Saber Lily Giveaway

Image by Danny Choo
Does this 1/7 scale Saber Lily from Good Smile Company tickle your fancy? Does the half horse girl look like Saber? Are you feeling lucky today?

If the answer is "yes!" then you may want to participate in this giveaway to win this Saber Lily thanks to Kid Nemo who want to give one away worth 119.99 USD.

All you have to do is tell me how you discovered this site and why you decided to stick around. I think I asked this same question 2 years ago but there has been a load of churn since then so would be great to hear how readers since then came about the site. Also added a poll too.

"Churn" is an Internet marketing term that we used at Microsoft to describe how previous readers move on and new readers come on board.

Just pop your answer in the comments and I will let Mirai Gaia choose one at random this time next week and announce the winner on my Twitter or Facebook.

The last person to win a figure was Evil King who posted photos of his prize in the community uploads.

But! If you are not feeling so lucky, then you may want to secure your order of Saber Lily instead at Kid Nemo before they all get whipped up.

There is a poll embedded in this article.

****************************************

Back in the spring of this year (2009), I decided to pay a visit to Washington Square Park (pictures of which are available here), having earlier stumbled upon some photos I had taken there 40 years earlier, in the spring of 1969 (photos of which are included in this album). I was surprised to see that the park was undergoing massive renovation, and that the fountain was closed off; but some construction signs promised that it would be open once again in the summer …

So this past weekend, I decided to venture back to the park once again. The renovation was indeed finished; the fountain was operating again, and the warm, sunny weather had attracted throngs of New Yorkers and tourists to spend a pleasant afternoon engaged in all sorts of activities — much of which involved splashing around in the water. But there was also juggling and chess and scrabble, guitar-playing folk-singers and a violinist, two different jazz bands, and an energetic quartet singing old 1950s doo-wop ballads.

I spotted tourists and visitors from Japan, Italy, Scandinavia, and various parts of the U.S. People were sunbathing on various patches of grass around the edge of the park. There were children, students, lovers, families, and old hippies; and there were half a dozen dogs, at least a few of which enjoyed the opportunity to splash in the pool. There was an ice-cream cart and a hot dog stand, and if the park was anything like the old days, there probably at least a few places to buy drugs of every conceivable kind. For those who might have wondered what this place really was like in the "old days," there was a cheerful old guy (named Robert Fogelnest, from what I could find on the Internet) peddling copies of a book titled The Streets of Greenwich Village.

All in all, there was something for just about everyone. If you’ve got an afternoon free while it’s still summer here in New York City, I highly recommend a stroll through Washington Square Park. Remember: summer won’t last forever…

Village Landscape, Joos de Momper Detail 6

Image by David V. Hoffman
[This set contains 7 images] This is a creative commons image, which you may freely use by linking to this page. Please respect the photographer and his work.

Joos [or Joose as the North Carolina Museum of Art placard spells it] de Momper the Younger (1564–1635) was an important Flemish landscape painter, chronologically between Pieter Brueghel the Elder and Rubens. He used Mannerist colors in many of his landscapes, but in the more realistic depictions he used more natural colors. Around 500 paintings have been attributed to this artist. This artwork is high on the wall at the museum and consequently some distortion exists. Unfortunately I don’t even have a date for this work. Information abounds on Internet, but I relied on the quick but sketchy item found in Wikipedia.

This is the second painting I’ve put on Flickr by Joos de Momper; the first, Winter Landscape is at www.flickr.com/photos/universalpops/5538396970/ In addition, I’ve provided 10 separate, detailed shots of portions of this work, beginning with

Cool Viral Marketing images

A few nice viral marketing images I found:

5 Great Twitter Contests
viral marketing
Image by Stuck in Customs
The Best of Breed
If you have some more ideas, Tweet me at @TreyRatcliff!

I’ve been asking all my social media pals, photographer-friends, and others about some of the most successful and fun Twitter contests that have been run. I was sitting down with my publisher at @Peachpit, because we need to Give Away a few copies of "A World in HDR". While we thought of a few ideas, I thought we would open it up the Internet to see what we can find!

Frankly, and this might offend some people, I think that straight give-aways are crass and obvious. I think it can get you followers, but I can argue those are ill-gotten followers. You may disagree.

