We have some good news and bad news. As of a few days ago we received a weighty tome of a letter from a certain large toy manufacturer named Hasbro in relation to our blog name and intellectual property rights. Sadly, just like many large multinational corporations have done to others, they are trying to shut us down and void our two years of hard work.
As you know we strive to mould a better understanding of today’s ever growing music scene, we don’t make malleable play stuff for children. We do encourage creativity in all young minds – our end product is sonic and aural. We would have never imagined it would be confused with a child’s play toy.
We are so proud of the following we have gained, the nights we’ve had and the overall journey over the past few years. Whilst these events would deter a lesser entity, we don’t give up that easily. The next phase of the journey is underway and we look forward to bringing you along for the ride.
The first phase in this journey is our colossal re-branding. We would like to invite you – our devoted followers and the outreaching online music community – to actively participate in this re-branding. To thank you for your loyal support. We’re launching an online competition to re-name our beloved collective.
To celebrate this grand reinvention, we want YOU to come up with as many names as possible, whilst sharing and spreading the word. We want to get everyone involved, so whatever name you come up with, whether it be crazy or just plain and simple, let us know! You can Facebook, Tweet, and Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The person with the winning name will receive several prizes, with the main prize being announced on the 21st of June.
The prizes that we have so far are:
- Five signed Foreign Beggars CDs for the winner and the four runners-up.
- Free T-shirts with the new logo printed on them
- Free guestlist to our launch night
- The opportunity to become a contributor to the revamped site
Thank you for your continuous support! Much love from the Playdoh team.
