All right, we’re into the Sweet Sixteen!  What did we learn from Round 1?  Well, I learned that folks REALLY like Tommy!  All 4 Tommy albums are still alive while less than half of Paul’s solo stuff survived.  Here’s the updated bracket (right click or control click to embiggen):

Bracket Round 2And here’s the link to the new poll:

Vote here!

The poll is open now through end of day Tuesday (Isn’t something else also happening Tuesday?)

Aaaaah! i was so busy watching the Open Season v. Sorry Ma matchup that I totally missed Suicaine and Mono dropping out.

What is wrong with you people?

Is this a trick question?

That polling site is a joke. I was just able to vote 10 times… and based on the # of votes already cast and the generally one-sided results in each contest, I suspect I’m not the only one who did this.

“That polling site is a joke. I was just able to vote 10 times… and based on the # of votes already cast and the generally one-sided results in each contest, I suspect I’m not the only one who did this.”

Yeah, I was sort of hoping that people would conduct themselves via the honor system and only vote once, but when the stakes are this high I guess that’s too much to ask. However, I think I’ve found a better poll site to use for this, so I’m thinking about putting this round on hold until the new poll is up. With a couple possible exceptions round 1 probably would have come out the same even with a one man one vote system so I’m not concerned about that, but now we’re in the big time. What does everybody say? Kill the voting and get a more fair setup or just screw it and keep going?

how about we just screw it as this is simply a silly diversion? in the meantime, go vote again for your favorites!

I think the stakes are too high to rely on the honor system

I’m with Jake on this one.

With Mono, Folker and S/G eliminated I question if the results would have been the same with one wo/man, one vote rules. Therefore, I’m note sure about changing the rules midway through the contest.

Besides, it will always boil down to Let It Be, Tim, PTMM, and miscellaneous when it gets to the final 4.
