So far, the general consensus has been to start the competition back up in the New Year, something with which I am fine; this gives me more time to fiddle with the list (which I have only barely started) and to find the best pictures of each of the initial seeds. So, Who's Da Boss 2009 will begin just after New Year's Day 2009.

As far as recruitment goes, I want everyone to try and get Who's Da Boss featured by Livejournal. When you're on the Livejournal homepage, you can click down at the bottom, underneath the Spotlights, on "Suggest a Spotlight". If everyone can begin inundating Livejournal with spotlight suggestions for Who's Da Boss, that would be great.

I would also like to announce the first-ever Who's Da Boss Banner Contest! You have exactly one month (until October 18th) to submit a banner for Who's Da Boss to help promote our site. Dimensions and elements are up to you, but keep in mind that it should be appropriate for use on Livejournal and other websites, and that you might want to use popular seeds (or even past Bosses) in the banner. The entries will be judged by me, and the winning entry will receive the equivalent of three featured commentaries to go towards their final score at the end of Who's Da Boss 2009 (thus greatly increasing your chances of winning the right to pick the Elite Four in Who's Da Boss 2010).

It might be better to wait with spotlight suggestions until the next round is about to start. If it were to get spotlighted now, people would forget by the time it was important.

Absolutely. But when Who's Da Boss 2009 starts, I want them inundated. INUNDATED!

I'll admit it... I just kind of lost interest. I got tired of thinking of witty comebacks to match those of the other people commenting. Personally, there's nothing you could do to make me start voting daily... I'll just have to want to find time to do it myself.

Having said that, giving us a few months to get ready is a good idea. Plus, I'm always bored right after new year's so I might be looking for a battle.

To help your list along (and no I am not checking for repeats) :

Chuck Schuldiner vs Death Metal
(This is a good fight because without death metal, Chuck Schuldiner just would've been a dude who died of cancer. Likewise, without Chuck, Death Metal wouldn't be around.)

Dilbert vs The Pointy Haired Boss

Freyja (of Norse fame) vs The Brotherhood of Steel (FallOut is awesome, ok?)

Larry Page vs Sergey Brin (founders of Google)

Snorri Sturluson vs Homer (not the Simpson, writer of Iliad etc.)

Rosa Parks vs Cleopatra

Socrates vs The Canadian [or any random country's] Public Education System

Abu al-Qasim Khalaf ibn al-Abbas Al-Zahrawi vs I (Longest name possible vs the shortest name possible)

Blue Footed Boobies vs Boobies
(Breasts needs to come back in some form)

Posers vs Hosers

Antarctica vs Madagascar

Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition vs Hockey

I could do more.

"Freyja (of Norse fame) vs The Brotherhood of Steel (FallOut is awesome, ok?)"

Scratch that.

"FallOut" vs "Fallout Boy." Just for the sole purpose of getting to use automatic plasma weaponry and nuclear warheads on emo music. Bonus points if using FO1 or FO2 logos instead of FO3.

"Rockband 2 " vs "The Band" for putting musical legends vs pop culture's video games.

Fender guitars OR Warlock guitars. Because those are amazing shapes for guitars.

Ironhide Tom (the single issue free comic book no one read and every one missed out on)

Sackboy (LittleBigPlanet = pretty awesome)

The Fungus That Lives Under Michigan Forest (and is currently the largest organism IN THE WORLD)

An unusually large biology textbook.

Uhhh, when I said 'fender' I was thinking of 'gibson explorer' and didn't say that, for some reason.


Screw it. One of these: http://invention.smithsonian.org/centerpieces/electricguitar/images/04-03_full.jpg
