  1. I've been thinking about it...and I don't know. It's really hard to stay motivated when it seems like nobody cares about the project except those who are on it. Well, the ones who are actually 'here', anyway. I can't think of anything we can do to save the project. Sure, we could move back to community, but we've already PMed so many mixers, why would they decide to just come on board? I had this whole big post planned out, but is it even worth typing out? Only a few people will read it and moaning about how mixers keep abandoning us isn't going to help us. And how we've been around for more than a year and barely have anything done... I guess I'm being all doomy and gloomy, but I honestly don't see us finishing anymore.
  2. Well, to be fair, Friday isn't over yet. But...we do need to do something different, or else we'll be buried under the ever increasing amount of new projects that seem to start so often. If we don't discuss our options the project will continue to flounder, as mixers get bored with us and wander off to join "The Pimp Daddy Link" project or whatever else is new this week. Some sort of consensus needs to be reached as to what we can do to get back on track. I'll wait until tomorrow to start reviewing WIPs so, hopefully, more people will get a chance to get something in. Or at least drop by and leave a note. Thank you to all who have already taken the time to do this.
  3. Just a friendly reminder that Friday the 7th is the due date for WIPs, so let's put those finishing touches on them over the next few days. And then we can, like, go for beer or something.
  4. Oh, you were looking at the old forums. Nobody uses those anymore so a bunch of spambots hang out there now. We need to archive the helpful posts and delete that place now that we have a better forum. (so much to do...) Anyway, if you want to join the project you'll need to show us what you can do. Do you have a demo track we can listen to? If you do you can PM it to Pi/Kanjika or myself and we'll evaluate it. Or you can post in it the thread, if that's easier.
  5. Thanks, I'll take a listen and try and get something written up asap. EDIT: Sorry, everything over here is a bit hectic right now, so I haven't gotten to it yet. I'll have it done up by tonight, promise. Sorry!
  6. I have no idea how the system works, but if the problem is the same name being repeated, could each mixer's name be, "Anonymous PRC Contestant 1", "Anonymous PRC Contestant 2", etc.? The IP thing shouldn't be a problem since people are allowed to submit more than one mix, if I remember correctly. No one has done that using Tha Sauce Compo though.
  7. So, if I use trackers to write my music, I'm not a "computer composer, music engineer, or synthesist"? Wow, it makes so much sense now! I guess I'll delete all these programs and stop working on my "songs"!
  8. Happy birthdays! I think I have a few ideas for this, so I'll try and put up a mix.
  9. I hadn't voted before using the new system, so hopefully I did it right. I had no idea what to say in comments. I've never been good at those.
  10. Looks like I'm out. Been listening all week, and nothing has jumped out at me. So much for my big comeback.
  11. I slapped down a new WIP. You know where.
  12. Well, there goes my choice of source tune should I ever win. ...speaking of which, I need to get back in on this. I completely forgot about PRC in the hectic weeks gone by.
  13. The only Star Trek related programming I'll watch is that one show with the two Rikers where they both go at it. That one was totally awesome. Yes, the main problem I'm having right now is motivation too. I'm sort of in the opposite situation though. I work from 9-6, and factoring in commutes and meals I sit down in front of my computer to write by seven. But after a long day at work, where I ALSO stare at a computer, I'm just toasted mentally. I just pluck around at my keyboard, wondering how a happy hardcore remix of American Patrol would sound. The people who wrote the very songs we're mixing didn't have the liberty to stop just because they felt like it. We're lucky to say that we do have this luxury, but are we taking too much advantage of it? I am. I've been struggling with this track for a while now, and need to pull it together. And honestly, finishing up what we're doing is in everyone's best interests. I mean, who doesn't want to be done? Seeing some new activity is good -but getting it back up to old levels, where people are constantly updating their tracks and critiquing others would be really wonderful to see. Coincidentally, happy one year aniversary everyone!
