Announcing the Who's That Famous Face Contest!

Well guys, I'm pretty excited to announce Go Retro's first ever contest! After a few years of running this blog and attracting a nice little devoted following, I figured it was time to reward my readers in anticipation of its 4th anniversary. The prize? It's a $25 gift certificate to Plasticland, the "purveyors of kitsch curiosities and retro clothing since 2002." Admittedly, this site will probably appeal more to women than men; however, I invite the guys out there to check out the home decor because there are some items that men will like..including a Star Wars wall clock! Also, other online retro stores that I contacted about securing a gift certificate or promo code never got back to me. This was one of the only ones that offered it.

Here's how to win it: this is graduation season, so I've collected some high school and college shots of famous people (3 girls, 3 guys) when they were in school. I've tried to include some that you can't find simply by Googling "celebrity yearbook photos"; that would make it way too easy! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post listing, in order, who each famous face is. The contest will run for 48 hours, until 10:45 PM E.S.T. At the end of the contest period, I'll collect the names of everyone who has the correct answers and will randomly choose a winner, who will be announced on Friday.

RULES: 1. No anonymous comments, please - I have to be able to email you the gift certificate! 2. If you subscribe to the blog's feed, you MUST leave your answers in the comments section on the actual blog...do not email me your answers or I cannot include you in the running!

Hints? Well, I really don't want to give any because that would make it too easy and because I know you have the smarts already. However, I will give you one clue: all of these people are still alive. Ready??? OK - here you go, and good luck! Have fun! Remember, you have to leave your answers in the comment box - no exceptions!

Ive seen the #1 guy before but forgot who it is. #4 is definatly Sandra Bullock

Nicki - OK, this may provide another hint for some people...*none* of your answers were correct. Sorry!

If it helps, here's another clue...ALL of these folks currently have very active careers. Definitely all a part of today's pop culture. I know #s 3 & 6 are going to be the toughest for most folks but think current...

I'm so bad at these kind of things. I would say that #2 looks like Bill Murray though and I was guessing Sheryl Crow for #6. I can't wait until the answers are revealed. The winner certainly is getting a cool prize.

lol. I'm so bad at these, and I think everyone got the few I knew:

#2 is Bill Murray
#4 is Sandra Bullock
and #5 is a guy with in drag! :)
And I agree that #6 looks like Sheryl Crow.

Anyway, I've never been good at these ID games, but I do enjoy playing them.

Congrats on your following. Well deserved, and good luck all!
