Voting! And another question. I'm looking for banner makers, you see. It's piling up on me, and while I'd be happy to catch up, it's still a little too crazy to keep up with. So, if you're interested, answer the second question. Otherwise, just say "No." and move on. Thanks bunches.

Use at least 4 consecutive words from the lyrics provided. You can enter up to two icons. Post your entry(ies) URL ONLY. Again, URL ONLY. Say whether or not you'd like a banner if you win. Use any Star Wars movie. The icon must fit eljay regulations, blah de blah. You know the drill. Happy Iconing.

We'll end this one on Tuesday, August 2nd.

My wings don't sail me to the sky
On my own these wings won't fly
Still I'm not so sure that I know
Can't find no rest for my soul
Can't find no rest on my own
Still I'm not so sure that I know
Man, the trouble is
We don't know who we are instead

Well, 1st and 2nd are tied. So, if you haven't voted, GO VOTE.

Ahem. I'll be leaving for Florida (Yay vacation!) this coming Sunday. I will try to post a contest before then, but it doesn't seem likely to happen. If this does happen then the MOMENT I return (August 1st) I will post a new contest and we will pick up like there was no break.

Sounds good? Wonkabar.

You're the air that I breathe
The sun when it breaks through the clouds
You're all that I need
But I know that you're having some doubts
Beggin' you please girl
I'm sorry I let you down

I'm broken like a promise
I'm shattered like a dream
I'm broken with all my pieces scattered
'round for you to see
I'm broken like record
I sing the same old song
I'm broken like the heart of a man
that's run away from love too long
Girl what about you
What about you girl

Woohoo, I'm going to go ahead and give you contest #14.

This will end Tuesday, July 12th.

Now. Here's your lyrics. Use at least four consecutive words. Use pictures from any Star Wars movie you like. You can enter two icons. Leave the URL in a comment with your entry icon(s). Say whether or not you want a banner if you win.

How dare you call this love,
Ooh thats what they say,
It's an urge you gotta fight!
How dare you call this love,
when it flies in the face of
all that is good and is right

You've got it all and
you're always my first port of call,
This is the happiest I've ever been,
And I know I should wait,
But you're laying it all out on a plate,
And I'm just a pawn when the laws of nature intervene...

Scratch It. Let's Start Again. [26 Jun 2005|05:13pm]

halfajournalist
Okay, let's start again. I'll go unscreen entries in a few and you all can start over. I'm scratching the last contest and starting over. Sound good to everyone? Great. I was just making it more difficult than it really was. So, more simple, and reliable, sw_chorus!!!

EDIT: Then again, we could have voting on the last one. Okay, you conviced me. Voting in the next post. XD

Now. Here's your lyrics. Use pictures from any movie you like. You can enter two icons. Leave the URL in a comment with your entry icon(s). Say whether or not you want a banner if you win. We'll end this... this coming friday, July 1st. Great? Great. Happy iconing.

You woke the morning up
Running off the darkest night
The longest fight I've seen
Here goes a chance I know
Cashing in on all my chips
Let all my ships come fly

And I won't back down
I won't turn around and around
And I won't back down
Doesn't matter what comes crashing down
I'm still gonna stand on solid ground

Won't Back Down by Mat Kearney

While you’re chasin’ ghosts."

No, really. We're still very much alive. [08 Jan 2005|12:39am]

Holidays wiped away any sense of determination I had towards this community. Now they're over and my friday nights are free (my youth group is moving back to weds. nights. ^^) and the best part is I have a paid account. I'll now be able to make real polls. So, I'm giving this another week to wrap up any last entries and we'll begin the voting process. XD

Thank you for your patience.

Btw, I'm planning on give this comm a face lift. Anyone up for a layout contest? If not, I'll just do it myself.

Extension. [04 Dec 2004|05:53pm]

halfajournalist
Okay, guys. With 65 members we should have more than 13 entries, and most of them from people entering twice. SO. Here's the deal. I'm extending the deadline for [ t h i s ] contest and the new deadline is (drumroll please) December 17th.

Why the 17th and not the 10th, you wonder.

Well, the 9th-12th I'm going to be in Hamlet and I'll be a little busy. So, get your entries in! You've got two more weeks! ^^
