All right you primitive screw heads listen up. As you can see from the picture above I'm hard at work preparing for The Raimifest that as you all hopefully know will be taking place at the end of this month.
Like I said one of the big goals with Raimifest is to get more variation in content than with the average blogothon. I've already enlisted the help of a web comic and a podcast of certain distinction to help make this happen. And today I'm happy to announce something else different, that will hopefully help generate more varied content. Something that everyone likes.
Yes the good guys over at Crazy Dog T-shirts have agreed to sponser a prize for the blogothon.
So here's how this works. The person who delivers the most unusual post to Raimifest gets to have one of the following shirts of their choosing.
It can be a webcomic, a video essay, a piece of fan art, a ballad, a life sized statue of Bruce Campbell carved from butter. But that doesn't necessarily mean that writers are out of the contest. Have a brilliant dissertation on the role of Raimi as "The Sniggering Gunman" in Miller's Crossing? Think For Love Of The Game or Crimewave is his underrated masterpiece? By all means tell us why and you too might have the chance to clad your self in the finest S-Mart garb.
So take a moment get your thinking good and outside the box, and most importantly have some fun with it.
My thanks to everyone who has put up a banner in support of Raimifest! And if you haven't and have a bit of sidebar space to spare I'd be very much obliged to you.
