Bonjour! Welcome to the Playlist Inspiration Competition!

Well, this is a fairly simple competition. I've compiled a "playlist" of songs for the inspiration, and it is your task to choose one or several of the songs to draw inspiration from! Create a photo manipulation, write a poem or some prose, take a photo, or create art! All that I ask is that you use your OWN artistic abilities, and if you do create a photo manipulation, to give credit where credit is due. List what song(s) you drew inspiration from with your entry. There will be a public poll for each category, and I will also pick a personal favorite for each. (: I'll also probably create a nifty badge or something. So go out! Create! andddd... Have fun!

The Playlist:

Username (or number or email):


2011-01-18 [Chimes]: I like this.

2011-01-18 [Akayume]: Thank you. (: I'm still adding songs to the playlist, so if you're interested in entering I'll take song requests to add since this is the first contest I've done in a while and I'm pretty lax. ^-^

2011-01-18 [Chimes]: How long are you planning for this to be open for? :) So I can work around my uni schedule.

2011-01-18 [Akayume]: As long as people need. (: I will see how interested people are/how many, and then I'll set a date that's comfortable for everyone.

2011-01-18 [Chimes]: Excellent :D

2011-01-18 [Akayume]: Squee! (: And I'm also thinking of letting people enter as many categories they want, not sure on a limit of entries per category, however...

2011-01-18 [Chimes]: Typo 'I'v'

2011-01-18 [Akayume]: .__.'' where?

2011-01-18 [Chimes]: First word of the second sentence.

2011-01-18 [Akayume]: Oh! I'm sorry. DX <-is tired

I didn't understand you for some reason. .___.' But thank youuu~

2011-01-18 [Chimes]: It's okay :P <3

2011-01-18 [Akayume]: And all of my picks for the playlist are up, so if anyone else stumbles by.. whatcha see is whatcha git. :P So got out! I command thee to create! :O

2011-01-18 [sweet.tx.tea]: Good idea! <3

2011-01-18 [Captain Rachel Black]: I was actually thinking of doing something like this! Bust as usual you did it better than I would have XD

2011-01-18 [Aeolynn]: you can make a playlist on youtube of the total songs instead of listing them one by one


2011-01-18 [Akayume]: This is a good point, but I wouldn't want ya'll to see my youtube channel with my embarrassing fashion videos. X3 I might do that. Thanks for the tip Aeo. (: 

2011-01-18 [Akayume]: And I'm sorry Cap'n! Is not better. :3 But now you must enter. :O

2011-01-18 [Captain Rachel Black]: I is caught!

2011-01-18 [Akayume]: *ebil cackling*

2011-01-19 [Kuramasgirl]: This sounds really interesting. :D If I can fit it into my schedule, I'd love to participate.

2011-01-19 [Akayume]: Squee! :3

2011-03-18 [Akayume]: Peeeeeopleeeee... We need more interest. :(

2011-03-18 [Chimes]: I completely forgot about this. o.o Stress, I blame it.

2011-03-18 [Akayume]: :P At least I reminded you.

2011-03-18 [Chimes]: Well, I can't do anything about it until... April :P

2011-03-18 [Kuramasgirl]: Considering my teachers have told me that we will be stepping up the pace when I get back from Spring Break, I don't know when I'll have the chance to make an entry for this. e__e; But I will definitely try!

2011-03-18 [Akayume]: Tell more people! :P :P

I know everyone's busy. So long as no one forgot. XP

2011-04-19 [Akayume]: One entry!

2011-04-19 [Marlene'Jacques]: is hard to find inspiration :(

2011-04-19 [sweet.tx.tea]: I will work on my entry, tonight! <3

2011-04-19 [Akayume]: Huzzah!

2011-04-19 [Akayume]: @Sera: Oh no! :(

2011-04-20 [Marlene'Jacques]: I know :( 'tis is horrid as so wanted to enter as well...

2011-04-20 [Akayume]: Well, there is no deadline. (: So no worries.

I'll set one once we have more entries. I'm hoping to do another round as well.

2011-04-20 [Marlene'Jacques]: well if i still don't come up with anything this round i'll have another think about the next round

2011-04-20 [Akayume]: Cool. :D

2011-04-25 [iippo]: Hey, this is cool. *puts on thinking hat*

2011-04-25 [Akayume]: :D Huzzah! And thank you. (:

2011-04-26 [sweet.tx.tea]: Akay, your perfect.

