OK, sign me up. I'm already in on Train of Naught's roulette. So I may as well jump in with both feet. Although, your "not in to" list makes me want to cry a little inside.... ;)

Literally  :lol That's how journalists called their music, mocking them because they would spend more time looking at the pedals than interacting with the audience.

So, music dorks with little talent or charisma, trying to distract the listener with their pedal wankery.

Got it.

Submissions aren't open yet :P. But seeing there are more than 10 participants (and there's still room for more!), I'll post the rules for the elimination round:
  • Will consist of two quick rounds, in the first one your score won't add up to your total (it will be just for reference), and will be for you folks to try all the risky music you want and it will have no effect at all on your score. Think of it as a free round with no consequences, to test my tastes and such. If you've got something very risky in mind, this is the perfect moment to send it. Beware that submissions on this round will still be banned like in a normal round.
  • Second round, once you've got a grasp of what I like and don't, it's the actual elimination round. I'll take the top 10 songs and let the participants who sent those to stay. If you are in, the score you receive will add up to your total.
I chose this approach because I hate elimination rounds and always wanted a quick way to assess the host's tastes in some stuff I wasn't sure about. Also my tastes can be a bit of a mess so hope this helps  :lol.

Submissions for the free round start on Friday 8th at 00:00 GMT -3, and that will be the last day to sign up for this. I'll spend the rest of the day updating the third post with some more genres to help you.

Bolsters, if you want to resubmit, you can do so once submissions are open.

Thanks for the invite Sacul - seeing as you're doing an elimination round to kick off, I can't see any reason not to participate for as long as I last!

Sorry, when you said you said you'd only ask us to submit on Friday I didn't realise you did not actually want people to start submitting until then. :lol

Since the first of these two rounds has no bearing on score or eliminations at all, I will definitely change my submission....on Friday.

Alright alright, screw it, I'm in too. Can't hurt to be eliminated in two roulettes at once.

What's the length limit for the first round btw?

I thought I had included you already  :lol . Added.

Hell yeah  :metal

10 minutes. However, you can send only one song up to 18 mins. Applies to all rounds. Added to the OP.

EDIT: Finished updating the third post, and I think I'll leave it like that, am on the character limit  :lol

Thanks for the invite via PM, but I really don't have time for this (or much else that isn't uni work) right now.

Maybe next time :)-.

also

ALSO

In terms of submissions, do you have Spotify premium and therefore get high-quality streaming? If so, that's probably better for me to send rather than mp3s I have, as I keep pretty much all my mp3s at 192kbps for space.

Thanks, just wanted to be thorough and let you guys know well what I like, previous roulettes have taught me my tastes are a bit of a mess so it's the least I could do  :lol

I've got Premium so yeah, would probably be better sending stuff on Spotify. But if your submission is not there, 192 kbps mp3s will be fine for roulette purposes.

I love some good soundtracks, but they're sadly banned for this roulette just in case :P

Just upload it to mega.nz and send me the link.

Just make sure it's of the "super lo-fi, recorded in a bathroom" variety.

I'm tempted to send something by Nǽnřĉ˙bbŚrğ VbëřřĦōlökäävsŦ for the practice round just for shiggles.

Only send it if it was recorded with a potato.

I assume you could try uploading somewhere like Sendspace (don't really keep up with file uploading places but I'm sure there are tons others) and sending the URL via PM. Unless there's an upload feature here

I went with good old fashioned youtube.  Maybe if I make it past the elimination I'll sign up for something else (or maybe not...) :)
