Gutsy Move

My kilt-wearing buddy, Adam Graham, has added an interesting twist to the 2006 Bloggies.

"The blog awards, particularly in the field of politics are an ideologial monolith. Still, I’ve got to tell you I’ve been getting some hits off the awards page (39 so far). I’m not nominated, but I’m giving the prize for the political blogs, a copy of the Screwtape Reports."

&quo;You read it right folks, Daily Kos, Talking Points Memo, Crooks and Liars, Firedog Lake, and Wonkette are battling out for an award where the biggest prize (other than bragging rights) is MY book, a book by a Conservative Christian Republican."

"The humor and irony of this situation is thick. I was prepared for the possibility of a Liberal blog winning the Bloggies when I offered it, but not the absolute certainty of it."

"Of course, whoever wins, I’ll send the book to. Will they want it? Will they accept delivery?"

Be sure to read the rest of the post as well as the follow-up posts to find out how the left wing of the blogosphere has reacted thus far.

For the record, I am not a Republican, nor am I a Democrat. I am a disgruntled Independent who registers with whichever party is politically useful at the time. If Pennsylvania had open primaries I wouldn’t have to do that. But I digress. My point is that I have no horse in this race. I’m just interested to see how this thing plays out.

Don’t Blame Me, I Voted For Ales Rarus!

It was rigged! I demand a recount! I’m taking this to the Supreme Court!

Not. 😉

I’d like to thank everyone who voted for this blog in the 2005 Wizbang Weblog Awards. We didn’t win, but we made a good showing. Maybe next year we’ll take home the trophy. 😉

I’d also like to thank all of my guest bloggers, frequent commenters, and lurking readers, without whom this blog would just be cranky ol’ me pontificating to crickets.

Be sure to visit my worthy competitors. Also, check out Radical Civility. The blogger there has been reviewing the finalists for Best Religious Blog.

Stay tuned for the 2006 Catholic Blog Awards in January…

A Humble Example

The following lyrics and unattached music received an honorable mention in a carol writing competition for the Amadeus Choir near Toronto, Canada. (If someone wants the music, please email FD to let me know where to email the .pdf. If performed, I request that you let me know the performance date and location.)
