Tim said it would be cool to provide an alternative order, from all slowest selections grouped together, to the fastest.

Here ya go, Tim! -- Alterate playlist file (compatible with Winamp and Windows Media Player)


It is my great honor to award a Green Monkey Master Badge to Barbara! This is her third time participating in GMMP, which now makes her a Green Monkey Master.



Congratulations, Barbara!

OH MY GOD OH MY GOD! I feel so much love in the room right now! This is such an honour!

I'd like to thank my co-participants for setting the bar so high, and Splotchy for the vision and for funding this project, I'd like to thank my legions of fans and my agent, my lawyer, my manicurist. I accept this Green Monkey badge with such pride and vow to live my life by the code.

timdrussell said...

Nice job, man. Looking forward to discovering some new music.

Congrats to barbara.

Splotchy said...

Oops, Tim! I had initially forgotten to upload the alternate playlist file.

It's up now.

timdrussell said...

Ha! Cool! Thanks for the m3u! That really is a nice bonus. Good jorb, man. I was going to put that playlist together this morning and send it to you, but I knew you'd remember I mentioned it. This is so great. I'm glad I got involved.

Chris said...

Once again, thanks to all! And congrats to Barbara! Welcome to the club.

Splotchy said...

barbara, you earned it!

tim, you might not be satisfied with the playlist file. I didn't do it based on BPM, I just put all the participants' first tracks together, all the participants' second tracks together, etc. If you can't stand that and want to make a playlist that really does go slow to fast based on the BPM of the songs, you're welcome to give it a go (and I'll upload it).

chris, the few, the proud, the Green Monkey Masters.

Johnny Yen said...

I've posted my comments on my songs. Thanks for the invite-- I really enjoyed it!

I'm so jealous of Barbara! I'll bet her Green Monkey Badge gets her past the crowds and bouncers right into all the chic clubs.

BeckEye said...

Okie dokie, my comments are up.

Fun! I can't wait to be a Monkey Master too.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Awww thanks for the congrats, guys. Normally I would never agree to be part of a club that would have me as a member, but this is different.

Tenacious S said...

Discussion is coming. Sorry. I am overworked and underpaid.

Splotchy said...

Don't worry, ten s.

I'm looking forward to reading a discussion of your selections, but it certainly isn't a requirement or anything.

Tenacious S said...

Done. And thanks! That was fun.
