Just a reminder: submissions for the 2011 ok-cleek.com Readers' Favorite Record Poll are open, for the next three days.
I'll be closing submissions, so voting can begin, on October 1st. That's this Saturday. Three days left!
Don't miss out! It's the chance of a lifetime! All the joys of making a list, plus filling out a web form (plenty of opportunity for copy-paste action, there!) and the chance to vote your own picks to the top! Good times! Precious memory possibilities!
Done! That was not easy. I got like 5 right off the bat and then struggled with the next 5. And I just spent an hour while watching football going back and forth on that last one. What surprises me the most is I think I barely have anything previous to like 1979 and nothing newer than 1997. My “Best Albums” list would be much different and more diverse.
My submissions were kind of sweary. Don’t let my mum hear them, okay?
I can vouch for the satisfaction that filling in this web form provided. 10 was a nice number because it allowed me to list the 7 or so records that by all means had to go in there and then flip a couple of coins for runner-up spots.
I just picked the records thatmake me smile the broadest when they come up on my shuffle. Lots of good stuff
if anyone wants to play with the vote form, using dummy records:
B5 resonates so much more than B4 I can’t imagine how anyone could vote against it.
i agree! but b5 is currently at the bottom of the rankings, its win/lose ratio is like 1:6 right now.
the b1 band’s “the a1 album” is completely dominating.
I was lazy and didn’t bother including a link to the album art for each entry? Should I have? WIll my choices be slaughtered because I was a lazy slob?
i’d say roughly a third of the entries have no links at all, and many of the rest have either art or link, but not both.
Is there any possibility of changing the link for one of my albums? I linked to a YouTube vid for one of the songs but have since then made a playlist of all the songs on the record.
sure. you can send me email @ firstname.lastname@example.org, if you don’t want to divulge anything.
I’m not sure I’m going to get my submissions in! Having trouble finding the time when I’m next to my full collection. That’s okay, though, my tastes are pretty binary: (1) stuff that will already have been mentioned by somebody else and (2) stuff nobody else will vote for.
are you sure?
i can leave the submissions open for a few days more, even after voting starts. not a big deal on my end.
