I think you took me more literally than I intended. :)

Original Flava, not Total Request, Octothorpe is in. I am itching to record a song, even if it's a cover. And Mad Dog will be in town in a few weeks...

I'd like to be in, whether we get to pick from back catalog, or have songs assigned.

Just to clarify (since Spud and iVeg mentioned it), this will be Original Flava, not Total Request.

Okay, signups are now CLOSED. Assignment emails will go out this evening.

jb, were you intending to sign up or were you just snarking in this thread? Let me know before this evening if you want to get added to the list. :)

Assignments have been sent out. Hopefully I didn't screw up and assign anyone to cover themselves. And hopefully I didn't miss someone signing up!

Entries are due March 21, 2016.

Got mine, thanks! Could you maybe update your first post in this thread so that it lists everybody who is in and then maybe also includes the links when the fight is announced? Just so it's easy to find the official links? Thanks!

Fluffy - Do you want us to email the songs, post them in this thread, or send them to you as PM?

I will repeat what I said in the PM here, for easy reference:
Once you are happy with your rendition, you may submit it by either:
  1. Attaching it as an MP3 to a private message on the forum (PREFERRED)
  2. Attaching it to an email sent to fluffy[at]beesbuzz[dot]biz
  3. Uploading it somewhere to the web and emailing or PMing me the link (LEAST RECOMMENDED)
  4. Take a time machine into the past and bury it at the specified coordinates (burial coordinates will be provided via entangled p-brane on September 26, 2193)
You must be happy with your rendition by Monday, March 21, 2016.
I should have been more specific that for option 1 it should be a PM to me. :)

And the hardest part seems to be not listening to the covers as they come in.

Thanks, Paco. Reminder that the deadline will have been in a week from tomorrow except that it's probably gonna get extended because I haven't even started on mine yet and don't have access to a studio for the next week.

I've got Logic and an iPad, and I guess this cellphone headset is Good Enough for recording vocals (or maybe Fred and Samantha can make another appearance).

So, I was so busy that I couldn't even find the time to post the following message:
Just a friendly reminder that we are [N] days away from the date on which we decide how far to extend the deadline. Get those songs and/or excuses in!
So how about two more weeks? April 4?
