Out Standing in a Field of My Own


The finalists for the 2010 Irish Blog Awards were announced this weekend and Town Full of Losers lived up to its name by losing out in all three categories for which it was nominated. I must admit that I was delighted to be nominated in three categories and I hope to be back next year. Congratulations to all the other nominees and to the finalists in each category. And a big thanks to all the judges and organisers for all the work they put in over the last few months. The winners will be announced at this weekend’s awards ceremony in Galway

It wasn’t all bad news this week, however. Last Tuesday, this blog was added to the list of music blogs at The Hype Machine. This is from their site:

To put it simply, the Hype Machine keeps track of what music bloggers write about. We handpick a set of kickass music blogs and then present what they discuss for easy analysis, consumption and discovery. This way, your odds of stumbling into awesome music or awesome blogs are high.

Cool, eh? I’ve been on the list of another music blog aggregator, Elbo.ws, for the past year and it’s brought a lot of new readers to the site. I’d like to welcome any new readers from The Hype Machine and hope you like what you see. And a big hello to all my old (and not-so-old) readers as well. Here are some tunes to celebrate!
