I was lucky to be offered the opportunity to do something with the Soul of Rock 'n' Roll I have not done before. It's a special event to give something back to the readers... a contest giveaway.
Partnering with Big Honcho Media, the Soul of Rock 'n' Roll is going to be giving away a number of copies of the new Zappa Plays Zappa DVD set. I'm pretty interested in this DVD release myself as I heard that the ZPZ tour was just incredible, critically acclaimed and a lots of fun, so I thought that being able to give away a few copies to some lucky Zappa fans would be pretty cool.
Don't hesitate to enter, I got to check out this DVD myself and thought it was pretty incredible... you can read my entire review here: Zappa Plays Zappa: A DVD Review
Check out this preview video clip:
You can also check out some trailers and previews from the DVD, as well as plenty of other cool media about the ZPZ tour on their website here: http://www.zappaplayszappa.com/
The rules of the contest are pretty simple... just shoot an email with the subject "ZPZ DVD Giveaway" to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name, address and an email address by which you can be reached promptly. The contest will remain open for one month. On exactly May 21, 2008 the winners will be chosen at random, I will email them to confirm their address and then each will be shipped... free of charge... a copy of the Zappa Plays Zappa DVD.
It is very IMPORTANT that you provide an email that you check regularly, even if it's the same as the one you're sending it from, because if you win and I email you for confirmation, but don't hear anything back within a week or so, then your prize will be going to someone else.
If you want to plead your case about why you deserve a copy of this DVD (you know, tell me why you're the biggest Zappa fan etc... something creative) go right ahead. I won't make any guarantees that it will actually help your chances, but you never know.
Oh, it's also very IMPORTANT that you DO NOT spam the contest email address or I ill IMMEDIATELY remove you from the runnings... so NO MULTIPLE ENTRIES.
Don't worry, this is giveaway is just a great promotional idea, your privacy will be respected... I won't even add you to my email mailing list.
If there's a lot of interest in this kind of giveaway, you might be seeing more of these here at the Soul of Rock 'n' Roll.
