Award Season

I did manage to pick up a generous award from the great Alex J Cavanaugh – it’s his throw-Rusty-a-bone-award-for-seriously-disturbed-online-buddies, I thank him for it.

It is the 7 x 7 Link award... I don't know what that is. But, I promised myself that I would not ignore the next one that was given to me, and I mean to honor that promise. I'd hate to label myself a liar. 

Part of the rules is to link to seven of my own posts that... oh... I get it now.... uh, where was I? Let's see, link to seven of my own posts that are:

Most Beautiful: Easy, the one were I posted a doodle and then compared myself to Leonardo Da Vinci. Seriously. How's that for confidence?

Most Helpful: Well, there was the one post where I explained why any aliens that visit earth would be itching to wipe us all away. How is that helpful? I don't know.

Most Popular: By pageviews it's that youtube video about the necronomicon. And that's in a huge landslide, nothing else is even close. My most commented was this months Insecure Writer's Support Group post that was born from the mind of Alex J Cananaugh, of course.

Most Controversial: Still sitting in my draft folder, I haven't the balls to post it. It's sitting there, mocking me for being such a big sissy. 

Most Surprisingly Successful: I guess my post about a typical day of me editing.

Most Underrated: Well, I've got years of posts that no one has ever read, I did enjoy rereading the month of September of 09 when I went on a diet... it starts here

Most Prideworthy: Have I ever written a Prideworthy post? I doubt it, but I do think this one was cool.

I had fun going back and re reading so many of my old posts. I used to rant about technology run amok a lot. Weird. Anyway, thanks Alex. 

I'm to pass this award along to others now. Well, let's see. I'll choose three folks that I think all deserve way more attention than they get. Whether or not they care about this award coming from me is irrelevant, please go visit these guys:

They all make me think about stuff. And I appreciate them for it. 

By the way, if anyone has ever wondered what Alex looks like, I did some checking and no one knows. So I've posted an artist's rendition based on clues he's left about the internet.

I am Alex! Hear me Rock!

So Alex is really Ted Nugent? Kill it and grill it, baby! And thanks for the award. I'll have to do some research and post it during one of the blog's slack days, like Tuesday.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Dude! I dig it. And crap, no - not Ted Nugent! I don't spend weeks in the woods without a shower.
Cool the support group post was a hit for you.
You're no more disturbed than the rest of us. Scary thought, huh?
And there really is a photo of me on my blog...

So, if I give you an award, I can make you do stuff? Cool! j/k

Love Nugent! Seen him live, met him in person, very cool dude!

I got passed this award by Tim Riley at Life of Riles. I'll get er done this weekend and kill two birds with one stone.

Andrew said...

Oh, wow! Thanks! Hmm... now, I have to really think about this one, and we're moving, and I have Alex's movie thing on Monday, and I have about 5 posts lined, so it may be a couple of weeks before I write this one up, but I'll get to it eventually. Unless I forget. :( Which, I hope, I don't. It's actually a theme I'd like to do.
I'm not sure my wife would agree that I need -more- attention, though. Which is not to say that she wouldn't like me to be making more sales on my book. Even more so than me.

Congratulations on the award!

Alex reminds me of Sebastian Bach. Congratulations on your award, it is well deserved!

Elliot MacLeod-Michael said...

That is some of Da Vinci's finest glam rock work.

Congrats on the award, Rusty. And I love your picture of Alex. I must say I've never pictured him like that. If he ever posts his real picture I'll be shocked. :)
