It's Saturday.... The... 13th!! Um, that doesn't work..
As I mentioned in The 2013 Holidaze Halloween Countdown Intro, I'll be holding my first contest this Halloween season. Well, if you're following me on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, they you already know that this contest has already begun!! That's right, up for grabs is an NECA Mego NES 8-Bit Jason figure!! If you're unfamiliar with 8-Bit Jason Voorhees, here's a bit of a refresher. Remember when Friday the 13th was released on Nintendo? Remember that weird color combination creators used for Jason's likeness? It was a contrast between turquoise and purple, everything that Jason wasn't in the feature films, and wasn't much to talk about... until last year. When NECA released a SDCC exclusive Jason figure, featured in his NES colors, the geeky world went wild. Why was this now so popular? I honestly couldn't tell you. There's just something about nostalgia that sparks interest and reignites our childhood into a frenzy. All of a sudden, Jason Voorhees in blue and purple was a hot commodity and sales went through the roof. Unfortunately, I never did track down the original SDCC exclusive, but NECA recently released a different, even-better, NES 8-Bit Jason in Mego form. He's bigger, cooler, and could totally be yours! How do you win NES Jason? It's easy!

So why am I doing this? Well, first of all, I want to pay it forward. When I reached out to Jasen Anthony, the voice over recording artist who lent his voice to my Countdown Intro, he agreed to do it for free as long as I agreed to pay it forward. Not only was that extremely kind of him, but this contest was the least I could do. Secondly, the more you all share my links, the more people I reach in an attempt to share the Halloween countdown. Look, I don't make a dime off of The Holidaze. My stats are nowhere near making a profit, but it's not about that. I simply want to share my love of Halloween, Horror, Art, and Nostalgia with as many like-minded people as possible. To goal is to create more interaction and, chances are, if you like the 8-Bit Jason, you'll probably like The Holidaze, too! So I welcome you to enter the contest, spread awareness, and share in the extravaganza!!
