Looking for an introduction to grindhouse cinema? You should check out Grindhouse Trailer Classics 2. In fact, you can win one of three copies of the DVD in our latest competition.
Grindhouse you ask? Just another word for low-budget, high-shock cinema – everything from bloodthirsty horror to blaxploitation and kung fu. If you want the full breakdown, read our review over at Cinedelica.
And if you like the idea of owning one, you can enter the competition below, hosted over on our Modculture site. Good luck!

Unfortunately, we fell behind with things, so forgot to draw the winners for the Shinzi Katoh tote bag competition. Thanks to everyone who entered, we got swamped with hundreds of entries. Anyway, enough of the rambling, the two winners chosen at random are:
Henriette Selvig – Kirkenes, Norway
Ashleigh Allan – Kirkcaldy, Scotland
I’ve contacted you both for your postal address. More competitions to follow – and don’t forget, we have tickets for the Mighty Boosh Festival to give away right now.
The traditional festival circuit is starting to look a bit tired and dated, so it’s good to see some new boys getting in on the act – like The Mighty Boosh Festival. And if you want to see what it’s like for free, we have a pair of tickets to give away.
Well, we did give you pre-warning about this competition and now it’s live – so you can get your name in the hat to win a signed Paul Weller-designed Fred Perry top plus £250 to spend at Fred Perry.
The signed top is a prize money can’t buy – and might just be the only one signed by Paul Weller. The top itself is a limited edition, designed by Weller and available from Fred Perry in very limited numbers later this month. In fact, it’s expected to sell out as soon as it hits the shelves. The £250 to spend at the online Fred Perry store might come in useful too.
The competition is hosted over at our sister site Modculture, so get on over there via the link below and you could be walking away with something very special.

We told you a while back how we loved the designs of the Shinzi Katoh large tote bags. And as we’re convinced you’ll love them too, we are offering two large tote bags to give away to two lucky readers.
Yes, Shinzi Katoh has offered us two of its top sellers – the Bambi Deer In The Wood and the Coeur de pomme. Both offer a cool design, internal magnetic clasp, two internal pockets and strong padded canvas handles.
If you were to buy one, it would cost you £27. Or you could win one simply by emailing [email protected] with the subject ‘Shinzi’ and your name and location in the body of the message. That’s all – good luck!
Note that the competition closes on 5th June 2008 and only one entry is allowed per customer. All entries and data will be destroyed at competition end. One bag per winner, allocated at random by Retro To Go.
The Who – in conjunction with the Teenage Cancer Trust – is currently running a competition to win The Who’s Magic Bus – and it is a real bus.
Well, it’s actually an original (but customised) Volkswagen T1 panel van from 1965, signed by both Roger Daltrey (patron of the Teenage Cancer Trust), and Pete Townshend.
You have to pay £5 to enter (with proceeds going to the charity) and answer a ridiculously easy question. And as a bonus, all entrants get a free download of a previously unreleased live performance of The Who’s ‘Magic Bus’ performed during the International Bus Meeting in Hannover in October 2007. If you are feeling lucky, the link below takes you to the band’s competition page.
