Too late to join?  I have zero time for this, but might give it a crack.

So reading the file sending criteria, you won't accept wma or anything under 320k for mp3?

Hell yeah, glad to see ya!  We'll both be out by Wednesday.   :lol  I'm just sending Spotify.  I've down-ripped my library to 192kb or 256kb, so won't be sending .mp3s.

Question... is your goal with this Roulette to get new music and then explore those artists, or just get some excellent music?  I ask, because I'm debating on sending a fantastic song from a (imo) mediocre artist.... or at least, I doubt the artists discography would be something that you'd enjoy as a whole, but there are a couple of tracks worth submitting.
That's a word salad - and take it from me, I know word salad

There's still time!

I'd rather have 320k mp3s, but since this seems to be a bit of a problem for some, I'll change the criteria a bit. Now, anything above or including 192k is accepted.

I'd rather get songs from artists whose discography I could explore and like beyond a couple of songs, so yeah, the goal here is the former.

I'll send mine in a few hours.

Are people sending in two submissions? My understanding that we send only the first (consequence-free) elimination round submission to test the waters, and THEN after the results of that, we'll submit the actual elimination round.

Ariich is a freak, or somehow has more hours in the day than everyone else.

Only Parama because he believes he'll get cut and nobody would send the tracks he sent anyways  :lol . But you got it right, only one song by now.

I'm such a noob.  :lol Mine's uploading and I'll send it in a minute.

EDIT: This is way more agonizing than I thought, and I think the longer I sweat over a choice without sending it off right away, the more I'm going to regret sending it.  :lol

thanks for the invite Sacul. I haven't participated in one of these in many years, and I'm not sure I have time for it.

There's a lot of others already playing, so I imagine you'll receive a lot of great suggestions  :)

I'm probably going to get a 2/5. I should've just sent the 16 minute Rhapsody of Fire song.  :rollin

Nice, got 12 submissions so far, keep them coming so we can start some sick hangmanen  :metal

That's why I'd also like to present you with DTForums' Unofficial Hangmanen 2000, a simple Python script I've been working on for the past two days, to help with our addiction. It's far from complete, documentation is half-arsed, and it's only shell-based, but it's a beginning. Feel free to leave feedback.
