Just sent mine, looking forward to the countdown!

Very very tough list, I had a text file of 50 or so just now I spent a while whittling down to 25. My way is usually to leave in the ones personal to me, though often likely won't get any other votes, but also feel there are a few clear winners I'd be remiss to exclude as well. But striking that balance is tough. The art of the LoC.

Also something that didn't come up I think, funny that technically who the villain is can be a spoiler. Sometimes not revealed to be such until later in the story. Not that I mind for this historic occasion.

OK, I'll start tabulating soon.  If anyone still wants to contribute, they can send it in but I should be done within the next few days, so hurry.  Realistically, I'm expecting only one more maybe.  As it stands, we have 13 lists.  I was hoping for 15 but this is still looking pretty darn good.

Need to get to mine.  The hardest part for me is going to be the actual placement.

That it is.  As long as it comes in within the next couple days, you are gold though.  I don't use excel so it tends to take me a few days to calculate.

Whoa.  You do it manually?  I'd claw out my own eyeballs without excel.

IKR, I taught myself how to use Excel just to run these lists. And I only do about 1 per year. Fortunately I have a background in CS. Unfortunately, I'm a terrible typist. But, one very useful thing I realized is, every person's list should add up to 325 points, assuming they provided a complete list of 25. This is very helpful in finding mistakes.

I've been thinking for a while, we should collaborate to come up with a "best" way to do these. I can do the major calculations in a few hours (typing+finding mistakes). It's the write-ups that take me forever.

We are up to 14 and if the Lurker can get his in on time, then we will have 15!  Wee!  And it is a surprising list so far.  In a good way.  This one will be fun.

Looking forward to it :) And least you rarely, if ever, make mistakes. Wish I could say the same :-[

The tabulations are almost done.  If anyone wants to take part but haven't yet, better get it in tonight or relatively early tomorrow.

Tabulations done.  I'm giving a forum member a little more time to send his in but if I don't get it by tonight, I got to continue without.  Looking forward to this one.

Whew, tabulations are done!  It starts Monday and we have 15 lists, despite some regulars not joining in on this one.  Actually makes me hopeful for future lists, too.

There is an old 78 record I have with lyrics calling time a villain, thought it would be easy to find but I guess it was not released on vinyl so the only videos are with it being played the same way I play it.

Jump 35 seconds in to hear the song:
