6 Degrees of Sepa-‘Rage’

whitestripes.jpgLong running and still excellent ABC music video programme, Rage, is conducting a really interesting competition that’s totally piqued my interest.

Firstly, the prize allows the winner to programme an hour of Rage. This is something I’ve always wanted to do. Really. Programming Rage, in my mind, means that somebody has, in someway, made it.

The following information comes from the media release:

On Saturday night April 10, every video played on rage will be connected to the one before it – the bands will have shared the stage, their members, the same songs or even their DNA. How is Vanilla Ice connected to Massive Attack? What do Jack White and Jay-Z have in common?

An incomplete playlist will be published on April 2 on abc.net.au/rage a week before the special, with every sixth clip missing and replaced by a clue. For a chance to pick the playlist for an hour of rage viewers will be asked to decipher the clues, figure out as many of the missing videos as they can and submit their answers – along with their ultimate killer rage playlist.

Entries close at 5pm on Friday April 9.

You can find out more about the competition on the Rage website.

  1. Oooooh… One hour, nothing but constant repeating of Duran Duran's “Girls on Film”?
    …COUNT ME IN-!

    You have to submit your playlist with your entry? But that removes what I reckon would be the best part of programming rage: trawling the massive catalogue for hidden gems. Pity.

  3. Oh, I missed that little bit at the end.

    Does that mean I wouldn't get one of those great big blue books if I won? That does dampen the experience somewhat.
