Subject: ABC Round 123(and symbols) Voting

Written By: jreuben on 03/09/05 at 7:55 am

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 Wednesday, March 16th:

1.  MooRocca 50 Ways To Kill Osama

2.  Adagio 'Fraid I See Weirdly Now

3.  Johnny D 23

4.  Martha DTox 50 Ways To Lose Your Money

5.  Stu McArthur 99 Rubber Boobs

6.  Mike Armstrong 1925

7.  Paul Robinson 49 Geezers

8.  Neminem 33.6 Modem

3 points - #3 - Johnny D - “23”

2 points - #4 - Martha DTox  - “50 Ways To Lose Your Money”

1 point - #9-  Guy Dorito – “3 COM Mice”

Thanks, Adagio!  Congratulations to you and Stu and Kristof too!  ;D

Thanks to everybody who voted for my pseudo-numerological-silliness!

And many thanks to Jeff Reuben for running the contest.

Congrats to all.  I apologize, for some reason I thought the contest ended at the end of the month; just saw the March 16 deadline.  I'll sit out the next one.
Nice job all.

Great job everybody! Especially to everybody who got at least one point (everybody but me, I think?  ;D)

You totally deserved that win, Kristof.

Written By: Kristof Robertson on 03/19/05 at 4:11 am

Jeez...I honestly thought Stuart's tits would win it! Congrats to Johnny D, whose knowledge of weird numeral facts frankly scares me...to Adagio, whose left-of-centre poetic style always impresses me.....and to Lord McArthur, The Marquis of Melbourne...the Aussies are taking over....again! Great job everyone, and thanks Jeff for all your hard work...I'd also like to thank my manager, the make-up team, and of course, the director...oops, wrong contest! Looking forward to the rest of the ABC competition; it's a great chance to dust of some "oldies" and give 'em a run around the park....I'll shut up now, except to say thanks for the support! Bye!!

Nope, YOU & ME, Charlie D...the OLD & the YOUNG...I'm honored to share a spot in the foundation of this platform with you...Anyway, being in this one helped get a little more attention to one of the first 10 pieces I posted here, so it accomplished pretty much what I wanted.  I remember laughing all the way through as I was writing it.  I remember everything on that first CSN album so well that it's ALMOST hard to believe so many people don't know any of it...but...it did come out in NINETEEN-SIXTY-NINE - almost 36 years ago!  Older than many of the writers here!  OWW ~ ~ ~ Yeah, and where I work now there's maybe only one person within 10 years of me...about 15 to the next oldest...when I mention songs I like I get a lot of blank stares...I think they wince when they ask me what "new groups" I listen to an without thinking much I say "Well, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, they're really good"...duh...they've been around more than 20 years now!
