    Christmas Mini Walrus



    There might be zero interest in this, but let's see.

    Submission Deadline: December 16th

    Reveal date(s):
    If < 8 submissions, all categories will probably be revealed on a single weeknight of my convenience on the week of the 16th at 8pm EST.
    If 8+ submissions, reveals will be split between either two evenings at 8pm or else the first two categories will be revealed around 11am EST. I mean, it's Christmas music. This is about as work friendly as you'll ever get. See poll.

    Minimum to run:
    5 submissions.

    Grading:
    I will very likely simplify this and just give everything a +1 score of 1 through however many submissions I receive.

    What to submit:
    Literal Christmas music, or something distinctly wintry. I'll err on the side of leniency, but please don't send anything too abrasive or trolly. "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" or a death metal rendition of Jingle Bells is probably going to be omitted from the playlist. I want this to be something people can comfortably put on in the background if they wish and go about their business.

    The categories:

    1. Something Classic
    Pretty straight forward. I want to avoid samples because the pool is relatively small to begin with, but I can say I would prefer classy over country.

    2. Something Imaginative
    Send something that sparks a feeling of magic. Uh, whatever that is. You can PM me for some samples, but again I don't want to rule out anything across the board.

    3. Something Subdued
    Instrumentals will generally do well here. The track doesn't necessarily need to be holistically peaceful, though a lot of examples that come to mind are. Just keep it low key, maybe a bit minimalistic.

    4. Something Spiritual
    Obviously a lot of appropriate submissions for this will be lyrically Christian, but that's not a requirement; I'm certainly not going to judge you either way. But I do want to hear a song that achieves that feeling of making a connection to something bigger than itself. It can be solemn or joyous or any other aesthetic medium you find appropriate. I can be loose with the overarching Christmas theme of the Walrus, but if I'm not feeling some semblance of a connection to it on any level I'll probably mark you down a bit.
    This was already subbed by Zack to one of my other walruses, so here's a sample of something I would consider highly spiritual and close enough Christmasy: Sufjan Stevens - The Transfiguration

    I mean, it's not appreciably different from turning on the radio.

    I'm afraid I cannot abide by the gross misidentification of aquatic mammalia in the original post. You see, the popular online forum game involving the submission of music commonly referred to as "Walrus" references the pinniped Odobenus rosmarus, a proud species of tusked blubbery fellows- yet the illustration in your original post clearly depicts a Trichechus manatus (West Indian manatee, also referred to as the American manatee) wearing a festive yule hat and posing seductively for the artist. Not only are these species wildly distinct, they do not even share an order, as Trichechus manatus is one of the few noble aquatics in the order Sirenia, having earned the venerable title of "sea cow."

    As such, your judgement on such matters has been called into question and any parties interested in submitting to this Christmas-themed "Manatee" should be made aware of its host's frighteningly limited knowledge in this area. Good day.

    Bump. I've got I think 4 subs? but not enough to run it. Deadline is Sunday. I'd rather call it than run it with subs that were sent just to fill a quota, but if it's something that actually interests you and you just haven't gotten around to it yet, hit me up.
