Subject: ABC 2010 (I/J) RESULTS POSTED

Written By: Below Average Dave on 06/15/10 at 5:57 am

ABC 2010
(I and J)


Please note that the rule changes I suggested last year all passed, most of them unanimously, and the others by a wide margin, all new rules will be in bold text like this

- Any parody beginning with either of the current letters is eligible, except parodies that have been entered into any previous ABC competition
- You're not allowed to vote for your own parody
- Once you've posted a vote, you're not allowed to change it
- Anyone who's participated in any previous ABC contest may vote
- Any entrant who hasn't left a comment on all entries will forfeit all their points for that round


-All letters are to be combined into thirteen rounds (A/B, C/D, E/F etc) and numbers will go by their spelling (IE. "10 Candles" would qualify as a "T" entry being that ten is the spelling of 10).  Symbols will generally be ignored, and go by the remaining spelling instead (IE '**Love' would qualify as an L or '^#% 72' would qualify as an S) eliminating the need for the specialty round at the end of the competition.  In the event that symbols are clearly used to take the place of actual words, the word intended may be used (IE @$$hole can be used in A) and in the event that the name of a song is a symbol, the spelling of said symbol may be used (IE '*' would be asterisk-an A entry)

-3 week entry and voting periods

- 5 points for voting (only applicable to entrants who are required to vote) (also known as the Artistry rule, all those who vote and are in the round will have 5 points added to their score for that round)

-All Scores Count towards your totals for the tournament

-DQ's only dq the current round's score, in other words you will no longer have to sit out the next letter since you will always be forfeiting points when you don't vote (hence the 5 point bonus rule)

-Top entry for each letter (2 per round) makes the year end competition (Exception: if all entries in a given round are of the same letter, or no entry from either letter earned at least one point through voting, the top two overall for the round will be selected for the year end competition)

-No Extensions may be granted due to the length of the new voting periods (if you aren't positive you can vote in the last three days, you should vote early), late entries up until the first vote are at the mercy of whoever is currently hosting the ABC competiton, this is not meant for strictness as much as time, 3 weeks is a lot of time, and extending past that messes up the dates and can cause ABCs to overlap into other contests who may have planned around it to avoid conflicts of deadlines

1st Place: Below Average Dave (you've seriously been on one hell of a role lately buddy, you're turning into Spaff)
2nd Place: Abbott (You're one of the few people on this site that sticks mostly to modern songs and that's NOT impossible to like)
3rd Place: Agrimorfee (Another great one in your Big Seven mockery!)
4th Place: Christie Marie M (Another great country based "Just Dance" song. Who will write the next one I wonder?)
5th Place: Conqueror of Parodies (Such a crazy and bizarre idea perfectly written out!)

5 points to CMM- her parody will bring out the Francophile in all of us.
4 points to Conqueror- be one's color blue, gold, khaki, mauve, jade or cream, or something entirely different, your parody delivers the goods.
3 points to B.A. Dave- the parody reveals everything good and nothing bad.
2 points to DJ Blaze- the teenage years are tough but are good parody and comedy material, and you tell your at least semi-true story well here.
1 point to Agrimorfee- random stuff, both AIR-related and otherwise, makes a good parody when done right. You did it right.  :)

Honorable mentions to Mark Scotti and Abbott Skelding.

I'm afraid I'm gonna have to miss this round. We're leaving on vacation for 4 days tomorrow and it's helter-skelter preparations right now. I'm also on a hiatus right now.

This is the ABC not the SOTM Guy... Although I see Christie winning one of those very soon!
