June 5, 2012 in Events, Site News

The first round of scoring in the LSDJ Showdown is over.

This year, we recieved 60 entries. 7 songs were disqualified for being over 10MB. 1 Song was disqualified for being longer than 6 minutes. That left us with 52 viable submissions.

Finalists were chosen by the 4 core staff, meaning Roboctopus, idevourstatic, Mikee Teevee, and Freque. Everyone picked their personal top 10, meaning 40 votes were cast. The finalists consist of every single song that recieved 2 or more votes (coincidentally). These 10 finalists will now be handed off to our esteemed judges, and the winners will be chosen based upon the highest average scores. The top 3 will receive modified gameboys. The other 7 will get nothing but hugs and respect. Staff  votes and runners up will be made public after the actual judges have turned in their scorecards.

Without further ado, here are the finalists (in alphabetical order):

 

AndaruGO – 1937 Durrrrr

Doomsberry – Rings

Oh it’s Friday, and we saved some for u.

________________________________________________________

Today is Friday. This day is reserved for users and their own events. Users are encouraged to put on their own webshows, organize compilations, contests, and things of that nature.

This week, it’s once again up to you to make something sweet happen.

In honor of the holiday, I’ve repaired the contact form, to make it easier for everyone to submit stuff to our netlabel, or contact me if you’re having login trouble.

Feel free to add details for your events in the comments section below, and post them as well. NoiChan staff will do everything we can to help spread the word.

CONTESTS.
