A message from Sledg / CONTESTS!
By eric
8/13/08 10:05am
So, since Sledg doesn't have access to post updates quite yet, I'm acting as his proxy. Here goes:

Hey MTC-ers,
Here are the narrowed down selections for the mix contest. Please pick the one that interests you and leave comment. If there was another one that was suggested in the forum thread that you prefer over these, feel free to write them in. Please keep selections to the ones that were in the thread however. I left the descriptions in the words of the people who suggested them.

1. From Johnny Luddite
"FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE" A broad one this. Songs about Russia, songs with a Russian theme, Russian songs, songs that sound like they might have come from Russia, interpret it as you will.

2. From Johnny Luddite
"THE YEAR OF BUBBLING UNDER" Select the year of your choice, and fill the mix up with album tracks from that year that never went top 40.

3. From Johnny Luddite
"NOAH'S ARK OF NOISE" A mix featuring animal tracks two by two. e.g. 2 songs about dogs followed by two songs about chickens, etc etc. Maybe we could have a horrible rule for this one that once someone has posted songs with a particular animal, that animal couldn't be used again. One way to get quick spur of the moment entries.

4. From Calaveth
In the vein of Robot vs Monster, "PIRATE vs NINJA". Two teams duke it out, only the most awesome survive.

5. From Calaveth
The music you should have listened to growing up, but didn't.

6. From Cassee
You could steal a theme from the FTOTZ club and do "Sin." There are infinite possibilities for songs about bad behavior, but also sin and redemption.

7. From Bea
"The Alternate Soundtrack"
...specific scenes where music was used would be re-tracked, and in the description field for every song picked would be the name of the scene in the movie and the song originally used in it, and it would be in chronological order. The Alternate Soundtrack, you know. A real challenge could be to do this with musicals (only) and find songs that could replace the original songs exclusively written for the musical.

8. From Rachael
A mix for a celebrity/politician/public figure.

9. From Rachael
A food mix.

10. From Derhay
Forget Henry, Will You Accept My Mix, Lucy Whitmore*
[a mix to woo and seek the affections of a film character] Choose your own film and character. [[*50 First Dates]]

11. From Galaxiepi
Mixes about BALLS.

Im gonna leave the voting open until this Saturday when the winning contest goes up and the winning ideas creator gets a sweet-ass badge to show off.

So please vote and formulate some ideas for next time because these Contest idea contests are gonna become a regular occurrence. Thank you.

King Arthur: Victory is mine!

King Arthur: We thank thee, Lord, that in thy mercy -
[cut off by the Knight kicking him]
Black Knight: Come on, then.
King Arthur: What?
Black Knight: Have at you!
King Arthur: You are indeed brave, Sir Knight, but the fight is mine!
Black Knight: Oh, had enough, eh?
King Arthur: Look, you stupid bastard. You've got no arms left!

Much like the Black Knight, persistence is the key. Keep trying and you wil soon rise to first place on the winning team! Congrats.

Happy Valentine's day from the MTC staff. We really do love you all. So much so, in fact, that you should probably investigate a temporary restraining order -- we're crazy like that.
