I would be in heaven if I won this contest. I LOVE home cooked meals and the type of kitchen this $20,000 makeover would provide would be top of the line and well suited for all of my cooking needs.

As we already know, Kevin Smith is awesome, but you know what else is really awesome? Free sh*t! Add them together and you have our new contest. We are giving away a few copies of…


The official description:

Collecting some of the finest moments of Smith’s freewheeling conversations with his friend and producer Scott Mosier (as heard on their top-rated podcast, known as SModcast), this brand new book exposes more of the inner workings of Smith’s wonderfully weird mind.

Discover the genesis of Stalin’s Monkey Soldier army, the horrifying tale of Kevin vs. Steak Tartare, how to make bukkake eggs, the lengths to which Jason Mewes would go for a free comic, and how Kevin was once willing to let Alanis Morissette get mugged…

Lewd, crude and hilariously rude, these are just a few examples of the riches to be found within! Also featuring guest conversationalists Walt Flanagan and Bryan Johnson, fellow filmmaker and failed Canadian Malcolm Ingram, and even contributions from his wife Jen and daughter Harley, these are the humorous highs and cultural lows of Kevin Smith’s verbal diarrhoea…and he can’t wait to unload on you.

Now, how do you win your copy of Shootin’ the Sh*t with Kevin Smith: The Best of Smodcast?  Simply leave a comment on this article and let us know who your favorite Kevin Smith created character is! Is it Dante or Randal? Holden McNeil? Banky Edwards? Brodie? Jay or Silent Bob?

Also, to get a double entry into the contest, let us know your favorite Kevin Smith related story! It could be from the Smodcast, An Evening with Kevin Smith or one of his many Comic Con appearances. Three winners will be chosen on September 25th, 2009!

Eligibility/The Fine Print

To enter this contest, you must live in the United States or Canada. Simply leave a message in the comments section of this post and tell us who your favorite Kevin Smith character of all time is and you are entered into the contest.

Win Face Off on Blu-Ray

It is time for our July Giveaway! By popular demand we’ll be giving away John Woo’s Face/Off on Blu-Ray!  Personally, Face/Off is my favorite John Woo and Nic Cage flick.

The official description of the film:

In this plot-twisting, high-tech thriller, relentless FBI agent Sean Archer must go dangerously undercover to investigate the location of a lethal biological weapon planted by his arch rival, the sadistic terrorist-for-hire Castor Troy. After undergoing a radical surgical procedure, Archer literally “borrows” Troy’s face and identity to carry out his mission. But things go awry when Troy, emerging from a coma, transforms into Archer and wrecks havoc upon his life, both at work and at home. As the bomb continues to tick and the tension mounts, it becomes a high stakes game of cat and mouse as both Archer and Troy, ironically trapped in their enemy’s body, try to save face — their own.

Armani Jeans Contest

Armani Exchange is having a huge denim sale and contest, where you can win a pair of jeans a day throughout all of July.

The text A|X contest is easy to enter and you can take home a pair (or more) of Armani Exchange’s premium denim jeans. To enter the contest, all that you have to do is text the keyword “DENIM2” to Armani (276264). It is as easy as that. I checked out the site and there is no limit on the amount of times that you can enter. These are expensive and high quality jeans.

The Armani Exchange is also having a big sale with their line of “New Premium Denim starting at $98”. The above picture showcases my favorite three pairs of $98 dollar jeans. Included in the mix are the J101R Relaxed, the J65 Straight, and the J101 Boot Cut jeans. The J101R is on the left of the picture and is a low rise, boot cut and relaxed fit pair of jeans. The J65 is the middle pair and is a regular rise pair of jeans with a straight leg and a classic fit. The J101 is my favorite pair of the line (pictures on the all the way right); it is a low rise, boot cut, with a classic fit.

In addition to the $98 dollar sale, Armani Exchange is offering a deal where if you buy a regular priced pair of jeans between 7/7/09 and 7/19/09, than you will receive a giftcard of $20 dollars off your next purchase of $100 dollars or more.

Head over to Armani Exchange for more details on the contest and the sale.

What should my hollywood dream give away in a contest next

Summer is officially beginning and we are preping our first July contest and we’d like to hear from you guys! Please post a comment below with which item you’d like us to give away in our next contest. Thanks!

  • “Dead Until Dark” by Charlaine Harris. This novel is the first in the Sookie Stackhouse series that the hit HBO series True Blood is based on. If you are unfamilar with the series, it is based around a small town in Louisiana and how it is effected after vampires “come out of the coffin” and into the public eye after a synthetic blood is developed.
  • Face / Off on Blu-Ray.  My favorite John Woo film stars John Travolta as an FBI agent who must do the unthinkable to stop an evil terrorist’s plan, he must become him.  The disc contains a bunch of special features that you’ll never watch including commentaries by the director/writers, deleted scenes, an alternate ending, the trailer and more.
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer season one DVD. The classic vampire series by Joss Whedon focuses on the slayer (Sarah Michelle Gellar), one girl in all the world that is chosen to fight vampires and other demons.
  • “Intensity” by Dean Koontz. In this #1 New York Times bestseller, a “young woman staying as a guest in a Napa Valley farmhouse becomes trapped in a fight for survival with a self-proclaimed homicidal adventurer, and races to warn his next intended victim. Unrelentingly terrifying, this book lives up to its name.”
  • Bee Movie on Blu-Ray. This charming animated film is from the mind of Jerry Seinfeld and co-stars the voice of Renee Zellweger. The disc contains a bunch of features including storyboards, triva, commentaries, deleted scenes, and an alternate ending.

And last but not least…

  • Chicken Run on DVD. This stop motion animation from the creators of Wallace & Gromit stars the voices of Mel Gibson and Timothy Spall. Included in the special features is a “read-along” of the script.

So, which of these items would you like to see us give away? Don’t forget to vote in the comment section of this article!
