Thread: Sunbae's Mini Walrus (CAT 1 REVEAL!!!)

  1. ISO #1

    Sunbae's Mini Walrus (CAT 1 REVEAL!!!)

    Sunbae's 4 category Mini Walrus

    Note
    There have been a ton of entries to recent Walrus events so I've decided to go with a mini walrus. Worst case scenario is that I get less entries than I anticipate which would just mean a second mini walrus after.

    Overview
    Entries will close on August 15th or when there are 15 entries. Enter via pm to me with links to your songs on youtube (preference) or spotify (if not on youtube). I won't begin listening to anything until after entries are closed so no late entries (15th good, 16th bad going by Eastern time). It will likely take a couple of weeks after entries close before I am able to score everything and reveal. The reveal will be done in thread by making a separate post for each entry received starting with the 4th worst score and ending with the 4th highest score. The remaining order will be 3rd worst, 3rd best, 2nd worst, 2nd best, worst, and finally best (anti podium sweat!). I will reveal one category per day of reveal, but there will likely be days between each category reveal.



    Scoring
    Entries will be scored via ranking. The best score will be 1 (for 1st place). At the end of the four reveals I'll add up everyones points and the lowest total wins.


    Goal for me
    I am attempting to find new music. With each category I have provided 1-3 examples of songs I would call home runs for the category and my tastes. However, I will be factoring in whether or not I know the song into my scoring. If you submit a song I've heard a bunch and love, you might score lower than someone who submits a song I have not heard and like. These distinctions will be arbitrary and not an exact science.


    Tastes
    While I can find enjoyment from any genre, I prefer upbeat things that I can dance around to. Being unable to identify lyrics is going to be a hard sell (looking at you screamo/metal/mumble rap) but not impossible. Pleasing vocals are more important to me than any technical aspects of the music itself. If you don't want to go for upbeat, I'm also usually a fan of slower tracks with a heavy emphasis on emotion in the vocals/lyrics (example: Rilo Kiley- More Adventurous ) Hopefully the examples provided give a pretty solid direction.






    Categories
    I tried to make the categories self-explanatory. Provided are examples that I would declare 10/10 submissions. Of course don't actually submit those but they should guide you on what I was thinking.

    Category 1: Something that makes you happy

    10/10 examples:
    Metric – Gimmie Sympathy
    Gorillaz – 19 2000 (Soulchild Remix)
    Electric Light Orchestra - Mr Blue Sky


    Category 2: Something that isn't in English

    10/10 example:
    Red Velvet – Russian Roulette
    Luis Fonsi ft Daddy Yankee – Despacito


    Category 3: Something that's live

    10/10 example:
    No Doubt - Don't Speak (Live in Rio)


    Category 4: Something to chill to

    10/10 example:
    Sneaker Pimps – Loretta Young Silks
    Chaos Chaos - Do You Feel It?

    oooh the approach to reveal order is interesting


    will sub

    the fact that 19-220 (soulchildremix) is in your list and it is one of my favourite happy good vibes summer songs explains why I like you so much. :X

    And yeah, you could totally cap the number of submissions! I’m going to do that the next time I host a solo walrus for sure.

    Good call

    I'm gonna cap at 15.

    If it reaches the cap I'll start the reveal earlier. Editing op to show update

  21. ISO #21
    Question: For Categories other than 2, will there be scoring punishments for submitting something not in English?

    Answer: Absolutely not! If a song fits the category then go for it! I know I mentioned liking vocals but I can still enjoy a pleasing voice even if I don't understand the words.
    Also, 3 spots left!

    Okay, I figured mine out. Hype!

  23. ISO #23
    That filled way faster than I anticipated!

    Sorry to those that got locked out.

    I'm going to start listening to songs and begin scoring. I'll update the thread when I have a reveal date ready.

  24. ISO #24
    So I want to talk a bit about how I'm going to handle the actual process of scoring entries.

    There are 15 entries. I'm going to take all thinks from a category, shuffle them up, and listen to them in a row without the names attached. As I listen to each song, I'm going to place it in the general area I think it should be in. Then I'm going to come back to it a day or two later and listen to it in numerical order from best to worst and see if adjustments should be made. I'll then take another day or two before listening to the list a third time starting from the worst and adjusting as I go. At that point I should be comfortable with where the songs are and I'll schedule a reveal for the category. I do it this way to make sure my mood nor any fatigue at the end of the session negatively affects things.

    I am hoping to have the first category reveal in around 7-10 days.

    Yay, I’m excited! Glad you’re enjoying it already.

  28. ISO #28
    I just got through with the second listen through and the final one will happen either tomorrow or Tuesday.

    Teaser update:
    - The largest shift in rank up from listen 1 to listen 2 was three places.
    - The largest shift in rank down from listen 1 to listen 2 was seven places!
    - There was only one song that I've heard that version of before.
    - There was one song where I ranked it poorly, the auto player on youtube played their next song, and it would have scored at least 5 spots higher than the submitted song.

    All around great job. For example the song currently in 12th is one that I looked at its placement at the end, said "that song was solid, 12 seems low" and then realized that I didn't like it more than the things ahead of it. Extremely strong category.

    The first category is officially scored! I'll start working on category 2 soon.

    Edit: Category 1 will be revealed Friday afternoon at 5pm Eastern unless that clashes with another reveal. Please let me know if it does.

    Do people just reveal in the same thread or do they make a reveal thread?

    Reveal hype! In hindsight I shouldn't have subbed 100% guilty pleasure music for Cat 1 but oh well, if there was a walrus to do it in it was probably this one

    No such thing. Your happiness is valid and important. Music doesn't have to be epic and grimdark for it to be worthwhile!

    Joy is a good enough reason!

    Sunbae are you going to reveal on discord or does it ever just happen in the thread?

  39. ISO #39
    I am going to reveal in the thread. One, I am not in the discord. Two, not everyone can follow along with the discord so I want them to be able to catch up on the full reveal instead of just the final charts.

    For those that prefer the reveal listening parties, I'm sure someone can post the songs in the music bot channel as I post them for people to listen along.

    Huh, interesting! I’ve not personally subbed to a walrus that didn’t have a discord reveal party, but I’m excited nonetheless and down for whatever you want to do as the walrus host. I am definitely looking forward to it!

    For those that prefer the reveal listening parties, I'm sure someone can post the songs in the music bot channel as I post them for people to listen along.
    Huh, interesting! I’ve not personally subbed to a walrus that didn’t have a discord reveal party, but I’m excited nonetheless and down for whatever you want to do as the walrus host. I am definitely looking forward to it!
    Hopefully it will still be fun
    Well, one plus is that you eliminate any discord bot issues that may occur!

    Before we begin I want to explain how I judged this category.

    The name of this category was “Something that makes you happy” not “Something that will make me happy”. I judged the songs on how much I liked them, not whether they were what I considered “happy”. That's a small but relevant distinction between the two and it came into play at least once where there was a song that I scored well despite it not being a “happy” song to me.
