Now You're Defeated
And the winners are… Moby (best music) and Mezzoblue (best Canadian). And a whole bunch of other folk in categories I wasn’t nominated in. Still, thank you very much to everyone and anyone who nominated and voted for me. It was a fun ride, but it’s over so let’s all get back to business. However, for today I declare the patron saint of Chromewaves shall be: Susan Lucci.
And I bet I coulda won if I had a street team.
John Darnielle declares Shannon Wright’s new album Over The Sun “Emo Album Of The Year”. That’s meant as praise, by the way. And speaking of Mr Darnielle, today is his birthday – you can send him a gift from his Amazon.com wish list if you like. Link from LHB.
Cause for celebration – The Commitments finally gets the deluxe widescreen DVD treatment, out today. It was a travesty that until now, there was only a feature-less pan-and-scan version on the market. And if you’ve never seen this film, for the love of God go get it.
The crazy title tags you’re seeing on links comes courtesy of Vic. He didn’t program it, but he provided it. It’s neat. Combined with the fading colours mouseover, I have the most ostentatious links on the internet. If I can just get them to make a sound like a choir of angels whenever they’re clicked on, I’m all set.
