Happy Birthday LHB!!! 50 Albums For 5 Years Contest

On Monday, January 29th, Largehearted Boy will celebrate its fifth birthday. In honor of the occasion, I decided to hold a contest to share my favorite things, music and books. With so much music around my house in various formats (and duplicates), I cleaned out 50 quality discs (with the additional help of Beggars Group, who kicked in a couple of releases) for the grand prize winner. With the exception of some of the Mountain Goats releases, these discs were all released since LHB's inception. Since LHB readers have been very kind to suggest graphic novels and introduce me to the genre, the runner-up will receive my five favorite graphic novels of the past five years. Four additional winners will get a grab bag of four random (but appreciated by me) CDs.

To enter this contest, leave a comment in this post, the contest will be open until midnight Eastern time, Sunday, January 28th, and the winner will be randomly chosen and announced the next day.

Thanks for reading Largehearted Boy for the past five years, I am grateful for the opportunity to share what I love with the world.
