you know what i'm finding?.... my mood keeps changing... in one sitting i'm looking up one type of thing, in another i'm doing the complete opposite... at one point i started seeing a theme in the selections i was making and i considered going with that, but then i found it too limiting; the choices for whichever artist i was focussing on were more or less subpar musically, and then i'd remember this is a competition!
.....so that idea went out the window, although a couple remain that have a certain link... one minute i'm thinking of organization, another i'm thinking of creating an eclectic mix to mirror my range of tastes... then i'm wondering if i should put my strong selections first or last, or to stagger them, maybe dovetail them.... i'm all over the place here
but i am enjoying the process, definitely... thanks!
i think the weirdest thing about this, the hardest to unthink for me personally, is *not* forming everything in terms of list over all
. ya know? i mean, sure, everyone's gonna see the list at the end of it all, but they won't during the competition. it's all about one lil isolated song of yers, and whatever lil isolated song it happens to get paired against. (okay, this is proggy, so drop the lil a lil.)
and the folk yer competing against, they're all in the same boat, too. everybody has different priorities on all of it, everybody has their own sense of variety... but in the end, i think what matters most is this: *you* just happen to think it's a kickass track. mwhaha. whatever it is. well, unless it's fucquin achilles last stand, of course.
this is why i luvvv this particular competition. ya.
