Golden Ticket

State of the Veepstakes (http://allah-sulu.livejournal.com/850440.html)

My fellow Livejournalists,

In the past 24 hours, we've seen the vote rocked for the second spot on the Party Party ticket. The polls will close soon, we're not quite sure when, but it's been an amazing experience in democracy in the last day. Last evening, my esteemed and respected opponent Bradwinkle has shown great inroads with the sock puppet vote. They came out in mass quantities and greatly boosted his vote total. Not to be outdone, I, being a scientician, of course went the route of science in an attempt to help our cause. The Science Clones, one of my strongest demographics, came out and voted for myself and Duct Tape Avenger, in the name of science!

This has been a long and drawn out election, but it is not yet over. I encourage you all to go Vote! for the good of our country and say "Yes to Science!", say "Yes to Flavored Vodka!", say "Yes to strong sanctions against grues!"

It is time for a change. Bradwinkle could not lead the Party Party to victory four years ago and neither can Duct Tape Avenger and myself. But it doesn't matter! What matters is change! And to change Vice Presidental Candidates is a change! So vote for change! Vote for us! I personally promise to be the most entertaining half of a vice presidential candidate since Dan Quale! (And that's good comedy, let me tell you!) I can spell Potatoe wrong if you'd like. Vote for us!

Vote for us!

Vote for us!

Live long and prosper.

May the force be with you.

Drink infused vodka.

I thank you for your time this morning.

May $Deity $Verb you, in whatever way you see fit.

And don't forget, Vote for us!

I'm Techempage and I approve this message.

EDIT: This just in. The polls will close when allah_sulu finishes his coffee. So please act now on this limited time offer!

We intterupt your normal Livejournal feed for this.

We don't have any actual footage of allah_sulu drinking the cup of coffee that will decide when the Veepstakes will end. But to build dramatic tension, here is a video of a man drinking coffee.

Who knows when the last sip will be? Only allah_sulu.

With The Scienticians up by only 6 votes and what would seem to be a short time remaining, the tension is building in this amazing Veepstakes.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled LJ, already in progress.

Song Lyric Meme

Ganked from allah_sulu because I was having fun with his version.

How many of these songs can you name, along with the artist and/or source? (Using Google or other search engines is, of course, forbidden.) Comments are screened so that you can still try to guess even after the first person got it right, and I'll post the answers (with video links where applicable) later.

(I will only list the person who got it right first, except for partial credit/full credit situations. However, after I post the answers, I'll come back and unscreen all comments here so you can see how many you got correct even if you weren't the first.)
