So, sometimes sudden death, you know, uh, makes sense. This way, while not yielding an ideal "Top 64 Songs, In Order" style list, will be efficient enough to get the best of the best to the final rounds. And that's what we want.

I don't wanna reply to this in the thread it's in in IQ but my response is:

Sense of Adventure is what I named the fetus I had to abort the last time I used a 15 year old condom.

by the way i just wanna add that i think it is really important everybody ends their posts with their initials or names. sigs are overrated people. so is that whole identification block on the left of your post. if you don't sign everything you type, how the hell am i supposed to know who is typing it?

But that's not what I'm saying at all, and I don't know where you dragged World Cup style rounds from.

Why not divide your 64 songs into eight groups of eight? It avoids the sudden death issues.

no wonder i don't recognise this. i gave in and turned it on, it's brand new. i didn't know they'd recorded a new concert.
