Announcing The Videogum Song Contest

Ain’t this cool news! Videogum readers werttrew, Shellbomber and Chris Trash have devised a Videogum Song Contest. Neat! There are rules and actual prizes, just like a real contest! You guys should definitely enter this contest. Not just because I think you would be great at it, and you stand a decent chance of winning, but because if you don’t enter this contest, no one will, and that will be embarrassing. Anyway, some rules:

  • Write a song about Videogum. It can be about a specific post, or a specific commenter, or Sad Keanu, or in-jokes, or anything you can relate to Videogum. It could be a theme song, an ode to Topher Grace, or a Double Rainbow tribute. It is your song, so it is up to you, as long as it is Videogum-related.
  • The song should be no longer than five minutes, please.
  • Contestants may collaborate. Contestants may have others perform the songs for them, but it’ll be counted more favorably if the contestants themselves perform.
  • Contestants may use just their voice if they choose, but instruments are welcome and encouraged.
  • Contestants may enter multiple songs.
  • Initial entries will be judged by monsters Chris Trash, werttrew, and Shellbomber. They’ll winnow it down to five final entries. These five final entries will be posted on Videogum and voted on by the monster community.
  • Contestants will have until midnight EST on October 1 to submit their songs.
