Hello, /mu/tants!

The /mu/ Book Club functions like (wait for it) a book club. Each Sunday, we choose an album. The following Sunday, we discuss it in-depth. Check out the Overview for more...

The /mu/ Book Club is a group wherein /mu/tants (exhaustively) discuss an album of the previous week’s choosing. The idea for a /mu/-driven discussion group came up in some thread in early May 2010. I -- Kid B [2] on /mu/ -- decided to take on the idea and organized it into a weekly thing.

The reason for the book club is simple: it gives everyone ample time to listen to the week’s chosen album, it promotes musical and thematic discussion, and it (ideally) gives us some sense of community. The Book Club threads will be much like listen-alongs -- except the listening will have already been done, and the discussion will be front-and-center.


Q: How is each album chosen?
A: It’ll be based on the ‘doubles’ method used for listen-alongs, although in this case the majority has to agree to the chosen album.

Q: I was at my bro’s wedding on Sunday and don’t know what we’re listening to for next week. Wat do?
A: The record, along with a working link, will be posted in the Last.fm group (check the Discussions).

Q: What time will the discussion thread begin?
A: The ‘official’ thread will probably be created at around 4 PM EST - but if you don’t see one, create one yourself!

Q: This’ll never work.
A: You’re probs right and all . . . but it’s worth a shot.

Happy listening everyone!

    Fuck that shit, if group leader isn't willing to do anything I'll take charge of it. I tried doing this in high school and it didn't work out at all. i owe this to myself, man.

    Everybody send some messages to the group leader and see if we can't get this shit rebooted.

    Just found this group. Last activity over a month ago. I really like the idea of this thing, though, and was wondering if anybody cared enough to really do it?

    Guess you didn't like it. I thought it was . . . indulgent. But yeah, that album was way too long and 'epic' to start with. We're going with something miles more accessible. Hope you don't mind!
