Dreamers started a tour today. I readied myself to suffer through another crazy FOMO month waiting for my single show to arrive in June. The show where I will travel eight hours to get to freakin’ Fresno. Ugh, Fresno. (Being a Bakersfield native, please understand how bad this pains me that Fresno will be a vacation spot. I do adore Dreamers, so I will do it for their drugs.) This is all besides the point.
My point — I was done with the contest from last tour. Today I shipped out the prize package with mocha brownies, bittersweet chocolate chip and sea salt cookies, custom royal iced cookies, and an iTunes gift card. Finished. Ready to return to my normal, non-contest life where I watch the tweets fly about how everyone else is having fun while I do normal things like work, bake, and surf the internet. All the while cursing the fact I have not yet found a benefactor to pay for my life where I attend concerts on his/her behalf, take loads of pictures, and allow them to live vicariously through me. (If anyone is interested in sponsoring this life, I’m totally for sale.)
Then I got this tweet:
So I thought about all the new people seeing new shows. What fun will they have without a contest to play? Uh, let’s skip over the obvious answer where they get to live it up with Dreamers while I sit in my house and move right to the part where they need some concert contest fun activities because I must be involved in everything Dreamers. To help them, I decided to hold another contest. (Shout out to Whitney!)
This one is based on the Cards Against Humanity phenomenon (kinda), which goes along with the Dreamers theme from this cool card idea they have on the web. This game’s tagline is “A party game for horrible people.” OMG, it’s talking to me. I’m a horrible person who makes awkward and sexual innuendo jokes. Basically in the game you create your funniest answer to the fill in the blank question and a judge determines who wins. That’s what we’re doing here. And I’m the judge.
You wanna make cool as shizz Dreamers’ cards? Visit their site.
If you know anything about me, I love to take pictures. The funnier the better. This is why I’m always drawn to Nick (Dreamers’ lead singer.) He does some of the funniest selfies around. Here’s an example:
This is probably selfie #54. Should I mention now how I think Nick is pretty much the shit for being so cool? And Oh. My. God, he has perfect teeth.
To play in this contest, you need to attend a Dreamers’ concert and take your funniest selfie with Dreamers (one or all). When you do, tweet your picture, tag @DreamersJoinUs and me (@sprunty2000), and use the hashtag #DREAMERSaredrugs to be entered. Come on now, it wasn’t like you weren’t going to take a million pictures.
Be creative in how you set your selfie. Have Nelson be suave with his endearing smile. Bring props to spice up the mix. Beg Jacob to strike his most serious pose. Put on your best Dreamers’ inspired costume. Or ask Nick to be his awesome self to bring you home a win. Enter as many selfies as you would like by tweeting endlessly.
At the end of the tour I will pick the funniest selfie based solely on what cracked me up. (Hint: Feel free to ask what I think is hilarious. If I’ve been drinking, I’ll give you a long list.) If you win, a Delish prize package full of goodies will someday arrive at your door. In the end, you will have a sugar high, an awesome memory with Dreamers, and thank yourself for actin’ a fool on the internet.
One rule: Be respectful to Dreamers. If you’re an asshole, you’re out. Please know, I adore them with all my heart. If I get the slightest wind you dissed, intruded, or groped them, I will probably show up at your door for an ass kicking. Those gentlemen have always been gracious to fans (including me) so don’t fuck this up.
Have a good time! Thank Whitney for making this contest. And tell the Dreamers boys “Hi” from me (for extra points.) I can’t wait to see your pictures.
