    No one said it would be EASY.

    That said he didn't make it easy for himself. Running ASFM is busy work!

    I was going to look for evidence, but it was the last thing I decided not to include on my to-do list, promise!! :)

    You love my honey?

    :D What can I say? I do honestly vote without thinking who it might be - mainly because I hate almost everyone's tastes, it seems, so what would be the point?
    I thought you were the one to send Babymetal last time, that's as close to a crossover to metal and Diddy as you'll get. I don't do it on purpose <3

    OK it's rather after the event but I'm ready to comment :D
    Firstly well done to @Beryl for managing to get through this without the yahoos breaking you (but you haven't been on for ages so maybe I'm speaking too soon)

    I'm rather anti-twist, but it was at least entertaining to be on the good side of it for once :D I loved the Jury vote idea, even if in practice the bitter Betties on the panel giving 90% of the songs 0 points was rather :rolleyes: of course THEY were the ones evil enough to vote twice in disruptive ways too - basically @RaspberrySwirl and @jivafox are evil for turning this prestigious a-Beryl-ation into an abomination

    That said, I can't complain too much about the horridly open-to-abuse voting system, since @ZenGiraffe made my day with that 146 bombshell :D I had a good cackle the second time too. DESERVED. I'll have to remember I received the highest single vote in ASFM history now

    Cute that the novelty song won, I admit that was RIGHT in the bin when I was voting, sorry :D and in such a strong selection too!! I can't be surprised though, I can count the number of ASFM Winners I really like on one elbow

    But VERY happy with 4th place, thanks to everyone else who voted for me, in descending order of points-based gratitude: @Ill Advised @ButterTart , @HerSereneHighnessAnniFrid , @Win_the_game , @Raining On Me , @Ag, @Beverley , @dmlaw , @Kate and @Mugatu , as well as @COB and @RJN for their juicy jury votes - I wonder how things would have panned out if you'd got your second votes too!

    Also honourable mention to @funky and @OutSynk for your sterling GIFwork.

    I'll take this success as a vindication and a mandate to prepare Asian Persuasion II (which I would've done out of spite anyway but hey)

    By the way @RaspberrySwirl i know you need some sort of a method of voting since you hate everything, but I’m confused

    In Tartvision you seemed annoyed at wasting points on something that turned out not to be from me

    This time you made a comment that seemed like you were happy you clocked me this time, and totally came for me :D

    it seems to be a bit personal but I can’t work out whose side you’re on :D

    Another Life is NOT novelty - listen to those lyrics! It’s a great example of Italo Disco

    What can I say Diddy, I love you and would want to like your songs but this is not ASFM’s best friend race and you have yet again sent something unlistenable.

    You say that, but your song was chopped and his came fourth so :eyes:

    (I was also chopped I'm ALLOWED to say this :basil:)

    @Beryl dear if you are still alive, is it possible to get a text version of the final results for posterity, I can’t even see the final scoreboard any more.

    I’d LOVE some stats too, I wonder how many voters gave each song points

    I voted twice too, but I assume that's fine because you didn't notice :)

    I did notice, and it was fine because you didn’t try to fuck anyone up

    well you sort of did in the jury vote but that was so watered down I didn’t care

    ok I misspoke, the song is not novelty (but didn’t do anything special for me), but the entry was surely fuelled by some ridiculous spectacle element! That’s novelty for me

    I think we need a JUDGE, JURY, and EXECUTIONER.

    I really entered it for people who love an urgent melodramatic synth and enjoy the idea that Kano still sounds futuristic. I think its main novelty value is that it really is THAT GOOD for people who enjoy this kind of music. It’s just a superlative example of its genre including its nostalgia bonus :disco:

    Kano was the stand out from day 1. I'm not sure if my fave has won before.

    Beryl’s just taking a bit of time to reflect on how empowered and appreciated running a contest on moopy has made him feel

    What if he really meant it when he called this the FINAL ACT?
