    Walrusception!! Groove Regainer Mini Walrus [Reveal dates can be found at top of OP]

    Third Reveal - The Long Haul - It Is A Mystery)



    Yes, I do currently have a walrus ongoing. Or rather, not ongoing. $%#! happened and the walrus came to a screeching halt. Time passed and... things were still halted, docs untouched, songs unlistened. Basically, the Emperor lost his groove.

    So what better way to get back into the swing of things than to do something unconventional and create a walrus solely for the purpose of getting my groove back and getting back into judging Four On The Floor. It’s walrusception time.


    Now on to the more standard part of the OP:

    What is Walrus? It's a forum game where you submit songs to me according to various categories and I rank and score them based on how much I like them.

    To join, simply sign up in this thread (or drop me a DM at BrainpanSonata#0280). Submissions must be done by PM/DM, including YouTube, Soundcloud, Bandcamp, or Vimeo links to your picks. One by one, categories will be revealed in the official walrus Discord server and the respective threads. Aim for the highest overall score, or play along for fun and the love of music.

    Scores will be logged and tracked via Google spreadsheet. Scoring is done on a 0.0-10.0 points range based on how much I enjoy a song and how well it fits the respective category. My scoring system runs along the same lines as MyAnimeList: 5s are boring, 6s are okay, 7s are good, 8s are great, 9s are awesome, and if you get a 4 or below ya dun goofed. Will anyone send me a 10 point masterpiece? We’ll see…

    The rules are as follows:

    1. Any categories you fail to submit for will automatically be scored 0. You can send submissions at any point up to the day before the respective category’s scheduled reveal. In some cases, depending on my schedule, I may be lenient enough to accept submissions up to the T-minus 12 hours mark. I will actively check in with players who have unfilled submissions to help prevent catfails.
    2. Any submissions which don't fit the qualifying requirements of their respective category will automatically be scored 0. For example, if I had a category about guitars and you subbed an acapella song, you would catfail.
    3. You will need to change your submission if it's a song I submitted to a previous walrus.
    4. You will need to change your submission if it's a song I used as an example, header, or outro in this walrus or my previous walruses. Yes, this does mean Watsky subs are more likely to get stamped Return To Sender.
    5. Tracking for rules 3 and 4 is solely the responsibility of the host. I will crosscheck all submissions and let you know if something needs to be changed. I will also let you know of any technical errors which might require you or me to change the links to your submissions.
    6. You will need to change your submission if I can't bring myself to listen to it in its entirety even once. This pertains not just to bands previously found in the banlist in Rule 10, but also to anything pitch shifted/chipmunked, played on a kazoo/vuvuzela/air horn, and/or painfully out of tune. If you value scoring high on the leaderboard, then this is not the hill you die on.
    7. If you send me a 240p or 144p vid and a better version is available, I reserve the right to switch to the better version. I may inform you privately if I do so, but I’m likely to forget. I also have a habit of doing this with music videos that vary noticeably from the official audio.
    8. If two or more players submit the same song for a category, the second (and third and so on) person to submit the song will be given the option to change their submission. If they decide to stick with it, it will be given a single score and the players involved will tie in that round's rankings. This type of tie will be expressed in dense ranking (eg. 1223) rather than standard competition ranking (eg. 1224).
    9. You can change your submissions at your leisure. As with late submissions, song changes will be accepted at any point up to the day before the respective category’s reveal. Unlike Rule 1, I will not accept T-12 hour sub swaps because getting in a song that may do better or worse isn’t as urgent as avoiding a 0.
    10. My ban list is Nickelback, Owl City, Operation Ivy, The Neighbourhood, Kings of Leon, and US band Backlash. Swedish band Backlash is okay, but I have too many issues with that trumped up Pink Floyd cover band by the same name.


