Harvard Puzzle Hunt

Last week a small group of students, inspired by the MIT Mystery Hunt, held the Harvard Puzzle Hunt. While the hunt only attracted a few teams (eight teams registered, four teams participated), the hunt itself was very well done, with some very well done puzzles.

Here is the URL for the Hunt: http://hcs.harvard.edu/hunt/. Click on Grey Labyrinth and use the username grey, password paladin to gain access.

Of special note are the puzzles American Idol, Majority Report, Daily Double and Mixed Reviews (all round two puzzles). The Remix is a standard idea for a puzzle, but earns points for using numerous ungoogleable clips.

Discussion of the puzzles, with heavy spoilers, are here: http://www.greylabyrinth.com/discussion/viewtopic.php?t=8033&start=0

What am I, chopped liver? :)

Incidentally I'm working on that puzzle now... I have twenty of the songs, but still no answer. I have a gues at what to do, but it might be leading me down a dead end.

Your idea was fun, but it was really easy to guess the clips with a length like that.
