    Contest! Sitepoint Theme Song

    Hey everyone,

    Platinum and I were talking the other day on MSN, and the subject came up about me being a musician. He asked me where the Sitepoint theme song was. Of course I laughed at the absurdity of the whole matter. But the more I thought about it the more I thought, "Hey, that could be fun!" But I don't want to write the dern thing. I just want to put music to it!

    So here's your chance to help build the SitePoint Community. Starting a contest now (winner gets bragging rights! ) for writing the lyrics to the Sitepoint theme song. Submit them to yours truly at livingpages@livingpages.net. I will submit my opinions for winning song to the staff. We'll choose one and then I'll put some music to it for our Sitepoint jingle! How's that sound?

    I can do the music editing if you actually want to make it -- I have access to a studio where I have down a fair bit of editing before. Cool Edit Pro 2000 kicks butt! Also have Cubase VST and a variety of other stuff.

    Well, I obviously can't get into your studio for a SP theme song since many thousand miles and a great big Atlantic Ocean separates us... But I can send you a rough copy (WAV, whatever) if you have hi bandwidth and you could clean it up...

    If you can put together the track I can whack them all together all nice and tidily.

    well, hmmm, I'll try. Don't have alot to work with here. I'd love to have a nice Alesis QS8.1 keyboard or a nice 1/4" input jack to plug my geetar into. I have some ideas running around my head for how to make it as professional sounding as possible, but it might just end up being my mic for my PC, and praying the phone doesn't ring while recording!

    you should try guitar tracks from cakewalk:
    http://www.cakewalk.com/Products/GP/GP.html
    inexpensive, but works really well for basic multitracking (i think it comes with a 1/4" adapter too)

    russ, guitar tracks is not XP compatible. Only Win95/98. Unless there's a new version out.

    I wish I were a Sitepoint Member.
    That is what i'd truely like to be.
    For, if I were a Sitepoint Member,
    everyone would be in love with me.

    Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.
    From what I've tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.

    A life with no point,
    is a life without friends,
    but with a community joint,
    we won't have dead ends.

    Join me to that lovely place,
    filled with pearls and wisdom,
    come with me to see the lovely face,
    where there is a lot of freedom.

    Yes I am talking about Sitepoint Forums,
    the most lovely place of all,
    There is no word that rhymes with forum,
    but we still prefer it over the mall.

    King Wayne rules with a wand and not a fist,
    and Nicky the angel at his side,
    the knowledge spreads light over the mist,
    and the ocean continues its tide.

    With a lot of talk and chatter,
    and some smart info too,
    we all eat poutine of a platter,
    and laugh at gavin's kangaroo. (please note its late.)

    Yes I am talking about Sitepoint Forums,
    the most lovely place of all,

    but we still prefer it over the mall.


    Whaddya think?

    Was just fiddling around with the words, nothing special. I like writing songs with rhymes, but my friends dont let me anymore

    Regarding Gavin's Kangaroo - He's australian and I'm being stereotypical but if you find something else that rhymes with too I'll be glad to change it.

    So... Aaron (sketch) can be the lead singer
    We can try to convince wayne and nicky to do the duet (whilst both playing the piano)
    And hehehe, the advisors better just do the backing vocals...
    ohhh, yeah, and the mentors can be tap dancing as well... mmmmm... we need a video clip as well
