Desert Island VI Album Game: Quarterfinal, Match 4

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the last Quarterfinal for Interference Desert Island VI! The premise of this game is that all of the Interferencers have been stranded on a desert island and we can only take up to 160 minutes of music with us (either as a continuous iPod playlist or two 80 minute CDs or any other format of our choosing). The object is to see which forum member can fit the most musical goodness into these 160 minutes.

The last quarterfinal has bono_212 and phillyfan26 facing off. Below are their playlists.

Robert's Fucking Despair Knows No Geographic Boundaries...I Mean...He Is Upset. So Take A Little Pity On The Guy Why Don't You?

I really don't have much to say about this list. Listening to it makes me extremely happy, that's for sure. I tried not to let current events in my life taint it too much, but, well, that's just not entirely possible, as, I find with music, you listen to the music that fits the mood your in. So, maybe I am semi-attempting to give an explanation for why my list is a little "poppier" than average, but, really, I created something I enjoy, and I hope you all can get a bit of entertainment out of it as well.

Play From Your Fucking Heart

“The world is like a ride at an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it, you think that it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and around and around, it has thrills and chills, and it’s very brightly colored, and it’s very loud, and it’s fun … for a while. But some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: ‘Is this real, or is this just a ride?’ And other people have remembered, and they come back to us. They say, ‘Hey! Don’t worry. Don’t be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride.’ And we … kill those people! But it doesn’t matter, because it’s just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It’s only a choice: no effort, no work, no job, no savings and money. A choice. Right now. Between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourselves off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one. Here’s what you can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride: take all that money we spend on weapons and defense each year, and instead, spend it feeding, clothing, and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.” – Bill Hicks

Fuck.

I almost feel like flipping a coin. These are possibly my two favorites. I'm going with "Robert's Fucking Despair Knows No Geographic Boundaries...I Mean...He Is Upset. So Take A Little Pity On The Guy Why Don't You?"

I had to go with Piffy too. But they're both chock full o' great songs. I guess I just like how his latent racism manifested itself in "segregating" almost all of the black artists' songs.

This is why seeing who voted for what wasn't the best idea.

This is why we can't have nice things.

This is why I blindly vote for YLB, Peef, and GAF although I secretly hate their lists.

At least the Superthreaders are voting on other lists, too, which means, hey, there's no reason why they aren't objectively voting for Ashley's list.

Well, except Reggo. She sort of just voted for Ashley, told her to rock on, and then didn't vote in any other match.

Congrats, Ashley. Good luck next round.
