Title: Write a Christmas Poem to Dan thread - prize involved!
Post by: gina164 on December 12, 2010, 06:03:06 PM

POETRY CONTEST!
Aloha, fellow Dan friends & family~

I just, spur of the moment, decided to offer Dan's fan forum members a little Christmas contest~

Since many of us tend to either be into writing poetry and/or lyrics, or are just kinda artsy, in general ;-), I want to do a "Write A Christmas Poem to Dan" contest.

You all have up until 12/24 to submit your BEST shot - ONE shot each...NO editing allowed...

The winner, picked by me (because there can be multiple IDs with SOME users  - not me, though) will receive a VERY SPECIAL prize...  [If you know me, you'll know that I am good for my word!  I also own 89 DJ drawings...so, it's HIGHLY LIKELY that one of them will be the prize!]

I will send 'it' to anywhere on the face of the Earth...sorry, Martians not eligible to participate. (...family members ARE eligible, though!)


With that, I shall now extend my very warmest Happy Holiday Wishes to one and all, and will not come back to this thread until it is time to announce the winner!  If you have ?s, please PM me (personal message).

Good luck, and enjoy the poetry contest!

*<{ ;~)   Gina, in Hawai'i...on The Big Island, where we now have snow!

Ok, here's my shot -

Christmas should be fun
Christmas should mean love
Christmas should be the kiss
You can't stop thinking of

Christmas should be understanding and true
You'd wait all year, and it would be waiting too
Best wishes, Daniel Johnston
I know Christmas is waiting for you

10:46 PM here in the islands...

and, only one submission to Dan...wow...what's up with his fan forum?

Well...good news...Katzel...I LOVED your poem...perhaps others who thought of entering realized that you might be the winner... and just chose to let you win the deserved prize?

In any case, I love what you wrote...EXCELLENT.  I will now copy and paste it to his bro...

I will be sending to you an 'authenticated' (by Dan's bro) DJ drawing before mid-January (they are in a safe deposit, so will get it out in early January!).

Please send your mailing address to me via Private Message, and tell me a little bit about yourself, so that I can pick out an appropriate drawing for you.

Thanks for caring enough about Dan, and yourself, to participate! I look forward to hearing on here what you think of your prize! <3

"CONGRATULATIONS TO KATZEL!"



AND
Mele Kalikimaka, to all, from Hawai'!! 

Gina

Guess we just weren't feeling it this time around. No judgments though, eh?

I saw this and I wanted to enter but I farted around too much and couldn't come up with anything. This forum is pretty dead though and I wish it wasn't.

Am on Maui thru the 21st... chose drawing to send to Katzel before my trip... meant to bring it to mail from here, but left it, with my sister's bday gifts (oops), on dining table :(

Katzel... it's an 'untitled' Authenticated-by-Dick -Johnston pen and marker drawing from 2005.
(Signed authenticity paper included, of course.)
I think you'll appreciate it. Can scan it in myself before mailing~

I'll get to a post office Monday, 1/24, barring a volcanic eruption or tsunami :-)

CHEERS!
Gina

I forgot to scan before sending - may have the image on a disc, but not handy, due to being in-between moves - am moving to other side of the Big Island, in with my love...

Katzel...gotta scanner? :-)
