Two rather dull lists, A's a little more adventurous.

I was blinded by Spanish pop. :oops:

Sorry, Brian, great damn list.
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

Me too, now I'm out $0.76 :cry:

Good run Brian... but the tasteless ones voted us gone.... BTW- excellent call on Know Your Product, I was going to use that, and then I saw it on your list and yanked it....

Three of my favorite lists are gone. Magilla's, Matty's and now Brian.

As a protest, I may neglect to cast a vote in the finals. :evil:

Leg of lamb wrote:Yeah, bummer of a match-up. This is Holland vs Brazil in the quarter-finals, a 4-3 thriller that'll be the last puff of excitement before all the remaining teams play timidly and go to pens for the rest of the tournament.

However, it's an easy choice for me.

A has been a really fun and eccentric presence throughout the Cup. I like it, quite a lot. The fact that it's picking 'Double Dutch' and 'Demolition Man' at this late stage shows some balls. I reckon it may even go through, which wouldn't be too bad...

... except, for me, it would. And that's not much to do with A really. It's just that it isn't... B. Oh B. You've carried me every step of the way, through the soul, through the sick hip-hop, through the underrated and brilliant Highway 61 Revisited track, through the girl groups, even via the noisier rock picks (which is where we're furthest away from one another). And now you've picked an absolute monster off Illmatic (better than 'NY State of Mind'? Maybe not, but 'Halftime' is definitely in contention and at least it's not the Nas song that it's OK to like), suave Lee Dorsey and one of my all time, drop-everything favourites in 'Blue Moon' (a demonstration in how to plunder the canon if ever there was one). My only beef is that the King Tubby looks mildly like a token selection. This is a list that picks what I like, that departs from the rock/indie path in a dozen different directions, without seeming token.

But it's a very minor quibble. B, I love you. And you're going to go out.


Still stand by everything here.
