Cup Comments and News

Postby PENK » 28 Jan 2015, 19:45

Just five ties tonight. Five more were supposed to follow tomorrow, but I've given up on two of the remaining lists so it may have to be just the four. I do have one reserve list that's been sent, but if that's a spare I will enter it into a two-go-through three-way tie. It's only fair to the person who sent it, who has after all made more effort than some people who were actually on the original sign-up list...

Would it be bad form for me to win the cup I organised?

Yes. Please don't.
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

I sort of want to start a thread devoted to heaping scorn on that song....

It's weird roll call when you see it like that. I can see connections in taste between Mike B, Thesiger and John K maybe, but the rest.. :shock:

Jeff K and Strider both had very alt-canon lists. I think that there is a Venn diagram to be drawn using you, Griff, Machuki and Sgt Pepper too.

And I'd probably be right in the middle of it. Maybe this is my year!

Of course. All I need to do is copy and paste songs from Googa's list into everyone else's when I put the ties up. It can't possibly fail!

Just in case people see my rushed voting as something to criticize or see it as me chucking a shitty about how my well crafted list of 8 masterpieces got unfairly blitzed, my mum's had a slight heart attack so I'm focusing on that, so if I don't get to vote again before the end (although I probably should), the worst list won.
