i HATE going against my word but...

Entrants have 1 more week, THAT IS ALL! No JOKING or CHANGES this time! Pieces are due 8th of MAY! people who have sent me there pieces have the extra week as well as the chance of the extra point each, might sound unfair but they put the effort in to get the pieces to me, thank you #1 Synth/Retribution and Daemokia/Demonicity,

SO HURRY UP, GET TO IT

I'll set up the tournament after that It'll be a knockout Tournament something like 1v8, 2v7 etc and then the winners will go on etc etc... unless anyone has any better ideas... I spose i could just post them all and then put up a poll and simply have a winner chosen from that... What would you guys prefer? a round-robin sort of thing or just All-on-All single match comp?

Ok, so the rules are as follows

1. Songs must be written by 2 REAL PEOPLE FROM THIS SITE, no more, no less.

2. Songs must be ORIGINAL, doesn't really need to be said but just in case...

3. Voting for yourself is not allowed, again this is just incase

4. All Polls must be public.

That's about it for the moment i can't htink of anything else that might be needed... if i think of anything i'll add it later

ok, Partners are as Follows...

1. The Me Effect & Auals
2. Furtherfan21 & Dashboard89
3. Thembones16 & Diminishedfaith *lol*
4. #1 Synth & Retribution
5. Prove I Did It & FTN
6. Demonika & Demonicity
7. Pumkins_Rule & frd_marshll
8. HendrixEdge & ThePickups
9. Strat_Player & Wanttobebetter
10. Trigfunction & SilenceEvolves

Hope you guys don't mind me running it and being in it...

Anyway... who wants in?

Ok, for this first one, we're allowed to choose partners... if we hold another one later then i'll run it with random partners, but for the sake of my sanity and the amount i use this site, i'll make it choose your own partner.

yawn
04-10-2006, 01:54 AM
Eh, I can't really imagine myself writing lyrics with someone else. It's much too personal for me...

Can I make up my own partner?

His name is Jimmy... Jimmy Velasquizo \m/

hey i'm in, but a kinda need a partner, so if anybody else needs a partner you know where to find me (and if you dont a simple PM will suffice)

Prove_i_Did_It

I'll do it, I think i have a partner. Let me get back to you on that.

furtherfan21
04-10-2006, 02:52 PM
also (i'm aware i'm doing this but) i think it'd be better if you just randomly paired people together in stead of them choosing just a thought.

04-10-2006, 03:22 PM
I agree with him

thembones16
04-10-2006, 03:24 PM
I think we should be able to choose our own partners,but its up to auals.

#1 synth
04-10-2006, 03:26 PM
hmm, ya i think furthers right, otherwise the people who never work with each other are at a fairly huge disadvantage. Also, it add an extra element of teamwork and the such-like to it, makes the contest more interesting. But, do the contest however you wanna. :)

Great comp idea.By the way.

In. You shouldn't be aloud to choose your partner, it would be better if you collaberated with someone you don't know.

Anymore Takers?

Dashboard89
04-11-2006, 04:59 PM
does it have to be duet, like a duet piece with two parts going back and forth together, or just a piece written by two people?

Either or, it's up to you, when i write with someone two parts going back and forth, but i'm trying (well me and The_Me_Effect) are trying to write one that's just written by two people...

I know that when it's just one piece written by two people that doesn't have any distinct *i wrote this part, they wrote this part* things then it makes it harder to sound like a group effort but hopefully people here can work as a team and counter these problems... unless you guys want a distinct answer?

#1 synth
04-12-2006, 09:59 AM
either or is fine with me, adds another layer of difficulty to the writing.

furtherfan21

nonsense. Bands write songs together all the time. Two different imputs will make the song stand out as group effort.

just call it partner comp next time though..because duet just doesn't really make it clear, duet is like the "whole new world" in Alladin.

But bands write after 1 person has either written a basis for a song or the main theme, the song is FINISHED as a band based around a central idea or music

You don't have music and your band is someone who you have to write the song with, from a central theme that you both agree on it's not one person going "this is the idea, write about it" it's a group effort... bands don't normally (yeah i said normally so don't give me examples of bands that do) write a song from scratch and all agree on an idea, the LYRICIST from each band writes a song and the others fix it up...

Anyway, anymore partners? still loooking for a partner for Pumpkins_rule...

furtherfan21
04-13-2006, 11:10 AM
I actually like that whole newworld song in alladin. haha i'll admit it. and not always does one person write the lyrics.I guess it will never be clear because a lot of the bands only say song written by:gibbard/walla/harmer or something and song is very vague so it wouldbe the whole thing or just the lyrics. However Relient K i know has it written by: Thiessen and Hoopes. as in the lyrics. SOi think it's unfair to say normalyl when to my knowledge neitherof you have been in a real band anyways. (not saying that i have or anything)

Glen and I; intend to participate, so lock up your daughters and your sons; our asexual anthemic ballad shall prove to be an untimely contradiction of gargantuan proportions.

Edit: that would be The Pickups.

frd_marshll, you can go with Pumpkins_Rule if that's ok with you two?

And HendrixEdge & The Pickups? far out... everyone beware the dream team has arrived...

sry trig, i accidently deleted your PM before i got a chance to respond and i think me and Ret are already pretty deep in our partnership to work together this time around. Anyway, you wanna do a duet piece sometime just for fun? I think it could turn out rather excellently.

It?s nice to see that our burgeoning politburo is par for course; general functionality will soon be applicable to a disparate plethora of circumstances.

In the words of one Mr David Bowie:

?Let?s Dance.?

Diminishedfaith
04-15-2006, 01:40 PM
I think we should go knockout

and in the finals i think the teams should write new songs that with what they entered with.

like the last 3 pairings have to write new material

Ok guys... i've only got 3 bands pieces so far (thanks Daemonika & #1 Synth for sending), plus i've just realised (because i had school today) that the tourney was meant to start as a school started which i can't keep up with... so you guys have 1 more week... i'm sorry to you people who stuck to the timeline and haven't yet decided but i'm thinking of (if i'm allowed too) allocating either one point to the people in the pairs who sent theirs up (excluding mine and Ally's(the_me_effect) naturally) or whether i should give them an extra point if they come a place...

Anyway... point allocation is thus

1. 10* points
2. 8* points
3. 4* points
4. 2* points

*points are split between teams

Anyway... NEXT WEEK GUYS... PIESCES ARE DUE NEXT WEEK OTHERWISE THE ENTRIES I HAVE WILL BE PUT IN A COMP FOR FIRST/SECOND/THIRD AND THAT IS THAT... GAME OVER... FIN...

so happy writing... any queries may be pm'd to ME
