The Radical Uprise Giveaway: CHOMSKY For Beginners.


It’s been a while.  (;  Like I stated a few posts ago, I’m overwhelmed by life right now, so I’ve been a little MIA from the site.  My three week hiatus isn’t going to help the matter, but I’m hoping I’ll be somewhat active during my time out of town.  (;  You don’t want to hear excuses, do you?  You just want free shit, right?

Let’s get to it.  Today I’m going to be giving away CHOMSKY For Beginners.  While it just brushes the surface of what Noam Chomsky is about, it’s a great starter book if you’re interested in his work and are looking for a quick history brief of where he came from and what he’s known for.  It’s an extremely easy read, with a “comic book” style.  I think I brushed through it in a day when I read it.

No purchase necessary.  No reblogging, retweeting or sharing with friends.  No need to pay for shipping.  What do you need to do?

  • Comment this post. That’s all you have to do.  No amount of begging will up your chances, as the drawing will be 100% randomly generated.  Be sure to include your e-mail address so I can contact the winner and get your mailing address.
  • Pass it on. It would be super rad if you came back to the original article and contacted another people who commented and ship it off to them, but it’s your choice, really.  Just keep it going.  Try to finish the book within a month and give it away.

Comment on this article for your chance to win. A winner will be chosen and announced on Tuesday.  Deadline to comment: MONDAY, July 18 2011.

Sorry, international buddies – this contest is only available to United States and Canada folks at this time, due to shipping costs.  I still love ya! xx



The Radical Uprise Giveway.


It’s that time.  Are you ready?  Free stuff rules.

For those of you who don’t know, Dr. Bronner’s makes my favorite soaps.  They are simple, basic, fabulous and refreshing – AND (if I may add) their labels can be quite the read if you’re in the bathroom for a while taking care of …er… business.

I started out using the liquid peppermint, but can’t use it in the winter.  It’s a great soap, but the peppermint made me too cold, you see.  It almost felt like I was washing my body in mouth wash – in a good way, of course.  So, winter rolled around and I purchased their almond soap.  I bought the largest bottle, so I’ve still got a ways to go before I run out.  However, I have several (and by several I mean a couple hundred) bars of Dr. Bronner’s peppermint soap bars, and figured since the weather is warming up, it would be a good time to start giving them away.

What do I love about Dr. Bronner’s?  It’s 100% vegan.  No animal testing.  No detergents.  I can pronounce everything on the label.  It just basically rules.

How the giveaway works:  Comment this article.  No reblogging.  No spamming your friends.  No tweeting.  Just comment.  How about you comment with five things that make you feel refreshed?  This should set the mood, eh?  I’ll even start:

  • Chugging a huge glass of ice water.
  • Long full body massages.
  • A good night’s sleep.
  • Meditation.
  • Diving into a cold pool on a hot summer’s day.
What about you?  What makes you feel refreshed?  Comment with five things, and you’ll have a chance to win some of this refreshing soap!  ONE winner will be chosen at random.

What you win*:  A small flat rate box stuffed with as many bars as I can squeeze in.  You should be set for a few months (or maybe even a good year or two) on soap.

A winner will be chosen on Friday.  The last day to comment is Thursday.

*PLEASE NOTE:  This particular giveaway is for US residents only (due to international rates).  Please make sure you comment with a valid e-mail address. 

Good  luck!
