GIVEAWAY AHOY! Win Free Bon Jovi Tickets!

Picture 11The first concert I ever saw live was Bon Jovi and Cinderella at the Bayfront Center in St. Petersburg, Florida in 1987. At that point in my life it was by far the coolest thing I had ever seen. When my 15 year old self saw Jon Bon Jovi strut out in the same jacket he wore in the "Livin' on a Prayer" video I thought I was going to pass out. I screamed like it was the Beatles. I knew then that I could die happy.

The Winners of Disney's Alice In Wonderland DVD/Blu-Rays Are...


Entries were trickling in until the late hours of Wednesday night.  Well, not so much "trickling in" as "blasting in with the crippling force of a fire hose".   And so the time has come, the walrus said, to talk of many things.  Like shoes and ships and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings.  And why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.  But mostly to announce the winners, of course. 

Random Number Generator had PLENTY of entries to choose from, so let's see what it came up with...

MamaPop Losers Want You To Join Them In Their Quest For Pride

The_biggest_loserThe MamaPop staff is just like you. Fat. But enough is enough. If 12 Step groups have taught us anything, it's that we need each other. So that's why the MamaPop staff started their own Biggest Loser competition. If we can't motivate ourselves, then we need to resort to clashing egos in search of bragging rights. AND YOU'RE INVITED. Unless you're scared.

Miss Homeless Belgium, In Which the Losers Remain Homeless

Miss_homeless_belgium The recent Miss Plastic Hungary pageant that required that its contestants have had extensive plastic surgery threw me for a bit of a loop, because it just seems strange to publicly reward women for disliking their own physical appearance. Oh, wait. We do that all the time. North America came up with The Swan, which required that its contestants also be emotionally scarred enough to agree to on-camera therapy beamed into millions of American households, so who am I to judge?

What definitely threw me for a loop is that, right on the heels of Miss Plastic Hungary, it was announced that Therese Van Belle, 58, is the winner of the Miss Homeless Belgium pageant.

Miss Plastic Hungary is Real, Well Sort Of

Miss-plastic-hungary-reka-urban If you live in Hungary and really want to be in a beauty pageant but you are ugly - or even slightly sub-standard looking, fear not, there is an event just for you.

Well, fear not if you have piles of money.

The Miss Plastic Hungary pageant actually requires that a contestant has had extensive surgical enhancement to qualify.

Oh how I wish I were making this up.

Before the Vampires, there were Wizards (psst... want to win Harry Potter Books? -- Yes, Plural)

HPandtheSorcerersStone_Paperback_lores After months of looking at perfectly sane and respectable adults reading Harry Potter books on my daily commute, I finally gave in and picked up a copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. It seemed strange that perfectly grown adults would go ga-ga over a children's series; it just seemed so infantile (says the woman who had a Tamaguchi on her keychain that she faithfully took care of until the poor thing pooped itself to death when I left it in the car overnight. That unfortunate incident scared me out of becoming a parent for years.)

Anyhow, I read that first book and never again poked fun at an adult reading Harry Potter on the subway. I may have poked fun at them for other reasons, but never for the Potter books. That book grabbed me like A Wrinkle in Time and had me hooked like The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe y'all. And that pre-teen magic is hard to replicate, know what I mean?

If you don't, you really must enter this contest. And if you do know what I mean, you should still enter this contest.
