  1. Chili, particularly my Mom’s recipe, brings up some pretty strong memories of late fall/early winter. She wouldn’t make it until after the first snow fall and I would anxiously wait for it every year. I make it myself now, but never before the first snowfall (and it’s never quite as good as her’s was).

  2. Heartless Bastards tickets, please! As far as bastards go, my favorite has to be Ol’ Dirty Bastard. He’s been making a good name for bastards ever since he hit the scene.

  3. I’d like a shot at those Heartless Bastards tickets.

    Favorite bastard eh? Well, I’d probably have to go with the classic option here, George Washington. Not only was he the first official president of these United States, he also had no clue who his pappy was. Raised by a single mother in a broken home, he defied the odds and slapped himself on the one- dollar bill. Oh, and he led some sort of revolution or something. Plus, he wrote and starred in this song:

    If that’s not the best bastard of all time, I don’t know who is.

  4. # names:
    Jackson 5
    .38 special
    three doors down
    10000 maniacs
    311
    2pac
    blink 182
    b52’s
    KRS one
    sevendust
    third eye blind
    u2
    three six mafia
    maroon 5
    eiffel 65

  5. Steve sure names a lot.
    I can think of….STS9! Minus the bear?
    I totally want tickets for El Ten Eleven though! They’ve been my go-to pandora station for a while now

  6. A strong food memory? Fry bread for sure…the memory of watching my Grandmas hands knead and mix the dough, gently placing in hot grease….priceless

  7. Heartless Bastard tix over here!

    I don’t know if Eva Peron is my favorite bastard, but she sure was one of the most heartless. She oppressed political rivals, protected Nazi war criminals, laundered government money into private bank accounts, amongst other corrupt activities.

  8. Heartless Bastard- A fictional bastard is Fat Bastard from Austin Powers films.
    Black Prairie- strong food memory is watermelon. As a kid I ate too much and got sick all over white carpeting. I still get sick when I smell watermelon.

  9. Winners have been notified. Thanks all!
