    Walruses Never Die

    If you guys are looking for a bit of mayhem, you're in the right place. This walrus will be slightly unusual in that the judge is deaf and her music tastes are fairly obscure - we'll see how this goes!

    A bit of background for those confused by the "deaf" comment: I am 100% deaf in both ears and use bilateral cochlear implants. Cochlear implants are not to be confused with hearing aids as hearing aids do not require surgical implantation. If anyone's more curious about this, feel free to ask questions. I don't bite much.

    Now, if I use cochlear implants, how do I listen to music? Glad you asked! I got a cochlear implant update about a year ago and the fantastic thing about this model is that it has bluetooth capabilities - as in I can stream audio from my phone directly to my implants. The only downside is that I have not yet figured out how to make it work on my computer because it requires a specific app.

    So, considering my unique circumstances, I do ask that all song submissions have lyrics that are relatively easy to look up. And are mobile friendly.

    Enough rambling, let's get into the good stuff.


    The Goal
    Since I am deaf, I have found it hard to expand my music tastes from what I am familiar with and used to. Therefore, I've decided that having a bunch of strangers on the internet sending me songs is the perfect way to expand my horizons. Nothing could possibly go wrong with that.

    How To Submit
    I'll take submissions through PM on here or on discord. My discord username is the same as my username here.
    No alts will be accepted.

    Submission Deadline
    Because I am a benevolent host, and because I happen to be posting this the same day that Keldeo posted his sign ups (he said it was okay before you start coming at me), I'm making the submission deadline March 31st. The reveal will be roughly a week later. You have my permission to spam me with pings if I happen to take longer than that.

    What I'll Accept
    I'm not excluding anything because the whole point of this is to expose me to new types of music, so have at it. Within reason. No making all seven of your songs metal to troll me (looking at you Shad).

    What I Currently Listen To
    Acapella, Hamilton, country, folk music, etc
    I told you my music tastes are weird. Don't judge me.

    Submission Rules
    I want seven songs from each person submitting. You do not have to do one per category, just make it seven songs and I'll be happy. Why seven? It's my favorite number. Deadline is March 31st, no exceptions. Please make sure you tell me which song you are submitting to which category.

    Categories
    1. Foreign languages
    Send me a song that is sung in any language other than English. If you can get some instruments in there that aren't usually in english songs please do.

    2. Songs inspired by books
    Stretch the interpretation of this one as much as you want. If you can justify it to me and have it make sense I'll take it. I'm a well known bibliophile so I just had to throw this in here. Oh, or songs that inspired books. I'll take that too.

    3. Songs that make you want to cry
    I'm in need of a good cry. Make it happen.

    4. Folk Songs
    Doesn't matter what culture or country it originates from. You're mafia players, get creative.

    5. A song about a deep topic
    I'm purposely making this one broad. Bonus points for triggering an existential crisis.

    6. Songs about nature
    Human nature or nature nature, take your pick. Ode to the West Wind comes to mind, even though that's a poem. Eh, it still fits the category.

    7. Free category
    I might regret having a free category but here you go. The one stipulation is that you're only allowed to have one song in your submission be in the free category.

    Scoring
    I'll rank the songs in each category and whichever song got last place will get 1 point, with 1 pt increases for each increase in rank up until the top song.

    Contestants:
    1. KnightsOfCydonia (subbed)
    2. nutella (subbed)
    3. catgode
    4. LordQuas (subbed)
    5. starryeyeddream (subbed)
    6. cl. (subbed)
    7. zwerdjib
    8. gbsfranca (subbed)
    9. Logic
    10. BLOODYRAIN10001 (subbed)
    11. Puns ltd (subbed)
    12. smilefires (subbed)
    13. Jalandh (subbed)
    14. M Plus 7 (subbed)
    15. iaafr (subbed)
    16. shubaka17 (subbed)
    17. Moonious (subbed)
    18. Zinnia (subbed)
    19. silmarils (subbed)
    20. Visorslash (subbed)
    21. Owner of A Lonely Heart (subbed)

    This is my first walrus, so if you have any questions, comments, or critiques about anything I've outlined here, don't hesitate to let me know.
    Also, if you feel like a category might not get enough interest and want to recommend a different one feel free.

