I;ve been a very busy little beaver. I have been building a mad amount of dams from harvested corn husks. BotB's incredulous servers will soon be running on 100% organic high-fructose hydraulic power.

As such, we are quickly reaching the end to 2011's final quarter and fiscal year. Promises were made by the county director's office to oversea future battle assemblies but they merely shrugged their shoulders. As raw and poetic that may appear to be, we here, the fellows and n00bs of the BotBr fellowship, have thusly assembled solely for battles. Battle this, battle that. Battle. Battle. battles . . .

There will be no Ann Arbor party this year. I haven't the energy or time to organize such an event. But there is an alternatively, and rather better version to this story. In the second year of BotB, previous to any concept of a dedicated website, said year was replete with two such 25 sample 48 hour type battles. Since BotB celebrated Ann Arbor XI last year, this years Ann Arbor version and anniversary number could be no larger a sum than nine point five.

BotB technically, and on paper, refuses to commit any action plan with whole hearted half efforts. Thus, in the immediate present, I do suggest to the fellow BotBrs : articulate battle ideas that will work in the current BotB system to keep us all in a state of busy beaver action. Winter Chip VII will be in January (as to not interfere with write an album in a February month).

- teh lucky vomits :P

We should have a big module compo for once.
Sure, it's been a format in big compos, but not *the* format.

edit: or a klystrack compo

I liked Klystrack so much that I let the author use one of my songs in the examples folder. ;3

How about an instrument battle? We could do a bunch of different formats like instrument files for fast tracker, impulse tracker, famitracker, renoise etc. . .

Then have a series of 48 hour battles centered around them different formats?!?! xP

I have no problem with the notion of having contests *like* Ann Arbor and Detroit even if there are no parties to go with them (or if they become Flint or Battle Creek or Sault Saint Marie or whatever,) I guess it's no secret that I like the remix compos better than the megachipformat ones.
