I am against the idea of posting the round themes before we do the rounds because that would make it more like Alex's roulette and I hate that one.

I really don't care that much; it was just a small suggestion.  It's not like I'm trying to take things over.


However, if Quad is abducted by aliens on his trip and brain-raped, never to this mortal coil to return, everybody else cool with me finishing it?

round 1 results

theme - a song that makes you want to kill yourself

1. Seth - Elliot Smith  - Waltz #1

 :hefdaddy :hefdaddy :hefdaddy Listening to this song made me want to stab myself in the chest twice. Your description of him in a PM was totally accurate and I knew I'd like it just from that description. He's most certainly on my list of MUST check out music now. I loved how layered and eerie and just overall depressing and saddening this was. 10 points.

2. Rich - Billie Holiday - Gloomy Sunday

Songs like this are the reason why I specifically invited you into my roulette. I have a BIG soft spot for 50s music and although I already knew of her (from Fallout 3 :lol) I let this slide because I only knew one song of hers. I definitely have to check out more of her stuff. Dat voice. dat fucking voice. 9 points

3. Marc - Music for Money - La Marche

omg this was so good. Even though it came in third, I really really liked this piece. The instrumentation was fucking brilliant and the production was absolutely wonderful. Everything about this song made me want to stuff a glock in my mouth. Just what I was looking for. 8 points

4. Iarwain - Whitehouse - The Avalanche

This was actually pretty cool. I've never heard anything about this band or this genre before, but it was actually pretty disorienting to listen to, and I was pretty suicidal after hearing it. I give you huge props for taking a risk on a song like this, and it definitely paid off because I really enjoyed it. I really really liked how it built up and morphed over the course of the 4 minutes, and the higher register noises really made me pretty creeped out. 6 points

5. Matt - Dethklok - Go Into the Water

:lol 4 points

6. contest_sanity - Soundgarden - 4th of July

It was an OK song, and it was at least sad, unlike the song that got last place. Overall, I'm not too crazy about grunge, but this song definitely had some good moments. Not really a big fan of Chris Cornell (know him from Audioslave) either, but it was definitely a nice song, and I wasn't bored or anything by it. 3 points

7. cup - Chick Corea/Return to Forever - Return to Forever

I already know RTF, but I don't really listen to them THAT much, and I never knew this song, so its OK this time. Anyway, the song didn't make me want to kill myself at all, and I don't really understand why it had to be 12 minutes long. Other than that, parts of it were cool, but most of it was just kind of there. 1 point


Roulette Rankings

1. Seth - 10 pts
2. Rich - 9 pts
3. Marc - 8 pts
4. Iarwain - 6 pts
5. Matt - 4 pts
6. sanity - 3 pts
7. cup of noodles - 1 pts


Next round: Songs that are good when you are stoned. Yes I will be stoned when I hear them

Oh, on a much more important matter, just noticed:

so we'll be on hiatus for a week.
Now you listen here, man.  I know you may have lots of other musical endeavors to keep your ears warm these next 7 days.  We don't.  All we have is this roulette!  I don't care if it's under your account that you've pored you blood, sweat, and tears into over the last 25 months.  There 7 other people in this thing, and you've got to respect that.  Do what you feel like you have to do, but just know, come the 14th, we'll be continuing Quad's roulette: WITH OR WITHOUT YOU.  I'm sure there are lots of other posters with respected tastes just dying to get into a month-long commitment with the 7 of us.  Think seriously about this; we're not joking!

I'm so with ye, contest!  The last thing we need is a repeat of the ZBomber fiaco.   :lol

Hey! I posted the results within 5 days of getting all of the submisisons, it's not my fault everyone took so long to get their shit in.  :lol

It was totally rad. Totally taken off guard by it, which is a good thing. It was also an interesting way to interpret the theme which won bonus points

EDIT: remember guys, you have over a week for this one. Make it good.

HELL YEAH! Glad you liked it, thought you would. And yeah, I saw that you had 1 listen of Billie Holliday in your last.fm, but figured one single listen would probably be a different song and that you weren't particularly familiar with her. :D

Now to get thinking for round 2.

How is it that no one sent Rebecca Black - Friday?

If cup continues to suck, I'm mocking you relentlessly for taking him Quad.  Then I'll mock cup for sucking.  Then mock you some more probably.

Here are the results for the "Songs to Listen to While High" round.

They are posted in the order I listened to them (completely at random)





1. contest_sanity: Tourniquet -"The Skeezix Dilemma" 10 points

Holy shit this was such an adventurous sounding song. i didn't even realize how long it was until the more drastically changing parts at the end of it. Overall I thought it was epically hilarious, and that it what I liked most about it.

1. Seth: Kevin Gilbert - "Suit Fugue (Dance of the A&R Men)" - 10 points

OH MY GOD those vocals were so ridiculously good. It was like Weird Al Meets Gentle Giant and Frank Zappa all in one. Totally awesome!

1. Matt: Abstract In The Sky - "Terminal 210" - 10 points

I was meaning to check out Volk's stuff, and I was glad you gave me a chance to do that now. Totally just vibed out on the song the entire time. Such wonderful and ethereal stuff.

1. Rich: Gotye - "Hearts A Mess" - 10 points

dude those lead vocals were some of the most insane things I've ever heard. The accompanying video was also incredible. so glad you sent me that, I fucking love it. damn

1. Iarwain: Fela Kuti & The Africa '70 - "Lady" - 10 points

This is the most tasteful song I've ever heard. It's so fucking groovy. How on earth do you know about this? it sounds really old but it's just so great sounding.

1. Marc: Sleepytime Gorilla Museum - "A Hymn to the Morning Star" - 10 points

HOLY FUCKING SHIT

7. Cup: Hawkwind - "Space Is Deep" - 1 point

Why the fuck did I watch all of that?



Roulette Rankings

1. Seth - 20 pts
2. Rich - 19 pts
3. Marc - 18 pts
4. Iarwain - 16 pts
5. Matt - 14 pts
6. sanity - 13 pts
7. cup of noodles - 2 pts


Next Round: A song that will bring a tear to my eye and a boner in my pants
