Name That Tune, Mr. Spock!

Name That Tune, Mr. Spock! Finding two of the same unforeseeable thing online entirely by accident raises an eyebrow. Can you name all the tunes in Glenn McDonald's Audiotests or the equivalent faux-Survivor task by Ron Yeany et al.? (The latter links directly to an MP3 file. See contest page.) ¶ Also, Glenn (ibid.) has an hilarious photo album. And who can explain the reference in the title of this posting?

I'll be giving $50 to some Metafilter user

I'll be giving $50 to some Metafilter user (or group of users). The winner will be the person who links to the item that I consider to be "coolest." I set the bar here: in order to win, your item must be at least as cool as this, otherwise, I will declare myself the winner.

Aside from the increased size of the prize (the result of a few users who chipped in to the collection I took up), all other rules are identical to those of last year's Metafilter $30 Giveaway.

I will make my decision at 5 pm Friday, Chicago time.

At first I found Junkyard Wars (imported) and thought it was the funniest show on TV. Then I found Iron Chef (also imported) and it was even better. I got hooked. Now I've found BattleBots (homegrown! Buy American!), and I have to wonder if TV has any more pleasant surprises for me. As long as I stay away from the big networks I seem to do fine.

Stacy sues Survivor.

Stacy sues Survivor. She claims that producer Mark Burnett urged Dirk and Sean to vote against her rather than against Rudy, in hopes that the last older contestant would not be booted.

Bird On A Wire's 2nd Annual National Film Registry Contest

Bird On A Wire's 2nd Annual National Film Registry Contest is on! Predict which films you think will be added to the National Film Registry this year, and you could win prizes! "The National Film Registry is a collection of American movies which, because of their artistic, historical, or cutural significance, have been deemed worthy of preservation." Eligible movies are American-made, over 10 years old, and not already on the list (the criteria for the list itself).

In the event of a tie, Bird on a Wire will pick a winner by whim, so as long as you choose eligible films, you have a good chance of winning. Pick up to 25 films; deadline for submissions is December 25. The NFR announces its selections on December 27.

Post and discuss your entries here!

If there's ever been a weirder contest prize than this one,

If there's ever been a weirder contest prize than this one, I've never heard of it. Or a more offensive one, actually. I wonder how many women will enter without realizing they've done so?

The Fireland.com Blind Dialog contest.

The Fireland.com Blind Dialog contest. This is a hilarious contest. And how can you resist putting an entry in, when the grand prize is a Lego Ninja Fire Fortress?

TiVos are raining from the sky!

TiVos are raining from the sky! Jason Kottke won, so I entered. I won, and while my piece was obviously a piece of literary genius, it wasn't *that* good. I think we need to do a scientific study -- who can write the stupidest "Why I Want a TiVo" essay and still win?
