THE AWESOME CAN'T MISS LIFE-CHANGING OH MAN SERIOUSLY GIVEAWAY.
Included are brand-new copies of The Artist and Wanted: Dead or Alive Season One. The former was purchased at Goodwill (still in its plastic wrapping) and the latter at Half-Price Books (there's a story to this giveaway).
Also, included are used (in great condition) copies of Modesty Blaise and a starter collection of Maverick with some of its best episodes. Both of these were purchased at Scarecrow Video--the hugely famous Seattle movie rental place.
Finally, you will also receive a beautiful copy of Bradford Dillman's hilarious, wonderful memoirs: Are You Anybody? An Actor's Life. I've wanted to do a giveaway of this for a long time, but it is extremely hard to track down without paying an exorbitant fee on Amazon. (I, of course, have my own copy; which I believe is currently in Kate's possession. haha) However, I found a copy at Cinema Books: the wonderful little bookshop in Seattle which recently closed after many, many years being run by the same woman. She knew literally everything about movies and many filmmakers made her shop a necessary stop during their time in Seattle (Colin Firth was the most recent visitor! ha). It really saddens me that it is now closed, because I loved to stop in an look around and always left with some random movie book. It was barely organized chaos (literally stacks of books everywhere), yet she always knew where everything was. I literally said: "Weird request, I know, but do you possibly have a copy of Bradford Dillman's memoirs?" She responded: "Oh, I know just where that is!" And, then, walked a few steps (an extremely small shop) looked at an incomprehensibly tall stack of books and pulled this one out easily. She didn't think it was strange at all. With this, you will get a piece of Seattle film culture history, as well as a hilarious collection of stories from a gifted writer.
Yes, I know what you're thinking, IT'S TOO MUCH! Why are you giving away so much greatness?!
Because, I love you.
And, also, I meant to do this giveaway nearly a year ago. It was gonna be a winter blah giveaway. And then, it was gonna be a kick-off to summer giveaway. And then, it was gonna be a farewell to summer giveaway. And then, it was gonna be a fall is here giveaway. And then, it was gonna be a Christmas giveaway. AND, NOW, IT'S A YAY 2016! DON'T FAIL ME NOW GIVEAWAY!
I will actually be leaving for out of the country for a couple of months in a couple of weeks. So, there won't be tons of time for this to happen. AKA, I need you all to pay close attention and definitely share this with your friends! ;-D
How to win:
1 entry-- Leave me a comment, and let me know your favorite new-to-you movie that you watched in 2015 and a movie that you are looking forward to watching in 2016!
1 entry-- Tell someone else about this contest somehow and have them enter. If they mention you, then I'll give you both an extra entry! (Oooooh. Intrigue.)
Comment by Monday, January 25th at 12AM (PST) and the winner will be chosen by random shortly thereafter. U.S. Entries only, please (sorry, but I am starving student who doesn't understand international mailing).
Yaya! Let the excitement begin (realistically, I know that only three of you are going to enter, but good luck! Because this is all genuine greatness! ;-D)!
