Here is my Comments & Questions Post; on time & back to its usual "weekend slot". Let me start things off by saying that this was an awesome 6th round! Not only did all 7 remaining contestants showcase the true potential of their talents, but so did Woock & Celfious. You guys really showed the viewers what they are missing out on. Anyways, I want to thank all of you for showcasing something last round and for this talent contest so great!

I want everyone to know something about the last round of voting that I am very proud to announce. We had our first vote cast by an eliminated contestant! You'd think that after 4 rounds and 4 eliminated contestants we would already have had one of them cast a single vote, but that was not the case. It took the dedicated Antipaladin to "break the ice" and finally cast a vote from the "sidelines".

Ok, so now I'd like to get down to business and talk about what I saw, read, & heard from the contestants in round #6.
T-A - That was another good piece of writing. You had me confused at some points , intrigued at others , and entertained the whole way through! The ending was a nice touch and I found that it brought the entire short story together.

P.S. I have added last week's signature to my Personal Page. Thanks again!

William - This was certainly your most unique showcase yet. Besides parts 18 & 19 going together very well, parts 20 & 21 seemed independant of each other & just about everything else. I always thought that you were trying to tell a story with your compilation of songs; was I incorrect or can you explain to me what those last 2 parts meant?

Iris - That was an enjoyable performance that I found to be sharp and lively! I'll admit that I am looking forward to hearing something a little longer from you though; as whenever one of your pieces finishes, I am always left wanting more.

Woock - Damn...that is the smallest flock of birds that I have ever seen! I must have taken you a lot of time, talent, & patience to create all of those. I am impressed!

FoG - You are really showing us a wide variety of talents throughout this contest. And the remarkable thing is that you are oh-so-good at all of them! Your composition gave me visions of a marching Goblin army and had lots of brooding undertones that made it perfect.

Celfious - Your sic-fi theory was really cool. Although you kind of lost me in the middle of it, I think I understood enough of it to recognize how it would be interesting to read a story on the subject. Maybe you can use that as your talent when I hold another contest.

Kookastar - It was nice to see your story get an unexpected dose of humour, via the bird poop. Seriously though, your pics are really well done! I am in amazement at how you bring such a variety of themes together.

Milena - I continue to be pleasantly surprised by your variety of talents, as well as the different approaches you take to showcase them. I guess the best way to describe my reaction to your "sermon" is with utterances & images for the beginning, middle, and end. Essentialy: Huh ...Ohh ...Ahhh!
Besides the pleasure I had at hearing your voice, I really enjoyed how your sermon came full circle on its main idea. Very well done!

P.S. Why do you call it a sermon, anyways?

Thanks for the kind words Leo, Well I don't know what to say.
I never pictured them as a story, but now that I think about it, it could be a story, just of my life I guess, I dont know quite hard to explain, with vocals/lyrics in the songs, they can tell a story, but yeah.
I don't think you were incoreect, and to tell you the truth, I do not know what parts 20 and 21 mean, but for everyone they may mean something else or may mean nothing, I am glad you see them differently then some other's would

Just for the record, now that you reminded me, Leo. :-)

This last entry is indeed a sermon of mine. I delivered it in Oct 2006. You can hear this kind of sermons in most UU congregations. This is why it's in audio format too because the talent behind it is public speaking. Hehe, I did revamp it, I also abbreviated it and cut about 5 mins of it but otherwise it was almost the way those about 90-100 people heard it a year ago.

And it was based on your votes that the decision to eliminate Iris was made.

This is a ripoff! An outrage I tell ya!

You won't hear the last of me! I will go on strike and gather all the Iris fans around, together we will be united in our struggle to bring her back!

You know what I realised, when thinking about where the talent contest currently is, there is only 4 more rounds until the Finale! It's really "crunch time".

Anyways, I just wanted to give those to whom I send notices about the voting being open a chance to let me know if they want to be left out. I'm not asking them to vote for me, by the way...I am simply telling them that the "voting window" is open. So, if anyone to whom I am sending IMs informing them about the voting would like to get off my "solicitation list", just let me know.

Other than that, I don't plan on having a break during the competition, but if enough of the other contestants want to implement Kookastar's idea, then who am I to argue?

I really feel that having this break could make the entries better  Is two votes and the fact that {aparently} TA is away for a week {correct me if I am wrong} enough for you to grant this wish please?

If you object can you please say so too.

Well I thought I should tell you this but..

Next week I will be away hiking up mount kosiosko and doing all that stuff, school year 10 camp, the biggest one yet
So yeah maybe this could be good, maybe give me until about Saturday or Sunday my time, but that might be asking too much, and if this break thing happens, then it will be good cos if this doesnt happen then next week I cannot submit an entry so yeah.

I am a reasonable man...so I will implement a break in the competition after this round.

It wouldn't be fair to take a week off at this point, since we are half-way through the round, 2 people have already Posted something in the Contest Thread, & more importantly, there was no warning of it to the "viewers". {I really don't want to upset the people who are enjoying this contest & voting, without at least giving them a heads-up first.} Besides, I didn't hear anything from T-A, so I imagine that he planned on having something showcased before the deadline.

This might not be the perfect solution that everyone was looking for, but it is the best compromise that I could think of. Let me know if there is further need to discuss this issue...or any others.

I simply use Window's "Sound Recorder". When you are done with your recording select "Save as" and make sure to click on the box at the bottom of the pop-up called "Change".

Then, simply change the "PCM" format to "MPEG Layer 3" and your save your document! (It will default to the best quality MP3...I think)

Be warned though, Window's "Sound Recorder" goes in 60 second intervals. So, if you want to record longer than that, you have to click on the record button again (i.e. every time 1 minute goes by).
