Once Again, Ignored by the Academy

The nominations for the 2004 Bloggies are out.

Here’s where I invoke Don DeLillo and Jonathan Franzen on the ways that an artist is cheapened by the presence of an audience.

Or perhaps here’s where I sulk about never being able to elbow my way onto the A-list. (Damn power law.)

Or perhaps here’s where I merely shrug and begin another year of toiling in relative anonymity, content just to get the work done.

  1. Perhaps we should all agree to nominate each other next year? Also they had a category for blogs about music, but not about movies or books?

    Then again, I’m not sure what I’d do with all that fame and fortune…

  2. Um… is this guy who’s tracked-back to me using my blog in order to campaign for his? How positively rude. Like salt, and open wounds. Did he read the entry before pinging?

    Chuck, I do think a minor protest about the category limitations is in order. We demand a “Best Academic Weblog” category! (Hmmm. Now that I think about it, such an award would never be considered legitimate without a weighty and protracted peer-review process. And undoubtedly some yo-yo would wind up writing a snarky newspaper article about the ridiculous things that pass for blogging in the academic universe, and it’d turn into a whole big hoo-ha. So maybe not.)

    Anyway, Liz, thanks. I’d rather be on your list than theirs, any day! 🙂

  3. Heh. No way, dude. I was just reading your site – I’ve read it a few times before, generally off links from blogdex.net or whatever. I have absolutely no intention of ‘campaigning’ to win. Hence why my page says ‘vote Moby’. If I’m up against him and his legions of lizardoid minions, I’m sure there’s very little chance.
