Holy crap.

I said I was going to try and finish this before work today, but I got called in today to work a fucking double and I just got home. I'm wiped. I don't currently have the energy or the attention span to type up my formatted list and upload stuff tonight. Tomorrow though. I promise.

I can't wait to see all the lists this round. From the sound of things it's going to be quite the competition.

I've never even heard Muse, unless they were included on a previous desert island tracklisting

From Screwtape's email, I see a couple of songs I thought of using, or artists that I thought of including, but that didn't make the cut. And a couple of tracks are the same ones I picked (just 2 I think). I wanted The Verve-Bittersweet Symphony, but it just didn't fit. Still working on the order of the songs. Don't know if I can master the flow, yet along commentary and artwork

I'm really starting to miss the Prog Island game, where I was excited about every tracklist.
What....... no Il Volo on any of the lists?

Not even any Dream Theater.

I do hope you're having some input on Lila's list.

Is that like Il Divo, but more reliable and securely built?

i think i'm done adding songs to my playlist, i just have to come up with an order. that shouldn't take long. i hope to have everything submitted by monday.

also, i'm working on my cover. i have a question though. looking at people's submissions...for those of you who didn't do a square cover (like say, 400 x 400 pixels) did you do it so it would fit on the front and back? mine wouldn't work like that anyway but i was surprised to see so many rectangular covers!

No, not really. He just nixed some songs. Funny how a couple appeared on a few lists (Tangerine). I may still have the same artist, but chose different songs by that artist. He's probably wishing he was competing


And no, Il Divo is nothing like Il Volo. Trust me!

BTW, what if someone in the competition is out of town while the competition is in effect? We will be out of town for a few days in early August with no computer access. Can we cast our vote to Axver or Screwtape? What do we do? I'm mainly concerned with my heats of course

That means tracks in other languages.

Of course. You'd just leave a list of who you'd vote for in each match.

How can you say Muse are hacks? Have you seen them play? Matt Bellamy is my latest guitar hero

well, finished harry potter, so now I can deal with this (found the links in my spam folder...why does gmail hate the desert island competition? ) Looking forward to listening to all of these

That dude can play a guitar, but songwriting isn't exactly his strong suit. Most of the songs sound the same to me: epic, overwrought, just a bunch of noise, etc...I can't help but burst out laughing at some of the lyrics. At least Radiohead and Queen have dynamics and aren't "gloom-n'-doom-n'-the end of the world" all the time. I mean, seriously, one listen to Take A Bow pretty much tells you all you need to know. If you hate that, don't even bother.

It's proving too hard for me because the time limit is far too long. Any chance for DI 4 we could reduce the time limit? I think it would be a really interesting game, and it would encourage more people to listen to other people's playlists.
