To celebrate our first birthday, we thought it would be nice to do a little competition for our regular readers. The Boosh Boys have very kindly chucked a couple of dvds our way, and whilst we know many of you will have them already – it’d still be nice to win them: you could always throw them at non-fans and see what the results are.
We are able to offer you a limited edition Future Sailors boxset and a copy of series three of The Mighty Boosh to the winner. The limited edition boxset features both the 2006 & 2008 live tour dvds, plus extra material, and comes complete with a Boosh tin, a pack of Outrage playing cards and a monkey-head belt buckle.
To be in with a chance, simply comment on this post with an alternate name for this site. If we weren’t called The Velvet Onion – what could we be called? You could have something else from the Booshniverse, or a play on words… The Cord Lettuce, perhaps? Take your pick!
Comment on this post with your entry, and we’ll put all of them in a public poll – the winner of THAT will win the Future Sailors boxset and a copy of Boosh series three. They’ll also receive a one-off print of The Velvet Onion 2011 Calendar which we put up for free download at Christmas, to keep in their Booshy collection.
Two runners up will receive a copy of Boosh series three on dvd.
As a little something extra, we’ll also chuck in an exclusive TVO button badge from a test-run we ran late last year for all our winners.
We’ve been looking into designs for button badges that we could maybe sell on site to help pay for our upkeep, and the only people on the planet who have this particular design right now are TVO staff, a few select friends and some of the artists we feature who we’ve managed to corner at various events, so these are particularly rare and will never be available again in this form.
Good luck, and be as creative as you can be!
Entries must be received by midnight on Sunday night/Monday morning (7th Feb) GMT. All dvds are Region 2, but we will take entries from anywhere in the world. The poll will be set up w/c Monday 7th Feb and run for 1 week. The editors decision is final, and if you win, your details will not be shared with any other party – we’ll just need your address so we know where to send your stuff!
EDIT – As usually happens we forgot a rule. Please only enter a MAXIMUM of three suggestions. If you’ve got more than three in your post – please pick your best three and reply to your comment telling us which you prefer!
