2. The more comments you make, the more chances you have to win.
3. While you are at it, tell me about your favorite music in them there comments this month. Just for fun. It has no bearing on the winners. Other than I might make fun of you. But probably not. Let’s remember I have HANSON in my iTunes.

5. Winners from last month, please take a month off.
6. Tomorrow morning, James from work, who will not read the comments – will pick THREE SEPARATE random numbers, and if one of those numbers are your place in line in the comments, you will win a mix CD from me! Three CDs, three winners!

October Greeblepix Winner!

Drum roll please! With nearly twice the amount of votes from last month, it was still a very close race. Our winner captured 21% of the vote, but the other finalists were not far behind! So thank you all for voting and the winner of the $250 camera rental is…

MICHELLE @ MAMASPOD

This winner is bittersweet for me, because Me Ra Koh is running a contest right about for “inspirational objects,” everyday objects that mean something to you, and literally last weekend I started taking photos of my glasses. Because without them, I would never see all the gorgeous things in my life, like all these photos, my child, yadda yadda yadda. But Michelle had to like totally go an RUIN it for me by submitting a photo way more gorgous than I could ever take, so now I need a new inspriational everyday object! Humpf! Any ideas?

Seriously, BIG CONGRATS to Michelle, it’s a fabulous shot!!! Please email me at aimee [at] greeblemonkey [dot] com to claim your prize.

But wait! There’s more!

Jared at ProPhotoRental was so thrilled with the response to the contest this month that he decided to offer ALL Greeblemonkey readers a prize: A discount with ProPhotoRental! (And just to make sure we are straight, these guys SHIP the camera equipment to you! So it’s not just for Colorado folks!)

If you would like to check them out, used the code “S-OctoberMonkey” on any ProPhotoRental order of $50 or more and receive 15% off! The reservation can be for any time in the next 12 months, but the voucher expires on November 30th, 2008. Yay!

Thanks again, and see you next month! Remember, Greeblemix is 1st Monday of the month and Greeblepix is the 3rd Monday of the month! Mark your calendars for November 17th!

09.08 Greeblemix Winners

OK, there were really random numbers this time! Bryan picked: 8, 14, 47. Which equals:

8. Lisa Clusterfook (Pssst! It’s Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, yo’s!)
14. Reese / Fashionista Plus / Reese Raves & Rants
47. Jill Glossy Veneer

Thanks so much to everyone who participated, and gave such humorous comments. I have to admit my faves were the Little Known Facts, but I *promise * I did NOT sway Bryan to pick Reese’s number. PROMISE.

Winners, please email your snail mail addresses to aimee at greeblemonkey dot com!

Now, as you may know, every month, the mix ends up being a total potpourri. New music (some found from old friends, some found from new friends, most of it found from the associated music tools in iTunes, heh!). Old music (some rediscovered through Rockband and our combined awesomeness on guitar + vocals, or some that just makes me feel good, or some old friends with new albums, yay!). Mainly whatever hits me at the end of the month and sounds good together. To me, at least.

I hope you guys enjoy it too.
