CONTEST: Marie Antoinette

Here's another contest for you from the folks promoting the new Sophia Coppola film starring Kirsten Dunst and Jason Schwartzman called Marie Antoinette. (I think Schwartzman is hilarious. C'mon, he was amazing in Rushmore. Plus, he was also the Phantom Planet drummer when they made the song "California", which the OC has drilled into our brains.)

Up for grabs is the soundtrack, a poster, and nail polish (what?). Rules are easy, just send me an email with your name and address to me by October 20th. I'll pick a winner at random for the prize pack. That date (10/20) is incidentally also the relase date for the film.

As I've come to expect from the films Ms. Coppola has directed, this one has a spectacular soundtrack. Anyone who can work a Gang of Four track into a film about the 18th century French monarchy gets two thumbs up from me. Featured artists on the sound track are The Strokes, Radio Dept., New Order, Adam & The Ants, The Cure, Aphex Twin, Gang Of Four, Squarepusher, and a load of others. Here's some music for you in the meantime.

Songs on the Soundtrack
::: The Strokes - What Ever Happened
::: Gang Of Four - Natural's Not In It
::: Aphex Twin - Avril 14th

Don't forget to email macktronic at gmail dot com before October 20 for a chance at the MA prize pack.
