Wow! I could win YOU GUYS' album of the year? So there, man.
I realize that these prizes are sort of random (e.g. there are no physical presses available of my favorite EP this year right now so you get the runner-up EP instead) but hey!
Digging: Maybeshewill - Sing The Word Hope In Four-Part Harmony
jom you picked the year's worst albums in the example didn't ya
Digging: Misery Signals - Of Malice and the Magnum Heart
Well, that's not really fair, because I don't know! Maybe people really liked Bangerz after they saw that Steve Kardynal video!
I can't wait to win Bangerz on vinyl
Digging: Matt Aspinwall/The Brave Little Abacus - Split

If not, hopefully you will enjoy something from Brazzers.
The MYSTERY PRIZE! is probably a limited-edition vinyl of Bangerz!!!!!
You're awesome for doing these contents, Jom! Just be sure to announce who the winners are once the contest ends. I'd hate to be in anticipation for all of December, not knowing whether I one or not!
Digging: The Future Sound of London - Lifeforms
Bangerz is for sale on vinyl with the topless alternate album cover on her website for only 35 dollars wow what a steal

Digging: Jeff Rosenstock - Worry.
Yeah this is a plebeian contest m/
>> are contribs allowed to guess?
Sure -- the more, the merrier. I just ask that they follow the same rules as everybody else (i.e., don't cheat).

Digging: ABC - The Lexicon of Love
Shout-out to the user who submitted a 2012 album on his 2013 list. I wish you all the best in achieving your biggest goals in life, whatever they may be. You do realize that you could have taken a few days to, I dunno, think about what's on there, yeah?

I need that handwritten note!
Damn Sputnik rolling in dough with these top-notch prizes
hope the winner enjoys his new justin timberlake album

Lloyd can attest that I do indeed send out prizes to people in faraway lands. He scored a copy of The Revolution is Never Coming in our The Red Paintings contest.
I got it down to a tin. Gettin' ready for that CD/Vinyl that I guess I wouldn't mind having.
I think I know #1 but the rest, dang.
"Thank god it's for staff favorites and not user favorites cuz I don't need a fucking A Lot Like Birds CD"
Trebor's best comment in ages
" please let me know so I can try to figure out if you're Snoop telling the truth or Snoop Lion"
"please let me know so I can try to figure out if you're Snoop telling the truth or Snoop Lion"

Digging: Vektor - Terminal Redux
Cool. Great stuff! It won't be an easy contest, though.
Digging: The Dillinger Escape Plan - Dissociation

"festive jom bombs"

Here we go
Digging: Dangers - The Bend In The Break
As much as Id love to enter the contest I dont like a lot of staff favorites so if I won id just be taking a prize from someone who actually might love it..
Just submit an entry and abstain from accepting the prize. It's not metaphysics.
wow i won this last year and the prizes weren't nearly as cool
post a comment in this webzone and I'll send you a pizza roll
I wanna pizza roll
4TH place pizza roll please
all I want for Christmas is img tags back : ' (
but all i listen to is Botch! (((((((
Getting a letter from Jom is probably the best thing anyone can ask for.
Hey Jom whats your address so i can send you your choice for album of the year on vinyl
What Poet said
"Cool. Great stuff! It won't be an easy contest, though."
Word. I can see what and where each and every staff member is voting but fuck me I have no idea who's gonna come out on top.
I think the number 1 is going to fuck up every single entry haha
Yeezus christ or the 20/20 experience
>> Hey Jom whats your address so i can send you your choice for album of the year on vinyl
Sputnikmusic c/o Jom
129 West 81st Street
New York, New York 10024
is it possible to edit a submission
what i said
did y'all not see that "all submissions are final" bit? plain ass text n shit.
"10. Asking Alexandria - From Death to Destiny"
You added an extra 0. Probably should fix that.
Digging: Wheeler Walker Jr. - Redneck Shit
oops I missed that bit
I can't wait to win Falling In Reverse on vinyl for best album in all of eternity.
Digging: Trophy Eyes - Chemical Miracle
fuck I sent in the whole top 10 don't DQ me plz
i want the handwritten jom note, so i guess I should try to be a little bit wrong.
just sent my entry
if I'm near-right, turns out this years top 10 is actually going to be really superb and interesting
it's easy to forget that the staff collectively has awesome taste, when its most visible members do not, to say the least
oh Sea, you're a funny guy
Digging: Thy Catafalque - Meta
Hahahaha @ Sea
Conrad Tao - Voyages better be #1
i played my picks really safe, apparently that wasn't the best choice
Bump (for anyone who might not have seen this yet).
Irving have you posted a top albums list yet?
need. that. data.
No I haven't, and probably won't - at least not in list form. Was planning on doing a blogpost at some point.
Besides, the data probably won't help that much if you don't know the points distribution =3
When are the winners being contacted?
After our year-end feature is published!
hey I won
you should tell us what the mystery prize is when you get it
The prizes are in my blog post, though, so it's no longer a mystery!
jom what happens if the silver + bronze winners don't contact you?
Their prizes collect dust in my work office until they write me.
i always thought there might be a deadline, and then they would be passed over to the 4th or 5th place winner
Why would you think that?
so all those gifts don't go to waste
so wait, we have to tell you if we won? that dosent make much sense
I didn't win the gold haha :D. But thanks, still waiting to see if i'm bronze or silver
>> so wait, we have to tell you if we won? that dosent make much sense
Don't be silly, Reverse Perpendiculars! I e-mailed the winners at the same exact e-mail they submitted their entries with -- they were only namedropped above just in case they forgot to check their e-mail. In fact, one winner apparently got himself locked out of his e-mail, but everything worked out in the end.
>> so all those gifts don't go to waste
Unless decapitation, dismemberment, or some other deadly thing happened, I will always defer to the actual winners.
Can you get just give one to me because I love you so much Jom? Preferably I would want a hand-written
note from you.
