   Discussion: TMBG's "Apollo 18" - Side 1

My favorite TMBG album!
Adam Hartfield · 15 years, 4 months ago
Can we have either an "ignore poll" option or a None of the Above option? I have no clue about any of TMBG's albums and don't want to skew the results, but I also don't want to see these polls every time I look at the page.
Josh Woodward Back · 15 years, 4 months ago
It's in the works.
lawrence · 15 years, 4 months ago
how are you going to handle side 2? 'fingertips' or 'everything is catching on fire', 'banjo fingertips', etc....
John J. Ryan Back · 15 years, 4 months ago
Fingertips will be the one option as a whole.
Josh Woodward · 15 years, 4 months ago
I line up fairly well with most of the general TMBG fan opinions, but I've never quite understood the fascination with "Statue". For some reason, I really dislike that song, and find it strange that I live in a universe where it's tied with "I Palindrome I".

see, for me the choice was really hard between statue and spider.

I can't fathom how spider is fairing so poorly.

lawrence Back · 15 years, 4 months ago
I used to be really into Spider (and Hall of Heads, for some reason). Never more than Statue or Palindrome, but I thought it was a fun little song. But that's really all it was. It's 45 seconds long. Not a lot to work with, you know?

I think it's only doing 'poorly', though, because of the way the poll is constructed. If it weren't for Statue and Palindrome, Spider might get a few more votes, but I suspect that its votes are otherwise split between those, and even without one of them, many people would pick Mammal or Dinner Bell as a close second.

Put Spider up against most of The Spine and it might have a chance. :)

Am I an oddity in that I really like The Spine?
VaiVedrai Back · 15 years, 4 months ago
I like some songs on "The Spine", like ''Experimental Film', 'Bastard Wants to Hit Me', and Prevenge', which got me into TMBG.
Bender Back · 15 years, 4 months ago
My guess is that several folks voted for it because of the mention on Live Noise.
nate... Back · 15 years, 4 months ago
that'd be... scary? weird?

Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 15 years, 4 months ago
No, totally expected and typical human nature.
nate... Back · 15 years, 4 months ago
well, that pretty much clinches it... I'm not human.

But as a result of the tie, Palindrome will be an automatic participant in the wild card round.

I am scoring each of these polls by means of # of votes x % of votes x 100.  In this case, both Palindrome and Statue posted scores of 280 (8 votes x 35% x 100).  All non-poll winning songs involved in tie-breakers will be involved in the wild card round.  The remaining slots in the 10-slot wild card poll will be filled in by the highest scoring non-winning songs.

All scores will determine seeding in the playoffs.
