The Blind Dialog contest.

The Blind Dialog contest. This is a hilarious contest. And how can you resist putting an entry in, when the grand prize is a Lego Ninja Fire Fortress?

MTV Video Awards nominees have been announced

MTV Video Awards nominees have been announced...and there's no "best alternative video" category anymore. What the hell! Granted, MTV has never been noted as a supporter of good music (remember 120 minutes? that got the boot a while ago), but seeing those early "alternative" bands rock out on screen was what initially got me into music as a kid - I cringe at the thought that there's a whole new batch of 11 year olds out there who see the guitar as nothing more than a prop in a choreography routine.

At least I can take solace in the fact that Weezer is finally touring the East Coast - all is not wrong with the world.

The Oscars TM AMPAS will NOT consider any movie that was first shown on the Internet.

Looks like our firends at HowWrong Productions, the creators of "Jesus! The Semi-Animated Sorta-Movie!" have beenShafted.
Now they'll have to rent a theater for the sequel: "Jesus' Big Score", and then probably nobody'll show up.. cause they'll all be at The Schmolympics!
You owe me, Talbot. Big time.

MacArthur Foundation genius grants

MacArthur Foundation genius grants -- I didn't get one this year, but Ben Katchor did. So did some other astonishing people, such as Patricia J. Williams, of whose column "Diary of a Mad Law Professor" in The Nation I am a particular fan.

Did everybody else completely ignore this? Or am I the only one who didn't know that tonight is the 5th Annual Cool Site of the Year ceremony? Why do they even bother anymore?

Blame Phil Collins?

Blame Phil Collins?
We knew Blame Canada wouldn't win, and to be fair, Phil probably deserved it - my real question is "what did you think of the 'Blame Canada' production number?" It was the only reason I watched tonight (not being a big awards show guy), and I'm just curious to hear what other people thought of it. Did Robin Williams wreck it? What about the mounties chorus-line? Did anyone else think he was going to do the entire song with the tape over his mouth?
My only other Oscar observation: Angelina Jolie seemed thrilled and suprised to get Best Supporting Actress. Do you think that she would have gone with the Elvira look if she expected to win?

And the oscar for best salvage man goes to...

And the oscar for best salvage man goes to... That didn't take very long. There's not much you can do with highly publicized, stolen goods, especially when they're barely worth more than scrap metal when melted down.

Tonight's SXSW web award event

Tonight's SXSW web award event was a fun one. And unlike that lame primary election last week, pretty much all my favorites won in their respective categories. Ironminds won the Best Current Events site (odd category for them, but there's great writing there that deserves recognition), won an award, Chickenhead won for humor, and a couple of webloggers got some well-deserved awards as well.

The Razzies

The Razzies dis-honor the worst achievements in film for 1999. My personal favorite, Heather Donahue in Blair Witch. Forget the Oscars.

This year's list of Oscar nominees seems way, way off.

This year's list of Oscar nominees seems way, way off. But here's my big five predictions given their lame choices (along with my personal faves if I could choose anything): best pic: American Beauty (Magnolia), Actor: Denzel Washington (John Malkovich), Actress: Hilary Swank (same), Supporting Actor: Tom Cruise (Philip Hoffman), and Supporting Actress: Angelina Jolie (same, she was amazing).

A List Apart announced the winners

A List Apart announced the winners of their design contest. There were no surprises here, when I first heard about the contest, there was one site that came to mind, and they won the grand prize. I was kind of surprised that I had seen all the award winning sites before in my own travels, but hadn't explored much of them. Especially, I had found it a couple months ago, but couldn't handle the long intros and preloads, it seemed grossly overdesigned and I left after seeing two pages and haven't been back since.
