Winners, please email me at the address listed on my profile to tell me where to send your well-earned booty.
So, the first round of Name That Face has been up and running for a while, but as June ends, so too shall Round 1.
The five highest point-earners will be awarded prizes. I thought of what I think is a neat way of giving the prizes out.
The highest point-earner gets to choose a prize out of the five available. The next highest point-winner will choose from the four remaining prizes, and so on, until the fifth highest point-winner hopefully likes whatever crap the other four people didn’t want.
Anyways, here are the prizes for Round 1, in no particular order.
A DVD of the famous Gary-Coleman-lives-in-a-train-locker dramedy On The Right Track! I saw this about a bejillion times when I was a kid, and imagine it still retains the whimsy I faintly remember.
A signed 8×10 of Jim Belushi! It has a few scuff marks, which you might be able to see from the scan. Note: I did not personally obtain this autograph — I bought it at a collectible store near my house. I’m wagering it’s authentic, as I do not know why someone would attempt to fake a Jim Belushi signature.
A wonderful book, consisting of interviews of Alfred Hitchcock conducted by fellow director François Truffaut.
A crab robot. It’s pretty cool. What does it have to do with faces? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
Cut out all the paperwork jibber-jabber with this stylish Mr. T rubber stamp!
I’ll probably take a break (and give Twitter followers a little break as well) for a week or so after Round 1, then I guess I’ll crank up Round 2. I was planning on resetting everyone’s points back to zero for the next round to even the playing field. I’ll still keep the tally of Round 1 for posterity’s sake (assuming that anything related to Twitter should have posterity).
Okay, thanks a lot for playing.
P.S. For people unable to get into the top five, I do have web-based complimentary awards that are available for the taking.