    A note to anyone playing in the mash: reveals will be over before the mash starts.

    Hey guys! Just a friendly reminder that the deadline for subs is in three days (the 31st). As I need to get reveals finished before the bastard mash begins, I can't accept them any later than that. If you no longer want to participate that's also fine by me, just please let me know.

    Now if this were the actual competition, I am sure I have a better chance to win it, lmao.

    Seriously though, I am absolutely interested in subbing to this. Expect my submission by the end of this weekend.

    Sorry I missed out on this. I'm just dealing with some personal issues unrelated to anything big in the news.

    Alright, reveals for the foreign language cat are now commencing.

    In last (18th) place, shocking nobody I'm sure, is Puns Ltd.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5hrUGFhsXo

    I honestly should not have expected anything else from puns ltd. This song is just… there are no words. No english words at least.

    The annoyingly high pitched notes in the intro kind of set the tone of the whole song for me. I’m sorry, but this type of music isn’t something that I could ever see myself enjoying.

    There’s not much else I can say for this one. I like being able to hear actual instruments and the electronic kind of music just doesn’t do that for me.

    I like the calming feel of this song even if I don’t necessarily like the actual music. There is a certain sound at the beginning that just rubs me the wrong way, I don’t know how I’d describe it.

    This isn’t really what I expected to get in a foreign language sub but it still counts. I can’t really put my finger on why I’m so inclined to dislike this song, but I just do. It’s not my type of music at all.

    The beat of the song is good. The singing is not imo. Sounds more like they are screaming the lyrics when they get really into it.

    The message of this song is certainly one I can get behind, but the music and singing itself is a bit too rough for my taste.

    The intro was deceptively calming. I liked the background music aside from a sound that was similar to sandpaper in my opinion. The singer(s)? have such lovely voices and they were rather drowned out at times. This isn’t really something I would voluntarily listen to again.

    First impression was that of a decent intro, if a bit high pitched. The singer has a very good voice though. The instrumental was alright, nothing special in my opinion. I also feel that at several points throughout the song the singer was having to raise their voice to be heard over the music and I’m someone who believes that the music shouldn’t overpower the singer too much. The outro where the music fades away was a very satisfying ending to the song.
    There wasn’t much variation as the song progressed.

    It's very interesting that this song seems to switch from calm to fast paced and loud. I very much preferred the calm sections. The intro started out pretty good. The last fourth of the song is what put it ahead of knights.

    Just a heads up but that link doesn't work.

    I honestly should not have expected anything else from puns ltd. This song is just… there are no words. No english words at least.

    The singers here are very talented and I enjoyed the music and the beat for a while until it started feeling really repetitive. Overall a decent song.

    The music itself is pretty good. I’m not liking the singer’s voice all that much though. If I had this one could have gotten a higher ranking.

    I love that you can clearly hear the passion in his voice. It’s a very upbeat song and even if you don’t understand a word he’s saying, you can’t help but be a bit cheered up by listening to this.

    The singer sounds - to me - similar to some american country singers. I like the vocals, I’m kind of ambivalent on the music itself though.

    This is a pretty enjoyable song, the lead singer has a good voice with a bit of twang to it. There’s not much that’s bad about this song.

    I am blown away by this performance. There are several instruments present here that I have never heard before. The latter half of the song was my favorite, when the vocals took more of a precedence in the song. Very enjoyable to listen to.

    I loved the intro to this song, it has a very upbeat vibe to it. This is not the type of music I would normally listen to but it’s a really good song.

    The way the beginning of this song was very slow and it gradually built up sounded amazing. When all of the singers came in it gave me chills. Truly a wonderful work of art.
