This Is Nowhere Mug

Win me.

By Glen

This Is Nowhere, The Airborne Toxic Event fan blog, officially launched last year on July 13. With our first anniversary just around the corner, we’re getting ready to celebrate – by giving you a chance to win!

In one of our early posts, we wrote about the film Springsteen and I, and mused about it in the context of The Airborne Toxic Event fan community. With this crowdsourced movie, the creators accomplished through film what we hoped to do through This Is Nowhere: provide a venue for fans to share their stories of what draws them to their favorite band, and celebrate the connection we share as a result.

As part of the Springsteen and I project, the producers invited fans of the Boss to submit videos of themselves sharing what Bruce means to them in a mere three words. This request yielded thousands of responses as fans attempted to sum up their passion in just a few brief syllables. Many of these clips made it to the big screen, sprinkled throughout the film.

For This Is Nowhere’s first anniversary, we invite you to to join us in our own crowdsourced celebration of The Airborne Toxic Event by contributing to TATE For You in 3 Words. Choose the three words that best encapsulate what this band means to you, and e-mail them (either in text format or on video) to crowdsourcing@thisisnowhere.com by July 4. We will feature every submission in a special anniversary post on July 15 (note: by sending it to us, you consent for us to publish it).

But wait… there’s more! By taking part, you will be entered to win a one-of-a-kind This Is Nowhere mug, featuring the photography of Ryan Macchione, whose work is frequently seen on this website, and who generously allowed us to use it for this project. (Incidentally, check out his website for some sweet swag.)

If you submit your three words in text format, you’ll receive one entry in the draw. Send it on video, and we’ll give you two chances to win. Note, please keep the video file under 8MB if you are e-mailing it. If the file is larger than that, please upload it to YouTube and send us a link.

On July 15, we’ll announce the winner as we unveil our tribute to The Airborne Toxic Event: the band that keeps inspiring us to just try to write it all down.
