considering the actual warhead on even the biggest missiles is only a few feet in each dimension, those would be damn big bombs!

btw, or what!

lol yes true, but i'm not a rocket scientist, and there's no need to make it small unless you want to move it. And i think you and i could perform one of the plans i'v seen given someone supplies the plutonium and stuff, while i'm not so sure i could build a high tech bomb in a tiny briefcase

if you noticed in Mr. Lil' Rascal King's speech it noted about getting the listeners more involved into what was happening in the mix instead plainly voting on tunes they enjoyed. you honestly dont feel that you can be creative enough with interpeting each phase of the theme with different tunes,generes and samples? my mistake thinking that the dj's here would have the skills or creativity, look at the previous comps the average tracklist were 5-7 songs in 40 minutes now your complaining about not being able to have more then 10?. the purpose of the 10 tracks to coincide with the phases was to give the listeners a good reference as to what is happening and wether the dj accomplished it or not. but if you feel that you need more then 10 songs then post time markings for each phase like you did for the mashup. or you can post your themes if you added or took away. Dustwave and Dogfax you guys are like two year olds throwing a temper-tamtrum. i could give two sh*ts about how long transitions are, and to think you wouldnt wanna compete cause you think you cant be creative enough by being limited to 10 tracks is just plain silly. Dogfax you use software anyways, so you do have an unlimited tune selection. personally i think it makes it more of a challenge to be limited by the number of songs. im not taking away your freedom, im making you be more technical, more selective, and more creative with the tools you are given.

on the other hand i like the new order of themes, i meant to change it cause it was kinda out of order before.

It would seem from the post that Im deff in the minority so dont go changing it for my sake. Just that I will sit this one out for the above reasons.
you did well with 10 tracks last time mate (I believe we're counting mashups as one track)...

12 - Doggy
1. FLOWJOB vs ARMIN VAN BUUREN-RUN BABY RUN, NEVER WANTED THIS 0-6.20
2. FLOWJOB vs BJORK-RUN BABY RUN, HUMAN BEHAVIOUR 6.29-7.45
3. FLOWJOB vs MOBY-RUN BABY RUN, BODY ROCK 7.45-8.28
4. A300 vs LASGO-CLOSE TO THE CRASH, CLOUD SURFERS 8.28-13.42
5. ARTCORE vs BREAK OF DAWN-TWEAKY, RHYTHM ON THE LOOSE 13.14-19.30
6. PFN vs DE LA SOUL-PHILTER, KEEPIN' THE FAITH 19.02-23.42
7. PPS PROJECT vs DIGITAL ENEMY-AC vs DC,RUNAWAY 23.25-28.40
8. BREAKAGE vs DURAN DURAN-SO VAIN, COME UNDONE 28.33-31.34
9. RONI SIZE vs ANDAIN-STRICLY SOCIAL (NU: TONE REMIX),BEAUTIFUL THINGS 31.12-35.00
10. DOUGAL-CRACK WHORE

I quite like this Heist idea, its creative, different, unifying, yet will also still allow the personalities of the DJs to shine through!!

ps can someone pls put some hardcore in their mix, it would be a delicious treat for mah ears *yum yum*

Honestly, i think that is the lamest thing i have ever heard, and that is while i live and grew up in a country that is famous for it's insane overhead of incredibly stupid rules for every little detail.

That limit doesn't add to creativety. Yes it adds some creativety, but takes away even more. There is nothing more technical about 10 tracks opposed to 15, besides having more time for each transition, and thus making it easier. If you can do it with 15 you sure can with 10. This is about making a creative set and having fun, and rules limit overall creativety and possibilities by definition. And don't compare this to the previous competition, this is too different, you can't compare it.

My idea never was to stick to the 10 phases given, or ten other phases. That is not what i agreed with. I was going to do any (reasonable) number of phases i would feel was right. I don't want to be selective, i want to play just what i want, when i want. But if this is gonna turn out to be a competition guided by more rules than it takes for a small country to function properly then i am out. Not just because of the 10 track rule, but the fact that there are more and more rules, and that this is more and more about the technical skills, which are in my opinion the very least important. This just no fun anymore to me. I hope you guys enjoy.

did you not notice the other options i put in there? if you want more songs then time stamp them or make up your chapters to be posted for a guide to the listener

if you wish to do a mix of what you want and not be selective make a mix for the ssp thread

The timestamp thing is what several people have mentioned before, yet it remained unmentioned in the "unofficial rules" as posted several times. Each time it was stated as "10 tracks, or more if in mashups".

New rules look a lot better.

Ok.. two points.. Describing me as a two year old having a temper tantrum is a bit harsh.. I thought I just put my opion across in a reasonable way. But unfortunately it has now got a little nasty. shame. I wont respond.

Secondly, "Dogfax you use software anyways, so you do have an unlimited tune selection", if only I were into illegally copying music I would have. Unfortunately I have a few morals about me and pay for all my music..Sad I know, but that the way it is. So yes I could find loads of cool tracks, but my point was I would have to go and buy them individually. That wasnt too bigger problem, I was just saying I prefered an open theme.

Looks like Ive upset you JM.. Sorry for that..My intention was only to put my points across. Sorry you took it otherwise.
