Thought this might turn up some interesting responses and as far as I know it hasn't been done before.Basically the idea of the game is to imagine that you are to be marooned on a desert island with no company apart from yourself and the following items:

- 8 music albums
- One book (the complete works of Shakespeare and the Bible are already on the island)
- One luxury item.

Also none of these items can be chosen to aid your survival, only to make it more bearable and you should provide a short reason for choosing each.

So mine would be:

Appetite for Destruction - Guns'n'Roses: Purely because it's one of the most rock and roll albums ever. Mmmm Slash.
Grace - Jeff Buckley: One of the most beautiful voices ever and fantastic musicianship. Really emotive stuff
Origin of Symmetry - Muse: My favourite band and their best album in by opinion, noisy and agressive riffery
Battle of Los Angeles - Rage Against the Machine: For the excellent guitar wankery of Tom Morello as well as letting everyone who listens to it feel like they're "fighting the power" as it were. Noisy and aggressive.
Any Minute Now - Soulwax: Belgians + Synths= no explanation required wink
The Bends - Radiohead: A fantastic mix of mellow emotiotive stuff and loud guitar wierdness. Johnny Greenwood is something of a hero of mine.
Contraband - Velvet Revolver: See no1
Permission to Land - The Darkness: Silly childish and OTT but very catchy and very fun to listen to. Managing to write a power ballad about herpes is also quite an achievement.

Book: 1984 - George Orwell: I was told by a teacher that I'm legally illiterate until I read it and having nothing else to distract me might let me get round to it.

Luxury item: My guitar because I can't seem to go 5 minutes before feeling the urge to start jamming.


Now your turn.

If we learn nothing more from this exercise at least we'll know that people seem to like "Relient K". Having never heard of them I'm happy assuming that they're either a cereal or a type of petrol.

In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth 3 - Coheed and Cambria - Their best album in my opinion, and one of my favorite CDs ever. Catchy and powerful!
Jelly Beans - YumYumORANGE! - Japanese Ska... how can you be more upbeat than that? I'd e bound to be depressed on a desert Island, and this could pick me up after #1 razz
Commit this to Memory - Motion City Soundtrack - Eh, I'd take this CD for "Everything is Alright" alone, not to mention that I really like the other songs anyway.
Gorillaz - Gorillaz - Gorillaz!
Demon Days - Gorillaz - It's different enough from their first album to warrant being brought along.
Charge!! - The Aquabats - See #2 (Well, besides the Japanese part)
Give Up - The Postal Service - Nice and spacey. It's really quite a therapeutic CD that would be nice to listen to while I contemplate life on my little island.
MMHMM - Relient K - I was running out of ideas and I like this CD enough to warrant jumping on the bandwagon smile

Book - Probably Watchmen as it would give me a lot to think about, and it's just purely brilliant!

Luxury Item - A sugar glider to keep me company with it's crazy little antics biggrin

I'm considering changing mine to a load of Pink Floyd and 70s Prog Rock for the albums, one of those magic eye books and a boatload of hallucinagenics. Never a dull moment that way, time would wizz by...and then drag...and then.

That kind of defeats the point of this, the idea is that you're forced to make specific decisions and are limited by specific criteria due to the situaiton - you have to chose albums that you love so much that you could hypothetically listen to only those 8 for the rest of time. It would've been called "who are your favourite musical artists" if that was the idea wink .

Also if you want a mute female then either you're making some kind of stand against feminism or you havn't thought about ever...well you'll find out in a few years no doubt.

I really honestly couldn't tell you the names of eight albums, I just throw iTunes into artist mode and play it on shuffle.

A mute girl'd be awesome. All of the good stuff, without the whining and complaining. It's not like her mouth would be shut... winkbiggrin

The Bible is always included in the game in order to force people to put a bit of thought in and and come up with more original ideas which arn't as unimaginative (same idea with the Shakespeare).

