Usually we keep our contests a surprise, but we’re giving you a heads up on this one.
During the month of April will be featuring a contest with lots of great prizes from New Found Glory.
The south Florida-based punk band is teaming up with peta2 to give away an iPod uploaded with three songs from the band’s latest release Catalyst and 12 of their favorite songs by other artists, including some surprises like “Faithfully” by Journey, “Money Changes Everything” by Cyndi Lauper, and Phil Collins’ “Can’t Stop Loving You.” The Grand Prize winner will also receive an autographed Catalyst CD, autographed T-shirts, and a DVD of Troma’s “Tales From the Crapper,â€? featuring New Found Glory. Four first-prize winners and four second-prize winners will also receive merchandise. Keep an eye out for that one!
On the Wet Seal Front …
Eric and I held a protest in Billings, Montana this afternoon. Though we were alone for this demo, the media came out in full force – CBS and two of the local newspapers covered the event. Montana is really cold, and the Mountain Time Zone is still a little confusing, but today’s protest was a blast!


Also, here is a photo from Street Teamer Natasha Jahanbakhsh’s demo in Oviedo, Florida.


Letter to the Editor from Street Teamer Mitch Goldsmith.
Mitch had this letter printed in the Ann Arbor News:
Learn more about PETA’s anti-cruelty campaign
Last month marked the two-year anniversary of PETA’s Kentucky Fried Cruelty campaign, which has opened everyone’s eyes to the horrific ways in which chickens and other animals are treated in slaughter houses and factory farms.
More than 750 million chickens that are raised to be eaten by KFC customers are crammed into massive, over-populated, disgustingly filthy sheds, where each bird lives its short, miserable life in a space about the size of a single sheet of paper.
These poor chickens are all too often fully conscious when their throats are cut and then dropped into tanks of scalding hot water to remove their feathers.
I’m sure we all remember in July of 2004, when a PETA investigation into a KFC slaughter house in Moorefield, W.Va., found employees stomping on chickens and violently slamming them against the floors and walls. They also were caught on video ripping chickens beaks and heads off and squeezing their bodies so violently that the animals expelled feces.
I urge each and everyone who reads this to speak up for those who can’t. Learn more about what happens behind KFC’s closed doors at

    I'm a therian /otherkin wolf lycanthrope that sees this lifetime in this body as a punishment that the god and goddess has bestowed upon me, but I try my best to do good to all living beings except usually humans which I hate and detest with all my being.
