Okay guys, so its the most popular user on DTF.org's :\ turn to do his second roulette. Will it be a success or a disaster? Will be worth our time or waste of our time? Who gives a shit and lets just get this started already.

So whoever ends up participating probably won't know me too well since I disappear for some time form here cause of other time consuming things and then just reappear and drop in uninvited to do things like this. With that point, I hope people will still want to play in this and help me discover music. To help you with your choices, I will be posting a banned band's list of course and the link to my first roulette so you can skim through and get an idea of what I like or how it went last time. I'm too proud of how I ran it last time so hope to host this one better.

Song Roulette v1: http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=27848.0

Differences between this roulette and my last one is that I will use a rating score of 1-10 instead(and tally up the points more carefully as well  ;D).

How many people I would like to participate?  I'm not sure yet(if anybody even wants to be in this one) but anything from 1-10 is good for me and for the sake of this thing moving at a good pace.
How many rounds will this be? No exact number yet but probably between 5 or 7. All I know so far is that the first and last round will be open so that way we can see how you change in how you choose what to send during the time of this roulette. Unless any of you have a better idea for a last round, I'm all ears.
Send your choices through either PM's or email, whichever is easier for you, and send me links of either youtube(so I can know what song it is in case I get it someway else)or spotify.
Yeah so I wrote way more than I should or thought I would but lets get started and see who wants in on this.  :metal :metal :metal :metal :metal :metal :metal

Awww yeah. Here come the cool people. If there's anybody else wanting to join, you still can. I think I will put the cutoff at 8 people but can still do 10 if there's enough people. If not, 6 is fine.

Maybe there is and maybe there isn't but just wait until you're done with my roulette to join a program.

Got it.

Sure. Why would I say no? Maybe this time you'll beat everybody by like 191757197 points y'know.

Yeah go ahead and send it if you can already.

Yo so I think I will just keep the number of participants at 8. I believe that's a good number of participants and should allow me to give a good amount of time to each song I get from each person. So far I get 6 people to sent me theirs already. Only Lucien and adace left. Meanwhile I've been already jamming out to some of the songs sent.   :metal

Okay. I got everybody's submission and should have results up on Saturday. Maybe even Friday if I feel like I've listened to all the songs enough.

Quick question for feedback or suggestions. What do you guys think of a round where it would be like a group round I guess you can call it where we split some of you guys into groups and between you guys, you choose what to send me for that round. It would be more than 1 song per group of course and the rest of the details can be worked. Just let me know what you think. Whether you like it or hate it or think its stupid, just tell me. Trying to come up with an interesting round idea is all.

It would work if the pairs know each other well and have similar tastes in music so they could quickly come to a consensus.  But it would essentially be one person picking a song and the other person going along with it, even if the second person really likes the song because while it is possible, two people picking the same song on the first try would be rare.

I personally don't like the idea of pairs/teams. But it's your roulette, and I'd be happy to go along with it.

The more basic something is, the more I'll probably like it. I generally prefer just sending a song, getting a score, rinse and repeat.

Like the others said, though, it's your roulette. You can do what you want, and I can roll with it.

Eh,  doesn't matter much to me. Seems a lot of messaging back and forth though.

After further review, the call on the field is I won't do it. I was just wasting time trying to come up with a fun round idea and to make this more competitive for no reason but didn't think it thoroughly enough and that's why I asked for your opinion.

  • The changing of the worrd is inevitabre!!!
A good pairs idea is that (as Doc mentioned), for people with relatively similar tastes, one person picks the band, the other person picks the song.
Can you imagine some alien race comes to a large nebula they've never seen before, and it just turns out it's the Federation's dumping ground for space-smile?
And TAC can suck it  :biggrin:, this is heavy in all the right places.  :tup

That is a good idea but not sure how the rest of the participants feel about it.

Also the results should be up later today. Just need to give a couple of songs more listens. To keep this rolling though, you can send me your round 2 songs. For round 2, I want to learn more about you guys so send me your favorite song. It can be of either all time or the one you've been enjoying the most lately.
