Kitchen Hall of Fame
on: May 06, 2020, 05:22:28
Evening fellow Kitcheners/Kitchenettes!

To save you the reading I'll put it simply.

I've been wondering how everyone feels about proposing a "Kitchen Hall of Fame" for songs/lyrics. It goes without saying, the art we create Is highly subjective, no one person can determine what is 'good' and what is 'bad'. However, for inspirational purposes along with other reasons, I feel there should be user curated section dedicated to songs/lyrics that really stand out above others. Whether that be determined by views, replies or the Kitchen Staffs' fancy. In the past few weeks I've seen the community come so very close together in these trying times, wouldn't it be great having a forum dedicated entirely to analysing these elected songs?

I'm aware this is the purpose of existing sections (songs for review/lyrics), but nevertheless I always find myself a hard time looking for a place to start. A sort of reference if you will. There's an archive of astounding poetry here, so much so I'm afraid the gems are being blown with the dust. It really sucks...

Anyways, I really do believe a little something like this will add a little freshness to the site, something defined and eye-catching for newcomers! A Kitchen's own "SONGWRITING SPECIALS"

Let me know what you guys & gals think down below! I'd love to hear everyone's perspective on this matter! ESPECIALLY YOU KITCHEN STAFF!!! There's no need to hide!!!  :D

Peace, Love & More Love,
Cheers,
Lewis.

interesting idea  :ok: @LewisMac  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

i had an idea a while ago of ...creating a Kitchen top 5...of songs...that really would be selected and actively changed based on some weird algoritm ...of a combination of listens, replies, smileys etc.

but yes, something like an active and dynamic "Kitchen hall of fame" thing, like you are proposing...i think that could be fun  :yes: :yes: :thumbsup:

i wonder how the fellow-minimods @Mar T. , @Bill from November Sound @MrBouzouki @oorlab @Leonard Scaper  and @all_kitchenauts...think about this....?

me, myself, and Pie

I like the idea of having a number of songs that have been deemed exemplary for the purpose of directing new members to a good place to sample the Kitchen cuisine.
"The main thing is to have a gutsy approach....but use your head." Julia Child

 "In a world of robotic conformity, the only originality left in music is the imperfections" Eric Craptone

"Special thanks to Steve Gleason for making me who I am today." Leonard Scaper

interesting ideas @LewisMac  @Dutchbeat @Leonard Scaper  - I thought about some curated list on soundcloud with recent additions. So that you can listen songs without having to click too much. For me a hall of fame ( I first misread it as hell of fame :-)  would be okay too, but a list of the month summing up fresh music, would be cool too.

That was the idea of the Kitchenradio https://soundcloud.com/songwriter-in-the-kitchen I think. That could be freshened up regularly. The Jingles are cool! Didn't hear them in quite some time.
If a few Kitchen volunteers curate our Kitchen SC account we could get something cooking there too.

Good idea @LewisMac , although the kitchen radio, like @oorlab said, serves this purpose.
That having said, we haven't updated the playlist since somewhere last year. I like the idea of curation, at least by the staff, and staff-selected members.
I believe I also recognise a wish to open a forum category (Like 'Songs for Review') called 'The kitchen radio'. I like that as well.
I think we should discuss this idea with our staff first, we'll do that and check back here.
Cheers, Love, Health and Peace!

BTW, we do have a 'Wall of fame', but we use that to record the winners of our famous kitchen challenges:

There is a monthly thingy highlighting (randomly I think) new entries,  or am I mistaken?
I like that idea a lot.

I’ve been won over by
- zedd’s music
- Leonard scaper’s music
But I’ve no clue which songs they were posting at the time.
Good songs, that much is true.

Kind regards, Gus
