Obfuscation's Song Roulette v. You Better Believe It!!!!!!!
« on: September 15, 2011, 03:53:26 PM »
So now it's my turn to start my roulette and these are the awesome people that are going to participate in it.


- dethklok09
- PuffyPat
- YtseBitsySpider
- jingle.boy
- Gorille85
- TheKingInCrimson
- zxlkho
- DTVT

First, let me tell you guys that YtseBitsySpider already sent me a message saying that his modem died on him and won't be able to send me anything for the next 2-3 days. So that means that this round will be a bit longer than usual since I will wait for him.

Anyway, this roulette will only be 5 rounds and the scoring system that I will use is 1-5 points system. That way the scores will be closer throughout the whole roulette and it will be anybody's game to win at anytime.

So for this first round, just send me anything you want.  ;D Make my head explode with awesomeness please.

Ahh I forgot to mention something about that. No I don't have one and prefer to keep it that way so you guys will just send me whatever you want and not something based off what I listen to regularly.

First of all, you have 7 people playing, so as King of the Roulette Players (as the first two time winner and 3 time runner up, I am entitled to this title) I am inserting myself as the 8th player.  Haters go hate.

Second of all, how do you want the songs, PM's of links or actual emails?

Thank's O, and thanks for patience everyone.
I'm at work now, but big fire walls no youtube or emailing out of office, hell DTF barely loads on IE 3 or whatever I'm running here...with no java.

Ok, I found a used router/modem thingy, and I'm picking it up at lunch I'm no techy but I should be able to have my house back and connected by this evening and hopefully a song sent by late saturday ish or Sunday if all goes well.

I can't view lastfm here at work either - blocked-er-oony.
Take care everyone - Bet you all didn't even notice I was gone.

Happy Lives to you all.

I'm going away for the weekend, and not sure if the cottage we're going to has a connection to the internetz. No rush to start round 2.

Happy listening Obs.

I doesn't have last.fm. Also, you could just send him the name of a song and he'll look it up on spotify/grooveshark/youtube.

I'm a TWO time champion.  and Quadrafail's doesn't count since it didn't last long before he committed Arceaus-cide.  It's like baseball, you have to get to the mid-way point.

You did win mine, so that's worth 1.5 wins.

I am having some problem right now so I doubt I will post the results today but I will definitely have them up by tomorrow. But to keep the ball rolling, please send me your round two songs now. This time send me something heavy that would make want to walk up to people and push them to the ground. Also sorry for not putting them up today if I don't.

Im gonna hold my round two song until I see round one results if that's ok. I'd like to gauge your tastes based on round one results.
Take care everyone - Bet you all didn't even notice I was gone.

Damn... that was smart.  Although, I don't think I'll need to change mine.  Frankly, I don't think that I have much that's heavy enough to Obs' tastes.

straight prog

Well now, I guess it's time for the results. You guys did not make this easy on me since all of the songs were good and very hard for me to give them a strong score. The scores for these songs may change later on for me the more I listen to them, but this is how they stand right now.

5
zxlkho - Bug Eyes by dredg
I have to say that you got really lucky with this submission of the song since I recently got this album since someone told me to listen to it but I havn't and you got a 5 with it. I don't why but this song just made me feel happy when I heard throughout all of it. Also what I least expected to think that I would from this song was the bass which I really enjoyed. Not that good of an explanation for a song that got a 5 this round but that's just the way I feel about it.

Gorille85 - Unsolved Ideas of a Distorted Guest by Unexpect
WHAT THE FUCK!!!??????? Yeah so that's what I was basically thinking while listening to this song. It was a what the fuck this is awesome what the fuck. Sometimes I don't enjoy songs that are all over the place but i did enjoy this one. The female volcalist has some kickass clean and harsh vocals and the musicians are really something amazing throughout the whole song. It may be a random song but i think it does it's job in painting whatever pciture they wanted to project in this song.

4
jingle.boy - Human See, Human Do by Star One
Now this song was really interesting to and I thought was going to be different by the way it started. When the song got rolling though, I couldn't help but headbang to it and hear how awesome it was. The only reason I see this song getting a 4 is beacuse at first I didn't like one the vocals that the song had but it has started to grow on me and I am starting to hear how it fits with the song. I will defitnitly check out this band more.

dethklok09 - I'm Down with Brown Town by Dance Gavin Dance
A friend of mine was told me about this band but I never took the time to listen to one of their songs. As of right now I am regretting that I didn't since this song really showed me how awesome this band can be. I also like the singer or singers in this song. Sorry I havn't been able to check if they have more than one singer in the band.

3
The King in Crimson - Farewell Mona Lisa by The Dillinger Escape Plan
Another band I had heard of but never listened to one of their songs. Now I have to say that this songs was really fun to listen to but after a couple of listens I started to get a bit bored of it. I really enjoy bands like this but I usually listen to them only once in a while but I have to say that the intro to the song is awesome. Case closed.

YtseBitsySpider - Impact by Axxess - Maxxess
A am a big fan of instrumentals so I was really excited to hear this song when I found out it was an instrumental. The song is just like you said to me when you sent me the song. It is quiet, calm, and interesting. The thing is for me though that the song is just I don't know, missing a section in it that really makes me go WOW!!!!!!!....very nice indeed. The song is one that I will be listening to more and more and to see if it grows on me more.

2
PuffyPat - Phyrigia by Adam Rogers
I really hate to score this song this low since it is a good jazz song. Don't get me wrong though, I enjoy listening to jazz and this song was one of them. It heard some nice jazz guitar solos and I enjoyed the saxophone solo it has as well. I don't know why though but it just didn't capture my attention that much though. I can't say anything else about this song only that it is a jazz song that I should listen to more.

DTVT - Elegy by Intronaut
This was one of the harder songs for me to give a score to since I thought I was being to harsh on it. I liked the way the song started and how it was going. I also liked the guitars tone on this song. While listening to it though, going toward the end of the song, I started to get a bit bored. It's a cool song in all but it seems to be a song I wouldn't listen to very often. I will go and check out some more songs of the band to though since they sound really interesting.

Standings
5 - zxlkho, Gorille85
4 - jingle.boy, dethklok09
3 - The King in Crimson, YtseBitsySpider
2 - PuffyPat, DTVT
1 -

I have to say that this was an awesome round and can't wait to hear your songs for round two.  :metal
