UPDATE Best Week Ever

According to VH1, my fellow Central Vermont blogger and dear friend, K, is having the Best Week Ever. His blog Analog Giant, was mentioned today on LISTEN UP: Your Daily Dose of the Best Music Ever. I'm new to BWE's blog - just used to seeing the washed up comedians hold on to any hopes of a career on the old tube.

The funny thing is the music that they liked off his site was the latest Pearl Jam leak, Parachutes. How hilarious and so VH1. I can't wait for the readers who came over from BWE to start reading his political rants. Boy are those comment sections about to get interesting.

Speaking of local bloggers getting noticed, Flatlander over at False 45th has received the honor of Seven Days' Post o' the Week. His post from last week talked about the high number of indie music junkies blogging from Barre/Montpelier.

And oh, the picture? The tag line is "Weren't you flying back to Bombay Today?" Love it. That's the type of day that K and Flatlander are having. They are all sorts of "F Bombay, I'm just going to paddle shirtless below this here castle while the chick catches rays. You picking up what I'm laying down? Bombay another day."

UPDATE:
Looks like K's week's getting better and better. He got the BWE mention once again, this time for the Gorillaz' covering the Editors' "Feel Good Inc." The funny thing is that I sent the track over to K a week ago after I got it from Bob who writes the great music blog Extrawack! He shares the majority of the credit, even though he probably got it from someone who got it from someone... Nothing's original on ye olde blogosphere.

    Best week ever indeed. I should change the content of the post. So far only my pearl jam nut friend and my uncle have commented.

    I suspect most people are going to just come and download then leave instead of "exploring" the other "content." I go zero comments from yestday so as you might expect VH1'ers might be a bit brain dead.

    Thanks for the post kid ;)

    The nice part of my post getting chosen as the post 'o the week is that it has links to all five of the blogs in it. Hopefully, everyone will get a few extra visitors out if it.

    k, you jerk the VH1 folks around and put a link to MuchMusic in the post.

    That should read "you should jerk" and not "you jerk".

    Missing "should" makes quite a difference.

    The sad part about mentioning MuchMusic is that only a very small portion of the country would get that. There's so little Canadian knowledge below the boarder states.

    I imagine you two dancing around to that TRex song. Such a beautiful image.

    Ha! Thanks for the credit. I actually got it from a friend who prides himself on his collection of good cover songs. Remarkably, he's not a blogger. I think he, my Mom, and my wife are the last 3 people in North America without a blog.
