Before I bury myself completely in the beautiful drudgery of compiling the Earworms of the Year 2008 (you should see my spreadsheet..... I always knew there was a good reason for coming into work at this time of year), I thought that perhaps there was time for one final shuffleathon update before the end of the year.
Astronaut's review is in (yay!), Mike's spanish language only CD has arrived from Mexico (oooh!) and Monogodo's CD has arrived but it sadly unplayable as the disc has cracked in the post (can we have a resend please, if it's not too much trouble?). Other than that, things are ticking along nicely and almost all of the CDs have now been put out into the post. There's still a few days before my nominal target of getting all outward CDs sent on before the end of the year, so if all stragglers could make an extra-special effort, then that would no doubt be much appreciated by the patient recipients of their mixes.
As always, any updates should be sent to the email address in my profile - be that CDs sent, received or reviewed.
Um. Other than that, Happy New Year to you all. I'll be back after the Earworms of the Year festival of pointless statistics and lists with more of the same nonsense in 2009.

As I keep forgetting to mention this year, Shuffleathon is based upon an original concept by the lovely YokoSpungeon.... an all round good-egg and surely a leading candidate for 2008's "New Mum of the Year" title?
HNY everyone. Can we put Slade back to bed for another year now?
The top 10 countdown at the Auditorium continues....
The number 4s include White Denim, Britney Spears and Neil Diamond.
and the number 3s feature albums by Coldplay, Kings of Leon and Flight of the Conchords.
Between LB, bedshaped and me, we've only had one album on our lists in common so far (Coldplay was picked by two of us). Can you guess who picked what out of this lot? Not as obvious as some of our choices so far.....
