Giving It All Away!

I ran's "true random number generator" this morning & the winner is commenter #8, Brittany! At first I thought that I should generate another number because how truly random could it be if it picked someone I actually know, but then I realized that with only 11 commenters (the majority of whom I know either in real life or on some corner of the internet), it would actually be a lot weirder for the winner to be someone I didn't know. Anyway, thanks to everyone who commented! I will for sure be checking out your music recs and there will be more give-aways in the future!

Hey pals, how are you doing? I'll be honest, I'm in an exceptionally good mood. Last night's show (Prisoners, Good Touch Bad Touch, Psychedelic Horseshit, and Strange Boys) was a lot of fun (even though Drew and I didn't get home until 3AM, which is WAY TOO LATE if you ask me.) It's sunny and unseasonably warm out and I'm off work for the next couple of days. On top of that, my Sub Pop copy of I Will Be, the new Dum Dum Girls LP came in the mail today, along with a free copy of the "Jail La La" 7". Since I already had a copy of the "Jail La La" single, I figured I might as well give this one away. "Jail La La" is Dum Dum Girls' first single on Sub Pop & the b-side is a cover of "Play With Fire" by the Rolling Stones.

So here's the deal: If you're interested in perhaps receiving this in the mail, comment on this entry by midnight (Eastern Standard Time) on Sunday, April 4th with a couple of your current favorite songs and/or bands. On Monday morning, I'll use a random number generator to pick the winner!

Because of the cost of shipping, this first giveaway will be open to US residents only. Future ones might open up to overseas shipping, we'll see how things go. In case you were wondering, the 7" comes with a download code for mp3s of both songs.

In case you can't remember how "Jail La La" goes, or if you've just never heard it before, have a video!

I can't quit listening to the new Yeasayer or the Lady Gaga/Beyonce "Telephone", along with some Camera Obscura for the spring weather and Misfits for the random mood I've been in lately. Gotta love being all over the map. =)
