It's better belated than never ... and last
Saturday marked Cinematical's first birthday. And to celebrate the times (come on!), we're having a little contest
where you get the birthday present. See, we've got a $200 Amazon.com gift certificate to give away ... and we're going
to give it to someone who shows us what a huge part of their life film is with a picture of their movie-themed life and
stuff. Maybe you have that illegal, no-licencing-fee-has-ever-been-paid-to-the-man Christopher Walken
action figure you keep
hidden away out of sight; possibly you have a sweet framed Breakfast at Tiffany's
one-sheet poster you've kept since you were a little girl. Or maybe you just have so many damn movies in your apartment
it looks like one wall is insulated entirely by DVD cases from Criterion. Or you dressed up as Lloyd Dobler for
Halloween, and have a photo complete with boombox hoisted overhead. Whatever it may be, mail it to us, and a panel of
judges including myself, Associate Editor Kim Voynar and East Coast Editor Martha Fischer will name a winner on March
25th. Just a few rules:
- Keep it Real. No photoshop, no fakery.
- Contest is open to anyone, anywhere. Unless you work for Cinematical or Weblogs, Inc.
- Enter by dropping your pictures of your memorabilia in comments, or email your pictures in to james.rocchi
(at) cinematical (dot) com, subject "Birthday" (no quotes).
- Be creative, and
- You've got until 11:59PM EST Thursday March 23 to enter your
Any questions, let us know. And yeah, I so
have one of those Walken doll ... I
mean, action figures
