It’s an Ordinary but Strange care package

January 10. 2011

Are you suffering withdrawal from opening gift boxes? Do you like raffles? Are you into awesome?  If so, read on…

You can call this shameless. You may label it silly. You might even say it’s a pathetic attempt for self promotion. But let’s be honest. You’ve shot in and out of here before like a puck in the glove of Nikolai Khabibulin.  I’ve seen the stats. You come here once in a while. Let’s stop fooling around. Quit playing games with my heart. Let’s make it official.

I know what you’re saying. You don’t like commitment. Or maybe I’m moving too fast. I understand. But hear me out. I’ve made it a goal for 2011 to double my subscribers. Why? Because I have some cool things lined up for this year. Without sensationalizing an otherwise lame sales pitch-I don’t want you to miss it.

“Okay, so what am I getting into?” Well, if you click here you’ll receive email updates of front page posts fresh off the press. That’s it. Pretty simple. You can even opt out any time. It’s not a covenant. So come on, be like Greg Focker and join this “inner circle of trust”.

To sweeten my plea I’m going to be putting in a hat everyone that subscribes and ONE LUCKY WINNER will get in the mail an “Ordinary but Strange” Care Package. It’s going to be full of substantially whimsical cool things!  All the current subscribers are automatically entered in the contest so don’t worry faithful few.

Alright, well that’s enough marketing for one day.

Contest ends on January 31 so you have plenty of time to think about it. As you do that:

*Check out my new playlist Almost Brink 2010.

*Go back in time. (For those of you born before 1989)

*Peruse some of the latest films I’ve watched.

*Avoid this restaurant unless you love pizza.

*Consider some books to pick up.

*Break a world record.

*Listen to a lullaby before you lay your head to sleep.

  1. Mel, I didn’t see your email address on the list. What is your email? I still entered your name in the raffle though so don’t worry.
