Contest within a Contest

You should remember the band Cure For Caska, we bring them up occasionally. Well they're part of a competition, so to speak, to win a chance to perform at the Canada Music Week, $10,000 in Sennheiser gear and possibly do a showcase for a record label. The judges of the competition selected them to be 1 of only 20 bands eligible to compete.

Cool thing about this competition, not only does it rely on your votes to decide the winner, but you could be a winner as well. You’ll have the chance to win a trip for 4 to the festival (tickets, flights and hotel), spending money and Sennheiser prize packs for all; simply by voting.

Voting ends January 25th, 2011. So make sure you get in on it. It's simple and only takes maybe 5 minutes of your time. But you'd be giving yourself and the awesome people in Cure For Caska a chance at something big.

Em, Tegan, and Kim
Em: 23, writer, book lover, music lover, movie lover, really big dork, reviewer of all things interesting.

About Me:
I review books, movies, and music. Occasionally, other things that catch my attention.
Movies: I'm into everything. From Horror to Drama, Sci Fi to Comedy, Animated to Indie.
Books: Mostly I read Urban Fantasy, whether it's adult or YA. I'm also into Mystery, Thriller, and Romance (the paranormal variety or otherwise).
Music: The only music I don't like is Bluegrass, Rap, and Metal. Everything else I'm very open to.

Tegan: 19, Bookaholic, Aunt I love kids

About Me:
I review mostly books. Movies if I love them, or really hate it, I’ll review it too.
Movies: I love Animated, Chick Flick, and Action Adventure
Books: I read mostly YA, Fantasy favorites are: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins And Blue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz
Music: Three Days Grace (seen them twice they are amazing live), Paramore, Lady Gaga (cause she's so fun to dance too).

Kim: 18, a tendency toward peculiarity and acting older than she really is. Can't live without music, books, and movies.

About Me:
I review books, movies, and music. I also tend to have very eclectic tastes when it comes to all of those categories.
Movies: I'm more into drama, horror, indie, and comedies. I dislike romantic comedies or romances, but could enjoy them if I am in the right mood.
Books: I tend to focus on fiction of various kinds. Fantasy, YA, Sci Fi, Romance, Paranormal romance. I have no preference, I just like good writing and creativity.
Music: Listen to everything under the sun except rap and country. At times, I am endearingly called an indie snob, and I like to open other people's ears to new sounds and bands that deserve to be heard.

If we don't like something we will always point out as many good points as possible and follow it up with the bad. If we absolutely hated it, chances are we just won't post about it at all. No one wants to read a rant about how much something disappointed. That's what friends are for. :)