2011-04-26 [Akayume]: Awww. :D thank chu!

2011-04-26 [sweet.tx.tea]: "Jar of Hearts" for the win. Do we need model release forms?

2011-04-26 [Akayume]: Nuuu. (: I'm not gonna be that complicated.

2011-04-26 [Mortified Penguin]: Excellent. Litigation will be so sweet.

2011-04-26 [Akayume]: Yeah, but there isn't anything profitable to be gained. What could you sue for, really? Besides, most photographers have some sort of agreement with their models already stating where and when the photos can be used for.

Not only that, but I know that most of sheep's models are her friends. Don't think there's much to worry about there.

2011-04-26 [Akayume]: And inside of attempting wittiness, why don't you enter something mort? (;

2011-04-26 [Akayume]: Besides, I'd rather have some sort of trust in people these days than to have no trust at all. :D

2011-04-26 [Triola]: This is spooky! My sister just played the Jar of Hearts song to me the other day and I though "ooooh, jar of hearts, that would make a cool picture!"

2011-04-26 [sweet.tx.tea]: @ Mort: MWAHAHA. Good luck. I already have model contracts with them all. However, I was going to create specific ones for this contest if necessary.

@ Akay: xD We have an amazing idea planned. Are we allowed to put photos next to eachother, almost like a roll of film?

2011-04-27 [Akayume]: :3 I am getting inside yo braaaaaain Triola. :P

Sure! :D :D :D I'm otay with that. Not a problemo. I'm pretty chill so far with entries. XP I just want people to enter dangit!

2011-04-27 [sweet.tx.tea]: ASDFGHJKL:" SO excited. Legit. Sarah and I have been planning since Monday. GOING TO BUY HAIR DYE!

2011-04-27 [Akayume]: Hair dye? :O :O Giiiiirl, you are gettin' serious. :3

2011-04-27 [sweet.tx.tea]: Legit. Black. If I can find temporary black that I can cover my whole head with. I have such thick hair...

Dude. 4 models in this series.

2011-04-27 [Chimes]: Unrelated but you've just reminded me that I need to re-dye my hair (I have the dye, I just forgot). Thank you. :P

2011-04-27 [Akayume]: So excited! :D

I need to re-dye mine as well. :P I have not the dye, however.

2011-04-27 [sweet.tx.tea]: !! I adore your hair color. I wish my hair were not so dry. :/

2011-04-27 [Akayume]: Awww. :( Mine gets dry too! And static-y..>.>

2011-04-27 [sweet.tx.tea]: I have had dry hair since I was a kid. I used to have to wait like six days to wash my hair because it was so darn dry.

Now, I have very thick follicles. I have to get my hair thinned.

2011-04-27 [Akayume]: Oh no. DX I have a friend who thins out her hair. :/ Mine's thick but fine, so I don't have to worry about that.

2011-04-29 [Viking]: This looks interesting. I might get unlazy and try.

2011-04-29 [Akayume]: Whai sank you. (:

You should! I have... one entry. And a few promised ones. :P

2011-04-29 [Viking]: mistaked 'Major Tom' for David Bowie's classic 'Space Oddity'

2011-04-29 [Akayume]: XP oops.

2011-04-29 [Viking]: Yeah, I'm less inspired.

2011-04-29 [Akayume]: Oh noez!

2011-04-29 [iippo]: I did the same thing, Viking.

2011-04-29 [Viking]: I knew I couldn't have been the only one!

2011-04-29 [RemovedAcct]: Space Oddity has always kinda bored me....... >.> I like the one Akay posted better. My mom loves Bowie though.

2011-04-29 [Akayume]: Your mom would. :P

2011-04-29 [Nioniel]: Bowie. <3

2011-05-11 [Roma]: Bowie = Let's Dance. That was my favorite song when I was little.

2011-05-11 [Akayume]: Cuuuute! :3

2011-05-11 [Nioniel]: :D

2011-05-11 [Roma]: I listened to it almost nonstop on my WALKMAN.

2011-05-11 [Chimes]: Akay, I has a photo idea :D Will be doing it soon.

