Sunday Jan 3
HAPPY EWW YEAR! Yes, eww year. Because we’re still in the thick of it and we’re not likely to come out the other side until spring at the earliest. I’m really looking forward to next summer when we can at least hang out outside without freezing our balls off or building an ark. Eww.
It feels like a month since the contests ended, but it’s actually only been two weeks since CFOX gave away that skidoo. Congrats to Haley who was the 99th caller at around 7:30 that Monday morning. I got through three times during that half hour (geez, Jeremy really dragged it out!) but obviously I didn’t win. It’s all good because now there’s something happening that’s more my speed…
While we’re definitely off to a slow start as usual, CFOX is giving me something to focus on over the next month: movie-making! It’s the same as that contest 95.3 used to do, where you have to remake an entire movie in 60 seconds. I made a few of them but I only remember the Supersize Me one. Now I’ve got a great idea for this contest and I can’t wait to get started on it!
This contest is nation-wide, with 14 stations and likely thousands of entries, but the prize is $10,000 so why wouldn’t you even try?! When 95.3 did it, there were some really amazing film-makers and obviously professionals doing it. They also had an online voting portion, which caused a LOT of ruckus and accusations of people buying votes. I predict similar problems with this one, as CFOX is giving $1000 to the top-ten movie with the most votes. Ugh, that sucks. People get really nasty, and some people have a lot of connections so can easily get a bazillion votes. I’ll be steering clear of that drama. Instead I will focus on making my movie one that I’m proud of – I’ll show it to you when it’s done! Contest ends on the 29th and you can read all the official rules HERE. Just a quick reminder: entry is through YouTube or Vimeo so don’t use any soundtrack or other music because it could get pulled for violating their copyright rules.
CFOX is also starting something else tomorrow which I’m not really understanding – every hour from 6am to 6pm they will give a code word. Go enter that word HERE and you could win $993. Great! But it doesn’t say when it happens – is it just tomorrow or is it every weekday for a month? Do you win every hour or just once at the end of the day? Is there a draw?? I don’t get it. When I find out I’ll let you know.
Nothing is going on over at Bell contest-wise, but for the first time since the 60’s QMFM changed their handle – they’re now called Move. I love change and I think this is a good one.
Would you like JR Country to come take your tree away? Just sign up HERE and they might swing by on Jan 9th and take it to the chipper for you. Maybe they’ll even bring you a present!
Peak has a lovely Sleep Country prize. Log in and enter HERE before next Sunday.
I had a dream that ZFX came back. *sigh* I miss ZFX… I miss the Zillionaire… I miss patio parties and people and chatting and sharing snacks. When this pandemic ends I’m doing a reverse quarantine and not coming home for two weeks!!!
