The main thing you need to do in a roulette is rip on Tim.

That's definitely NOT dead on!

This looks like something I would love to do but I literally feel like my brain broke reading the the way it works. I don't have Spotify but I'm sure I can work around that. I may need to have someone literally call me to explain it better.  :blush
Don't worry about the format if you're not familiar with Spotify, you can just tell me the artist and song(s) and I can find them on Spotify myself.

Short version of what you need to know to get started:
 - each submission should be as many songs as you like from a single band/artist, up to a total of under 20 minutes.
 - anything from an album I've rated on RYM (link in OP) is banned, anything else is not banned. For example if I've rated some albums by a particular band but not others, the albums I've not rated are available to send.
 - first round should be something on the heavier side of your musical interests, round 2 should be from the lighter side, then round 3 is completely open. That then repeats for rounds 4-6. Final round will be an EP round involving multiple artists, rules in the OP

So, you in?

Thanks Rich! I'm in if you'll have me and have patience to break my roulette cherry?

No problem at all Chad, I'll leave sign ups open until the weekend anyway, and I also know the first round especially can take a bit of time and thought.

Well, his in older ones seem more the size of yours, Tomi's, and Luke's, but if they were the size of my earlier ones or Crow's in older roulettes...

The problem for me is that if you have that much music to get through and are trying to do a quick turnaround, you can't give each entry that much listening time.  It takes me at least half a dozen listens to begin sorting things out, usually much more than that, and that's with giving some the same score - I couldn't imagine a pure stacked ranking.  I don't know how some of you do it.

Yeah, there are usually several different phases to each round.  Every roulette is a little different, but usually after all the songs are in we'll slowly guess the artists/songs picked via a game of hangman.  Then there might be impressions or comparisons posted, and eventually results will be up.  Once you submit you can kind of sit back and enjoy the show for the next week or two, and you'll start getting the hang of the flow of things.  If you want a sneak peak of what's up ahead you could skim the first few pages of the other ongoing roulettes (Crow's, Tomislav95's, and mine).

Or you can do like Crow and I do and submit all rounds at once....usually.

I thought about this exact point after my post but it's Rich's roulette.  He would know what he's capable of.  It's just a bit of fun and means I'll not spend too much time on an entry.  Send something cool and hope it sticks!

or Crow's in older roulettes...
the funny thing is in retrospect those writeups were way too long. ain't nobody gonna read all that and they're very disorganized and unfocused  :lol
nowadays i'm bullet-pointing as i go and throwing together tight, concise, to-the-point writeups out of the notes, which is much less work for much better results  :hat
writing for youtube for four years'll do that to ya

Nah I've never written that much, that's just not how my brain works. I've always been more - but by no means entirely - on the "big picture" side of things (intuition, or "N", in Myers Briggs terms) than the detail side. I get the impression you lean somewhat the other way. For single-artist submissions, my write-ups are a paragraph, which may be long or short depending on how much I have to say. EPs and suchlike I'll always write a bit more.


Ariich is a freak, or somehow has more hours in the day than everyone else.
:lol Sig'd.

But seriously, I just get a lot of time to listen to music during the week and in the evenings, almost all of which is while doing other things. Unless I'm in a meeting then I can almost always listen to music when working, when clearing/washing up in the evening, while commuting on those occasions I work in the office, etc. Getting 6-8 hours music in a round is no problem - on a quiet day I can listen through all of it in the one day. And for a lot of music I listen to, I have a good sense of my opinion of it after 2-3 listens (although I find it harder with single songs, which is exactly why I favour these up-to-20-minute roulettes), which is why my minimum commitment is 3 listens but for some of them will listen 4 or 5 times (or even more on occasion) if I'm unsure.

In terms of decent write-ups, yeah like I said I don't like to write loads of detail on lots of specifics, that's not really how I approach music anyway. I try my best to ensure I know what I feel about something, and then articulate that in a paragraph. It helps that writing concise assessments of things is literally a major part of my job. :lol

I mean, you'd have to work pretty hard to send me something I hate. The lowest scores I've ever given have been 6.0/10, which just about scrapes through as "decent", and that was in my album roulettes where scores were on average slightly lower because people weren't picking out the best songs. One of those I probably could have gone slightly lower, but I was rounding to the nearest half back then, and it was a post-roulette submission anyway.

This is literally me. On paper I should be able to run a tight roulette, to a good time frame. However, I suck at write ups!
