Welcome, welcome, welcome to the third annual soundtrack giveaway here at the Ink Slinger blog. I am your host, Caesar Flickerman, and this year our contestants will be fighting to the death for a chance to win one of the best soundtracks of 2012.
If you’ve participated before, you know how this works. If you haven’t, you’re probably wondering what’s going on. “A soundtrack giveaway? What is that?” Well, it’s just like any other giveaway. Only instead of getting a quilt, a CD, or a book, the winner gets a soundtrack.
“Fine,” you say. “Makes sense. But why soundtracks? I don’t see other bloggers giving away soundtracks.” I’m glad you noticed, because that’s the point. Nobody else I know of is doing this sort of thing, so I’m doing it.
“And what if I don’t listen to soundtracks, or enjoy them?” Well, in that case, I’d have to say – very kindly – that you’re missing out. Big time.
2012 has yielded many fine film scores from many fine composers, but only two will be featured in this giveaway. Those two are The Dark Knight Rises (Hans Zimmer) and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Howard Shore). Magnificent work from two of the best in the business.
Leave a comment if you would like your name to be entered in the drawing. To increase your chances, share this giveaway on your blog and/or link to it via social networking. Let me know you have done so, and I’ll enter your name once for each share. The giveaway will close at 12pm MT on Friday, December 21st. A name will then be drawn and the winner will recieve his/her choice of the soundtracks featured (in MP3 format).
