You may or may not get my vote (it's not your fault if you don't...when you only listen to a playlist once and it contains music that you're unfamiliar with, it won't have the time it needs to sink in), but I appreciate hearing new music.

I was a music major. I can only count to 4. And sometimes 6.
On my version of iTunes, I can just click where it says 2.6 hours and it converts to hours:minutes:seconds.

Thanks! 2:38:03! Talk about cutting it close!

I think I'm almost done. I need to mull it over, sleep on it, maybe tweak it. I have one song that's on the verge of being cut, but otherwise, I think I'm really pleased with the flow.

Whoo!

But damn it, my attention to the game caused me to miss Ichiro's inside-the-park home run during the All-Star Game.

well, uhhh, if it makes you feel any better, there's a song i'd love to use, but it's really a two part song (two separate songs) and thus isn't allowed

I really wanted to use "Brain Damage" and "Eclipse" by Floyd this time around

They're essentially the same song.

I've had iTunes for several years and never knew it would do that. I calculated all of my times At least I came up with the same number!

Well, yeah, this is a difficult point. What about Happiest Days Of Our Lives/Brick Part II?

I don't know what to say to things like that.

And FUCK, I just discovered my tracklist runs over. When I was revising it before going to NZ, I forgot to cut things down back to 2 hours 40 and ordered it based on it being 2 hours 58. This is going to be really difficult to cut down ...

You could even say:

The Thin Ice -> Brick pt. 1 -> Happiest Days... -> Brick pt. 2

act as one track.

I ended up being able to use most of what was on my very first brainstorming list, which is cool. Most of what got cut was added as a "hey, maybe I can squeeze this in" thought.

yeah, i'm of two minds when it comes to this:

part of me thinks no, we shouldn't allow two songs at all even in this instance because then people can say "well how come they get to..." and that's not fair.

another part of me thinks if it's a two-parter, one could look at it like it's really two parts of one big song. in most cases, if you listen to one song of a two-parter you only get half the story. so it's incomplete, and you really need both songs to help get your point of view across, thus both songs should be allowed.

i dunno

I don't expect to. Actually, I don't even expect your vote THIS time out, unless the person I'm going against has all top 40 hits or Radiohead karaoke tracks.

So a whole disc of an instrumental version of "Creep," then?
