Subject: June 2009 SOTM RESULTS POSTED

Written By: Below Average Dave on 07/08/09 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, while all points will be forfeited, an entrant who has been disqualified may still participate next month if (s)he goes back and comments on all entrants from the month (s)he got disqualified prior to the end of the entry field (s)he is trying to get involved in.

~~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. and so on
If the points total and votes are identical, it will be left as a legitimate tie

~~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, no exceptions.

~~A medal known as the FUCA shall be awarded to the highest ranking parody which did not make the month's podium and is of an original song which has not previously earned any medal

I've got only two more parodies left to check out; I need a lot of time to devote to "American Pie" since it's such a long song.

Good luck to everybody! :)

Subject: Re: June 2009 SOTM Voting Thread

Written By: ChrisBodilyTM on 07/26/09 at 8:53 pm

I have now checked out each parody, and now I need a few minutes or so to suck it all in and decide my final votes.

Again, good luck to everybody! :)

Okay, I'm ready:

This was too tough of a month. There were some I didn't want to leave off, but it gets so tough.

Honorable mentions:

Britney didn't quite make the cut with me this time, unfortunately.  :-\\ I laughed my ass off with it, though.

Conqueror made shopping chaotic this month, with some of the slickest rhymes I could imagine anyone coming up with.

Peter put his blood, sweat, and tears into his sendup of Hinder.

Kim Jong "Mentally" Il was properly parodied by Mark Scotti.

And. Of course, we. Have. The. Shat man. This. Month. I was hoping the top five would be a battle of Kirk vs. Spock, but oh well...  ;D

1 glove to Silver Power
2 more gloves for the icy cold summer that Matthias has to endure
3 pounds of hot dogs to Weird Abbot
4 phasers to Arwen (Funny, I once did a parody of “Stairway” that crossed over LOTR,, Star Trek, and the Flintstones! :D)
5 dawns to the (un)dead

This will be my last SOTM for a while. I’m kinda slow with writing new parodies, anyway. I’ve got a lot on my hands already, and I’m keeping busy.

Good luck to everybody, that’s all that really matters, right? :)

Almost missed the deadline because at the moment I can only sit up straight for like an hour at a time (don't worry though, I'll get better soon), maybe I've collected some bad karma for postponing commenting and voting to the last minut too many times, still I made it so here's my list of good karma for good parodies this that month:

1 Point: "It's Summer But I'm Wearing Gloves"

2 Points: "Shopping Is Spastic"

3 Points: "I'm Tasteless"

4 Points: "Bill Shatner"

5 Points: "Falsies Brunhilde"

PS. I'll do the FUCA Award update next weekend if all else holdes together so don't worry about it not getting done right away tomorrow.

Thanks.  I think the Geo would be hanging from them, and not the other way around.
