Drums…drums in the distance…LDB Thread 2022

Is everyone ready for the LITTLE DRUMMER BOY. That little fucker and his drum is coming for you!

If you’ve never done this before…first of all I’d lie to meet the rock you’ve been living under, and second…here are the rules

It’s simple, you just have to make it from 12:01am the Friday after Thanksgiving until 12:00am on 12/26 without hearing a second of any version of the song The Little Drummer Boy. Sounds easy, right? WRONG

HERE ARE THE SPECIFICS OF THE COMPETITION

1. If you realize at any time you’ve heard any of the song…you whistled it, you hummed it, someone sang a few bars, it came on at Walmart…you’re out. If you’re watching a show and it plays at all you’re out (there are lists online that warn you what episodes of shows to avoid)

2. This one comes up every year. You can’t be eliminated by someone trying to eliminate you. If someone knows you’re in the contest and intentionally makes you hear it…you’re still alive…for now.

That’s basically it. Any questionable calls can be run by me.

Oh! You cannot be eliminated by Missy Elliott’s song, Work It. I refuse to run a contest that limits listening to Missy Elliott.

If you want to be in just post here and let me know. I’ll put your name on a list here. When the contest begins and you are inevitably eliminated I will move you from the Alive list to the Dead list and you will be greeted by a lovely Christmas image.

I already have my theme and a phone full of pictures. (I warned my wife why there are so many…interesting…Christmas pictures on my phone.

So that’s it! What do you win if you make it? You win the honor of survival.

Let’s get this shit started

    Oh! If you get eliminated by the Pentatonix version that counts as a double elimination and extra shame is brought to you and your loved ones

    I'm in it to win it (but will not, such is life).

    I joyfully await my eventual elimination with my head held high.

    I have won so many years now it feels unfair to others to play. My increasing arrogance hasn't even struck me down. Let's do this again and show everyone how easy it is. I have honestly all but forgotten what those sad little drums sound like. I doubt I will ever learn.

    I've seen things you wouldn't believe. Mangers on fire off the shoulder of Orion. Sleigh bells glittering in the dark at Tannhauser Gate. All these memories will be lost to time, like tears in snow... Time to parumpapumpum...

    I'm pretty sure all my eliminations have been to the Pentatonix version but I can't check for sure otherwise I'll be out.

    Anyway you know I'm in. Wonder what horrific themed images we'll be graced with this year

    Last year we were still pretty shut in, and I nearly made it all the way to Christmas

    This year will have multiple school functions, family parties, and road trips where my partner will insist on holiday music
