    mnin's mini walrus

    my name is nothing and this walrus will surely be something

    you all know the drill at this point but tl;dr look at the categories and submit songs you think fit, win big if i love the songs you choose! easy enough, eh?

    keeping this one a little simple and short and sweet, wanna get a feel for hosting one of these before trying anything too crazy, expect a more fleshed out mnin-rus shortly after this one finishes

    alt subs both allowed and encouraged
    please send your subs as a list of links, i want to judge these blind
    feel free to submit on here or on discord (MyNameIsNothing#1760) (remove embeds if you submit on discord please!)

    DEADLINE: WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 15th 2021

    tastes
    all genres have potential to do well and tank hard
    lyrics only matter if they are particularly good or particularly bad
    general favorite genres: ambient, idm, house (and many other dance genres), art pop, noise pop, glitch, etc but please dont pigeonhole yourself into only subbing these genres~
    probs avoid: anything you may describe as “epic”, electro swing lol
    keeping this short but feel free to ask any questions in thread or elsewhere. check the banned artists for some all time favorites and last.fm/rym for everything else!
    https://www.last.fm/user/mninmnin (almost all my listening since late 2015 in one convenient place)
    https://rateyourmusic.com/~MyNameIsNothing (only have ratings from the past year or so, but good resource to see what i’ve scored well in that time)

    scoring
    0.0 to 10.0 scale
    +.5 if you score above an 8
    + an additional .5 if you score above a 9
    +1 if I haven’t heard the song before
    +1 if I haven’t heard ANYTHING by the artist submitted before
    =13 total possible points
    kind of big unfamiliarity bonuses but i really want to encourage people to sub me things i haven’t heard before. my last.fm and rym are linked in the “tastes” section, please take advantage of them!
    cats are pretty simple so catfit won't have a huge influence on score this time around

    categories

    1. post avant jazzcore is better than progressive dreamfunk: a song that is hard to define. something experimental, something genre-bending, something weird
    david tudor - rainforest iv
    giant claw - until mirror
    sweet trip - fruitcake and cookies

    2. obligatory sad cat: a song that tackles themes of grief, loss, death, or heartbreak. (songs that aren't inherently sad but tackle these themes also allowed!)
    circuit des yeux - walking toward winter
    kanye west - ghost town
    sophie - just like we never said goodbye

    3. sampled: a song that has BEEN sampled. inspiration for this cat comes from songs i heard AFTER i heard them used in a sample, but as long as its been sampled somewhere before you're fine. whosampled.com good resource for this if you dont have anything off the top of your head. dont worry about including where its sampled i'll look it up myself!
    if you're really struggling with this cat i'll allow songs that CONTAIN samples as well but this will lightly affect scoring if you go this route!
    dr. buzzard's original savannah band - sunshower sampled in M.I.A.'s "sunshower"
    delia derbyshire - pot au feu sampled in danny brown's "when it rain"
    eko roosevelt louis - tondoho mba sampled in disclosure's "tondo"


    4. lavender pillow: something to fall asleep to. ambient and its contemporaries obviously fit the bill, but anything hazy and dreamy likely to do well.
    belong - i never lose. never really
    grouper - headache
    el ten eleven - my only swerving


    5. jazz, metal, hip hop: literally just something from any of these 3 genres.
    pharaoh sanders - the creator has a master plan
    danny brown - ain't it funny
    deafheaven - dream house

    Now I'm tilted because I figured out exactly what I want to sub to 3 and the only place I knew to find the name was the comment section of a youtube video with 300 plays that has since been deleted.

    Checked there, way too obscure. It's a Japanese 80s pop tune.

    I did learn that the video was purged due to a cease and desist from whoever owns the original song.

    God bless corporate wisdom.

    Wow what a lame forum. Who Sampled requires you to contribute content to their site before you're allowed to post on it.

    Can you clarify it's the category name or the description that's overriding here? I have some sad songs that are ambiguous as to causality and I have songs about grief/loss/death/heartbreak which don't come across as being specifically sad. Or should I just aim for both?

    the description def takes precedence! i thought about including that in the description for the cat but yes, songs about death/grief/loss/heartbreak that aren't inherently sad are very valid catfits!


    a couple people have mentioned struggling with cat 3. i'll extend the category to include songs that contain samples i guess but will take that lightly into account when scoring.

    ty all for your subs so far im hype to start digging into these
