The "Super Awesome Contest" Contest, Win an Army Of Darkness dvd, a Useless State Records prize pack and Cereal!

pc-pdx Dec 23 2009 12:10A 8

We're finishing up the year with a count the jellybeans stylee` contest. The Winner gets STUFF!

So here's the game:


We've been doing this Show-Guide for almost three years now. Each passing year it keeps getting bigger and better (wait for the 2010 version!). Your job is to guess three things:
  1. How many shows were posted for 2009?
  2. How Many flyers were posted for those 2009 shows?
  3. How many different visitors checked out the Show-Guide in 2009?


(this will blow up the shoutbox, but whatever..)Post in the comments below your guess to these three questions. The answers will be tallied up and given a percentage against the final number.


Contest ends at 11:59p on Sunday, January the 3rd 2010!
The winner will be announced soon after. You can pick up the prize at Backspace downtown or we can mail it to you - but that will cost you the box of cereal.
Tell your friends and keep the guesses coming. Don't forget to give your contact info (email highly prefered!) or we can contact you!

  1. fuckin-a right!

    1. 923
    2. 724
    3. 7238

    also, why are there no christmas peeps as part of the prize. MARSHMALLOW TREEEEEESSSSS

  2. If by "show" you mean movie, yeah, I saw the 1984 holiday classic Silent Night, Deadly Night at the Hollywood Theater last evening! It kicked butt! Some scenes are still a little over the top, but some are unintentionally freaking hilarious--i.e. they don't age well. As for bands, I could give two shits about hipster bands like Silversun Pickups--or for that matter, the tuneage you're giving away for this contest. Classic hardcore/metal is where I'm at, when not listening to Nat or Eartha.

  3. I KNOWW IMA WIN.

    1. 754
    2. 469
    3. 10,000

    i'll take my prizes now.

    ps rob ankrom yer a newb
    pps the coop lives!

    @Rob: word! I don't know what the Silversun Pickups comment is in regard to, but i'll put them in the fuckoff category too. I know that not everybody would be into the great music prizes that were gifted from USR - that's why we threw in the ARMY OF DARKNESS DVD to the pile - and what about the cereal? THE CEREAL!!

    Maybe this contest is borked.
    If 5 more people don't comment this before 5p today, we'll scrap it and start something new. Think of some ideas if it comes to that... which it's looking to be true.

    oaky-okay, sorry.
    So this contest sucks and it's over/never really started.
    Somebody come up with something else, give us ideas - anything : GO!
