The 2008 Gummy Awards

I got an email from the Stereogum folks this morning, letting me know that the voting is open on the 2008 Gummy Awards and “early returns indicate that I Am Fuel, You Are Friends is a top contender for Best Music Blog.” Eh! Pretty cool.

If you wanna state your piece, do so over at — and everyone who does will be in the running to win the top 50 CDs of the year, as picked by the poll. I’ve played along the last two years and my favorite part is always voting for Indie Rock Crushes because clearly that is a very important topic.


  • Good Luck Heather, you have my vote.

    I enjoyed watching the best web video section. I was tossing up between the flip out by Bill O’Rielly and the 10 minutes of Tom (nutbar!) Cruise on Scientology, but the sprinkler lady got my vote in the end. So simple in imagery but the words are wonderful and she really is crazy.

    Grace Potter got my Rock Crush award. That version of MMJ’s “Golden” you posted recently is just delightful.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
