I'm a loser baby


It seemed in the last iTunes/Pepsi promotion, I couldn't lose. Every cap I picked up was a winner and it was great. This time around, I'm not getting much love. Today, I finally won a song. I am now 1 for 8. That's loser numbers since the odds are 1 in 3. I realize I really don't have much to complain about yet, but this is definitely a different experience from the last time.

Now, honestly, the only reason I wanted to put this post up is so that I could use this Regis photo that I've been meaning to use for quite some time. Where did that photo come from you ask? Well, a couple of years (?) ago, ABC allowed you to play along with the "Who wants to be a millionaire" show. This was when it was still cool to watch that show :) Anyway, I would play online with this interactive client they had and they would put stills from the show in a window. One question involved the "loser sign" and Regis felt the need to act it out. The stills in the client were usually quite boring, but someone apparently had a sense of humor and put the cap of Regis making that sign in the display for about 20 seconds. I was lucky enough to grab a copy of it and it still makes me laugh every time I look at it.

I'm not doing too bad this time around:

2 losers
5 tunes
2 BOGO caps

Maybe I'm offsetting your losing ones.

Despite my loathing of Regis, I love that picture!
