Mortal Instruments: Splat Hair Color Prize Pack Giveaway — here are our winners!


After getting a whole lotta entries, I’ve finally winnowed it down to the top 5 entries in the Mortal Instruments: Splat Hair Color giveaway!  Yaaaaay!  *ahem*

And the winners are:

  • Summer Walter, who would like to be a witch; “Witches can cast spells over the werewolves , vampires, shapeshifters! Not to mention witches can do good things, but don’t double cross them because they could cast an evil spell as well or curse you!”
  • Stephanie Grant, who wants to be “a hybrid Shadowhunter/Vampire that way I would have both sets of assets at my disposal and be on the good side of the battle. I could walk in the daylight and be able to turn into a bat and fly what could be cooler?”
  • Ebony Brown, for the Heroes shoutout; her choice would to be “Peter f’n Petrelli! I would absorb any powers to be had and kickbutt!”
  • Bri Elliot, because she’d like to be “a shadow hunter. I like to kick ass and take names!”
  • Steve Rauch, for making a good point; he’d be a “Vampire, since they get the prettiest girls!”

A great big, huge thank you to every single person who entered!  I had a blast reading all the responses, and now if anyone ever asks what I’d be, I’ll have a good answer.

Winners, your prize pack will be winging it’s way out to you asap.  Congratulations!

Mortal Instruments: Splat Hair Color Prize Pack giveaway!

Yes, I read YA Fiction.  I ain’t ashamed.  Because most of the time, that stuff is amazing.  Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Divergent, The Infernal Devices…and that’s just a sampling of what’s come around lately.  (Don’t get me started on classics like Lord of the Flies, Earthsea and The Hobbit.  Yes, The Hobbit was considered a book for the young’uns.)  Some of these have been made into films, some haven’t.  Some are on the way to you.  Which brings me to another series that’s pretty darn tasty, The Mortal Instruments.

What’s this particular tale about?  Oh, I’ve got you.  Here’s the synopsis of the first book, and the movie, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones:

Set in contemporary New York City, a seemingly ordinary teenager, Clary Fray (Lily Collins), discovers she is the descendant of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of young half-angel warriors locked in an ancient battle to protect our world from demons. After the disappearance of her mother (Lena Headey), Clary must join forces with a group of Shadowhunters, who introduce her to a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld, filled with demons, warlocks, vampires, werewolves and other deadly creatures.  Based on the worldwide best-selling book series.

I’ve read this novel and let’s just say there ain’t no lovestruck, happy vamps and werewolves around these particular parts.  City of Bones stars Lily Collins (Mirror, Mirror), Jamie Campbell Bower (The Twilight Saga), Robert Sheehan (Misfits), Kevin Zegers (Gossip Girl), Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), Kevin Durand (Lost), Aidan Turner(UK’s Being Human), among many more.  Nice, right?  Absolutely.

So, wanna head to the theater and catch a show, for free?  This ain’t no screening invite, it’s a “you get free tickets to the movies” contest.  Plus there’s more….

Geeky Giveaway: World War Z soundtracks!

The movie came a’tcha at the speed of sound.  So isn’t it just and right that you get your hands on the soundtrack?  Y’know, the soundtrack by Muse and Marco “I wrote the soundtrack for Scream” Beltrami that Huffington Post says is “Perfect”?  Yes, you need it.  Here at Geek for e, we’d like to help you with that.



We’ve got 4 copies of the original soundtrack to World War Z, and we’re giving ’em away!  Yes, yes we are.  How to you win yourself a copy?  It’s easy.

What’s your favorite horror movie music?  The Exorcist‘s “Tubular Bells”?  Or maybe when John Carpenter tweaked that score for HalloweenJaws‘ scary-cool DA-DUM?  Or the 80s throwdown of The Lost Boys?

THERE’S NO WRONG ANSWER FOLKS.  I’m just curious.  And I’ll pick four winners from among the entries.

How to enter?  Oh, you know the drill.  Send me an email with the subject line “Surviving The Zombie Apocalypse With Muse“.  Include your name, snail-mail address (how else am I gonna get it to you?) and a bit about your favorite horror movie music.  That’s it.  Do it by Monday, July 1st at 5:00pm and you could be a winner!

No guarantees that Muse’s music will soothe the savage zombie, however.  For defeating the hordes of undead you’re on your own.

But if you’re holding a copy of the World War Z soundtrack?  Just know I’ll be jealous of you as I sprint away from the infected.

(NOTE: This giveaway is for US folks only.  Because I’m too cheap to send out to winners overseas.  There, I said it.)

Wanna win a Blu-Ray copy of A Haunted House?

As y’all know, I love horror movies.  I also love movies that make fun of horror movies.  Y’know, as long as they’re funny.

For example, A Haunted House, which just hit Blu-Ray late last month.  It’s a spoof that brings together a few of my favorite funny folks (like Marlon Wayans, Nick Swardson, Cedric the Entertainer, David Koechner and J.B. Smoove) and puts ’em in, you guessed it, a haunted house.

From IMDb:

Malcolm and Kisha move into their dream home, but soon learn a demon also resides there. When Kisha becomes possessed, Malcolm – determined to keep his sex life on track – turns to a priest, a psychic, and a team of ghost-busters for help.

Now there’s a man who has his priorities straight!  And I’m sure that there will be plenty of laughs along the way.

But sometimes there’s a movie that is downright hilarious…but wasn’t supposed to be.  That horror movie that has more people howling with laughter than in fright.  I’m sure you guys know what I’m talking about.  Why am I so sure?  Because that’s the key to this giveaway…. *cue evil laughter*

* A Pub — always a favorite.

* Stark Industries — great idea, but if I told you the super-secret location, I’d have to kill you.  Nobody wants that.

* A Starbucks — hooray for coffee and coffee cake!

* A Mall — mmm, shopping.

* A Museum — now THAT is something that strikes a chord in my DC-area-born heart!

* The Inner Harbor/Harbor East — as I live in SoBo, that’s very tempting.  Very.

* A comic book store — Marvel loves you guys right now.

So, what won?  Drumroll please….


Here’s the when/where:


Arundel Mills Mall

Monday, April 22, 2013 — from 5-7pm, or until the passes run out.  (I’ll also have cute Iron Man 3 temporary tattoos; thanks Marvel!)

At the Starbucks (see how I tied in a few groovy ideas right there?)

As always, I’m the nerdy chick with brown hair and glasses.  It’s how I roll y’all.  Hope to see you guys!

REMEMBER: Passes do not guarantee admittance; entrance is first-come, first served.  So if you see me and snag a pass or two, make sure you get to the screening early to grab a seat!

Free Screening Passes: Bullet to the Head, January 28th

Gotta say I loved when Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger hit the stage at the Golden Globes.  Their “no, YOU speak English worse than I do!” skit was just adorable.  And just about right….

But you can judge for yourself, at least where Sly is concerned; we’ve got screening passes for his latest, Bullet to the Head.  It also stars Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) and Christian Slater, and is directed by Walter Hill (48 Hrs, Last Man Standing)

From IMDb:

After watching their respective partners die, a cop and a hitman form an alliance in order to bring down their common enemy.

There are 80 tickets available; each person will be allowed to download two tickets to this screening.  Nice, right?  I think so.

GOFOBO code and other info after the jump!
