Alright, that's cool. You've got until the 9th of May, but the sooner, the better.

And this means there is ONE PLACE LEFT. First come, first served.

Thus far, Liam and I have received tracklistings from:

- LJT
- MacPhistoPT
- hippy
- LemonMacPhisto
- inmyplace13

If you have submitted a tracklisting to Liam and you aren't one of the aforementioned five, it's because he hasn't told me he got a tracklisting from you. If you have submitted a tracklisting to me and you aren't one of the aforementioned five, then, uh ... tell me and I'll check my e-mails/PMs again to make sure I haven't overlooked it. Or you can just resend it.

Who's going to claim the one remaining place?

3 question essential to this contest:

This island we're stuck on, is there beer, or rum, or giant cannabis plants? Are we having island parties with these 2 cds?

Is there sex on this island? Are we all naked, sweating, glistening in the sun, following our animal instincts and having sex with Ginger or Mary Anne by the lagoon?

Or are we trapped, no food, no weapons, no hope of rescue, chased by cannibals, looking forward only to death?

I need to know this.

I got dibs on Brooke Shields from Blue Lagoon.

Hopefully there will be no Others or Wilson on this island.

The island is bland, dull, and lifeless. The only way to tell apart the sand and the rocks is by standing on them and noting the texture, as they are both the same dismal shade of grey. In fact, the sand is pretty hard and can be easily mistaken for rock. The surrounding water is always calm. Never a ripple. Clouds blot out the sun all day and their reflection gives the water a featureless dull surface. It's like England without the rain.

All of Interference had the misfortune to be marooned on the island. We were flying to the ultimate U2 concert (to feature something for everyone, even GibsonGirl ) when our plane disintegrated in midair. Luckily, we were all wearing parachutes and floated safely down to this island. Liam had the good sense to have a CD player in his possession, but most other belongings were lost. The CD player is thus our sole source of pleasure. Food comes from the fish and whales that regularly beach themselves on the island, as they are so depressed to be swimming near such a bland island that they feel the need to commit suicide. Water comes from a spring located in the least depressing corner of the island.

I suppose you could find pleasure with your fellow Interferencers if you fancy them and have no qualms about the stark lack of privacy caused by so many people being packed onto such a small island. There's a total lack of alcohol, though. Thankfully no cannibals. As I said, the CD player is really the only source of pleasure besides what you may be doing with your fellow Interferencers. You can't even go for a swim, because the ocean is infested with man-eating pirahnas. We do happen to have 2 CDs to play in the CD player. This poll shall determine the contents. We need the 160 minutes to be packed with the best musical goodness possible, just so that we all don't go mad. The most amazing, awesome music ever, something to keep us sane until we get off the island. God has chosen to exist for the purposes of divinely transferring the selected 160 minutes of musical bliss and salvation to the 2 CDs.

I really want to see your lists guys...
My list sucks but at least I was honest, at the moment, those would be the songs I'd like to hear for the rest of my life :P

That was the point of the mix... I was honest as well. It's music that means the most to me

Once Liam and I have received everyone's lists, we will organise the seeding and post both the tournament schedule and the sixteen tracklists.

How strict are you guys going to be about the total running time of each disc? I mean, if I submit an 81 minute disc and an 84 minute disc, will they be disqualified?
