Number of wins in each calendar year:

2014: 3
2015: 1
2016: 5 :worship:
2017: 1
2018: 3 (so far)



The years 2016, 2017, 2018 were all punctuated by bans which took me out of the game for months. :hug:
Palindrome! :eek:h: I mean, you have done great with those unexpected holidays. I am also sure you would've stopped few bad winners.

Indeed :eek: :yeah: Hopefully I can ruin the palindrome, but time is running out. :eek:h:
Yeah, only 6 weeks to ruin this palindrome. At least there is 2019 to break the route of odd years.

Skipped voting: 220s, 234f (out of protest), 237s

Favourite game: 225 (Garage Rock)

Positive surprises:
- all 3 wins were a surprise to me, but Willie Griffin's win really came out of nowhere.
- Game 228: 5th place with Teengirl Fantasy's Cheaters

Low points of the year:
- being banned from September 2017 to March 2018
- John Maus's Hey Moon winning game 232 ("isle of misfits")
- the "Melismatic Vocals" and "Disney" games

Disappointments (in terms of the songs I submitted):
- Game 230: 15th place with Can - She Brings The Rain
- Game 231: 10th place with Velly Joonas - Stopp, Seisku Aeg!
(Those two, especially Velly Joonas in the "rare languages game", sound like BSG-friendly winners to me :shrug:)
- Game 241: 15th place with The Bug - Skeng
(Been meaning to send it for years, ever since game 2... I was negatively surprised by the lack of reactions from the crowd.)
- Game 243: 8th place with Taeko Ohnuki - Le Courant De Mecontentment
(because some random person also sent a Taeko Ohnuki song that ended up winning the contest after being the first song in the alphabetically ordered playlist)
- Game 253: SF loss (14th in SF) with Lou Reed - Dirt (ended 2018 with my worst result of the year)

Peculiar observation:
In Game 238, I gave a 12 to every French person playing at the time: Alycia (Ty Segall - Feel) and Laurent Moy (Astonvilla - Rock Music) in SFs, Whitlinger Jones (Telephone - New York avec toi) in F. The theme was "US Open related".

it's sad... but I'm sure it would have made the Final if they understood the lyrics :D

Have you seen this modern cover? I think they do a good job, but I prefer the original :cool:
