Subject: ABC Round Y Voting -- Voting Closed

Written By: jreuben on 02/07/05 at 9:08 pm

A more precise definition of the 3-2-1 voting (with thanks to Pippin for defining exactly what I didn't get round to):

Each entrant must vote within the allotted timeframe or be liable to the sanction of not voting in the following “XX” number of contests. 

To vote, each entrant must choose three different songs and allocate the following points score:

1st place – 3 points
2nd place – 2 points
3rd place – 1 point

By definition the most votes a song can be allocated by a voter is three points.

Tie-break rule again: in the event that the number of votes is tied, it'll be a draw - we'll have two winners and a third place (or whatever).

All votes must be in by end of play Sunday, that is 13th February (I think):

1.  Jeff Reuben "You're More Like A Brother To Me"

2.  Johnny D "You've Gnoshed Anchovy Pizza"

3.  Rick D "You're Sixteen (uh oh)"

4.  Arwen "You Make Me Feel Like Punching You Patrolman"

5.  Stu McArthur "You Decide"

6.  Agrimorfee "Your Pond/All Frog People"

7.  2nz "Yu-gi-Poke-Dragon-Pika-Mother-F***in-Headaches"

8.  Phil Alexander "You Dork, You Dork"

9.  Adagio "You're A Mess"

10.  Martha DTox "Y2k And All That(2)"

11.  Luke Brattoni "Your Bosses Notes To Get Paid"

12.  Kristof Robertson "Yelp!"

13.  Guy Dorito  "You Know That It's Futile To Resist Us"

You're missing entries from Martha, Kristof, Guy and myself!

That's impressive...you looked between the time I posted/saved the first nine (so I wouldn't lose them by accident!) and putting up the last four...about 2 minutes later.  There all there now  :)

3 points for #6.  Agrimorfee "Your Pond/All Frog People" - makes me laugh out loud - brilliantly weird stuff ...

2 points for #5.  Stu McArthur "You Decide" - ah, the inherent risks of testAusterone ...

1 point for #3.  Rick D "You're Sixteen (uh oh)" - cleverly unveiled the original song's subliminal soundtrack ...

3 points to 2nz
(great rhythm and hit the target perfectly)

2 points to MarthaDTox
(brought the whole Y@K thing back using the perfect OS, and pacing it perfectly)

1 point to Jeff
(for hitting on and representing a poignant truth - no girl can understand how horrible those words are to hear when your teenage hormones are raging)

I haven't participated in the ABCs for quite a few letters (I've been away from the site), but am I still eligible to vote? Assuming I am:


3 pts. to 2nZ, #7 (Perfect pacing, rhythm and message)
2 pts. to Kristof Robertson, #12 (Just plain funny)
1 pt. to Arwen, #4 (I think we've all been there)

3 points has to go to #1 - Jeff's fraternal relationship
2 points to #6 - Agrimorfee's weird froggy thing
1 point to #12 - Kristof's yelping

I wanted to be able to vote for Arwen and MarthaDTox  as well... apart from #1, those four were nearly impossible to choose between - Ag got 2nd place for sheer originality, and Kristof's made me LOL, though... so I guess that's why they came in that order.

3 points - #10, Martha DTox
2 points - #1, Jeff Reuben
1 point  - #6, Agrimorfee

( :D :-\\  :)) <- My before, during, and after faces. I'm not really sure what the order is.
