Kill - Fuck - Marry .. and Haven Quarterly Contest!
Well, no one commented on my last post, where I asked for people's suggestions on a contest to give out a few freebie copies of the Haven's Quarterly magazine .. but it gave me a wonderful idea for the contest that hopefully people will try to do.
There are a number of blog posts on here that have no comments. Some aren't a big deal, specifically mentioning that the Haven Quarterly is now available, or my first introduction post. However, there are some that I would have hoped would be cool enough to have someone comment on them, but they haven't gotten much in the way of love and affection.
I have tagged those postings "zero post" and you'll be able to click on the tag at the bottom of THIS post to see which ones are available. The contest is really easy. Find a caption post from the tag, and make a meaningful comment about it. You can talk about something in the discussion question or on the caption itself. As long as you focus on something to do with the post, that should be fine.
Once someone has commented, it is no longer a "Zero post" anymore, now is it? I think there are 6 or 7 posts with that designation so there should be enough to go around! I certainly wouldn't mind more than one comment per posting, but only the FIRST POST of each is eligible to win. If there are more than 3 people to qualify, I'll pick the best 3 to receive the award. You'll HAVE to be a member of Rachel's Haven to win, but its free to join so get to it!
A few people mentioned that they did not see their comments right away after posting. I believe Blogger has it set up that if you haven't posted to my blog before .. they withhold it from display until I approve it .. this is mostly so that I don't get spam messages in the blog. I have had a few people submit spam links and such in the comment section. Once you hit submit, the next time I pop on, I'll approve the post!
I might run this contest again at some point, with varying prizes.
DISCUSSION QUESTION: I made this caption as a 80's campy action type flick, and I can picture Damien and Tom being played by Rowdy Roddy Piper and Rutger Hauer, and the DeeDee and Kara roles filled by Cybil Danning and Bridgette Nielson. Have you ever played this game, and who would you have starring in a movie version of this caption, both male and female? You can set it in any movie genre and time.
