i know it. the numbers around here are in 17/58 time.

just wait til ya see how TCE tallies up these things. i look at em, and i feel like i'm watching the discovery of the divine genome, rendered in the matrix. (tell him which one of yers to leave off, no biggie.)

mind ya, that could just be me. numbers and i... we have issyews. one time in college, i took an advanced calculus class by accident. i swear to god. i musta read the course number wrong or sumthing. i sat there, for two straight weeks, gaping. twitching. drooling like a cow stuck in a fighter jet. Fs everywhere. thennn the Fs realllllly started to piss me off. so i decided i was gonna do this thing and prevail. i was gonna be calculobitch. i struggled and struggled, and i still failed the fucquin thing.

i was sooo mad, i took it again, just outta sheer spite. my math wiz brother didn't get to sleep for the entire semester. he was my on-call tutor and punching bag. his influence helped, but my average was teetering over the precipice of formulaic doom, headin into that evil final exam from hell... a three-hour long final. ya know... with questions about how fast jack daniels would flow outta a conical vat if a cat-5 hurricane hit two-thirds of the way thru the seepage, etcetcetc.

god clearly intervened, and i passed that fucquer, by the skin of my damn teeth.

so then i went and switched majors to english lit.*


*actually, it was one crazy brilliant english prof who got me to switch majors... but i tell ya, the gotdamn conical vat played its part.

okay, i actually have 10 songs so far, but one question: can we repeat a group? more than one song from a group? .....or is it strictly one-per?

you can do whatever ya want. as it is a song versus song thing, no one's really gonna know it's a repeat from a person til after the fact. right? i think.

i am confusing myself again. i need to go cook or sumthin.

Rules to prog contests are like the time signatures: they frequently change.

A summary of the current (and hopefully final) rules:

Two groups of 10 to be decided randomly (using the random number function on my calculator which I will do later today). Each player will play every other player in their group (so 9 matches each). The winner of each group will play each other in a grand final.

It doesn't matter if you've already sent 10 songs as I can use one as a substitute in the case of the same song drawn against one another in a match.

When I've got all of the lists or at least enough to get started. So far I've received five from group 2 but just the one from group 1.

i've been working on mine... since i'm a first-timer with any kind of 'cup' around here, i'm a little bit overwhelmed, due to the fact that there are SO MANY CHOICES... my goodness.... but i'll try and speed up the process without compromising my strategy, such as it is...

Enjoy the process, Maryann! One of my favourite aspects of this kind of thing is just the chance to go through music you love and see if it still speaks to you, and if you can get alist together that excites you as well as others.
