Subject: December 2009 SOTM Voting Thread--Results Posted!

Written By: jreuben on 01/08/10 at 9:11 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

DJ Blaze has been on the site for about a year and already has won a SOTM?! Against tough competition too (lots of veterans this month)
My hat's off to you sir, It took me about 3 years to win a SOTM

Congrats to the steady competition of Below Average Dave and Jeff Reuben who have had their moment in the spotlight many, many times.

I always have a hard time with BoRap parodies because IMHO it's the worst original song in the history of music, hence hard to appreciate even the best parodies of it, or maybe I'm just getting cranky in my old age, I can't tell so maybe I'm getting demented too, who knows? Anyway, congrats to DJB,JR and BAD for the medals, and since I'm sure Cypress Hill have never medaled before also to Red Ant for the FUCA, his first I belive. (I'll update the list later this week).

WHAT?! I WON?!?!?! WOOOOHOOOOO!!!! I seriously thought I would take 2nd, because I tallied up the scores mentally and I thought Jeff won. Thank you all for your votes, and congrats to Reuben and Dave as well.

Congrats to DJ Blaze and BAD!  I believe that's the first time a Bohemian Rhapsody has medalled (much less won gold).

Well, up until two months ago that was true but it medalled for the first time last month when Silver Power won the gold (!) with Ovarian Rhapsody.  :P

Statistics expert B.A.D might wanna correct me on this once his new all things SOTM page is up and complete but I think the only OS to serve as the platform for a SOTM gold parody two months in a row before this would be "Be Our Guest".
