Thought it was time for a new thread considering we are in a new decade and the other thread is quite long. We are also right at 100, which is unbelievable. I pretty much just kept the same name of the thread too. I also put in a few modifications and it does look a bit better.

Bee OK, Friday, 7 February 2020 01:08 (five months ago) link

BTW in the "Where to find the results thread" if you click on mookieproof links you will find each poll's full results list, where they exist and where he could find them.

Bee OK, Friday, 7 February 2020 01:12 (five months ago) link

had been thinking an Underworld poll would be good but i'm not sure at the moment when i'll have time to do a poll this year

i guess you can put me down for it but if someone else happens to have time before me and wants to run an Underworld poll they're welcome to run it instead

would also love to see that SFA poll happen at some point now that Guerilla is finally on NA spotify?

ufo, Friday, 7 February 2020 01:40 (five months ago) link

I'd run an Underworld poll, we'd do well to make it happen before the next Drift series starts up and produces another 12 hours of tracks and jams to wrestle with

Fantastic. Great move. Well done (sic), Friday, 7 February 2020 02:09 (five months ago) link

lol i can't believe it's been 6 years since i signed up to do that herbie hancock poll

uncrut gems (crüt), Friday, 7 February 2020 02:16 (five months ago) link

I think Tori Amos was the last one of these I voted in, and that feels like five years ago.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 7 February 2020 02:38 (five months ago) link

glad to see this thread! thanks, Bee OK.

i'm gonna take my name off of the Billy Joel poll. i ran the track-by-track listening thread with the vague idea that we COULD roll from that into a poll or something, but in practice that thread had such a great turnout and discussion that i'm not sure we'd really gain much by doing a poll, even if everyone could muster it. the joy of ballot polls is in the discussion more than the ranking, and we had one hell of a discussion there. if someone else wants to run it i'd totally vote, though!

Doctor Casino, Friday, 7 February 2020 02:40 (five months ago) link

Is there a thread like this for all the various movie polls? I know the detritus thread each year has links to all the other ones, but I meant the genre and decade polls.

clemenza, Friday, 7 February 2020 03:24 (five months ago) link

I realize the movie polls don't follow back-to-back like the artist ones do, but it would be nice if there were some place where we could float ideas about movie polls and gauge interest (and let folks know they're going on). There's one I've been thinking about for a while, and it will be some time before I can even entertain the idea, but I wouldn't currently know how I would even go about seeing if people would be into it.

Maria Edgelord (cryptosicko), Friday, 7 February 2020 03:32 (five months ago) link

Great idea--start a thread. Anyone with an idea can test it out there--hopefully limited to whether there's interest or not, saving the this-belongs-no-it-doesn't arguments for the actual poll. I think a cumulative results thread would be useful too; some of those movie threads, like the comedy and horror, are really hard to load when you want to check something.

clemenza, Friday, 7 February 2020 03:40 (five months ago) link

Pitch your ideas for possible film polls here

Maria Edgelord (cryptosicko), Friday, 7 February 2020 03:46 (five months ago) link

"New Rose" shuffled up on my phone today and after I was through shouting along I thought a punk rock tracks poll would be fun. Limit it to the period 1974 (Ramones formation) to 1984 (Zen Arcade/Let It Be/Double Nickels).

Miami weisse (WmC), Friday, 7 February 2020 04:10 (five months ago) link

Would definitely participate in classic punk poll.

Maria Edgelord (cryptosicko), Friday, 7 February 2020 04:14 (five months ago) link

Can't wait for the "is this punk or is this new wave?" arguing.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 7 February 2020 04:14 (five months ago) link

yes lol

Dan S, Friday, 7 February 2020 04:16 (five months ago) link

We definitely need an Underworld poll

groovypanda, Friday, 7 February 2020 07:57 (five months ago) link

one thing with the underworld poll though would be figuring out where to draw the line with remixes etc., like "dark train" should probably be counted as a separate track to "dark & long" but does that work for all of them, and how do you handle something like "rez/cowgirl"?

ufo, Friday, 7 February 2020 08:05 (five months ago) link

if it were me, I'd exclude outside remixes, and combine votes for different versions / recordings / mixes / arrangements, but note votes for specific versions in the results. and probably make an eligibility chart so folks don't split votes from themselves.

Rez and Cowgirl I'd be inclined to list separately since they were such distinct recordings, made over a year apart, but roll together in results if voters demand.

