Could be wrong here, but shouldn't this post be the "sticky" one at the top of the thread?
 
Posted by mikeythek (Member # 14997) on :
 
How many days/hours per round are the polls open?
 
Posted by Jacek (Member # 1154) on :
 
I either don't know how to or can't alter sticky status, but yes, this should become the new sticky. As for round length, the preliminary ones will close Sunday night; the main ones will go for two days each unless we realize that one will suffice.

Oops, just saw Red's post on the announcement page. I think he'll notice this soon, though, and remedy the situation! 'twould be much appreciated! The 2010 log could be unstickied too, probably.

sticky'd and unsticky'd the appropriate threads.

Alriiight, thanks a lot!

So when I'm voting for Sybil lll in the Chadwick Stokes SVST, do I go by the Let It Go version or the Simmerkane I & the Fall River Sybils version? This is an important distinction, and I'll take my response off the air, thanks.

-Mike
 
Posted by Jacek (Member # 1154) on :
 
Man, I don't even know right now! I thought I had it all figured out by the separation, but then... but then... BUT THEN RED & NEAL & CO. MESSED ME UP (the jerk faces!). By their reasoning, though, which is what I believe we're working by, I think the Fall River Sybils take would apply.

O nitpicking...

Oh wait, response off the air means... unaired? Not on RLT? Shoot. I lose again.

It's what people say when the call a question in to a radio station and they listen to the answer on their radio rather than over the phone. Or something like that... it doesn't really apply here, but it seemed like a good thing to say at the time.

And thanks for answering my question.

Aha!

By the way, I've moved on to Songs from a Room, which is great too. Love the jaw harp, and The Partisan and Tonight Will Be Fine (to name the current favorites, at least) are very great songs!

gang v rash? that's like...the ultimate punishment.
 
Posted by augman09 (Member # 35639) on :
 
CIA vs Dr Ron will be a difficult one for me
 
Posted by Tyler J (Member # 36074) on :
 
Mountain-Adelaide is the interesting one to me. Both near the top of my list and so different from each other.
 
Posted by Jacek (Member # 1154) on :
 
So the thing that I loved most about this random draw is that H.A.C.K.I.N. came up first and Black Welsh Mountain last; and also that no Rabbit Inn Rebellion songs have to face each other in the first round!
 
Posted by Schreibdog (Member # 8812) on :
 
Gang vs rash? CIA vs Skaron? State Inspector vs A&C? These are some crazy match-ups.
 
Posted by redcrayon (Member # 64290) on :
 
Mansin vs. JSC, Bendar vs. Big Man, and Oafk vs. Still and Silent
 
Posted by Neal. (Member # 835) on :
 
Chad writes a lot of good songs, just look at them all. All good, yea..

was gonna comment on that as well, but I think somewhere along the lines Mike told someone that this particular Ocean was a cut from the LIG recording sessions? Or am I way off here...

Jason is correct. So is Neal!

Haha, right! Holy shit. That'd be something.
 
Posted by Schreibdog (Member # 8812) on :
 
I'm not sure they would be able to make it all the way through that set list without most people's heads exploding from the shear awesomeness of it all.

Or Maddog's arms breaking.

I actually considered this when making the list, I assumed 4-5, 9-10, and 13-14 would give him some spacing to make sure he didn't hurt himself or his kit..

Posted by Jacek (Member # 1154) on :
 
1. Rash of Robberies
2. Mountain
3. Mansin Humanity
4. As with Gladness
5. Uncertain

A worthy top five, to say the least.
 
Posted by shua (Member # 1165) on :

Mansin Humanity
Mountain
Uncertain
Time Served
As With Gladness
Wicker Plane
Ill Advised
Gang of Thieves
Benjamin Darling

Thank you, Shua! I was just wondering about that.
 
Posted by red (Member # 10440) on :
 
this was good.

Mansin is always a winner in my heart [Frown]
 
Posted by Connor (Member # 7698) on :
 
Thank you for another good one Jacek. I'm sure it gets tedious keeping up with it.
