    okay, so i got word of a contest the local clear-channel radio station is putting on.

    e-mail 'em a nominee of your "favorate local band" and the three-highest voted bands will play a battle-of-the-bands competition on Oct. 5 at the kelsey club. the winner will open for some band called blindside (don't know who they are).

    here's how you vote:

    a) go to this address: http://www.buzz103.com/home.asp

    click on the hypertext on the middle-right side (giving you the info in my second paragraph), which will pull up a window so you can email them your vote.

    b) go to your own email service and write an email

    the recipient: info@buzz103.com

    the title: "battle of the bands nominee"


    "so, who am i voting for, anyway?" you may ask.

    MY BAND IS NAMED "SYZYGY."

    "can i actually hear your band so i'm not just assuming you guys are any good?"

    NO!! :D sorry, we don't have any mp3s posted, and the only files of any of our songs are in my bro's laptop, which is in tampa (and my guitarist wouldn't want anyone hear him singing-which is why i never posted any mp3s in the first place).

    trust me, we're good. if you don't take my word for it, consider this: no one who has heard us said they didn't like it! we're in the top five of a kid's favorate bands (no joke!). people we don't know stop by our wharehouse to listen to us and say we're awesome. and our parents love our music! :p

    "have you guys got a singer YET?"

    NO!! but hopefully we will by the end of the week! besides, singers are overrated.

    :D

    "what is the deadline?"

    i don't know! so vote ASAP. this satuday is the 5th, so i'd imagine they'll close on or before friday.

    "is there any real incentive for me to vote?"

    besides my eternal friendship? besides helping out a fellow "low-life"? besides helping a talented band spread the word around?

    yes. if you vote for "syzygy", i'll let you eat a cookie. go ahead. you earned it.


    now, please, get voting!

    :D

    So I could have that cookie!

    and stick it in your "yeah"?

    :D :D

    thanks!

    hopefully, more snack-craving bass-talkers will follow suit. any help is appreciated.

    and if it helps to motivate, imagine my band, singerless, under-rehearsed, very under-aged, competing against 20+ year olds.

    help us get our asses kicked!

    :D

    Dude, Blindside rocks! I suggest trying to find some of their stuff and listen, they're really something. They are playing here in November, and I plan to see them. I've heard that they are incredible live. I can't help you with finding it on the net though, sorry! :(

    Good luck btw! :D

    Actually it´s like this:

    *Limp Bizkit backing track fades in*
    i did it all for the nookie
    the nookie
    the nookie
    so you can take that cookie
    and stick it up your...
    *Limp Bizkit backing track fades out*

    Your quote to Limp Bizkit is therefore dead in the water, well, unless you want some nookie from bassbrobrad :D

    Nookie and cookie are a whole different thing ;)

    well...i WOULD chalk the confusion up as a regional/language thing, but that can't be the case, as it was a fellow icelander who administered the pun.

    and as far as limp bizkit's influence spreading to the icy, icy north: i'm sorry.

    and i certainly don't hope gunnar only voted "for [my] nookie"!

    :eek:

    but that doesn't mean that icez can't!

    :eek: :eek:

    :D

    ;)

    just think of how cool it would be to hear that my band was the laughing stock of the competition. nay, the laughing stock of SOUTH FLORIDA!!

    and what would really be funny is if the radio station is somehow able to check where the voters are located.

    "how the hell is a fan of a local south floridian band in iceland!?"
