yes, you get to choose which shirt you want from the store, as for the stickers they have a standard system of a little bit of everything.

Exactly how I feel. Regardless, I'm fucking pumped now for the next mac. I don't care if the theme is candy land, I'm ripping it a new ass to shit from.

Also, I'd like to be the first to suggest a MAC theme. :D

Hopefully beginning a terrible trend in alliteration, I am going to suggest a theme of Epic Endings.

As in, something like movies credit music, or when the hero is riding off into the sunset (so to speak.)

I SUGGESTED IT SO I WIN PREEMPTIVELY :D

Hmmm... how about Epic let downs? Everysong would be a build up with out a song. I think it would be really awesome to have a mac with a sense of humor.

Congrats to the winners, great job guys.

There were some kick ass entries this time around. Hopefully when I'm perusing the flash submissions I'll hear some of these, but oh well.

Damn, I came 9th over all. Oh well, now I know I have to work even harder for next year. Congratulations to the winners, hope you enjoy your prizes.

By the way, what was the contest judged on? It would help me improve if I knew.

- Ability to stand out whilst still holding onto the core that was Madness. There were a lot of submissions that blended together like water and more water. Yes they were good, yes they were pumping, but when everything is pumping the same way, all of them become... useless per say.

- As well a song's ability to entertain was a big factor. Yes a song should be usable in flash (so doesn't jump around all the time), but a 5 minute track with repetitive loops was not going to cut it.

- Length. Songs should not exceed 3:30ish. There was one song here that was 8:00+ long. That was fail. No. It was catchy and entertaining for the first 4 minutes, then it was just overkill.

- For this MAC technical skills also came in very high up on the priority list. It's very easy to clip and distort your track with the amount of bass people were shoving into it. Hearing any kind of clipping or poorly mastered track was big no no points against the track itself. This was especially true if the song sounded generic.

- Replayability. This is more of a personal thing, I don't know if the other judges would agree, but there are some things people do to their songs which the first time you hear it, it's pretty neat, but the second and third etc times it's just annoying. This includes speech samples *mostly FL defaults* and other "intermission" sounds which disrupt the flow of the song for the sake of disrupting the flow to make the listener stop and pay attention.

Hope that helps.

I was eating in our student union's courtyard today while a band of two performed. They played very relaxing, non shalant guitar with a trumpet soloist.

I'd be nice to have a MAC that presented your skills outside of the DAW.
