March Giveaway Recipients

Congrats to Kelly A. and Dawn J. (both jersey folks) on getting the goods for this months giveaway.  Next month we’ll pick one person out of our WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr or Google+ crowd to get a cap and long sleeve t-shirt. 

For now I’ll give you the Cancer Bats covering “Sabotage”. I think they did a great job with the song and the video is just awesome in so many ways. Even if you don’t like the cover, you have to give props on the video if you’ve ever been into the Beastie Boys.

The first time I heard this cover was on my Alma Mater’s radio station WSOU. Coincidentally, there’s a fundraiser going on to get a documentary on WSOU done. If you’re inclined to throw it some coin just hop on over to the Pirates of the Airwaves indiegogo page. You’ll get some cool gear if you donate and if you don’t, you’ll still come away with some background on the best college radio station in the country.

Edit-
Although I’ve posted these ad nauseam, I guess I should show you what we’re giving away in April-

March Giveaway

March is a special month around these parts for two reasons:

(1) It’s the month my oldest daughter was born

and

(2) Fantasy Baseball Drafts start coming online

To celebrate the total awesomeness of this month, we’re going to pick two people out of the pool of folks who follow our blog/practice on WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr or Google+ to get a t-shirt and cap.  You’ve probably seen them before:

So if you follow the blog but haven’t joined us on any of our social media fronts, this may be the month to do it – this is open to anyone who follows us (new or old).

I’m not going to play detective or Mother Teresa this time (last month was a bit of an annoyance) – if you are picked but don’t have an email addy that’s visible on your end and/or don’t reply back to my email within 48 hours then someone else will get the goods.

Giveaway recipients will be selected and announced during the last week of March or first week of April.

Good luck and thanks for checking in!

….a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind.

My obsession with The Twilight Zone is a bit strange; I remember really getting into it when I was around 10 years old.

I’m not talking about the garbage wannabe series they put out in the ’80’s – I ‘m talking about the hard core Rod Serling stuff back in the day, kid.

I don’t mess around.

Anyway, I decided to put up my top ten list of all time favorite episodes in no particular order, although “The Obsolete Man” is my top pick for sure.  There are three things I love about the series:

1. It’s unapologetic position against Fascism and Communism

2. For a TV show, it had a pretty sophisticated method of communicating positions on big moral questions

3. It was creepy as hell

Without further delay here they are (links go to youtube)
