April 6th, over at POP, we'll be having a low key trading party (for all those multiples of blind boxed toys you have - you can bring ANY toy to trade) and a Guitar Hero Competition to benefit Team Atomic who are once again riding for the Feast! There'll be refreshments and a bake sale to raise funds as well!
Starts at 7pm!
The prize for the winner on the Hard level will be a $100 gift certificate to Atomic Books/POP and a goodie bag of toys, books & other ephemera.
The prize for the winner on the Easy level $22.93.
It's just a $1 per try.
I, of course, will not be entered into the competition. I'll just be there to taunt you with my skillz. Unless you're 12 years old, then you'll probably kick my ass.

It's almost Spring! Time for those Springy things and rituals.
I'm so excited about the early Daylight Saving Time, which happens this Sunday. When Benn first told me about it I thought he was bullshitting me. As is his wont. Which is why I didn't fall for his "Oh, and a day is going to have 25 hours starting April 1st."

The 5 winners will have their songs set to music and recorded. Judges are Jad Fair, Seth Falkner, Franklin Bruno and David (Largehearted Boy) Gutowski.
Need inspiration? These may help.
But before you write your song, be sure to check out (and add a few) Chunklet's Rock Rules project, just so you can avoid any embarrassing mistakes.
