Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, you guys, and so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. Thatâ€™s what Martin Luther King Jr. told us during his famous â€œPromised Landâ€ speech in Memphis, Tennessee (April, 1968) and while weâ€™re reading between the lines a little bit, weâ€™re pretty sure what he meant was this: If you want the Co-Main Event Podcast to have a dope theme song, you have to take the initiative. That shit ainâ€™t gonna write itself.
And so it is up to you, CME Universe, to write, record and enter the contest we hope will produce a brand new main title theme for the show. Since our intense demographic research reveals that pretty much all of you play in cool bands, are DJs, singer/songwriters and/or amazingly talented solo musicians, we figure this wonâ€™t be a problem.
You have about three weeks to get this done. Once all entries are received, your humble co-hosts will review them and select a winner. Or maybe weâ€™ll pick some finalists and let the Universe vote on a winner. That part is up in the air at the moment. For now, all you need to concern yourself with is the creative process, and composing a dynamite song to lead the CME into the warm glow of the future. You want to make an epic seven minute video of yourself rapping on a pirate ship to go with it, thatâ€™s your business. All we need are the tunes.
ALL ENTRIES MUST BE RECEIVED BY NOON (in the one true time zone, obviously) ON JULY 16, 2013.
