Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls.

If it seems like we're doing a lot of contests right now it's because we are. And before we bust with more of our new contests, let's give a shout out to some who won last week.

LAist would like to congratulate Adam for winning the Name the Year of the Dog contest. He chose "Pencil" which also happens to be the name of the dog in the film. Not the most creative but thats the luck of the random pick. Adam enjoy your screening of the new Molly Shannon flick that opens in limited cities on 4/13 - but you will see it before anyone else!

Our other random winner is Nicole for the Fall Out Boy contest.

Nicole, we hope you enjoy your two tickets to see FOB at the Forum on the LA stop of the Honda Civic Tour with The Academy Is..., +44, Cobra Starship, and Paul Wall. If you didn't win, there still might be tickets available if you hurry.

I love them because I don't understand a word that they're saying and I like my pop music to be as incomprehensible as it is catchy and fun to rock out to, especially when you're drunk. If you've ever seen those misheard lyrics youtube vidoes, you know what I mean.

And, I have a friend, who actually paid money to be in the fan club, and who even has a membership card.

You can't (well, actually, you can for just $35) buy that kind of devotion.

Plus, Petey is the only guy who wears more eyeliner than me on a consistent basis and for that, he must be applauded, lauded, feted and celebrated. I worship at his eyeliner-y feet.

I like that people abbreviate it to FOB, which is unintentionally hilarious.

And, last but not least, "the fat guy" aka Patrick is my favorite. He's the one singing so incomprehensibly, and thus, I must worship him, also.

***For the record, I am not, nor have I ever been, a fourteen year old pretending to be sixteen.

- Nicole
