#3 swing contest winners
by Jenn (fire_vixen_geri)
at February 26th, 2006 (12:46 pm)

Mandy and I lately have found it kinda hard to have a time to converse back and forth like usual.
Sorry that we are not on top of things like usual. (Like I was thinking she might have posted the winners since she knew Mr. G was working us to death for competition, oh soreness from yesterday, but uber fun!)

But Here are the winners from the #3 Swing Contest!

1st place Tie!  By: lachatdelarue

2nd Place By: dyingrebel

And Mod's choices
lachatdelarue     and     dyingrebel I will try to get the banners done today, but I make no promises with having to read Macbeth and being exhausted from competition.

Theres no entries for the Harry Potter one yet! Gasp! For now, I'd probably say its going to be extended or put off untill later (but not going to say either way with it being Mandy's) But I think it'd be okay to still create. With how obsessed with HP that we are, not gonna let this one go away, less you guys are not.
But off to homework, woo.

Banners finally for Female contest #2!!

current mood: pensive
current song: In the Mood - Brian Setzer Orchestra

I'm alive!! I know scary. But when you are fighting through Brit Lit, with a 79, which soooo is not me (Hermione about grades) Been fighting that up, and then preparing for show choir competiton this weekend, and then trying not to get sicker, then eyes doing this funky strain thingy, decided it might just be best to take a break. Sorry I really gave no warning about it, but school does come first, specially with being a senior (woo!) and my last year of Show Choir which forever will be my baby. Finally got no homework, so could finish! My first time trying banners, did something lil different.. But... Banners!Collapse )

And then to be more of a dork, and to share that I've been busy.. Our Show Choir Picture! With the pimp hat! Brownie Points if you can pick me out =P (Or actually a brownie, just hard to get through the computer..)

The next contest is..

Harry Potter!

This is going to be a general Harry Potter contest with no specifics beyond it must be from the movies. Any of the movies. On another week we may do something more specific.
All I ask is that it's not of the actors out of character, promo shots if in character are allowed. Have fun! Submit up to 3 icons and you have until the 25th at 12:01am.

This is really easy to find pictures, I suggest using google.com if you're at a loss of where to search. I also have a few links to pictures I've downloaded to share in case you don't feel like searching.






Any questions, feel free to ask, that's what I'm here for!

Okay, so here's what's been going on. My co-mod has been too busy to deal with this community, and I didn't update like I said I would this weekend because yesterday I went to the Hersheys Kissables 300 nascar race in Daytona. So I apologize for the late voting. Of course voting will remain open for 48 hours as usual, just a little off.
I don't know anything about the banners, beyond I think my co-mod has the bases done. I'm very sorry about that, I know she wants to do those and for the winners of this weeks. Then after that it will be back to me. We're normally doing it every other week, but she wanted these since swing is her "baby". Hehe. -edit- Many thanks to the person who voted and reminded me that I forgot to say how many icons to vote for. Please vote for your favorite two!
Onto the voting!Collapse )

Since my co-mod has been all bark and no bite as far as keeping up with this contest she wanted to do, I thought I'd let yall know that I'll be taking back over next week. Hehe. Watch out bossy co-mod. She should of posted the voting sometime Friday night or Saturday, but we all saw how that went. And since it's Monday already, and we do only have 5 icons in, I will make sure the posting for voting will be done Friday night, and the winners posted Sunday along with next weeks contest. Which will be one of my ideas. *evil laugh* I like keeping this place as prompt as possible for you guys!
So this has been an update, and a reminder to Enter here!

by Jenn (fire_vixen_geri)
at February 8th, 2006 (10:07 pm)

Well, taking a break from the studying I need to do, and the sleep I need to catch up on from the concert last night (oh that was fun) Finally got around to some lyrics and such for the swing contest. I'm sorry I'm like lagging behind on all of this, I do have some music videos somewhere and some swing songs, if you want me to share.... I would just upload, but its gettin late, and studying is usually a good idea before a test...
Onto some lyrics! Finally...Collapse )

Contest #3 - Swing Music! Big band...
by Jenn (fire_vixen_geri)
at February 6th, 2006 (03:06 pm)

current mood: hyper
current song: Brown Derby Jump - Cherry Poppin Daddies

So behind everything (blame it on the super bowl) Buuuuut. Blame this contest idea, on show choir. Since competition season is starting up... Swing music! You know big band, It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing, Choo choo ch'boogie, jump jive an' wail, java jive, (Hey, gotta push the songs we are doing!). But others, zuit suit riot, brown derby jump, in the mood, and many others, I could go on and on!

Any aspect of swing, lyrics, the dance moves (oooo some of those poses can look so dirty, but so fun to do!) I know you guys are creative and can come up with some good ideas!

If you are totally stumped, I'll share some of my swing music if needed (share the obsession, I mean love, haha) Since this contest got out sooo late As of now it is due Feb 10th, up to a snazzy 3 icons. But I'll shush now, to go put hair up in curlers for preformance tomorrow! Enter them as a reply to this post!

Whoa...what's been going on here?! Only 3 entries...what's up with that?!

Hehe. So we need at least two more by Saturday morning in order to not have to do an extension. *bats eyes* Pretty, pretty please?

The bossy co-mod has been off trying to figure out how to not fall on her arse in show choir. Which is kind of funny...she hasn't gotten really hurt...too bad..Hehehe.

So I realize we're all busy, and we all have lives away from this...but the icons I know that can be made by you members are so pretty, I love them!

Please, guys, if you have the time, get kinki and enter. That way we can get the next contest under way!

-edit- Bossy co-mod strikes again...
