Mr. Red has informed me that it'll be another 6-12 hours before he will post results.

When I sent that song I wasn't expecting to win really so it's OK.

Yeah that was quite pretentious but I liked it. Also, I think according to the translated Chinese write-up, I did well yet not as much as Ev.

I couldn't get past the first two sentences. :lol

If I didn't get three more points than you from Tyrias and 425 together, I'm pretty sure I'm screwed.

It's not bosk.

It's not Bolsters.

It's not Parama.

IT IS ME IT IS ME

Hahahaha.

And yes I'm telling the truth. You can't believe how hard it was to keep my mouth shut in this thread! I wanted to reply so much... :lol

Anyways, sorry for the delay in posting results, and how concise my write ups usually are. I do tend to get long winded when I speak, so I try to get things concise when I type. Sometimes after reading Tyrias' and 425's write ups I feel somewhat inadequate because my writeups are usually so short. But maybe I'll do better once my roulette starts, which will be VERY soon. It's all ready to go, Bolsters, whenever you give the word btw.

Anyways, onto the songs.

Nekov: Subsignal - The Size Of Light On Earth
I really liked the introduction a lot. That ethereal keyboard sound is one that I LOVE and wish was used more. The tight vocal harmonies are also ones that I enjoy, reminiscent of bands like Queen. I do agree with 425 and Tyrias, while I enjoyed it a lot, it was pleasant, nothing really stood out. It was a solid prog-rock song, but nothing made it make me go WHOA. It was also very repetitive, and nothing was really added to the repetitive nature that made it any more interesting than the first time I heard the keyboard phrase at the beginning of the song. I don't want to be like it sucked though, because it was far from it. It was very good. Just nothing that made it stand out.

Evermind: Joan Baez - Diamonds and Rust
I know a little bit of Joan Baez's music, but not very much. I do really like folk music from the 60s and 70s, and this didn't disappoint at all. This piece was beautiful, emotional, simple, yet complex... I loved it. Folk music sometimes tends to get repetitive, but that can be overshadowed by emotional content and make repetitiveness seem shorter, and this does this perfectly. The synth strings and light organ adds to the emotional content perfectly; almost capturing a light rock/jazz quality that was quite common at the time but fails to be captured in today's singer/songwriter music... I compare some of this to other songs I enjoy from that era, such as Killing Me Softly by Roberta Flack. What a beautiful song.

Sacul: Kashiwa Daisuke - Stella
I'm not writing a poem like Tyrias. So don't expect it.
This piece surprised me. I was thinking within the first two glitchy minutes "DANG IT WHY DIDN'T I JUST SEND SACUL STOCKHAUSEN DURING HIS ROULETTE I WOULD HAVE GOTTEN 5's" but then the glitches stopped and the music began. This music is like a lake or ocean. It comes in waves. Some of it I really enjoyed, some of it I was like does this really need to go on for 3 minutes? Like the extreme minimalistic (and I wouldn't even call it that) piano parts. Yes, it adds to the mystery of the piece, but hearing hte same 4 notes within the course of about 20 seconds without any added ambience can drag on. When that ambience is added layer by layer it starts to pick up and get interesting. And when it's in full throttle the piece really flows. What I REALLY enjoyed was the classical nature the piece incorporated; the cellos are really effective and emotive, and the clarinet was a nice contrast. I also enjoyed when even though the piece got repetitive, the piece stayed interesting because a new instrument would be added above it. I was pleasantly surprised. It was good. It didn't blow me away overall, but I enjoyed it. I would rather it be broken up into movements or something though.

Well there you go. The mystery is revealed. This was fun and I would love to do this again.

I actually had a thought "hey, Mr. Red could be splent" yesterday morning. Haha.

Well, glad you liked my song. I was worried about you, I knew this song could be a perfect match for 425 and Tyrias, but I didn't know what to make of you.

So the question is, did I get 3.5 more points than Sacul or not?

Edit: Oh, and...

Evermind: Joan Baez - Diamonds and Rust
I know a little bit of Joan Baez's music, but not very much.

Nice, because what I've got from the other judges is:

- 425 has Judas Priest in his banned list, but haven't heard their version of Diamonds and Rust
- I didn't ask Tyrias but apparently his mom is cool enough to know Joan Baez
- Bolsters thought that Judas Priest's version was the original version

:facepalm:

I have an idea of who it might be, but then one or two artists on that banned list completely put me off.
Animals As Leaders and TDH threw me off heavily, but at this point I thought it was you too splent :biggrin: so I already know which of the information pieces were an outright lie haha. I think at some point I asked if it was you and Bolsters said no.

There is also the fact Bolsters said that he thinks the judges should be the guys who already ran a roulette. That was my main argument against splent being Mr. Red.

I would've picked some different songs for red rounds if I knew. Though now that I think of it, I unconsciously picked some fogey songs/bands for those... Jethro Tull, Fish and Mark Knopfler. Knopfler's song is recent but it has a very fogey feel to it.

I saw Fletwood Mac and Rush on his list, and instantly knew it'd have to be splent. Also, I was right about it being an old user although not about the inactive part. Yet I've lost my crown, it seems.

No, really, there is a possibility it's not splent... but splent being Mr. Red makes a lot of sense in my opinion.

I kind of toyed with idea to create the fake write-ups and claim I was Mr. Red all along, giving everyone 3/10 and 10/10 for my song - which would've been a twist alright - but if that were true, that would've made this roulette a farce, so that wasn't an option unfortunately. :lol

I must've forgot to post it, but the instant I saw Steely Dan on the banned list, I knew it was Spencer.  Who the hell else would ban Steely Dan?  :lol  Why do you think I asked if Triumph would be usable instantly after you used Magic Power in someone else's roulette.

I mean, splent was only guessed like 5 times probably, and every time I was like "damn, how can we throw them off again" :lol.

Also, I'm really curious who's going to win now. I think it's going to be pretty close between Sacul and Evermind, I think.

You think?

I think I've got 1 point lead from 425, 1.5 points lead from splent and equal score for our songs from you. I'm half a point behind and I'm never participating in anything 425-related ever again. :lol

Anyway, time to sleep. See you all on the flip side tomorrow.

Also, yep, I've completely driven Evermind away... *hides* ... Just remember that overall I've been the meanest judge to Sacul. :lol

Well, if it's indeed a one-point gap between me and Sacul with Nekov in between (something like 9 - 8.5 - 8) then the things I said before this round regarding the tight scoring and impossibility to make out three points in one round unless the competitor majorly screws up (and sending a 36-minutes long instrumental counts towards that in my book) were pretty much on point.

And if I really end up half a point behind Sacul... I'm seriously never participating in anything you're involved in. :lol

Alright, now I'm off for sure. Typing from the phone isn't really convenient.
