Choose your own adventure

I never win things.

So it was a nice surprise to get an e-mail from Chris at Culture Bully informing me that I had won a CD from his Second Annual Choose Your Own Giveaway contest – a brilliant contest where the winner gets to choose the prize he or she wants out of the day’s selections.

And being the grateful winner I am, I made a promise to myself to plug the contest.

I chose Ani DiFranco’s new greatest hits CD for a few reasons – it’s a disc that we wouldn’t buy on our own anyway (Kerrie has every album, so it’s quite a bit of overlap aside from re-recordings of older songs) but still want to make the canon complete. The album, actually, is called Canon, which I think is a great name for a greatest hits CD. I’m surprised more people don’t use it.

Anyway, you should all be reading Culture Bully regardless of giveaways – he’s smart and funny and I’ve learned more about the current indie rock scene from him than any other blog I’ve read.

So go ahead – treat yourself to a free CD. I finally did. It runs through September.
