Anecdotal stuff:

"After spending about a year and a half here getting my feet wet and meeting some great people, my connection to MJ was greatly enhanced by Chikoppi's launch of the first Loop It Or Lose It challenge. See link: LIOLI 1.
It's important to understand how this challenge came about. Back in the fall of 2006 Egobandit had gotten flamed by someone for using loops in his songs, so he posted to the forum something along the lines of "What's all the fuss about loops?" If anyone can locate the thread I'd appreciate it - it's a beauty. Of course what followed was an extremely heated debate about the use of loops in recordings, bringing out the best and worst in the community. Are "loopers" musicians or arrangers? Are people that play instruments "real musicians" and those that don't some other species. You can just imagine.
The result of all this back and forth was Chikoppi's brilliant suggestion that everyone use the same loop in a song - within certain parameters (see link) - and let the results speak to the issue. Solomon couldn't have come up with a better solution - it was time to get down to the music - not the method. I had a great time working on my entry and listening to all of the submissions. LIOLI went on to become a recurring event that never ceases to energize the community and bring out new levels of creativity. Thanks Brian - thanks Tim.

This has been a MacJams Minute. Post yours."
