Our New BFF: Handcuffs' Brad Elvis
Call it a slick marketing ploy or simply an instance of perfect timing, but following a closely-watched (term used loosely...) and no doubt hotly contested (Tw1tters The Cat , for one, wanted to be the pick) contest, Chicago's Brad Elvis
4,000 thTwitter follower.
No doubt having followed our progress on Twitter as we neared that milestone number, Brad
pounced - like Tw1tters did, but with fingers, not paws - when we announced we would award "fabulous prizes" to our 4,000 th follower.
Brad, sharp eyed BLURT readers may recall, is also a founding member and the "four-handed" drummer for The Handcuffs, who we recently profiled on the site.
obviously had a vested interest in subscribing to our Twitter feed!
also informed us that he
is nearing his
own milestone - his
4,000 th gig, which includes a long musical career with the Handcuffs
and other outfits (among them, The Romantics).

, you rock, your band rocks, and your gifts are en route to Chicago where they will be delivered personally by 8 nubile BLURT interns all in various stages of undress.
