Contest: Win "6 Videos By PT Anderson" DVD (Updated)

In an attempt to help spread the word about our new site location and (nearly completed) archives revival, I will bribe you with winning a copy of the extremely rare "6 Music Videos With PTA" DVD.

How to enter the contest is simple and you can do it two different ways:

Number One: From Your Twitter Account
Post a message anyway you like but it has to include @cigsandredvines (so i know you did it and can easily track the entries) and our address: A 'Follow Friday' mention will count as well, if you prefer to spam a bit more subtly. 
Number Two: From Your Facebook Account
Post a message anyway you like but it has to include a tag to our group page (@Cigarettes And Red Vines for the same reasons as above) and our address:
Contest Entry Rules & Deadlines
Each time you do an update and tag us counts as one contest entry. Obviously you are not limited to only doing one or the other and you can enter as many times as you are willing to spam your friends and associates. 
The contest begins right now and will run until Midnight PST on Friday, July 30th, 2010. One winner will be chosen at random from all eligible entries. And part of the deal is I humbly request the winning party not be a knob and put copies up on Ebay.
Context: We were only ever given 5 copies back in the day when Paul printed them for us. I believe we gave away 3 of them to site readers and Greg and I kept one each.

My disc didn't come with cover art for some reason or another that Greg told me so unfortunately I will only be able to send you a copy of my copy in a basic case. The only thing you are missing out on is Paul burnt "Non Playable Side. Dummy" into the holographic information ring in the middle of the disc.

The videos are Michael Penn's "Try," Aimee Mann's "Save Me" and Fiona Apple's "Fast As You Can," "Limp," "Across The Universe" and, my favorite by far, "Paper Bag."

Fascinating Update, 5:20pm:

This has been literally going on since 7am this morning, both averaging about a post every 15 seconds. In the blue trunks, hailing from Facebook: Max. In the red trunks, all the way from Twitter: Nigelfordham. Max's friend Ben got really pissed off at him for posting over 200 times by 1pm and is now trying to keep pace in an attempt to win it out of spite, which is hilarious. Thank you for the great response so far and entertaining the hell out of me along the way.


  1. What's the deal with Max Watts never actually receiving his prize? I was told he that emailed you several times after you announced that he won, but you've yet to respond to a single one. It seems like the least you could do for "entertaining the hell out of [you]."
