Weirdest iTunes review contest!

September 17, 2013

Fellow persons:

The album CIRCLES SUPER BON BON SLEEPLESS etc. is out today!!

Thanks to everybody who helped fund it. You know that old canard, “I couldn’t have done it without you?” It’s so true here.

The album is on iTunes here: http://georiot.co/21yW

I’m having a contest to commemorate the release. Weirdest iTunes review will receive two tickets to the show of their choice, plus the “soundcheck party” (which is actually an acoustic performance at the venue in the late afternoon).

Here’s an example:

“LED ZEPPELIN IV is like a bowl of scalding cheese. It sucks your face like a wombat. It is full of vim, vigor, and the love of humanity. I taste it and yelp with ecstasy, yet despair–despair that is more delicious than Nutella.”

Uh, perhaps it goes without saying that it has to be a good review–however “good” translates to a review that references scalding cheese.

It would also be awesome–though not a part of the contest–if you clicked “yes” on “Was this review helpful?” on the reviews you find most surreal. Because I’d like the general public to believe that references to scalding cheese are helpful.

*references to scalding cheese are not mandatory.

Thank you, most sincerely.
Mike Doughty
