GiveItAway, by The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Maybe one of the weirdest videos, ever, But I love it. Anthony Kiedis' gouche is an added bonus. You're welcome.
Ok, the wait is OVER! I have in my hands the proverbial envelope and am about to spill the news on who will be receiving a prize from my first giveaway, made possible from the combined efforts of Eric Jerardi and House of Jules; or as I am now referring to it: The House of Jerardi! That has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? Oh, will you look at that? I said RING! Wow. What are the chances of something like that just slipping out of my mouth? Interesting.
So, while I was in the kitchen with Jerardi enjoying his ahem *charcuterie plate and all that comes along with it, The Random Number Generator got to work picking the winning numbers!
Click to enlarge. After taking my comments out of the mix, I put the remaining 61 in a document, numbered them in the exact order from the first comment to the last, and then left the rest up to random.org, which is a cold & emotion-less website that only cares about numbers, not how witty your comments were (and THEY WERE ALL WITTY, so I would have never been able to pick based on the humor scale, anyway)!
With the doubtful-someone-sexy-would-perform-in-Canada (and if that's the case, how does she explain Men Without Hats?) comment of, "I highly doubt someone of Sexypants Jerardi's good looks and talent would be interested in coming up to the Great White North, but wouldn't that be cool if he came here?!", Alex wins!
With the initially aggressive but then massively brilliant comment of, "Can I punch Spammon in the chest even though it's not St. Patty's Day? Seriously though, I had a great idea. Jerardi should do a House of Jules tour! (I know it's tough, but get your mind out of the gutter - I didn't mean literally to tour you!) Ohio, Chicago, Fort Worth, wherever-the-hell-in-Canada Alex is, Knoxville . . . You get the idea.", Stacey wins!
With the very personally revealing comment of, "Oh goodness. I'm so forgetful this morning. I'm glad he said he puts his hands down the wives' knickers and not their panties. Have I told you how much I hate the word panties? Probably not because why would you and I ever be talking about panties?", Bev (Sauntering Soul) wins!
Please e-mail me your addresses at casajules (at) gmail (dot) com. Prizes will be shipped on Friday.
This is not to say that the rest of you aren't winners, because we here at The House of Jerardi think you have some real potential. You can try your luck winning prizes of a different sort at the end of next week in my Pay It Forward contest. More details on that later!
*My thinly-veiled double entendre "charcuterie plate" remark above is from the best part of Jerardi's interview:
"Finally, the question I've been working toward all night! Your 3 passions in life are music, wine & food. Describe the best night all 3 of those coincided, and take it slow. I'm about to get comfortable."
"Ok, I come over to your house around 8. I have a bottle of Bollinger Champagne, a basket of French food and more wine. While we drink the Champagne, I put together a little charcuterie plate with country pate, foie gras, cornichons, cheese, Dijon, and a baguette. I pop the 2001 Cos d Estournel, and we stand in the kitchen, enjoying the simple French country fare. After all of that, I whip out my.......... guitar, and sing to you for about 20 minutes. Then we fornicate like bunnies."
