Title: Time for another draft... this time: Music
Post by: charlie on February 09, 2012, 02:09:36 PM
Do you guys want to do another draft?

If so, we're doing Music this time. The question is whether we want to draft albums, songs, or artists.

If we get a decent number of people saying yes to any of those subjects, then we'll run the one with the most votes. I'll be the tiebreaker since I'm the commish.

If you have questions on how any of those would be run, let me know here. Mostly they'll be run like the other drafts we have done.

Artists.  Or Songs.  I think Albums is a horrible idea, no offense Jake.

It's like picking a single chapter out of a book.
Or a single boob of a woman

I think artists makes the most sense if this is to be a contest.  I bet most people here are like me and wouldn't recognize or care to research over 75% of the album names mentioned in this draft.  Plus forces a bit more variety to those who might have many albums from the same group in their top 10.

Just curious, ober, what's wrong with albums?

I guess if you just don't listen to albums it could be a little harder, but I'm not figuring out why it's bad enough to not play when you'd play one of the other two.

What would you research? Your own picks? I wouldn't research others unless I was interested in them. For voting and whatnot if I have never heard of it then it better have good cover art or it means nothing to me.

I mean for voting.  When I see that final list of a hundred albums of everyone's choices and I know less than a third of them, whats the point in voting?

Plus I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if there was little to no overlap if each of us posted our top 10 albums.  Picking artists at leasts makes this more of a competition instead of us just listing our favorite albums.

That's fine. I don't take the voting all that seriously, but of course it makes it more fun if there's more overlap.

I'm cool however we do it. And of course we don't have to stop at 10. I'd prefer to do like 16, but we'll see what everybody else can stomach.

if we don't choose albums, what is charlie going to use for the images to show who picked what? HUH
Title: Re: Time for another draft... this time: Music
Post by: charlie on February 09, 2012, 08:34:26 PM
We're screwed.


Seriously... I can't vote without images. I get confused and there's nothing but letters to sway me.
Title: Re: Time for another draft... this time: Music
Post by: ober on February 09, 2012, 10:04:22 PM
You can still use the image from an album of the artist or the album the song came from if we go that route.  PJ listed my reasoning.

Yeah, I'm not so keen on albums... and even if we linked to youtube vids of songs there would be too many to listen to for voting... so artists is looking good right about now.
Title: Re: Time for another draft... this time: Music
Post by: charlie on February 15, 2012, 01:34:43 PM
Alright, thanks to one more vote we don't have a tie. We'll do artists.

Hopefully the three people who didn't vote artists will still play. I'll put up the details in the next day or so. In the meantime, who is definitely playing?

charlie
ober

micah
Jake


ethic, you'll play anyway, right?

Who else?

I'm in.

Is the purpose to win or to look like a douchebag hipster who knows whats cool.... "but you've probably never heard of them."

For example, I don't like the beatles but I might pick them just to whore out for votes.

Neither.

But definitely not the second. I actually just did an artists draft on another site and half of the 16 drafters were douchebag hipsters (well, they weren't all douchebags, but 80% of the artists in the draft I'd never heard of).

The point is whatever you want it to be, but I think it works best if the point is to pick your favorites strategically. So if you like the Beatles and would like them on your list of 20 artists, then you might want to pick them first even if they aren't your favorite. If your favorite band is a garage band nobody has ever heard of, then pick them last instead of first.

But really, do whatever you want.

Sorry.. I got busy or at least decided to get busy trying to work on what I've been busy with, so I didn't get to this yet. We'll see how I feel this week... If I get a lot of my busywork done we'll get started, although I'd prefer more than 6 players.
