It's a moot point, anyway, as all the spots are now filled.

And Gmail made things really easy, because it automatically redirected the e-mail you sent yesterday to my junk folder! Not taking the piss? Pull the other one.
Too bad, everything was formatted correctly, song choices and all

It's okay, I figured you might be holding a grudge over from me forgetting to submit for that game

Be thankful newcomers, be very thankful you're not in those groups.
I think that Group 1 is worst. I can't possibly begin to tell who will come first or last there.

In Group 3, I think if Khan or I advance, it will be due to an upset win or two. My tracklist is more obscure than last time, and knowing both my tastes and Khan's relative to typical voting patterns here, I think we're most likely to take the bottom two spots (though I expect things to still be close). LMP is sure to advance, and imp vs LJT will be the decisive round.

Then again, last time, I said there was no way I'd get past the quarter-final at best ...

Want to have an exhibition match, LMP? No rules, no BS, just you, me, two playlists, and one forum member left standing.

We could call it Desert Island Album Game III Pre-Tournament Lingerie Bowl I

The title of your e-mail was 'Dessert Island, you hos' and you were 30 minutes away from the max on both discs. Then you had that picture of R2-D2 as a cover. Should we have thought you were being serious about this?

I'd love to do that.

Want me to forward you my stuff? I can't create polls.

gee thanks! it's true though. i'm trying to make this playlist a little less...less like a countdown of "totally awesome 80s guilty pleasures songs" or something similar you'd see on vh1. but i don't wanna go too far the other way and have people not vote for me because i put on kelly clarkson

Okay that settles it. Me, LMP, and LemonMelon are going to do a round-robin, 2-game each min-tournament, with the top two finishers facing off in the first ever Desert Island Album Game III Pre-Tournament Lingerie Bowl I.

I'll get with you guys in PM to work out the deets. My internet is a bit spotty but we could probably get this going by Friday.

Send me an email instead:

But this will kick copious amounts of ass anyway.

Pre-tournament? Sounds fun. Hell, if Canadiens wins, I'll give him automatic entry to Desert Island IV if he wants it.

Just as long as you include Split Enz and Joy Division, you'll have a good chance of getting my vote.
