MEN, the eponymous (lol) name of a group with JD SAMSON innit (from Le Tigre fame), have a contest for a pass to their show. Take your picture, make in reverse not really though, and show in images "who you are to feel so free." At the worst, JD will have seen your face, and at best, you get to see the show and maybe be the band's new friend. And yes, your obsession with BEST OF, TOP TEN OF 2010 etc means I'm incduing them in the bestest of the year catergory. Enter contest here.
