CONTEST – Stars Signed Swag
Stars released their new album In Our Bedroom After The War digitally over a month ago and will release it in physical form on September 25. This record is not relevant to this contest. Instead, I’m turning the clock back a couple years to 2005’s Set Yourself On Fire and this past May’s remix collection of said album, Do You Trust Your Friends?.
The former was the band’s big breakthrough album, making them one of the bigger-profile act in the country and abroad while the latter was a self-curated record of remixes and covers by friends and associates that garnered reviews ranging from faint praise to raging vitriol. I myself haven’t heard it but suspect my opinions would fall more towards the “interesting, but unnecessary” end of the spectrum.
But I’m pretty sure no one will complain about the existence of the record when taken in the context of a free, autographed slab of vinyl. Or plastic. As the case may be. Ahem. Anyways, courtesy of Arts & Crafts, I’ve got a bundle of Stars stuff to give away, “a bundle” being the scientific term for “five”. Specifically, the following:
- 1 copy of Set Yourself On Fire on vinyl LP, autographed by the band
- 1 copy of Do You Trust Your Friends? on vinyl LP, autographed by the band
- 3 copies of Do You Trust Your Friends? on CD, autographed by the band
You can have a look at the goods here.
To throw your proverbial hat into the proverbial ring for one of these very literal prizes, read the following fine print (actually rendered in exactly the same size as the not-so-fine print):
- You must leave me a comment on this post answering this rather cryptic and yet direct question – “Do you trust your friends to set you on fire?”. Ponder it and reply as you see fit. Winners will be selected on creativity and/or dementia.
- Also note, in your entry, your order of preference for the prizes if you do win.
- You must be a resident of North America.
- You must use a valid email address – spambot-proofed is fine. Even if it doesn’t show up properly in the comment, I will have it in the email notification.
- You must submit your entry by midnight, September 9 – the same day Stars play V Fest.
That should about do it. If I come up with any new conditions, like the next entrant must bring me a cheeseburger, I’ll post that as we go.
