CURRENT PRIZES: $305 for the rap battle – $55 for the ASCII contest
The deadline for both contests is midnight, NYC time on May 4th, 2017.
The entries will be judged based on votes received from LRH listeners.
Only REGULAR LISTENERS are eligible to vote. This determination is made by l0de. If I don’t know you you can’t vote.
In the event of a TIE at the end of voting for either contest, l0de will cast the tiebreaking vote. I will otherwise abstain from voting.
ALL ENTRANTS are allowed and encouraged to vote for themselves. If you are an entrant, you are allowed to vote for yourself even if you are not a regular listener.
ALL VOTERS must both CALL THE SHOW and state their vote in IRC for their vote to be counted. There is ONE and only one exception to this rule, Kongfuzi, who put up $250 for the rap contest and who I think is some kind of mongo deaf-mute.
I plan to end voting at midnight, but circumstances may dictate that we need to close the polls a little later (like if we get a fuckton of entries).
ONCE A VOTE IS MADE YOU CANNOT CHANGE YOUR VOTE.
FOR THE RAP CONTEST: YOU CANNOT CHANGE THE LENGTH OF THE INSTRUMENTAL. Don’t add extra bars etc. If your entry is longer or shorter, you are disqualified.
I think that’s everything. I’ll try to run this as fairly as possible since there’s actual money involved. You should know: there is no guarantee everyone who pledged money into the pot will pay up, and if they don’t, that money will be subtracted, I will not make up the difference. I can only personally guarantee the $25 I have put into both pots. However I can guarantee that any money that I collect for the contest WILL be awarded to the winner. Check with vap0r the winner from last week if you want confirmation we pay up. Ask any questions below, I will update this post with any good qs.
#LRH is hosting an ASCII CONTEST and RAP CONTEST on 5/5 at 10EST.
The ASCII contest is open to anyone, your ascii must be no larger than 80 characters wide and 100 characters tall and must render correctly in IRCcloud with ascii mode on. (if it renders right in irssi it will work in IRCcloud). Simply join #LRH on friday and await instructions. The prize is currently $50 and will increase probably.
The RAP BATTLE for 5/5 is open to all who wish to submit a track. There will be a cash prize of at least $25 (subject to increase) for the winning track to be determined by verified listener call-ins. You must be a regular listener of LRH to vote, l0de reserves the right to disqualify any votes from unknowns, or fraudulent bullshit. You have to both call in to LRH and post your vote in IRC to be counted.
This week’s rap topic is TIME.
HOW TO ENTER!
The beat for the battle is below. Record yourself rapping over the track and get it to l0de on EFnet by MIDNIGHT ON THURSDAY 5/4. Post your MP3 to either soundcloud or youtube and either tweet the link to @l0de or message me on irc.
THIS IS THE BEAT YOU HAVE TO USE BELOW. RIGHT CLICK THE LINK AND SAVE AS TO DOWNLOAD IT (shoutouts to l1tup for forcing me to idiot-proof this description)

10:33 AM<tau>without hollywood, usa would be as poor as brazil.
10:33 AM<tau>artists are the trolls who confuse the mass’s minds.
10:33 AM<tau>and guide humanity towards a cruel destin.
10:34 AM<l0de>Wow tau, you seem highly knowledgable about fake made up shit
10:34 AM<l0de>Please tell me more
10:35 AM<tau>l0de well, your last commentary makes me think you’re the one who is aware of what goes on in the world of politics.
10:35 AM<tau>l0de please, elucidate me.
10:37 AM<l0de>No problem friend. The universe is mechanically deterministic and all outcomes have already been decided. All non-roma are merely automatons, whizzing through the rail shooter of their meaningless lives.
10:38 AM<l0de>Only my people, with their genetic ability to move between different timelines have any semblance of agency in this rigid and uncaring universe.
10:39 AM<l0de>I hope you can see now how your insane and stupid theories pale in comparison to the dictatorial reality you now realize you inhabit. Good day to you.
