    Back, back way back in the years of yore, we used to listen to albums together and discuss it in IRC in real time, something that was immensely entertaining, but obviously has fallen off in recent years.

    Would anybody be up for this? Ignore logistics, timezones, everything else aside from whether you might be interested--we'll start with the most basic of basics first, so making sure anyone even cares is a good first step. It doesn't have to be in IRC: Skype, other chat services are fine. Doesn't really matter.

    So, the breakdown is:

    -Album is picked, time set

    -Everyone listens to the album at the same time

    -Discussion during the listening in chat; thread to discuss music further, decide on next album

    -rinse, repeat

    Interested?

    Even if it's just mods/old MD regulars, I don't care. These were fun.

    The more normies we get, the more crazy the album has to be. These are the rules.

    Interested, but I don't know cause the frequent goers in this section are too fucking hip to even acknowledge occasional posters, and have that elitist attitude of ignoring new people who tries to share a piece of their mind in the music thread. Yeah, just like real life hipsters.

    But, seriously, Owl, I don't know where you're getting that, unless you just stepped out of time portal from 2007, in which case you may be right, but those people no longer post.

    We'd be happy to have you on board, though I can't imagine being passive aggressive about it will help. The more, the merrier, especially people who do not frequent the section.

    I didn't know my posting was that impressive or unexpected :p

    Would we be trying to set up the IRC again, for the listening parties?

    Also, I have a fairly open schedule (being a perpetually unemployed, still-in-college-after-six-years manchild) so other than Tuesdays and Thursdays, when I actually do have class all day, I'm available for the listening.

    I'm in if it happens like before the 28th. After that I'll be stuck at my grandparents for 2 weeks waiting for my flight and doing the 'bye family, yes I'll miss you too' dance and grandma does not like me being on the intrawebs all night or all day. (Goddammit Jove next time you're the one emigrating.)

    That's enough people, I'd wager.

    The real questions are:

    IRC or Skype (for ease of use, I'd probably bet on Skype)

    Which album?

    You mean so secret that no one has been there in years except Simp the sleeping dragon guarding the fortress? Or whoever it was that was always there but never actually 'there'.

    I'll bet it's still there because simpatiK is still there, like a self aware ad bot.

    Haha yeah probably. I remember going in there so often back then and finding no one except simp. I'd leave a 'Hi' and come back days later to find a 'Hi' back from him or some other passerby.

    Skype's just easier to use. I never really took to IRC because no one I regularly spoke to used it and I hated hanging out in random channels for days waiting for anything interesting to happen. Too old now to engage in random internet balderdash with people I don't know and past the point where greentext slapping each other with trouts is in any way a sensible manner to spend the day.
