This was a fun mix, - trackwise very straightforward, yet tricky to get right nonetheless.  Here's my effort:

Mix was one thing but to document your work and gear you used took time.

That's why I mixed it and didn't bother to document and upload. It was fun, though.
I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity. During these fits of absolute unconsciousness, I drank - God only knows how often or how much. As a matter of course, my enemies referred the insanity to the drink, rather than the drink to the insanity.

Well, to be honest, this will dramatically decrease you chances of winning  :P
In the beginning I thought I'd have a relatively good chance of winning something. I mean 16 prizes are a lot... many mixes ARE crap... but now with 900 and counting, basic arithmetics says chances are getting somewhat slim  ;D
But if they take all mixes with disabled download or without documentation out of the competition, half of the competitors might just disappear.  ;D ;D

It has been a WHILE since I've mixed something like this that's both live and with so few tracks. Getting the toms to speak and the stereo image to happen the way I wanted were probably the biggest challenges for me. Didn't hurt that everyone involved played and sang their asses off either. Great stuff
Loved doing this, I'd completely forgotten about this place and I'm very glad I stumbled onto it again.

not sure if I can attach an mp3 from my phone?

If this works, it's an early-ish version before I wrestled with the drums. It's really just a rough.  I don't have the project files any more, though, so it is what it is.  Gives you a good idea where I was headed, anyways.

Edit: apparently you can't upload files via tapatalk. I'll put a link up a little later.
Edit2: Here's the soundcloud -
