This is the final of the DDO Olympics Talent competition. While I welcome constructive votes from everyone, bear in mind that only official voters in the competition will have their votes counted in the end.

Each of us will be demonstrating our unique talents. I will compose and perform original music in each round, whilst Josh will film his nunchuck abilities in the dark. Overall voters should vote for whom they determine to be the most talented.

As with my other debate with Josh, the first round will be just for acceptance and for me to say this. Good luck to my opponent and I look forward to a fun competition.


Thanks Larz, and Good Luck

This is going to be fun.
Debate Round No. 1


Unfortunately, I haven't been able to access a microphone in 3 days as my usual webcam one broke, so I'm only able to give you an instrumental. That's OK though - for the next round I'll put up both a new original song and a vocally recorded version of this one.

Youtube version is very low quality, which you can especially hear in the high notes getting compressed. Basically if you're one of those audiophiles who can't stand bad mastering, listen to this version of the song instead:


I believe
That hearts
Are breaking out tonight
In my dreams
Fires burn
Set the downtrodden alight
Round the world
Breaking ice
Fresh as a daisy flows
And we see
The more that we give, more it grows

And it's times like this
That we can pull together
Show the world that we care
Because these times will
Not last forever
The least we can do is be there

Who needs an enemy
When we have each other?
Who needs rivalry
When we care for one another?
If we agree
We could do so much to help this world
We'll stand together like sisters and brothers

We can succeed
Working together
To overcome grief
And make the world better
You know I believe
Our hearts are all broken
For you, tonight
Our hearts are all broken for you

In our world
In our home
Never need we be alone
But for the
Shoulders that
Would not permit crying on
It's our day
To stand up
Let our compassion be heard
Round the world
It's absurd
To deny them what they deserve

Leave all barriers
And break all boundaries
To help your people in need
Shine your light
To all the countries
And be a savior indeed

[bridge repeats]

[chorus repeats x2]


Josh_b forfeited this round.
Debate Round No. 2


I have no idea what happened with that forfeit, but never mind. I'll proceed on the assumption that my opponent doesn't intend to forfeit this whole competition.

In that case, here's just my fully recorded version of that last song. This way we'll still have the same number of demonstrations of our talents by the end of the debate. I really like writing songs that I enjoy listening to, and I'd much rather keep listening to this song for a few more days since it's totally stuck in my head right now.

I look forward to seeing my opponent do something awesome.


I'm so sorry about this debate. I haven't had time this week to make the videos, I wanted to.
I've had family in town, plus midterms.

I concede.
Debate Round No. 3


Pretty much all of my debates in this tournament have been concessions. Oh well.


Our other debate is going well.

Even better instrumental version of my first song. Nothing seems to be going right for me in this round, I totally mixed up my 128kbps and 256kbps versions, and as a result the youtube video and picosong track are identical. Now I just feel like an idiot.
