Midaso, Jackson, and myself are in trouble, because none of us have many later round picks that other people don't also have.
After this thing is done, I'm thinking of having one final vote: "Best discovered album". In this, people will rank their favorite albums that they had not heard before the tournament, and it will be ranked the same way as the decade polls.
Also, the nominator whose albums receive the most total points will be awarded the 'Hipster Cup'.
Well, at least I know that my ineptitude in the Predict It standings might be compensated by a shot at winning the Hipster Cup. Though I guess if the favorite Summerteeth wins, then that will carry Jonathan to victory. Also, it's funny how un-hipster some of the nominated albums are.
How exactly can you have a half album still in?
