I'm excited to see what your list has to offer, IWB, and I doubt anyone will pan your list.

I will gladly give up my spot if it means it will make room for IWB and iYup. I'm excited to hear what both of them come up with, and they deserve spots in this thing.

I don't think you'll need to GAF, I do believe Yup is #20

Thanks for the gesture, GAF. It looks as though there is still space for everyone, though. Maybe I'll include a Cheryl Cole song in your honor.

I have decided not to enter this time around because I have no time over the holiday now that I'll be working. I'll be following, though, and I'm glad to see IWB and iYup and the like all joining.

Also, I'm definitely in if there's a best of 2010 game. I've followed this year much closer than years past.

Good luck with that! Maybe it wouldn't be as divisive a second time around.

Hah, no shit, it's rare when people around here think Metal Island sounds like an enjoyable idea! Stick around, because I will unleash it at some point. I'm just not totally happy with it yet, so I'm not using it this time around. I don't want it to become my DI Chinese Democracy though. It'll be interesting to see how the forum responds, because it starts fairly tame (Alcest, Psychotic Waltz, Devin Townsend) and builds up to Norwegians shrieking while they throw a drumkit down a stairwell (i.e. Immortal and early Ulver). Judging by past experience, I'll lose everybody around about Borknagar.

As for this time, I hope you like Kyuss, because that's the only out-and-out metal I'm using. There is Amesoeurs as well, but I consider them post-punk more than anything.

Yeah, I'm excited about all the new contestants; it'll be really cool to have some different perspectives. And yes, it's good to have a new ally especially with Liam having fallen off the DI bandwagon.

Well, I was looking forward for an entry for you but I understand you have to work and stuff. Thanks for all your past entries it influences me to take this game to a higher level. Enjoy your holidays.
