It's been over 72 hours, and we only received one response from the last drawing, so let's try it again. Yep, it's time for the third-chance drawing.

The winner of the third-chance random drawing (chosen at random from the ever-dwindling list of remaining participants, using Random.org) is:

Darth Maher

The winner has 3 days to let us know, by posting in this thread, that he/she wants his/her prize, otherwise the unclaimed prize will, yet again, be re-gifted (on June 14). So, as always, if your name wasn't picked, don't give up hope yet.

Keep hope alive!

My goal was to finish season 2 of Buffy but I finished woefully short. I was sidetracked a bit by my mini-Avengers challenge, which I did well on and enjoyed, but otherwise I just didn't find the watching time. Maybe I'll pick it up again in July or October.

No kidding. And even now, it is a lot less detailed than I normally make it for the challenges. I knew I wouldn't have a lot of time to do this challenge (and I',m actually catching with a lot more on the DVR this month), but I figured that since I started the challenge, I should at least list what I did watch.

Thanks GoldenWheels!

I'll be heading back to the site soon to buy some stuff that were potential pickings for my prize.

Got my Frankenhooker blu-ray today! Just had eye surgery yesterday and it was nice to have something good waiting on me when I staggered home. Thanks to Dimension X and GoldenWheels for putting a bright spot (or that might be the new lens) in my week!

One of last year's winners didn't know he'd won until about a month later too, so you're not alone. Remember to check your PMs, and read the discussion threads now and then, folks.

Is there a Make Your Own Challenge this year? Or is it an open month and if you just want to make your own make your own unofficial challenge feel free to watch what you want to watch?

Yes, DX is contractually obligated to run it every year.

If he quits, I have to run it and he has to organize my DVD collection.

Yes, there will be one. Thanks for asking. Typically there's not a lot of discussion in the discussion thread for it, so I don't start it until mid-April (I started this one on 04-16-12). I had planned to start 2013's thread Mon. or Tues. of next week.

GoldenWheels and Hamilton Books are once again sponsoring a prize giveaway. So while you're thinking up your challenge theme(s),take some time and check out their website and make your prize wishlist too.

Oh, wait. You said "organize," not "have."

Looking forward to next month. I am going to deviate from my normal foreign-language film challenge and do a month of Hitchcock flicks. This will give me a chance to delve into my UK set I got last year.

Quit replying to this old thread. You won't have anything left to say when I start the new one.

Maybe I'll get to it tomorrow instead of waiting until Tuesday.

Since I haven't had a lot of luck watching movies recently, I'll make myself get onto this. Expect it later tonight, or really early Tues. at the latest.
