Actually slightly surprised there wasn't already a thread for this--any other Yanks or Canadidians recorded any entries for this?

http://tinyurl.com/2999sx8

If you haven't yet and want a chance not only to see KT in NYC if you win but have a backstage meet-and-greet *and* sing with her on her sound check (!!!) there's still time, if only barely, as entries have to be posted to Myspace's karaoke and have at least 100 views by tomorrow at 3:00 Pacific Time. According to the little video blurb up front, apparently KT herself will pick the final winner (though for her sake I hope they narrow it down for her a bit first :-) ), so get crackin'! :-)

(Now I'm not sure *exactly* what they mean by 3:00 because they said it as PST, and it's not that yet it's still PDT, so whether they meant it literally and it's all due at 3 PST/4 PDT I don't know, but I suspect they really mean 3 PDT.)

And, also, if you're of a mind to (and here's hoping you are! :-D ), I've recorded versions of both BHATCT and FLAS for the contest (only way I'm much likely to see KT this tour leg I suspect) with backing vocals(!), so please do go watch them at http://tinyurl.com/2fglush which'll give me a much needed assist in getting my view counts up over 100. If you're a Myspace member, it's probably a good idea to watch them while logged in and then rate and comment, as I think ratings and comments probably bring a at least little more attention to entries. And I don't think there's anything saying that the views/comments/ratings need to come from North America, just the entrants.

The more (views, comments, and entrants) the merrier, so go tell your friends! Pester random strangers on the street! Convince mum and dad their experience of the Interwebs isn't really complete without Myspace Karaoke familiarity! I mean, cooome on!

So anyhoo, thanks to them as watch/rate/comment, and mahoosive luck to anybody else who's trying this!!!

Z.

Now that it's later and more Norteamericanos are awake ;-) (and some plenty of Brits might still be awake, gathered around the warming phosphor glow of their laptops and monitors and such), thought I'd post here again quick, if only to ask if any other Norteamericanos have done/are doing this contest. Golden opportunity folks!

Oh, and of course also to invite again that folks go watch and maybe rate/comment, as I'm inching closer to the half-way mark on 100 views on both, but the clock's a-tickin'! Long shot, I know, but wouldn't it be something....

No worries *at all* Andy, thanks for trying bro! Hyp's tonight going to be summoning the numbers of her mahoosive army of Facebook gaming friends from her former time addicted to Robin Hood, so we haven't thrown all our reserves in yet. :-)

It's loading now, Z. I'm not a MySpacer, so I don't think I can leave a comment, but at least I can add to your view count. Good luck!!

Gack! I had been mulling over maybe seeing if my usual web-video-download tools would pull my karaoke performances down so I could put them up to Mega or something so that friends outside Canada and US could at least see/hear, but...then I went and read the contest rules again just to be sure, and the specifically say that's against the rules, so guess I won't be risking that. Shame. Copyright is one thing, but all this regional blocking and excluding is just senseless. Do you hear me, entertainment-industrial complex? :-D

Dude, I've added to your view count so if you win you owe me 1 bro :smt023
Conversely, if you don't win you still of course owe me 1 for trying :D

Aw, thanks!! Me too. ;-) :smt023

Seriously, I think I did pretty well, and I'm actually starting to get some really positive feedback from strangers who apparently do Myspace karaoke a lot. So...I think it's possible I *could* win, we'll just see if I do. :-)

It would be seriously rad if I did. The shizzle, certain popstrels might say.

Whoop whoop! Yip yip even! I'm well up over 100 plays on both BHATCT and FLAS by this morning, well ahead of deadline. Mahoosive cheers to everybody who helped with that count!

Now if the Tunstall just recognizes that I'm the obvious choice, Gotham here i come! :roll:
