For the third year in a row, MFR has been nominated for a PLUG Award. This year, they created a new "Best Music Blog" category separate from the "Best Music Website" category. That means that our little operation consisting of a couple college friends with a Movable Type install and a bit of free time isn't competing directly against sites like Pitchfork or MySpace who have, like, budgets and employees and such.
We're always happy just to get nominated. This year maybe we might even win. At the very least, it'll be a pleasant change to lose to someone cool and deserving like brooklynvegan, MOKB, or stereogum instead of the mega-corporate MySpace like we did last year.
