OH SHNAP...I ALMOST HAD IT (too bad almost doesn't count)!
Just like I said, I almost had it. Good ol' Karmaloop and The Cool Kids hosted a t-shirt contest on their site. The decision day was set for around the 31st of January, and the deadline for submissions was on the first. When I first saw the contest I toiled...should I, shouldn't I. Funny enough, I really don't do the contest thing, but I was for whatever reason, compelled to enter this one. So I got my images together and began my work. I finally finished the design and was proud and happy that I entered. It came time to save my work, upload my image and submit my entry. Once that was done, I was calling everyone, "hey so and so, I entered a t-shirt design in this contest on karmaloop and I want you to vote for it." Man, I checked that site through and through looking for my entry and couldn't find the damn thing, it wasn't there. I said to myself, "let me check the guide lines to see if I followed all the directions to the letter," and there I saw it in light grey letters: deadlines for all submissions are due January 1st. Of course it wouldn't be so bad if it was like December 29th, but since it was January 29th, I was, as the French say, "sh*t outta luck." So here it is people, my entry. WTF?!
