Yeah, let's do it. I've always meant to participate in Cinema Club, but I doubt I will feel like watching a movie and writing my thoughts on it very often. Music, however, isn't so tiring. I'm up for organizing it if no one feels like it.
Awesome. I figure it'd be best to pretty much just adapt Dr-Worm's system to albums because it's working so well in the Cinema Club.
It would work like this: One person chooses an album for us to listen to over the week, then on the weekend we have wonderful in-depth discussions about it like housewives trying to get away from their families at a book club. Then on Sunday/Monday one of the people that participated in the previous week will be randomly chosen to pick the album, and so on and so forth.
The whole idea of this is to broaden our horizons a bit and listen to stuff that we might not have stumbled upon on our own.
Not every album needs to be incredibly obscure and hard to find, but something that most of us haven't heard before would be much more interesting to talk about than something like Thriller or Rumours. I also really like the idea that each week's album should be from a different decade and genre from the previous one, just to keep things fresh.
I'm not sure how you wanna kick things off, we could type up a list and have everyone sort of vote and pick whichever one sounds the most interesting, or someone could simply volunteer to be the first picker. Both sound perfectly fine to me.
