Hey all. It’s taken me a moment to randomly select and announce the contest winners; life got crazy hectic for a while. However, now it’s time to present the winners of the Gasmask Facemask contest:


Thanks to everyone for entering and sharing your music selections. Also, BIG THANKS to Gasmask Facemasks for participating and providing the awesome prizes!


Recently, Gasmask Facemasks and I connected on Twitter. Once I checked out their website and saw their product, I was hooked. A mask that’s going to keep me warm in cold sub-zero weather, with cool, fun graphics on it; I would definitely rock one of these on the slopes!

Gasmask Facemasks is the brainchild of owners Joseph Shubat and Kyle Sartorelli of MIAD (Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design), who is also the artist. They have some exciting things in the works: Currently, Gasmasks is a proud official sponsor of Timberline Lodges Olymptricks rail jams at Mt. Hood in Oregon. For next year, Gasmasks will be sponsoring a rider on the U.S. Olympic Snowboard team for the 2010-2011 season, a friend of Joseph’s; they’ve been riding together since he was 11 years old! Look out for their logo on his board.

In the meantime, Gasmasks is giving you a chance to snag one of their facemasks. There’s three great designs to choose from: the GasMask!, Cid Vicious! (my personal fav) and Doobie!. Just leave a comment in answer to the contest question: What song or album is a MUST on your playlist when you hit the slopes (or just makes you want to jump around)?

Listen, I won’t judge you on your taste in music. I just thought it’d be interesting to share everyone’s music selections; you might end up with some new music on your playlist! The winner will be picked randomly from a draw.

Don’t get left in the cold, ladies and gents, enter now. Also, pass the word along to anyone who might be interested. Good luck!

**For those who don’t snowboard, it’ll keep you warm and toasty in the winter chill! Goggles not included

Hey everyone. It’s time to announce the winners of Emilio’s Pocket Giveaway contest! The winners with the best “worst/weirdest gifts” answers are…

** Leebs, whose friends gave him a “model hand sex toy of a famous porn star in Japan that was known for his finger strength” and had to explain his way through customs at the airport. Ok, WHOA :X

** Hilary, who was lucky enough to get a “navy polyester button down with mushrooms all over it” from an old ex-boyfriend, only to have it resurface recently on myspace with him wearing it!! Indian giver and/or cross-dresser??

And, just for the sheer creepy factor, I felt the need to pick a THIRD winner, which goes to…

** Diane, who was given a “hair doll, made of real human hair.” Aaaaaghhhhhh!! The horror!

WOW… Things that make you go HMMMMMMMM…

Leebs will receive the pocket (though I don’t know that it’s large enough to fit that strange toy), Diane gets a pocket too and Miss Hilary is getting the sandwich pin!

A BIG THANKS to Emilio Santoyo for his wonderful prizes. Check out his online store for fun and original stuff that would actually make cool gifts. Also, thanks to everyone who participated and showed their support.

Tune in, as I plan to go back to my regularly scheduled postings this week!
