Quick question about this idea. When the time periods are over for each theme. Will the threads be left open or be locked? May sound like a silly question, but something to think about in this idea.
thanks

^My view(Just IMO), is that they are locked but there is a sticky that contains links to all of the threads for future reading. Watcha think?

Yeah, you are right. I change my vote to one genre per week, which would probably keep up momentum better than a biweekly genre.

Actually, I notice you don't have klezmer music on your list. Not that klezmer music is funny, although it can be, but it is a distinct and unique genre and a lot of fun! Klezmer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

James (not meaning to fight wi' cha), my vote would be to keep the threads open indefinitely so latecomers can still participate even after the week ends. I do like the idea of having a sticky with links to all the threads, though!

If you're going to have themes why have everything so genre based?

Arrow Crossover (music)

Besides describing music of a distinct genre that becomes broadly popular, the term "crossover" has sometimes been used to describe music that deliberately mixes genres, whether or not this music proves to be popular with a mass audience.
Other examples of crossover in music are bands that play a mix of genres such as funk, rap, rock, metal and/or punk, for instance bands like Faith No More, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Primus and Rage Against the Machine, 311, or crossover thrash bands such as D.R.I. or Municipal Waste.
Just thought that I would bring the subject of crossover music up, for no particular reason. (just a suggestion)

What would the point in weeks if the discussion carries on after the week, I mean if the threads stay open the fixed weeks would have no purpose as when we are promoting Folk week the discussion for Rap week will still be happening.

^There are plenty of crossover genres already in the list, like f.ex funk metal and fusion. I don't mind threads staying open myself, but collecting links in a sticky is of course a good idea.

They don't have to be genres of course, but it's practical in that it's easy to get a list of a whole bunch and they're somewhat defined so that people should be communicating about the roughly same thing. People can do simple research on genres on their own and find out who the main artists are .. This is harder to do if it's sci-fi or dance week.

I would like there to be a thread about each theme. I would like it if that thread teaches something basic about something, for example about a genre. That's also harder to do if it's middle earth week or robot week.

Veg, adding klezmer

Alright, by friday I'll randomize the list and start setting up a calendar. It's important to do this some days before the week starts because it gives us a little time to mentally prepare, for example prepare for that theme's thread. If it's a theme I don't know at all, I might ask someone else to write it!

So, if you have any sugggestions, consider writing them now I'm not saying the list is final on friday, but it will be more final than it is now at least.

However this turns out in the future, it seems reggae is first

If anyone feel they know reggae well enough to write a general reggae thread when the time comes (monday), that would be awesome! If noone steps up to the task, I'll try myself although I'll admit that aside from knowing about a few jamaicans, I consider myself reggae clueless!

General Reggae thread similar to this one?
http://www.musicbanter.com/reggae-sk...on-reggae.html

Or more general than that?
In either case, Jackhammer & Bulldog would probably be a good choice for that.
