Hey guys! I'm sorry for having been so utterly unreliable of late. I hope you have had a wonderful 2013 and that you're all feeling fired up to try something a bit different. I don't know if many of you remember when I ran a challenge called May Mixup Madness a few years ago but we are repeating it this May because, well, we all need to kickstart those creative engines and create something entirely unique.
May Mixup Madness follows a similar structure to the cento poetic form in that you choose ONE musician or poet and use lines from various pieces of theirs. You can't use more than one line from each piece so if you're creating an 8 line, 2 stanza poem, you will need 8 different songs or poems to draw from. Once you have your musician/band/poet and your chosen lines, all you have to do is stitch them together to create something new and amazing!Choose it, Find it, Stitch it!
ONE line per piece of their work from as many pieces as you like.
it together! Stipulations
Please note us with your pieces so we can collect them in this folder.
In your artist's comments, please link this blog and mention the artist you used and the songs/pieces in order. If you would like to enter the contest to potentially win a sub, you can only enter ONE piece.
Choose your favourite one and note us with this entry and we will include it to be judged. All of your entries can be entered into the folder though.
Have an incredible time creating something totally different. EXAMPLES
Twenty-FiveYoure something that never should have happened.
Didnt we meet in the night in my sleep somewhere?
When you sleep and you dream and theres no-one there,
You dont wanna know whats running through my mind
No more Mr. Nice Guy!
And I know trouble is brewin out there,
Your own private pain.
My sins cut deeper than the teeth on a saw
(Dont tell your preacher)
Im so scared your little head will come off in my hands:
Your kingdoms like your body; it dies and goes to hell.
Ive got a never-ending battle inside
And Im trapped inside a night without a day.
Trapped in the MemoryI want to be in another place, PRIZES
It doesn't matter how hard I try,
I don't know what's worth fighting for,
It's all too much to take in,
My walls are closing in.
Sometimes I need to remember just to breathe
Something has been taken from deep inside of me,
I can't feel the way I did before,
Its like nothing I can do can distract me,
The darkness holding me tightly,
All I ever think about is this.
There's no escape
Lifes harder everyday,
Feel it in your chest,
Making your heart stop,
I can not explain to you anything I say or do,
All I've got is what you didn't take.
You wouldn't even recognize me anymo
1st: One Year Sub
2nd: 6 Month Sub
