Subject: May SOTM 2010 RESULTS POSTED

Written By: Below Average Dave on 06/09/10 at 12:39 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

Indeed. I'll get my votes in sometime before the deadline. And I'm listening to the OSes.

5 points to #2 "Look At All the Stuff I Can Do With My Telephone" by Abbott Skelding.
This one won me over big time. It started kinda bland, almost like a name dropping (or should that be app dropping?) list parody without any real humour. Then there was this "where I can take a pee within a five state radius" passage that almost felt plausible, then the "cure for cancer" and from there on it just took off into hilarity. It was a perfect build up for the subject. You get better for every month right now Abbott, I'll be surprised if you don't win at least one round before this year is over.

4 points to #8 "ShamWow" by DJ Blaze.
Never heard of ShamWows before but this was a really good use of the original song and a good gadget parody, the sub genre that I've come to appreciate more and more lately. 555 (but I had to google Billy Mays too).

3 points to #3 "All My Personalities" by Below Average Dave.
Kudos for an original idea, gotta be releaving to be able hand over parts of the writing to other parts of yourself. That said it didn't fully work for me as a written text to sing along to over an OS alone, but I can vividly see this one with an additional bunch of visual gags in a future parody song VIDEO contest (And if that ever happens you just gotta work in Christie Marie M's comment "Will the real B.A.D please stand up").

2 points to #1 "Enter Sandwich" by Matthias.

For such a long original song Enter Sandman offers surprisingly little to work with but you buttered it up pretty well here. As it did for bobpiecheese my mind drifted off to Killer Tomatoes reference territory, not necessarily a bad thing, though I think white bread are more likely to attack from within a person's body. :-)

1 point to #6 "Jer sey Jer sey" by Mark Scotti.
I don't really care about the subject in any way but I still recognise a good use of an original song when I see/hear it and on top of that it sure was a surprise to find out that you've recorded this and put it up on YouTube. Pretty good voice you have too.

Honorable Mentions (In Order Of Appearance):

#4 "B-Movie Schlock" by The Conqueror of Parodies.
Gotta love those great bad movies, BTW, the best bad movies in the world are made by Troma: http://www.troma.com/movies. One day I gotta write one myself about the Toxic Avenger.

#5 "Pokemon" by Charnstar.

I'm all for puns about anything but here I'm totally lost, seeing that I don't really know sheeshe about the subject before those puns began to begin with.

I'd like to tell you that I'm not gonna tell you that I told you that I saw this coming, but me being me (can't you tell) I'm not gonna be able to tell myself to refrain so I'll just say it to ya'll that that lyrical telltale app was a must deserved win, didn't I tell you so?
