Brent will pay OB to video himself singing. (in Public Record)

QBOddBird February 2 2008 6:15 PM EST

<Brent> OB, I will give you $20 if you record a video of yourself singing "I'm So Sick".
<OddBird> really. $20, eh?
<Brent> Yes, sir.
* OddBird now has to get his friend to let him borrow his Xbox360.
<Brent> Make a PR thread if you're serious, and I'll hold my end of the bargain.
<OddBird> Cool, I'll do it.

I just have to get a tape recorder and usage of an Xbox360. :) Hopefully he'll come down from Auburn this weekend and I can do it then...anywho, here's the PR, Brent. =0)

SNK3R February 2 2008 6:18 PM EST


Just for the record, you need to record a semi-decent quality video (read: the quality should be good enough so that I'm not looking at black shadows the entire time).

Also, the song should be sung ala Rock Band microphone. "I'm So Sick" by Flyleaf.

SNK3R February 2 2008 6:20 PM EST

Oh, and friends are welcome to join your video, playing guitar, bass, and/or drums, but you need to be heard.

Film editing/zooming is encouraged, but not required. :)

TheHatchetman February 2 2008 6:21 PM EST

hehe... what they're not telling you is that SNK is now OB's agent, and will sell the video for profit. Seriously... Who wouldn't pay 250k for a ticket to see OB sing "I'm so sick"? :P

QBOddBird February 2 2008 6:27 PM EST

That's no problem.

Can't wait to play Rock Band for the first time. :)

AdminG Beee February 2 2008 6:37 PM EST

I'm contemplating paying $30 for you to NOT record a video of you singing...

SNK3R February 2 2008 6:41 PM EST


I'm paying $5 more for him to sing in the higher-register (ala the same register as the female vocalist) and he'll also wear a pirate wig (outfit).

Total of $25.

QBOddBird February 2 2008 6:42 PM EST

Bam. I'll own it. Pirate wig and all.

AdminG Beee February 2 2008 6:48 PM EST

Remember the Mushu pic OB. This video will never ever go away...

Mikel February 2 2008 9:29 PM EST

hehe the things we'd do for money :)

ActionAction February 2 2008 9:35 PM EST

This is the best PR thread ever. OB, you sir, are awesome.

Wasp [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] February 2 2008 10:38 PM EST

This I got to see. Will it be available to watch??

A Lesser AR of 15 [Red Permanent Assurance] February 2 2008 10:57 PM EST

It's our youtube video!

Flamey February 3 2008 1:12 AM EST

woo, flyleaf, you mean screaming female vocals? :)

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] February 3 2008 10:02 AM EST

In the hotpants? Or are there no wardrobe requirements?

Wizard'sFirstRule February 3 2008 10:09 AM EST

is it going to be on youtube or something? am I welcomed to dl a copy? can I keep it? I will pay 20k cb money for a copy. seriously.

QBOddBird February 3 2008 10:40 AM EST

Only 20k? I'm hurt.

Bast, I'm going to be so costumed up that I can't be recognized. No way am I showing my face on the net (likely YouTube, by the time this ends) wearing anything where I would be recognizable.

Wizard'sFirstRule February 3 2008 11:29 PM EST

considering I have a futures forge contract to pay and 9m in debt, 20k is very generous.

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] February 5 2008 12:03 PM EST

Well now... I'm surprised I didn't hear about this earlier... I will give you 250k for an illegal bootleg copy of this when it is done ^_~

Oh and singing Flyleaf isn't that hard on Rockband... its playing the drums on any difficulty other than medium for this song thats the pain... and yes... Expert Guitar is easy for this song if you play bass ^_^

GummyBear February 5 2008 12:29 PM EST


SNK3R February 5 2008 5:09 PM EST

DrAcO, if you really think difficulty is the point of this doing, you should seriously reconsider reading the thread again.

