Ok, time for a new show here on SceneSat. This will be a recurring show, but we still haven't decided on how often it will happen. Probably quarterly or bi-monthly, but that is actually up to you, since this is the show where we present the tracks you have voted as the best ones for a certain period of time. Do tune in and enjoy, but make sure to vote as much as possible to make this an interesting show!

Sputnik sees that PsychNerD couldn't agree more with Byproduct...

Really great show, my friend! :) I enjoyed it very much! Almost all of my favourites were on the list, so I will definitely keep voting! Perhaps there will be a #30 instead of #25?? :)

I guess I'm dismayed a bit, as out of the list of the top, only 2 (and maybe a half... Shades MIGHT sort of count; Elwood's tune MIGHT sort of count...) were demoscene tunes. And one was a remix.

I fully understand we're bringing other things into the demoscene mix, and we're not a 100% only demoscene, 100% only oldschool, 100% only tracked, or similar genre-forcing radio. I _like_ that we have various mixes of things. Heck we even have stuff I detest on the rotational. This is good. BUT. I would like to see us, ya know, have a bit more demoscene involvement. The demoscene makes a HECK of a lot of music, and a good portion of it is quality, so it's a bit ... dismaying not to see that reflected in our list.

I also figure this is partially my fault for not doing more shows, so obviously I need to do more shows.

Perhaps we need to do something to 'weight' some songs - after all, folks familiarity with c64 game tunes or snes game tunes may cause a particular tune to be given more 'props' than a straightforward composition. Maybe that would make an interesting comparison, but not such a great thing for 'every' show.

Perhaps we should just leave it as is and do ANOTHER show that focuses on the top 5 demoscene tunes, but ... you watch, if that happens, I'll complain because it's always the same top tunes and there isn't enough variety.

I guess what I'm really saying is I dislike popularity, as it infringes on people's ability to experience innovation.

( Yet I like statistics (: )

I _am_ happy that my favorite Elwood track, which normally people tell me is the one they like the LEAST, made the top 25. And, well, I do know that one track will be featured in the upcoming Mindcandy 3 demo DVD. Actually, I think 2 of them are on it. So I guess you know WHICH TWO huh.

Ah well. I need to work on getting a show ready, perhaps for next week. Yes let's just see if I can't get one organized and set up for next week. (Organized means a bit more preparation on my part.)

The vote counting system made it interesting, I was expecting to see other tunes in the top but I'm definitely not complaining. Great show, hoping to get more of these in the future.
