Right,

"it's lyrical combat gentlemen, grab your pistols"

The Challenge

I'm looking for good men, stout and true, and fair maidens of an artistic persuasion to take up a photoshop duel of epic proportions.

The Rules

800 x 600
48hr (+ time difference) for returns
Must incorporate a visible portion of the proceeding volley
Must be based on song lyrics - include the title/artist in the name of the picture, and interprete the lyrics...

I'm looking for 4 more combatants, 2 volleys apiece in order - sign up here... we'll establish serve order once we have the participants

So, the particpants thus far are:

MrChuckles
ILikePie
*to be confirmed*
VitalStatistixs ;)
BlueSamurai (provided he finishes up his battles)

At least 1 more needed - I'm willing to extend the participant list further if there is lots of interest.

MrChuckles
11-30-2002, 09:00 PM
Ok then,

we have the five -

MrChuckles
ILikePie
Nayades
Sk8Krog
BlueSamurai

Sadly VitalStatistixs failed to rise to the bait and compete in a battle, :( shame on him!

I'll post the serve shortly, we'll go in the order above, then repeat for round 2. Then we'll take it from there... anyone else fancies joining in we'll see how we go and try and slot you in.

May the music be with you :cool:

I can understand hiding from gerbick - he scares me :scared:

Thanks for your comments - I'm working on a flag for your battle as we speak - I hope you're not a Yank... ;)

Hey MrChuckles, what wrong with us yanks? Were not all bad..:o(

MrChuckles
12-03-2002, 02:04 PM
WOW!

This is getting good! :D

Primates - I don't have anyting against the yanks in particular - It's just the theme for my flag for Vital's battle - all will be revealed soon...

nayades - you up boy!

Vitalstatistix
12-03-2002, 06:13 PM
Eeep! Your gonna have a good flag in my battle :eek: Me loose :(

Love the volley Ilikepie ;) Good to see it working :)

iLikePie
12-04-2002, 03:41 AM
hey guys...
really sorry about my volley, i had to quickly post it and i didn't have time to check if it worked, then i haven't been able to get on the computer till now

i wonder why 3primates could get it when everyone else couldn't....

i'll have to look into my hosting, becuase it's supposed to allow hotlinking

anyways, looking forward to seeing the next volley

Stuart

Hiya Stuart,
I just traced the server back and checked out the directory structure. You had used a lowercase s in stuart instead of an uppercase..

Other than that it was ok..
3PRIMATES

iLikePie
12-04-2002, 06:07 AM
aaaah

you're a smart man, 3primates :)
thanks for the detective work...

although i do find it a little surprising that people can just trace the directory and look at all the files. Can this be done in any webspace, or only ftp's? not like i have any files to hide :P but i thought you needed the p/word to access the ftp

anyhow, thanks again

Stuart

Hey, thanks :cool:
I took a photo of some building that fell, eraced some of it, then duplicated the layer. the duplicated layer, I resized to make it larger and deleted blocks outof it. Then, i went back into the first layer and made a 1 px high selection and put it in a new layer between the two. I then streatched it till it filled the images and goofed with the opacity a little.

12-07-2002, 07:22 AM
Sounds complecated :) It's worth all the hard work though...that volley was nice :)

Saint Benedetta
12-07-2002, 08:40 AM
I can never fully remember what I did in my volleys :)

MrChuckles
12-07-2002, 11:08 PM
Blue Samurai - yeah, you're still going next - let us know if you are overloaded - we'll bump someone up the list.

Saint Benedetta
12-07-2002, 11:25 PM
I know that Blue's kinda busy. I don't mind bumping in, but I don't mind waiting for his volley either.

BlueSamurai
12-08-2002, 12:57 AM
Hey guys thanks:) Yea could you guys bump me to the bottom:(............I have to go out of town to visit some family........I will be back and have a volly up Sun or Monday night, depending on when I get back.

TY. Look forward to seeing some great vollies when I return;)

No troubles, I'm really looking forward to Saint B's volley - I loved your beach culture one for the Aus vs US battle :)

Have fun Blue Samurai!

is it Blue Sam next?

nayades
12-09-2002, 05:09 PM
oh yes! that's a good one!:)

chuckles, can i have a track without lyrics.. ( i know its called lyrical battle, but im just hooked on to london funk allstar, and can't find any song with lyrics)

however, if this means i'm getting off the theme, i'll find another group that has some interesting lyrics.

cheers

MrChuckles
12-09-2002, 05:44 PM
Provided that you can incorporate the feel of the title in there somewhere we should be able to let that slide ;) (sshh don't tell anyone)

Failure to adequately comply will result in you being forced to do a penalty volley based on Status Quo :D

I've got no problems with you going for the above interpretation of the rules - put it to the rest of the participants - majority decision carries it.

nayades
12-09-2002, 06:52 PM
ok then.;)

i'll search another song then. i'm no friend of troubles :D

iLikePie
12-09-2002, 07:05 PM

just one question, which part is from the previous volley? i'm sure you included it, i just can't find it :P

good work...
go nayades!

Saint Benedetta
12-11-2002, 04:12 AM
Nayades, I have a couple of lyrics in We-are-webmasters. If you'd like, reply in my Wax Lyrics thread and I have a few more lyrics from Pink, Sophie Ellis Bextor or Madison Avenue that you could use for the volley :D

Good luck//

Saint Benedetta
12-11-2002, 07:44 AM
Nayades (http://www.we-are-webmasters.com/forum/index.php?act=ST&f=2&t=53&st=0&#entry721), if you're having trouble looking for a lyric for this volley or the next round, I don't mind if you choose one of mine :)

nayades
12-12-2002, 04:43 AM
thnks for the linkie Saint ;)

however the ain problem now is that i've been changing computers (got a brand new one :D), so i'll have the volley by this night.

thanks again.. i think i'll use one of those

iLikePie

i know that nayades has been changing computers, but are the volleys still coming, or have people just given up?

MrChuckles
12-13-2002, 08:15 PM
I'm still in for my second, but I think we'll give a nayades a little longer - we haven't exactly been keeping to the published timescales... :)

If there hasn't been a post by nayades by the time I've done my volley for the mods battle then I'll kick off the second round and we'll have to fit nayades in when he is ready

BlueSamurai
12-14-2002, 01:33 AM
