Jim's talk at this year's SXSW.
As you may or may not be aware, we send out Infrequent Mailings every so often. They usually include bits of news and other stuff that doesn't always fit on the site. They always include a contest and/or a special offer on something. This was part of yesterday's missive, so the people on the list have had a 24-hour head start, so get busy. Sign up (below and to the right) to get this sort of stuff first. Just give us your email address. We won't ever abuse the privilege.
Find all these things and send us an email with links. It's an online scavenger hunt. Complete the assignment by Friday June 23rd and we'll pick the two most inventive submissions and send them one of pretty much everything we have. Send your email to info at coudal dot com and include "Ah Ha!" in the subject line. Send links NOT images, we want to see the stuff in context. Creativity and speed will count as tie-breakers and the decision of the judges is final.
We've posted selected answers from a variety of entries to the questions below. Thanks to everyone who participated. There were a lot of complete lists submitted and many of them came in very quickly, so we picked our favorites, threw them in a hat and randomly selected Jill Brassil and Paul McAleer as our winners. Congratulations. You'll hear from them next month when they share guest-editing duties for Fresh Signals.
A chance to be our Fresh Signals Guest Editor
A Field-Tested Poster and Book
A Copy Goes Here DVD and Tee
A Pixies disc-set from Tokyo
Dead Can Dance's live Selections From North America
A Jewelboxing 20pack of Kings
Assorted other stuff.
BTW: Please stop sending in Booking Bands entries. At this point we've heard them all.
NOTE: We received a fair number of complete lists. But there's room to knock them out of contention. For example, a surprising number of people have answered request #8 with the same exact band photo. It's a nice one to be sure but if it were us we'd dig a little deeper into the search results and try to zig while everyone else is zagging. Also to Coop. How do you figure that "Buddy" is an appropriate name for a porn star. (See #2) Are we missing something?
NOTE 2: The winners will be announced Wednesday, June 28th around lunch time.

We hated the options available for custom packaging DVDs and CDs so we created a brand that gives creative professionals and hobbyists the tools to make great stuff. Here's a bit from the latest Jewelboxing weblog entry:
"Clients are always stunned at the result, almost to the point of being speechless, shocked that their faces are so artfully placed on a professional DVD cover. I couldn't be happier with Jewelboxing and I think I can say the same thing for my clients as well." Read the entire post.
