Bracket round 1, you get one vote per section, and you have to vote in each section so pick which is the most IDM of whatever choices you have, even if you think they all suck. 

 

There was a weird number of votes, with 59 entries having 9 votes or more and then like 18 entries with 8 votes... I didn't wanna leave anything out of the 64 it should start with so I just included the 8-vote-getters as like 'wild cards' basically, and tried to either clump them together in categories together with each other or with other similarly-popular entries (with 9 or 10 votes). I also made the decision to try and group similarly-popular entries together so we would've have something that got 15 votes fighting for something with 9 votes. I did my best, cut me some slack, but if you see a mistake please tell me immediately (PM).  :trashbear:

 

So things are a little funny looking, but it's all done as fairly as I could without any knowledge of how to randomize and pair stuff via software or whatever and trying my best to randomize as much as I could.

 

Good thing is this will all be quick for the rest of the rounds, on your end, as there's no videos and only one entry referencing a picture. Easy peasy voting here now, will leave up through next weekend at least.

 

If you're seeing this post you have to vote, those are the rules people.  :rtfm:

Docking and ice water with ice both made it in though, so that's something. I was always partial to the botanically ignorant one as well, maybe next year (will IDM still exist in 2019? does it even exist now? these are the questions of our times).

Looks like Ulillillia isn't doing well thus far either...poor guy. I bet if beak or xltronic did one of these he'd win.  :trollface:

How well sharting in jorts is doing for Most Surprising 2018.

Every category has received votes - that means someone here thinks each of them is most idm 2018. The spread is strong.

I’m really glad to see my quote about the dank applications of IDM in there. I am today’s leading intellectual after all.

I hope 'Pretending you have synesthesia to impress a girl' wins so we can do acoustic Radiohead + Elliot Smith covers as a tribute to the kinda guy who'd use this pickup tactic

 

++Also all the best sharting in jorts on a segway++

Being Fucking Awful I think would be an excellent comp.  Doesn't look like it will make it past this round sadly.
