    Alright. So we finally have our Usher tickets in hand, which means that we can finally give them away.

    To you!

    Two pairs of tickets, four in total.

    Two winners.

    We played with the idea of contests, parties and other fun stuff, but they involve time and money, of which we have very little.

    So...

    To win a pair of tickets for the performance on Sun, July 11 at Wukesong Stadium, just send me a PM (private message) explaining why you want them so badly.

    Does your life completely suck? Having a rough summer? Need an outlet?

    We understand. We're empathatic! Our lives are difficult, too!

    The people with the most desparate circumstances win -- it's as simple as that.

    You can post in the forum below, too, but sifting through private messages is both easier for me and makes for a more honest outpouring, I think.

    And don't try to lie your way to the top! The WLIB team is a smart bunch.

    We'll annouce the winners on Wednesday, July 7.

    Good luck!

    I drunk hooked up with a fatty in Mexico, easily the equivalent of 3 typical Chinese girls. Do I win?

    No, Jon, you don't, primarily because you live in the United States.

    *facepalm*

    But I can give you a choice of either an Official WLIB Attention Whore Gift Certificate redeemable for a free drink at any participating location or a scrap of paper with the word "dignity" scrawled on it.

    Which one do you prefer?

    :)

    I really need them cause I'm desperate to get people pissed and angry at me. Since I'll be in France on the 11 and therefore will not use the tickets, I can imagine a storm of fans willing to kill me which would bring some sense back into my life.

    If the amount of time spent browsing these forums by anyone who doesn't actually work for this website is an indication, my life certainly sucks.
    Also, I'm losing my job, and while I won't pretend I'm really sad about that, I'm considering drifting away to a far off land when my lease is up in a month, so this might be your only chance to do something nice for me.
    Also, I'm a 27 yr old virgin :-p

    Jon, that's like getting laid 3 times. It doesn't get you points on the loser scale, it costs you points!

    27 ah bastard you beat me, but I'm sure you at least got a kiss from a girl once in your life, I even never had that (mothers don't count!) (and those pics on my gallery have been photoshopped, I've never actually met any of those girls).

    Only about six people actually run WLIB. In terms of columnists, we usually pick out users who are good writers and give them their own column. Since they number precisely three, your analysis is a bit off.

    Yeah, see...just how fat was this gal, Jon? It couldnt've been that bad.

    Y-Yeah, Yeah

    Just wanted to throw that out there.

    Pete, where is my ticket? I still have the screenclip saved in my computer!

    Anyway, i have the hunch i will win the ticket! just let me know in advance, does the winner will put a "loser" tag on their forehead? And their misarable story will be public posted on this forum ?

    sounds nasty and excited, i'm in! you will be the executor? right? Pete? If it wasn't you, i will give my this offer a second thought! :P

    Haha Pete, I know, it's just a coincidence that the people I interact with most here all seem to have their own columns. Actually, Xavier doesn't work for you right? I guess he kills more time here than me.

    You didn't address the issue at hand though. Can I have the tickets on account of I can probably think of at least one Usher song if I try hard? I don't think I could pick him out of a police lineup though, I might confuse him with Britney.

    For Usher's sake, you should give me the tickets. I can do a mean Li'l Jon impersonation, and someone has to be ready to step in during Yeah.

    Sorry that was an impression of Dave Chappelle doing an impression of Lil' Jon, which I guess isn't the same thing.

    Honestly, Pete's the only one here who can rhyme, maybe he should give the tickets to himself.

    Pete, if you can spit rhymes like that in Chinese, I'll get you a job as a host on 湖南卫视. It shouldn't be too hard, seeing as everything in Chinese rhymes anyway.
