Big announcement, everybody:
***Brainyflix.com is now GotBrainy.com!***
The main reason for this change is that we’ve been doing more than just ‘flix’ for the past few months. So we wanted a name that reflected all the stuff we’ve been doing to help you get brainiererer… er.
That said, the name change does not mean that we’re stopping with the videos! In fact, we’ve got our vocabulary video contest happening now:
***Compete to win $600 by making a funny video about an SAT word***
- We’ve already begun accepting submissions! The deadline is 3/15/2010.
- Anyone can enter, and we’ll have prizes for runner-ups and iTunes songs for anyone who submits 3 videos.
- If you need to boost your grade, ask your teacher if s/he’ll give you extra credit for it.

To get you in the spirit of the holidays, we thought we’d share some inspired Brainypics with y’all. Enjoy!

Good job, everybody! You created over 540 Brainypics last week, which beat the previous record by about 100 pics. Wow. And we were quite impressed by those of you up for the challenge of imagining fake conversations. Clearly, you guys are as crazy as we are, if not moreso. Hahaha.

I ABHOR Halloween so much that it makes me barf.
We definitely do not share the sentiment in this classic Brainypic. In fact, we want to celebrate this super fun holiday. We’re looking for Brainypics with tricks, treats, great costumes (not so great costumes), pumpkin carving, candy gobbling & more.
We’ll pick the 5 best Brainypics submitted between Monday and Sunday at noon to compete for our cash prize. Even if you aren’t picked, remember that you can earn an iTunes song for every 5 Brainypics you create. Good luck!
