Originally from California, Serena is currently battling the winter in Boston and is looking forward to a big box of music to keep her company. Just remember, it may be snowing, but you can at least be thankful there are no Boston-via-California Woman Twitters yet. Congrats Serena, and thanks to everyone who entered!
It’s back! Perhaps you remember the Best Music Contest Ever Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV or last year’s wood anniversary of the annual contest where we take on the stupidly huge project of gathering up records from each of the artists and bands we decided were the “greatest”, only to give them all away to one lucky asshole. Last year, some girl in Florida got two canvas totes full of roughly 100 records, CDs, books and tapes and this year it could be you! From our extensive Best Of 2014 lists, we’ll be giving away somewhere in the ballpark of 100 releases… To one person… Will it be you? Probably not, but you should still enter.
So what do you have to do to?
Simple, just like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter or Instagram. If you’re already doing all three, then we love you. But you can also enter by simply retweeting this (https://twitter.com/IMPOSE/status/552514257087393792) or sharing this photo (http://instagram.com/p/xhUJStvYh1/). Make sure to include @impose (@imposemagazine on Instagram) so we’ll see it and put your name in one of those bingo cages.*
* We will accept all Facebook, Twitter and Instagram submitions between January 06-February 09, 2014. The contest will run until 11:59pm on Monday, February 09, 2014. One winner will be randomly chosen by 12pm noon on Tuesday, February 10, 2014 and announced on this page by Friday, February 13.
That’s all you have to do.