QBOddBird February 5 2008 5:35 PM EST

Yeah. The point is for Brent to have an awesome video of me singing to Flyleaf to, to watch every once in a bit and have a laugh about. =)

But I'm not going to be recognizable, so it doesn't matter to me. Free money! :D

Oh yeah, and I'm going to own this song.

SNK3R February 11 2008 5:19 PM EST

Chicken out yet? :P

QBOddBird February 11 2008 10:17 PM EST

Not chickening, just waiting for a 360 and a rock band game to come available. And no, I'm not doing this a capella for you. ~_^

j'bob February 11 2008 10:50 PM EST

"i'm-a gonna do this one for ya a capella, that means i'm-a gonna do it with my hat-on"

SimplyNic February 11 2008 11:36 PM EST

xD Rofl this should be amusing...

SNK3R February 12 2008 12:04 AM EST

You suck for not doing this a capella-style. What, decide that you CAN'T sing? :)

QBOddBird February 12 2008 12:26 AM EST

Well you weren't offering the mandatory $75. *grins*

It's a matter of principle.

SNK3R February 12 2008 10:23 AM EST

Says the guy who claims he can sing everything. =\

QBOddBird February 13 2008 1:27 AM EST

Aww, that's not true, you misinterpreted me. I can't sing everything, I can just sing everything better than -YOU-.

*bootywiggles defiantly*

TheHatchetman February 13 2008 1:34 AM EST

/me sang "Stayin' alive" at karaoke last Friday night...

Didn't know I could get my voice that high without a vicegrip...

SNK3R February 13 2008 1:38 AM EST

OB, that almost sounds like a challenge. If I didn't know better, I'd challenge you to a Rock Band duel and out-sing you. But, since I'm a nice guy, we'll just let Mr. I-Can-Sing-Everything have a go and make that video that he's chickening out on. :P

QBOddBird February 13 2008 11:49 AM EST

I'm afraid a challenge is no good...while it would be satisfying to sing you into the ground, my main motivation here is $25.

Therefore: Any sing-offs against OB incur a $25 attempt fee, along with the loss of one's pride.

SNK3R February 13 2008 12:18 PM EST

Since you're not doing the a capella, it's down to $20.

QBOddBird February 13 2008 12:30 PM EST

Ooooh, Brent's backing down from his original deal. ;)

Fine then, no wardrobe!

QBBarzooMonkey February 13 2008 12:31 PM EST

No wardrobe? Does that mean you're doing it...


QBOddBird February 13 2008 12:35 PM EST

Nah, that'd be -more- money, not less. It means I'm not going to dress up and look awesome while I sing. Probably more of a 'standing there with my back turned to the camera' deal.

Bull3t F4c3 February 13 2008 1:09 PM EST

gahaha...this pr thread delivers. never thought id say that

SNK3R February 17 2008 5:11 PM EST

I raise you $5 more for the costume (and camera on you, not your back). $25 total, without the cool a capella.

QBOddBird February 18 2008 1:19 AM EST

Good, that's back to par. :D

Side note: My friend came down today, but did not bring his 360. He took her mustang, and said that with all his luggage + his fiance's, he didn't have room for it. Which sucks. I may have to drive a couple hours and go visit him just so I can do this...

AdminNightStrike February 18 2008 1:29 AM EST

Why do you need an xbox? Just play an mp3 from your computer.

QBOddBird February 18 2008 1:31 AM EST

...except that

1) I have no MP3 of this song

2) He wants me to do it through the Rock Band game for 360.

AdminNightStrike February 18 2008 1:41 AM EST

QBOddBird February 18 2008 2:03 AM EST

Thanks NS! Got that video downloading now....

wow, female screaming is going to be difficult. :)

AdminNightStrike February 18 2008 2:05 AM EST

Yes, after watching the video, I was a little curious as to why you are doing a rendition of a female part. I'm somewhat reminded of the advice that John Travolta gave The Rock in Be Cool.
