Greatly enjoyed Round I.

The absolute stellar selection has been that Frankie Valli. Being too young * cough*, not Northern, and lacking soul, it's new to me and I can't stop listening to it. Whoever picked it has my most earnest and eternal love.

* Gulp * I can do, if that helps. It would be chock-full of stuff I love (ie: complete and utter toss).

Ok; it's the work of ooh- ten minutes. I'll send it across. Don't be appalled... :shock: ( Phil already is )

Great work, Polishgirl, welcome!

You're the perfect replacement for hatzy - like him, I give you almost zero chance of winning this thing; and unlike him, your selections are unlikely to include great lashings of fiddles.

Win-win!

After hearing my selection, I suspect Phil is taking advice from a divorce lawyer...

So Dave/Hatz is out of the Cup, his place in the Dr. Who-group has been taken by Polishgirl!

You told me to send by Wednesday (didn't specify a time), it's Wednesday, and I just sent it. I call foul.

Oh well, your loss.

Though I do appreciate all the panicked "ARE YOU OK???" messages. Because of course it's so out of character for me to be late with stuff like this. :lol:

How many Cups have I run where I made it clear that I live in Australia and the time there is far ahead of anyone else?
I got your FB-message and sent back a reply that one track for round 2 was sufficient for now- hell, I even redid the draw so I could give you the first round bye!
Life catches up with all of us at various times and I wasn't at all angry about it, after all it is just a bit of fun. But you had plenty of time to give me at least one track.

But I have your list now so here's what I am going to do. You will replace me in the Happy Days-group- as I had the first round bye there I will cancel the tie where I had a song in (Match 3), replace it with your selection instead and restart that one.

Your loss as to all the other gems I had to my disposal. You better win this motherfucker now.

Make him play, but give him the rest of my list instead. That'll teach him.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

I'm aware it's ultimately my fault. I wasn't mad either and hope I was being lighthearted in my own defense (or defensiveness).

You really don't have to give your place over to me; I'd feel bad about that. I also think, as usual, there's no way in hell I'll even come close to winning. I never do, except for that one time when Gash cheated.

It's OK Dave. I've seen what some of these cloth-ears have done to my Sandy Denny-pick which I love unreservedly....you have by far a better chance to win than I would.

Fair enough..I'm just impatient. :)
I can see you've had a demanding time of things, but Hatz has no excuse ..sitting around in the Californian sunshine by his swimming pool, smoking pot and listening to one of his servants play the fiddle!


Just saw this. Servants. Hah! Swimming! Also hah!

The other part is true, but not as much as it used to be. :lol:
