Well since the cat is out of the bag for those who frequent IRC I suppose I’ll let everyone in on more of the finer points of the details.
I was hoping to make this challenge a goal to improve the “quality” of ones LDs over the “quantity” thereof. I recall having very few out of my recorded LDs in which the detail was superb and the images lasting. There are a few, yes, and sure it all feels lifelike, but the detail of it all is lacking… or at least the recalled detail.
So, I’ve put together a series of tasks to try to alleviate that problem. Hopefully. But before you read the second task I’d advise you read the following:
SPOILER - Click to view
So… a heavy emphasis in all of the following tasks will be on the description you give to me of the event. The aim of this challenge is not to recall what happened in your LDs, but to recall HOW it happened. So, without further ado, here’s task two.
Task 2: Sound
Countless numbers of my DJ entries feature a line like the following:
“Don’t recall the exact wording.” Other sounds, among dialogue, are also equally blurred. We recall “hearing birds chirping” but after awaking we can’t recall how that chirp sounded.
This week’s task will charge you with listening to the world around you. You will need to report on the quality, intensity, and fidelity of a sound or sounds.
[b]1. Hear a Conversation or Dialogue + 15
- Hear some Music or Singing + 20
- Listen to the Silence + 40
In order to gain points for this task you have to report about the sound and not just that you heard it. For conversation I’m looking for exact wordings, and other details like tone of voice. For music, while song lyrics can be reported, details about the instrumental such as its tempo can be reported as well as if it sounded familiar.
For the last, part, however, you will most likely have to be lucid. You will need to find a quiet place to stop and listen, and report the various sounds you heard. For all the task parts, however, detail is key so please include as much detail as you can.
Great job on the previous bonus! More people completed it than I thought would. This week’s bonus…
* Find the recipe for a pizza sandwich!
Find any kind of recipe your mind comes up with (for a “pizza sandwich”). In order to earn bonus points for this task more than once the recipe will have to be found differently each time.
This task will run for one week until approximately 6 PM EST, Sunday, September 1, 2013. Good luck!
First, the creativity points go to… Thorn! for his “Yoshi” method of laying an egg. I thought that it was very clever…

You may have noticed my name at the end of the list. While I will not be competing “officially” nor will I be eligible for creativity points, under the suggestion of a friend I will, in my own words, “get in the LC” for the heck of it.
Under no circumstance will I be eligible to host the next LC. I’m just curious (and would like the competition boost very much) about participating again. If anyone has any problems about this let me know. I’ll “remove” myself from the public scoreboard.
