Sharpen your pencils: It’s time for a contest!

So, brain-dead me forgot that Brandi Carlile‘s promo folks were going to send me a copy of her stunning debut solo CD. I just got so dang riled up at the show that I went ahead and plunked down my scrilla and bought me a copy (which I have been enjoying ever since and wowing all of my friends, who say, “Who IS that?!“).

But it is to your distinct benefit, because now I have an extra copy, and you have a chance to win this excellent CD.

Your mission is simple: Write me a limerick in the comments (or email me) about the state of music today (however you want to interpret that) by this Friday. Whichever one I like best will get the CD in their mailbox, once I can dig out of the snowdrifts currently surrounding my house. Make me laugh, think, cry, shudder. Dig?

PS – I know this is Brandi Carlile Central around here lately on the Fuel blog. You love it.

Now get to writing!

  • here’s another one i just thought of (in addition to the one I emailed you):

    In the musical climate we’re in
    So much of the story is spin
    The issue, ergo
    is my need to know
    If Britney is knocked up again

  • ‘k. Here’s mine….

    The DJs of times now long past
    Played real music — the kind that will last
    But the DJs today
    Only play what will pay
    And wouldn’t know “music” if it bit their fat ass.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
