NEED YOUR VOTES.

Our school librarian has entered a contest. He will personally win $2,500 and his new school will also win that same amount. We won't have him at my school next year but he is an incredibly hard worker and deserves this. You may vote once a day through the 13th. Thanks for all your help. Marsha

Vote for "Lily's Purple Plastic Purse"

Lily's Purple Plastic Purse was great and got my vote.

Harold and the Purple Crayon, however, will haunt me to my grave.

I voted, and that was a great video!

I watched them all. I'm kind of surprised the one on Harold & The Purple Crayon is leading. Great book, but I dunno, I thought the video was kind of creepy. I liked the one for Barbara Tuchman. Terrible song, but I thought the guy was passionate, sincere and endearing. I also liked the video for Wicked -- cute kid. (I'm unfamiliar with that particular book.)

Lily's at 33% - Crayon 30%
I thought the Crayon was clever with the concept - but felt like I was watching a movie in Japanese that had English voice overs because of the lyrics not matching the mouths singing - fun for bad monster movies - but for something like this I felt like it should be synched - but that's just MO.

Ok - it's a definite. You can vote every day - but only once every 24 hours.

I just voted again and it registered, but all day yesterday within the original 24 hours, it didn't allow me to vote. I'm glad I posted here after the original vote, because that gave me the time. After 24 hours from then, Voila'

I wonder if people voting for Harold actually watched the other videos - I watched them all - Harold was my least favorite for the previously mentioned reason of the mouth & the singing not matching - I honestly thought that Lily was the best followed closely by Wicked & Tom Sawyer (who are currently tied but I think both are heads above Harold)

Remember what I said about clearing cookies and that if you have voted once in 24 hours don't clear them and do it again to up the vote because you don't want them to get disqualified for cheating
It is very easy to track votes by where the IP's are coming from - and I'm sure with the amount of money involved that they are monitoring for savvy people who might try to up the vote unfairly - vote fairly - they can easily look at where the votes are coming in from IP - if you are voting from multiple computers at work that are on a network - they are all tied to the same IP and that will look like cheating -

Just my "geek" input
