    Wanted to get off my butt and stop wasting my Christmas break, but didn't have the motivation... until Tempmas Week 2 came along. Had tons of fun composing, recording, and watching the number next to my name in the poll :P

    Congrats to Rob and my fellow runners-up, and a huge thanks to the staff here for putting Tempmas together!

    I didn't even know there was a contest. I would have entered something terrible and/or plagiarized.

    bah. "farmin" should have won it imho. 2nd place one had a festive tone, lyrics were on point, and full of humor.

    the first place one sounded like a plagerized nickelback song.

    Haha thx for making me laugh ... I haven't heard the same Nickelback songs you heard I guess ;) but I agree that Framin's song was amazing. Go check his remixes: http://www.youtube.com/liltommyj

    Yes, maybe farmin's song had more Christmas feel to it... but when it comes to music, judgement is hardly objective, it comes down to personal preference. That is why we went for public vote.

    Also, I remember hearing Nickelback a while ago... that's totally not what I remember :wtf: maybe you're thinking of another band?
