“The Exciting Brand New Alive with Clive YouTube Video Clip T Contest!”

Hello Friends:

A few days ago, I found myself with a dilemma involving the video clip on the Home Page of www.alivewithclive.tv.

You see, with each passing day, as previously mentioned in a Press Release I issued on April 13, 2009, entitled “One Piece of ‘Real Estate’ – 4” by 7” at http://www.alivewithclive.tv — Just Became Much More Valuable!” which you can see when you click here, as Alive with Clive is becoming known by more and more people, the piece of “real estate” on which that video clip is shown is becoming increasingly more valuable.

And in the next few weeks, as my campaign to obtain bidders to provide discounts for everyone who orders an “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirt, and my efforts to turn votes for musicians to be in The Alive with Clive Top 20 into dollars for people affected by HIV/AIDS in South Africa through sponsor bidding, gather momentum, this 4” by 7” piece of “real estate” on the Home Page of www.alivewithclive.tv is only going to become even more valuable.

In other words, anyone who is seen in a video clip on that 4” by 7” piece of “real estate” will be in a position to experience a quantum leap in recognition, and all the other benefits that go with that, fast!

As mentioned in the Press Release about this 4” by 7” piece of “real estate” referred to above, in April last year I created a weekly contest based on the number of votes obtained by contenders for a slot in The Alive with Clive Top 20.  A video clip of the musician who obtained the most votes in the week in question was posted on the Home Page, and lower down on the Home Page of www.alivewithclive.tv there is still a Wall of Fame to acknowledge the seven musicians who earned the right to have their video clip featured on the Home Page of www.alivewithclive.tv

After a while, Serotonen, the band that is entrenched at the top of The Alive with Clive Top 20, dominated the voting, and a video clip featuring Serotonen became a fixture on the Home Page at www.alivewithclive.tv for several weeks.

Then I noticed that Michael Lynche, one of the musicians I interviewed on Alive with Clive in September, 2008, was a contestant on American Idol and made it into the Top 4 this year.  So naturally it made sense for me to feature a video clip of Michael Lynche on the Home Page of www.alivewithclive.tv, and the video clip of him singing his “dirty blues” version of the classic “Ain’t No Sunshine” is still there at the moment.

But now that the 2010 American Idol season is behind us, the question that popped into my head a few days ago is this:  Which video clip do I place on the Home Page of www.alivewithclive.tv?

As you know, I’ve recently created the “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirt, and I am selling the T-shirt to turn votes for musicians to be in The Alive with Clive Top 20 into dollars for people affected by HIV/AIDS in South Africa.

To encourage fans of musicians I’ve interviewed on Alive with Clive to experience the thrill of owning an “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirt and the joy of gaining access to the enriching book of quotes I recently created, Quotes To Multiply Your Magnificence – A Compilation of the Most Inspiring and Insightful Quotes of All Time! as well as all future updates, FREE, between now and December 31, 2010, I’ve decided to feature a video clip on the Home Page of www.alivewithclive.tv of the musicians whose fans order the most “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirts.

Here’s how this contest will work:

