So I've been trying to figure out a way to bribe you guys to vote for me in the thing which I swore I would not care about, but ended up caring about anyhow because I have this fragile ego that would just shatter if I were to lose.
Meryl has offered links in her sidebar
if you vote for her.
Robb is going with the guilt thing
, which worked for me (ok, he gets my vote on merit, too).
Treacher has just given up
and come up with his own sure fire way of winning a poll.
I could go the sleazy route and offer you cleavage, but you've all seen that already and that also leaves out the [straight] female portion of my readership. I would offer some male frontal nudity, but everyone knows that girls really don't like to stare at the male appendage in quite the same way that men like to stare at tits.
Besides, how do you prove that you voted for me? For all I know, you could come over here and lie just to get one of the free lollipops I intended on handing out. Nevermind that
Well, all I can tell you is that out of the top running culture blogs, my blog has the most culture like content
. And if that's not enough to get you scurrying over there to vote for me well, then, I'll just concentrate all my intense link throwing power on people who have the good taste to vote for me
And thus ends my pathetic little cry for attention, which was put here in place of the post I was working on about the Grammy nominations because I'm still trying to figure out if I'm just too hung up on my own definition of rock to see that these choices
in the rock performance category have merit or if the Grammy people are completely out of touch with what rock is supposed to be.
The only category I'll go out on a limb for this year is the best rock album and whatever else Green Day's American Idiot
album was nominated for. It's their best work since Dookie
and deserving of what ever awards it reaps. The epic song Jesus of Suburbia is worth the price of the album alone, but the whole damn thing is excellent and, if listened to back to back with Kerplunk
, shows just how much these guys have matured musically.
Anyhow, vote for me
or I swear, I'll kill a dozen kittens in the next 24 hours.
Look, that was a CULTURE post!
