Topic: 4 New Comps, 4 New Contests, 4 Winners Return to archive

Sir Stonesalot So, ol' SS got inspired the last couple of days. I started out with the intention of whipping out 2 new compilations...and ended up with 4 instead!

Now, as I am currently tree seeding my ass off, I don't have the burner time to be making 25 or 30 copies of these. Not to mention, with the holidays rapidly approaching I don't have the extra dinero to mail out 25 or 30 copies like I did the last time.

So, here is how this will work. There is going to be 4 contests with 4 different winners. Each winner will be responsible for weeding their prize out. Remember what a weed is? Each winner will share his prize with at least 3 people here. Each of those people will then share with 3 more people...and so on and so forth. If you are not willing to participate in a weed, then don't enter the contest.

We will get to the contests in a bit, for now....let's talk about what you are playing for....

#1. Sir Stonesalot's Rave Up!!!

This is a strange, schizo, wacky, funny compilation. It's a hootenanny! It runs the gammut from macho stoner cock rock, to insane garage psyche, to jangly rock music, to slick poprock, there's even a quirky little ballad! It's a rave up!

1. American Music--The Blasters(old timey rocknroll)
2. Drunkhouse--Chesterfield Kings(no this isn't the Stones)

KeepRigid 1. I'm betting it's a trick question and you don't have any cds or cdrs, but in fact steal from others as the need arises.

2. Excuse Me Frankie, It's My Balls

3. My fictional group would be very lazy and would blow it. Besides, they don't give airplay to bands named Excuse Me Frankie, It's My Balls. Fuckers.

4. Album: Who's Art's In Heaven? (Because It Sure As Hell Ain't Ours)
Single: No hits
Tracklisting: Too numerous to list, as many of the titles listed do not appear on the album
