There is some reasoning behind her statement (as well as the fact that TOMCAT is basically all "Name this title character from Twain's "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn") but to go so far as to bar the A team from playing? That's nuts for you guys. It will make it easier for EP to make a repeat of...

Everyone's a critic and most people are DJs

So I'll admit it: I'm a music elitist. I buy all my new music on vinyl, listen to bands from England who won't release their debut albums in the U.S. for another month (see my current obsession with The Pipettes) usually can explain the exact reasons your favorite band sucked from their first album,...

I don't think he's the absolute greatest ever, but someone should throw The Boss out there. Thus: BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN AND THE E STREET BAND I'm stunned there's a discussion on this. Tell me what American band has done jazz, funk, three-chord, pop, and soul better than them. It may not have been total...

His water finally broke... In all honesty, I think he got the love and adoration not for his voice (which was quite amazing if he was on a good day and non-existent on a bad day) but for the fact that he was a sexy manbeast of his own making . He was a pimp that made it off of an apparently legendar...

Okay, so I got to the discussion late. It's a good one, especially with my professed love and obsession for trash. Anyhow, I'm working on the EP high school trash with Andrew and a slew of others, and I'd second the general consensus that there has to be a differentiation and lowering of each decade...

Let's do a national poll. If this thing can get even more than a page of views, it's worth it. Now for the sorely missing Minnesota view: Concerns about Eden Prairie being either a fluke or overrated are greatly exaggerated. Michael's ACE performance was no fluke, and he's improving day by day. Igor...

Your team isn't good if they complain that trash kills them. MAGGIE WALKER 07: WORST TEAM IN QUIZBOWL HISTORY! In response to people misconstruing my statements... SHUT UP! Honestly, has Maggie Walker ever had a reason to complain? Trash causes their PPG to go down by 20. When they're ahead by 400,...

Okay, I know, beating a dead horse, but with the trash bashing that this thread devolved into earlier on, I just wanted to scream. As a trash specialist (seriously, it's about all that I can do, but I do it very well) I can agree to a point that some of the time, NAQT overdoes and incorrectly does t...

I never got around to saying this. I'm not playing EPIC this year but intend to write all of the music.
