BARREL OF MONKEYS


*Monkey* *Monkey* *Monkey* *Monkey* *Monkey* *Monkey*



This will be a ten day music blogging activity
that runs during WDC Birthday Week...ish (September 1st-10th)!



*Monkey* The Rules *Monkey*


*VinylY* Pick a celebrity from the world of entertainment, any celebrity. It could be a musician, a movie/television actor, screenwriter, Broadway or film producer, etc. Your challenge is to come up with ten songs that are directly connected to that celebrity in some way (i.e., no other degrees of separation or intermediary connections).

Example:
JENNIFER LOPEZ
*CheckGr* "Jenny From The Block" by Jennifer Lopez (a song from one of her albums as a recording artist)
*CheckGr* "Control" by Janet Jackson (a song from the soundtrack to Hustlers, a movie that she starred in)
*CheckGr* "How Will I Know" cover by Jessica Sanchez (a song by a contestant on an American Idol season she judged)
*No* "How Will I Know" by Whitney Houston (it takes two steps to connect... Jennifer to American Idol... the contestant's cover to the original song)
*No* "Since U Been Gone" by Kelly Clarkson (it takes two steps to connect... Jennifer to American Idol... the season she judged to a season she didn't).
*No* "I Need to Know" by Marc Anthony (it takes two steps to connect... Jennifer was married to Marc... this is Marc's song)


*VinylY* All ten songs are due by 11:59PM WDC time on September 10th, so you have plenty of time to work at your own pace, plan things out, and give us ten great songs that are chronologically linked together!


*VinylY* For each song, you'll need to create a blog entry that includes the following:
          *Bullet* The name of the song and the artist(s) performing the song
          *Bullet* How this song connects to the celebrity you've chosen
          *Bullet* A link/embedded video for a YouTube video or other online source where the song can be heard and/or the lyrics can be found
          *Bullet* A little something about why you chose the celebrity and this particular song
          *Bullet* Also, since it's WDC's birthday week, we also want you to do one of the following for each day's song entry:
                    *Bullet* Tell us one thing you love about WDC, and why
                    *Bullet* Tell us one of your favorite memories, activities, new site features, etc. from a WDC Birthday Week in the past.
                    *Bullet* Give a shout out to someone on WDC you admire, and tell us why
                    *Bullet* Read A Newbie  , review their work, and post a link to the review
                    *Bullet* Tell us about about an experience in your life that somehow involves the number 21.


*VinylY* Post your entries here in the forum when they're finished! All ten entries must be posted by 11:59PM WDC time on September 10th. You can either post them individually or all in one forum post.


*Monkey* The Prizes *Monkey*


*Monkey* Each participant who successfully completes the challenge will receive:
