I don't think I'm in this one. I've got a big project in the pipe that will use up everything I've got. It could be a theme challenge (loosely), but it would be a hell of a commitment for everyone who took part.

So the challenge starts Sunday evening, I wanted to float the two directions by the challengers first.

1) Pick one theme for everyone
2) Distribute each theme randomly

With such a diverse and interesting list of themes, I am leaning towards #2 but I can understand if a bunch of people just want to bash out a Peak Hours mix.

Any last thoughts?

Well, I already stated that bashing out a peak hours set would be fun, but now I'm kinda leaning for option 2. Just give me whatever.

IMO your challenge, your rules. i would say one theme for all. or maybe for added challenge combine two themes such as a peak time set for a summer party outdoors

I would highly recommend choosing one theme, not distributing them randomly. A lot of the fun of the theme challenge is seeing how different individuals, that one knows, interpret a given theme differently, in my opinion.

Sand Leaper, I was myself thinking of the US' Southern States when suggesting 'Deep South', but I wished to leave it open to each individual to interpret those two words as they would - perhaps to some it would suggest the deepest jungles of the Dark Continent! Always fun to leave some ambiguity in these things...

Okay, I'm aware that I'm just flip-flopping now, but I just noticed that a horror theme was suggested. That would be awesome.

Okay I think I have a good idea how to do this thing now.

Lews, are you in man? I can extend to the end of October.

I tried a bunch of ways to make a single selection where everybody could interpret a theme differently, and I realized that I was just robbing myself and others of a host of other great ideas. The range of subtle to vast differences in interpretation is indeed the best part of a theme challenge, but I simply couldn't select just one. So I assigned one to everyone. I cut "Autumn" from the selection choices because I couldn't particularly identify a distinguished feature of music that I would associate with Fall.

I hope everyone is happy with their assignments. Since the rules are basically up to me, I have to make tough decisions. So I didn't leave it up to RNG this time; I specifically selected the themes for each challenger.

Good luck, have fun, and happy mixing!

(P.S. Lews if you still want in, you can take Autumn or a theme of my choice)

Deep South? Hmm, that's gonna be pretty tough... Only thing that immediately comes to mind is this:



I'll have to get creative!

Not much of a challenge, but alright. The last two I did were quite conceptual and multifaceted, so I guess making something very straightforward for a change wouldn't hurt. I have two ideas of where to go with this, so I just need to choose one of them. The weather has to get a bit worse before I start trawling stores online, though.
