Web's Rookie Roulette! *FINAL Results!*
« on: April 11, 2014, 06:34:05 PM »
My intention for wanting to do a roulette is almost solely to find new (to me) music. There's lots out there (new and old) that I haven't really taken the time to get more into or just haven't come across yet and this as you all know is a great avenue to take the time and discover new music. So as basic as can be, my judgement will be based on what I think of the musician/band/songs that are sent but I prefer it to be something that I haven't really listened to much, if at all. It can come from just about any generation and genre if you feel confident in it.


There's been so many interesting ways of running these roulette's, determining a way to go about it has been a struggle. I love the themes but I feel like themes sometimes get in the way of choosing a band/song, so it will be quite vague in those terms but you'll be able to send the best of the best throughout.

I know there have been bands I've missed over the years some really far back so for the rounds with theme's I'm breaking it up between two 30 something year periods of modern music. Wanting to find older and some very new bands as well and feel this can help, also some of you tend to know older bands better than new and some know the newer bands a bit better so it somewhat evens the playing field.




Rules and stuff:

Rules are, I make the rules as I go along...lol...

Hoping to have 10 contestants and 10 rounds... I'll move quickly so if you join please be willing to be timely with submissions. Once a musician/band has been used it can't be used again. If a band can't be used or whatever and it's sent I'll notify and allow for a change. Scoring will be 1-10 with .5 increments as well.

I don't really want to eliminate anyone along the way but it helps to keep the competition fierce and with the scoring reseting after elimination rounds the final 6 contestants should all be in the game as we come down to the end!

Submissions can be sent to my email at musicnut77@gmail.com . Youtube would be preferable but if you need to send in other ways just let me know, sure it will be fine.



Round 1: Free Round

Round 2: 60's-80's

Round 3: 90's-10's


Eliminate Bottom 2 contestants (SCORING RESETS)



Round 4: 60's-80's

Round 5: 90's-10's

Round 6: Free Round


Eliminate Bottom 2 contestants (SCORING RESETS)




Final 6 contestants will compete in 4 final rounds but I won't reveal the final themes till we get to that point.


Round 7: 60's-80's

Round 8: 90's-10's

Round 9 and 10 ??? Mystery Rounds ???




Contestants:

1.Ultimetalhead
2.senecadawg2
3.jingle.boy
4.Nekov
5.Lucien
6.Dr. DTVT
7.lonestar
8.Evermind
9.orcus116
10.Big Hath

hhhhmmmm... Upon review of your last.fm, seems as though your musical tastes are a few degrees sideways from mine.  This shall be fun and interesting.

I like the decade segmentation for the rounds.  Will be reviewing my options over the weekend.  Don't think I'll have any problem in finding bands you don't know whatsoever.

You can go ahead and kick my butt, but ....



Say, Raider... are you wanting tunes that will lead you to explore the band, or just wanting excellent new music - meaning, one-hit wonders would still appeal to you?

one more question - what is the cutoff for how many plays a band has in your last FM that can be sent?  Over half of the artists have less 4 or less plays, and another 15% are at less than 10 plays.

I'll probably end up eliminated after the first thing with my tastes, but that doesn't matter, right? I'm in.

oh ffs.  Can I ever get in a Roulette without you so I can use the material you've introduced me to?   :rollin

Every now and then I might not play so ethically.   :P

I give you free reign to use what you wish. Based on his last.fm taste, most of what I'll be sending here isn't from the stuff we mutually dig anyways.

If I'm being honest, songs from bands that I will really get into is what I'm looking for. I want the roulette to lead me into new bands, musicians that maybe I haven't had time to listen to or really considered in the past. I figure this will force me to really take the time to evaluate some bands I haven't given a chance or that I don't even know.




one more question - what is the cutoff for how many plays a band has in your last FM that can be sent?  Over half of the artists have less 4 or less plays, and another 15% are at less than 10 plays.



There's a lot I listen to that might not have made it on my Last.fm or is on there very little. If it looks like I haven't listened to the band very much and you think I'd dig it then feel free to send something. As I noted above I'm willing to allow for another submission if I can't really accept the first one sent.




I think we have all but one slot filled for this roulette! :tup
