It's been standard all along for the person running the round to also submit a song.

Also, I assume the voting deadline is a week away as usual?

Huh. I didn't notice that. It is indeed the case, looking back through previous rounds. I blame cognitive biases.

Yes, voting deadline is a week, so get your votes in by Saturday, the 4th of June.

Congratulations odf!

Uh, it looks like you switched my column and yours.

Anyways, let's see... one of the top two ran that round, and the other was disqualified; meanwhile I just ran the previous round and I don't feel like running another one so soon. As far as I'm concerned, whoever wants to run the next round can do so. :)

Thank you!

It doesn't look like we've done it yet on this forum, so this time, the category is music from video games. You have until 18th June to submit!

Does it have to be music written specifically for video game or can it be music that was in a video game (and is associated with that particular video game)?
