Not to beat the whole Blogathon topic to death (too late, i know), but Crushing Krisis has been nominated in the Best Music Project category of this year’s Blogathon awards. I am nominated along-side Haunted Sky‘s excellent Karaoke project as well as the astounding Pet Rock Stars‘ collaborative writing project, which i sponsored.
I’m truly honored that enough ‘thonners tuned in to Crushing Krisis this year to even make a dent in the vote. I have to say that i was bordering on crushed last year when former blogger Danica (of fame in Tori Amos circles) beat me out for the prize after all the cash, sweat, and tears that went into my project. However, i have no such illusions as to who should win this year, as some excellent sites have already been omitted.
Regular readers (that would be you (unless it’s not)) cannot vote on this award; the Blogathon team decided that a static group of remarkable judges would vote on all categories to avoid the sort of ballot-stuffing that is inherent to most internet voting. B’Thon’s officially suggested listening includes collaborative originals Wait and A Few Bars of Goodbye.
(I would be so bold as to also nominate Hyperbole and Lindsay’s original Reflection as additional examples of the spectacular collaborations our Blogathon team generated, but this would ignore such astounding examples as Lindsay &; Anthony’s definitive Over The Rainbow and Gina’s arresting solo once-off take of November Rain, so it’s nearly pointless to single anything out to begin with. Seriously, have you been listening? The entire track-list is currently living on the sidebar to your left.)
Again, thank you to all who nominated Crushing Krisis for this distinction; i hope that all of you (regular and irregular) will continue to tune in for my weekly Trio concerts starting the week of September 22nd.
