Strike a Blow Against the Paranormal Rights Campaign

ghost_hunters_banner

Every day, ghosts, phantoms, and phantasms are hunted down by a force of elite, highly skilled operatives equipped with the latest technology. And for good cause. You see, ghosts are people like you or me, well they used to be, but they're not anymore and yet they insist on squatting in abandoned castles and invading the privacy of good, homeostatic citizens. If these were people committing these crimes, would we not call the police or some type of authority? Of course we would. Ghosts don't deserve special treatment. So what you say you, reader? Will you side with justice and support the hunt for these apparitional aspersers? If so, read on, because to support the glorious cause of poltergeist persecution, we're giving away two copies of Ghost Hunters: Season Six: Part 2 on DVD.

We Can Rebuild You, Make You Lighter...Possibly

fitnessdvdbanner

The winter months approacheth, and for those of us living in places that actually have seasons, that means we'll soon be relegated to long hours indoors lest we be forced to brave the bitter cold and possibly die. It's unlikely, sure, but it could happen. To prevent that unlikely outcome, we could take advantage of home fitness solutions like fruit smoothies or moving into a seven-story walk-up. Or we could buy some sort of video-based disc that contains a workout or two and go from there. For the sake of a giveaway, let's assume we did the latter and now let's assume we have two DVDs to give to you, the reader. To help promote good fitness in you (whom we assume lives in a temperate zone), we're giving away Extreme Makover: Weight Loss Edition - The Workout and Denise Austin: Sculpt & Burn Body Blitz, two DVDs that should hopefully have some effect on how you'll look five months from now. We think you look fine, really, but if you're interested...keep reading to find out how you can win these DVDs.

He's Not the Messiah. He's a Very Naughty Boy.

son_of_morning_banner

Look, there's a very basic rule to live by, and I find it makes life much simpler: don't pretend to be or let people call you the Messiah. It doesn't end well for you, for them, for anyone. Everyone loses. And even if you happen to be the Messiah, in so being this would mark your second trip here which would make it your second coming and that signals all sorts of horrible things. So stop it. This is good advice, I hope you're paying attention, because the main character in Son of Morning didn't. He let himself get swept up in a media sensation that declared him the messiah in a very Life of Brian kind of way. Son of Morning descended onto DVD from on high (or wherever) on September 13th, and we've got a copy to give away.

His story has been brought to film as Buck, a look at his practice and showing how he deals with a horse seemingly beyond reprieve. Buck rides to DVD on October 4th and to celebrate its release into the wild we're giving away a copy to one lucky reader.

"American Loser": Oxymoronic or Redundant?

american_loser_banner

Bet you've never seen Sean William Scott play a lovable loser who has to get his act together. Just kidding. If you've ever seen a Sean William Scott movie, you've pretty much seen him in that role. And yet, he still manages to be funny. Usually. Well, luckily he's heading for new territory with his groundbreaking new role...oh wait...Steve Stifler? Again? Really? American Reunion? Sheesh. Okay, well, fine. At least you can enjoy one of his many lovable loser roles with American Loser where he stars opposite Gretchen Mol as a guy who needs to get motivated. While we're rambling incoherently, could the DVD cover artist have found a less attractive picture of Gretchen Mol?

Anyways, American Loser arrived on DVD on September 27th, and to celebrate the release we're giving away a copy. To find out how you can win, keep reading.

In My Vaudevillian Homicide Days I Use to Dress Up in Ghostface

scream_4_banner

Did it never occur to anyone to outlaw the Ghostface mask? For whatever reason it seems to inevitably lead to a long string of meta hyper-self-aware homicides and you can't help but wonder why the company that makes the mask hasn't been sued within the world of Scream a dozen times over. How many murders committed by a guy in a Ghostface mask does it take for the courts to accept that there is some cultural link? Lives and millions of dollars could be saved by just ceasing production on that one mask. Then again, maybe it's better they haven't, because while not the best entry in the franchise, Scream 4 wasn't half bad. It was easily better than Scream 3, and in the end, isn't that the main requirement fans have for the franchise now? if Wes Craven's franchise can keep that pace up, then fans will probably go back as many times as he wants.

On October 4th, Scream 4 slashes its way to DVD and Blu-ray (exactly what is standing between it and release that requires slashing, I'm not sure) and in honor of every 90s movie star that fell at Ghostface's hand, we're giving away a copy on DVD.

Who You Gonna Call? You Have Options

sanctuary_s3_banner

In the pantheon of groups that hunt down supernatural beasties, it's hard to specify exactly who you should call. I mean sure, if there are ghosts the Ghostbusters seem like the obvious choice, but in their later years, Mystery Inc. dealt with their fair share of genuine phantoms. Aliens? Mulder and Scully seem the logical choice, but the number of teams that handle close encounters goes on forever. Demons from other dimensions? Dear lord, where do you start? Buffy? Torchwood? Sanctuary? It used to be so simple, now, the marketplace is incredibly competitive and you have to weigh your options.

Join in Luke Bryan's Celebration of Tanning Negligence and Truck-Based Feasts by Winning His Album

luke_bryan_banner

Ever just had nowhere to be for four hours as you waited for the bouncers at the local stadium to let you into your seats? What's a guy painted half blue and half green to do? If you put a shirt on, you'll smear your exquisitely painted team pride, but if you don't no restaurant will let you in. So what do you do? Smear the paint or do you take the grill from the back of your truck and you cook a few hotdogs in the parking lot? Or how about another scenario: you're working construction on what will eventually be the eyesore of the skyline [read: any skyscraper by Donald Trump] and the sun slowly cooks you as you lay the building's foundation. Do you keep applying sunscreen? Or do you embrace the unique tan you're sure to receive?

A "Brand New Day" Where Women Glow and Men Plunder

brand_new_day_banner

Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder? In "Brand New Day", an aboriginal youth goes on the run from a fate in the seminary, and while I'm not an expert on all things Australian, it's entirely possible the road trip that ensues occurred on a hippie trail with a head full of zombie. He does meet a strange lady, granted it's Missy Higgins, and she did make him kind of nervous and at one point she does cook him breakfast. It's like the film was intentionally reenacting Men at Work's "Land Down Under". It's weird. If you're wondering, yeah, the rest of the verses also apply to film, except the third one, because the story never extends to Bombay. 2 out of 3 ain't bad, and for an independently produced musical, it's rather enjoyable.

Admit it, you're curious to see "Land Down Under" play out on the screen with Missy Higgins and Geoffrey Rush. Well okay, we've got a copy on DVD and we'll give it to you if you do two things.

Gary Moore Lives...at Montreux...in 2010

gary_moore_banner

Wandering from one musical outfit to another throughout his career, Gary Moore has had many highs with Thin Lizzy, going solo, and recording with artists such as Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce. Consequently, he's accumulated an impressive following over the years and musical library appreciated by most discerning music lovers. In 2010, he gave fans a terrific tour that culminated with a recorded appearance in Montreux, Switzerland where he played many favorites as well as three never-before-released tracks. About seven months later, on February 6, 2011, he died of a heart attack and the world lost an incredible and deeply soulful blues musician.

In mourning of his loss and celebration of his legacy, Gary Moore: Live at Montreux 2010 has been released as a CD/DVD combo, and we've got 3 to give away.
