Sorry, I really have to pull out. I just don't have the time to put together anything. Maybe I'll do something for the next one.

Should we blame Harry Potter?

That really sucks. Thanks for trying to put something together. I hope your schedule clears up and that you have to time to listen to some of the playlists. I really hope you participate in the next game.

You'll love Thrice if you like Fall of Troy, their earlier stuff is mostly screaming. My favorite album of theirs is the most recent, Vhessiu. Just let me know if you'd like a hook up

And I'm lovin your playlists as well, that RATM song is totally . If we weren't against each other, you'd have my vote

Two important peices of business:

1. Axver and I were thinking that the critic's choice should consist of 10 people who have listened to each playlist. The two of us will take spots so that leaves 8 spots for critics. Remember that you will submit your nominees before the end of the championship.

1. Axver
2. Screwtape2
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

I'm thinking of adding some awards so I'll get those to you later.

2. The open spot. AnnieVox wanted any open spot if someone left. Seeing as we only have one weekend left and this comes on such short notice, I don't want AnnieVox to be rushed and anyone else for that matter. That would also increase the newcomer count to 11 and unfairly place one in a veteran group. So I was thinking that we could save AnnieVox a spot in the next game and just keep Group 1 at four people.

We would run it like this:

Round 1-3 would be a basic round robin.
Round 4 would pit the top two against each other as well as the bottom two. Sort of a winner and losers bracket.
Round 5 would be the winners of those matches and the losers against each other. A continuation of the winner and losers bracket idea.

Some matches would happen twice but it all depends on who votes at that time. I would prefer we do this as it is fair to AnnieVox and the rest of the contestants. Any objections or questions?

you know at first the screaming in The Fall of Troy threw me off but I grew to love it

yeah a hook-up on Thrice would be baller...and if you want anything of mine lemme know. and when we're not against each other you should vote for me... I think yours is my favourite so far, but I dunno, LMP's is quite amazing. so far none of the playlists ive listened to have totally sucked so, good job guys

FUCK YOU I WONT DO WHAT YOU TELL ME UNNNNGHHHH MUTHAFUCKAAAAAA

...so what exactly is this critic's choice thing about...? like what do you do if you are a critic's choice?

At the end of the game, a group of critics decide who deserves did awards. You would list your top 3 or maybe top 5 this time of who you thought deserved each award. There is a point total for each place. Then whoever has the most points wins that award. It is meant to recognize different playlists at the end.

Score, thanks love the Editors track you chose too; I'd never heard it before! i'm quite impressed by your playlist. it flows perfectly

im also in love with LMP's though... and I still have screwtape's, edge's, and cori's to listen to...

you know I think COBL has a point with this length thing... would anyone else be in favor of making playlists 80 minutes next time? I do think it'd make it easier for people to listen to all of them, though it'd make it even more difficult to narrow down songs to make the playlist.

I just think it would be kind of interesting. Personally I think it would help more people listen, and to get something at 80 mins flowing and stuff is a good effort.

I think it would completely ruin the competition. Rest assurred, I would neither run nor compete in a game designed for people below the age of 18 with no attention span.

Yes, that was rude. Sue me.

Okay well if it ever happens don't compete then, simple as that lol. And as I said it's got nothing to do with attention span. How doo you find the time to listen to 64 hours of music over and over and over when you have Uni and everything else?

carry on..
