Not yet.

Judging from what I've heard so far, I think that both of us are going to do very well in this competition. If we don't, the system is flawed.

Definitely.

I'll finish listening to yours tonight and report back tomorrow, cap'n.

Very good. I'll do the same.

And, of course, I'll find some time in my extremely hectic summertime schedule to give Screwtape's a listen.

The only song on the 2nd disc I didn't like was the My Bloody Valentine song, everything else was gold, Jerry. Gold!

I guess that one is just a matter of taste. You either love or hate MBV. I just thought it fit well between I Was A Lover and Casimir Pulaski Day.

No comment on your list until I completely finish it.

It was a good fit between those two songs, I just didn't like it that much.

Cool

Holy crap I've got a lot to catch up on. Remind me to never go anywhere without much Internet access for nine days ever again.

Desert Island sign-up thread will be soonish. I tested my tracklist in New Zealand and it worked perfectly. Obscure as hell for the most part though!

Welcome back Axver!

You really have missed a lot. Three playlists are already finished. I can't wait to hear yours. By the way, check your e-mail.

Obscure and prog-tastic?

Glad you're back.

Actually, it's not as prog as you'd expect from me. However, that's due to its original theme.

The album has now evolved into something insanely complex. There is an overall purpose, a broad theme, a multi-faceted concept with a vague "ending", and more. I never quite intended for it to be that way, but everything fell into place so incredibly perfectly.

One section of the tracklist is a tribute to my hometown. I was there yesterday for the first time in over five years. I listened to the tracklist as I left on the train, and as it climbed up Paekakariki Hill and I caught my last glimpse of Kapiti Island glistening in the sunset, Neil Finn sung "do you climb into space, to the world where you live?" It was perfect. Then I listened to The Edge's Rowena's Theme as we pulled out of Muri station and I realised I may not see the Kapiti Coast again for a long time. It was even more perfect. At that point, I was convinced that my tracklist is the best I've made and shouldn't be altered.

Listening to the bleaker portion this morning on the plane over the Tasman in the 6am dark, with just a faint hint of dawn on the horizon, was an incredible experience. REM's Feeling Gravity's Pull as we flew over and away from the blackened Cook Strait was fucking creepy.

OK, I'm looking at doing the Desert Island III thread, but I want to know who's definitely in already so I can reserve spots. THIS IS ONLY FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY IN AND NOT FOR NEW SIGNUPS!

I already have myself, phanan, Screwtape, GG, and LMP. Anyone else?

And for the record, the time limit will be 160 minutes and there will be 20 contestants.

I haven't checked this thread in a while. I didn't expect to win by so much. Phanan's playlist is incredible. I honestly expected it would be much closer.

Thanks to everyone who voted, and thanks to everyone who organised the competition!

Me too. I sent my entry to Screwtape already.
