"All parody authors are created equal, but some parody authors are more equal than others"
-It's not a direct quote, but it's pretty close. And if you need to know of what, just PM me.

I see the point to remembering your roots, and personally I owe a lot of the authors here, just for the examples that they set, the time they have spent learning and writing, and the way they approach the craft. What I don't see the point of (any more) is presenting my list publicly. If you want to know what I think of your writing (and therein the 'you' that I'm granted access to), read my comments. I try to make them thorough where I think it's warranted (alright, sometimes I just go off 'cause I got somethin' to say).

Sorry if I'm the party pooper, and sorry if you came here wanting to see if your name made my list  :P. I apologize but I boost/deflate egos on a one-to-one basis only.

i think it's a pretty good list, but there are probably about 5000 parodies here by people on that list if not more... it might be a bit of a challenge to read them all.

I'd like to suggest two names to add to that list (it's a great list, BTW). I'd add Luke Brattoni (a.k.a Jake A. Ralphing), and also EmiLoca. They show that the youngsters can still have a lot of talent despite their lack of age, and out of the under-21 writers league, they are the best (no disrepect to DAK, though plenty of disrespect to that Charlie Decker character).

I swear on ALL that is good in this world...that I don't care that I'm not on the list...Honestly...

But...since you mentioned me...I did a little research...I didn't research everyone...but I picked a random person...Paul Robinson...and found that his first submission was submitted only 4 days prior to my first submission.

Like I said...I didn't take the time to check everyone's history out...but on that random person (who was the first person I looked at, honestly) I proved my point.  I don't need to be on your list...but you can't say that length of time on the site is your main qualification...unless you're really telling me that 4 days will make or break a person.

Written By: Luke Brattoni on 04/17/05 at 10:00 pm

I agree.
Moreover, the order in which you arranged your selection displays a subconscious 'ranking' of your chosen order.
Moreover, there is an inbalance in female representation on your list.
Moreover, your list encourages 'timeism', creating a social prejudice against newer writers and lessening their worth as writers.
Moreover, the misspellings of 'Bob Gomez' and the miscapitalisation of 'Merry' are highly offensive to certain religious denominations.
Moreover, it's technically 'everyone should know who A Room Full of Monkeys is'.
Moreover, your failure to implement colourful visual effects, like this or this or this is conclusive that your list fails to inspire any patriotic emotions for Papua New Guinea.

I'm quite shocked to find that, yes...there's like, no girls rpr'zentn.  But as far as your list goes, I think that a new parody author would do better to know the current, submitting authors of prestige (i.e. Poopie Longstocking  ;)) rather than the ones who were revered in their day, but hardly post anything anymore (not that I'm one to talk - haven't done a parody in over a month now, but as this list would ideally never include my name, I shouldn't even comment here).

Ingeborg submitted a parody with Jared a while ago saying that she was leaving and never coming back.  Jared has since returned, but Ingeborg hasn't.

Ashkicksass is on hiatus...but I'm sure she'd be thrilled to know that you've missed her. :)

1.  Not sure who you're talking to on the 'hurt feelings' bit...but I think that Billy honestly listed people he thought that new people should be aware of.  Whether the thread has turned into a popularity contest or not...I know that wasn't Billy's intent.

2.  I know I pulled the "I've been here longer than..." bit myself...but I regret it a little bit now.  Especially since I wasn't trying to be whiney or self-important...(my comment was mostly in jest...I still don't care that I wasn't on the list...and Billy knows that I'm cool with it)...and yet, that is exactly what your rant comes across as being...

3.  I'm sorry, I can't agree with that...there are a lot of people who do a LOT of rap.  Off the top of my head, Luke Brattoni does a TON...and while he may be a trouble breeding rapscallion, I think he's quite skilled...

While I admire Billy's plan to introduce newer Amirighters to the work of the "founding fathers", it seems to have gotten one or two people's backs up. It's difficult when great writers stop submitting and their great work gets "mothballed"...hell, you're doing well if you're still getting votes two days after submitting...so nobody should take offence at what Billy posted with good intentions. And we all know that the "middle era" writers (those that started posting in early 2004) are BY FAR the most talented!!  ;)

Luke Brattoni does a TON...and while he may be a trouble breeding rapscallion, I think he's quite skilled...