2011-05-11 [Akayume]: Yay! :D I am excited. <3

2011-05-11 [Akayume]: I had a walkman too. :(

2011-05-11 [Viking]: I have a walkman now, except it's an mp3 and stuff player. I actually like it better than the ipod I used to have.

2011-05-11 [Akayume]: My ipod broke. :( I am quite sad.

2011-05-11 [Marlene'Jacques]: i dislike ipods :( i always use a cd walkman

2011-05-11 [Akayume]: I want a new mp3 player since I'm taking a long flight this summer and do not want to be music-less.

2011-05-11 [Viking]: You should be able to find a 16gb walkman for about $100.

2011-05-11 [Roma]: If the software weren't such a pain in the ass, I'd suggest the Zune. Mine has 120GB and I couldn't live without it.

2011-05-11 [Akayume]: My bf had a zune. He liked it. (: I just want something that will work. DX

2011-05-11 [Mortified Penguin]: What?! Kill him. Kill him now.

2011-05-11 [Akayume]: Nuuu. (: I like the idea of a zune better than an ipod because you can't take music files off an ipod and put them on your computer. :( (I totally typed "opid" at first. Lawl. XD)

2011-05-11 [Marlene'Jacques]: what's a zune?? i don't think we have them over here...

2011-05-11 [Roma]:
Microsoft MP3

2011-05-11 [Akayume]: I beat you [Roma]! :3 Har har. (Kidding~)

2011-05-11 [Marlene'Jacques]: lol thank you to both of you :)

2011-05-11 [Akayume]: De rien. :D

2011-05-16 [Linderel]: *materialises in a corner*

2011-05-16 [Chimes]: Skills.

2011-05-17 [Akayume]: Mad. Skills.

2011-06-11 [Akayume]: *poke*

2011-06-12 [Linderel]: I can't watch intarwebs videos on my 'puter. Imma see if I can find these on Spotify.

2011-06-12 [Akayume]: Otay. :O

2011-06-20 [Mystin]: Arms is way better than jar of hearts

2011-06-20 [Chimes]: Jar of hearts is awesome though. :O

2011-06-20 [Mystin]: It's overrated. All these songs are emo.

2011-06-20 [Chimes]: O.o Where d'you get that idea? Abba? Gaga? Emo? Really? O.o

2011-06-20 [Viking]: Boo Boo Baba Dee Dee?

2011-06-20 [Mystin]: I just think the contest would be more fair if we could pick our own songs.

2011-06-20 [Akayume]: How is it unfair? o.o I'm not sure how it's unfair at all.

And ABBA is not emo. :3 Either is "Got Dynamite" by Demi Lovato. Or "She's my Man" by the Scissor Sisters.

And that's the whole point of it being a contest, that there's a challenge. (: If I we ever proceed to the next round, I might do something themed like, "French Artists" or "Music of the 50's" or something like such.

2011-06-20 [Chimes]: It's more challenging to portray songs that you don't know or don't necessarily like, I think. (Speaking of, I really will get round to this soon. Really. XD)
A song that you love will get your creativity flowing easily and you probably instantly have an idea but a song you don't know makes you think about it. :) It will probably bring out the best in your work because of it. :)

2011-06-20 [Akayume]: Thanks Chimes. (: That's exactly what I was thinking (which is was the music is so different, and not all the same genre).

*pokes* YES. DO IT. :D :D So far Trin and the boy are the only ones who've entered. :(

2011-06-21 [Mystin]: Well anyway I'm not doing this contest. It's unfair in my opinion. I am still allowed to have one, aren't I?

2011-06-21 [Akayume]: I never said you weren't, nor am I pushing the contest on you. If you don't want to enter, you certainly don't have to. (:

2011-06-21 [Mystin]: I'm making my own contest just like this, except people can use their own inspirations musically.

2011-06-21 [Akayume]: Fine. (: I wish you all the best!

2011-06-22 [RemovedAcct]: jeez... special needs...

2011-06-22 [Akayume]: And to all you people watching... Enter! Geese. X3 We need more than two entries please. (:

2011-06-22 [Mortified Penguin]: No we don't.

