Music Day!

It's a week of fun, games, and healthy competition! Welcome to the ToO's first-ever Spirit Week, "a game of knowledge and skill"! \:D/

Music Day!

Postby LizzieG » Thu Aug 20, 2009 2:15 am

Thursday is MUSIC DAY! \:D/

Introducing Captain Crunch and the Cereal Killers! :D I'm happy to see that all four teams have found their rightful names. Even if they're all on the wacky side. ;)

I really had no idea what the response to those riddles would be. It isn't often that I try to stump people with a few lines of writing, so I wasn't sure if I'd be too successful... or not successful enough. All you participants know that it was the former... at least until I released what the common denominator was (haha, I accidentally typed "realized" instead of "released" at first. :lol: ): iTaliq has certain festivities planned as part of the Passages Countdown. Each of the riddles describes one of these upcoming features/events. The Rath of the Israelites pulled out a very narrow victory ahead of the competition, though everyone solved at least part of it (good job, teams! =D> ).

We're on to Music Day now, so I won't talk any more about the mystery of the Passages Countdown here. To find out what we're doing to count down the days until September 19, however, look no further than right here. :)

Here are today's challenges (today-specific stuff is in blue). Both the group and individual challenges are due TODAY, at 11:59 PM, EDT (via PM to me :)).

WEEK-LONG GROUP CHALLENGE

Wow, is tomorrow Friday already?! That means that shop items are due tomorrow! Remember, come up with something that creatively shows the spirit of the ToO! Shop items - complete with a short description, long description, and small image - will be due TOMORROW - Friday, at 11:59 PM, EDT.

PUT YOUR HEADS TOGETHER!

Today you get to write a song! \:D/

Compose lyrics to the tune of Yankee Doodle (for those of you who don't know it - oh horror of horrors! - check out this youtube link. The first verse (and the only one most people are familiar with) is as follows:

Yankee Doodle went to town
A-riding on a pony,
Stuck a feather in his cap
And called it macaroni'.

Two verses is the minimum length for your song, and it needs to be about the Town of Odyssey in some way. How you write about the ToO is up to you; for example, you may choose to write about the Town as a whole, or about some of the individual members, or something else entirely. This may be a trickier challenge to do as a group, but, after watching the teams do an admirable job of working together all week, I'm confident they can pull it off. :D

Oh, and there might be some bonus points lurking around, if anyone (or ones) want to record themselves singing their finished song. \:D/

STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD!

Who are these people? Pick one of the photos and tell me in a PM who the artist or band in that one is.

I've had a request for a time extension for the bonus aspect of today's group challenge, and so I'm going to extend it an hour for everyone ~ 12:59 AM, EDT. :)

Also, the avatar points policy will be changing slightly; any team with at least 66% of their members (5/7 or 4/6) who change their avatars will get some points, but with the most still going to the team(s) with the highest-percentage of "dress-uppers." ;)

I can't name any of those bands/singers. The only one I only slightly recognize is #4, but I still think that I'm wrong.

The song lyrics! \:D/

The Peanut Butter Lollipops wrote:Welcome to our humble Town,
We would like to meet you,
You will get to know and see
That we're a motley crew!

Taq and Lizzie surfed the boards,
Wanting motivation.
They clicked and saw the RHQ
And had their inspiration!

Catspaw went upon the roof,
Nigel right behind her,
Gave a shove and then was sad,
To see her saved by Tyler.

Top Crusader came to Town,
A-looking for baloney.
Instead he rode back to his home,
With Admiral on his pony.

Ruthie once thought it would be
Awesome to meet J-man,
That is until when she found out
He really was a caveman!

Irwin Springer has much fun
Giving out his money,
While American Eagle makes
All the Town seem funny!

There are many more of us,
Waiting here to tell you,
Stick around and then you'll find,
that you're one of us too!

Captain Crunch and the Cereal Killers wrote:Eugene Kendall went to town,
And Snuck into the ACP.
He closed the board down,
And then stole all our money.

Once upon a time (oh yeah)
there was week celebration
thought a song up and PMed it
sung for generations!

The town of Od'ssey yes its true,
Its fun in all we do.
We want you to have fun and post
it's fun when we're with you!

+

The ToO Board is a place,
from our creative minds.
From forums, banks and stores galore,
there's even an arcade.

The Rainbow Unicorns wrote:In the town of Odyssey
We have the Top Crusader
He has a father named EK
Although he was born later

Come and check the ToO
Come and make some money
We're a bunch of introverts
But you will find us funny

Cream-puff Catspaw runs the board
A really crazy forum
She has a crush on Shadowpaw
Never lacking boredom

Chorus

Taq and LizzieG are tough
Running lots of contests
They make us read and exercise
You'd almost think they're possessed

Chorus

Rainbow Unicorns are cool
We really think they're awesome
We'll eat the peanut lollipops
Or feed them to the possum

Chorus

The Rath of Israelites will fall
And also Captain Crunch
We'll blow them all to smithereens
And celebrate with fruit punch

Chorus

Now we must confess to you
This song is rather batty
We hope you had a laugh or two
Go fly to Cincinatti

Chorus

The Rath of the Israelites wrote:Vs. 1:
There was this guy named Shadowpaw
who had a super thought.
He made a town for cool people
to talk and laugh a lot;

Vs. 2:
Discuss, debate and joke around
and have all kinds of great times.
There's fake money, fun and games
and even prizes sometimes.

Vs. 3:
Catspaw is our kind admin,
We love her and adore her,
It's too bad that Shadowpaw,
Won't come back now and wed her!

Vs. 4:
The first mayor was our Top,
And EB was his sidekick.
Four more years have come and gone,
Twelve teams we've had to pick.

Vs 5:
Whit and Ham are happily wed,
And Gabriel has been vanquished,
When ToOers help each other out,
We get a lot accomplished.

Vs 6:
We're like a giant melting pot;
all colours of the rainbow.
We're from all states and provinces,
now where'd my hockey puck go?

Chorus:
Come on, ToOers, keep it up.
You are so amazing.
Keep on posting all day long
Let's keep this town ablazing.
I love the \:D/ smiley
