Webomatica DVD Give Away #1

March 19, 2008

I keep having to remind myself my personal promise to return most of my ad revenue to readers (this blog is a hobby, not a business), so here we go with another contest of sorts.

This one is inspired by the digitization of my entire DVD library for use with the Apple TV. As a result, I now have a stack of DVDs I no longer need. So over the next few weeks, until the DVDs run out, I’m just going to give some away. But with a few rules to make it a bit more fun.

Basically I’ll describe a scene, and if you can guess the title you win. I’ll contact you via email to get your mailing address and I’ll send you the slightly used DVD of the movie described.

Mystery Movie #1

This is one of my favorite flicks. One truly funny moment is when John Cusack, the puppeteer, tries to guess the name of Catherine Keener’s character, Maxine. He has no way of knowing, so he tries every vowel imaginable and watches her reaction to guess her name. It ends up sounding like: BarrrRuuu– BellllLuuuu– Lllll– Carolllll– Taaaa-Sharrr— SusaaannnEmmmmilllly— Marr– laaarr– Maax…ine–M-M-M–Maxine?

Yeah, this is supposed to be rather easy. Fire away with your guesses of this movie’s title in the comments below, and make sure you leave a valid email address.


  1. Is it Being John Malakovic? I seem to remember that in it…

    I have the movie, so I don’t want to be entered in the draw :)

    Benjamin’s comment was stuck in moderation, but he had the earliest time stamp. I believe we have a winner.

    Engtech that is very fair of you :)

    More to come, so stay tuned!

  5. Dave says:

    Congrats to the winner.

    Jase, I hope you are at least using a portion of the adsense revenue to cover your server costs!

    Well, server is about $100 a year, so that’s already been taken care of :)
