Hello one, hello all!

I've been a part of BotB for a few months now, and I feel the time is right to infuse my own random interests into our community — namely, a YouTube Power Hour featuring tracks from our very own.

For the unfamiliar, the Power Hour is a (usually) college drinking game that, as far as I can tell, is more prevalent in places like the Rust Belt. The game entails you taking a shot of beer every minute for an entire hour, typically leading to 5 or 6 beers finished in that time before the night ahead of you. (Brilliant, I know.) The game is punctuated with songs that are changed every minute: at one time, manually on the mp3 player or iPod of choice, but now in a number of permutations found all over the internet.

At 36, the drinks move much more slowly, but the intrigue in an hour of music, highlighting in its way tracks you may have never otherwise stumbled upon, remains strong, and so I propose here and now a Power Hour of strictly BotB submissions, especially given that the OHB format means a lot of them won't even make it a full minute (which is fine).

I'm happy to organize and make the video — all I need is folks' permission and a list of what songs to include (again, great part is, I can just download the mp3 files). *If* you'd like to have your song as a part of the video, please list 1 or 2 of your BotB-submitted tracks at the link below (including, if preferred, a one-minute section of the song you want to have chosen), and I'll get things going!

Such playlists typically have a theme and this one is...

SONGS TO GET PUMPED UP TO

What better way to embrace the Power Hour mentality? My apologies for the lengthy post, but hope you're willing to participate!

I know that both have plenty of killer options, but I do only want to take tracks people choose to submit! Just don't feel right using songs for my own interests without expressed approval.

(you're aware the botb license does give you the permission technically tho?)

Absolutely! I just feel obliged to verify if at all possible, though. Are there any tracks you'd prefer I use or should I pick from your library, so to speak?

(If you know which ones, you can add them to the Google sheet!)

I'm bad at making decisions like that x)
just choose whatever you like. sorting my entries by major and score is probably the best way to go

I've added two songs I think would fit. I recommend you switch to editing via suggestions, though! I don't want to see this sheet vandalized by anybody...

want to express my appreciation for everyone's support so far! i've got a short intro + template video that, if anybody is up for it, i'd love some feedback on, especially what should play during the songs themselves, be it a visualizer, some background gifs, character gifs, this stereo player pixel art I had made — all sorts of options.

beyond that, keep adding your songs! we're 1/3 of the way there, so let's keep things moving.

the intro + template video can be viewed here
. Thanks again!

Woah. I just became of drinking age, though I don't think I'd like to drink just yet. I'll still contribute my best two to the list though!

Not drinking is probably the best choice you can make!

That said, 1) thanks for adding your tracks and 2) if you do choose to indulge, well, you'll at least have some community-curated music to accompany you!

HEEEEEEY OH,

We're over halfway there, so keep adding your tracks! Figured it was worth bumping as new folks join our online song game. Over the summer, I'll have a lot more downtime and it'll be the perfect chance to finish this up, so let's get to 60.

A few posts up is a link for a rudimentary template idea or two I have if you're curious. Top post lists full details. Thank you!

i still dont understand exactly. what does this involve a video for? thought it was a game, so the ending aim confuses me. are we recommending ours or other botbrs songs? why are we drinking? i understand the theme though. thats ok

It is a game! Generally though it's played among friends and while you chat and do whatever, the video is guidance when to take another drink as it provides the music to keep you going.

You *could* just make a playlist and keep of every minute passed as the songs play in full, but I kinda like the variety you get bouncing between songs.

late to the party but this is a very fun idea! added two of my tracks to the sheet (:

edit:
also I think it would be very fun to have a synclisten global listening/drinking(optional) party when the video is done!!

For sure! I hope to make that the plan. We're inching closer to 60 tracks with every addition, so new folks keep adding!

I went ahead and added some of my tracks, though I'll admit I don't quite know what "drinking music" i supposed to sound like..

Any music is drinking music if you're sad enough!

Moreover, this is collaborative fun so there's no wrong answers. Appreciate your sharing your tracks!
