New trivia contest on the home page, to win shirts for the new Beastie Boys documentary. You can scroll down on the home page for details. Or you can look below:


The Beastie Boys say "Awesome! I F****n Shot That!" in their new concert documentary. It opens in theaters March 31, but tonight, March 23, there will be special advanced screenings of the film nationwide. Go here to find a theater in your area. Awesome was culled from footage shot by 50 different passionate fans at a sold-out concert at New York's Madison Square Garden. The film sounds awesome to us, too, and now you can win an Awesome movie shirt, thanks to the generosity of THINKFilm and GreenCine. You can be the first on your block to wear one of these Beastie T's, so enter now for your chance to win! And check the film (and your head) soon.

To be eligible for our random drawing, send the correct answer to the
question below, in an email to contest@greencine.com, including
your name, email address and, if you're a GreenCine member, your username in the email, and "Awesome" in the subject header. Entries without all this information will not be considered. The deadline
is Saturday, March 25, at 12PM PST.
Winners will be notified by e-mail and announced in future editions of the GreenCine Dispatch newsletter.

THE QUESTION: Which of the Beastie Boys uses the pseudonym for director "Nathaniel Hornblower"?

Up today April 4 with a deadline of Thursday, April 6:

The best way to kick off the 2006 baseball season is to look back to how the last one ended - and baseball fans everywhere (especially White Sox fans, not as much Astros fans) will want a copy of a new DVD set, the 2005 Series World Series Collector's Edition. We're giving this box away to the lucky winner of our brand new trivia contest. The set includes the division series clincher against the Red Sox, championship clincher vs. the Angels, all four World Series games against the Astros, and interviews with players and coaches; plus "Sleeve Stats," box scores and other fun trivia from each game. Thanks to A&E Home Video and GreenCine, you can step up to the plate for your chance to win!

To be eligible for our random drawing, send the correct answer to the
question below, in an email to contest@greencine.com, including
your name, email address and, if you're a GreenCine member, your username in the email, and "White Sox Box" in the subject header. Entries without all this information will not be considered. The deadline is Thursday, April 6, at 12PM PST. Winners will be notified by e-mail and announced in future editions of the GreenCine Dispatch newsletter.

THE QUESTION: Who was named the '05 World Series MVP?

If we win this one, are we cursed not to win another for 88 years? :)

Nope! Assuming we have another one before 88 years are up. ;-)

Yup, random this time. We took a few whacks at concocting a trivia question, but they were either way too easy ("What is Oxide Pang's brother's name?") or very hard for all but the most dedicated Thai movie buffs and experienced web researchers (cheaters!)

Hee. Just want people to enter and have a chance with this one.

Well, easy in the sense that you can find the answer on GreenCine with one click. Just click on The Eye link and you'd get it. But not easy in the common everyday knowledge sense...

Rusty is their younger cousin. Guilt is their sister.
