It's a tie.

I think I love you Lemonchick.

Screwtape, there's tons of stuff on your list that I like a lot. And there's other stuff that's not familiar to me, and I'll need time to let it sink in. And there are a couple of things, like the Holst, that I'm just probably not going to like. (I've always loved that Faure piece, though.) I think classical music is a bit risky to put into this kind of competition.

With so many playlists, it might be better to make the contest last a bit longer. I've listened to every list once or twice, but it would be great to be able to go back and revisit them more often during the course of the competition to really get to know them.

Lots of people really enjoy your list, so I think you've done a great job.

Thank you.

There will be a lot of time to take in the next playlists. The first batch goes out on Sunday.

Sweet.

Is there time to get into Desert Island 4 (or 5)?

The game after the next hasn't been planned yet. There will probably be a small break with some rule changes. I'm sure you'll get a spot.

Thanks -- and I appreciate the work you, phanan and Axver have put into this, as well as all the work people put in creating their lists!

I didn't even read the whole thread until now!

You're welcome Screwtape.

I just don't know how to make something the majority of people will really like. I almost feel like every playlist has a shot to win except me. I'm also just exhausted and frustrated by the behind the scenes work and the Critic's Choice Awards. I only have two of the nine ballots and I don't want to calculate them all tommorrow. I'm not enjoying the game as much as I should. Anyway, just ignore me.
You won't have to do it all tomorrow, because we fell slightly behind. Since the Final will be 48 hours long, you won't have to post the wrap-up thread until sometime on Monday. So take all weekend.

You'll have mine tomorrow morning.

What happens in the event of a tie? Both go onto the next round?

There are tiebreakers or we could do a match of three. It's up to Phanan. I'd prefer a match of three personally. Which would you prefer?

Hmm... I'd say a tie-breaker because a 3-way match at this stage would be kind of diluted, at least for me.

But who's to say if there is a tie-breaker that the vote tally doesn't change?

Up to you and phanan, really.

A three way semi-final match might be the fairest way seeing how tight this match and the others have been. It is up to Phanan though.

But if your matchup and my matchup both end in ties, then it'll be crazy.

You're right though, 3-way matchups would work.
