Contest: Win an ENVY Beats Edition Laptop from Sheena Beaston and HP!

CONTEST IS NOW OVER. WINNER HAS BEEN NOTIFIED. THANKS TO ALL WHO ENTERED!

Straight to the point with that post title, eh? Well see... as you may or may not know (but really you should know because this site is the only one you read every day all day ever, right?), we've been in the raddest of cahoots with our buddies over at HP. We've been beasting out on the town and in the confines of our humble abode with the slick-as-all-get-out HP ENVY Beats Edition laptop. And the only way we know how to really say thank you and "see, we told you how rad it is" is by tossing one to a lucky reader. And no, we won't really physically toss it, cause that's a bad idea. But someone WILL in fact win this sweet slice of machinery.

Here's the haps as to how to score the winnings.

To be entered to win this contest, you must leave a comment on this post describing how and why technology and music make your every day life even radder. And you better make it beastly. I mean, REALLY BEASTLY.

 

You can be funny, witty, silly or serious, but one thing above all else, is to wow me with some piece of information or an anecdote about tech and tunes that knocks and rocks my socks off. Not necessarily saying that dropping the "Dre" name or some "Hey, HP is the ish" type of sentence structure makes you lead the pack in the drive to win, but hey... you never know.

 

Contest will remain open until 5pm ET on Friday April 8. If you have any questions, hit me here. Winner will be selected at my discretion and notified directly. Bam!

Win Tickets to See Freelance Whales at NYC's Webster Hall on December 15

Maybe it's the fact that Freelance Whales hail from Queens (Beaston borough representin'!), or even that they have that one song which they probably created in homage to our birth-given nomenclature, right? Most likely it's due to the notion that their songs are intrinsically unique and catchy, but yeah, here in the land a la the Beast, we simply can't get enough of 'em. And we'd like you to be obsessed with this troupe as well, so we're making it super easy for you and a pal to catch their live show this week.

The band hits Webster Hall's grand ballroom this Wednesday, and if you want to jump there on the free tip, here's your chance. Tickets come courtesy of our pals at Green Label Sound, where you can download a no-cost mp3 of FW's Enzymes. Sweet. But on to the tix...

Win Tickets to See The Roots and John Legend on December 7!

Earlier this month, I dropped some hot info that I'm in cahoots with HP and Beats by Dr. Dre, and while I'm reaping a lot of the benefits of a sweet new system and headphones (yeah, shameless plug here again), I also mentioned that you lucky little beasts would be privy to get in on the action too. Here's the first round of radness, and yo, it's a good one.

 

The roots

 

HP is all about music these days, and duh, so am I. They recently hooked me up with an ENVY 14 Beats Edition to test out and I'm digging the machine like a boss! Not only is HP making music sound good again on a computer, thanks to Beats Audio, but photos, movies and social networking is a breeze with Windows Live Essentials. To learn more about HP PCs with Beats Audio, hit this link hard.

 

So that's the legal mumbo jumbocities... below is the stuff you need to know if you want a pair of tickets to this exclusive, invite-only concert. Color us excited!

Contest: Win a Polaroid 300 Instant Classic Camera and Film!

Awesomest contest ever? Awesomest contest ever! The fine folks over at Polaroid were out at Virgin Free Fest a couple weeks back and had their team shoot a bunch of the headliners with their 300 Instant Camera. They used the photos to put together collages that convey a pretty intimate side of the musicians just before they were preparing to go on stage.