What's that you say?  Luke has trouble breeding rapscallions?  Well, it's no wonder --  Rapscallions aren't especially well-suited to the climate in his part of Australia.  They don't like to mate, because it's too darn hot.

not to hurt your feelings, but this thread ain't about the history and who should new people know.  it's more of a popularity contest see who's more popular.

for example not to pick on anyone, but I did a little researching.  now I know I been around here more than some of the people on that first list.   let's take Bob Gomez, Spaff.com, ,and Paul Robinson for example, their first submit was in 2003, hmmmmmmmmm.  my first parody was submitted on Febuary 14, 2002.  my second on Feb. 18 2002 which I wrote sometime in 2001 along with my first recording.

First Submitted Parody
"'Cause I'm Too White" a parody to Afroman "'Cause I Got High"
http://www.amiright.com/parody/2000s/afroman6.shtml

Second Submitted Parody
"Undependent Women" a parody to Destiny Child "Independent Women"
http://www.amiright.com/parody/2000s/destinyschild16.shtml
with a recording link

and lets face it, I'm the only parody person here that does mostly rap/hip hop songs.  although there are other people out there with enough skills to do them .... STG, BLO-TOWN, My Name is Kenny, Ghetto John, MakGonz (done two with him), Xander999, and iisryan

WOW!! Once again I'm pleased and humbled to find myself used to exemplify undeserved favoritism...I'm sure you all will agree that no one more rightly deserves this honor...

Hmmm...and since on both occasions I've been used to show either undeserved favoritism or unfair treatment/lack of deserved recognition for other writers I think that from this point on my name should be coined as a phrase with a sub-text meaning, i.e., "You were Paul Robinson'd" - would mean that for some reason you did not receive equal recognition to another writer.  Conversely,  someone could say, "Whose  ;)ss did you kiss to get the 'Paul Robinson' treatment, I've been here just as long as you...and my stuff is just as good...or better."

Well, I'll be "Paul Robinson"ed sideways!   Hee hee!   ;D

Kristof...yes, one of the special benefits of defining a coined-phrase is that you are allowed to leave it open to just about any interpretation.  That allows everybody to hear what they want to hear...and if they want to hear that they are being "dissed" instead of "kissed", well that is their prerogative and pleasure as far as I'm concerned...In fact, depending on the impression the reader might have of me ...well...if someone reading "looks like I've been Paul Robinson'd" thinks I'm a total unregenerative  ;) sshole they will take a different meaning out of it than, say, all the folks out there who think I'm just the coolest thing since Eskimo pies...

Nice. See it's all part of the same script methinks. Paul's comment rules, but it would not exist without the kickstart it got from Billy starting the thread. So they're both listed as contributors, just with different titles.

I went on a rant at the beginning of this thread where I stated that I agree with having a 'list', just not 'displaying it publicly'... (heh heh, I said 'displaying it publicly') and it occurs to me now that the reason why I posted it was because I'm a 22-year-old jealous old man who felt very Paul Rodinson'd at the time. I have since started working out on a regular basis in an attempt to trade in my recurring jealousy for a state where I"m too tired to be jealous. Also, I went back and looked at some of the comments I've received during my tenure here... and I'm happy I kissed the right ;c)sses around here to get the Paul Robinson treatment like that.

2"Zee"?... close enough. You're most certainly welcome once again Paul, for the role (however small) I have played in making 'Paul Robinson' the common catch phrase that it is today. I too thought that was a really cool coincidence that your week came and gave you a boost when you needed it. Either a really cool coincidence or proof that I had super powers, which would still be really cool.



P.S. Really tight parody, Phil. I think that might be a record for the most name-dropping in the shortest lyrical time period. And I support anything on which my name appears, unless I wrote it, of course.

You're very welcome Kristof. You honor me. You took to the atmosphere of this place faster than most as I remember.

It's kinda funny actually. You guys are the ones who flourished here and grew yourselves into (amiright) house-hold names. I just yelled your name really loud for one week because I liked your stuff and I remember how hard it was getting a reputation and original exposure on the site, mostly because I was still doing it at the time.

(The brief history of a weekly happening that took place from late 2003 to mid-2004 is to follow)

It was October 2003 and this guy I didn't know named Spaff.com came up with this idea to have appreciation weeks. He did one for MooRocca and one for Rick D. Then I took up the job of deciding who got a week because despite Spaff's best efforts to be a geek with no life, he still to this day seems to have a life to tend to (Which always bothered me; I mean if your gonna write parodies like he does, you should at least have the common decency to be a geek with no life). Anyhow, I took the helm, started picking a different author (in most cases, one new to the site) each week in an attempt to highlight their work and make them feel 'special' and that was that. Around mid-2004, the SOTM tournament started coming into it's own as a force to give authors the extra exposure that they craved. And it seemed to be more effective at doing it than the 'Appreciation Week' too. So long story short, the success of the tournaments was why the Appreciation Week went away... that and I got lazy and no one else expressed interest in keeping it going (There kinda wasn't a point now that authors could take their own initiative and join the tournaments). So if you were interested in what the 'Appreciation Week' is/was, there ya go. And if you weren't interested, then why are you still reading this?

