Yes, that’s right, the competition has now closed and I’m about to announce the winners…
…but before I do, I’d like to make a comment about the high quality of all the entries. Unfortunately, I can’t. Zing!
Well, Malakian’s keyboard was fairly special, but since he didn’t provide any audio (as he promised), I don’t really feel that I can give him the prize. Solojony’s pictures were interesting interpretations of the term “‘special’”, but not really up to the sheer shock value of the others.
Nadroj’s picture of an adult entertainer of limited stature, and ArtemisGoldfish’s just-so-very-wrong image were the ones that did it for me. Congratulations, guys. Send me your addresses using the contact form and a very wonderful copy of “Special” will be on its way to you.

Just as we announce our Latvian Bad Day LA Determinance Tournament, so too we have two copies of brand new indie comedy Special – The Movie to give away to YOU, humble reader. Don’t ever let it be said that we don’t have quality prizes here at Mode 7.
Here’s some lovely fresh blurb about what you could win:
“Les Franken, a lonely parking enforcement officer who enjoys reading comic books, decides to take part in a clinical trial for a new and exciting antidepressant called ‘Special’.
An unexpected side effect of the drug renders him with superpowers – or so he thinks. While his doctor dismisses the drug’s side effects as an adverse psychological reaction to the medication, Les takes his cue from the comics he reads to embrace his newfound “powers” and quits his job to devote his life to fighting evil, real or imagined.”
So, yes, a free movie, lovingly posted using the postal service by myself, right to your door. But what do you have to do to achieve this?
You just have to take a picture. It can be a photo or a screengrab…anything really. And it has to be “special”. The two most “special” pictures will win the movies. Just take your picture, host it on the internet, and post a link to it in a comment after this post.
Here are the rules:
1.) Nothing too disturbing – I don’t want to be upset even more than usual
2.) Make it “special” – it’s up to you to define what that means
3.) My decision is final etc. yada yada….
EDIT: I would prefer also if the entries were not Photshopped extensively (but this is not a hard and fast rule). They don’t have to be related in any way shape or form to Determinance.
EDIT 2: The contest will end on…Friday the 2nd of March…if nobody enters then I’ll eat the DVD’s.
