As with the nominees list, each year's inductees are determined by a voting group of "over 1,000" previous winners, historians and members of the music industry. Since 2012, the Hall has also included a fan vote, which has no practical mathematical effect on the outcome; the winning top five artists of the fan vote are compiled into a single ballot. That ballot is then factored into the total tally of 1,000-plus votes from the Hall's voting membership. Those members weigh factors "such as an artist's musical influence on other artists, length and depth of career and the body of work, innovation and superiority in style and technique are taken into consideration," the Hall explains of the process.

The more I think about 2018, the more I think it's been a "stinker"...  :pouting-face
Disappointed by the betrayal of someone I tried to put trust into. :anguished:
Disappointed I couldn't get to see Slowdive because of too much work and then there's not much work for (most of) the rest of the year.  :unamused:

The Cure have given us a few "gig news" to chat about etc., but new material seems nowhere to be seen (or we just don't know yet).

Still, of course, I am better off than many other humans (who are suffering around the world), I have food on the table, the heating is on, I can watch what I want on telly or dvd, I can listen to tons of music...  :happy

I understand where your coming from WOAW. I think this year has been a year of enlightment for some, there have been so many negative things that have come out and really affected people on a mass scale. Hopefully you're right, that there is better things on the horizon for others, including yourself :)

You know, I stood in my friends house on New Year last year and he said to me, I can feel this year is going to be a good one and I agreed- I think that positivity set me up so I’ll be employing the same thinking next year.

I have enjoyed my time spent here too. Long may that continue  :happy

I don't wanna "write the year off" before it's over... but in general, in this year 2018 there have been a few disappointments and let-downs, some cool music & concerts, some good friends (new and old), not (too) much work, not (too) much money, some boring days, a few exciting days... and so on...

Nice to read your reflections ChemicalOverload :)
From where I’m sitting this year has felt pretty challenging and tiring, but in a necessary sort of way (maybe like childbirth ...a challenging time of change but with a (somewhat hazy) sense that’s it’s heading towards meaningful horizons.
I seem to have encountered many people who have experienced this year as exceptionally difficult and tiring (so maybe something significant is happening at a collective level, not just individual)?

The last few weeks have been the longest but alas, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Friday, Christmas begins and soon enough, this year ends. What a fast and funny year it has been. I can honestly say it's been a great one and I'm a bit sad to be ending it. Anyone else have any thoughts?
