Hey, what's that up there? Oh, no big deal. It's only MY FAVORITE ALBUM OF ALL TIME. Wait, what? The excellent Portland Cello Project is performing OK Computer in its entirety this weekend? I should go to that! OH WAIT, I ALREADY AM. Because not only will the Portland Cello Project be accompanied by wind quintet City of Tomorrow and a men's choir, but Weinland's Adam Shearer is going to sing "Exit Music (For a Film)," and... yeah. It's going to be good. (The official PR says there'll also be some "contrasting and complementary classical music," which I assume must be code for a few good cuts off of Radiohead's classic album The Bends.)
Maybe you like OK Computer as much as I do (possible... but doubtful), and maybe you, like me, want to see the Portland Cello Project perform it (no, you cannot sit by me). Well, here's the deal: I've got a pair of tickets to give away to the show, and all you have to do to enter to win them is email me no later than 2 pm today and make sure the subject line of your email is "Paranoid Android." I'll pick a winner at random* and email them to let 'em know they've won.
That's it! Have at.

*Ha! "Random." Good one, me! Anyway, including your favorite quote from Marvin will totally give you better chances.
