Time to catch the downtown train in the neighbourhood with Tom Waits!

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

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.

I want to do a parody of "A Little Drop of Poison" because I heard it and know this guy all because of Shrek but I don't know what rhymes with poison... Toilet, Soylent, Moistened, Prison, Bison, Raisins... I don't know!!!!

A quick trip to Rhymezone gave me buoyant, annoyance, avoidance, employment and enjoyment, there could be something in one of those.

In other news, I've picked "Hang On St. Christopher" and am planning to tell a tale of lies and forgery. Stay tuned for "That's Not My Signature"!

Thanks for that...

Somebody should do a parody of "What's He Building" (It's a super creepy poem as read by Tom Waits) and it's awesome!

I'm leaning toward "Hell Broke Luce"...not 100% on a topic yet, though.

Is that pronounced "loos"?
Goose, spruce, cous-cous

Or "looz"?
Booze, snooze, blues, dues

Or "loo-say"?
Lucille Ball has been a topic ;)

Haha, I think I'm gonna go with something along the lines of "Juice"...to go with the current phenomena of juicing vegetables and "healthy" smoothies.
Now I just gotta find the time to write it...working 60 hours next week MIGHT just kill me.

Write about that! I'm sure we'd all enjoy it.
