Subject: April SOTM Voting Thread; voting closed, results posted

Written By: Red Ant on 05/08/06 at 2:45 am

Note to new participants: Welcome, and good luck. Please read all guidelines carefully. Especially, please make sure to read all the entries and vote by the end of the month. The SOTM is not so much a contest as a feedback exchange. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, either in this thread or via personal message. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

~~Vote by replying to this thread with your five favorites in order:
1st choice- 5 points
2nd place- 4 points
3rd place- 3 points
4th place- 2 points
5th place- 1 point.

~~You're not allowed to vote for your own song.

~~Once you've posted a vote, you're not allowed to change it.

~~Voting continues until the last day of the month ends.

~~Anyone who's participated in a SOTM contest may vote.

~~By entering, you are agreeing to read and comment on all the other entries and vote.

~~Anyone who enters but does not both comment on all entries and vote by the end of the month is disqualified and may not participate next month.

~~In the event of a tie, the parody with the most first place votes wins.
If it's still tied, the parody with the most second place votes wins.
If it's still tied, a brief playoff round will be held.
All participants will have the first week of the month to choose one favorite from among the tied entries.
Tiebreaker voting is strongly encouraged but not required. On the eighth day the one with the most votes win.

I've finally read all of the parodies (I only had to read the last-minute parody, "Idiot Drivers"), but I'm beat from completing the final installment of Nickelodeon Idiot. So, I'm gonna look over my top favorites and evaluate which one deserves the title for April. And I've seen some outstanding parodies this month.

Good luck to everybody! :)

After reading through another month of excellent submissions, I have concluded that I must invent trans-dimensional math so that I can fit a dozen or so parodies into my top five. In the meantime, however, I am stuck with having to choose only five.

Congrats guys on a super month: IMO the best this year (and I'm not just saying that, Stu: as I'm writing this, I've got nine songs that I want to give points to).  Interesting, too, in two similar-but-different takes on "50 Ways", as well as two super BJ/We didn't start the fire parodies.  A shame to whittle it down to 5 - especially sorry to Arwen, whose "50 Days" I really thought was going to be in my top three, at least till I read the others.

Another great SOTM round. Picking my top 5 was difficult, and putting them in order even more so. Anyway, here are my 5 votes, with a few additional comments:

1 point to #1: I Have A Nasty Case Of Every Virus Bug Conceivable by Cat

A great idea and good execution for a song that is beginning to wear on me. Lots of funny lines and imaginative rhymes.

Congratulations to wannabemustangjockey, Stu and Phil.

Two disqualifications this month: Luke and Mike Armstrong didn't vote in time and forfeit their combined 14 points, and are inelligible to participate in May SOTM.

10 different authors got 1st place votes, which I believe is a new record.

Great round all, and the May SOTM entry thread has been posted. The 2006 Author of the Year points thread should be up in the next week or so.

I wonder how that happened...your parody was very good, not to mention that the OS is one of THE BIG THREE. As some sort of weird coincidence, my entry next month will be based on the same OS...

Well I never... not been around much over the past few days, and thought I'd nip here to see who won.  And I'm not surprised at all at who did: well done both Wannabetc. and Stu.  I can see a few "Fire" parodies turning up this month...

Much bigger surprise was a third place for me :D  Many thanks to all those who voted for George Bush (or his unique way of speaking, anyway).

And sincere apologies for not voting.
(Then, again my votes may have resulted in you three not getting 1st, 2nd and 3rd, so I can't see YOU complaining!  ;) )
