Announcing our Choose Love Contest

Choose Love Contest

Love cannot be constrained, modified or conditioned by anything which exists, for it has the nature of creation.

Love is never dependent on any specific or particular form, detail or quality.

As might be expected from looking at a Launch Box, we’ve done a lot of thinking on the topic of Love. We believe that Love is more enabling of choice than any other emotion. It’s an integral part of the Magic–Flight community and is infused into each product we design and make by hand.

Around this time of year, romantic love—the chocolate-and-roses kind—seems to draw the collective attention, but we want to invite you to take some time to appreciate and celebrate Love in all of the forms it takes. We’re asking you to share how you choose, create, and express Love in your world. To help motivate and inspire you, we’re giving our three favorite entries via Instagram and Facebook their choice of one of four prizes: a Maud-Dib Concentrate Box Kit, or our new bubbler, the Orbiter (coming out soon), a Power Adapter 2.0, or any Launch Box Kit that we offer.

HOW TO ENTER:

After some consideration, share with us an expression of your Love. What does it look like? Does it come to you through music and sound? What words come to mind? Who or what are the things that enrich your life on a profound level?

Examples of creative expressions focusing on Love as the theme, inspiration, or subject include:

  • Language: a haiku, poem, or other creative use of words
  • Visual: a photograph, painting, collage, or other visual representation
  • Sound: an original composition or performance using sounds
  • Surprise us!

JUDGING AND VOTING

The last day to submit an entry via Facebook or Instagram is Wednesday, February 12th at 11:59 PM Pacific Time. Our staff will assemble and judge all entries on Thursday, February 13th, and winners will be announced on Instagram and Facebook Friday, February 14th.

Guest DJ Friday at Magic-Flight


 

Magic-Flight, live from the Launch Pad every Friday.

Get ready for the weekend with Magic-Flight’s DJ Friday – a stream of imaginative world, and electronic music broadcasted LIVE from Magic-Flight HQ.  The stream begins at 1 PM and goes until approximately 4:20 PM every Friday.

Whether you’re into House, World music, Drum-and-Bass, Glitch, Future, Techno, Hip-Hop or Reggae, you can be certain that DJ Friday will have a little something for you. All of our live sets feature a live chat with our guest DJ and fellow Magic-Flight fans and employees. Come hang out with us and get a taste of what it’s like to be a member of the Flight Crew!

DJ Friday began nearly a year ago as a company-wide celebration of the week’s hard work coming to an end and as a showcase of the talented DJs and producers that work within our company and community. We constructed a DJ booth in the corner of our wood shop (right) and have been striving to continually improve and evolve the program ever since. We’ve got the next several months booked with DJ’s from many genres of music and all walks of life, check out all of our upcoming acts on our Mixlr page.

To join the crowd and the chat, head over to http://mixlr.com/magicflight.  For those of you with an iPhone, you can download the Mixlr iPhone app and stream DJ Friday on the go. The app gives you a push notification whenever we go live so you never have to miss out on the fun!

We hope to see you on Friday!
