Contest #1 – Your Favorite Snowy Sunday Episodes
Alas, I wanted this post to also include the season ending episode of Snowy Sunday. But there were a few things preventing me from completing it. [for those of you that follow me on Twitter, you already know] If you can wait just a little bit longer [don’t worry, I won’t delay it a whole week like last time], it will be worth it.
In the meantime, I’d like to announce the first Banal Leakage Blogoversary Celebration giveaway. As with the rules of my previous giveaway I did for my 100 Posts Celebration, it’s easy to enter.
Just leave a comment with your three (that’s 3) favorite episodes of Snowy Sunday. This may require you re-watch all of the episodes, or you can just randomly pick three numbers between 1 and 16. Or maybe you already know what your favorite episodes are. Or you can wait and vote until the season ending episode of Snowy Sunday comes out [it will be Episode #17]. You have until Saturday April 18th at 11:59pm PDT to enter, when I will pick three (3) random winners. So no worries on time. No reason to rush the vote.
What’s that? You couldn’t find three favorites? Impossible, I say. But hey, It’s all good. Just list two or even one if you only have a single favorite. Just make sure to leave a comment with the episode(s).
What’s the prize?
I will pick three (3) winners, who will each get a $10 iTunes gift card. Not much, but hey, it will get you an album [at least most of one, anyway] or nine songs or a movie or, hell, whatever you can get for $10.
My Three Favorites
Now that I’ve asked you for your favorite Snowy Sunday episodes, I will share mine. Because, hey, I created them, I can have favorites, too.
*** #3 ***
Snowy Sunday #01
– I liked this one for several reasons, including it was one my daughter and I did together. And I love all things Jackass and it was just plain fun to do.

Snowy Sunday #06
– For some reason, the music and the type of snowy event I was filming just melded together very well. Score on for the Bee Gee’s

Snowy Sunday #08
– I had so much fun sledding that day. It was fucking cold here that morning, too [it was barely 10 degrees]. People driving by and seeing a crazy guy with a camera, sledding down this hill multiple times. No apologies. Plus, being able to fit a Guns N Roses song into one of my videos made this the first place winner in my book.

The contest has ended. I will announce the winners soon.
My three faves are the one you did with your daughter, the claymation one, and the one with the melting snowman. Should I not be lazy and actually go find the numbers? 😉
#15, #4, and #10 in that order (with the first being my fave on down). Nothing against the real, live you, but you did such a good job with those stop-motion bits that I can’t not love them first.
Crap – I guess I’ll have to come back when I have to to review my favorites! I know which ones I’d pick, but I don’t know the numbers. Based on Kapgar’s comment, though, I am guessing we are along the same thoughts…
I like the one where you wear the scarf that Reba gave you for Christmas!!!
Woah tough decisions!
Okay I choose:
8: Sledding was brilliant!
11: That face you make kills me every time.
13: Kent Brockman!!!
I’m lucky if I can remember what TV show I watched last night. I can pretty much guarantee I don’t remember most of your Snowy Sundays. But, please don’t take it personally. I just have a terrible memory. And am entirely too lazy to go back and re-watch all of them. (Hey, at least I’m honest!) May the prize go to a much better commenter than me. =)
The first one will always be my favorite, because I remember being taken aback at just what a great idea it was! If an idea is THAT good, I should have been the one to think of it! I did enjoy the follow-ups as well, but that first one…
The ones I’ve loved I remember (I think) without watching them all again (just not the episode number). The first claymation is my fave, then the snowman melting one. Then the sledding.
kilax – It’s all good, Kim. I know which ones you are referring to.
kapgar – How did I know those would be your favorites. Thank you.
sybil law – Following Kapgar’s favorites is a good call.
breakaway9 – That would be my favorite. Cool.
penelope – Yeah for sledding! You liked that face, huh. And I did like that news story episode, too.
nilsa – It’s all good, Nilsa. Hey, with 16 of these videos, there’s a lot here. But I know where your heart lies (Scooter Sunday)
dave2 – Thanks, Dave. Very cool to hear I didn’t steal one of your ideas.
kevin – The claymation episodes were a hit with both Kevins. Hmmmm…
Oh, this has been a hard decision for me, I love them all. But I’m gonna go with #1, #15 and #8. I loved the poor little snowman, all that work paid off. It was quite moving! They’re all so much fun. Can’t wait for Scooter Sunday 😀 Now, back to work with me!
In no particular order, I choose 4, 9 and 13. OK, maybe that’s numeric order. I didn’t re-watch them all, so it’s possible that I would have different favorites if I had, but these were definitely memorable ones for me, due in no small part to your creativity being so well displayed.
I’m about to buy “Under the Bridge” after re-watching #4 and realizing that I don’t own that song. Dang it, have to update credit card info in iTunes when I get home….
catherine – Why thank you. Great choices. #15 seems to be pretty popular.
ren – Thank you, Ren. Almost forgot about #9. And if the WMG freaks don’t see that promotion works in selling music, I don’t know what to say. Way cool.
I am such a sucka for claymation!!!
btw, none of the videos work any more, at least not for me. They all say “sorry, this video is temporarily unavailable.”.
sybil law – Nice list, but I don’t remember doing a Snowy Sunday #20 or #27. Unless you are looking into the future for next season. And if that’s the case, you need to tell me what the episodes are about… *grin*
whall – Must have been a glitch since I can see all of them. You are talking about Vimeo, right? YouTube seems to be all there, too (with the exception of the few videos that WMG removed the audio from)
