I can do a great running diary of a sporting event (fuck you bill simmons) but I'd be useless for this sort of diary. Fun to read them, though.

I think Phanan said he'd send some second section lists to those who were ready.

Yeah, tourist, LM, and Ashley have indicated they were ready for a few more, so I'll be sending them the first couple from Group 2, although I would hold up on comments for them until that thread is posted.

As for me, I've been listening to Ashley's playlist today. Loved the first part, which is probably not a surprise coming from me. You get extra props for including The Hooters and Men At Work. And I thought the songs went well together. I'd say the only transition that was a bit awkward was Metric -> Okkervil River. And great job ending with Wallflower. An unheralded gem from him.

I'm already through a little of your second part, and will comment more shortly.

I was really hoping you of all people would comment specifically on the Springsteen track. For one reason or another I thought you'd get a kick out of that.

Well, I figured people get sick of me praising Springsteen all the time...

But yes, great track. I've said all along that, while I enjoy most of The River, the outtakes are far superior to some of the stuff he ended up throwing on there. I Wanna Be With You, Loose Ends, Take 'Em As They Come, Where The Bands Are, Restless Nights, Roulette...it just goes on and on. What he did during that time is quite amazing.

I'm almost through with your playlist. Really digging the second half here. The start was ok, but it really picked up towards the middle. I liked how you paired Doves and U2 with Big Country and Dave Matthews. That Big Country album is great; I almost put Chance on mine, but it missed the cut (although it might pop up on DI8). Also, I haven't cared for much of Dave Matthews for a long time, but I maintain that Crash is the best thing he ever did, and Two Step is an old favorite. This stretch from Doves to U2 was a highlight.

People are going to be sick of Teardrop by the time they get to my list.

I think I like your placement of it better than mine though.

I finished a while ago. The last four songs together was also very good. In fact, going from U2 to Röyksopp was better than I thought it would be, and since I liked that section as well, it turned out to be a very strong run there.

Overall, I think this is the best one you've done yet. You might have even exceeded your other half this time. No small feat!

About 10 days to 2 weeks after the start of this one.

Hopefully we don't develop a Teardrop situation with Kingdom of Rust, as both Ashley and I have used that track.