I think there are more fun, engaging, and productive ways to run Twitter contests. So, to that end, I’ve assembled some of the best below. If you have MORE, drop me a note in the comments, and I’ll do a redux soon! 🙂 Also, please, tell me your favorite contest idea and we can try to do something similar for the new book! I’ll probably have @Peachpit run the contests, since I don’t want to Tweet about give-aways once an hour on my personal Twitter account (@TreyRatcliff). Besides, you guys should follow Peachpit anyway, since they are a good company that publishes fantastic books.

1) The Michelle

So named, because it is the idea of Michelle Greer, a clever Twitter user and social media smarty-pants at Rackspace.
We pick a non-photography related blogger who frequently uses pictures in their posts to act as a judge (who’s interested??)
Judge announces a theme for the day (Landscape, architecture, etc) and announces via Twitter. We’ll get that Retweeted widely and repeatedly.
Contestant picks a photo that fits the theme, "Hey @TreyRatcliff and @Peachpit, this #hdr is inspiring (link)." Note this does not have to be MY photo…it can be yours, or anyone’s!
Judge picks the winner and uses it on their blog with attribution. Winner gets a the prize!

Why I like this idea:

People get to find and share great art online
People get to discover new photographers and new sites that feature them
I’m a big fan of Creative Commons (all my work is CC, no Commercial Use allowed without contacting us first). I think bloggers out there should know about all the beautiful photos from photographers that are available. And photographers who believe in creative commons LOVE to be featured on blogs.
Everyone likes eye-candy on Twitter!

2) The Trvial

Thanks to Eugene, a frequent guest on this site!
Send people on a scavenger hunt through a particular website to find something hidden

For example, we could ask, "How many nights in a row was Trey forced to eat borscht cooked by three Russian women in Argentina?"

The contest judge accepts tweets with real, creative, or funny answers.
The winner is selected randomly amongst those that got the right answer in 24 hours.

Why I like this idea

It’s fun and game-like
People get even more engaged in a website and might find some hidden gems
You have 24 hours to play, and you don’t have to be "quick on the draw"

3) The Macleod

A frequent guest of the site, Barbara Youngleson, brought this one up. Thanks Barbara!
This idea appears to have come from Hugh Macleod, the clever cartoonist and consummate cooligan
It works like this (more or less):

Purchase a book by any means, and send the PO over Twitter
A limited number of winners are chosen
Receive a second book, signed, for free. Give one to a friend!

Why I like it:

It is non-pushy
It rewards people that are real-enough fans to buy the book in the first place! Hehe.
Hugh did it, so it must have some coefficient of cool

4) The Threadless

This idea is being successfully executed at Threadless.com
If you see a Tweet you like, you can submit it to the contest
It is then voted on by the Threadless community
The best Tweets end up on T-Shirts and the Tweet author gets sweet cash.

Why I like it:

It’s incredibly fun and engaging.
It’s super-viral. I found out about it because someone nominated one of my Tweets: "If I get another dog, I shall name him ‘ROFL’."
Threadless is cool, and it is fun to be associated with a cool brand.

5) The Moonfruit

Moonfruit (a website buildin’ company) ran a good promotion where you can use the hashtag #moonfruit in any kind of Tweet
They selected a random person every day and gave away a MacBook Pro
It resulted in the #moonfruit hashtag being a trending topic and gaining over 30,000 followers

Why I like it:

It was very easy to enter
It was viral because you wonder why your friends are all talking about Moonfruit!

Today’s Photo
The photo today was taken at an awesome Indian restaurant in San Francisco called "Dosa". The manager was nice enough to allow me to move around and take a few photos after dinner. I was dining with the marketing and PR team from Peachpit (@Peachpit), who is publishing the book. Taking roll-call, we had Scott Cowlin (@ScottPeachpit), Sara Jane Todd (@SaraJaneTodd), and Laura Pexton (@Laura7). We sat around all night talking about having some fun Twitter contests for people to give away books… so here we are, and you get to vote on your favorites!

Dependent on a country’s chosen methods of electricity generation, I know… but still. The top three fuels used for generating electricity in the UK are

* Coal (37.5%)
* Natural Gas (36%)
* Nuclear (18%)

(Source: Department for Business Enterprise & Regulatory Reform, UK Energy in Brief, July 2007 ( www.berr.gov.uk/files/file39881.pdf ))

It is interesting to compare the statistics of 2007 to those of 2004 and 1990:

* gas – 39.93% (0.05% in 1990)
* coal – 33.08% (67.22% in 1990)
* nuclear – 19.26% (18.97% in 1990)
* renewables – 3.55% (0% in 1990)
* hydroelectric – 1.10% (2.55% in 1990)
* imports – 1.96% (3.85% in 1990)

Canadian born David Dixon, enjoys tremendous media acclaim, standing out among his Canadian contemporaries as one of the leaders in fashion design.

