Pimpin' the Goo
Was that a flash of gold you saw in my smile? Am I slicker than slick? Is it not at all easy being myself?

Why, yes! Which can mean only one thing...


Hold on while I put on this hat.

OK. I rarely pimp other journals or events in my LJ, simply because too many awesome people are doing too many awesome things. There's no way I could pimp out everything that deserved pimping (see, it really isn't easy being a pimp). But this? This was just Too Awesome to let slip by.

So it turns out that I've underestimated a friend. I always knew that Miss moneypenny was both brilliant AND beautiful, but never guessed she was THIS talented as well.
I entered a contest with some fellow Compaq Big Band members and submitted a track of me singing for thevocal competition. The first round is done through online voting, which is my cue to hassle all of you to click onto the website and cast avote for me. If I get enough votes, I become one of 8 finalists to be featured on the next album by New England's largest big band. I figured that was worth haranguing my friends en masse.

It seriously just takes a second, assuming you give me the benefit of the doubt and don't need to listen to the whole track first: Go to http://www.bigphatjam.com,scroll down near the bottom of the page to the contest submissions,look at the Vocals column for "Week 7" (scroll past the previous weeks'finalists to get there). I'm on as "Emily Goo." Click the little thumbs-up icon to vote for me.

Don't give her the benefit of the doubt, dear readers. Be nice to yourself and listen to her awesome submission. THEN vote for her (as I'm sure you'll be compelled to do).

OK, Pimp Time over :)

* Please note-- I had difficulty getting the sound files to work in Firefox, but they worked just fine in IE.

I'm feeling all kinds of: jazzin'

You are too, too kind. As a note to everybody, I've gotten an error message a couple of times upon the loading the site recently, but by reloading once or twice it usually pops right up. You guys rock for doing this!

Stop pimping yourself so much!! You're not that good...you sound like a fake theater person. You don't sound real.

Re: stop the madness!!

Heh, if you'd actually read the post, you'd realize that I was pimping someone else. That's kinda the definition of pimp, yo.

And while you're entitled to your opinion, I think she sounds great.

800 votes????

You're not near good enough to get 800 votes! Are you cheating somehow? Funny that you tell people that they don't have to listen to the track. LMAO

Honestly, if they did actually listen, they would realize that they should vote for someone else. LOL

Re: 800 votes????

Wow, I have to guess that you're either a direct competitor, or someone close to a competitor. You've replied twice, and didn't bother to read the post either time. I actually insisted that people listen to the track.

I might actually care about what you're saying, if you had A. actually read the post to which you are responding, and B. had the cojones to actually post under a name, any name at all. Amazing how brave and stupid we become when we have no accountability to anyone.

Good luck with that!

Re: 800 votes????

I'm neither a competitor nor close to the other contestants.

Yes, you're correct in that I didn't realize that YOU are not the competitor. Oh snap!

Regardless, she isn't that good. period.

You can be critical of anonymous posts all you want. I could care less. I definately know what I'm talking about and I'm not worried about whether or not you approve.

Re: 800 votes????

Considering you didn't even know whom the competitor was (which should be absolutely clear from even a quick scan of the post), I have to question whether you know what you're talking about. So it's probably a good thing that you're not worried about my approval. ;)

That said, you're entitled to your opinion, as I'm entitled to mine. I think she's quite good. :)

Jooc, if you're not an LJ regular, what brought you here? It's clear that your message was not in response to what I wrote. Did you google Emily Goo? I can see how you might have jumped to the conclusion you did if that's the case.
