2014 Gunfight!

Anyone here confident enough about their poetry that they could outgun another poet in a 30 to 60 minute quick draw? I have my doubts. I've seen Tzara cower at the hands of Remec, and I've seen Annie cry at the thought of writing a Sestina.

Come one and all, if you dare. Two challengers and three judges are needed for a real time gun sling. Mwah hahaha!

To set the record straight, I did not cower. Even to Remec, who can be quite cowerable. Cowerish. Coweringishly.

I might have cringed a bit. Maybe.

But that was probably because I had something in my eye.

Depending on when you set this up, I'll be a judge, if needed.

If we can't get something together before the holiday season, then I suppose we can shoot for the start of the New Year. I'll just bump for now.

Lovely to see everyone again, by the way. It has been a while.

The gunslinging competition isn't for everyone, but I'm so happy to see you signing up again, Remec.

I think the Gunfight challenge can be a pulse-pumping thrill for participants, but also for the judges.

So, what we have now is one contestant (Remec), one possible contestant (Butters, so let's try to convince her to commit) and two judges, Lauren and Annie, who wants a form competition, but we'll see, we'll see.

One more judge is required (and if we can't convince Butters, then we'll need another contestant).

P.S. to Butters: Haha, good thing we have mutual friend or I might not have caught your name change, but frankly I can't unsee the South Park character now.

Also, no prob and next time, Todski!

What are the judges going to be looking for?

And what are the minimum requirements per bullet?

Looks like you have a 3rd judge, Chuck... if T-zed can't participate due to time constraints, I should be able to throw an opinion in on some poemsies

I'm very sorry I shall have to back out. I'm not well, don't expect to be recovered for a while and feeling very sorry for myself. I'm most dreadfully sorry to let everyone down but although it's a physical thing my brain is foggy through painkillers and lack of sleep

I live in Harlem and work in the Bronx. I have no interest in guns whatsoever. That said, I'll submit my bubbling little intoxications to a panel of blinded taste testers any day of the week(though Tuesdays are not as good as others).

I'd fight Pelegrino, Magnetron or 12, but not on a Tuesday. Tuesdays are sacred.

Gonna happen Butters, gonna happen. Annie is out as a judge, but Magnetron is in, and if we have Remec and Butters as Gunslingers, and Lauren and Mags (excuse the nickname, and judging is easy, you need only follow the rules outlined in the competition) as judges? Unless I missed something, we only need one more judge to begin.

I'll wait for Playcatch? Who might like to also be a judge, to confirm, before I solidify a date.
