Our short and sweet WB contest has ended and we have a winner. Long-time U.K. fan Martin England will receive a copy of Wordburglar’s classic vinyl EP and an old school Wordburglar t-shirt, as seen in the photo above being prepped for packaging. All other contest entrants should expect to receive a message in the next day or two with a discount code for those who would like to order their own copy. Thank you to all who entered.
And surprisingly, there was a lot of difficulty identifying Norma Bates from Psycho as the silhouette in the window. The rest are, from left to right, actor David Cross, Irish vampire Cassidy (from the Preacher comics), Transylvanian vampire Dracula, Twiki (from Buck Rogers), rapper Pigeon John (who guests on the EP), greatest American hero Scarlett (from G.I. Joe), Wordburglar, and in the sky watching over it all is a generic alien.
Pick up a copy of the vinyl for yourself here: http://handsolorecords.bandcamp.com/album/wordburglar-ep-vinyl

After much delay, Wordburglar’s not-so-easy-to-find vinyl EP is now available on Bandcamp. To celebrate, we wanted to hold a contest to win a copy of Wordburglar’s vinyl EP and a Wordburglar t-shirt (your choice of either of his two “I Burgle Words” designs).
Two easy steps:
1. Like the Hand’Solo Records Facebook page.
2. Send a private message to the Hand’Solo Records Facebook page (or click here) correctly identifying four of the individuals and/or characters depicted on the album cover (conveniently supplied above).
RULES AND OTHER STUFF:
The deadline to submit your answers is Sunday, October 13 at midnight EST. The winner will be randomly selected out of a hat and notified by private message within 24 hours of the contest deadline. In order to be eligible to win, you must be a member of the Hand’Solo Records Facebook page. Good luck!
And for the curious, you can check out (and purchase) some of the vinyl EP here:

Seriously, how did Grandpa Funnybook’s Mix-Tapingly Arranged Rapping Song Album 3! hit the top of the hip hop charts?
That was last week at CJLO at Concordia in Montreal. Whoever made this happen, thank you! We love you! Unfortunately it’s slipped to number 2 this week, but still the mixtape is now in its fourth week roaming around on CJLO’s hip hop top ten.
And CFRU at University of Guelph, you’re no slouch either with three weeks in a row at number 10, baby! Consistency. And so, we love you too!
