Subject: SOTM 2008 January Results Posted

Written By: skittlesking on 02/07/08 at 11:17 pm

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 wins.

~~Any entrant whose votes don't show a time stamp prior to midnight on the last day of the month (ie. according to the "inthe00's meantime" clock as it appears BEFORE you log in - not a timezone corrected version) is disqualified, without exception.

It's always the 7th, but I can add an entry for you anyway, because I literally just posted it and it's not as cold hard as the voting deadlines buddy, what January song would you like to enter.

I know it's now not a prob for this month, Dave; but for future reference.....

Cut and pasted from the January SOTM entry thread:

"January 2008
Song Of The Month Contest

~~Entries begin after the last parody update of the month.

~~Any song that is posted on AmiRight during the contest month (this year) is eligible.

~~To enter, reply to this thread with the url of your entry.

~~On the eighth day of the month, entries close and voting begins."

AFAIR, it's always been the 8th, dude.  ;)

Ok, I wonder why I'm so used to it being posted 8th, well any entries added over the next 14 hours will be added to the entry list

In fact, despite it saying that. . .I just checked several months ran by different people--several were posted based on the deadline being 7th, others on the 8th. . .I just remember so many being closed at the end of the 7th, that I had always thought that was the date. . .oh well my misunderstanding

Not quite, I was so impressed with the array of songs I just HAD to get my votes in quick. Normally I leave them to the last minute but decided to get them first.

I know, Jeff Rueben deserves far better than 3 points, but... Matthias and B.A.D. just BLEW me away.. Honourable mentions to Kristof, Agrimorfee, Jack, Jason, Guy and Micheal McVey... Damn, I leave for 6 months, come back to the hardest SOTM I've ever participated in...

Apparently the lawyers of R.E.M aren't shirking because the video for Jason's entry (#11) has been taken off YouTube now. There are other copies off course, but I'll let B.A.D or the author himself suggest a new official one...

Thank God for the 29:th! I would have voted yesterday evening but I was too shaken up after having been chased by Lassie – That's right, Lassie! I was out running when a collie I've never seen before, one not held in a lead by its owner I might add, started running towards me. Having been through this situation before I stopped and sought eye contact with the owner, not the dog, but he was to busy chasing the dog shouting "Stop Lassie!", "Foot Lassie", "Here Lassie" etc. It was not funny at the time, but they both did two laps around me, the dog sidestepping and the owner running/croutchin, before he finally got hold of this Lassie that sure have a long, long way to go before living up to her name.

But I digress… here are my votes in this round:

5 Points: "School For Cats"

4 Points: "Baby Can't Rap"

3 Points: "Hooters Of The Round Table"

2 Points: "Stupidpolysyllabicportmanteauword Psychosis"

1 Point: "Poison I-V"

My congratulations to the winners and my appreciation for all who entered.  

Kristof - For taking the gold - fine job.  You are starting to give Ft Knox competition.
Jeff -   You look good in silver, it becomes you sir.
Matt -- Bronze is good, you've competed quite well.

And my best for all who entered - just writing a parody takes a special skill that not anyone can do.  Mine seemed to have mixed considerations but that is me, I write what I want and my thanks to all who commented on the amiright page.  I read each and every comment and what I liked is that everyone was very candid and honest on their opinion of my entry.  It received 21 total 5 votes across the board.  I'm surprised that nobody put any ones on it which would be about right for something that is controversial.  IMO all the entries in this comp are top notch.  I reviewed each one and gave each one the most honest rating I could.  Each one I would be proud to put my name onto, they were all written that well.  See you all in the next round.   ;)

I too could have sworn you must have medaled earlier at some point! Well, you know what they say, the first cut is the hardest, you'll probably make a habit of it soon enough and by this time two years from now we'll have to send you to the Betty Ford Clinic for 24/7 medal making parodists. (Don't tell anyone but that's where Spaff, Claude and Johnny are nowadays - and Kristof and Stu too, but they have found an intern susceptible to their special down under type of charm and are now taking terms posting from her lap-top, literally and figuratively).

See you all in the next round!  :)

Well, blow me down....what a great thing to happen this early in the year! Thanks everyone for supporting my feline academy; I hoped this would do OK, but didn't expect too much, as the OS is pretty unknown in the States. So, WOW!

Congrats to Sir Reuben of Mirth-ington for a wonderfully ribald romp, and to young Mr. Stovarsky in what's shaping up to be a very good year for him. Well done to all who entered....as Jeff said, the comp keeps on throwing up incredible writing month after month.

I'll be sitting February out, but hope to have something worthy for March....bye!
