It seems that we are more than ready to start thinking of the next episode in the Shines Compilations saga There are a few minor points we need to decide on before we start working - who's in and what are we doing? Who's in? I have compiled a list of people who (knowingly or unknowingly ) have expressed interest in the past. Some have already checked in, hopefully the rest will follow. If I have forgotten anybody, please slap me and the mistake will be corrected. Anybody is welcome. If you are tempted, please, please, please, join us - it is great fun! The List: (edit: it is now the final list) antigone - either Big10 - EB Blair - EB Brownskin818 - EB CaribSalsera - RB chrisk - EB GuyDC - RB emarrific - EB Jag75 Jolinia Lola lolita - EB MacMoto - either mangomotion - RB PielCanela redsalsero - RB ptwist SalsaGipsy smiling28 sweavo - either What are we going to do? Let's throw in some ideas, brainstorm a bit and see what happens. Here are a few possibilities that have been suggested in the past: ---> One song, everybody gets a part, records a contribution and everything gets spliced together - that was the format of the first two compilations ---> Adding a competitive element, two compilations with two groups of people - that's what we did last time with the Guys v Galls compilations. We can use any division we want - geographical, on1 v on2, whatever ---> Partner work - find a partner (from SF or not) and record your part of the song together - either as partner work or as shines (a few people did that on the second compilation). With the New Jersey Congress and MamboCity in London there will be more opportunities for people to meet and work together ---> Instead of salsa, we can do a chacha this time - chacha shines can be very cool as well and something we get to do much less often than salsa shines ---> The Craziest Location - we can record our contributions in a weird location and/or wearing something crazy Any other ideas?
