last year, pitchfork beat us but i think we have a really good chance of winning this year. since last year, we've been on MTV, put out a compilation album, organized some good shows (including our CD release party), had a glowing writeup in the new york times, Ben Gibbard from Death Cab for Cutie plugged us in Wired, and we've been kicking all kinds of ass with the quality of posts there.
so go vote for us and tell all your friends to vote for us. also vote for Jesu as metal album of the year even though i wouldn't really call it metal. as i said last year, we consider it an amazing honor just to be mentioned on the same page as all these great artists. being nominated on the same page as Jesu for me is particularly wonderful.
at the very least, i would like to see mfr kick the pants of myspace (who were recently bought for $580 million dollars by Rupert Murdoch. i have long hated Fox, but now it's personal.
