6- Gimme Shelter (Criterion)

Below you will find the original posting in case you missed the details. Remember folks all you have to do is follow us on Twitter or become fans of our facebook page.
Sound On Sight is a non profit organization that gets by with a lot of help from our friends in the industry, our hard working writers and more importantly our dedicated Sound On Sight radio show listeners. So I have decided that after after two years and 250 shows, we should finally give back. So we are having a contest in which one lucky Sound On Sight reader or listener, can win 52 DVD’s. What’s the catch? There is no catch. The contest winner will be announced on either Twitter or on Facebook before our 250th show. So all you have to do, in order to be eligible to win is follow our tweets or become a fan of the S.O.S. Facebook page. That’s it. It’s has easy as that. Think about it. That’s one DVD a week for an entire year. Also we are not giving away bad movies. So far our list includes 10 Criterion DVD’s, three Blu-Rays and a ton of genre films.
And before you ask here is some things you should know.
1- You can live anywhere in the world provided you have a legit mailing address. Sorry but we can’t work miracles and deliver you the prize if you live somewhere like the Amazon jungle.
2- We will randomly choose the winner from one of our Twitter followers or Facebook fans. I already began jotting down everyone’s name and will continue to be on the look out each time someone new follows us.
3- The winner will have the DVD’s mailed to them with the sleeves however we cannot afford to ship out the jewel cases. The package would be way too big. However the jewel cases are easily affordable whereas shipping such a big package isn’t, so instead we will include a payment so the winner can go and buy the jewel cases themselves on our tab.
4- You can increase your chances to win in the following ways:
– Your name gets entered into the draw for simply following us on Twitter.
– Your name also gets entered again into the draw for following us on facebook
– If you re-tweet this post, we will add your name one more time. Please note that no matter how many times you re-tweet our post, we will only count it once otherwise it would just be annoying for both our followers as well as our team who will have a difficult time logging the info.
– Finally each time you re-tweet our podcast, we will add you name in for every show you re-tweet. Again no matter how many times you re-tweet one specific show, it will only count as one time. However if you re-tweet the next 15 shows we will add your name into the draw another 15 times.
5- We are currently on Episode #230 of Sound On Sight so we estimate that our 250th episode will be just around Christmas time. However that doesn’t necessarily mean we will wait that long. We may announce a winner long before December depending on how fast I can sort through the thousands of titles, and decide what we can give out.
6- All DVD’s are Region 1
So if you love us and your friends and family, spread the word and recommend they follow us so they’ll also have a chance to win. More info to come.
