Okay, good luck with the judging. Looking forward to the album.

Thanks, me too :) so far I've heard a lot of great entries, no lie the spots on the album alone will be 18 tracks and hard to grab due to all the astounding submissions. Good thing I put 4 more spots as the maximum heh.

Welp people...with a heavy heart I say the following carefully as I feel there is a lot of pressure...due to the fact I do not like disappointing people and it does not help my anxiety/asthma problems (which have been acting up lately):

It could be worse, but I finished my reviews so I'm done there, however, the other judges have been busy lately and now I am waiting for their reviews. We have chosen some winners but we are not done yet...it is unfortunate I will need to give the other judges time, I have no choice, and I am not happy, but I am trying to be patient as I respect their schedules...I understand.

I just don't like to keep you guys waiting, but I'm hoping in the following week we will see the results...hang in there guys. But I ask please not to pressure us, I am stressed as it is about this whole ordeal as things came up for them and I'm trying to manage, I do apologize for what has come up.

So do not PM me (as some have asking), as mentioned, I will announce in the next week, PERIOD. I'm sorry guys...really trying here :/

Relax. Just breath in, breath out. Oh, asthma joke. I'm so bad. If it makes any difference I've had asthma for years. It still acts up when I'm near horses or when there are a lot of pollen. Anyway we'll see the results when they're due. It will take some time till the next AIM anyway.

Thanks...appreciate the encouragement. I'll try, I just don't like making people wait, nor do i like waiting. But i shouldnt stress, really nothing I can do about it.

Really? Well ok, thanks, and I hope so. I put a lot of work into this contest.

Yeah it sucks no joke, I've been dealing with this for 8 months, I recently got on steroid pills and my doc wasnt being a good listener so I need to up the dose but he didnt agree but another doc at the care center said otherwise so yeah..im goin' with that guy. Hopefully I can live without my "next to broke" life in a month or two if all works out.

You all keep saying "we" as if I too am in agreement with what you all are saying ... well, I suppose I am in agreement; but to offer my opinion on the matter, Jay, perhaps choosing different judges for the next contest would be a favorable option. The judges don't necessarily have to be your friends or people you know, and having time to judge in the first place qualifies them for the position quite enough for my taste.

But to echo my wonderful colleagues, it's no big deal and we should have no problem with waiting.

This is very insightful, perhaps you are right. The people I chose I feel are very experienced musicians I respect as friends and musicians, I wanted to bring them into this because I wanted them to be a part of this and I'm glad they could be but unfortunately things came up and they got busy had to deal with life stuff, which is understandable just unfortunate.

You're probably right though. I have a couple ideas of who I would want to ask for the next time, but will be months until the next contest.

Thanks, and for the record, 5 hours ago I just made a shocking discovery. It was something in my air purifier that i found while i was dusting, it was blowing my house, I feel my lungs opening up. Not sure if thats all it was, but was definately a part of it, I already feel some relief. I'm throwing that thing out, I got two others running. I'm definately more functional than I was.

Fantastic. Now if only the other two judges would be more functional. (nothing against you two, but the deadline is pretty much here!)

Also, RealFaction - something important to add on to what Bosa said. Your friends aren't necessarily the best choice, and good musicians aren't necessarily good judges of music. If they can give good constructive reviews with good advice for improvement, and show that they are going to give a score to reflect their review, then they're a good judge. Otherwise... meh.

I might have made this mistake as well, but those are still my thoughts on it.

Here's hoping the results will appear soon, and that one particular judge will actually start.

They're good judges just things came up in their schedules :/ nothing i can do really. The majority of people said they'd wait and so I've heard this happens a lot in contests so the best thing is to wait, but I'm going to make sure no matter what happens, THIS WEEK there WILL be results, either way.
