    Wee Jock's Wee little Walrus

    OK this is my first Walrus, I only just found out about this idea and I love it.

    My taste in music is eclectic but i generally like anything edgy/experimental/creative. Not a fan of country music or super cheesy pop (including k-pop and j-pop - sorry!)
    If you have a choice between something depressing and something happy choose the depressing one for points.

    25 players max

    Deadline is 21st August.

    Reveals will probably be happening in the first and second weeks after the deadline and will probably be around 9-10pm UK time (I'm flexible if i need to be tho)

    Categories:

    1: Sound of the underground:

    Send me a youtube video with less than 400 views. Don't use an alternative upload to a more popular video, I'll know and you will get nil poi. It can be absolutely anything but if I've heard it before you will be docked points also so the more obscure the better.

    These Violent Delights - MANTRA
    Pakasteet with Charles Hayward - Lukossa

    2: You must be tripping.

    My good friend is having an indoor lone party with a psychedelic substance. Let's make him trip out. It can be scary or lovely, whatever really, but layers are important in these songs. If you have heard a song 20 times and are still discovering new things about it those are the kind of tunes that will do well. Weird is good. Traditional 'psychedelic' music ala the Beatles or Pink Floyd might be a little too obvious.

    Examples:
    Helvetia - Stompbox
    Can - Paperhouse
    Venetian Snares - Tattoo

    3: Paint me a Picture

    This is a lyrical category. I'm not asking for a song that tells a story, but a song that paints a very specific and vivid picture, whether that is of a person or a scenario, although a song that does both is fine, but this is all about the imagery.

    Examples
    Clipping - Inside out
    Peter Gabriel - The Rhythm of the Heat
    Saul Williams - Robeson(best example!)

    4: What on Earth is that sound?

    Send me a song with weird instruments. These could be traditional folk instruments from hundreds of years ago or homemade electronic stuff, it doesn't matter, but the sound should be interesting and make me want to find out more.

    Examples
    King Gizzard and Lizard Wizard - Billabong Valley
    Dead Can Dance - Severance

    5: No justice, No peace!

    This cat is all about protest songs. General political songs will do as long as there's an element of protest about it.

    Examples:
    System of a Down - Prison Song
    GNOD - Bodies for Money
    Kate Bush - Breathing (this one's political to me anyway)

    6: Music of the Middle East

    I never get to hear things from the mideast so i'm hoping to be put on to new things here. Western music with a heavy middleeastern influence is allowed, but will probably score lower.
    No examples cos I don't know anything about this kind of music!

    7: 60s Ladies

    This is for female artists from the 60s. I'll probably score higher if they wrote or produced the song.

    Examples:
    White Noise (avec Delia Derbyshire) - Love Without Sound (1969)
    Cilla Black - Anyone Who Had A Heart

    8: Choirs

    The title says it all. Any song with a choir involved. Easy

    Examples:
    Baz Luhrmann - Everybody's Free To Wear Sunscreen
    John Tavener - Funeral Canticle
    Scoring will be out of 10. Final scores out of 80 will determine the winner.

    yeah I had a long think about a good number of views to limit it at. At first I said 1000, but i was hoping to encourage people to go find random stuff, either from their local area or long forgotten DIY and underground stuff. There is too much almost mainstream/known stuff with around 1000 views.
    It will be super hard, but its also the cat i'm most interested in seeing the results for

    I light threw 7.

    The rest are solid and 7 is at least historically interesting.

    Oh damn I found a second upload of my cat 1 sub with 1400 views.

    One tricky thing about this category is the older the music is the more likely it's going to pass 400 via random clicking. Tried to dig up a couple ideas I thought might fit and they all have like 800 views over the course of 10 years.

    I mean I have hundreds of options for this cat.

    But you're inevitably getting black metal.

    400 was indeed difficult even if doable, especially for stuff that's not recent. It should be fun though!

    In case it gets lost in the discord, I'll ask here, too: are cover songs allowed for Cat 1?

    Nvm about cover songs, YouTube gave me a miracle. But I gotta say, everything in my subscriptions- including the knitting tutorials- pulls at least 2k views.

Role of the Day
Witch

The Witch is an independently aligned player who can target and control another player every night. The target will be notified that they are being controlled. The Witch's action will only work on roles that have abilities that target other people at night, and the action controlled by the Witch cannot be roleblocked. Furthermore, the Witch will be viewed as town-aligned if investigated. The Witch is allowed to make players self-target or even target the Witch. The Witch wins the game by surviving to see the town lose the game.
