Re: Nur Ein XII - Round One

Currently: fearing wading through 20 average songs to find the gem ;)

In other words: stop talking, start making it even better!

Re: Nur Ein XII

Speaking for myself (as I clearly love to do) I personally wouldn't look at such a place. I've said in many threads over many years, if you feel the need to explain your motivation outside of the song, then you've already failed at writing the song. That said, it's just my opinion and I have no prob...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Zero

Chumpy/Jerkatorium, we live in a subjective universe, there is no such thing as objective truth; unless you want to get into a tedious long-winded discussion about the merits of different interpretations of post-modernism (which I am more than happy to do, of course), I think you've answered your ow...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Zero

Also, not speaking on behalf of any judge but me (though I imagine they'd agree) - congratulations, Merisan! In a field of very good songs (best round zero I remember), yours was pretty much the only one we all agreed on (as evidenced by the scores). (And me saying this isn't even courts mandated :) )

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Zero

Don't know which judge you mean but I know there's another set of reviews out there waiting to be posted. For everyone's info, the judges this year can only guarantee one set of judges' reviews each round. Obviously we aim for a full set each time but the others are busy, busy folk and are already g...

Re: Nur Ein XII

Dear Nur Ein competitors (and other interested parties) - the judges have been deliberating over the impact of 20 participants rather than 25, at this stage of the contest, particularly as it affects eliminations. To get the balance right and ensure the fairest chance to everyone, we have decided to...

W.A.I.L. I.A.A.J. I.A.A.C. Scoring will follow tomorrow, so feel free to tell me in the meanwhile what a C I am, if winning Round Zero matters to you (it offers no immunity). 73 - Pretty. Fine. Pretty fine. Sweet little backwards solo. Doesn't outstay its welcome. Fair to middling overall because I...

Re: Themesong Fight 2017

Thanks, Ken. The truth hurts :) Though, for the record, I've never put cat-noises on a song and harmonicas are evil. Rest, spot on.

Re: Nur Ein XII

So we're all on the same page? It's making sure that the dates / times reflect the end of Sunday / Monday in each case, not the start? If so, I'll have a word and I'm sure we can put this right before the due deadline for round zero. Or if, as wouldn't be the first time, I am well off, please do spe...

Re: Nur Ein XII

Ooohhhhh!! Right! It all becomes clear. yeah, I think the intention is midnight on Sunday / Monday each case, not 0:01am on those days. Sorry for any confusion on behalf of the overpaid team; and as I am the crappy idiot who is the go-between, I'm making an executive decision to make it thus, for th...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Zero

Ah crap. Ah, well. Too late to change it now. 80 odd challenges on, I think we can forgive ourselves. Maybe that's the theme of XII :) Also, I would point out that the "Unnatural Disaster" challenge was "the song must include use of backwards recording". If you can't see the &quo...

Re: Nur Ein XII

Hi Jerky, So I'm looking at your attachment and only seeing Sundays and Mondays ... is it a date thing (i.e. round 4, May 14 is a Saturday not a Sunday)? I am not being rude, I'm just trying to get my head round what you're saying. I can't speak for the NE Hive Mind but I would say go with the Sunda...

Jumping in, as I'm wont to do - There are five hats hanging in the judge-cave (judge-hole?). That'd be me, Heuristics Inc, Spintown, Andy Balham and Manhattan Glutton ... (co-incidentally also the best boy-band line up ever)
