Yeah, I'd love to hear yours soon. I can package mine up and send as soon as I finalize it, too, if you like.
I'd like that.

Not really.

Can I ask, it seems as if there may very well be a LOt of entries in this comp, are they all going to be included, or what happens? Same rules as the first one?

Oh, and I also love the fact that this round has been the most participated in so far by reply-wise, but 70% of it has been for the next game.

No specifics, but here's what you have to look forward to in mine:
  • Classic 60's pop songs
  • Indietastic folk rock
  • 70's jazz rock
  • Fuzzy 90's indie rock
  • And nothing by Muse or Nirvana

When the sign-up sheet reaches 16 contestants (the number we are using for this next game) no more people will be able to join. If you are here within a few hours of the thread going up, you should be okay. If you're not one of the 16...sorry.

Stuff like the emphasis on creativity and art will hopefully weed the number down to those who can actually participate. Hopefully, people make sure they have the time to make something like that.

Sounds good, man.

I wanted to include Muse in mine, but it just didn't fit.

I'm in love with the entire 2nd half of my playlist, I'm trying to tweak the first half though.

I'm up for only doing only a 24 hour final and 3rd place game. I just want to start the next game.
Axver had mentioned, and I agree, that we can just skip the 3rd place game for this competition, as it only involves a few of us. This way, I'll start the final later today and have it go for 48 hours. It will end Saturday morning EST, and then Axver will return within a day or two of that and start the sign-up thread.

As for the number of votes, we could have several people who voted away from the forum this week if they are in the U.S. Quite a few people take time off around the 4th and sometimes they don't bother going on a computer during that time.

I think that the number of votes in the third round prove this. I also think having more than one heat run at the same time has worked well and should continue. It will makes things go faster and keep people interested.

I've been playing around with different ideas for my playlist - still trying to come up with something I like.

Although Muse will be making an appearance on mine this time.

Hopefully my Mac will be up and running before it starts so I'm able to upload everything.

Plug in Baby and Endlessly are the two Muse possibilities for my playlist, especially Plug in Baby.

LMP - You better like your list, because it will be the only songs you hear for the rest of your life.

Unless of course you find a large piece of an outhouse manufactured in bakersfield, and construct a working raft using it as a sail (a la Tom Hanks) And don't forget Wilson!

I'm really nervous about not getting a spot...

Why must Axver be in such a strange time zone? If he makes that thread anytime between 3 and 10 AM, I'm out of luck.

It will take three to four hours for the list to fill up because I think people will read the rules and have to think about it. Making a simple playlist isn't that difficult but making something artistic and creative as well as having to upload it could force many to really pause and consider. If you login by 11 AM EST you'll probably be okay.

Perhaps I'll get up a bit earlier this week (maybe nine or so) so I can keep a look out. Hardly anyone is on between 3 and 7 anyway, so I should be alright if I do that.

My list is in a folder, ID3 tagged, and ready to go, with a list accompanying it containing the whole template for the entry itself (EG: Beatles - "She Loves You" - Past Masters Vol. I) It just needs to be uploaded now.

Getting up early is probably a good idea for everyone.

It seems a lot of playlists are pretty far along. Maybe we could start the game two weeks after the sign-up thread goes up?

Two weeks? Fine with me. The sooner the better. I can't wait to reveal my list in its entirety. I think it has a good shot at being considered the most "fun" list, if nothing else.

Quick question:

At the end of "Debra" by Beck, there's a 7 minute blank spot of nothing followed by a short hidden instrumental. Would it be OK if I cut that out? That track ends my first CD, so I'm not cutting it for a segue...it just seems incredibly unnecessary.
