CONTEST RIGHT NOW -- Check the link below on the right to see who
won the last contest. New contests will be announced via the official
site's discussion forum and the genesis-trades mailing list on Yahoo!
This is the part where you get to compete against
fellow Genesis Freaks for some free bootlegs. First, a few guidelines:

winning entries of the past
If you are chosen as the winner, you get to pick any five
bootlegs from my collection (audio or video). My list of recordings
can be found by clicking on the Live Shows button above. From there,
you can reach the "short list," which will give you a
quick overview of all of my Genesis non-compilation recordings,
audio and video (though any non-official-release item listed on
the site is eligible as a prize choice). There are also links to
the detailed tour pages, compilations page, Genesis-related recordings,
etc., which include track lists, track times, dates, venues, quality
ratings, and extensive comments.
There will also be a number of runners-up chosen (the number
will vary depending on how many prizes I feel like giving out and
how many good contest entries there are), who will get to choose
only one bootleg from my list (runners-up may also receive some
bonus discs if they are very lucky).
The winners and runners-up will also get their winning entries
posted on this site for all to see, after the contest is over (you
should be able to reach some by clicking on "View winning entries
of the past" above).
The aim of this contest is to make me laugh. Below you will see
a Genesis-related picture. You must provide for it a humorous caption.
That's it for the rules! The contestant with the most humorous caption
for the picture (as judged by me) will win. (For examples of Genesis-related
picture captions that I found amusing, please refer to the Picture
Caption Personality Test, which can be reached by clicking the Caption
Test button above. Not surprisingly, all of those picture captions
were written by me.)
HOW TO ENTER:
To enter the contest, you need merely email me with your humorous
caption by clicking here.
Please include your name in the email, and please make it clear
that you are sending me an entry for this contest (write "Genesis
Contest" in the subject line, or some such). As for how
many times you can enter: there is no way for me to stop you from
emailing as many different captions as you can think of, but I urge
you to stick to as few as possible. Those who deluge me with ideas
and clog my inbox will have a very slim chance of winning. However,
I will totally understand if you write me a caption, and then afterwards
in the middle of the night wake up having thought of one that's
really much better than your first, and that you must send me right
WHO CAN ENTER:
Any Genesis fan may enter, but I would prefer those newer to the
bootleg scene, the burnerless, and those particularly desperate
for boots (you know who you are). If you feel you don't fall into
this category and don't feel right entering the contest, but still
want some of my bootlegs, maybe we can trade
WHEN IS IT
OVER? In the past, the contest has only lasted a little
more than 24 hours, but it depends on the flow of entries and the
percentage of them that I find funny. When it is over I
will say so on this page, and on whatever discussion forums, chat
rooms, and/or mailing lists in which I originally mentioned it.
At the same time, I will also (of course) notify the grand prize
winner and any runners-up via email that they have won, and ask
for their addresses and their bootleg choices so that I can send
their prizes off to them as quickly as possible.
YOUR CAPTION HERE
I await your entries. Good luck!
