We Have a Winner…

May 20th, 2010 · 1 Comment · By

We are happy to award Eric Wuestewald two tickets to the 5/31 Of Montreal show at The Jefferson. Eric sent us this commendable series of haikus:

A Series of Haikus for Of Montreal:

1. On Dancing
I, graduate of
an awful economy,
just want to funk out.

2. The Spectacle
I would also like
to cover myself in paint
and body glitter.

3. Furthermore,
Kevin Barnes is sexy.
He makes me want to love men
Even though I do not.

Yes, we are aware “Kevin Barnes is sexy” is actually a six syllable line but we did not think it supplied strong enough ground to disqualify Mr. Wuestewald since he wrote two additional haikus in proper form. In a close second place: Mr. Tim Skirven. He sent us this:

kevin barnes, shirtless
he is no equestrian
but he is a horse.

Third Place goes to Amanda Hare for this one:

‘Roo dehydration,
Missed the tranny spectacle.
A second chance, please?

And after the jump, you may peruse all of the entries we received. Thank you for participating! Have fun at the show, Eric!