  1. There will be four phases:  The first phase will be from June 26 at 8 p.m. until 11.59 p.m. Pacific time on Tuesday, July 6; the second from July 7 until 11.59 p.m. Pacific time on Saturday, July 17; the third from July 18 until 11.59 Pacific time on Saturday, July 31, 2010; and the fourth from August 1 until 11.59 p.m. Pacific time on Thursday, September 30, 2010.
  2. A video clip of the musician whose fans are first to order five “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirts will be featured on the Home Page of www.alivewithclive.tv from the time the first five orders are received until 11.59 p.m. Pacific time on July 6.
  3. A video clip of the musician whose fans have ordered the most “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirts by 11.59 Pacific time on Tuesday, July 6, will be featured on the Home Page of www.alivewithclive.tv from July 7 until 11.59 p.m Pacific time on Saturday, July 17.
  4. A video clip of the musician whose fans have ordered the most “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirts by 11.59 p.m. Pacific time on Saturday, July 17, will be featured on the Home Page of www.alivewithclive.tv from July 18 until 11.59 p.m. Pacific time on Saturday, July 31.
  5. For the period August 1 through September 30, the video clips shown will be those that correspond to the first 61 orders, in the order of the video clip for the lowest number of orders per musician through July 31 to the highest.  If there are less than 61 orders by July 31, each video clip will be shown for a proportionate number of extra days between August 1 and September 30.  And if there are more than 61 orders, each video clip will be shown for a proportionate number of fewer days.
  6. The video clip of the musician for whom the most orders have been submitted by 11.59 Pacific time on Thursday, September 30, will be shown for the entire month of October, November or December, one of which must be chosen by the winning musician, and I will also issue a Press Release dedicated to this musician.
  7. The musician on behalf of whom the second highest number of T-shirts is ordered by 11.59 p.m. Pacifice time on Thursday, September 30, will be featured for 20 days in one of the other two months not chosen by the winning musician, and the musician on behalf of whom the third highest number of T-shirts is ordered by 11.59 Pacific time on Thursday, September 30, will be featured for ten days in one of the other two months not chosen by the winning musician.
  8. The musicians on behalf of whom there were additional T-shirt orders by 11.59 p.m. Pacific time on Thursday, September 30, will share the remaining 30 days in the three months not used by the first three musicians, in proportion to the number of orders that were submitted on behalf of each one.
  9. All orders will be cumulative, so it will be possible for the same musician to be the winning musician in all four phases, but orders placed before June 26 will not be counted for this contest. 
  10. The different phases and rules have been designed to give as many musicians as possible the opportunity to have a video clip displayed on the Home Page of www.alivewithclive.tv between now and December 31, 2010, while at the same time favoring the musicians whose fans place the most orders for “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirts.
  11. While only musicians for whom a video clip already appears on The Alive with Clive TV Channel on YouTube are currently eligible to win this contest, “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirts ordered by fans of musicians who have already appeared on Alive with Clive, or who have not yet appeared but will appear on Alive with Clive by July 31, for whom a video clip has not yet been posted on The Alive with Clive TV Channel on YouTube will be counted as soon as a video clip for the musician they support is posted on The Alive with Clive TV Channel on YouTube, provided it is posted before October 1, and lots of orders from fans of musicians for whom a video clip has not yet been posted will increase the likelihood that a video clip of the musician supported will be posted sooner rather than later.
  12. While every effort will be made to post video clips not yet posted of all musicians whose fans have ordered an “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirt as soon as possible, no assurance can be given that a video clip will be posted of every musician of whom a video clip has not yet been posted on The Alive with Clive TV Channel on YouTube, and refunds of amounts paid for “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirts will not be given under any circumstances, whether or not a video clip is posted before October 1.
  13. For an order in support of a musician to count for that musician, the name of the musician must be stated in the Special Instructions in the payment stage of the ordering process or in a separate email to me  or in a voice-mail message left for me by phone at my phone number below  in which a reference is made to the date and time of the order in support of the musician.
  14. Since shipping to destinations outside the United States is more expensive, orders from outside the United States must be made using the PayPal button for delivery outside the United States at the Web site you see when you click here.
  15. Rankings of musicians and T-shirt orders will be posted as often as necessary, and as soon as possible after orders are received, at the Web page you’ll see when you click here.
  16. “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirts bought by musicians themselves will also count as T-shirts bought by their fans. 
  17. Musicians who receive support from their fans in this contest will be featured extensively in such promotional media as Facebook, Twitter, in Press Releases, and on my Blog, as well as in other endeavors to promote Alive with Clive, so musicians who are successful in encouraging their fans to order an “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirt will benefit from every order on their behalf.
  18. It is recommended that musicians eligible to win this contest provide incentives such as free songs, free posters, discounted tickets to shows and even T-shirts of their own to encourage their fans to order an “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirt.
  19. The bonuses being offered by the different musicians to encourage their fans to order “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirts on their behalf will be shown on the Web page you’ll see when you click here
  20. To be featured on this page, at least ten bonuses from any musician must be provided.
  21. To claim a gift, a person who orders an “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirt on behalf of a musician must also specify the gift being claimed in the Special Instructions, or in a separate email to me or in a voice mail message left for me at the number below in which a reference is made to the date and time of the order.  If the person who has ordered claims the gift after no more are left, he or she will be notified that he or she is too late. No refunds will be granted to purchasers even if they are too late to receive the gift they wanted or for any other reason. 
  22. Gifts of CDs that are sent to me by musicians will be mailed to each purchaser with the T-shirt ordered.
  23. Between now and September 30, 2010, corporations that have the ability to provide prizes that will be appreciated by musicians or incentives that will be appreciated by fans will be approached to see if they’d like to provide a prize to one or more musicians whose fans order the most “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirts or to fans, but no assurance can be given that a prize or prizes will be awarded to any of the musicians or that any incentives will be made available to fans.
  24. In the event there is a tie at 11.59 Pacific time on September 30, 2010, fans of musicians involved in the tie will have another 24 hours in which to submit orders.  In the event of a further tie at 11.59 p.m. on October 1, the first order after 11.59 p.m. Pacific time on October 1 will be the deciding order.
  25. “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirts are ordered from the manufacturer in batches of 24 or more, so there may be delays in receiving the T-shirts, but the bonuses and access to Quotes To Multiply Your Magnificence will be made available to each purchaser immediately after his or her order.  In addition, each purchaser of an “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirt will qualify to receive the discounts as soon as they are available.

  • Everyone who wears the “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirt or who sees others wearing it will notice the words on the back, “Creating An Upward Spiral Of Brilliance And Joy In The World!” and will therefore be helping me to fulfill my promise for the world.   
  • Corporations that provide prizes to the musicians and benefits to purchasers will win because they will gain valuable exposure by being associated with the most important cause of providing support to the millions of people affected by HIV/AIDS in South Africa.
  • People affected by HIV/AIDS in South Africa will win because as a result of this contest more attention will be focused on their plight, and four dollars from the sale of every “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirt will be used to turn votes for musicians to be in The Alive with Clive Top 20 into dollars for their benefit.

I’m looking forward to receiving orders for the “I’m Alive with Clive” T-shirt from the fans of musicians I’ve interviewed on Alive with Clive for whom a video clip is available for viewing on The Alive with Clive TV Channel on YouTube, which you’ll see when you click here, and to keeping track of the contenders who want their video clip featured on the Home Page of Alive with Clive between July 7 and December 31, 2010.
