Two great lists and it's a shame one had to lose. Congratulations to the new champ, Thesiger. It's going to be difficult but try not to let the fame go to your head. Special thanks to the Masked Man for organizing it again this year. It was a great year for the BCB Cup even if you assholes voted me out of the competition too early.

Sorry about that :oops:

Anyway congratulation on both winner and runner-up.

If you'd replaced a couple of your weaker tracks with "Ooh La La" and "Lonesome Town" I would've been more enthusiastic! :P

Congratulations nonetheless- it's tough to get very far at all in these things (don't I know it...) but at least your genuine love for your tracks (and Coan's as well) showed through.

And look out for TRGP next year- the only list I would have paused for before voting for my own!

Congratulations, Joe - it was a fine list. And thanks a lot to Andrew who did a great job keeping the thing moving along fluidly and flawlessly.

And thanks to everyone who voted for me and had nice things to say - I was surprised to get this far, altho' of course a little disappointed not to win (that's twice I've made the final only to be dropped right at the end!). I'm happy if I introduced a couple of songs to people - that's one of the most valuable things about this competition, I think.



Fuck yous to follow... :P

Congratulations Joe, although I voted the other way - and whilst I preferred Coan's list I'm very much second-guessing myself now after reading Coan's comments about Cohen!

As you can see, the Cup is more of a champagne bucket, really. But I'll be proud to add my engraved moniker to the roll call of BCB Greats.

*bump*
This ought not be buried under a page of proggery.

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
