I will play again, but won't submit as many guesses as I previously did.

I just don't want to spoil the fun for anyone. To me it wouldn't seem right to win two contests in a row, because that way I'm just being a poor sport.

heh so you think your all that eh'? your on buddy lol tongue.gif  laugh.gif if I have time!!  sad.gif

I'm not saying that I'm 'all that'. I'm just taking it as a precaution.

Yes. The 'foot apparel' was good. Some of The Trees was missing, but other than that, good.

Just on a side note about the difficulty of the last one, I intentionally made it INSANLY easy.  I knew that it would be finished within a matter of hours when I had put it up.  The problem with the previous contests I had made seemed like I had made them too difficult and it turned almost everyone except a handful of players away.  So in order to try to attract an audience, I made it more accessable to people who wouldnt otherwise think they had a chance at doing this.  Hopefully now people realize that if they listen to the thing and dont give up after 1 or 2 listen-throughs, that they can actually get this thing.  I dont feel any longer that it needs to be made super-easy to draw attention, it seems like it has finally generated the attention it needs to work.

Therefore, dont expect this next one to be solved in a day, you will get your chance to guess in Ricky  wink.gif

Hey, BB&B long time no see...

I think he means public answers.  It sure would make the contest longer, but it would be a lot easier for Moon.

We should try it this way once & see how well it works.  I too missed out last time becuase it went so fast.

Hello Digital Man.
I remember about a year ago when RushRevisited hosted the first finals
(the winners of contests one through five would compete in the finals).
The contestants would PM their answers to RushRevisited.
I ended up winning that contest, by sending too many PMs.
I feel that I disrespected RushRevisited, 1-0-0-1-0-0-1, GhostGirl, daveyt,
and anyone else involved.

So, again I am sorry and hope that I can be forgiven.

Definatly not dude, you were the one that really pushed me last year to try to win these contests.  I remember walking to work and thinking in my head about what the clip sounded like, what timeperiod of Rush's career could the sound that was in that clip be from, what instruments were being used at that part.  Lol, that was great fun.  I hope you stick around for these things and teach these new guys how a real clip game is played biggrin.gif

Phone conversation I just had with my wife Sarah..  

Sarah:  So what do you have planned for Valentines this weekend?

Schro:  This year is going to be special, baby.   wink.gif

Sarah:  Ooh, I can't wait!!  What are we doing?  wub.gif

Schro:  Well, you know that rush forum I've been going to every day now?

Sarah:  Uh, yes, but what would that..

Schro:  Glad you asked!  You see, there's this guy Moonraker who's famous for these contests where he takes an audio clip with 10 laser-fast segments from 10 Rush songs.

Sarah:  I see, but what could that possibly have to do with..

Schro:  Simple!  Everyone who's anyone on the forum tries to see who can match the songs to the clips first.  Moonraker will even tell you how many you got right when you guess.  So there's a strategy element going on here as well.  Plus, this one's going to be extra hard - we're talking days to solve.

Sarah:  And..?

Schro:  So this will be our Valentines gift to each other!  Think about it baby.  The entire weekend snuggling on the couch listening to the same sub-seconds clips, over and over.  Then running up to the den every now and then to put in our latest guess!  Before the weekend's over, we'll have listened to every Rush song in the catalog hundreds of times!!  Kickoff is Friday night at 8 o'clock - I get goosebumps just thinking about it!

Sarah:  You gotta be kidding..

Schro:  And to top it all off, guess what we can win?!

Sarah:  A new surround sound system?

Schro:  Better!  A Rush Forum T-shirt!!  Plus, the undying respect of TheRushForum!!   laugh.gif

Sarah:  (gasp)

Schro:  That was my reaction too baby!  Now, I'll get some gourmet coffee on the way home from work, and you tidy up the place a bit so we'll have ample room to work in, and this'll be a weekend we'll never forget!!

(click)

Schro:  Sarah..?

Schro:  Pookums..?

Schro:  Where'd ya go?

Hey BB&B  we have "The Camera Eye" game.  Guess the lyric from the pic.  I remember you used to play that & were quite good at it.  Come give it a shot.

Thanks Digital Man.  I will go on over to "The Camera Eye" game.
