  1. RESULTS ARE IN! Runners-Up: Barnsalot & darklink42 1st Place: Imagery Votes were cast as follows: Barnsalot: 4 darklink42: 4 Imagery: 8 just64helpin: 2 - - - - - - - - - - I want to apologize for the long delay, and the radio silence. It was rude of me to make you wait as long as you did, and with no communication. Having 20 credit hours this term has swamped me much more than I expected, and I honestly haven't even been online much in the last few weeks. As I can foresee no slowing down of my life in the next year or so, I will not be hosting any more competitions. It is simply too time-consuming for me to maintain. I don't know if anyone is willing to take over for me full-time, or if you will just share the responsibility, but I trust that the writing competitions won't end as long as there is still a community here. Again, I apologize for the poor handling of this last comp, and I wish you all the best in the future. Also, I will try to get some sig badges for you next week.
  2. First, I apologize for the long delay with everything, and my absence for the last couple weeks. I have been ridiculously busy, and have not had time to even come to OCR lately. Second, I only received 3 votes. If you want, I can give you the tally now, or I can wait a couple more days to see if anyone else votes. What do you guys want?
  3. If anyone is still planning on voting, there's only four days left. Remember, this is open, so you don't have to have a submission this round to vote. If you have submitted to *any* writing competition in the past (on OCR), you are eligible to vote.
  4. Thanks Imagery. I also realized just now that I forgot to update the first post. I don't have time tonight, but there are four entries: "Barber Shop" by Barnsalot "Deviance" by darklink42 "Frozen" by Imagery "Reaching Out" by just64helpin
  5. yes. and so much for the extension...I've got nothing =/
  6. I have actually thought about making one of these multiple times. Never got around to it, though. Mine was basically a toolbar that let you search for mixes, bookmark mixes you like, etc. I don't really know how useful anything like this would be, though. Actually, a built-in player for ormgas would be pretty slick.
  7. Ok, I'm going to extend the deadline until October 5. Three entries is not enough to vote on, and there's no point letting them go to waste.
  8. Congrats citris! And man, that hurts RD. Though, if she really didn't want to be with you (or wasn't committed) it is at least better to find it out before you get engaged/married.
  9. This is a somewhat related question: does anyone know if there is any special method or whatever to singing/screaming harshly without shredding your vocal cords? I've always wondered how some metal/screamo etc. bands can scream like demons and then right afterwards sing normally.
  10. meh, work. i'm sure i'll come up with something last-minute, just like i always do
  11. Final Fantasy 7. The funny thing is, I hadn't ever played it, but a friend gave me the MIDI rip of 'Those Who Fight Further', which quickly became one of my favorite songs. From there, I found myself a MIDI rip of the entire game (which I still have), and enjoyed that for a while. Later, I was browsing SingingFish (R.I.P.), and came up with a song from OCRemix - I don't remember which. And here I am.
  12. Done. Albeit quietly. Not that hard really, just take a deep breath and talk fast. And I have no clue what character I am.

    Nintendo DS

    Good, they fixed my biggest issue with the first. That and the ridiculous story.

    Nintendo DS

    Question: is it better than Sonic Rush, or just on par?

    Upcoming Movies!

    I hate Hollywood. Seriously, only 2 movies between now and 2008 are even remotely interesting to me: The Golden Compass and I Am Legend, and the latter primarily because of Will Smith.
  19. I hate telling people happy birthday. It's like saying "well, I don't think about you any other time of the year, but since today is the anniversary of your birth I will wish you well." What could possibly be more lame. So instead, have a great day, just like every other day. God bless.
  20. So, I'm confused. Are current comps going to be placed in Community or aren't they? If they are, whom do I contact to move them there? Alternately, if said person happens to see this post, the September Writing Competition just started, so could you please move it to Community?
  21. I think I am going to need to remove aforementioned offers of my meager talents. The excitement of the moment wore off enough for me to realize: there is no way I'd have enough time for something like this in the coming months. Looks like you've got all the bases covered, though. Good luck, and I'll be waiting to hear any progress!
  22. Heh, thanks Imagery. This one really snuck up on me. So, short story submissions...GO!
  23. You can drop me from the vocals list, unless needed. Like I said, recording is an issue for me anyway. If you, for some reason, really need a lower-range baritone singer (I doubt it), you can always check out my website for some vocal samples.
  24. You should definitely check out the Bound Together project. Ten levels of awesome.
