My own opinions of the Kidnapping (which I edited) aside, and the fact that I haven't looked at the competition, I did not enter this "contest" and I just one day got this letter. I guess I should be happy or something, but really, I'm reading the rules for this thing.. And if you win, WeShow gives interviews with cast and/or crew, and our cast/crew has since split up. In fact, it's just like. If youw in, it's more work for you, but you get exposure? Right? Wtf?
Anyway, I want to know if this WeShow thing is like, legit or something. Or if it spells bad news.
