I have been to GP in a while. I went to look for what you are talking about and I did not find anything.

That was funny. I liked how the real top contenders were hardly, if at all, mentioned over there.

Is this thing about wrapped up?
I was hoping for a better turn out than two or three hundred people... I would think the numbers will gain every year.
Hey PJ taper... Xray scull got my vote. Maybe because the original is so amazing. For me it was...
Xray scull
Ween/Lips
Nick Cave
Klausen DC
The Klausen fluctuates in rank with the news... I'm happy to say it's moved down to number four.
I would have possibly voted for Hampton's Sid Barret. I love the medium and the timely tribute. I liked Jermaine's Tool poster and how it ties in with the song " Vicarious".
Thanks for the labor guys... have a good wildcard weekend.

Ends Monday morning at 1 AM.

252 votes so far. That is a remarkable turn out. Best of all it looks completely legit at this point.

My vote was between the Emek Ween/Flaming Lips and the Emek Nick Cave. I went with the Cave because it's the only one I've seen in person.

Maybe I'll change my mind someday when I have a spare $400 to spend on the Ween/Lips :)

Shouldn't the Hampton CCFA prints be counted as one?
Or would it matter/make a difference....
Was wondering if 13th place was 1 vote? Is all the art accounted for that received a nod?

Very cool guys... nice work.
Thanks to all the artists as well!

The ones on the winners list had at least 1 vote. It was a VERY close race at every level but 1st place. 1st place was a landslide. :)
