From JimthePug: Hardly news but I filled out the EMI music survey you linked to a few weeks back, and today my shiny Gorillaz CD appeared in the mail. I was beginning to think it was a scam because it took so long for the cd to appear. I got a Cd for a few moments of my time. And I thank overclockers.com.au for linking it! No worries, I got my "Best Ever Air Guitar" CD too. :) A few other people in the forums got theirs also.. gotta love free stuff.
