Win The 2011 Freddy In Space Christmas Stocking!!

Photobucket

If I could send each and every one of you reading this right now a Christmas gift to show my appreciation for you continually reading and somehow enjoying my daily stupidity believe me, I totally would. But it's simply not in my budget to do so, which I guess is a good thing because it means more than five people come around these parts each day. It's actually six these days, for the record.

So though I can't send out a gift to everyone who reads this here blog, i've drunkenly put something special together over the course of the past couple nights, which I can at least award to one of you. Better than nothing, right?

What i've concocted is the first annual Freddy In Space Christmas stocking, a collection of goodies i've found around my house and stuffed into a $1 stocking from Target, which I had Jen crudely glue and glitter a commemorative label onto. Lucky for you guys and gals, I have some pretty cool shit lying around my house, as you'll soon see.

If you should choose to enter this giveaway, here's what you will win, all housed inside the very special one of a kind Freddy In Space 2011 Christmas stocking that has left my kitchen and my cats covered in stripper glitter. Only for you folks, only for you.

Photobucket
The heartwarming dollar store children's picture book Sasquatch!, which tells the tale of an old bearded prospector who straps monster boots to his feet and makes giant snowprints in the mountains that convince the mountain folk that Sasquatch has been roaming around the area. Oops, totally spoiled that one.

Photobucket
A one of a kind drunken drawing of Krampus, the mythical Alpine creature that follows Santa along on his Christmas journey, collecting the bad boys and girls and slaughtering and eating them. As you can see, I have no artistic talent, and it only gets worse after a few adult beverages.

Photobucket
An Alfred Hitchcock doll, handmade by artist Bob Dix. I bought a bunch of these from Bob with the hopes of selling them, but have ended up giving them away to friends in the wake of nobody buying them like I expected them to. I love these things and i'm glad i've been able to spread them around, whether i've made any money or not. Truth be told, it was never about making any money so much as it was sharing an artist's work that I myself am a fan of.

Photobucket
An Ultimate Warrior trading card (now that's horrifying!), Trick 'r Treat holographic coaster, Low Budget Pictures Ernest sticker that suggests Ernest watches LBP's films while rotting in hell & Cult Collectibles' Beyond trading card, exclusive to their Beyond bobblehead set.

Photobucket
Just add water fun; an eyeball that turns into a zombie monster & a severed foot that turns into ... a bigger wetter severed foot. Shit morphing into other bigger shit when placed in water; if that aint the American dream, then my whole life has been a lie.

Photobucket
Puppet Master 1-3 on DVD! Already had the full Puppet Master set when a co-worker bought me this collection last year and i'd rather re-gift it than have it rot away and collect dust on my self, next to its superior brethren. My cat totally whisker-bombed this shot.

Photobucket
Issue #35 of Creepy Magazine, featuring the tale of a Nazi scientist who creates a legion of zombie warriors!

Photobucket
Wouldn't be a stocking without candy and it wouldn't be a Freddy In Space stocking without sugary bones, a gummy skeleton, wax vampire teeth & blue cotton candy Edward Cullen hair.

Photobucket
Scented Dracula marker, Great Pumpkin hot chocolate and Bath & Body Works Halloween clearance hand sanitizer. Clean hands, a good smelling marker and tasty hot cocoa ... what more do ya need?!

Photobucket
A Hostel action figure, with swappable arms and weapons. This is another thing I bought a whole bunch of with the hopes of selling a few years back. In case you couldn't tell, I suck when it comes to selling things. Thankfully, I love to give things away for free.

Photobucket
The recently released Straw Dogs book, sent to me as an advanced reader copy that I never reviewed or even read, and the epic children's book Gargoyles Don't Drive School Buses, which teaches you that ... gargoyles don't drive school buses. Valuable life lesson, kids.

Photobucket
A VHS copy of the Linda Blair lesbian rape classic Born Innocent, a London 1888 Evil Dead 2 pin, a Trash Pack figurine & a pack of vintage Jaws 2 trading cards, complete with rock hard and super sharp stick of 70's gum!

Photobucket
Satan's Sideshow barf bag and a Thing remake cup ... which is a fitting pairing being that a viewing of The Thing remake will require a barf bag. Cause ... it sucks so much that it'll make you sick. Fact.

And that about wraps her up. If I find anything else lying around, i'll throw it in before I send this baby out but for now, this is all i've got. To enter to win the 2011 Freddy In Space Christmas stocking, all you've gotta do is leave a comment below with your e-mail address and the title of your favorite Freddy In Space post of 2011, just so I know that you're a regular reader ... or at least so that I can see that you're crafty enough to look through the archives and pretend you're an avid reader. That's good enough for me. Entries will be accepted until midnight next Saturday morning, December 17th, which will give me enough time to get this out to you by Christmas. Good luck to all and from the bottom of my heart, thank you for reading and supporting my oftentimes drunken ramblings. You keep reading, i'll keep writing!!

That cenobite contest was a lot of fun. One of the more original contests and one of the few where looking at the entries was cooler then the prize ( and better then the shit-tastic hellraiser movie which inspired the contest in the first place. )

Happy Holidays, man.

