Jason Statham Poster Contest

I'm announcing a new contest here on Country Caravan. Below are a series of Jason Statham posters. Your job is to guess each of the films that they're from. I promise that I have not altered the images in any way except to Skitch out the titles and co-star names. These are all 100% real posters for different Jason Statham films.

The first one to post the correct answers as a comment on this blog will receive a one-time Country Caravan Shout-Out. Don't think that's worth anything? Remember, Arcade Fire got big because I mentioned them here.

Also, please do not use the Internet to find the answers to these. We're on the honor system here. Let the games begin!

Joining the Causecast Team

I announced about two months ago that I would be leaving to pursue other opportunities. Though I maintain a very good relationship with Mahalo and plan on soon being a stockholder in the company, I felt it was time to take a break and think about what I wanted to do in life.

Much sooner than expected, I've landed a short distance away (you don't know how literal this is) at the socially conscience start-up Causecast. I'll be acting as their Managing Editor, working to add inciteful, thoughtful and original writing to their already deep and impressive index of videos and nonprofit connections. I hope, through this position, to further contribute great content to the Internet, in the form of essays from notable figures and writers who are truly passionate about causes. I also hope, quite selfishly, to give back to my community in the form of time and commitment (money is, after all, a bit scarce for us all right now).

Causecast is up to some very exciting things and I'm pleased to be a part of the team. A few employees will be at SXSW next week for the Mustache March. Check out the latest video:
