Here's what I think. The master list is posted on 31 July. The tournament begins the next Monday, which gives people nearly a week to begin listening. The first few heats will run independently, so that people have time to listen to each, and then we ease into running multiple heats at once.

I think the heats for round one should be 48 hours long, and by the end of that, we should be running at least two at a time. From round two until the finals stage, a heat is only 24 hours and every heat for a single group goes live at the same time. Quarter finals are held at the same time but for 48 hours. Same for semi finals and for third place/grand final.

But that's just my opinion. Phanan's the one who will make the polls, so it's ultimately his call, whatever works best for him.
I think it would be better if we had two matches at a time in the first round. I just don't want to have this last too long. By the way, I was planning to send out whatever links we have out on the weekend before the deadline before sending out the rest on the 21st. So I think we could start it on that Thursday.

Mine is essentially a quadrilogy in eight parts. Two parts to a desert island tracklist.

AOTEAROA: RUGGED INDIVIDUAL

Part I
Kapiti Island: Glistening Like A Pearl

Part II
Stewart Island: The Bottom Of The World

Part III
The Catlins: Tyranny Of Distance

Part IV
The Wairarapa: Lust Of A Pioneer

Part V
Southern Alps: Ramparts On The Sea

Part VI
Marlborough Sounds: Thunderclap In The Sky

Part VII
Kapiti Coast: A World To Explore

Part VIII
Papatuanuku: Fooled By Her Kind

It's very much a story of atmospheres and soundscapes, of isolation and experiences. Quite by accident, a more specific conceptual story was created in Parts I and II, and while I'm not making much of a deliberate effort, Parts III-VIII should continue it. It's based around Egon and Rowena Verlaine. I will be very impressed if anyone can figure out where I got those names from before seeing my tracklist for this round. Clue: it's got nothing to do with Tom.

only part of it.
mine is about a man who finds himself repeating past mistakes and looking for redemption anywhere he can find it

only to fail again

Actually, I spotted the potential for the Egon and Rowena Verlaine story just before I left. Yesterday, I began work on a tracklist for Desert Island IV, and quite by accident, it slotted perfectly in as a continuation of III. The rest of the basic outline came today.

However, I haven't chosen many tracks, especially not for the last four parts, so this could really go anywhere.

Nah, I don't give a shit about that. I'm just sick of having to ask people for things like track and overall runtimes or having to go through and fix confusing/inconsistent punctuation.

How you can think that far ahead is beyond me. I have only one idea about the next playlist but it is so absurdly off the wall that people may think I too have lost my mind.

By Egon do you mean: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egon_%2...nal_country%29

That would be so cool.