Lots of people weren't... if you're that worried, you could always write your own - maybe a parody to "The Elements" would be the place to start.  But even that's not long enough: there's 103 elements mentioned in the song, and 399 authors with ten or more parodies... but think about it: there's a huge number of potential votes if you can name 'em all ;-)

since on both occasions I've been used to show either undeserved favoritism or unfair treatment/lack of deserved recognition for other writers I think that from this point on my name should be coined as a phrase with a sub-text meaning, i.e., "You were Paul Robinson'd" - would mean that for some reason you did not receive equal recognition to another writer.  Conversely,  someone could say, "Whose  ;)ss did you kiss to get the 'Paul Robinson' treatment, I've been here just as long as you...and my stuff is just as good...or better."




In fact, Paul, there's a whole "Paul Robinson Institute" dedicated entirely to calibrating this phenomenon

see my parody today "The Paul Robinsoning Institute"

You're very welcome Kristof. You honor me. You took to the atmosphere of this place faster than most as I remember.

It's kinda funny actually. You guys are the ones who flourished here and grew yourselves into (amiright) house-hold names. I just yelled your name really loud for one week because I liked your stuff and I remember how hard it was getting a reputation and original exposure on the site, mostly because I was still doing it at the time.

(The brief history of a weekly happening that took place from late 2003 to mid-2004 is to follow)

It was October 2003 and this guy I didn't know named Spaff.com came up with this idea to have appreciation weeks. He did one for MooRocca and one for Rick D. Then I took up the job of deciding who got a week because despite Spaff's best efforts to be a geek with no life, he still to this day seems to have a life to tend to (Which always bothered me; I mean if your gonna write parodies like he does, you should at least have the common decency to be a geek with no life). Anyhow, I took the helm, started picking a different author (in most cases, one new to the site) each week in an attempt to highlight their work and make them feel 'special' and that was that. Around mid-2004, the SOTM tournament started coming into it's own as a force to give authors the extra exposure that they craved. And it seemed to be more effective at doing it than the 'Appreciation Week' too. So long story short, the success of the tournaments was why the Appreciation Week went away... that and I got lazy and no one else expressed interest in keeping it going (There kinda wasn't a point now that authors could take their own initiative and join the tournaments). So if you were interested in what the 'Appreciation Week' is/was, there ya go. And if you weren't interested, then why are you still reading this?


Thanks for all your work on Appreciation Week, Glen. I think there's still room for it: for new writers, it takes some cojones to go up against the big boys (and gals) in SOTM and ABCs, and I think that it would encourage them to keep writing (as it did for me). I'd be happy to take it on for a while if someone could tell me how to connect to "News and Events" on the front page.....

Actually, it can be EITHER someone believing they are being 'dissed' in comparison with someone that they believe they are at least equal to and possibly superior to in whatever subject or area is being evaluated OR receiving POSSIBLY undeserved praise or mention(i.e., meaning "undeserved" according to the perception of another person)...but gaining positive notoriety from it (so far, anyway...).  For instance, to go back to my original example:

"  :) WOW!! Once again I'm pleased and humbled to find myself used to exemplify undeserved favoritism...I'm sure you all will agree that no one more rightly deserves this honor...  8)

Hmmm...and since on both occasions I've been used to show either undeserved favoritism or unfair treatment/lack of deserved recognition for other writers I think that from this point on my name should be coined as a phrase with a sub-text meaning, i.e., "You were Paul Robinson'd" - would mean that for some reason you did not receive equal recognition to another writer.  Conversely,  someone could say, "Whose    ;)  ss did you kiss to get the 'Paul Robinson' treatment, I've been here just as long as you...and my stuff is just as good...or better."

Note, too, the BOLD-FACING employed to gather further attention...

So, does anyone have any more deserving "Parody Artists" to mention who have not previously been acknowledged or does this thread now exist solely as a platform for further Self-aggrandizement on my part?   ;)

Mind you, I'm perfectly OK with that - have found it rather fun to play with...but if by any chance anyone wants to put forth more names some folks might find that a refreshing change...It's likely I can manufacture more of the above "S-A" should a ripe phrase or opportunity arise ~ ~ ~
