Subject: Artistry 2 Round 54 (The Residents) Enter by 7/28/15

Written By: ThaConqueror on 07/15/15 at 1:00 am

The Residents are a band that exist, and we're gonna parody songs by 'em! That is the extent of my knowledge.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Artistry Rules For Newcomers:
- If one wishes to enter (entry in all rounds is not compulsory), entry must be written (or selected from back catalog) within two weeks of the posting of the entry thread
- Voting runs during the same two-week period as the next entry thread, so organise your time wisely
- All participants must comment on all entrants and vote by the deadline.  Failure to vote will forfeit all points from that round, but it won't disqualify you from participating in the next round
- Voting will take place by replying to the appropriate voting thread
- If a person withdraws from an Artistry Round prior to the end of a round, all entrants who voted for that person's entry will be permitted to pick one new song to earn a bonus point, all other songs will be realigned accordingly.  There will be no penalty on those who don't change their vote.
- Once a vote is posted, it cannot be changed UNLESS rule 3 applies OR there was a double-vote by accident.
- Late entries will be accepted until the 1st vote has been posted.
- The deadline is a strict deadline, the moment the date has reached the day after the deadline, no votes will count, this is to reduce last minute voting, or sympathy/favoritism towards different entrants.

Using my psychic powers I already have a song written for this round:

"Mean As Gru (The Minion Parody)" parody of "Make Me Moo"

Hoo boy, we are going to have some fun here! This was my selection, and veterans will know that I have parodied one of their albums, plus one song. I am not sure if I will do a new one.

I have created this playlist comprising good lyric-filled songs from their career-span, I truly hope this helps you guys out. For the uninintiated, this band will be very daunting.

EDIT: Wow, Matthias, you posted while I was typing this.  8) I am eagerly anticipating a read-through later.

Wasn't too daunting for me lol

I was originally going to take on the whole "Gingerbread Man" album but I decided against it because that would be CRAZY

Oh man, this is going to be interesting. After listening to "Make Me Moo" for the first time (never heard of this band before today), I don't know if I can top Matty's minions idea...it seems like it'll fit perfectly!

Thanks for the playlist, Grim. It's definitely coming in handy!

EDIT: I'm gonna go with a parody of "Constantinople" about every man's worst nightmare..."Stuck Watching Oprah".

Great tune....word of advice, see what you can do to sub the lead vocalist's ad libs in the coda.

I'm going to have to sit this round out...not to brag or jinx anything, but I'm working on something that could change the world. I'll know if it worked on 8/15/2015

Okay, I have an idea for a parody of "Caring", but it won't be finished tonight. How about an extra few days guys? I'm very sorry abou this. Really struggling with this particular band. Thursday morning at the latest? If it's not up on Thursday morning, go on without me. I'll see you in the round after.
