Flush Walrus 2000
FTF's 2000th Post Special
What's a walrus?
Well little Timmy, a walrus is a song submission competition tradition!
I provide you with a list of categories, some guidelines and a couple examples for you to get your bearings. YOUR job is to submit ONE song for EACH category.
I judge the songs submitted based on how much I like them and then I rank the submissions against each other.
This is all about me laying out my tastes and you trying to introduce me to some new music that you think I would like.
I'll probably be doing live reveals for each category over Discord!
Bit about my tastes:
I listen to a lot of hip-hop, rap and trap. I listen to some pop, rock, electro and metal. I avoid most country, sad slow songs and cheesy romantic stuff.
-Submit one song per category and submit to every single category.
-Submissions are via PM only. Send me a pm over the forums here with something along the lines of "Walrus Submission 2000" in the message subject.
-For your submission, I'll be able to listen to it once its on Youtube, Spotify or Soundcloud. I'd prefer it to be compiled in a uniform playlist but I don't mind a list of links either. Just make sure it's an official link so I don't have to deal with your submission potentially being hit with a copyright strike before I can listen to it.
-You'll only be recorded as a participant in this Walrus once I get a complete submission from you. You can express interest in participating in this thread and that'll mean I'll pester you to submit if you haven't by the deadline.
-The deadline to submit is two weeks as of this post opening. That's the 19th of October.
-I'd also advise against submitting covers, chances are I just straight up won't like them.
-I figured it's only fair to give you some artists you should most definitely avoid:
Don't submit because I've listened to their entire discography
Maybe avoid because I know most of their discography
Tyler The Creator
Avoid because I hate them as an artist and don't want to waste my time listening to them
Machine Gun Kelly
-Points will be awarded out of 10. This will be a combination score of how well I think it fits the category and how much I enjoy it, but not necessarily a 5/5 split between the two.
-There's a potential deduction in place for songs that I'm too familiar with. The point of the Walrus is for me to be introduced to new music so it wouldn't be in your best interest to submit extremely popular songs.
-There's a potential bonus in place if you submit a song and I end up being really glad that you introduced me to it.
-At the end I remove your lowest category score and add up your 7 highest scores for your final score. Highest final score wins bragging rights. Last winner was stronk independent hamster
Categories and Example Tracks:
1) PG Music
We're starting off simple! I'm a proud single dad of 2 and I need music that me and my kids can listen to together. Make sure your submission to this category is family friendly and won't turn my babies into delinquents!
Kero Kero Bonito - Big City
Breakbot- Baby I'm Yours
2) 2000-2010 only
I was born in '99 so I spent a lot of time listening to stuff from this era over the radio. I need you to send me back in time! For this category you won't necessarily be hit as hard for sending songs that I'm too familiar with.
Taio Cruz - Dynamite
Far East Movement - Like a G6
3) Murder Music
Ain't a thing in this world I love more than a cold cut about killing people. It's more of a mindset thing though, I don't actually want to kill people. Please don't sue me.
Trap beats, smooth flows, head banging hooks, all of the above. Make sure your submission gets me looking out of the corner of my eyes with vicious intent.
21 Savage, Offset & Metro Boomin - Ghostface Killers Ft Travis Scott
BOOGIE - BROCKHAMPTON
4) Guilty Pleasures
Send me a terrible song. No, I mean a song that you feel bad for enjoying. I need your guilty pleasure "I hate that I like this" song. I want to feel ashamed if people ever saw this in my listening history. I need a song that I can't help but enjoy even though I know I very well shouldn't.
Lil Pump - Gucci Gang
Sheck Wes- Mo Bamba
5) Woke Music
Send me some super deep abstract nonsense that I need a philosophy degree to truly enjoy. Some spiritual lyrical miracle individual type of stuff. At the very least your submission needs to make me think a little bit. Stupid hipster stuff is very welcome.
Hozier - Take Me To Church
Earl Sweatshirt - Whoa
6) Weeb trash only
I brought this category back because it was a hit last time. Send me your favourite weeb fuel. Reminder to VigilanteVigoroth to not sub Imagine Dragons to this category again. Anime ops/eds/soundtracks, kpop and jpop are all very welcome!
TWICE - LIKEY
deadman 死人 - Omae Wa Mou
7) Bedtime Songs
Alright it's getting hot and steamy! Send me a song for when you're performing consensual, adult-oriented, recreational, romantic activities with a person that you have sexual interest in.
Because bedtime means something else for the people who don't have their minds in the gutter, send me a soothing song that puts you in the mood to get a clean 8-9 hours of rest. I'll be accepting submissions of either nature for this category!
SZA - The Weekend
Daft Punk - Something About Us
8) Open Category
ANYTHING GOES! Send me anything you love and you think I'll love too! No restrictions here, just what you think has the best shot of earning points.
Completed Submissions (Aiming for at least 8):
