90210 Contest Winners!

19 10 2009

So I have to admit I’m a bit disappointed in how this contest turned out.  It was the third contest I’ve done on TDW and easily the least successful–only 2 people entered.

I’m wondering why this is.  Are you guys not interested in 90210 prizes?  Or were you unfamiliar with the bands?  I would appreciate any feedback you care to provide.

I thought about extending the deadline but that risked the possibility of no further entries anyway, and would be unfair to the 2 that did enter.

So I decided that those 2–g90210th and Chrissy–deserve to be the winners (and I honestly did like their entries).  They will each receive a copy of Soundtrack 90210 and a 90210 poster.

I still have one CD and one poster left for a future contest.

  • There’s a new One Tree Hill Connection podcast, which features an interview with India de Beaufort (Miranda).

  • Penn Badgley (Dan, Gossip Girl) confirmed to MTV that Lady Gaga will appear on an upcoming episode.
  • MTV also has details on Badgley attending the premiere for The Stepfather, his new film. He’s also the subject of this week’s edition of their column Star Gazing.

  • EW.com spoke with Leighton Meester (Blair, Gossip Girl) about her new song, Somebody to Love. Meester says she can’t find love–which is an interesting thing to say if you’re dating Sebastian Stan (Carter, Gossip Girl). Unless they aren’t anymore?  She made a similar comment on the radio this morning with Ryan Seacrest.

  • The Los Angeles Times has a story on the release of the soundtrack.
