-2002, 20:19:38
WHAT!!!!!!!
I must have missed that.

Funkodrom
02-09-2002, 20:22:44
It's OK you'll be able to recognise his stuff pretty easily.

Scabrous Birdseed
02-09-2002, 20:47:01
That's what you think. Oh, well, okay, you will.

The Shaker
02-09-2002, 20:48:30
Done mine anyway.
I recognise most of them.

Scabrous Birdseed
02-09-2002, 21:52:50
I think I might put like one song on there people will know, and then confuse them for the rest of it.

*End Is Forever*
02-09-2002, 22:05:38
I've got a couple of songs that aren't completely obvious... I think.

Zoooooommm... I'm in. With 28 minutes to spare :smoke: If I can find some obscure enough songs :D

The Bursar
02-09-2002, 22:42:26
unless that other thread means I'm too late, in which case I'll just shuffle off meekly and pretend I'm someone else

Sean
02-09-2002, 23:23:03
Hmm. I am really tempted to do something that none of you would get given a million years. Should I?

Scabrous Birdseed
03-09-2002, 09:29:12
Yeah, you can be in, given that I failed to give a time. Er, You've all got 13 mins 40 seconds now, I'm awfully sorry.

Scabrous Birdseed
03-09-2002, 09:30:47
Sean: Will we know it was you who sent it? :D

*End Is Forever*
03-09-2002, 12:20:10
Probably. His will be the crappy self-indulgent electronica.

Scabrous Birdseed
03-09-2002, 12:37:58
Oi, don't reveal the contents of LWP2 yet!!!

03-09-2002, 14:28:46
Reminds me, I've not sent him my CD yet... :o

Funkodrom
03-09-2002, 14:31:28
You sending me one too?

*End Is Forever*
03-09-2002, 14:56:48
Guess so... you'll have to do without the CD label though. :)

Funkodrom
03-09-2002, 15:27:04
That's fine.

*End Is Forever*
03-09-2002, 20:03:36
It's a rather fetching blue and yellow. Sean should write about it. :)

Sean
04-09-2002, 17:49:59
Most interesting part, I’ll bet.
