Fans everywhere are taking a moment at 8:15PM every day, no matter where they are in whatever time zone they happen to be, to raise a toast to the good life with Pura Vida Tequila.<br />The idea of 8:15 was derived while traveling the country on the most recent headlining tour of my band, Godsmack, explains Erna. Because our stage time was at 8:30pm, my band mates and I, and a few girls from the production office would get together around 8:15 every show day and cheers to a shot of tequila. Eventually every shot was cheered by the words, Happy 8:15!!<br />One day before tequila time, Erna received word that one of the girls in production had received some bad news and wasnt having a good day. He made up a sign for her that said, The Now is here, the past is gone, so whatever has happened is already behind you. And just like the Native Americans say, This Too Shall Pass!He hung it on his mirror for everyone to read as words of encouragement and to lift her spirits.And it did.Touched, she shed a thankful tear. Eventually, 8:15 arrived once again! She did her 8:15 shot with the group and had a great night afterwards.At that point I began to write little messages of inspiration and hang them up every day for people to read and look forward to our daily 8:15 tequila toast, continues Erna. It wasnt long before the word started spreading around to other production people and other bands on the tour to meet at Sullys dressing room at 8:15 to do a shot of tequila. I began opening my dressing room door everyday around 8:10 to let friends in, and day after day the group waiting outside my room got larger and larger, spreading through the tour until there were 10, 20, 30 people crammed in my room every night, Sully explains, until 8:15 became a sort of phenomenon.<br />The word of the 8:15 tradition rapidly spread outside of the tour world and was picked up by Stewart Skloss of Pura Vida Tequila and his friend Billy F. Gibbons of ZZ Top. A shipment of award-winning Pura Vida Tequila was promptly shipped to Sully Erna on tour with a message attached that read We applaud your daily affirmations at 8:15 and encourage you to take it to the next level with the best damn tequila in the world. A partnership was born and Pura Vida Tequila joined the rock tradition.<br />Every day at 8:15 people around the world will know its time to grab their Pura Vida Tequila and rock the shots!said Erna. s the new 4:20!</p><p>From <a href="http://www.godsmack.groundctrl.net/">www.godsmack.groundctrl.net</a></p>Wed, 12 Dec 2012 00:05:00 -0800http://www.godsmack.groundctrl.net/news/115953Pura Vida Tequila Stuff to Stuff Your Stocking Contest<div class="_wk mbm"><span class="userContent">There is <em>STILL</em> time to enter the <a href="https://www.facebook.com/PuraVidaTequila">Pura Vida Tequila</a> <em><strong>STUFF TO STUFF YOUR STOCKING</strong></em> Facebook Contest!!<br /> <br /> The winner of the Sully Erna autographed picture and copy of Avalon will be chosen <strong>THIS THURS Dec 13th! </strong><br /> <br /> Enter at the link below.

It was between a GS themed pumpkin carving contest (like we held last year) and a GS themed costume contest. The pumpkin contest won, however we thought, "Why not do both?". So here we are putting both contests out there for all to enter! Please read over the rules carefully and make sure all entries are in by OCT 31 at MIDNIGHT EST. Any entries submitted after that will be disqualified!</p> <p></p> <p>The rules for both contests are as follows:</p> <p><strong>1. GODSMACK PUMPKIN CARVING CONTEST!</strong><br /><br />Let's get into the fall & Halloween spirit the right way! Calling all fans, we wanna see your best Godsmack related pumpkins designs. <br /><br /><em><strong>The winner will receive a prize pack which includes a signed copy of the Live & Inspired CD, a Godsmack Zippo and more!</strong></em><br /><br />1. Each fan gets <strong>ONE</strong> entry each. <strong>PLEASE DO NOT</strong> send in multiple pumpkin designs. If you happen to carve make more than one pumpkin, pick your best design to submit. <strong>People who send in more than one design will automatically be disqualified!</strong> You can however, if necessary, attach a couple pics of your ONE pumpkin design to your entry email. For Example: including a front view and a side view of the pumpkin, so we can see the full design. Also, don't hesitate to include an illuminated photo of the pumpkin as well. A lit pumpkin will help your design really pop and is highly recommended. Just make sure it is only ONE pumpkin design that you are submitting.<br /><br />2. There are <strong>NO AGE LIMITS</strong> for this contest! Everyone is welcome to participate, no matter how young or old. Younger children be careful, we don't want anyone getting hurt. They sell really great and affordable cutting sets that are kid friendly and don't have any sharp edges. These also come with very little saws, that are great for those delicate carving areas and are highly recommended.<br /><br />3. <strong>GET CREATIVE!</strong> Because we held this contest last year, try and avoid themes that have already been over done. Originality is key! We have already seen the poplar GS sun logo done over and over, as well as a voodoo theme. Try picking a Godsmack song that hasn't yet been represented. Make sure the design clearly represents the band or song you picked for your theme. The judges and fans voting, shouldn't have to question your design & how it relates to the band. <br /><br />4. You <strong>MUST</strong> take a pic of yourself with your pumpkin design camera shy people need not apply! By attaching a photo, we can judge fairly & accordingly to all different age groups participating in the contest. We want to make sure it is indeed YOUR design and not just some picture you found off Google! <strong>If you do not include a picture of yourself with your pumpkin entry, you will be disqualified.</strong><br /><br />5. <strong>All entries must be submitted by OCT 31ST at MIDNIGHT EST to godsmackinfo@yahoo.com ! After the contest submission date has passed, we will then pic the BEST 10 pumpkin designs and post them up for all of YOU to take over on the judging. The pumpkin that receives the most "LIKES" within a week via the fans, will be the winner!<br /><br /><em>NOW WHO IS READY TO GET THEIR CARVE ON????? </em></p> <p>______________________________________________________________________________________________</p> <p><strong>2. GODSMACK COSTUME CONTEST!</strong><br /><br />Let's get into the fall & Halloween spirit the right way! Calling all fans, we wanna see your best Godsmack themed Halloween costumes. <br /><em><strong><br />The winner will receive a prize pack which includes a signed copy of the Live & Inspired CD, A Godsmack Zippo and more!</strong></em><br /><br />1. Each fan gets <strong>ONE</strong> entry each. <strong>PLEASE DO NOT</strong> send in multiple entries. <strong>People who send in more than one costume entry will automatically be disqualified!</strong> You can, however, attach more than one picture with your entry.<br /><br />2. There are <strong>NO AGE LIMITS</strong> for this contest! Everyone is welcome to participate, no matter how young or old. <em><strong>YES pets are welcome too.... BUT.... better make it good if you go that route!!</strong></em><br /><br />3. <strong>GET CREATIVE!</strong>Dress either as your favorite band member or a Godsmack related theme. This can be anything from dressing as the girl on the self titled album, to Medusa from the Voodoo video. Think outside the box and get as creative as you want! Props welcomed!<br /><br />4.<strong> PLEASE NOTE: THE DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED DUE TO THE HURRICANE! The new deadline is NOV 9TH at MIDNIGHT EST. Please email submissions to godsmackinfo@yahoo.com !</strong> After the contest submission date has passed, we will then pic the BEST 10 costumes and post them up for all of YOU to take over on the judging.

Despite her busy schedule, she always takes the time to talk to the fans and is more than friendly to everyone she meets. You can't help but love her contagious smile and positive energy.</p> <p>On behalf of our whole Godsmack family, we want to say congratulations to the happy couple! We wish them both an amazing future together and look forward to what's to come.

This time he reviews VHS which is a anthology with multiple directors who each put their own spin on the film.
