Tips for this series:

:) LITERAL WORKS: Use it as a RRSA…___ topic or make a pun. Wait, BACKSPACE on that

:) I FEEL YOU…even when no one else does: Visualize a scene. What do you hear?

:) I FEED OFF EACH OTHER:  There’s a slightly-exclusive red-carpet  invite to *BLIMPY’S SPILL-IN-THE -POOL HOLLYWOOD PARTY* if you can bring us the right song at the right price. [@williamsbach shall be our cost-benefit adjucator if need be and all decisions are final}

* There is no such thing

OK, I get it: No more secrets. Next ‘Spill game will be … *coughs and dies*

Zoo AnimalsYou can all* stop emailing me asking what my next Spill game will be.

* both of you.

First, letter Z on the A-Z deserves your full attention. I have 2 games in mind* depending on how you do.

* I don’t. It’s locked and loaded

 I tried a bluff on the A-Z to pin the new game on @Nilpferd, In reality it is @gordonimmel* I have been conspiring with. (Also a few others** on here)

* Steenbeck

** You got me, there are no others

This one will last a year* because I get bored checking in every 26 weeks. Also, I have co-ordinated** with @AliMunday to weed out any conflicts with submitted earworms.

* Possibly a lie

** Definately a lie

It shall be auction time PART IV

At the ‘Spill, we are concerned  about global warming. So to do our bit we would like you to post your bids from 250 to infinity here to keep processors cool.

“Somehow we found ourselves on the Sunset Strip playing songs for the highest bidder”

“My first job is to follow the musical course. Relationships, projects…there’s going to be a lot of collateral damage.”

No RR topic to bid on, so it shall be auction time. Take this nickel, make a dime….

We do not want songs about auctions or auctioneers. It’s an actual auction. i.e. first bid could be One Tin Soldier, second Two Hearts, etc. Get the idea? The # doesn’t have to be at the start of, or even in, the title – but the number should be central to the song and something you could actually bid. Think of it like 12 Days of Christmas run amuck.

Advance the bidding as slowly as you can. We have a week to kill; no point jumping right to Billion Dollar Babies and skipping Ten Million Slaves. Please allow three others to bid before you bid again. We’ll have no overnight bidduggery.

[Rules can be changed by consensus. The referee is our friend Good Will.]

Go ahead and use comments to post what you’d ‘ave bid guv’nor if that damn %$%^& hadn’t got there first or a song that would have fit between two bids, but let’s not swamp the thing with a hundred Two videos. (No, DsD, that would not count as a bid of 200.)

Bidding closes Monday at noon. Whatever the highest bid is, the charity of your choice will earn an equivalent number of ‘Spill points. (I’ll do you up something on official ‘Spill letterhed you can present to them. With luck, you might even get your picture in the local newspaper.)

APOLOGIES ALL, I MESSED UP THE START TIME. IT’S GO TIME!
