pieces of people we love



Contest: the Rapture CD Giveaway

So here's the deal... the fine people at WiredSet sent me a copy of the Rapture's latest, Pieces of People We Love. While this was a very lovely thing for them to do, I had already purchased said album, because that is what one should do when they enjoy a record. But here's where you luck out, because rather than take this down to the used record store, I'm going to give it away to somebody out there.

If you haven't already heard it and/or didn't make it down to Richard's last night to hear some of the songs live, then you should know that this is their finest release to date. And considering the fact that Echoes was nothing to scoff at (not to mention their indie releases), that means it's a pretty damn good record.

Since the Rapture is one of the finest purveyors of dance music, to get your hands on one of this year's finest (or at least funnest) releases all you have to do is email your name and your favourite photo of yourself dancing/in a dance club/on a dancefloor/you get the idea, and I will pick a winner at random and post some of the photos up here.

E-mail entries to: quinnDOTomori AT gmail DOT com (to enter you must also be capable of unobfuscating an email address)

to recap: the Rapture's cd, photo of you dancing, winner at random, pics on the internet

...and keep it worksafe, this is a family site, aside from some occasional casual swearing.

Pseudo legal stuff:
By entering this contest you assert that you...
1) have a right to distribute any photos you submit
2) consent to having any photos you submit posted on this website and hosted on Photobucket
3) won't sue me (but honestly, that'd be like trying to get blood from a stone)

Contest closes at 11:59PST on November 30th. Good luck!

To whet your appetite, here's the mp3 of "Get Myself Into It" (again courtesy of WiredSet) and the video for "Whoo! Alright-Yeah... Uh-Huh," which would be single of the year, were it not for T.I.

Dear Quinn,

"Funnest" isn't a word.

Love,
your copyeditor

oh cmon... "finest" "funnest"... grant me a bit of a license here

are you going to give me flak for hating on a song about the difficulties of navigating to a night club in a shoddy Mustang as well?
