LiveJournal Major Notes: Postcard winners, Tweaks, LJ_Cares

Postcard winners!

We wish to extend our heartfelt gratitude for sending so much joy our way. Frank is still blushing with excitement over the love notes, proposals, propositions, and occasional intimate photos sent from his admirers around the world (China, Norway, Japan, and Poland just this week)! At his request, we blindfolded Justin, one of Frank's BFFs, spun him around in five dozen counterclockwise circles, and asked him to point to ten random postcards/envelopes pasted to the wall. After a brief trip to the bathroom, he chose the following lucky winners, to whom we will give a six-month paid account token (for paid, basic, and plus users) or, for our permanent account holders, a $15 voucher for the LiveJournal gift shop.

So, without further ado, the winners are:

  1. seraphene
  2. fotog
  3. boykitten
  4. designgeek
  5. anti_aol
  6. lisalees
  7. katrinkacat
  8. mistyboston
  9. _woody_lein
  10. another_slender

Conquer Writer's Block

Here are some excerpts from this week's most popular question of the day:

If you could only listen to one CD for the rest of your life, what would you choose and why?

  1. Hmmm, gosh this is a hard question. I guess I'll say any of Sarah McLachlan's albums, but definitely the Surfacing album. I love everything that woman does - it calms me, speaks to me, inspires me ... Read More | Leave a comment
  2. "Honeysuckle Rose" by Willie Nelson. It's the soundtrack to the film of the same name, and has many fine performances of some of Willie's best tunes. BTW, this question just isn't fair!:)
  3. I could listen to the Goo Goo Dolls Dizzy Up The Girl album. By far one of my favorite albums because it just always brightens my mood, or fits any mood I'm in.
  4. Swans Soundtracks for the Blind. It's lush and textural music makes my mind wander into its innermost recesses.
  5. I would say, "Screw that!" grab all of my CD's, and haul ass. :3
  6. Only one CD...hmmm...That's a hard one and I would say it would have to be a tie between 3 CDs: Master of Puppets by Metallica, Zeppelin 4 by Led Zeppelin and Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd.
  7. Well first I would kill myself.Second it would probably be Twin Cinema by The New Pornographers: Every single song has been my favorite song at some point...
  8. The Black Parade from My Chemical Romance. This CD is the CD that saved me multiple times and so if I could only listen to one CD why would it not be the one that saved me before because if i only had one CD I would probably go through the same things as before.
  9. Matchbox Twenty - More Than You Think You Are. No one sings better than Rob - (reminds me I need Rob Thomas icons)
  10. Led Zeppelin II. Seriously, why even ask?


Thanks, again, for joining us. See you next week!
