Sharpen your pencils: It's time for a contest!

So, brain-dead me forgot that Brandi Carlile's promo folks were going to send me a copy of her stunning debut solo CD. I just got so dang riled up at the show that I went ahead and plunked down my scrilla and bought me a copy (which I have been enjoying ever since and wowing all of my friends, who say, "Who IS that?!").

But it is to your distinct benefit, because now I have an extra copy, and you have a chance to win this excellent CD.

Your mission is simple: Write me a limerick in the comments (or email me) about the state of music today (however you want to interpret that) by this Friday. Whichever one I like best will get the CD in their mailbox, once I can dig out of the snowdrifts currently surrounding my house. Make me laugh, think, cry, shudder. Dig?

PS - I know this is Brandi Carlile Central around here lately on the Fuel blog. You love it.

Now get to writing!

here's another one i just thought of (in addition to the one I emailed you):

In the musical climate we're in
So much of the story is spin
The issue, ergo
is my need to know
If Britney is knocked up again

How about the state of blogging in Florida?

I cannot write a limerick
But I do feel really sick

any more Ryan
'Cause Lost Highway records sucks dick

'k. Here's mine....

The DJs of times now long past
Played real music -- the kind that will last
But the DJs today
Only play what will pay
And wouldn't know "music" if it bit their fat ass.
