A[P]SOTW Update: What The Fuck Is Going On?

So some of you might be wondering what the fuck is going on with the A[P]SOTW judging.

Well the good news is that I should have all the comments back from all the judges by Monday evening.

[Are you hearing that judges???]

What that means is that once they’re all in my grubby little hands, I have to read them and then compile them into some semblance of order – and sense – so I can write a bloody epic post to give you all the feedback you’re waiting on.

Given there were over 20 submissions this time, it might be easier if I do it over a couple of posts for fear of getting an entry in the Guinness Book of Records for ‘longest blog post in the entire universe’.

As we’re near the end of the year and you’ll all soon be going out and getting pissed out your heads under the guise of ‘Christmas spirit’, I will endeavor to do this within 2 weeks.

I know Northern will question that, but I will … if only for the fact I’d like to bloody enjoy the anti-climax that is Santa’s annual visit.

Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to shout.

What I can say is that we had a very broad range of responses – with a couple approaching the challenge in a similar way to the way I would have – which I’ll leave up to you to determine whether that’s a compliment or an insult.

So until then, have a toptastic weekend.

Congrats to those who bothered to answer the brief..

You’ll be better for it, even if the feedback is harder to swallow than one direction’s output as defined by Billy.

I’m very much looking forward to reading people’s approaches to solving what was a devilishly complex challenge.

I concur with Niko, regardless of the feedback, you will walk away better for it.

It appears rather quiet on here. I presume that is because many of the regular characters are still in the throws of thanksgiving good cheer. My best wishes to each and every one of them.

Certainly appears so doesn’t it. Though I think it’s probably due to alcohol rather than turkey.

Comment by Rob

Blame throwing and pre-excusing. That’s planning.

Comment by DH

Finally I do something you’re impressed by.

Well, I’m pretending you’re impressed by it.

Comment by Rob

Don’t. I wasn’t.

Comment by DH

I remain open minded on issues of tardiness