Fantastic. Great move. Well done (sic), Friday, 7 February 2020 08:33 (five months ago) link

i mean the "rez/cowgirl" mashup that's been a live staple and was on everything, everything. obviously you list "rez" and "cowgirl" separately but then do you allow votes for "rez/cowgirl" as a separate entity or not or combine the votes in some way?

i agree about excluding outside remixes and combining votes for the cases that are more directly alternate versions/recordings/mixes/arrangements of the same track, the edge case is the remixes they did themselves that are basically entirely separate works to the original (most prominently "dark train" but i think there's a few others out there too)

ufo, Friday, 7 February 2020 09:08 (five months ago) link

yeah there are five or so fully different Dark & Long "versions" that are sometimes listed as discrete songs / sometimes versions, and most of the dubno singles, plus Pearl's Girl and Born Slippy, have the same casual approach to taxonomy. The Born Slippys are as different as Dark Train from Dark & Long, while the Dirty x-s generally sound like separate recordings of the same song, and so do some of the other Darks. And some of the versions even have different mixes!

The band labelled them all as Song (Version) on the super-deluxe reissues, which is probably a tip worth taking.

C21st Underworld instead seemed to do all the rethinking and reworking off-record, playing some things live for years but waiting until they decided on a definitive version to release one (eg You Do Scribble). Drift finally went back to that early-'90s direction, what with the Necks and no-Necks Appleshines, remixing and re-arranging and re-editing things between single and EP and album, the different Soniamodes and Brilliants...

seeing how the voters prefer to think of Rez and Cowgirl is part of the fun!

Fantastic. Great move. Well done (sic), Friday, 7 February 2020 09:56 (five months ago) link

i think one of the other dark & long "remixes" is actually a remix of one of the other dubnobass tracks even

nashwan, Friday, 7 February 2020 10:40 (five months ago) link

I'd still like to do a jungle/dnb poll, as listed above. Not sure if there's enough interest in it though.

Le Bateau Ivre, Friday, 7 February 2020 10:50 (five months ago) link

I'd follow it, definitely, but I probs wouldn't be able to contribute a whole bunch

doorstep jetski (dog latin), Friday, 7 February 2020 10:53 (five months ago) link

Wuhan!! Got You All in Check (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Friday, 7 February 2020 10:54 (five months ago) link

I feel like there was one a few years back. Maybe that was 90s Dance in general. Definitely one I'm more likely to participate in or even help run.

my lineball instinct was to separate them like Rez and Cowgirl, but they really are exactly the same piece in different arrangements (and also reminiscent of when they'd do a Soft Mix and a Hard Mix on work-for-hire remix gigs around this time). I guess the only conclusion is not to do an Underworld poll

Fantastic. Great move. Well done (sic), Friday, 7 February 2020 19:45 (five months ago) link

Just checked: counting the album and 7" version, I have 1 hour 55 minutes and 16 seconds of Dark whatevers. Let's just make them the ballot poll.

staggerlee hasn't posted since 2014. If no one objects (or if they just changed usernames), I'd like to step up for the Newpies poll.

Also: I was thinking about doing the Hendrix poll this September, in recognition of the 50th (not 51st) anniversary of his passing.

Also, post-rock can/should be its own poll distinct from dream pop/shoegaze.

Charlotte Brontesaurus (Leee), Friday, 7 February 2020 21:12 (five months ago) link

As far as timing is concerned, keep in mind that the 2019 metal poll is still underway, so maybe wait until it's over? Otherwise these all sound like great ideas.

thanks for taking over SFA for me wtev. i got mad that there weren't on Spotify and was not going to run it until that got corrected. i see now that everything is on there but RATW and PP. those other reissues have all their earlier B-sides on-line so that is a huge plus. can't wait for the Super Furry Animals poll!

Nag! Nag! Nag!, Saturday, 8 February 2020 03:36 (five months ago) link

I'm thinking of offering my services to do the graphics for the eventual R.E.M. poll (it's 14th on the upcoming poll list)--that is, if rogermexico doesn't want to do them himself.

But here's the gimmick. I would ask all ILM'ers to send me random pictures in an R.E.M. aesthetic (whatever that is). Inscrutable objects, blurry photos you haven't deleted yet, chalk marks on a truck tire, a link to a drawing of some adzes, an old shopping list with a penguin scrawled on it. Or take a picture to illustrate a specific song--but don't tell me the song. I'll slap these bits together haphazardly, paste a wonky font on top and reap the acclaim.

If I do it, I'll probably have to start working on it now to get it done for the reveal sometime next year.

frogbs, Monday, 10 February 2020 19:10 (five months ago) link

hmmm not sure why it just made a new post but here's my thought - all those 'remixes' should be treated as a distinct track, since they're basically distinct tracks with almost nothing to do with the originals. if you combine votes then you wouldn't be able to put, say, "Dark Train" along with "Thing in a Book", nor "Tin There" with "Pearl's Girl", even though these tracks are very different from each other. as for "Rez/Cowgirl", idk how you'd want to handle it but I'd lean towards just not allowing it

frogbs, Monday, 10 February 2020 19:17 (five months ago) link

i'm thinking about running either the Shoegaze poll or the New Wave poll this summer, which should i do?

