The "Angrier Than Thou" contest
Win free CD's by being a jerk
by Dan Strohl
In response to Atomic Dan's
me, chiding me for not being angry enough and claiming to be the
original Angry Dan, The Shrubbery wants to see just how many punks out
there think they're angrier than me.
So we're gonna hold a contest.
If you think you can be more pessimistic, "pseudo-intellectual" or
intelligently inflammatory than me, you'll get some sort of prize (actually, two CD's
from CDNow--you pick one and Dan will pick the other for you) and we
might even think about putting your column in the Shrub. Not like we've
got people beating down our doors to do that anyway.
So this is your chance, Atomic Dan and all other hot-mouthed critics,
to show us what you've got. And this isn't gonna be a bash-on-Angry-Dan
contest. The column should be on a serious topic; pretty much any topic
will do. If you think you're up to the challenge, send in your pieces (and the name
of the CD you want) to
before June 15. The judges will be you, the public, and the fine editors
of The Shrubbery. If you're not up to the challenge, sit in front of
your computers and whine. We'll make fun of you.
