Prize Pack

GP Milwaukee Day 1 Field Report

On Friday, I didn’t play any side events other than the free Mini-Masters event that everyone got to play in if they were at the doors when the convention opened.

My initial pack was excellent and only had one bad card (the red enchantment that gives +2/+1 and menace) which is still playable because it is better than another basic land.  My deck had a Noxious Gearhulk, an Impeccable Timing, and a Tidy Conclusion.  To be honest, I won pretty easily.

My prize pack contained a Subtle Strike, a white flier and some decent black and white cards.  I ended up going Esper because green and red didn’t bring anything to the party.  Looking at my deck, I felt it could deal with aggro, handle control, and play an amazing midrange game.

In game 2, I was doing well with the UB lifelink guy and removal until turn 5.  On turn 5 he dropped a Sword of Light and Shadow.  Since I had no blue removal, artifact hate, or real blue creatures, it was pretty harsh.  I played it out for a while, but eventually I just lost because I couldn’t attack, block, or remove the sword or what it was attached to.  Everything I would kill would eventually come back and he kept gaining life in the process.

I then got some cards signed for a friend by Mark Poole, Noah Bradley, Chris Rahn, and Steve Argyle.  As usual, all of the artists are super nice and friendly.  I even picked up so tokens from RK Post

While at Steve Argyle’s booth, I got some alters done for myself or actually got my time slot reserved a couple hours later.  It was fun to talk with Kat and Steve.  I truly believe that Steve has such long lines because of the enjoyable experience as well as the art.  I also got to meet Minion 430 while I was there.

What are the alters you ask?  Well, I let my kids pick the cards and what was to be altered.  One child picked Chosen of Markov and wanted her wearing a Banana Suit.  The other child wanted Angelic Arbiter as Ho-oh from Pokemon.

Kat streamed the alter process on Facebook so check them out if you have time.

The children also got their own minion IDs and are now Minion 491 2.0 (Pineapple) and 491 3.0 (Sperm Whale).

I’ll report more on Saturday.

All week long we’ve been celebrating Doctor Who by reminiscing about where we started, who got us into the show, and talking about what being a Whovian means to us. To end our  #NewToWho week - let’s share the show with someone new! 

Being able to share your love for a show/movie/podcast/brand twitter/fanfic/etc with each other is the best part about fandom, and when you can share your fandom with someone else, it’s a fantastic feeling. It’s also very rewarding, because showing this thing that you love so much to somebody else gives you the opportunity to support them through the roller coaster of emotions they experience as they watch for the very first time. It’s like being #NewToWho all over again! 

And don’t forget that one of the best things about Whovians is that ANYONE can be one. You can watch an episode with your parents, or your dog, your cat, your librarian, the person who does your taxes, local zookeeper, a friend who lives on the other side of the world, the ghost that haunts your room sometimes, your friend’s cat (make sure you ask permission,) imaginary friend, adipose plush, literally anybody.

And what better way to introduce someone new to the show than with a surprise #NewToWho digital prize pack? It has reaction gifs for your new Whovian friend to use on Tumblr, a cheat sheet for your friend to learn about the show, some fun trivia facts (just because they’re fun), recipes for your next viewing party, and a special letter from Doctor Who Tumblr. You can download the prize pack here!

So tell us a story about how you’ve shared the show with others in the past or how you plan to do it now, make a post about it using the hashtag #NewToWho, and we’ll be reblogging some throughout the day. 

You can grab the entire pack here (53MB zip file.)

You can grab the entire pack as individual files by clicking the links below. 

(We tried to keep the images at sizes that would suit most people’s computers, so make sure you’re viewing the images full sized before printing. If you want any of these bigger pop them into your fave photo editor and blow ‘em up!)

Enjoy!

Story time!

On Tuesday night (June 2, 2015) I was looking up options on how to meet Taylor again when she was here in Charlotte on Monday (June 8, 2015) and I came across the radio station 107.9 The Link’s Sing-Off competition. The rules stated that you had to first win a prize pack from Tuesday - Friday on the radio to qualify to be in the Taylor Swift sing-off contest, and you could call three times a day. 

When I saw that, I said to myself, “I’m setting my alarm for 7:20am and am calling right when I’m able to at 7:30.” When my alarm went off on Wednesday morning (June 3, 2015), I had completely forgotten that I set it, but remembered what it was for, hopped out of bed and turned the radio on. For some reason, it was as if God was telling me to call at about 7:28am, even though they hadn’t said to call yet, and I called ONE TIME. The phone does not ring at all, and I’m about to hang up, when a man on the phone says, “Who’s this?!” I told him my name, he asked for my information and said that I had won a Taylor Swift prize pack and am entered into a sing-off on Saturday night (June 6, 2015) to win backstage passes to meet Taylor. I got really excited because Taylor is my element, my comfort zone, my heart, so I thought that my chances may be good, even though I didn’t want to be boastful. I started getting nervous early that morning, but I put on Taylor’s music and started singing.

For the next 2 ½ days, I studied Taylor’s music with my family, friends and YouTube with karaoke versions, just so I knew that all of my areas were covered. It was non-stop, singing, practicing and singing some more. On Friday night (June 5, 2015), I started getting really nervous as if I couldn’t do this and how I wasn’t going to be able to push myself out of this comfort zone that I am constantly stuck in, but that is when God told me, “Reanna, you truly have this. I know how much you love Taylor. This is yours.” Honestly, He told me that.