In 1995, after an apprenticeship with the world-famous Canadian designer Alfred Sung, Dixon established his own label. He started out at the Toronto Fashion Incubator, a highly respected training ground for up-and-coming new designers, and began manufacturing and wholesaling his own line in 1996. Dixon left the Incubator to launch his own Toronto-based design and production studio, but he remains affiliated with the TFI and sits on its Board as the President.

Today, David Dixon’s designs are sold across Canada and in the United States, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Switzerland, Germany, Tokyo and Hong Kong. Dixon possesses a modernist openness towards emerging design while rejecting the notion of radical change from one fashion trend to another. His innovative designs have won him a following among the elite communities of film and fashion, including: Meg Ryan, Noot Seear, Jeanne Beker, Wendy Crewson, Daria Werbowy, Ashley MacIsaac, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Paul Gross, Catherine O’Hara, Kristin Booth, Ivana Santilli and Katie Holmes.

More recently, Dixon has expanded his successful signature collection, and has partnered with several National and International brands to further the David Dixon label. Collaborations with the highly successful Town Shoes Chain have resulted in a nationally recognized David Dixon shoe line, while partnerships with The Shopping Channel and Mattel International have brought Dixon into other new and exciting arenas.

In 2008, Dixon secured the exclusive licensing rights for Barbie by David Dixon, a ready to wear collection for real women, to be sold across Canada exclusively through The Bay Department Stores. This collaboration with the International Brand Mattel and The Bay is the first of its kind in Canada. Of more recent in 2011, “David Dixon, LITTLE BLACK DRESS,” has been officially launched across Canada through The Bay.

Over the past two years Dixon, known for his attention to detail, integrity of the design process and over all high quality control expectations throughout all divisions of his brand, has expanded his companies marketing and sales strategies and now designs and sells several collections exclusively for the highly popular The Shopping Channel. This has reinforced Dixon’s belief that fashion is not just for the few, but also rather for everyone.

The ever-growing presence of the David Dixon brand will continue to develop in the years to come. Currently the David Dixon Signature Collection can be found at The Bay, Holt Renfrew, Simons, and specialty boutiques across Canada.

Martial Law via Food Control [?]: HR 2749
Not what the American people ordered – HR 2749, martial law and the enslavement of the farmers
By The Writers’ Collective
farmwars.info/?p=1145
Source: Food Freedom

HR 2749 is a strange bill in many ways. While the other “food safety” bills have been around since winter, allowing for much public discussion on the internet, HR 2749 has only suddenly appeared. It is a mutant conglomeration of the worst of the other bills, with the addition of one very original part – martial law.
When it was a draft, it was Waxman’s bill. But once given a number, it became Dingel’s who already had a “food safety” bill, HR 759. So Waxman got none and Dingel got two. (Was this because Waxman, being Jewish, was a hideous choice to introduce a bill with Codex in it – designed by the Nazi pharmaceutical companies that funded Hitler, provided the gas for the gas chambers, experimented on prisoners with vaccines – and is expected to kill millions?)

* HR 2749 would give FDA the power to order a quarantine of a geographic area, including “prohibiting or restricting the movement of food or of any vehicle being used or that has been used to transport or hold such food within the geographic area.”

[This – "that has been used to transport or hold such food" – would mean all cars that have ever brought groceries home or any pickup someone has eaten take-out in, so this means ALL TRANSPORTATION can be shut down under this. This is using food as a cover for martial law.]

Under this provision, farmers markets and local food sources could be shut down, even if they are not the source of the contamination. The agency can halt all movement of all food in a geographic area.

[This is also a means of total control over the population under the cover of food, and at any time.] See this DailyKos entry.

The bill is unusual, too, because slow as it was to appear. The little bugger of bill has made up for it since. It got a number on June 10, went to committee on June 17, passed instantly, and is headed for a vote on the floor of the House.

