The Pernice To Me Custom Puppet Private Show Contest
Enter to Win!
It is true. 100 years from now, this point in time will be referred to as Joe’s “Puppet Period.”
So, we’ve talked about touring its futility and money-sucking properties. Probably not going to happen. And if you’ve been hanging out with us since the release of Goodbye, Killer and its accompanying book, Pernice To Me, you probably know all about the puppets. Well, to appease none of you, we’re going to have the puppets – Joe, Other Pernice, Menck and James – perform, and we’re going to film it for you.
But that’s not all. The puppet likeness of one lucky winner will be the only audience member at this concert. That’s right. We will commission a puppet likeness of one lucky winner and that puppet likeness will win an all expenses paid trip to see this very special private concert. (In fact, Joe MIGHT even pull the puppet likeness of the winner up on stage to dance, a la Courtney Cox and Bruce Springsteen in “Dancing in the Dark,” only this will be more authentic, because it will be real likenesses of real people – not some aspiring starlet and a big-time rock star.) After the concert, the puppet likeness of the winner will be flown, all expenses paid on United State Postal Service Airlines, to the home of the person whose likeness it bears, at which point, we are no longer responsible for him/her/it.
I wish I could tell you WHEN all of this will happen, but I can’t. As much as we love Bobby Smithney, the official puppet maker of the Pernice Brothers, he doesn’t always move fast. In fact, you might be surprised to find out that puppeteers are not generally motivated by fame or money. Or fear. But, once he makes the puppet likeness of the winner, and we get the puppet band together at an undisclosed location, this happening will happen, and then happen again, on the internets.
