Subject: Ages of Amiright 2 (Round 2) (Votes Totalled)

Written By: Matthias on 01/07/09 at 9:30 am

Rules

1. Vote for your top 5 favorite songs in the order in which you like them the most.
2. Don't use "DKTOS" as an excuse, there's a Youtube link for a reason.
3. Make sure you get your votes in by the midnight of the 25th
4. If you don't vote you won't be able to get the 5 extra points for voting, thus if you're in first place you might move down to third or fourth in tight contests.
5. You can't vote for your own song.
6. You must also comment on every parody.

I guess this isn't directed at a specific person, but  >:( . I'll try my best to make it by the deadline, but I was operating under the 31st for the past few weeks.

Sorry about the confusion guys, I would like it if you could all enter by the 21st, BUT if you need an extention on the date I guess I can work something out, maybe by a few days or something.

That's only if it comes down to it though, I would still hope that everyone enters by the 21st.

Voting by the 21st is the least of my problems.  I can't believe how much trouble I'm having with freaking round 3.  OH MY GOSH!!!  I'm going insane.

I know what you mean... I thought the topic would have been easy, but no.... This round is going to be rough.

I will be voting at some point today (21st) regardless. . .but having finished major improvements over at my site, updating my AmIRight sections,  posting a parody for tomorrow (not related to any contests) and reading some awesome parodies at amiright.com, I am exausted so I can't get to it before bed (at time of writing it is 2:19AM)

Matty, while I knew the deadline was today, personal opinion is to extend it 'til Monday so that those who really though it was the 31st don't get disqualified by technicality, I would do the same on the entry thread if more than say two people have not yet entered next round.

I'd hate a good portion of the field to miss out on an easy topic, and one that I am deer too (I'd say probably one in every 12 or 13 parodies I write is about Wealth in some way or another (usually the lack thereof) and Fame/Power only expand that horizon to be even more inclusive)

Regardless I'll take care of my stuff before the original deadline, but I vote to allow an extension since some people got confused by the two different deadlines they saw, I"m really loving this comp Matty, keep it up.

Yeah, That sounds good...

There's not really that many people partaking in this contest yet, and that's a shame really...

So I'll extend it to the 25th instead, which is Monday.

HM to Invisible Boy, Jeff Reuben and TCOP

1 Point to 2nz  (despite being a list parody, it's an impressive parody)

2 Points to Luke Bratoni (With two parodies of the same song about the same topic, it's funny that your parody had nothing else in common with Jeff's)

3 Points to Melanie Lee (You continue to impress, great lines about and spot on karaoke perfect pacing)

4 Points to Arwen (Lady Arwen doesn't seem to take a break from perfection--ever)

5 Points to Matthias (Honestly, songs of this length give so much room to work that as a write, it allows for one hell of a story--or one hell of a flop--good thing is Matthias you were definitely on the good side--hence my top vote)

I'll be back, I just needed a breather. I got a good idea from my girlfriend, but haven't found an OS that works yet. Anyhow, this is really surprising considering the distribution of points. Thanks everybody, karmas for you all for making these contests so enjoyable.

And well played Matt and Dave. Photo finish. I guess my nose was longer this time around. You're karmas are glowing and happy-faced. And thanks again for your work in hosting Matt.
