The oddness/evenness shouldn't matter - we're not assigned in pairs, normally.

what? there's no need for even numbers.
A covers C, C covers B, B covers A. Works for every number of participants.

I'm guessing your list simply got missed. I count 10 lists, there doesn't seem to be an odd number after all.

Perhaps we should just pair you with HInc.

Hey, my apologies for lagging behind on this. It turns out I'm an idiot, and didn't realize that it wasn't necessary to have an even number of participants, and I also missed Josh. Sigh. Thanks for sorting this out.

Hey folks,

To date I've received only one submission, and we've only got a couple of days left. I'm going to extend the deadline to April 2nd, which is the first Monday in April, after which time I'll post what we've got.

Thanks!

Thanks from me too. I keep catching colds and the song I'm covering may or may not have a high note in it (NO SPOILERS) so I appreciate the chance to sing it with (hopefully, at some point) a fully functional voice-box.

Thanks for the extension, I'm procrastinating hard here, but I won't stiff you Niv, feel free to hold mine hostage until I get yours done.

How are we doing? A decent enough number of submissions?

Al's working on it BYD's entry. I believe something should be out of the hopper soon.

Mine's in, though never received a confirmation of receipt. I say publish and be damned!

I have had the song I’m going to cover in an endless loop in my head the whole time but I haven’t had time to work on it. This is the first time I’ve ever needed a deadline extension. Good thing it was extended.

In the past I was always diligent about getting things in on time and just quietly rolled my eyes when everyone else needed more time. Now I’m on the other side of that.

Please wait until at least the new deadline.

Yesterday WAS the new deadline.

I am roughly 40% done, should be (hopefully) ready sometime this week.

Oh, I thought it was the 15th. Well, damn,guess I’m gonna be late this time. Oh well. Given how many side fights I’ve been stiffed on entirely over the years I’m not gonna feel too bad.
