WELCOME TO THE 2008 EOFF KARAOKE SONG OFF GOODTIMES

I decided to do this without waiting for much support from the staff, and like all of my most fabulous ideas this is pretty half cocked. I do remember sometime ago someone doing a karaoke/Britney Spears sing off and it was fabulous. Like drag queens and acrylics. So I want to do it NOW.

There are TWO CATEGORIES. VIDEO and AUDIO.

“FOA” you shriek. “HOW DOES I PLAY”

I’ll tell you. Belooooooow.



*Each contestant may submit up to THREE VIDEOS/AUDIO RECORDINGS of themselves performing different songs. The weirder and catchier the better.

*You MAY dress in drag, you MAY air guitar but you MAY NOT break any EoFF rules in the video.

*To participate, you must create a video, upload it a webspace of your choosing and PM me your entries.

*I will review all entries for completeness and adherence to EoFFs rules before posting them. I reserve the right to dismiss any and all videos if they don’t meet our standards, or if they suck (j/k).

*I WILL POST ALL OF THE ENTRIES ON A DATE IN THE RELATIVELY NEAR FUTURE. Do NOT post any of your entries in this thread. Or I’ll kill you.

*Members of EoFF will have 1-2 weeks to vote on their favorite entries. You can vote for yourself.

Recordings will be broken down into the following categories:

AUDIO
Best Audio Recording – Overall
Best Audio Recording – Male
Best Audio Recording – Female
Best Audio Recording – Duo or Group
Best Audio Recording with Instrumentation
Best Audio Recording without Instrumentation (for these YOU MUST PLAY YOUR OWN INSTRUMENT – any instrument at all. Even nose harp.)
Weirdest Song Choice
Glass Cracklin’ Range

VIDEO
Best Video – Overall
Best Video – Male
Best Video – Female
Best Video – Duo or Group
Best Costume Design
Best Air Instrumentation
Best Facial Expression
Best Hair

You have, from this point, until MARCH 1 2008 to submit your entries. You may only submit a COMBINED TOTAL of 3 videos or audio recordings, not three each.

Provided is a sample of my terrible singing voice. I am singing Iron Maiden. Because I am better than you.

HAPPY KARAOKE-ING

D'OH. Okay. For real. here it is.

Here be foas. (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=E0HHNRGL)

SUPER EDIT:

Karaoke CD+G Creator - Allows you to remove vocals from a song and save it as a seperate .wav file
Audacity - Freeware(!) mixing studio that allows you to record multiple channels, manually edit tracks by moving stuff around/deleting sections etc. and export the whole thing as a single MP3. I actually used this to give myself backing vocals on one song.

USE THAT OMG.

Also, submissions can continue until I officially close the thread whenever I wake up tomorrow. Deal? Outta sight.

Ouch!

Hell, I don't even know how to make those "Nintendo sounds" on my amp! I thought Hangar 18 was tough on guitar...but Through The Fire And The Flames (or any dragonforce song, for that matter) makes Hangar 18 look like a mickey mouse song.

Right I've kinda made a short list but I don't know which one's to sing;

1 - "Serious" song
Pearl Jam - Black
Staind - Outside
Machine Head - The Burning Red
Alice in Chains - Down in a Hole

2 - "Rock Out" song
Journey - Don't Stop Believing
Foreigner - Cold As Ice
Bon Jovi - You Give Love A Bad Name

3 - "Stupid" song
Tenacious D - Tribute/Master Exploder
Cannibal Corpse - Hammer Smashed Face (in a swinger, Frank Sinatra style)
The Darkness - Get Your Hands Off My Woman (slightly adjusted lyrics due to dirtyness)

Votes?

fire_of_avalon
02-19-2008, 09:57 PM
Down in a Hole, Get your hands off my woman and I can't decide between Cold as Ice and You Give Love a bad name. I love Foreigner but YGLaBN was the first song I knew the lyrics to.

The Karaoke program can be tried for free on a 14-day trial, which is more than long enough for the purposes of this competition. Audacity is 100% free. Also, if you're not using windows then that's your own stupid fault and you can jolly well fend for yourself you non-conformist commie.
