I know it seems early...but it's time to start getting into the Crimbo spirit! And what better way to do it? What's better then belting out your favorite (or perhaps not so adored) Crimbo Carol, recording it and then sending it to ADH...hoping against ALL hope that you... YES YOU *points* could win fabulous meat and prizes?

It's that time again, Folks! Starting today, Wednesday, November 21st, 2007, email ADeadHeart (ADeadHeart@gmail.com) to request your song. Please include your player name in the email. If you don't know your player name, you should probably ask Uncle Crimbo for a nice place to spend the holidays. Perhaps with pretty, padded walls...? Make sure to include Yuletide Crimbo Skaraoloke! in the email subject line. It may be several days before you receive your song.

All songs will be chosen by ADeadHeart. Song switching will not be allowed. You will be sent a song that is traditionally (or perhaps not so traditionally) sung during the Crimbo Season. You may not know the song. ADeadHeart is NOT responsible for sending the lyrics along with the MP3. ADeadHeart is not responsible for sending out the original version of the song. Skaraoke tracks will be sent out until Friday, December 7th.

Deadline for complete songs to be in ADeadHeart's gmail, preferrably in MP3 format, is Wednesday, December 12th. Contest show will be held upon receipt of all entries at a date and time that will be chosen in the future. Check back here for updates on contest show date and time. NO late entries will be excepted. (If you need help with track mixing, please post here.)

As in the past, winning is NOT based on vocal talent, though this is certainly considered as bleeding ears are not often kind. Be amusing, be poignant...sing drunk, sober, with the assistance of several helium filled balloons. Doesn't matter. Have FUN! (Please note: changing the occasional lyric IS ok...but this is NOT a parody contest.)

ADeadHeart will pick the first place winner based soley on her own opinion and on the reaction of the listeners currently in Radio Chat. Listeners will vote on runners up in a manner not yet decided. Hopefully, we will use CDMoyer's voting form from the last contest.

(To clarify, you MUST record your own voice along with the MP3 you receive and then send the completed track to ADeadHeart@gmail.com. Again, MP3 format is preferred.)

Prizes so far include but are not limited to the following:
Crimbo and misc items worth millions (yeah...I'm lazy this time)

(An updated list of items will be posted as more donations are made.)

Thanks to all who have donated so far! If you would like to donate, please send any meat or items (preferably but not limited to Crimbo) to ADH (player ID 681173) with a note stating that it is a Skaraoke Contest donation.

DJs CAN and are encouraged to enter, and will be able to win a separate set of prizes, as in the last contest. ADeadHeart has withdrawn herself from this competition but may enter a song simply for amusement purposes.

Skaraoke Contests continue to grow and a great time is had by all...so get those emails coming!


<X3 ADH

Please note:

Please don't request a song if you are not going to try and record it. It takes the song out of the rotation for another contestant to attempt. Also...don't give up if you don't know the song! That's half the fun! Just wing it. Improvise! There are TONS of lyrics sites on line if all that keeps you from trying is a lack of lyrical knowledge!

I think that's a byproduct of posting a clickable email link, ADH, not deliberate prankster forumgoers. Scripts that go and sign people up like that. It's why many people post their email by saying something like "Send email to ADeadHeart (at) gmail dot com"

Over 41,236,717 Million Meat worth of Crimbo Stuff to give away. I don't suppose that guilt trips any of you into some last minute entries?

Have a look at the Crimbo Skaraoke shelf in ADH's Display Case...I'm adding more even now...better hurry. Show's tomorrow. New familiars, Mr. Accessories, Radio Free items, random items...I might even just throw some meat away. Not that half of you were interesting in that sort of thing.

No... of course not...

*grins*

Congratulations to EVERYone who entered this year! The winners are:

Listener's DJ Choice: The DREAD Pirate Wesley - All I Want for X-Mas is My Two Front Teeth

ADH's Choice: BewareMyBrain - Ave Maria

Listener's Choice:

1st Place - geekrockgirl85 - Silent Night
2nd Place - LdySaphyre - Christmas Day
3rd Place - BluePearls - Santa Baby

Beware will have first choice from ADH's Crimbo Skaraoke Shelf and then we will move down until the shelf is sad and lonesome and empty. Make sure y'all get your kmails to ADH in order to request what you'd like.

Thank you all so very much for making this happen.

The show was recorded. If it's hosted, I will post the information here and on the ADH Radio Wiki. Skaraoke Wiki info will be updated shortly. <3!
