For Theme Thusdays

Mossy suggested I should have a thread posted for MOONies to lookup the curently running themes on Thursday. So here it is, hope this is a convenience for you all.
This is all new to me (my first thread)

so it looks like today 8/3/06 we shall do songs that are 2m30s or shorter
we need as many moonies to place reqs as possible so we don't get fillers from SAM

Re: For Theme Thusdays

When you in the US still sleep, we in Europe will define the Theme...

Or while the Europeans are sleeping, the US people could decide the theme for the next day

Re: For Theme Thusdays

I agree with Mr. G

....................arrrrrrrrggggggggg !!!!!!, What lotus fears, I must agree.

Here would be a great Place to post the Theme and Date. With the Shoutbox now only going Back from time of sign on, We can no longer see the early Morning Shouts. I love the interaction from Moonies that this brings.


..so whats next Thursday??????????

Re: For Theme Thusdays

I was going to suggest a way to collect theme ideas. I would then put up the theme as a frontpage news item. Anyone visiting the site could them see it. This would also give a fair shake to those all around the globe wanting to offer up a suggestion for a theme.

Start them rolling in....

Perhaps a poll of theme ideas each week... the winner being the theme for the subsequent Thursday.

Re: For Theme Thusdays

Someone suggested on Thursday that we have a "no song over 2:30" theme for a day. I thought that was a great idea since there are several short songs I have never heard on the Moon that fall in that category.

Re: For Theme Thusdays

Theme suggestion for this Thu 8/3: mythical locations - Avalon, The Shire, Valhalla, etc - and Ditch 9 of Dante's 8th Circle for the fruit & nut crew.
