    The Battle of the Sexes II TD--Official Thread

    Greetings boneheads!

    Alesoun and I ran a Ladies vs Gentlemen Challenge a while back, in which the latter got its collective ass kicked to the moon (as usual...sigh), and everybody had so much fun that we thought we'd do it again over September. If memory serves, we're talkin' maybe a month or a bit more, with two rounds of polling.

    We don't have any details yet to post as FINAL info, but it should be up in the next two weeks or so.

    Basically, the way this works is...

    1. You sign up in this thread along with your sexual bent so we know how to list you. (Just say "I'm in, and I'm on the Guy's side," or whatever...) No teams other than "Boys" and Girls"--it's a knock down free-for-all with any weapons at hand. We don't even care about the sides being even. We'll take care of that later in the polling.

    2. The subject/topic is chosen by one side for the OTHER side to do, to allow for maximum squeamishness and just plain dirty pool. We'll do this after we get a decent bunch of people signed up and probably figure out a way to do it in secret, for maximum shock value. Everybody unnerstan that? The girls come up with something that they think we yahoos can't do and make us do it. We come up with something even more disgusting and obnoxiously male that they have to do.

    Challenge will start very near September 1, ±, and run for between 4-6 weeks. Details will be posted closer to the starting date.

    So..."lard your groins" and lets get this sucker moving.



    ...that last quote didn't sound right, did it? Lemme look it up and get back to you...

    ************************************************

    Welcome to the Battle of the Sexes II
    WAR IS DECLARED...AGAIN!

    The Second epic battle of the Sexes of 2009 is officially on. This is no-holds-barred open warfare! The Ladies will be doing a topic chosen by the Gentlemen, and vice versa. In three weeks, we will post two new threads, One for the Ladies to post their final entry, and one for the Gentlemen. At the conclusion of the competition, we will vote for the opposite sex's efforts, with the top 5-8 entries (depending on turnout and quality of entries) from each poll combined into one final poll open to everyone to determine the overall winner AND the winning sex. Trash talk is mandatory and will take place in this thread only. Since this is officially a TD, NO WIPs should be posted, but you can share with your friends and supporters for advice and crits elsewhere or by email if you want.

    OFFICIAL DEADLINE: Sunday, September 20, 2009
    at 11:59 p.m. anywhere in the world
    (which is roughly 12 hours after GMT time)

    There will be NO extensions under any circumstances!

    Topic for the Ladies to do: A Great Day to Die.

    Topic for the Gentlemen to do: Faded Beauty Still Shines


    You can execute your topic in any media you wish, with any interpretation that you wish. Just keep in mind that the "enemy" will be judging your efforts in the first polling. The wide possibility of interpretation should allow you to get a really decent portfolio piece out of this, if that's where you're coming from.

    Identify your entry at the bottom with your name (at least) so we don't have any trouble putting the polls together.

    When posting, don't go extreme with size. The absolute limit set by the Forum's Attachment Manager is no higher than 537 KB, so let's use common sense here.

    ************************************

    Notes:

    •••"A Great Day to Die!" is actually a "challenge of freedom"/battle cry made by Crazy Horse, the Great Oglala Lakota Chief and one of the leaders of the combined Lakota and Cheyenne forces that defeated five units of the US Seventh Cavalry under General George A. Custer at the Battle of Little Bighorn in June, 1876.

    Usually seen today as "A Good Day to Die" or "Today is a Good Day to Die," the statement refers to the desire to die an honorable death, as a statement of bravado in the face of insurmountable odds and probable death, or in the original Native American form, a willingness and even eagerness to give one's life in the name of one's cause. Basically, only a person at peace with themselves and their lives/beliefs/end can meaningfully make this statement.

    •••"Faded Beauty Still Shines" is pretty much self-explanatory. It obviously refers to the fact that not only all that is shiny, fresh and new can be beautiful. True beauty transcends cliché and surface polish, and exists in all things used, old, worn, or even discarded. An old woman of 90 and a forgotten 500-year-old city in ruins can possess the same, or even greater, beauty that seems so obvious in a young fashion model or a modern flashy city center. As artists, we may have an advantage here, since we accept this as something perfectly normal. Impressing the Ladies without doing a hacky sentimental piece, therefore, is going to be a real challenge with this topic.

    The battle has begun. Let the best woman/man win!

    Black Spot, so do I, but I know what you mean...

    Jessi', the topic the guys have to do is totally up to you devious bumpy little bundles of joy. YOU'RE to come up with something that will give us GUYS as much trouble as possible to execute because we're guys with what passes as guy brains. The topic YOU will have to do will be determined by the GUYS, if we can find enough sober to come up with something coherent.

    Just to show my heart's in the right place, I'll tell you a secret---we guys really REALLY hate drawing nude females and giant lesbians from outer space, if that helps...

    Sounds like fun and I've been meaning to start participating more around here.
    So if the topic's good and if I'm able to muster any free time, you can count me
    in on the guys team.
