Willem Dafoe absolutely kills me.

He's a great dramatic and comedic actor, plus he's one of the ugliest people I have ever seen, not that there's anything wrong with that.

Interference likes eating my posts.

In response to me getting into the semis, yeah, I am really suprised at that.

For this poll, I'll vote for GibsonGirl, because I think it's really well structured and just generally great.

And Screwtape, did you know my list was made in less than ten minutes?

I'm not that surprised. Mood and flow seem to come through effortlessly in your playlists. By the way are you planning to participate in the next game?

I think with the groups we should have one with only newcomers or people who didn’t go very far in the previous games. Then we can determine who is in each of the other three groups by a seeding according to how a person finished in the last game.

For example (suggesting these people had spots)...

LMP=Group 1 U2VF=Group 2 Axver=Group 3

Then we would take the next highest finishers and seed the highest in Group 3 and the lowest in Group 1.

Bono’s Shades =Group 1 XHendrix24=Group 2 Lancemc=Group 3

Then the next three...

LJT=Group 1 Screwtape=Group 2 Gibsongirl=Group 3

Then the final three...

Lara Mullen=Group 1 Bono_man2002= Group 2 FitzChivalry=Group 3

Group 1-LMP, Bono’s Shades, LJT, Lara Mullen
Group 2-U2VF, XHendrix, Screwtape, Bono-man2002
Group 3-Axver, Lancemc, Gibsongirl, FitzChivalry
Group 4- Newcomers…

Top 2 from each group advance to quarterfinals.

Would anyone object to that?

I like that. It at least guarantees a shot of someone new winning.

Yeah, I was also thinking that it might lead to a lot more tight matches. Looking at those example groups, each match in group 3 would be really tight. Could you imagine a group with Lancemc, Fitz, Axver and GG?

Just decided. I am waiting until the next game. Not enough time.

No, I'm going to give other people a go, I've been in the last three games.

I have no idea. I didn't think I could beat GG, but I didn't think I'd get killed as badly as I have. Oh well.

I've been thinking about Desert Island III lately, and now I'm having second thoughts about a couple of things.

1. We had decided to lower the amount of people to 16 so the game wouldn't take forever, but I'm wondering if that's really necessary now. The reason I say this is because towards the end of Prog Island, I started running more than one heat simultaneously, and it seemed to work very well. The game moved MUCH faster that way. By doing all heats for a round at the same time, it would eliminate the need to reduce the amount of people involved. You could probably do four groups of 6 really quickly that way.

2. There was some discussion that we should increase the time from 160 minutes to 240 minutes, like with Prog Island. Initially I thought 240 minutes might be overkill, but now I'm wondering if the increase time would be better. Imagine the possibilities of stretching out for a playlist like that.

But then I think nobody would have enough time to listen to everything, especially if we increased the number of people involved.

I'm just throwing this out there for people to comment on. I know Axver was definitely in favor of 240 minutes, but the majority had overruled him. Has anyone else changed their minds on that one? And what do you think about the number of people involved if we run heats simultaneously? Feedback please!

What about IMPy?

Keep the playlist length as it is, because it was daunting to listen to 240 minutes of prog, at least for me. Imagine listening to 15 other people's 240 minute lists. Yeah, that'd be rough.

I do like the increase in competitors if the heats run at the same time though.

I love in Spiderman when he's just sitting up in his room laughing his ass off as the Goblin, and Harry walks in and hears him laughing like that. Just sitting upstairs laughing. That kills me.

That's the apex of his comedy. Then I remember he was in that awful Nosferatu remake and laugh some more.

LMP, I'm downloading your playlist now. If the rest of the playlists are anything like ours this game will be the pinnacle of awesome.

I really hope IMP gets in the game. His playlist was so good last time.

I think the original 240 minute limit is best. As for the number of contestants, I feel that 4 groups of 4 is perfect.

I suppose it has to be thrown out there so maybe 4 groups of 5. It would allow 20 total people but it would extend the length of the tournament. I'm not in favor of it but I suppose if the interest is great enough it is something to consider. My fear is that as we add more playlists that the chance of mediocre matchups rises.

I had so much fun tinkering with photoshop making my playlist title picture.

16-20 people is the perfect amount.

You know how I feel about the time limits...240 is an impossible task to really listen to and it'll weigh things down.

I'll be upping my playlist in just a minute, which means you'll get my playlist sometime later this evening, Screwtape.
