Thank you folks for helping spread the word on Immi! We love her as much as you all do and are excited and privileged that she is helping launch our brand new HotFlash technology while spreading the word of her amazing upcoming album and video! HotFlash is an experimental system so feel free to email us with any problems you might have. Our goal is to provide you a fun experience inside the world of Imogen that also helps to increase awareness of her brilliance. With your help, we hope to achieve both.
Can't see the HotFlash? Several people have had trouble seeing the HotFlash due to various security configurations, firewalls, etc. To help you all out...
1. Make sure you have Flash Player 7.0 or higher. You can download that here if you do not have it.
2. Make sure your email can see Flash. If you are in Webmail, or have high security email, you may see a banner or text link. Click on it and that will launch the HotFlash.
3. If you are in Outlook/Outlook Express and see a yellow bar with a message about "Active-X", click it. It will give you the option to view the Flash.
4. If you have Flash 7.0 and all else fails, go directly to the HotFlash at: http://subcultureint.com/hotflash.php
We tried to jam so much fun stuff in this little envelope for you that the seams burst out! There was a small bug early on in the Flash for the contest. This made it difficult for residents without a numeric zip code to register. That has been fixed. Rest assured, if you sent out any emails in the beginning, all points have been accumulating and counted. We have been watching to make sure.
To make it even easier (and fun) for you to compete, we are working on a version that will launch tonight or tomorrow that will make it much simpler to send out invitations. This will include a web browser version of the Send form, Signup form and Ranking forms. Now you will not have to squint as much. Watch this sticky for the link.
Rules & How To Play
To make sure this is clear to all, you must first register for the contest to play. You accumulate points for each person you send the HotFlash to that actually opens and views it. So be sure and encourage your friends to watch it after you’ve sent it. To count, emails must be sent from inside the contest send form (meaning after you have logged into the contest). If you click the HTML link outside of Flash that says “Click here to forward this email to a friend”, this is outside the contest and the points will not count.
If you have any questions on the rules of the contest, be sure to check them out here:
Streaming Audio and Video
We want Immi to sound and look as good as she can (and that is very very good!). As such, the audio and video streaming files are large. As with any streaming media, best to watch/listen from a high bandwidth connection.
Haven't found the clues yet? They are in there! Just keep looking and you'll have some nice, bright shiny tones to make your friends jealous.
Buying the digital download?
The link to buy the digital downloads from iTunes launch iTunes automatically. Here are the links to Immi's store and Itunes in case you want to enter them manually:
Immi Direct (better)
Itunes (still good)
