The next SSBB challenge (by popular demand, although it was going to be this anyway *g*): create a fan soundtrack for a story from one of the past SSBB issues, and post it here in bangbangwhimper
. Another alternative is to soundtrack an entire issue of SSBB (one track per story). You can make more than one FST, and there's no signup or permission - writers can opt out by commenting to this post.
Examples of fan soundtracks can be found at fst
, natch. There are no hard-and-fast rules. Purists like to stick to classic mixtape etiquette, such as not reusing the same artist twice, or making the running time conform to a physical format (CD, cassette, vinyl 12"), but all that seems mildly antiquated in the era of streaming shared playlists. XD; You can upload the files to your own server, or to one of the usual suspects like Mediafire or Rapidshare. Alternately, create a streaming mixtape at a site like 8tracks
. The only requirement is that listeners not be obliged to pay or create an account in order to hear the songs.
The challenge will run until the end of January.
