Spontaneous Sunday Forum Giveaway!

Want some stuff? Do some stuff!

Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage LE
Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage LE
'Tis the Sunday before Christmas and all through the house I'm feeling pretty generous. I have this nice, still-shrinkwrapped copy of Geneon's* Limited Edition Black Lagoon The Second Barrage Volume 001 DVD, which comes with the SteelBook Collector's Case and an extra feature DVD. (Not to mention four episodes, which includes the entire Twins arc, which is probably my favorite in the whole series.)


So, what can you do to get your paws on this beauty? You'll have to spend some time on our forums! Leave a comment on this post's thread with your very own re-written, otaku-themed holiday carol. To get you started, here's mine, titled “Jingle Con”:



Dashing through the con
In a Mog-drawn open sleigh
O'er the fanboys we go
Memeing all the way (YOU.LOST.THE.GAME!)

Bells on Chii's dress ring,
Making stalkers fight,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A con'ing song tonight!

Oh, jingle con, jingle con,
Kira just got laid,
L's a punk and Misa's drunk And Mello does ballet-- hey!

Jingle con, jingle con,
Spent my hotel fee
On a Louise hug pillow
Now where will I sleep?


Anyone who submits a holiday carol gets an entry into the contest. You can post as many as you'd like for more entries, but they have to be legitimately different from your others (and those of other users)-- and by entering, you agree to leave that sort of thing up to my judgment! Post it by midnight Pacific Standard Time (that's -8), and one of the entries will be randomlyu selected.


There's one other way to enter the contest: if you get someone else to sign up for the site today, both of you get an entry. In order to make that work, BOTH of you have to PM me (by midnight!) and tell me the other's username. And yes, I WILL be checking IP addresses and dates joined, so don't even try to cheat. Because...


Any attempt to cheat automatically disqualifies all of the rest of your entries and entries into future contests. So don't do it, okay?


OK, boring rules stuff is out of the way. Get your friends to sign up and/or start writing those carols! The winner will be chosen on Wednesday.


* FUNimation has the license now, and I bought it from them, but this is clearly an item that was designed prior to Geneon's demise, since it only has the Geneon logo on it-- no FUNi.

Dragonball Evolutions roasting on an open fire,
Ugly Picollo nipping at your nose,
Japanese words being sung by an otaku choir,
And folks dressed up like ninjas.

Everybody knows Ichigo and some Naruto,
Help to make the season blight,
Tiny tots with their ninja headbands all aglow,
Will find it hard to sleep tonight (I kill them).

They know that Itoshiki is on his way,
He's loaded with nooses and razors on his sleigh.
And every mother's cosplayer is going to cry,
When they learn their ninja skills can't make them fly.

And so I'm offering this simple phrase,
To kids in Squad 1 to 12,
Although it's been said, many times, many ways,
絶望した ZETSUBOSHITA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I see Haruhi getting into spirit!
Tomoya too
I've seen them bloom
For me and otakus

And I think to myself....
What a wonderful otaku christmas

I see skies of Chiyo
And tears of Haku
The brightess day
When Akira blows up

And I think to myself....
What a wonderful otaku christmas

The colours of Gankutsuou
So pretty in art
Are also on the faces of Kagami and Konata enjoying eggnog!

I seen Tomoya and Sonohara
Saying how do you do?
They are really saying, I love you..

Fuko wants starfishs, Sasuke doesn't want to be emo
I've watched them open a present...
...but never have known

And I think to myself...
What a wonderful..."yaoi",.... i mean otaku christmas

Yes!
And I think to myself...
Asuma is still having a bad christmas...
:'( /cry
....i mean otaku christmas.....

Hmm, I forgot to worry about US-only-- usually we at Whiskey Media just say that people outside of the US have to do their own shipping. But since I didn't call it in advance I guess you non-US-ers got lucky this time around. ;) If one of you wins, anyway!

I thought of another one when I went to the mall with my friend. The mall plays a lot of Christmas songs...

Sung to "My Favorite Things"
Titled: My Favorite( Dorky) Things

Gundams a plenty,
And other mechs galore,
Downloading new shows,
And ignoring my chores,
Cool LE box sets
That have neat extras,
These are a few of my favorite things . . .

Reading Del Rey books,
An' watching Funi shows,
Going on forums,
Listenin’ to Garnet Crow’s,
Debatin’ if Eva is a good show,
These are a few of my favorite things . . .

Lolis in dresses,
Wearing rocking horse boots,
That will wear diff’rent styles like gothic and fruits,
They will smile meekly,
And pose with curtseys,
These are a few of my favorite things . . .

When Pakkun bites,
When Soi Fon stings,
When I'm feelin' sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don't feel so bad . . .

Gundams....hmmm galore...
new shows.......(ignoring) my chores....
La dee da, la dee da,
La dee da, da,
These are a few of my favorite things . . .

When Pakkun bites,
When Soi Fon stings,
When I'm feelin' sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don't feel so bad . . .

And then I don't feel so bad . . .
