    ok – this doesn’t really go with the ‘addams family’ music, but..my first thought was ‘down with the sickness’ by disturbed. (did you see the recent version of ‘dawn of the dead’?) there are two versions of this song, one cool hard rock version (by ‘disturbed’), and another, “smooth” version , i believe it was sung by richard cheese, which would probably go better with your animation. which rocks, btw…

    Amanda, it’s love, what can I say?

    Sheila, thanks for your suggestions!

    Clown, that is a good one.

    e.Craig, if you have one in mp3 format, email it to me.

    BPR, how would you like me to say my name, eh? And if you look closely, you’ll see several bloggers in the background.

    Geeky, ok, thanks for the suggestions!

    NYCWD, that does flow, but if only it said “Adam’s Family” instead of “The Addams Family”, I’d be happier.

    Mr. Fabulous, “I Feel Pretty” might be a good one. Did you see yourself in the video?

    YGraine, I have that one by Richard Cheese – I’ll have to try that. Thanks!

    RW, you realize you’re in there, too, right?

    How cute! You are such a sweet, nice man. Putting all the bloggers in the background. (that would be a fun contest) Naming the bloggers. I did find RW, you, Miss Britt, Mr. Fabulous. Have to slow it down to figure out the others!!

    Hmm…theme song… :banghead:

  4. Miss Britt

    I refuse to enter your contests since I am not allowed to win because of some bull shit fear you have of me appearing to have “favoritism”. If I can’t win, I won’t play.

    So, I will contribute in other ways.

    a) wax your fucking eyebrows before you do another vlog. Good GAWD MAN!!!

    b) the ice cream picture doesn’t work in animation. Everything is moving but you’re not actually licking. This intro will not be complete until you can make your tongue actually LICK the ice cream.

    Unless you accomplish that, I will consider your intro, and by extension your vlogs, and by extension your blog, and by extension you – a complete and total failure.

    My work here is done.

    Hmm. How about I just give him a stern lecture, then? I don’t want crybabies ruining my steak dinner! 😀

    (If I don’t get my steak dinner now I’m going to be super mad. I’ve been craving that damn steak dinner for … 3 months now?)

  6. tana

    I think my suggestions got lost, and I put too much time and effort to find all the links and stuff to do it again and/or look stupid if they happen to show up later so I am agreeing that Janelle’s is great.

  7. Avitable

    Trish, there are also images of Dave from Blogography, Heather, AmyD, Poppy, and my wife.

    Sybil, okay, I’ll look for your suggestions!

    RW, actually, it’s a 1968 Camacho.

    Michael, you did indeed get caught by the spam filter. It’s going crazy now.

    Cap, I’ll give that one a try again.

    Melanie, that’s a good one – thanks!

    Janelle, that is a good one, and I like the effort of putting them on Youtube. You’re one of the serious contenders.

    Poppy, of course you did!

    Robin, I’ll have to check that one out.

    Britt, if yours is the best, you’ll win. Didn’t you win the last contest? And you love my unibrow, admit it. And I guess you’ll just have to consider me a complete failure *sniff*. I’m going to go cry and be a girl now.

    Ygraine, don’t sell yourself short! Richard Cheese’s version was pretty good.

    Tana, I caught it in the spam folder and saved it. Thanks for the suggestions!

  8. Poppy

    Oh, wait. Is that Amy next to RW? Whoops. Am I even actually in there? I’m so confused, she and I look a lot alike in stick figure form. (But NOT in real life form. She’s way taller and skinnier than I am. 🙂

  9. Wayne

    I read this in my feedreader first and immediately came up with the perfect song.

    Then I went to the website and read the comments, hoping no-one thought of it first.

    Then I saw the comment about Sesame Street and was very anxious, but fortunately, it didn’t steal my thunder.

    Ok, ready? See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BovQyphS8kA if you need help with the rhythm, melody or context.

    Now here are the lyrics.

    Tact is for pussies, that’s good enough for me.
    Tact is for pussies, that’s good enough for me.
    Tact is for pussies, that’s good enough for me,
    oh pussy, pussy, pussy starts with me.

    (repeat as necessary)

    Surely someone in this crowd could record it for Mr. Adam.

  10. Avitable

    Poppy, of course you’re in there. Just watch it again. You and Amy look totally different. I don’t think you’re next to RW, though.

    Tracy, I meant to say to you that I’ll check out your song because I hadn’t heard of it. I may have to add more people later, though.

    Robin, oops. I merged my response to you and Tracy. I meant to tell you that if it was “Adam’s Family” instead of “The Addams Family”, I’d like it more.

    Wayne, that would be perfect if I were redoing the song with new lyrics. I’ll have to test it with the existing lyrics to see if it fits.

  11. Kentucky Girl

    You could go with:

    It’s a Small World
    or
    oompa loompa song
    or
    It’s Raining Men
    or
    My Ding-a-Ling
    or
    Nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea from Pepto-Bismol.

    There are lots of FANTASTIC tunes out there that would work well.

    :boobs1: :boobs5:

  12. Crazy Lady in Vegas

    My 1st thought was “I’m a Barbie Girl” by Aqua, but someone else has already suggested that. My other suggestions would be “I touch myself” by the DeVinals, or “Lucky Ball and Chain” or “My Evil Twin” both by They Might Be Giants. Or “Puttin on the Ritz” by Taco.

  13. ygraine

    okay…this one’s a bit off-the-wall…or maybe waaaay off the wall. i was sitting at my desk and suddenly thought of diana rigg in the “mrs. bradley mysteries”, a show that was on pbs for awhile…(not sure if you ever caught that series, but btw she’s f*cking brilliant in it)…anyway, that series had a really great song (from the 1920’s) as the credits rolled – it’s called “You’re the Cream in my Coffee’…and somehow, it seems to match your intro..at least i think so…here’s the link:

    this is probably the strangest suggestion, but i liked it…

  14. Janelle

    Mike, I have been checking out my competition and I think I might just have been beat (because I was a winner already in my head nevermind what Adam had to say :woohoo: )…You did a great job…maybe we should have a “Intro Dance Off” like Justin & Britney after the break up, LOL…no really, you did a great job! Nicely done! BUT…I still like mine :heartbeat: Let me know what you think…. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2dBL7S8141Y

  15. Mike

    @ Janelle: Arrrrr, you saucy wench (it’s talk like a pirate day!)I really like yours, that’s why I knew after watching yours that I had to work extra hard on mine. I think “Why can’t we be friends” is an excellent choice. 🙂
