Shuffleathon 2008/9 Update
Isn't it about time we caught up with the longest running serial in the world after Coronation Street? Why the hell not?
OK, so I set a nominal deadline of the end of March for the final eight to get their reviews in. I wasn't really expecting anyone to pay me any mind, but whilst I was away, no fewer than three people felt moved to pull their fingers out and get their reviews in..... yay!
First up is the review in from Monogodo of the CD he received from Joe the Troll (a partial hit, I reckon... and, by the looks of it, a really well put together CD). Next is Wombat's review of the CD she received from Ian (you only know one -- maybe two -- Stone Roses song? Man, there's one album I know to - belatedly - get you for your birthday....and "Yes" by McAlmont & Butler is a superb choice by Ian - an excellent song. Ian might have deleted his internet presence, but that looks like a decent CD to me.) Finally we have Charlie's review of Tina's CD - another hit. Apart from not quite being able to believe that Charlie's been hanging around here for all this time and hasn't really heard any Elbow before now, that looks like another well-thought through CD by Tina with some really outstanding choices on there.
Well, well. This is more progress than we've had in weeeeeeeeks. Well done guys, and thanks for playing. At this rate, I might even consider doing another one.
More of the same please, and we might just get this finished before the next one (if there is one) starts.....
So, Battlestar Galactica is over, but in our own little way, we've uncovered the Final Five:- 5 reviews still to go (although Joe tells me that his is underway....):
Joe the Troll
Come on people, together we can finish this thing!

And thank you Mr Toni for your formidable efforts on the Shuffleathon front!ReplyDelete
I am a BAD, BAD person, and there are no excuses (although I will say that the CD I received is a very, very tough call to write about). But it WILL be done, SOON.ReplyDelete
Oh CRAP, the detailed notes which my compiler sent to me are stuck over at The Other Place, and I won't be returning to The Other Place until the weekend after next. Which means that anything that I write before that will be significantly diminished (for reasons that will become apparent once you see the track listing).ReplyDelete
A poor excuse, and I don't think it would stand up in court. So I'd better do the write-up sans notes...
