We happen to have a pair of tickets to the Smashing Pumpkins show at Nokia on Saturday, Nov. 3. We love you guys, so we thought we'd share the wealth. I'm a Halloween nut, so we're having a little Halloween-themed contest. Below is a picture, compliments of a DC-9 friend, of a zombie lady. We want you to figure out what's she's doing. Write a caption for the photo, post it as a comment (make sure to include your e-mail so we can contact you), and come noon on Wednesday, we'll pick a favorite. Be clever, funny and gross. We're all about that. Oh, and the tickets come with club and parking passes. -- Chelsea Ide
Update: We've picked a winner. We can't resist jokes about the Trinity River, so J. McKenzie wins with this cutline:
Blue hair, pale skin, psychotic rage...she is obviously suffering from the effects of a swim in the Trinity River.
Watch your email for the details on collecting your winnings.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
