Am I doing this right? It's been a long time since I made an ONG and I never did a TaT-ONG.

They'll enter the cave. It is dark in the cave. They are eaten by a grue. Thus end the SilentONGS

Right. It's that CRS again. Otherwise Valarya would have had to cross the 1!

It's molpish for me. Is it sideways on all browsers? Is it sideways if you turn scripts off? (or on?)

Is it sideways if you get out of bed before you view it? :)

edit: It's sidways for me if I "view image". Somehow this seems familiar. It's molpish when I copy image from the page (and paste it into Gimp), and it's molpish when I copy the sideways-displayed image from "show image" and paste it into Gimp. (That is, people look vertical). Seems that my browser is doing the flip on "view image", but the image data is not. This is seamonkey, a gecko browser (like FF)

My first OTTification!

Postby macraw83 » Mon Mar 10, 2014 8:50 pm UTC

This has been pinging around my head for the last few xips, especially the first half of the chorus. I finally put pen to paper fingers to leopard and hashed it out. Sorry if this song already has-will been OTTified in the Past-Future between my Present and yours, but I don't remember seeing it done yet.

Written from the point of view of one of you in the present, about any Blitzer who has made it to the Present (hopefully including me one of these wips):

Molpishly steakish! Love the way you worked the BlitzRocket into it - it's as if the song were written for these lyrics. Have you run into the punsaw yet? There's another ottification of "Rich Girl" which you will soon run into, with a slightly different twist. But redundancy is treeish, as well you know.

I might just be crazy, and I might just sing it some point in the future. I don't know.
I just came across this as I was perusing the thread for the OTTscars - steakish! Did you ever sing it? Got a tune for it?

I'm noticing that it's on NP 503; hope that's not an omen! :)

You've still got 8 and a half hours :)

Speaking of OTTscars voting, just to make sure I've got everyone's votes - I sent a PM reply to everyone whose votes I received, so if you've voted and I haven't replied that means there's been m*stard and I might not have got it. If that's the case please re-send!

Something is eating all my glass chips, and I don't know how to make it stop! Something was eating all my glass blocks too, but I deactivated Panther Salve and I think it's better. But soon I will have no glass chips left. Help me!!

Does this help?

I would say that falls into the category of "Things most hotdog vendors never hear" :D

But my hotdog was getting exciting! I in the peta castles, and getting all the stuff people were talking about getting mips ago. And it's a lot easier to hotdog at work than it is to ketchup at work, since mostly the hotdog is just running in the background. Mostly.

But fear not, you know I always ketchup eventually...
