Tagged again…

December 12, 2007

My new blogging buddy Q tagged me yesterday, but with my net down, I didn’t notice until this morning. As per the rules, I have to perpetuate the life of this action by tagging five others– Hollow Tree, who may make use of any of his multitude of blogs; Sister Novena, who’s losing her mind shelving books at Fnorders and could probably use an entry served up on a platter; Beautiful Biology, who has been known to actually listen to my show; Squublog, who tempts fate with every interstate bicycle-jump; and Hula Seventy, reigning champion of Photobooth Fridays.

Anyways, on to the meme at hand. Just pick five links in the following categories from your previously-written posts. Here’s mine:

Link 1 is a little bit of FAMILY: The Strangest Thing to Say

Link 2 is a little bit of FRIEND: Interview with Sabrina Siegel

Link 3 is a little bit of YOURSELF: Believe it or not, I picked the most vanilla parts.

Link 4 should be YOUR LOVE: These are NOT Photoshopped!

Link 5 can be ANYTHING YOU LIKE:
Dee Snider Saved My Life

An offer you can’t refuse

Music industry/tech collision blog Hypebot has open nominations for music blog awards right now, in four categories. Since nobody sent me any presents to commemorate the one-year anniversary of STARTLING MONIKER some thirteen days ago, I will safely assume you’re all broke.

That’s why I’ve decided you can nominate me for “Best Niche Music Blog” in lieu of sending expensive gifts.

Hypebot prefers that you leave your nominations in the comments area– and I’ve even made it easy for you– just copy-paste the text below and fill in your other 3 nominations. If you’re not registered with them, you may want to send an e-mail instead.

If you enjoy reading my blog, I’d really appreciate it if you could do this. THANK YOU! –DaveX

———-thankyou———–

Update: Noiseblog is now throwing it’s support for niche music blog nomination my way. My blogroll isn’t a suggestion, folks– it’s required reading. Go check it out now!

Update II: Thought I should let you know: my vote for Best Music News is “The Listenerd,” Best Music Discovery Blog is “Mutant Sounds,” and Best Band Blog is “Shakey Ground.” In the case of the latter, it’s not quantity– it’s pure quality.

Go away, please.

In the spirit of blogger-helping-blogger, I’ve written a little something for my good friend at “Hollow Tree Experimental Music Report,” who has been quite busy maintaining his stable of blogs lately.

As much as I like you, I have to ask that you go away now to read it– but feel free to open in a new window if you think you’ll be lonely without me.
