Songfight Logo Idea

Postby erik » Fri Oct 19, 2007 8:28 pm

Okay, let me preface this by saying:

1) I know nothing about photography.
2) I know nothing about editing photographs.
3) I have been drinking.

Here's the suggestion: Every week, change the SF logo on the front page. The Attacking Musician would change to the person who had won the most recent fight. The Defending Musician would change to whoever won two fights ago. Yes, this would require people to take nice action pictures with instruments, and then have someone edit them onto the SF logo. But it would be kind of cool to see, like, Hoblit attacking State Shirt with the words SONG FIGHT! behind them.

Great idea and would be fun to see. Good thing for everyone here that I can line up behind Mr. Obs and spare you the fright of my muggage.

I see the logo experiment has begun.

This will require, as you said... some extra work for everybody...but I do like the idea. I just don't have a digital camera. I'd have to take the picture, go to the store and develop it, scan it in and send it.

Perhaps I should start being less lazy.

And I assume you have no friends or neighbors with a digital camera.

I love the idea. However it works out. Cool idea.

That is cool. Not that I'll ever need to do this, but it does add a kind of prize which was previously absent.

What about non-one man bands? Will there be a group photo required?

This is a cool idea in theory -- seems difficult-ish to implement in practice.

Not a problem. Here are 5 steps to a solution:
1. Next time you're at work at traffic jam.com, listen for a major accident where there will be news cameras.

2. Tell your boss you're leaving on a break and go to the location.

3. When you see a news cam, run in behind the news lady, twice. First time making a downward swinging action as if, ummm, oh I don't know, maybe like you are hitting someone with a guitar, perhaps. Then a second time act like you're, hmmm, how about like your are getting hit by a guitar while holding something horny, maybe. Do a few takes with other news channels just in case

4. After they release you from jail, go home, look up the broadcast on the world wide interweb net, and grab a still that best expresses your exuberant act.

5. Now, Google a pic of a violin and a tuba and go to your favorite photo chopping program and exhale your inner bile on to the screen as only you know how.

You don't have to thank me, its all in a days work my friend.
Next caller, your on the air......

Blue wielding a kick drum over his head in a King Kong pose. That's what I'm seeing in my muzzy saturday-morning brain.

That would also also require entering!

Dunno about you but I don't really want to see photos of Hoblit holding something horny, no offense, Hoblit, you're a cool guy and all, but...
