that is annoying and grr! actually it bothers me because even if I liked your FST, chances of me wanting to download and then sort out all the songs I already have (based on that Utena FST's later-posted-tracklist: about 60%) are low. Although I understand the idea is to get people to download and listen based on the character/fandom and not the artist/song (i.e. to use this comm for its intended purpose and not to get the free muziks). It's a kind of admirable idea, but I just don't think it works out well, and I wish people wouldn't do it. Plus, this way I have a chance of having to accidentally listen to joanna newsom or something, and that would probably kill me.
while we're bitching about the comm being appropriately used:
jokersama and I are sort of tired of FST being used for things it's not for. Like themed mixes based on caffiene, nerds, late night driving, etc. Some of these have been good! The one based on "getaways" a year or two ago was brilliant and I loved it! But it's not an FST! Who the hell is a fan of "when you feel melancholy" or "insomnia"?! I can barely give you FSTs based on cities or specific nouns (I think we're all general fans of caffiene, amirite??) but "things that annoy you" and "random verbs" are SOOOOO not fandoms. Someone needs to make a ThemeMix comm or something and send all these people there. Some of the mixes are really great, which is probably why nobody has complained yet, but this is not the community for them. Are we alone in feeling this way? T_T (A lot of these are based on the requests month, also, which is annoying because many people who requested apparently had no idea what this comm is for and probably just joined because it's freemusicstravaganza. Which I guess is fine but geez.)
...Oh and please don't call me hypocrite too loudly if I post my George W Bush FST left over from Villians month. XD XD XD XD XD LOOK, AMERICA CAN BE MY FANDOM, RIGHT?!?!?!?!?!?! XD Srsly though, I'd rather if the rules are clarified, even if that means I'm not able to post it. :P That is what I have my OWN MOTHERFUCKING LJ FOR.
And plz vote for my FSTs! I'm a nice person!!!! :D :D :D
