they're both on which songs i don't know yet. i dunno how everyone else does it, but i just sit down and start writing down bands i'd put on a compilation such as this and go from there.

and ooh, a pre-tournament sounds fun!

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 ...
I think LMP has the best chance to advance but after that it gets foggy. It could come down to tie breakers so maybe you or Khan might stun someone to get that other spot.

In the first group, every match will be top notch until the end.

You're goin' DOWN, M.

(I kid. I know you'll have a really cool one.)
Bring it

I had a hard time choosing between several R.E.M. songs, but I didn't pick Find the River after I remembered the coriander stem part and wondered if you'd choose it. It seems especially fitting given your spiffy cover art

It is yours to use ... I had it on my list, but it didn't make the final cut!

I just scroll through my iTunes from start to finish and put on tracks that I think are great and/or deserve some exposure. Then I fiddle with stuff to get it cohesive and into the time limit, and work from there. Themes and concepts tend to develop on the fly that way. Once I have a clear idea of what I'm achieving, I then do a bit more track swapping.

For this tournament, I started with somewhat of an idea of what I wanted to achieve thematically, so I was predisposed to picking certain bands and tracks. A few of my picks are a bit out of the ordinary, e.g. I ordinarily wouldn't have used U2's Like A Song, but it fits into what I want to achieve.

I almost picked I Don't Sleep, I Dream, but Electrolite was a better fit for the mix I ended up making.

Does 2.6 hours in iTunes time come in under the limit of 2 hours and 40 minutes?

I was a music major. I can only count to 4. And sometimes 6.

if you single click on the total time, it'll convert it to hh:mm:ss

Hmm, I usually start by getting a list of songs I really like, try and mix and match them into something listenable, trim the time and fat. and there you go, it's done. This particular list came a lot easier than the last two did, I feel the 2nd list had stronger songs, but a lack of any type of flow. This time, I think the flow has improved, but I'm still not that great at making a 100% flowtastic list like Meg'sLegs' or Axver's.

The leftover tracks go into the "Save for Later" playlist
