Because little in life is more entertaining to me than reading someone describe how a solid-state amplifier "sounds' when operating below clipping, I figured we could help them out by widening their audio-thesaurus and supplying some new, superb verbiage via a little "Happy Memorial Day Contest".
Adjectives, adverbs, nouns, verbs, are all fine. Whatever's clever.
"Oldies and "classics" are perfectly fine too.
The rules are simple:
1. ONE WORD/ENTRY per forum member. Please do not submit another or you will be automatically eliminated from the contest and your post will be asked to be deleted from the thread. Let's be sensible please and keep it clean for the delicate eyes.
2. No duplicates (obviously). If someone happens to post "your word" seconds before you do, sorry, tough nuts: try again. The post to appear FIRST on the thread will be considered "official" Please comb the thread for words already submitted. I will do my best to keep an updated list within the thread, but do not consider it an official tracker.
2. The contest ends MEMORIAL DAY AT MIDNIGHT CST. NO EXCEPTIONS!
Yeah, it's a quickie so don't delay.
3. The winner will be determined by ME and only ME.
I harbor zero ill will against anyone on this forum despite any back and forth that has gone on through these sometimes zany (and offensive
) dialogues. Life goes on. Good luck to all.
And now, The PRIZE: ANY Blu-Ray that can be reasonably had for $20 or less. Again, let's be sensible here please. Amazon is usually a pretty decent barometer for BD price-points. This figure should afford for most new/newer releases. If it doesn't encompass your personal selection, tough nuggies, it's a PRIZE! :P Pick another.
Whatever your selection, I will purchase and ship it by Wednesday so you should have it for the weekend...unless perhaps you're an Eskimo or Islander.
I will announce the winner at 10AM CST on Tuesday, May 29th. The winner will be contacted via PM. Please respond ASAP with your choice.
Why am I doing this? Just thinking it can give us all a good laugh, but just as much, a small kickback to a forum/community that I have learned an ENORMOUS amount from and with such have consequently saved a ton of time and money.
I'm pretty certain that this doesn't violate any forum rules, but mods please contact me if it does. I've been here for years and the winner can be assured I'll "pay up", lol.
Good luck to everyone and have a wonderful and safe Memorial Weekend!
