Do you live near New York City? Are you free Monday, December 5th? Do you want to go to the premiere of King Kong?

I know for sure that the answer to at least one of those questions is
yes. But they all have to be yes for you to win one of five pairs of
tickets I have for this once in a lifetime event. That’s right, five
lucky readers (and five of their friends) will have the chance to see
the movie at the massive premiere alongside the cast and Peter Jackson.

Who says CHUD isn’t great?

If you want to win this you have to be 18 or above, live in New York,
New Jersey or Connecticut, and be able to make it to the premiere on
time. Don’t enter this if you don’t think you can make it to the
premiere at 6PM (and you should be able to get there even earlier to
pick up your tickets). You can enter once per day. Winners will be
selected and contacted on December 1st.

I am making this easy for my tri-state Chewers. Just email me (, subject MUST be KONG PREMIERE. Any variations will be deleted) with the following info:

Your name
Your age
Your address
Your phone number
Your email address (I need this IN THE BODY OF THE EMAIL)

So what are you waiting for? Get cracking!