    And your four impromptu categories are:

    Getcher Game On Redux
    4OTF started with music from video games. So let’s kick this groove revival off by sending me something to listen to during a gaming session. Anything goes here, so long as I can enjoy it during a multi-hour pokemon grind or dungeon rush with the game’s sound off. Yes, I will be gaming as I judge this cat. The trick to hitting the brief here is finding the balance between zone out background noise and “oops, I got distracted by the music and lost a life”.
    Examples:
    Preben Goes To Acapulco by Todd Terje
    Sad Statue by System Of A Down
    Something Underneath by clipping.

    Pop, POP!
    I wanna dip into something that I don’t really seek out when listening to music. Send me a mainstream pop song from a solo artist. Why solo artists? Things just worked out that way when I was picking my examples and header/outro. Plus I go out of my way to get my Kpop and Jpop fix from time to time, so blame the brief
    Examples:
    Firework by Katy Perry
    24K Magic by Bruno Mars
    Raise Your Glass by P!nk

    The Long Haul
    Long song cats have been done before, but why not do it again. Send me songs that are seven minutes or longer. If I’m gonna get back into judging a walrus that termi subbed to, I need to refresh my attention span.
    Note: 10 hour loops are still not allowed. I need to be able to judge your sub in a single sitting. For similar reasons (plus I don't want to do it again), I'm going to nix sending me entire albums. (Neither of these clauses have anything to do with termi.)
    Examples:
    Siberian Breaks by MGMT
    Jesus of Suburbia by Green Day
    Roundabout by Yes

    Moog Music
    With this, I’ve covered almost every instrument under the sun. Send me a song which features synthesizers.
    Examples:
    Rydeen by Yellow Magic Orchestra
    Bury It by CHVRCHES
    Point of Know Return by Kansas

    No FAQ this time. If you’re new to my walruses, just know that I’m down for anything and have a tendency to score ridiculously high with lots of ties. And if you’re wondering about my methodology for Getcher Game On Redux, I’ll be setting each song to play on repeat during various gaming sessions so I can create the proper judging conditions without having to interrupt myself as often.

    As for the deadline… Let's say two weeks. Deadline to get in at least one song from your quartet is Saturday, August 14th.
    In MU terms: 8/14 GOOD 8/15 BAD.

    Okay, I know I'm being a fussbudget, but please note that indie pop exists in opposition to mainstream pop. In the pop category, I'm looking for names that get a lot of radio play and Billboard 100 spots.

    UPDATE: The Ship of Theseus (which is a name my new computer totally deserves) now has a new monitor. Why does this matter to you? Because it means I'll be using a new built-in sound system for walrus judging. Everything except the unrelated peripherals are new and shiny, and I think I'm going to try and sync up my bluetooth headphones to it instead of using my Skullcandy Jibs. Will it make everything sound even better than before? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I have extended signups to the 21st due to a minor injury that might serve as a distraction during judging. If you want to read more about it, head into Amy's Pinniped Emporium discord server. And if you haven't sent me your gaming sub, do so before the new deadline!

    Two things:
    1) We reached 20 contestants! Woo!
    2) I didn't mention this before, but having already created a gaming playlist to add your gaming subs to means crosschecking for rules 3 and 4 includes checking said playlist to make sure it's not already there. If I haven't brought it up with you before logging your subs, then you're gucci.

    Due to multiple circumstances, I have decided to keep signups open to the end of the month. I promise I'm referring to August and not September, except I make no promises.

    Walrusception signups are officially closed! We're capping out at a nice, round 20!

    Due to the unorthodox judging method being used for the first round, the first reveal is TBD with a general time frame of two weeks or so. An actual reveal date and time will be posted before then.

    Yo, gaming reveal on Tuesday the 21st at 4pm CDT (9pm UTC).

    Round One: Getcher Game On Redux »
    Round One: Getcher Game On Redux
    Some of you may already know that I made a playlist to coincide with this round, built on the same judging criteria for the category (mainly that I don't like being bored while I try to grind a character to level X or desperately search for a pokemon when it seems like the spawn rate has suddenly shifted to 0%).
    The playlist can be found here for anyone who's interested.
    Some of the contestants' subs qualified for addition to the playlist and will be added in after the reveal.