2011-06-22 [Akayume]: Yes. :O it would be nice. (:

2011-06-22 [Mystin]: Don't you see how what I said makes sense now? People like things that are them. If you let people pick their own stuff, they would flood this contest!

2011-06-22 [Akayume]: I'm not sure how anything said before would lead to enlightenment?

Maybe so, but I enjoy challenging creativity, and pushing artists to discover new things. I don't like to make things easy. (: And I don't want tons and tons of entries; I'd settle for two in each category.

2011-06-23 [Kuramasgirl]: I'll attempt to enter. I've been in more creative moods lately, so hopefully something will come of it. :D

2011-06-23 [Mystin]: You can enter mine too! within my soul

2011-06-23 [Chimes]: Pssst, you should probably ask Akay if she minds you pimping your page on hers before you do it. :P

2011-06-23 [Mystin]: [Alexi Ice] always puts shameless plugs on some wikis

2011-06-23 [Mortified Penguin]: ...And also Bob's Diner!

2011-06-23 [There Is No Cure]: Thank you for the invitation! I will be submitting something soon!

2011-06-23 [Linderel]: Prompts are prompts. My prompt-based contests have been popular enough, and I don't see how this really differs from them. :P

2011-06-23 [Triola]: Also, if the contest says "Draw a cat. Any cat." People don't go "ohmigod, this is so unfair, I want to draw a dog!" <.< Contests are usually theme based, and the theme for this one is this playlist. You're even linked directly to all the songs involved, so it's not as if anyone have an unfair advantage in that regard. Honestly. Step up to the challenge, people!

2011-06-23 [RemovedAcct]: Lols... Dogs.

2011-06-24 [Amiantos Khronos]: Hmmm...

2011-06-24 [Akayume]: Yay Kura/Cure/everyone else. (:

I'd like to think I'm as fair as possible. (:

2011-06-24 [Akayume]: And Msytin: Akane spams random pages, not one she's called unfair and said that she'd make a contest "exactly like". Context is everything. (:

2011-06-24 [Mystin]: My wiki pwns this one.

2011-06-24 [Akayume]: That's an opinion, not a fact. (: I'm happy you're proud of it though!

2011-06-24 [Mystin]: lol I was just kidding! I'm probably taking it down anyway since I'm leaving ET.

2011-06-24 [Akayume]: That's unfortunate. :(

2011-06-24 [Amiantos Khronos]: Dx Seems like everyone is leaving ET.

2011-06-24 [Nioniel]: Seems like some people leave it five times a month. :P

2011-06-24 [Akayume]: Something like that. :P GIIIIRRRLL, I HAVE MISSED YOUUUU.

2011-06-25 [Mortified Penguin]: Hmm, I should leave too, just to spice things up.

2011-06-25 [Akayume]: Elftown would be bland without you. :P

2011-06-25 [Mortified Penguin]: You would think, but I'm ignored so often, nobody would notice I had left.

2011-06-25 [Roma]: I, for one, would be mortified.

2011-06-25 [Akayume]: *badump chhhhhh*

2011-06-25 [RemovedAcct]: I, for two, would be penguin.

2011-06-26 [Mortified Penguin]: I, for three, will wash your car. For five, I'll wax it too.

2011-08-30 [Akayume]: *poke*

2013-03-21 [ancienteye]: This looks interesting...

2013-03-21 [The Crimsonwolf of the Hidden Leaf]: It sure does

2013-03-22 [Kbird]: Hmm I like trying new types of music..

2013-03-22 [ancienteye]: Awesome. XP

2013-03-22 [Vessel_4_Christ]: *looks* Interesting. :D I do love music so.. what do we do here?

2013-03-22 [Akayume]: The idea was to use the music given to inspire you to create art of some kind, but no one ever really got into it, so the page sort of died. :/

2013-03-22 [Vessel_4_Christ]: art as in drawing, writing? any kind.. just wanting to specify

2013-03-22 [Akayume]: "Playlist(1): Poetry
Playlist(1): Prose

Playlist(1): Photos
Playlist(1): Art

Playlist(1): Photomanips"

2013-03-22 [Akayume]: However this isn't running anymore, so you needn't feel obligated to join. (:

2013-03-22 [Vessel_4_Christ]: Oh, okay. Just was curious. Maybe later on something will strike me and I will add something. ^.^
