Weapons of Mass Distraction. That's exactly what I need right now. I'm betting that quite a few of you feel the same way.
That is why I am unveiling the ASV Best of the 90's Pop Culture Awards.
This is all the fault of VH1, which is presenting it's I Love the 90's series
starting next week.
Here's how it works. Each day I will announce a new category. I'll take nominations all day for that specific category. Eventually, I'll add up the nominees and present a very unscientific poll to come up with the final winners. The categories will be the usual; Best of books, movies, music, video games and whatever else comes to mind. I'll probably do a Worst Of award as well for reach category. I'm open to suggestions. It will pretty much run the same way I ran the video game awards
: at my whim.
I'm not going to be bothered with breaking down each category into genres. Just don't have the time or patience for that. Besides, who really cares about the best disco album of the decade?
We're going to start right here, right now, with albums of the 90's. I already blogged this subject before and you can find my own nominees right here
(just scroll down).
The nomination process goes like this: Pick your favorite albums from the 90's (no more than three, please) and put them in the comments. You may include commentary if you so desire, which may come in handy at final voting time.
Easy enough, right? Let the Nirvana v. Pearl Jam bickering begin. Nominations open until midnight tonight. Tomorrow brings a new category and the best album finalists.
