LIEF BOOKS IMAGE MACRO CONTEST
This fire is burning out of control. Everybody wants the biggest piece of James Ganas. See him everywhere. I drive to work. On the side of the road is James Ganas’ face. When I see it I tell my carpool buddies ‘I know that guy’. They usually say ‘Shut up and drive you damn hipster’. At this point I’m okay with that. My coworkers subsist on cottage cheese and diet coke. I subsist on the internet. Think my diet is way healthier.
James Ganas recently made a rare ‘online’ appearance on Steve Roggenbuck’s popular ‘Illuminati Power Hour’. I wonder how long I can continue covering the Illuminati Power Hour. Online conspiracy theorists know my deal. They are linking my blog. It is only a matter of time before I am discovered. Hope the Illuminati accept me into their ranks so I may hide from these IRL dwellers. IRLers never understood the internet anyway. How can one explain the internet to someone who has never tweeted? Someone who has never liked a Facebook status has not really lived.
This is a contest of wits, of relevancy, and of pure genius. Steve Roggenbuck hosts a decent amount of contests. Easily this surpasses any contest Steve has ever held. Those who won before cannot imagine the sheer relevancy packed into this contest. When the winner wins this contest they win at LIEF! Imagine one contest that can turn your entire LIEF around. Picture it. Now look at this contest. Is there any difference between the two? I didn’t think so.
What does this contest ask? The demands are simple: create an image macro from one of the lines of James Gana’s best-viewing book. Send it to Steve Roggenbuck’s disused Gmail account. While many writers have created entire works of art from Gchat conversations Steve goes further. He is way out there. Steve Roggenbuck lives in the digital future. When you meet Steve Roggenbuck IRL you meet his online persona. They are one in the same. His online persona and offline persona have fused into one. The Spice Girls predicted this with their prophetic song ‘When two become one’ which dealt with the virtual and real self. Most thought it was about love. Most were fools.
Submit to the contest soon. Hardly any time is left. Only one blog cycle exists before the contest is over. This very Friday it ends, and with it ends any chance at online relevance. Help out Steve, help out James, but, most importantly help out yourself. I want you to succeed. I care so deeply about you. Do this for you but also a little for me. As an added bonus for the contest I will write a blog post of at least 400 words for the winner. Note most of the post will be fictitious. Imagine that! Get working.
