Pod of Funk Number Thirty Five

Pod of Funk, the famously eclectic funk podcast, previews a series of shorts for August 2008, and a FUNKY COMPETITION! These 7 minute minipods are also airing weekday lunchtimes on DeepBlue FM (87.9) a southern England radio station. DeepBlue FM is funded entirely by sponsorship, which means the DJs have a lot more say in the music they play. They also have the good taste to have invited Deek Deekster to contribute...

**COMPETITION ALERT**
To coincide with the Beijing Olympics, we are running a competition with Komodo, the designers of the official FREE TIBET CAMPAIGN t-shirt. It's very simple: BUY the garment(s), then make a video or take a picture of you (and your friend!) wearing the t-shirt(s) whilst doing something SPECTACULARLY SPORTING or SPORTY (please don't injure yourselves!)

Send it in, and you could win a delicious night out for two at a Chinese Restaurant!

Click here to buy the shirt - sizes 1 - 4 (S)(M)(L)(XL), light blue, white or grey.

During the checkout process there is an option to leave additional information or comment. Quote "FUNK" to be automagically entered into the competition.

Email your pictures and videos doing your creative physical stuff to: deek [dot] deekster [at] gmail [dot] com

NB: I am not benefiting financially from t-shirt sales. I am doing this because I think the t-shirts are cool and Komodo are donating 20% of their sale price to the Free Tibet Campaign. I think China needs to be held to account over their treatment of the Tibetans and other dissenting voices in China.

TERMS: All entries will be judged by me and the winner will be chosen at my personal discretion. My decision will be final. I make no warranty as to the t-shirts whatsoever. All activities conducted wearing the t-shirts are entirely at your own risk. We get to choose the restaurant (it won't be crap!) we pay for the food, and you get to buy the booze. What do you expect? This is raising money for a good cause!

And now - the playlist...
