I have to recant my statement about the Steve vs. Troll battle. I'm undecided (my vote doesn't count anyway) because after thinking about the "recycled" line, I can kind of see how that would work in his favor to bring that "joke" back up again this year. It's difficult to explain, but depending on how it was recycled, I can understand the "why" of it.

Stay up,

if i recycled anything it was entirely unintentional. i haven't listened to any of the battles from last year in awhile, so i dunno from which track i supposedly stole from. all i know is *if* i were set on biting lyrics then Exceptid would be like... last on my list of people to bite from. i remember him mainly for having a lot of energy on the mic while barely bothering to rhyme anything. so maybe i took some performance elements just by being a lil more amped-sounding... but looking to him to steal lines? hahahahaha no

anyway its difficult to make harder-hitting/more personal punchlines when your opponent is literally a nobody on the site (no audio/flash/art submissions, no BBS posts, no 'favorites', no nothing) and all you have to work with is his username and his voice. whereas if people want to get cut-throat with me, there's plenty of material to draw from.

also "both" my verses were written as one and meant to be my first 16, so i literally responded to nothing he said. the only thing i changed after the whole 'bars vs time' debate was the beginning of the 9th line, so if anything its my fault for not totally re-writing the last half to be a direct reply.

I did the same thing, wrote for 16 bars before the time thing... Then just split what I wrote and changed like 2 lines and I was done. I wish I re-wrote my second half too, to be more direct, but I didnt think it was bad either way.

I really regret missing the hype track deadline, haha, there's some great shit on here, really wish I could have competed. Oh well, I suppose there's always next year?

Unless someone makes another battle bracket after this one is over.

See, both Gas and I wanted to start with 16s, so we just did that. Surprised nobody else did that

I specifically requested that people not do that.

If you want to MC, the Tag Team event is probably your best bet. Find a good producer and get at it!

Red, when you said MindChamber was doing a frontpage post i thought you meant Site News... A News Post couldn't have done much for traffic.

Well, Red, see, I read the thing, and it said so and so seconds 16 bars or whatever and I was like whatever I'm gonna do 16 bars and TehSlapHappy did 16 too so I just did 16. After it all I went back and looked and you was saying more time-wise and shit I was like ah shit oh well.

Yeah, that was my bad. I put down the time for every track but forgot to update go back and update where I said 16. Someday this competition will go off without a hitch...

But on a bright note, most of the 16 tracks are a good length and it doesn't take forever to listen to and judge them all. I am glad we did shorter tracks for the first round. That and there's a lot of good battles, so I'm happy.

PiGPEN, usually he uses his front page news post, which puts it in the top left Site News column, and those posts usually get 100-200 replies. It looks like he used up his frontpage post earlier so he couldn't do it for this one. He'll do it with one of the later rounds. Four people have already PM'd me to judge after his post though, so we're gettin somethin.