Bee OK, Saturday, 15 February 2020 00:54 (five months ago) link

i think shoegaze is a good one to do this year, as it will mark the 10 year anniversary of Moka's tracks poll. i won't redo tracks fully but have an idea for a side poll with those results.

Ten years. Oh my god. I think I suggested back then that we should do another poll, but for albums/EPs instead of tracks - I can't remember if that's what this poll is supposed to be.

the salacious inaudible (Nasty, Brutish & Short), Friday, 28 February 2020 23:29 (four months ago) link

Yes, you can see on the above list that it will be for Albums/EPs this summer hopefully. i will do some sort of side poll with the tracks results that we got from Moka's part.

Bee OK, Friday, 28 February 2020 23:36 (four months ago) link

So, is anyone close to ready for the next one? I'll hopefully have rolled out the Prefab poll by the end of next week.

Let's nudge the thread for a couple of days in case anyone who's been on deck for a while gets prompted: I'm ready to roll on Underworld, but have the 2019 film poll going on ILE right now, so want to stagger them a bit anyway. (Being locked inside for months is probably the best time for folks to try and figure out which of five nine-minute versions of different songs are their favourites, to be sure.)

Heh I think the shoegaze poll was one of my first polls so there’s no images, some of the winners don’t really qualify as shoegaze (not my fault! That’s on voters) and I broke the usual tie system into a weird one, I’m sure there’s plenty of mistakes too.

I'll see about getting this up by this evening.

cool. Really don't know my Hendrix well enough and this will be a good education.

two weeks pass...

Should be wrapping up the Hendrix voting this week. Anyone interested in doing images for the tracks rollout?

i could try to find some images on the web but i have no clue how to integrate them with the poll & track information.

I can do them with the caveat that while I can sling shit together, I am not a good designer.

(Being locked inside for months is probably the best time for folks to try and figure out which of five nine-minute versions of different songs are their favourites, to be sure.)

I'm now more inclined to think that nobody will be able to concentrate hard enough to even tell a 1994 b-side from a 2019 remix, but the results rollout would make for good decision-free listening.

just looking forward to what is next

Bee OK, Saturday, 2 May 2020 02:28 (two months ago) link

How's about that trip hop poll? Though I'd suggest opening it to beyond the Bristol bands.

Judd Apatowsaurus (Leee), Tuesday, 5 May 2020 21:19 (two months ago) link

Bristol & nearby bands keeps a certain elegant purity & focus imo.

anyway UNDERWORLD IS GO!

one-week-in bump

Underworld poll is rolling out at length, top 77 start today: why don't you poll me I feel like flying to... the UNDERWORLD Poll Results thread -- produced by Smith & Hyde for ILM Artist Poll #102

I'd like to bump myself in the mix for a Janet Jackson ballot poll because, really, she deserves her own apart from her family.

Dirty Epic H. (Eric H.), Thursday, 11 June 2020 18:26 (one month ago) link

Would participate.

A White, White Gay (cryptosicko), Thursday, 11 June 2020 18:47 (one month ago) link

would love that

is someone still planning to run a 2010s poll sometime in the next few months?

ufo, Thursday, 11 June 2020 18:52 (one month ago) link

Not sure what the protocol is for waiting one's turn, but I'd be happy to jump in with Janet whenever soonest available.

Dirty Epic H. (Eric H.), Thursday, 11 June 2020 19:08 (one month ago) link

I would definitely be up for a Janet poll and the 2010s one.

kitchen person, Friday, 12 June 2020 14:35 (one month ago) link

Oh god, yes please Janet poll asap

bunny slopes, Friday, 12 June 2020 19:38 (one month ago) link

With Underworld complete, I'm happy opening up a Janet poll if the people demand it.

Juanita was robbed (Eric H.), Tuesday, 23 June 2020 13:39 (three weeks ago) link

I'm there for a Janet poll, but isn't the 2010s hip hop poll happening now?

A White, White Gay (cryptosicko), Tuesday, 23 June 2020 16:36 (three weeks ago) link

It is, but I figured there had been concurrent single-artist and broader-topic polls in the past. But I can certainly wait, also.

Juanita was robbed (Eric H.), Tuesday, 23 June 2020 17:01 (three weeks ago) link

That's true. Not like any of us have a whole lot else going on right now, I guess.

A White, White Gay (cryptosicko), Tuesday, 23 June 2020 19:24 (three weeks ago) link

I actually think a Janet poll is a great idea, this artist poll would finish in plenty of time. The other poll is only in the nominations period.
