But you might have a different name by then
BarnacleVision just doesn't flow.
We've had a total of 51 players
19 players have played in all three
19 players have played in two
14 players have played just once
7 players should really never have bothered
How about Aquavision
I see yours as a bit of a SPIN OFF, rather than a MAIN EVENT!
That's a GOOD THING!
Introducing your hosts
Kyogre to present the winning tiara
Everyone loves being the spin off!
@ButterTart has shown the most interest so far. Is that covers thing really what you want to do hun?
My personal opinion is that if you’re too strict with the criteria it makes it all a little reductive. But I guess changing it up now and then keeps things fresh. How would a covers event work (I know there’s an obvious answer to that)?
The only thing I'd hope in terms of future main shows, is to keep them free from genre specific themes. Covers, languages, years etc are fine, but say acoustic, musicals, Eurovision or girl bands (for example) types of themes kinda limit the variety. The spirit of the event is 'anything goes', which can be done with limited criteria.
I think a covers version and a speed competition work as alternatives that don't push the boat too far out to sea though.
The foreign language one for me was a bit of a struggle (though I was genuinely excited for Kala's first find-an-artist-connected-to-Mozambique extravaganza).
Yeah I found that tough.
That said the odd 'special' probably wouldn't hurt.
Christ this really has become a THING.
I adored the foreign language one. I chose India and got to explore music I had never really heard before. I think the people that tried to reverse engineer their song to a country lost some of the joy of it.
I think the concept was cool but perhaps not being present for the performance shows hurt my enjoyment.
And I think I skew more towards the lyrics than the music sometimes.
I'd love to see you drop an entry that we can't guess.
Did I really come 29th in Agvision?
so i came 29th EVERY TIME at least I’m consistent(ly worst)
Another star only 6 contestants have been top 10 twice. It's really hard to see a Sweden/ Russia player developing YET!
I'm happy to run one, definitely. I want to do a covers round but if the consensus is to just do another free choice, then I'm also cool with that.
Yes, you were third last. I noticed that.
If Moopy was a vine
I'm going to enter a cover regardless of the theme!
Atomic Kitten Tide is High is a surefire bet.
You just know @Iguana is going to enter Kate Bush’s Rocket Man
I couldn’t decide between Kylie’s Locomotion or Sam Fox’s I Only Wanna Be With You for a covers contest.
Why don't we have a VOMIT EMOJI?
I heard a cover of Jolene by the Sisters of Mercy the other day so I'm sorted.
Someone could go META and submit a cover of a song that has already been in ASFM.
Here was me thinking I was making (slow) progress with my 29th place! I’m going to walk into the sea instead
However I am imagining a cover versions ASFM to just sound like a two hour long John Lewis advert. VOMIT EMOJI.
Oh did they do one? I must check it out. My go to Jolene is the Strawberry Switchblade version.
OMG OMG how about a @COB karaoke competition where you have to do an ASFM song. *buys massive beige coat*
29th was technically better as each event had more players, so you can have that.
I can drive you round a deserted car park
Anyone who submits one of those BREATHY VOCALED REAL MUSIC CUNT cover versions should be disqualified on principle.
Well quite. And if anyone even CONSIDERS that cunt that was in that TUI advert they should be BANNED FOR LIFE.
I’m happy to be a chart anomaly
I am so covering Todeloo. *sashays round a grotty bedsit*
*enters generic ballad*
