How to win?

Since we had so much fun with posting photos today I figured we could do that again, but this time, I want to see something Christmasy. Whether it be a christmas tree,  you in an ugly christmas sweater, or a friend riding a reindeer,  the person that shall win the t-shirt will have shared a photo in which the caption would easily read “Christmas on Full Blast” or “Giving it 110% this Xmas”. 

On your marks, get set, go. And don’t forget your hashtag:

#12daysoffreakmas

Snuggles,

Dinner and a Show! The 5th Day of Freakmas

On the 5th day of Freakmas I want to give to thee…

Dinner and a show for you and a friend

As you may know, I’m playing a show this Thursday December 19th at the Electric Owl. Today’s winner will win 2 tickets to that show along with a $30 certificate to eat at the  Pizzeria Farina (right across from the Electric Owl on Main Street).

How to Win

Right now there are a lot of poster plastered around Vancouver for my show on the 19th. Find one of these posters and post a picture of it to Instagram with the ever important hashtag.

#12daysoffreakmas

If of course you search and cannot locate a poster  you’ll notice that I’ve included one in this blog post. I wouldn’t consider it cheating to find a way of reposting to either the outside world or the world wide web.

Good luck!

Mystery Present: on the 4th day of Freakmas

I wish I could tell you what the prize for the fourth day of Freakmas is. But I don’t know yet. Let’s have some fun shall we?

On the 4th day of Freakmas I want to give to you

A Mystery Present!

Tomorrow after work I’m going to give myself a 1 hour time limit to find a good present under $20.

How to win

Similar to the previous days of Freakmas, to win you have to either tweet or post to facebook the hashtag #12daysoffreakmas. With the hashtag include your guess for what I will end up buying as a present. I’ll do my best not to look at all of your posts until after  I’ve finished my shopping mission. The person with the closest guess wins the present.

There are no limits on guesses so please guess away, just always remember your hashtag

#12daysoffreakmas

And to all a good night

12 Days Of Freakmas

12 Days of Freakmas

12 Days Of FreakmasFriends,

It’s that time of year again. Rudolph is polishing his nose for optimal brightness, Santa Claus is probably doing rigorous callisthenics so he can complete a seemingly impossible mission, and I am starting a new Christmas tradition: The 12 Days of Freakmas.

Starting today, every night at the stroke of midnight I will post on my website a new Christmas present that will be up for grabs. I will also explain the simple task that will have to be completed by anyone who wishes to win the Freakmas present. On the following evening I will announce the winner for the day and I will continue through the cycle until all 12 Days of Freakmas have been celebrated.

Being that this is the age of social media, all of the challenges will occur over Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. If you don’t already please follow me on those platforms and remember to always include the hashtag #12daysoffreakmas. That way I can always find everyone who took part in each challenge.

Until midnight PST tonight, Happy Holidays!

D-Freaky

What Child is This? Merry Christmas to All!

Several months ago I was contacted by a mother-daughter team who spoke of big plans to start a music website where they featured local and upcoming artists in a fresh and independent new way. They called their website “Fresh Independence“. Having heard this story from young bloggers and try hards several times, I didn’t think much of it. Most often I find it’s as if most of these bloggers/critics/writers are either trying to get closer to their heroes ala Vampire Weekend and Dallas Green, or they’re merely looking for free tickets to shows. The writing is most often passionless and not engaging. Needless to say my hopes were low.

These ladies, however, have been coming through with some awesome work, high quality footage and well edited personal looks at lesser known artists. Let’s just say I was very happy to have been invited to do a couple sessions with Fresh Independence. Here is the holiday song I did with them and my friends from Four on the Floor. I give to you “What Child is This?”.

Here is also the interview/live song video session I did with them a few months ago.
