Oh, OK. I honestly thought you were joking with the hat thing before. That explains it. Then I blame gravity causing the pieces of paper to fall into the hat the way they did.

I don't see group four as exceptionally bad myself.

By the way, who's in the next rounds? LM, obviously. If I don't have the tracklists of the others yet, I'll download them overnight.

Today's matches are:

Irishteen/Lemonchick vs. LMP
LM vs. me

Then we'll take a break over the weekend so people can listen to some more stuff.

LM/Phanan
Irishteen-Lemonchick/LMP

Or, whatever Phanan just said above.

Yeah. It'd probably be just you and I for some of the early stuff, then a few others would come along for various albums.

Bit of a pain for me, because I really enjoy these Survivor tournaments but it looks like we're moving onto bands I'm not into. I know some Bowie but not that much. And Led Zep, I couldn't give two hoots.

It would give me incentive to download more of their music, however.

Yeah, I'm not really into Bowie that much, so I won't be involved with that one.

Led Zep, on the other hand, I would most certainly do.

Righto. I don't have Irishteen/Lemonchick or LMP, so I'll download those overnight.

Which will be soon, because it's 2:15am here and I'm just about drifting off at the computer.

Yeah, you must have enjoyed the constant bickering and inflammatory speech in the Radiohead survivor, even if you hated the music.

No, I didn't pay it that much attention. Looked in now and then and a few threads brought the lulz. Is it done? If it's had its finals, I've honestly missed them.

What the hell happened with the Radiohead one, anyway?

namkcuR sometimes goes long stretches between rounds, which kinda makes it tough to stay interested. I pretty much gave up on it.

PFan and COBL_04 are trying their best to get me into Bowie. I'll vote on the albums I know, which are Low and Station To Station and maybe Ziggy Stardust but I didn't like it enough to listen a third time.

I am disappointed that it seems we're going to do Led Zep next rather than REM. Maybe I'll dig up the one or two Led Zep albums I downloaded to see if my opinion's changed at all. But REM would've been awesome and had plenty of participation.

We're in the b-side draws still, but there was a thread that received NO replies. I mean, damn. Anyway, I may take over for Nam, but only if it seems as if he's given up on it completely.

Zep wouldn't take that long - only 9 albums plus some obscure stuff.

I'd definitely be up for REM when that happens.

REM definitely would do well.

This is the thing that almost makes me think a PT Survivor would be worth it. I know there are 4-5 of us who'd vote on every album, and various other people who have at least SOME albums and would be motivated to check out more by such a tournament.

Sure, it'd be low-key and we'd probably work out some quick, efficient format to avoid having a bazillion rounds, but it'd be fun.
