HA - That’s really cool! Thanks for setting it up; it’s looks fun. And thanks to the secret judges - I feel honored to be included in the nominations! Lots of kudos to go around, including TacomaUrbanist for the hours it takes to run the weekly blog and to work on getting the sponsors. And all the photographers who preserve the fleeting work and make the images available to those of us who can’t make it in person.

It has been put in my charge to design some very "valuable" trophies to present to winners of said catagories.

I am open to any ideas you would like to see sitting on your mantle, or holding your toilet paper up on the back of the toilet.

Cheers, it's humpday!

Wow, it's an honor just to be... oh wait... ;)

You know... I had a fully colored Love/253 sketch somewhere I was going to give to Ariel for the Window. I wonder where that vanished to...

Whatever happened to the garfield kid?

by tacomachickadee on 10/23/2008 @ 10:31am
He he -- does that automatically add @Joel413 to the "most overlooked" list? ;) (Next year Joel, next year ... we'll have more entries to choose from then, right?)

by Dave_L on 10/23/2008 @ 10:45am
"...dvd courtesy of Dave L."
I can't claim credit - the handful of DVD's I was able to hand out are courtesy of filmmaker Randy Sparks who wanted to provide copies for you guys. He can make more copies upon request; he's just been busy on another project so only had time to burn a half-dozen. BTW, I didn't know I was going to be interviewed, so my apologies for my incomplete explanation of how it all started. Only recently did I realize how many pieces came together to make it happen.

Presumably he started school and was no longer free for Friday lunch.
