I mentioned I was going to start following songfight.org. Well a bunch (22) of new songs about Amsterdam were recently posted. When you get to the BOTR section below you'll notice I didn't link to any of the entries like I do when new Song Fu songs are uploaded. The reason being that all the songs sucked...at least all 15 that I listened to before I gave up hope. It might be worth a look if you're from Amsterdam, but otherwise lets just hope for better stuff next time.
My Song Fu round 3 update is a bit late, but here it is. Berg & Jerry won again, which means they squeeked out a victory in every singe round of the tournament. It also means they will move on to battle a Song Fu Master in the final round. More details on that to come in the next week. Here's the top 10 vote getters for round 3, along with my picks in bold:
1. Berg & Jerry - "Inside Jokes" (101 Votes)
2. The Scribbles - "We Miss You Yeti" (91 Votes)
3. Ian & Melissa - "Quickie" (63 Votes)
4. Caleb Lee - "Don't Sing Along" (48 Votes)
5. Godz Poodlz - "Bomb Squad Girl" (44 Votes)
6. Steve Chatterton - "You Chose To Be A Dick" (41 Votes)
7. Edric Haleen - "Acceptance" (36 Votes)
8. The Perfect Place - "wtfpeople20 (Three Short Stories)" (34 Votes)
9. Gorbzilla - "Minuteman" (29 Votes)
10. Sara Parsons - "I Can't Sleep (Manatee Dreams)" (29 Votes)
Darrell Maclaine - "Song" (25 Votes)
His Name Is Legs - "Swan Song" (15 Votes)
The next list is the total amount of votes that each individual or group got throughout the tournament. It's a shame that Tom Milsom & Caleb Lee missed 1 round of the tournament, because each of them had a chance of beating Berg & Jerry. It's also a shame we didn't get to hear more from Jarrett Heather, Mike Lombardo, AudioMohel & Bobby Matheson. I've really enjoyed most of the material they've came up with in these competitions. If someone missed a round, I included how many rounds they did participate in.

Web Site Story
This is the first of 3 clips that have to do with a musical. This video is a mashup of geek culture & West Side Story condensed into a few minutes.
This is a tutting routine, done to some Nintendo Wii music.
The PEN Story
To make this the creators shot 60,000 pictures, developed 9,600 prints, then shot over 1,800 pictures again. It's a very well done stop motion video.
I've posted about a dozen Twitter songs over the past couple years. This one isn't one of my favorites, but it's extremely popular since it's from YouTuber 'nigahiga'.
Origins Of The Moonwalk
I found this video very interesting. I was familiar with 6 of the people in the video, but hadn't heard of a lot of them.
If real life was a musical I think it would be a lot like this video by Ettie Nir.
Here's another number from the musical 'Double Digits'. It was written by Abby Simons (songsfromahat) & Nathan Kersey-Wilson.