    This round's header is Frame Perfect by Falconshield.

    Let The Music (Use You) (Club Mix) by The Night Riders

    There’s a nice driving rhythm in that bassline. Unfortunately, it’s got a repetitive xylophone hook and sudden noisemakers over it that are distracting and annoying me. It’d be a great song in most other situations, but it’s a swing and a miss for this category.

    Cloudy Room by The Twang

    I may not be a speedrunner, but one thing I want in my playlist is a sense of speed. All the better to keep my energy from flagging while I’m on a grinding slog. And this doesn’t really get me what I want. The second half certainly picks up, but there’s some janky rhythm in the… idk if that’s the chorus or the pre-chorus. Either way, I don’t like how it slows down there.

    Waltz For Venus by Kendall Miles & Mukashi

    A promising attempt, but it falls short of making the cut for me. The instrumental gets too repetitive with multiple listens and the tempo’s a hair’s breadth slower than I’m looking for.

    If I Was A Folkstar by The Avalanches

    It’s chiller and a bit slower than the general pace of the playlist, but the field noises that seem to naturally flow in the backing are a nice touch. I know I keep saying I’ll eventually start a chill music playlist, but, uh… this time I actually did it. Congrats, Earl, you got onto a playlist, just not the one you were expecting.

    Your Beard Is Good by Liquid Tension Experiment

    Long song is long. Prog song is prog. Does that make it a good fit for the gaming playlist? Not quite. If there was some more zip to it, it’d be in the playlist. But a great prog song is still a prog song, and as with most prog songs, tempo is a variable rather than a constant here.

    Touch-Tone Telephone by Lemon Demon

    Despite my penchant for all things Mouth, I don’t have much familiarity with Cicierega’s Lemon Demon discography. I like how bouncy this is. The sfx seemed a little iffy at first, but this seems like it’d be a breath of fresh air in a playlist made for monotonous level grinding.

    Salt, ddlc, and nutella snag high scores. Congratulations to the aforementioned three, plus Punchy, Leb, and shub for getting their subs on the gaming playlist, and to Earl for kicking off a second playlist.

    Next up is Pop, POP! We’ll pop off on Thursday the 30th at 4pm CDT (9pm UTC).
    [NOTE: This date coincides with an MU mash game. Rescheduling may occur depending on circumstances.]

    And when the last minute plans that caused the delay get delayed themselves, that's called delayception. We'll just have to wait until Tuesday the 12th.

    I was hoping to get the miniwalrus done before Halloween, but that looks less likely now. Sorry about that.

    Time to blow this pop stand!
    shub, Leb, and nutella are popping corks. But we’ve still got two rounds to go and anyone can pop into the lead at this point.

    Next round is The Long Haul. We’ll settle in for a music marathon on Saturday the 23rd at 2pm CDT (7pm UTC). Heck, maybe 1 pm (6pm UTC). We’ll be there for a good while, after all.

    In case you haven't been following along in Amy's Pinniped Emporium:

    I've got a couple of things that have put the Long Haul reveal date into TBD status. One of them is this year's hydra event and the other one literally has my hands tied (with yarn). I do expect to finish the miniwalrus before the end of the year, but I'm not in a position to set any concrete dates right now. When reveals are ready, they will be announced in advance. Thank you for your patience.
    Mouth Maestro: yes, i'm trash, but just you try getting your dopamine somewhere else
    Marshal: not only did knights have a shot on a wolf

    but it was their birthday
    BrainpanSonata: I'm so disrespected that I tried to post a Rodney Dangerfield gif... and MU crashed!

Role of the Day
Freezer

The Freezer may each night target a player. This will cause two effects, one of them delayed. The night on which the action is used the target will be frozen in place and will be roleblocked. On the following night the target will still be dethawing, causing the target to be unable to be protected.
