Prince Rama momentarily ignore the fundamental oneness of all matter and energy to announce "So Destroyed" dance contest

So, remember last week or so when we appeared to you in a dream and told you about plastic-souled soundsurfers Prince Rama’s intentions to channel a cosmic Kickstarter campaign in order to fund a “now-age psych opera” meant to accompany November 11 release of their LP, Top Ten Hits of the End of The World (which, by the way, we also told you about; how on top of this shit are we?)?? Well, it turns out that that was NO DREAM, man!!

Unfortunately, it also turns out that it’s, uh, not working out so well as of right now (you’d better get over there and pledge some cash if you want to see this happen, folks). In the meantime, it looks like the band has settled on an equally zany but considerably cheaper promotional tool in order to keep their whole “we make overtly mystic party music” marketing thing alive. It was announced yesterday that they’re now planning on holding a “dance contest” for their new single “So Destroyed” wherein “anyone can submit a youtube video of themselves dancing to the song.” And despite the obvious fact that our separateness is a bullshit illusion, the band will still pick a “grand prize winner” who will receive his/her own custom made Prince Rama dance shoes, a signed copy of the new album, and an opportunity to perform the winning dance LIVE on stage with the band. Beyond that, they’ll also compile some of their other favorite videos and feature them in the song’s official music video. See? Cheap for you; cheap for them, still wacky.

Interested potential dance contest insta-stars should email their videos to sodestroyed @ pawtracks.com by September 24. The “winner” will be announced the following week. In the meantime, here’s a nice little bong-load of what you’re up against:
