Wonka's Loss for Lyrics Contest

Willy Wonka's hard-working Oompa Loompas have created a new candy called Giant Chewy Nerds! They're crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside and yummy all over, leaving his music-lovin' Oompa Loompas at a complete loss for words and lyrics. Help them out by entering the Loss for Lyric's contest by September 21, 2008, and you could win a chance to meet Raven-Symone and record a song with her help!

Help the Oompa Loompas!

As you all know, the Oompa Loompas love to sing - but they're at a loss for lyrics right now because they've eaten one too many Giant Chewy Nerds and become totally tongue-tied from the tangy taste! In order for the Oompah Loompas to get their rhyme and rhythm back, Willy Wonka wants you to write some wacky lyrics to your own song about Giant Chewy Nerds and make it into a video. The Oompa Loompas have even created fun graphics and music tracks for you to use in your video! Make sure you use the Oompa Loompa's music, or else you'll be disqualified from the contest. If your video is picked as the winner, you'll get to fly to LA to meet Raven-Symone and she'll help you record your song in the studio!

Upload Your Video

Those of you who live in the US and are between the ages of eight and 18 can log onto www.wonka.com to upload your video, which must be between 30 and 60 seconds long. If you need some help getting started, Raven-Symone has a few words of advice:

  • Stay confident. Do your best and keep a positive attitude.
  • Keep your eye on the prize. Stay focused and you could be in a professional singing studio!
  • Ask your family and friends for their advice. Welcome an honest critique of your song.
  • Take risks. Try different, fun song choices until the recipe is right!

Now that you have Raven-Symone's personal tips, go and create your song and video! Be sure to enter by September 21, 2008. Good luck!

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

SmartSunnyShadow
I feel like that too. My best friend will always hang out with her 'new friends' that I have a really bad opinion about. My friend will treat me rudely all the time and sometimes make fun of me with her friends. But, when I needed her the most in my life, she was there for me, and I told her how I felt. She says that she just wants to hang out with more people and apologized, people can be a little teasy at times.  Also, after seeing each other for a long time, people make new friends and start hanging out with them more, it doesn't mean that she doesn't like you.  This may be different for you, but just tell her about it, she will have to know you feelings at one point.  Hope I helped you.

Nothing happened between us. I just feel like I'm not important to her.

Did something happen between you two in the past? If so, I feel like she might have some unresolved issues with you that you need to discuss with her. And, time doesn't always mean a lot. I've gotten closer to someone before compared to someone whom I had known for 8 years.

Dear Dish-it,                          Me and my friend just started talking again, and it seems like she regrets it. She'll leave me for the people she has only known for a couple of months, when I've been friends with her for a year. Also, she gets annoyed with me, and I don't know what to do.

I'll be honest, I don't think that it's very fair that you're placing so much blame on your mother. Cancer is very hard to heal in any animal or person. She may of been able to help one spot, but that doesn't mean that she was going to be able to heal the rest. There's a slim chance that they could of made it through, but it's probably for the best that she put him down. Cancer is a painful thing to go through for dogs and humans alike. It would of been worse to push it. As for the depression, I understand where you're coming from with it. It's a difficult thing to go through and it makes things hard to do. I've struggled with things in the past and sometimes still do, so take my word on this: Eat. What. You. Can. Don't starve yourself. Don't binge. Don't do anything. Keep eating. Your health matters too. You need to find things to do, like hobbies (drawing, reading, writing, ect.) and spend time with friends when you can. At least talk to your friends, don't push them away. They're there for you, even when they might not know how to be. Don't be ashamed to cry, it's perfectly fine too. It's a better alternative of getting things out than a lot of things you could be doing. Do not, under any circumstances, start cutting. Take it from someone who's dealt with it on a personal level in several ways, do not start it. It is not something you "won't get addicted too" and it will not be a "one time thing." Do not try it. Do not start it. Do not try to find "softer" alternatives to cutting. Self-harm is not a fixer, it does not help anything. It isn't something to be ashamed of. It's a personal issue along with mental illness. But it is a very big deal. "And to go and kill him like that instead of getting him help?" There isn't always a place to help. Sometimes it won't do the things we wish it would.
