Oasis asks the Lord to please not slow them down, offers you a dandy little vinyl
New contest for the weekend! I am in NYC still this morning, and thankfully the sun finally came out. I think we're going to Central Park and a pass by the Dakota this morning, brunch at "Sarabeth's" and then a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge? I've walked through about 8 or 11 or a million neighborhoods; feet are protesting but I am continuing to have my way with them, regardless of what they want. There's just too much good stuff to see. We also may be on a frozen yogurt quest later since we enjoyed this all-the-rage sour kind yesterday in Greenwich Village and we pretty much just keep talking about it.
My friend's Queens apartment is stocked with many shelves of fabulous books but no turntable, however, I wouldn't mind getting my hands on this sweet 'lil prize pack that I'll put up for today.
CONTEST: I've got two 7" vinyl singles of the new Oasis tune "Lord Don't Slow Me Down" to bestow on someone's collection. The song is from their new forthcoming DVD by the same name, which includes both the feature-length documentary that screened in select theatres last year tracing their 2005 tour (and shenanigans) but also a second disc of straight live concert footage from their epic homecoming show in Manchester.
Listen to the song and watch the little video dealie here:
You can also download the tune on iTunes.
To enter your name to win seven inches of goodness, please leave me a comment, and to amuse me also include a favorite Gallagher brother quote. There's no shortage of obnoxious, ridiculous, hilarious things these boys have said over the years, so you've got lots of options.
As always, make sure I have a way to contact you, and maybe spell out that email addy to avoid spamalot. I'll wrap up this contest sometime after I get back from NYC, so early next week. Lookee what you win:
Oh, and an update: In all this travel excitement, I didn't forget about you guys and that Dylan "I'm Not There" soundtrack CD contest that wrapped Wednesday. There were a total of 97 comments, and I wanted to pick a random pair of winners, so I went up to strangers in the airport and asked them to pick a number between one and 97. Um, a few strange looks later, I got my two numbers, and will be contacting the lucky winners. I will probably do a Dylan covers post at some point in the future, since you guys came up with some amazingly random and interesting-sounding versions.