'The Muppets Meet Horror: 6 Great Mashups!' I was one of the faithful that watched The Muppets every time it was on. Animal was always my favorite. I loved the 'House of 1000 Muppets' mashup. I laughed watching it. theshapemm@gmail.com

The barf bag reminds me of the July blog 'I Think I'm Gonna Be Sick: Horror Promo Bags!'

Def so cool seeing the bags that I never knew existed. Would be nice to leave Santa one when I poison his fuckin' Oreos!

I loved the segment about the favorite posters of this year. Some of them were great even if the film was bad. Great art work.

(minus the spaces)

My favorite entry is:
Fright Rags Tours: Lady in White Filming Locations!

My reasoning is because a) I flippin' love filming location stuff, seeing the whole then and now perspectives. b) because it was with the flippin' Fright-Rags crew! Mega awesomeness all in one entry. :D Also it's an October entry so since I'm a total Halloweenie...perfection. :0)

Thanks for the contest opportunity. That stocking is sweetness in a sock. It's far cooler than the Lotto tickets, 2012 calendar and random candy I'll receive in my stocking, haha.

Good luck to everyone though.

philip said...

I loved the write up about the favorite movie posters of this year. Great art work even if the film was not great. Also I loved the films that were released over seas and not here.

I hope this counts, as it wasn't actually a blog post, but a facebook post. My favorite was when you shared my post "My Prophecy: Video Stores Will Rise From The Grave" and said "I agree with this article 100% (or something close to that)" Since I've been a reader of yours for quite a while, it made me extremely happy to know that you check out my blog too.

Well, I watched and reviewed Halloween: H20 and Resurrection this year, so I appreciated "The Most Infuriating Use CGI In Horror History?" most.

Guts and Grog Reviews said...

The "10 things I wish were April Fools Jokes." I agreed with everyone of those. You have had plenty more I have loved but I just love the idea behind that and I am insane for lists.

Gabe LaPeer said...

Because I'm a little biased, my favorite has to be the first that turned me on to Freddy in Space. It just so happens to be one about my art. It meant a huge deal to me when you posted about my Karbonite Killers series, especially the Freddy frozen in Carbonite. I've been following ever since. Thank you. - Gabe from Homemade Horror.
P. S. I hope to get back into the game next year with more figures and Karbonite pieces!!

My favorite post of 2011 was the "The Create a Cenobite Challenge!!", because I hadn't played with Photoshop in a long while, and it was fun for me to create something horrific from scratch. Hope you decide to do another cool contest like that next year!

My favorite is the article about the custom horror action figures that should be massed produced. I am huge collector of horror action figures and any articles that deal with collectibles always tugs at my heart strings. You did another awhile back about figures that never came out which is another favorite. Keep up the great work and have a great holiday.

Caffeinated Joe said...

I am staying out of the contest, let someone who really wants the loot to win (and quite a generous haul you are offering!).

But I wanted to say my favorite post might be the one with the Halloween costumes that you saw on your Facebook page. Love the Sam one, especially!

Good luck to those in the running!

Dave said...

My favorite post of this year that immediately comes to mind is the one you made about the Oh Lantern pumpkins. Not only did I have that very same pumpkin that you featured growing up, I had actually searched around online a year or so ago to find out what the name of it was, too (I think a search on ebay for "vintage foam pumkpkin" or something like that turned it up). Anyway, I remember being excited reading that post that I would be able to tell you what it was, but someone beat me to it!

I also always enjoy your summaries of the horror conventions.

Sarah Queen said...

Well, you know that I am an avid reader. This is the only blog I follow religiously! So, I'd have to say one of my favorite posts of the past year is the one about all the different Amityville projects coming out. I'm a big amityville fan, and I look forward to devouring each new film. (I also liked your reviews of the old ones, lol)

Wow.... that is a prize worthy of the worlds largest junk drawer... Thankfully for me I will not be competing as this is my first post here I have read.... though I can tell it will be the first of so many!!!
P.S. Did you really do a post on the insides of Santa? Cause if you did...... thats freekin genius!

Twihards was one that I (unfortunately) can't forget. That replica of her womb and devil baby was so bad.

Tough to choose, and really shouldn't spend more time at my desk sifting through a year's worth of posts, so I'll go with a fairly recent that really resonated with me: "My Favorite Dick Smith Makeup Job." Like you, for most of my life I thought that Max von Sydow actually was as old as he appeared in THE EXORCIST, and was amazed to find out he was in old-age makeup. I agree -- the most convincing, flawless transforming makeup job I've ever seen.

Happy Horrordays!

My favorite post was "11 More Incredible Fan Made Posters". I remember being a little kid, going to Blockbuster, and investigating the front and back of every Horror movie in the aisle. This post reminded me of that. Plus, I'd put up that Jaws, Nightmare on Elm Street 3, or The Shining poster in my room any day!

Favourite post: the 10 cutout halloween masks.

Simply because its halloween, and everyone should love halloween. And masks, cos let's face it, you can put almost anything on your face and get away with it by calling it 'a mask' :p. Plus, as soon as halloweens over its not long till christmas. So its win win! Here's hoping I win :D