Albums in no particular order of importance:
1.) Jedi Mind Tricks/Violent by Design
2.) Megadeth/Countdown to Extinction
3.) ES Posthumus/Unearthed
4.) Dope/American Apathy
5.) Layer Cake Soundtrack (including missing song Give me Shelter by the Rolling Stones)
6.) Fingerman: Dr. London and the Triangle Force "Larry Joe Rankin" Lemonade Stand Guys Soundtrack
7.) Skinny Puppy/The Greater Wrong of the Right
8.) Megadeth/Cryptic Writings

Book - "Three Complete Novels: Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, The Sum of All Fears" (Hardcover)...it's one book with all three of them inside.

Luxury Item - A solar powered CD player. What's the point of the albums otherwise?

EDIT: If the CD player is in the included items list but just isn't mentioned, then I would go with a dirt bike with unlimited amounts of gasoline. If that counts as two things, (bike and gas stash) then I'd go with a Lamborghini (the one from that crappy movie Exit Wounds) with a full tank. I'd drive it around til it was almost out of gas, crash it for fun, then use the parts to make weapons to hunt with. Man, I sound like Dwight from the Office.

EDIT #2: But you have to admit. It'd be pretty effing hardcore to go hunting with a knife and maybe a spear or a bow with arrows made out of a $250,000 car.

I thought it was 8 songs rather than entire albums? In any case, here's a mine:

Discosis - Bran Van 3000: Possibly the most gleeful, life affirming record I've ever heard. Eclectic in a lunatic kind of way, but somehow it all makes sense in the end.

Best of - Ray Charles: Ray Charles is indisputedly great, so this 'best of' collection is fairly essential.

Blinking Lights and Other Revelations - Eels: Beautiful, inspirational stuff that goes on an epic journey over two discs.

Electro Shock Blues - Eels: On the surface incredibly depressing, but with an undercurrent of hope and courage that might prove handy when the island gets a bit too much to handle. smile

Trouser Jazz - Mr Scruff: Funky stuff. Though I'd obviously need to take a decent subwoofer with me to the island, too.

The Planets - Holst: Classic, epic and exciting. Bryan Singer used 'Mars' in the X2 trailer for a reason.

Jade Empire - Jack Wall: Great score from this computer RPG. Slightly reminiscent of Crouching Tiger, but launches off into its own style.

Psychonauts - Peter McConnell: Another astounding score from a computer game, this time in a freestyling, crazy jazz style, as well as mixing in some great matador and musical numbers. Useful for when the madness begins to set in.

Book: Watchmen - Alan Moore: It's hard to pick a single book, but this one will have to do for its sheer brilliance. Plus it has good pictures!

Luxury item: A toothbrush. Nothing worse than having to live out your remaining days with a dirty mouth.

There's nothing like good ol' fashioned anti-Christianity sentiments to start fun in the forums. And what's more, you know you're somewhere where the general populus is bound to agree with you.

It's win-win!

This isn't a debate, nor a discussion. So I couldn't care less if anyone agrees or disagrees with me though. smile

Besides, that bible was forced upon me. I can deal with shakespeare on my own island... but the bible I'll deal with accordingly. wink

Nice choices! The Eels are my favorite band, but not many people know them, so I get really happy whenever someone mentions them.

(Actually, when I was thinking about what to reply with on this thread, Blinking Lights was the first album that immediately snapped to mind. (Daisies of the Galaxy is second and Shootenanny! next. However, I'd take any album of his, as I have yet to come across an Eels song that I don't like.)

I might reply to this thread later, but right now I'm too lazy to think after just finishing a 400 (!) point research paper.

Yeah, they're a band that have done very well critically, but not commercially. Though I think they're generally far more popular here in Europe than in the USA, for some reason.

Anyone else ever notice that for a guy who lives off leaves and berries for a fair stretch of time he always seems a bit...chubby?

I'm considering making some ammendments to mine to include either some Rachmaninov or Tchaikovsky in the music section and a piano as my luxury item. It really is gorgeous music and might convince me to get round to learning some classical stuff.
