NOW, WE HAVE CONTESTS!
After Thanksgiving ended, I was playing catch-up after busting my face open. Now, I’ve got a cool Kylo Ren scar on my nose in time for The Last Jedi. Naturally, some stuff fell through the cracks. As such, I wanted to pair a bunch of remaining 2017 material into one giant chance for readers to win.
This Best of Year article will get updated throughout the month. Some lists are done, some lists will trickle out until the last week of the year. While reading, we want you to scan your eyeballs all the way to the end of the list. As such, we’re offering contests at the bottom of page!
HOW TO ENTER
Answer the following questions/perform the following functions:
1) Which Vice Principals character does the AV crew thinks looks like Rob Hughes (www.braindeadradio.com)?
2) If James Franco really was twins, how many more terrible Faulkner adaptations could he make in a given year?
3) The Deuce is about the sleazy parts of NYC during the peak grime era. While watching the show, I’d read up on the time over at the Rialto Report. Follow The Rialto Report on Twitter. They’re good people.
4) Who was your worst Vice Principal? I want to hear stories.
WHAT’S TO WIN IN THIS FINE CONTEST?
Digital HD codes for “The Deuce” and “Vice Principals”!
WHEN DOES IT END?
Winners will be selected at AV’s discretion or whenever HBO yells at us to turn this off.
