Depeche Mode Twitter Contest: I Won!!

Back in November 2010, Depeche Mode was having a little contest on the website Twitter. There would be 5 First Place winners who would  win an unreleased 12" vinyl single of the song "Peace" (off the Sounds of the Universe album). With a selection of runner ups winning either a set of DM Tour of the Universe Postcards (from the SOTU box set) or a VIP pass from the tour. All you had to do was have a Twitter account, follow Depeche Mode and tweet about the upcoming DVD release. I already had a Twitter account and I already followed Depeche Mode, so I thought what the heck I'll do it. Turns out I was one of the first five place winners! I was completely shocked, and overjoyed! I never thought I would win. I was notified that I would soon receive my prize. In the meantime I was contacted by another First Place winner who found me on Twitter. His name is Sev and is from Russia. We both kept in touch online updating one another on are status of receiving are prize, even if we are on opposite sides of the world. About a week ago he received his and I was worried, just when was I going to get mine? Than this afternoon while my brother came home from school and brought in the mail he says " Look what I have for you!" I screamed and jumped up and down with excitement it finally was here!!

 I love that my name and address is handwritten, it makes it much more personal and special. It arrived in simple packaging, not even a label on the record. I love it though, it's like this secret only a few us in the world know what is (and now you do too). Time to plug in my record player and listen! I owe it to DM for not only giving me a chance to win this, but also gaining a friend! DM always unifies and spreads the love.
Thank You Depeche Mode and Twitter ( I give myself a pat on the back for wining the contest too, haha)!
