How does he do it?

We need to start voting for the worst lists left to make sure he doesn't take it again.

I believe he employs an army of reserachers, mathematicians and private dicks that travel the world scouring our music collections and reporting back. They then produce papers providing potential lists for each stage of the competition and weighted depending on which competitors remain. That or he just makes the lists up himself.

Drip is definitely out and by my reckoning with 4 matches still going you should have 36 names but you only have 34.

I'd just like to point out that all of the NYC'rs are still intact. Brian, Snarfy, and I are still going strong. The chances of the cup staying in the US are looking good, and our fair city is well represented.



Our adopted Welshman sadly passed in this round. That's what you get for going against Ram-Jam last year, Leg of Lamb! ;)

Good luck to those who've made it through. Keep voting and watching those of you who didn't. Now it gets interesting.

Ahhh as well as NYC being intact, so is Paris!



But, yeah, other posters I just meant that the folks that are still in will be scouring your lists to see what kind of musicalnecrophilia we can get away with in order to secure your votes.... so I should mention that grossness is interesting.

The city's victory will be hollow now that I'm out. I was the heart and soul of the five boroughs and, more to the point, the Cup. I even put 'Brooklyn Took It' on my list!

The world's gone mad.

Hey, step off boyo. He's ours now and while we can say whatever the fuck we want about him, you can't. Fact of NY life.