When Saturday came, I got ready in my 1989 Seagull shirt that Taylor gave me, and my Seagull Keds and had to be downtown at the Taste of Charlotte (which has THOUSANDS of people, may I add) festival at 4:30pm to check-in at this tiny stage. It was so hot, and I knew this was going to be a crazy day, but I tried to calm every nerve inside of me. Once I checked in, about 15 minutes later the contest started, they told us that there were 17 of us, that they were going to play a clip of Taylor’s songs, and cut it off, and then we had to finish the line. They also said that there was going to be 4 rounds, and then after 4 rounds it would be narrowed down to the final 5, to sing on the big main stage. When the contest started, I was number 9 and nailed that round when they got to me. Fast forward to the other 3 rounds, I nailed all of them and was one of the final 5 to perform on the big stage.

They told us to be at the big stage at 7:30pm and we would finish out the contest with another 4 rounds, but if there wasn’t a winner by then, they would just pick someone’s name out of an envelope. When the contest started, the other 4 girls picked their numbers first, leaving me in the back and I got the last number because there was nothing else left, and that was number 5. Once on the stage, there was THOUSANDS of people in front of me, but I wasn’t as nervous seeing all of them as I was on the tiny stage. All of the girls went before me, and when they got to me, I nailed that song as well. During the second, third and fourth round, three girls were eliminated and it was down to this other girl named Ivy and I. They put Ivy and I’s name in an envelope and after a long 15 seconds, they said my name! I HAD WON. I WAS MEETING TAYLOR AGAIN. The whole crowd cheered, I started bawling and screaming, and saying, “OH MY GOD. OH MY GOD. OH MY GOD.” over and over again. I couldn’t believe it. I fell on the stage and my sister’s and mom who were there with me, came and tackled me on stage in the biggest hug. I was asked who I was taking with me, and while crying, I said “MY MOM! MY MOM!” It was the most euphoric moment that I will never forget. I am still in shock that I won over 17 people.

When I got home, I called my cousin Kristin and told her that I had won. She’s a hairstylist and said that she had the day off on Monday, so she wanted to come and do my hair and make-up. I was ecstatic.

On Saturday night, I came up with the idea to buy Taylor a necklace, but I heard that you couldn’t bring gifts into the pre-show meet and greet, so I was going to wear the necklace instead and then give it to her when I was with her. My mom and I went shopping and found the perfect heart necklace to give her that I thought she would love. 

When yesterday (June 8, 2015) finally came, I couldn’t wait to hug Taylor again. I just couldn’t wait. My mom was so excited to meet Taylor, because she couldn’t go to the Secret Session with me, and Taylor really wished she could meet her when I was there. This moment was truly more for her than it was for me.

The radio station called me yesterday morning and told me that I had to be at the show at 4:30 to check-in and do everything that the instructions listed. When I got to the arena later on that day, I immediately went and got the Meet & Greet information and had to stand outside until the doors opened. Once the doors opened, my mom and I immediately went to where we were supposed to meet and were told that we had to wait for another 30 minutes. We were one of the first people in line and met some really nice girls in front of us. Next, they took us back to where “Loft 89″ (The post-Taylor concert Meet and Greet where people are picked out of the audience to meet her) was held and had to leave every piece of belongings that we had on a table. After standing in line some more, it was finally our time to go behind the curtain to meet Taylor. This was it, what I fought so hard to get. When the curtained opened, Taylor looks at my mom and then my mom goes, “Hey, its your friend.” and points to me. Taylor looks at me and her mouth dropped open. She said “HEY BABE!! I didn’t know you were coming! I am so happy to see your beautiful face again!” and reaches out for the biggest hug. I said, while hugging her, “Duh! I wanted to surprise you!” Taylor said “Oh my God, that’s so nice of you!” and she rubs my arms. My mom hands her the necklace and said, “Reanna wanted to give you this necklace, can you take it?” it was kind of tangled up because it was in my mom’s hand. Taylor untangles it (her nails are glittery and gold) and says “Yeah, I can!” I say, “Yeah, I bought it for you.” Taylor says “Oh my god! It’s beautiful! Thank you!” Then my mom says “I really wanted to meet your mom, I saw her down there, but she’s really busy..” and Taylor says “Yeah, they keep her busy around here doing tours!” 

The camera lady says, “Do you guys want to take a picture?” All three of us say “Yes!” After we take the picture, I look at Taylor and say, “I love you!” and softly from like the purest place in her heart, she says “I love you too!” I hug her again and I say “Thank you for inviting me to your house!” She says, “I’ll see you online.” I say, “Yes, on Tumblr!” and she says “YESSS!!” My mom says “We’re in 107 to your right!” and Taylor goes “Oh my gosh! Thank you. That actually helps me when people tell me that!” I say “Yeah, 107 Row R.” As I pull away, “Taylor says, “You got it?” to make sure I don’t trip or fall or anything, and I say, “Yeah, I do.” I go back to my mom and Taylor says “Bye babe!!” and I say, “Bye babe!!” and then we walked to our left, got our pre-signed pictures and headed out to our seats. 

I will never be able to thank God and 107.9 The Link enough for this opportunity, taylorswift for everything she has done for me, for being so kind to me and remembering me, and last but certainly not least, my mom for always wanting to give me the best moments of my life. Thank you all for all of the well wishes over the past few days, from winning on the radio, to winning the sing-off, to meeting Taylor. I am humbled.
