Contest #2 Rules and $#!+

Dear Internet,

I'm getting all set to start Contest #2, the grand prize being the His & Hers Guinness Pub Glassware Set which I liberated from an actual pub. Shipping's on me anywhere in the world.

Seeing as how in my youth (Father William replied to his son) most of my Guinness consumption took place amid much loud music and so forth, this contest relates to your MP3 or iPod list.

Write down a list of songs (title & artists, s.v.p.) of, say, a minimum of 20 songs on YOUR list (this is the honor system, so don't make up stuff not actually on your list) and whoever has the most songs in common with my playlist wins. The longer your list, the better your chances. Do not list AUDIO BOOKS. Lurkers get extra credit depending on their lurkitude so far.

Contest ends April 15, 2006.

Void where prohibited, contest winners are responsible for all taxes, licenses, duties, customs charges, processing fees, court costs, legal expenses and providing the Guinness stout for the glasses.

Off you go!

-J.

    I'm thinking I should recuse myself from this one, since it has already been demonstrated that we have similar (horrific, according to Poppy) taste in music.

    And also, the last thing I need on my record is "receiving stolen goods". Again.

    Ah, but you get no lurker points at all, so even if you got a 100% matchup, someone like Halloweenlover could barge in and win with, like 4 songs in common.

    Oh well fine, then. I'll just sit over here quietly like the chopped livah I am.

    AND DON'T GO all Tonya Harding on the new kids, either.

    The thought never crossed my mind until YOU brought it up.

    Besides, I'm with Badger on the "receiving stolen goods."

    SL, sitting in the chopped livah section with Badger. We're having fun, so there!

    I don't have a MP3 player or an iPod, just a satellite radio.

    such is the fate of one who reists the electronic music hegemony.

    Jujube,

    Wait.

    You say you resist such hegemony, BUT aren't YOU the one who is at the mercy of whatever these people want you to hear?

    In your case, I'll issue a dispensation. You may use whatever list you WOULD have had had you joined (music playbackwise) the 21st C.

    yo, Jokester. I have a portable satellite radio. it's not like I live in a cave or something (duh--I couldn't get any reception if I did). over any given hour I have more music and other programming available to me than any of you mPipod3 people.

    don't worry though--I'll be there to welcome y'all to the 22nd century once you make it there.
