Name That Tune, Win a Crit & Something Free
It's Music Monday here and I thought I'd do something different. First up: Something Free. Plenty of you have probably heard of it, but I just wanted to share my favorite ringtone site, Mobile17. They do not spam - ever. Other than the confirmation link email, I've never gotten anything from them - in 2 years. If you are willing to wait about 30 minutes per song, you can download as many free ringtones as you want. You take the song straight from your computer and they upload it and send it to your phone. I can't see needing a ringtone to be so important that someone couldn't wait. Especially someone cheap like me. I could have 50 million in the bank and I would still track down the best deals and cut coupons. Apparently one of my parents instilled in me the importance of being frugal. Could not possibly have been Shopaholic Mom. Maybe dad.
"Shut the door. I don't want to pay to air condition the entire block."
"Figure out what you want before you open the fridge."
So, onto Name that Tune/Win a Crit. I got a new phone on Friday(hence my renewed love with Mobile 17) and downloaded 10 ringtones. The first of my followers (current or brand new) to guess the band or song of the current ringtone I have set on this Friday's (12/17/10) post will win a 5 page (1250 word) crit. Once the band or song is guessed, I will do the first 250 words of your MS for the remaining unguessed entity. If by some amazing guess, the first person gets the band and song, I will do an entire chapter.
Blog about this = 2 extra pages
Sidebar link = 2 extra pages
Be sure to comment in this thread if do either of those things.
I blog often about music, so I'm sure plenty of you will have quick guesses. Or you can skim old posts and find tons of bands I listen to. I even did a blogfest listing of my all time favorite albums a while ago. If it proves too hard come Friday, I'll edit in a list of bands on Friday's post.
Sorry CP's you're out on this one. You get me for free. Anytime. Anyplace. (er, JP - I was trying to avoid being the first again, but I'll toss it into the ring tomorrow for you. It'll be easy, and quick, and not very red at all. Coz it's so full of awesome!)
I hope everyone will play. It should be fun. I'm a fast critter, and a thorough one. Hopefully not too scary! I learned from the Compuserve site (sidebar linkage) that critting others is the best way to hone ones craft. I've been doing it on the forum for over 2 years, and I really enjoy it.
