Subject: Artistry 2 Round 140 (Toto) Vote by 12/11/18 CANCELLED

Written By: ThaConqueror on 11/27/18 at 11:03 pm

As stated prior to this thread, VOTING is worth points.  If you vote and did not enter this contest, you will get 3 points towards the overall 5 year standings in the Artistry contest.  When you vote as an entrant in this round, you receive 5 points for voting. . .that means no one who votes ends with no points. . . .

Anyway, the rules are pretty similar to other contests.  This is round 140 so please know that ALL rounds will count EQUALLY toward the final standings, and NO rounds will be omitted from the final total.

1. All participants must comment on all entrants and vote by the deadline.  Failure to vote will forfeit all points from this round, and if that is less than 20 points, the difference will be forfeited in the following round (No Disqualifications)

2. Voting will take place by replying to this thread

3. 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.

4. Once a vote is posted, it cannot be changed UNLESS rule 3 applies OR there was a double-vote by accident.

5. Late entries will be accepted until the 1st vote has been posted.

6. 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.

7. We ask that any entrant who posts a link to his/her original song (source of parody) not be DKTOS for the contest.

8. All other basic competition rules as applied in other competitions are generally followed.  The rules may not be changed or altered unless two/thirds of those voting in a round where a rule change is requested agrees.  Rules may be added by host (Below Average Dave) if it was a rule in the ABC or SOTM contest that was thought to be common knowledge, but not known by a particular entrant.

Deadline:
EST (New York) December 11th at 11:59:59.9999999
Central (St. Louis): December 11th at 11pm
Mountain (Denver): December 11th at 10pm
Pacific (Los Angeles): December 12th at 9pm
Sydney, AUS: December 12th at 4pm
The UK: December 12th at 5am

I think you guys should put a fork in it, it's done. (And I admit this is much my fault as anyone else's)

Agreed with Agrimorfee.

Artistry was a hit but Artistry 2 died...

Sorry guys!!

Listen, why not just move all of the remaining artists we have to the FB page? Do it as a monthly or midmonthly challenge. Forget about the point tallies. I would be more likely to hop in if the spirit moves me (as it would others). It would be great as an ongoing thing, and hell, it doesn't even have to be called Artistry (although the familiarity of the "brand" might be favorable to the veterans).

On the other hand, you aren't doing FB, are you TCOP? I know Peter doesn't care to.

Well, I'm on Facebook, but I definitely don't use Facebook. That involves social interaction, and as an Aspergian, I tend to suck at that.

I'm sad to see it go, but given how the original Aristry had 140 rounds, it is fitting that it's put out of its misery here. Here are the remaining artists, do with them as you wish:

Primus
Powderfinger
Good Charlotte round
Nelly Furtado
Katy Perry
Colbie Caillat
T-Pain
Ludacris
James Brown
Chris Brown
Sweet
Heart
Split Enz
Annie Lennox/Eurythmics
Chicago
fun.
Sublime
The Clash
Gogol Bordello

I had no idea you were an Aspie (my son is), but I am not totally surprised--there lots of authors on the spectrum at AIR, it seems.  8)

I am sure I would commit to Gogol Bordello (since I added them) and Primus. My Kendrick DNA today parody got me pumped to do another rapper like Ludacris or T-Pain. Matty, I nominate you to be in charge of whatever we do with this list of very viable artists.
