And I'm guessing the use of Porcupine Tree by phanan and I has influenced the inclusion of more PT with every passing tournament.
Heheh... you PT pusher, you.

Typical... not using iTunes anymore, cos it refused to find one of the bands I wanted to use. Of course, I'm reconsidering that track now... *argh*

Hah, are we getting you a little hooked on here too?

After my drunkposting last night, where I drank over a bottle of wine and barely got drunk, was sobering up and hardly tipsy by the time I went to bed, and have no hangover, there's been a suggestion that you and I need to have a drink-off to see who gets the least drunk!

The basic premise is that contestants submit custom tracklists that fit a set of rules - only one song per artist, no longer than 160 minutes total (we're thinking of revising this down once the next tournament is complete), etc. They're uploaded so everybody can listen. Then they're matched up in a series of polls to determine which is most popular. Our current format is that there will be 16 or 20 contestants divided into four groups, where each tracklist competes against all the other tracklists in the group, then the two most successful from each group go on to the quarter finals. It's then sudden death from the quarters, through the semis, to the final.

That's pretty rad. I'll have to keep my eye/ears out for the next one.
