IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: COMPETITION WINNER ANNOUNCED (29/03/07)
Our latest winner is… Graham Knight.
Congratulations to you, Graham. Please let us know where we should send your prize.
Apologies for being absent early this week. We had some niggly server problems. We hope you missed us as much as we missed you.
According to our current poll, 92% of you missed us and, best of all, nobody voted ‘Don’t know’, which is tremendously encouraging. We now look forward to seeing the inevitable ‘No’ votes coming in from predictable quarters, just to be spiteful.
It’s been a while since our last ‘words’ contest, so please reach for your nearest copy of ‘On An Island’ (we know you have more than one) and have a listen to the ninth track, ‘A Pocketful of Stones’.
We want to know three words that spring to mind when you listen to this fine song.
For example, you could have President-Bush-Stupid, Global-Warming-Reality or Inconvenient-Truth-Indeed.
Then again, you could have Soft-Soothing-Stirring, especially if you’re fond of alliteration and want to show off.
If you guess any of the words that sprang to my mind today (other than the ones above, which are just there to stoke the fire a bit), then your name will be entered into a raffle. One winner will be selected at random and a prize will be awarded.
If you guess two, or even all three, of my words, then you’ll be entered into said raffle multiple times and will have a better chance of seeing your name being drawn from an imaginary hat.
We’ll announce the winner on Thursday, when we’ll also be declaring the next song from David’s DVD. Have your Blotto cards at the ready.
Good luck, and good listening, to all.
There’s a chat tomorrow from 1PM (UK). Everyone’s welcome.
As the blog was down for the best part of two days, in between thumb-twiddling, you will see that several chat sessions have been added to the calendar for April and May, so do have a look at those.
