The idea is very simple. Every week a user makes a mix of modern rock songs for the rest of us here to listen to. We did this a few years ago, but then the website we used to upload the songs to stopped working because of copyright issues. We found a new website but the momentum was gone and the project died a lonely death. To usher some life and a bigger sense of community into this forum I decided to give it another shot.

Let's use www.8tracks.com to upload the tracks to. A mix is allowed at least 8 tracks, but only 1 song per artist.

Don't worry if you don't listen to all that much modern rock, it's not too hard to find a song or 10 to upload. I'm not going to slap you on the wrist for straying outside of the genre either.

I'm thinking of Saturday as mix day, since most people have the time to make one then and so everyone can listen on Sunday. Be quick to sign up or else you'll have to wait a couple of weeks for your turn.

Schedule:
Week 1 - 10/15 - Ben (BenRaah) - Rock/prog
Week 2 - 10/22 - Mike (Squall142) - Gangsta rap
Week 3 - 10/29 - Harry (hazzmatazz) - Weird rock stuff/Halloween
Week 4 - 11/5 - Kai (Uber-rocker) - "All rock, with a little roll here and there"
Week 5 - 11/12 - Steve (steve_muse) - Misc (I'm getting bad at this)
Week 6 - 11/19 - Will 1 (Alter-Bridge) - Lots of different stuff with guitars in it
Week 7 - 11/26 - David (edgeyyz) - A bunch of epics
Week 8 - 12/3 - Will (slipknot5678) - "Something of a post rock/ambient/dream pop thing going on here"
Week 9 - 12/10 - Dan (Dan_5893) - Enjoyable stuffz
Week 10 - 12/17 - Andy (badpun)
Week 11 - 12/24 - Stephen (stepco12345)
Week 12 - 12/31 - Aodhan (Duffman123) - A short reflection on the road to modern rock
Week 13 - 1/7 - ME! (frankv)
Week 14 - 1/14 - Ben again - dark electronic
Week 15 - 1/21 - D (iwannabesedated) - Manly manlove rock
Week 16 - 1/28 - Dr Foxylove (bradulator) - Break-up songs
Week 17 - 2/4 - Mike - Loud to soft alt rock (right?)
Week 18 - 2/11 - Harry - Wild experimental stuffz
Week 19 - 2/18 - David - Proggerrocker
Week 20 - 2/25 - Steve - Chillable stuff
Week 21 - 3/3 - Will 1 #2 - Rock and some other stuff
Week 22 - 3/10 - FRANK - Elevator to a higher plane
Week 23 - 2/17 - Will the Cock
Week 24 - 3/24 - Dan
Week 25 - 3/31 - Andy
Week 26 - 4/7 - D to the Onovan - grunge galore
Week 27 - 4/14 - Samoo
Week whatever - 6/29 - Butt Rayge

When it's your turn just make a new thread. Please link to here so people know where to sign up. Hopefully one of the mods can help to sticky the mixes.

Questions?

Added you both into the list in my thread too

Don't worry about that. If everyone just copies this thread's list when making their thread we should be fine.

On 8tracks, people can do two things: listen to a mix, or create a mix. Listeners can search for a mix by artist or genre, stream it in a legal, radio-style manner, and follow others who make compelling mixes. DJs upload MP3s or AACs to craft a playlist, add context with description and art, and publish their mix on 8tracks.com and a personal webpage.
Sucks bro. But maybe converting a couple of tracks isn't such a horrible thing to do. I'd go for AAC by the way, because I've read it's better than mp3.

And I'm gonna go ahead and add you already.

Same, with the listening habits. I've been listening to all kinds of new (to me) stuff and I need to figure what of all that I really like.

I hope I don't have to go first. Partly because that way I could give this thing a push later on when needed or so I could be a back-up when someone forgets, but also so I can let all this new music sink in for a bit.
#5
Not been around much lately, but I could probably throw one together for the first week. Might have to deviate from modern rock a little though.
#6
I'll occupy week 5 then.

You should totally put in our real names. That'll create your desirable ''sense of community''. Then again, mines is in the name.. lulz

I might as well do this too, hopefully I won't forget though. I'll take Week 7.
#16
I figured I might as well put it all together now, that way I at least won't have to worry about rushing it together. And in advance, my interpretation of "modern rock" is rather lenient.
#17
Good boy!

They do this in other forums too though. Classic rock, metal, hardcore, A&I and B&J all do it. So maybe including all your favourite dubstep tunes would be pushing it a little, but as long as you keep your MR audience in the back of your head you'll be fine.
#18
I'm willing to do this, but I don't have good taste in music.

Also, why do you have to ruin the fun? The Will debate can't be over just like this. I'm not giving in, now or ever!

I'll take the week for 12/3 as long as I'm the real Will. Alter Bridge can continue to be Will 1.

6/9 of us are regulars from the Muse Thread. I wonder what band may show up a lot... I put a skeleton one together, so I'll just change anything out that anyone else uses as long as I don't forget.
#25
^7 if you count Harry until he became a Muse threat renegade.

Anyone had problems uploading to 8tracks before? I've tried m4a and mp3 and most of my tracks just won't upload. It's a pain in the bum
#31
You know what? Sign me up for this. I don't listen to much modern rock anymore, but I believe I have a few things in my library that could fit the parameters.
#32
Christmas Eve, Stephen. You better wrap up a good present. Personally don't care if it's punk, folk, metal, indie, electronic, polka, rock or a Frankstein monster. Christmas is about the thought and all that jazz anyway, or so they (=cheap parents) say.

And I have the feeling we're planning way too far ahead with this.

I got it down to 50 minutes by removing Citizen Erased and changing my Karnivool song. Otherwise, I'm happy with my 10. Some of the bands are very well known, and I've just got them there because I like them, and others are bands people outside Australia probably haven't heard of.
