Maybe a pretty lopsided loop.

That I'm nominated? Me too! An honour though to be named alongside Add Higga and Mr. Jud Crandall. Looking forward to the event.

crazy - thanks also to the folks who voted various things involving my involvement!

also, that list is awesome - i dunno what y'all are talking about! the only disappointment or confusion i see looking at that is realizing how much i've missed out on the little corner of the SJ scene that add higga and the shinjuku mad characters have been carving out for themselves!

anybody (including myself) who has not yet gone to one of their sunstar lounge free festivities has fallen behind and needs to catch up 'round these here parts. that's what you call new blood cats, and without it we're just stale schmuck scene masturbators. same goes for great acts like the telecasts and frigger that have come out of the woodworks this past year - new faces on stage also mean new faces in crowds and new voters on polls like these, so embrace it folks or git out the waaaay! :)

I should probably correct myself to say I am very pleased overall. A couple of categories surprised me a bit and I don't know how I feel about them.

I think having a double post about tonights show is worthy, so I'll bump the Nominees as well.

See you tonight.

I was just telling Adam what an honour it is to be nominated for a second year. Thanks to everyone who supports my music and took the time to vote for me. I sincerely appreciate it.....

I'll also take the opportunity to say thank you on behalf on my mates in Penny Blacks. We're tickled dink to be in such great company.

Thanks adam!

Here's my acceptance speech (since I couldn't give it in person last night):

10 years ago, just weeks before my 30th birthday, I played some tunes on my turntables for the first time outside my house at a little club on Sydney Street called Mars Bar.. Now ten years later, I'm much, much younger, and have won my first award as a DJ. Many thanks to fellow nominees Add Higga and Jud Crandall, all of the admins and members of giraffecycle.com, my mom and dad who think I don't really do anything, and to my wife and daughter who also think I don't really do anything, but in a good way. Thank you.