The first Patriot Act was passed using fear of terrorism. This Patriot Act is more coy, hiding under a cloak of “food safety” and but also using fear – fear of food contamination. Evidently, Americans are supposed to be so frightened by the slightest possibility of a terrorist or of E-coli, they would trade away all their precious, hard fought freedoms for the promise of safety. Or at least, that is what the trade-off has become. “Terrorism” and “contamination” are great bugaboos used to open doors to an end to the US Constitution. That is exactly what we are left with after those who wrote HR 2749 are done.

Who did write these bills? It seems Monsanto had not only a hand, but a “defining” influence. farmwars.info/?p=594

This redefining of reality is what seems to be underlying all the loss of freedom. Normal and free are disappearing into the maw of corporate definitions of reality. See this Yup Farming piece.

So, we begin with contaminated food from filthy corporate processors and concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs). And what do we end up with after that reality is ground up by corporate legal hands? Changes in the definition of risk so that natural things are treated as dangerous and toxic things are untouched, such that:

•Healthy, normal farms are taken over by government as though they were run by criminals and contaminated corporate slaughterhouses are untouched;
•The necessary freedom of individuals to live and grow food and be left alone are somehow suddenly destroyed, though they were never the source of any food contamination issue; and such that
•The profit and control and power of corporations which were absolutely the source of the increasingly terrible food, is somehow suddenly vastly increased.
Thanks to corporate control over reality, our wanting to clean up corporate processors and feedlots and CAFOS and end up with farmers’ markets and local farms and organic food has become the industrialization and potential destruction of every healthy part of the food system and the triumph of the most contaminated and toxic part. And in the non-bargain, we lost all freedoms and they took all control. And “all” is not a hyperbole here, for one need only look at another provision of HR 2749 to feel how insane, how distant from all we ever wanted.

* HR 2749 would empower FDA to regulate how crops are raised and harvested. It puts the federal government right on the farm, dictating to our farmers.

[What is missing in pointing out this astounding control, is that it opens the door to CODEX and WTO "good farming practices" will include the elimination of organic farming by eliminating manure, mandating GMO animal feed, imposing animal drugs, and ordering applications of petrochemical fertilizers and pesticides. Farmers, thus, will be locked not only into the industrialization of once normal and organic farms but into the forced purchase of industry’s products. They will be slaves on the land, doing the work they are ordered to do – against their own best wisdom – and paying out to industry against their will. There will be no way to be frugal, to grow one’s own grain to feed the animals, to raise healthy animals without GMO grains or drugs, to work with nature at all. Grassfed cattle and poultry and hogs will be finished. So, it needs to be made clear where control will take us. And weren’t these the "rumors on the internet" that were dismissed but are clearly the case?] See this DailyKos entry.

When we wanted not to get E-coli in processed meat, did we intend to put our farmers into corporate servitude? Did we plan to have our own lives straight-jacketed by a million new controls over our own gardens, our own desire to grow food, our own plans to start small businesses, our own dreams to have a small piece of land and farm ourselves? Who has the audacity to take our needs and grotesquely bastardize them in these ways, while giving the destruction and totalitarian control the sham name of “food safety”?

We wanted good food. We never wanted to trap our farmers into an industrial prison on their own land, afraid moment to moment of not fulfilling some monstrous set of instructions that never end – rules the farmers loathe, rules that have not only nothing to do with real farming but which are antithetical to it. Why have we ended up with HR 2749, an intense corporate nightmare around the most central and necessary aspects of a free country and of free human beings – farming and food?

American farming needs to be relieved of the burdens it has been under, not finished off by its corporate competition. It needs freedom to flourish again. Obviously – and Congress people who would think to vote for such absurdities, take note – the imposition of surveillance, monitoring, warrantless entry, taking of all records, licensing, fees, Codex and NAIS, in addition to massive penalties and prison terms (all without judicial review over even appropriateness and validity), are not how one thanks American farmers for holding together the only working part of our food system. See Literal Enslavement by Linn Cohen-Cole.

HR 2749 is the most vicious and insane bill one could imagine. Who treats our farmers in this way? Who believes that such police measures can provide for the rebirth of farming and the return of healthy food? Who wrote this bill that trashes the freedom of all our lives? HR 2749 was not what we ordered and it should be sent back the bowels of hell it came from.

HR 2749 is both insane and cruel. And the deceptiveness of hiding a Patriot Act in it and the brutal rush to slip it through Congress are ANTI-democratic.

Go here to tell Congress, “No.” www.ftcldf.org/petitions/pnum993.php
