This is what happens when you quit your corporate job.

It seems there are a lot of people throwing caution to the wind and quitting their jobs, even with the still tenuous economical situation. My cousin Sam quit her cushy job and is now a full time artist and designer. And her first project involves your ass (hopefully).

Rules and details are here. 100 bucks and bragging rights to show off what your momma gave you? Not bad.

Ticket Giveaway: Grand Archives Tonight AND Tomorrow

grandarchivesss.jpgSeattle’s Grand Archives put out their newest, Keep In Mind Frankenstein, last month after grappling with a serious case of writer’s block in the studio, namely on standout track “Oslo Novelist”. But once the music was laid down, the words just fell into place, and thank goodness. This orchestral and slightly weepy (read: Pacific Northwest) version of a classic southern saloon resonance, is sure to warm your bones.
Since it’s starting to get chilly, we’d like to think we’re in the business of making our readers happy– so we’ve got two pairs of tickets to see Grand Archives, tonight at Le Poisson Rouge and tomorrow night at Southpaw. Holler at us on twitter with this message:
RT @freedubya Win tickets to see Seattle’s Grand Archives TONIGHT @lprnyc or TOMORROW at Southpaw. Simply RT to Win!
OR hit us up on the contest’s Facebook thread!

Update: WE HAVE WINNERS!
