The Motel/Red Doors DVD Giveaway: Talk Smack About Your Momma
Today is a landmark day in indie Asian American film--not only is Mike Kang's The Motel out on DVD, but today marks the release of Georgia Lee's Red Doors on DVD as well. While very different, both films tell stories that revolve around issues of family, identity, and the parent-child relationship.
In celebration of these two films, Rice Daddies has teamed up with Kimchi Mamas for a special contest giveaway. To win one of five super prize packs that includes one copy of The Motel DVD and a poster signed by its cast and one copy of Red Doors with accompanying poster, this is what you do:
Since we're always talking dad stuff here, we're gonna switch things up a bit. In the comments to this post, tell us your funniest story about your mom. One entry per person, please--but you can go over to Kimchi Mamas and tell your funniest story about your dad there for a chance at one of 5 identical prize packs.
You have from now until midnight PST this Friday night to enter both contests. (Make sure you give us your e-mail in the comment form.) Winners will be chosen via random drawing this weekend (probably by my daughter pulling names out of a hat, or a bag, or a box, or some other toy strewn across my living room floor), and no, you can't win at both sites. We'll announce the winners on Monday, along with a little something else....
See, to make things a little more interesting, there's a contest within this contest. Between the Rice Daddies and the Kimchi Mamas, whichever site has the most entries is the winner. What happens to the loser? The losing blogteam has to supply three of its contributors to write their most embarassing parenting moment for publication on the winners' site. So, since I know you wanna see City Mama or Eliaday spill the beans right here on Rice Daddies, y'all better get crackalackin'!
Special thanks to Michael at Blanc de Chine films and Deborah at Palm Pictures for making this contest possible!
