Ahh. I'm the fan that deserves this the most, because I have followed him since TREOS, I love all the Acts, and this Color Spectrum is the greatest concept EP package thing known to man. Can't even imagine having a creativity like this man. And, I'm going to the show on Jan 15th, which I've already gotten 5 of my friends to both get into the Color Spectrum and buy tickets to the show. So I show support.
I reluctantly purchased "The Color Spectrum: The Complete Collection" digitally after having all of their releases on both vinyl or cd and the vinyl was too expensive for a starving college student (myself) in the teaching program. I haven't been able to work 17 weeks this past year due to student teaching
Regardless of my financial situation, I decided to purchase the digital version to support the band only to have them release it on cd a few months later.. I should be the one chosen as the recipient of this giveaway because I am an avid collector of physical copies of music and unlike many who downloaded it illegally I put my money behind great, inspirational music such as The Dear Hunter.
The only time I've ever won anything was that time Coke was doing the promotion in which if the whole top of your can came off when you opened it, you'd win one million dollars. Well the whole top of my can came off, but it was just $100. Then, when the check came in the mail, I was so excited to open it, I accidentally ripped the check a little. I thought I wouldn't be able to cash it, so I cried.
That, coupled with the fact that I love The Dear Hunter, is why I should win.
I think I deserve to win because I've always been a huge Dear Hunter fan, and I always will be. Plus, I have the rest of the Dear Hunter discography with the exception of this collection. I'm also a college student trying to pay bills and get an education, and the Dear Hunter's music is perfect to study and do work to. I'd be honored and extremely happy if I were to win this contest. Please choose me, I will forever be grateful.
How about the fact that I grew a beard when I was twelve years old?
Or because I have a shot glass full of pistachio shells in my room?
Maybe because I can sing "I Have Joy Down in My Heart" in Spanish?
Or, due to the sad fact that my right eye twitches regularly, especially during stressful or intense conversations?
Or maybe, just because of eggnog.
