    Default The Island of Misfit Seasonistas

    Should there be a place for posts that fall outside of the rules for a particular season? Multitrack haven? Limitless posts?

    Well, the above was the question I asked when I started this place and posted the first song, which I wrote for the occasion of not wanting to be limited to the caprices of a particular season but not wanting to be dickish to our lovely hosts. Now, I guess the Island has become part of the Seasonistas' way of doing business. Thanks for being part of it.

    Now, our brother RedPaul101 has started a playlist of the Island of Misfit Seasonistas which is already up to a volume 2. He reasons, rightly, that we should have an unlisted playlist (you need the link, no one will stumble upon our little thing) to listen to without repeats and so on. So, here thanks to Paul is

    The Misfit Playlist Vol. 1 roughly through the end of November 2013
    and
    Misfit Playlist Vol. 2 the road goes ever on...
    Thanks everyone who has posted or watched here and especial thanks to Paul for being our historian.
    Party on.

    Misfit Playlist Vol. 3 Thanks AGAIN to new volunteer BigDaddyUker/BigRockPapa for picking up the ball and running with the Playlist idea begun by RedPaul! You guys are both awesome. This dates to early October 2014

    Misfit Playlist Vol. 4 Beginning with Jan 2015, thanks Big Daddy Uker!

    I have an idea that, at sometime inthe future folks will come to these playlists and let them roll through to see what was REALLY on our minds while we were thinking about the assignments we got from our awesome hosts each week.

    Sometimes I'm a bad Seasonista. I get wrapped up in a season and post more than the maximum number of posts. It's not that I don't respect the hosts; I do. It's just that I am too enthusiastic about a season and I suppose I tend to "stand in the doorway and block up the halls". I'm sometimes sad when I see that folks can't do multittacking for a particular season, not that I'm anyone who does that anyway but I really love some of the things that other folks do.

    ANYway...should there be a place like this for a shadow season where folks can post things that aren't bound by the rubrics of the current season but are still part of that information that wants to be free?

    If not, I respect that, too. I don't really want to provide a solution without a problem.

    xoxo,

    A note from Ukuleledaddy:
    "First of all, I love your enthusiasm for the Seasons. Secondly, I thought the idea during Ska week to cover the entire The Harder They Come album was a ton of fun. Maybe there could be a Seasons supplement forum where each week/every other week/every month/whatever somebody can choose an album and anyone who wanted to contribute their take of a song from that album could drop it there. The album could be related to the week's theme or just some random great album. The thread for each album could be open for the length of the week or be always open so people could submit their cover whenever the mood strikes. So, there's one idea."

    I think its a pretty good idea. Not many seasonistas will need to use it though but I am one who gets a little too enthusiastic sometimes too. I reckon there would be 4 or 5 seasonistas who would sometimes post should it be done.
    I actually liked the ONE official entry and then the rest were bonus vids.
    I know it can sometimes be hard for the host to keep on top of all the entries so an extra thread where they don't have to come is a good plan imho.
    Your idea your job to start the thread though.

    It's a good idea, Alan, to have a place for general conversation that relates to the Seasons without being about a particular Season.

    Most Seasons accept endless bonuses, but some hosts limit the number to make it easier to manage the week's comments. Seems like those Seasonistas who want to post more than the limit would be glad to find a place to do so. It could be a place to announce a separate thread for Sean's idea of highlighting a particular album (e.g., "Hey, Seasonistas, join me over at __ thread to make covers of every song on Dark Side of the Moon.")

    Don't make a new thread each week: Let it be like the "seasonal anticipation" thread, where it's activated when someone has a thought.
    I think the thread should be very general and not be a "shadow season" that distracts from the active Season or takes away from that host's fun. Maybe let it be an appendix to a Season that follows it after it's closed.

    I suggest one for each season so the theme doesn't get lost. Call it The Other Season 80 (or whatever number).
    I read somewhere that 77% of all the mentally ill live in poverty. Actually, I'm more intrigued by the 23% who are apparently doing quite well for themselves.

    To me, this is an argument for having Bonus Track playlists. Weekly hosts may have to point out that they do not promise to make time to watch/comment on every Bonus Track. But it provides a good place to exhibit tracks from the "overzealous", and videos someone made previously that fit the current theme.
