Seeing as they have ignored this whole event since just after the deadline. I’m starting to think they may have abandoned ship on this one. I don’t intend to start rumors because everything leads me to believe Warren and the team are great people, but I think it would be appropriate for them to address it considering the effort everyone put in and…[Read more]
Why would they abandon ship? Would be easier for them to just take 3 random winners and move on. I think what you’re seeing is why a lot of competitions don’t have a “we’ll listen to all entries and pick the best one” rule, but instead go with a “most social network likes wins” rule.

i’m more scared that they will tailor the winners to not spend a fortune in prize shipments, it’s not an hard thing to do: when in doubt between 2 winners who are close but one is clearly better, it’s a matter of “taste” to choose one over the other, i would not even blame them, i never saw an american contest with heavy prizes with no “US only…[Read more]
Thank you. My EQ on the acoustic guitar was very deliberately set to make the vocals sound super clear on the intro (and in line with contemporary mixing), but the slap delay was probably a mistake in retrospect.
