    As much as I absolutely hate to do this (I already waited long enough, hoping for more voters + law school final exams = no free time), it's time to have our final round. andrea just BARELY missed out on making it here, and between her and Articuno64 there are two very talented Smogonites who have been sent packing.

    But alas, on with the show! Here are your final contestants:

    NINAHAZA
    [​IMG]

    v.

    OMEGADONUT
    [​IMG]

    I really have nothing planned for this round, I'm out of good genre ideas. Therefore, it is up to the contestants: pick 3 songs and perform them. Simple as that. Because they get to choose, they get to play to their own strengths. Should be fun!

    Please get these done soon, I'm pretty sick of having this tourney hanging over my head!

    Okay, before you guys post anymore: I don't want everyone to have the songs before the voting begins, so Ninahaza, PM me your other two! OmegaDonut, post one of your three here in the thread so that you and Ninahaza are on an even playing field, then PM me the other two.

    On a serious note, I want to thank all my competitors, especially Ninahaza, for the fun karaoke (though it dragged on too long because school ruined my life this fall). I apologize for not making it more fun, but refer to the previous parenthetical.

    So this morning I get a PM from LightWolf saying the Circus Maximus staff will leave this open if they have my assurances that I will, someday, submit my entries. That's cool, but I was planning on posting my entries sometime anyway since two of them were almost complete. It's just not happening anytime soon, in between work\graduating\finishing RNG Reporter 9.

    In the meantime, here's a sneak preview of my first track.
