So when does this start now?

I wanted to give more time for people to join, because people joined two and three days late last time. And then I had to mix people up, because some people dropped out or didn’t/couldn’t participate during all of the days.

I was also waiting for some other suggestions, but since I haven’t heard any yet, then I’d just say to not use songs or artists you used last time (if you participated last time.)


I’d say 24 hours. Then I’ll put your names into a pot and mix us up again.

I’m in for another round. The previous round is pretty good. So I’m hoping for the same in the next round.

Is it can be music buddy tiem naow?

Yeah. I’m going to edit in the new pairs.

“Rules” are as such:

  • Don’t use the same songs as you did before in the last round.
  • Don’t use any of the artists’ that you used in the last round.

Incoming pairs…

  • Twilitlord
  • DarkErmac
  • Zarathh
  • TehRussBus
  • Zacharias
  • Fridge Logic
  • StarGazer
  • Pyro
  • Penz0id
  • Wsxdas
  • Alejandro
  • Luis
  • Patrick
  • Bruelock

Paired as:

  • Fridge Logic and Pyro
  • Zacharias and Twilitlord
  • Patrick and Alejandro
  • Penz0id and StarGazer
  • TehRussBus and Wsxdas
  • Bruelock and Zarathh
  • Luis and DarkErmac

Make sure that if you have changed your name and your avatar, then tell your partner. They might not know who you are unless you’re already somewhat close. Also, I think this randomization will prevent people from having the same buddy, so all should be good to go.

So I’d say that we start in…30 hours? That way, I’ll be back from work before we start in case I need to manually put together more pairs. If you two are ready to go though and have no issues, then have at it.

  • One week
  • One song per day
  • Make sure they can get to the song fairly easily (e.g. SoundCloud, YouTube, etc.)
  • Try to keep the song under 7 minutes
  • You can dislike the song and say you dislike the song, but don’t insult your buddy’s taste in music or your buddy.

That’s what the 30 hours is for.

You certainly said you wanted to participate, but I forgot to add your name to the list. Forgive me, I’ve got some other things on my mind.

However, I leave myself out just in case someone is the odd many out (i.e. there are 15 people interested, and there can’t be 7.5 pairs, so I make up the 8th pair with the 15th person.)

Simply, I’m your partner now.

So since this thing starts at around 7pm my time, does that mean I have to get my first song out within the last five hours of my day? Or does each “day” just count as the 24 hours spanning from 7pm one day to 7pm the next (as my case would be)?

This week is gonna be great, Verbose!
StarGazer and I are buddies, and we both acquired the albums the other suggested, because we liked it so much!

It’s not that precise. I just give hard times so people have a starting point. The main thing is that you don’t leave your buddy hanging (like I did.) If you miss a day, then hit them up with two songs. If you have to go 8 days instead because you missed a day, then go ahead. Just communicate with your partner.

Ok, so I’m absolutely positive that the time I wait for people to jump in before starting won’t matter.

But like I’ve said, I have a plan for that. Megalolzors is your partner, Pseudo.

Just let me know if you’re going to partner with him. When/if you do, then I’ll stop sending him music, and then you will in my stead.

Alrighty then, I’ll send today’s tune. Hopefully he gets it in time to respond.

Hey Verbose, we’ve all been done for several days now! Should we start organizing a third week with new partners?

Oct 14, 2012 at 02:39PM EDT

yeah.

It’s unfortunate my partner never got back to me. I’ll probably use the same songs with the next partner.

Hopefully fridge will get a better partner than me this time

I’ve lost count of the days since I didn’t have a partner this time around.

It seems like there is still some interest, so I can mix you guys up again. I’ll start a “countdown” once we have 6-8 people who are interested. Right now, we have three four (math is hard…)

@Twilitlord

That was my hesitation in beginning another round. I wasn’t sure how active people were being, and it would be awkward to tell your partner to participate. If that happens, then you can just contact me, and I can act as a go-in-between for you.

YEAH OLD BUDDAY!
I really liked our songs last week, StarGazer, but I want to hear from someone with a totally different spectrum of music this week! :D

@Verbose: Let’s wipe the rules of not posting bands we posted before, because I’m running out of favourites/bands that I’m not embarrassed to share.

What kind of spectrum, Pen?

I have a wide range of spectrum right here.

I listen to everything except rap and pop, but I’d love to hear artists within my (“basket of oranges” -Wsxdas) that I haven’t heard of before.
Ex: I like electronic music, StarGazer introduced me to The Luna Sequence, which I hadn’t heard of before.

Speak now, or forever hold you peace (until we begin in 24 hours. But if you don’t have any problems, then you can just go ahead and get started.)

Yay, music buddy time! Zar and I will have some fun.

I’m gonna go ahead and predict a half dozen people coming in the thread as soon as we start: “Eh, I didn’t know this was happening, can I join?”

“Yes.”

Alright, I got Pseudo
He said he doesn’t like rough stuff, so I’ll cut back on that.
Netsky, Kenny G, and Klute it is

Well, it’s been just over a week. Let’s share our thoughts on the week and organize the next one.

I was partnered with Zarrath, and I liked most of what he shared with me, most notably Iced Earth – Coming Curse. Zar was really busy, so we stopped midway through the week.

I look forward to seeing who I’m with this coming week.

I really do love this thread.
Music is my life, I live in a family of seven, three of which are professional (ish) singer/songwriters and I pretty much grew up on the stuff.
I’m involved in the music program at my school and actually wrote an expository speech about the evolution of music theory and instruments.
In my spare time I play the mandolin, piano, guitar, drums, and trombone. Listening to music has pretty much gotten me through life so far. I actually listen primarily to Pandora Internet Radio because I like so many different kinds of music. Indie, Bluegrass, hard rock, dubstep, drum and bass, techno, Chill/Downtempo, and oriental chill are probably my favorites. If you want to see my speech, I would be willing to link it to you guys.
Oh, and by the way i’m in if that’s cool.

I was partnered up with Fridge. I didn’t realize he was a King Crimson fan. Now I know.

I didn’t dislike a single song. He has some good tastes in music.

I’m up for it again. I loved my buddies taste in music, even though we had to stop midway through the week.
