I guess I just like liking things

UPDATE: There won’t be a post today (May 2) so that this giveaway will stay at the top. No Wonderfalls recap tonight, either, as Meags is on vacation. Tell your friends about the giveaway and come back and see us tomorrow!

To celebrate six months of being around, I thought I’d do a little celebratory giveaway. Now, I’m not made out of money, so I’m kind of limited on what I can give away here, so you’ll have to bear with me about the fact that you’re not getting a full Batman suit or a new TV or anything. Sorry!  Maybe if I put ads on the site or something… I’ll keep that in mind for the year anniversary.

So what am I giving away? Movies I have extras of! Wooooooo!  These are movies I’ve either upgraded to Blu-Ray or got doubles of when I got married three years ago. I list them for you here in the order in which I think you’d enjoy them:

  • 13 Going on 30 – Okay, fine, I’ll admit it: this is one I got a double of when I got married, meaning that, yes, I owned my own copy. I swear it’s because of the Thriller dance sequence!
  • The Wedding Singer – My favorite Adam Sandler movie. Weirdly, I have two DVDs and a Blu-Ray of this one.
  • The Frighteners – Still sealed! I recently bought the Blu-Ray because I figured why not upgrade, and it also purported to have movie cash for me to go see Oblivion, but I couldn’t end up using that because I don’t have a Fandango-enabled theater nearby. Jerks.
  • Serenity – I have two DVDs and a Blu-Ray of this as well. Movie studious love me.
  • UHF – Several years ago Target was selling this movie on DVD for $5 apiece. I bought several copies to give away, and I’m down to two copies left. Still waiting for this to hit Blu-Ray.
  • The Princess Bride – Still sealed! Had it on DVD, bought a special edition DVD, and then got the Blu-Ray. I may have a sickness.

In addition, the lucky winner will also get

  • One Q*bert drawing, done by me however I want, with your suggestion as a theme

So there you go.  Here are the details:

  • The winner can choose to pick anywhere from one to all six of the movies. I realize that you might already have some or all of these, and I don’t want you to have the same problem I do.
  • I’m sorry, international zwolanerdlings (Yeah, I’m field-testing that. Deal with it!), but this is only open to US and Canadian residents. You wouldn’t be able to watch the DVDs anyway :(
  • To enter, you must comment on this entry and include two pieces of information: 
    -Which movies you’d choose from that list, anywhere from one to all of them
    -Something you’d like to see covered here at zwolanerd in the future
  • The winner will be chosen by some yet-to-be-determined random method, which may or may not involve cats
  • All entries must be posted by noon (Eastern) on Friday, May 3, 2013.

This is my way of saying thanks for visiting!
