The Season of Giving Isn't Quite Over Yet
Didn't get everything you wanted over the holidays? We're having two contests with prizes that might tickle your fancy.
First, we'd like to give you Goddess Gwen in the flesh, but we are keeping her for ourselves. Instead, we are giving away an entire bag full of Gwen goods - everything pictured above. For that contest, all you have to do is go to a site like YouTube, Google Video, or Buzznet and show us a great Dance video. Then take the url of the video and paste it in the comments of this post over here. The deadline for that contest is noon 12/28/06 so get to it.
The second giveaway is for two free tickets to see The Flaming Lips, Gnarls Barkley, and our true love Cat Power on New Years Eve at the Galen Center. Plus we also have some bonus prizes! For that contest you simply have to post a link to an online video about LA. For instructions for that one click here. The deadline for entering for that show is Friday at 2pm.
Stay tuned for more contests all year long!
