I'm a winner! (At least, that's what I keep telling myself)

Woo hoo! Midnight Sun is on a roll, gang: We just won Best Local Blog in City Paper's Best of Baltimore 2009 readers' poll.

Dig it.

Man, and to think -- I didn't even vote for myself! Thanks, everybody who did vote for me. Before I could even make a Kanye West comment, someone beat me to it. Awesome!

Please join me in a cubicle victory dance to "True Skool" by Coldcut. "Cooler than cooler than cool."

We are The Champions by Queen would have been a choice for your victory dance.

Kanye West. I wonder what Beyonce has to say on all this? An endorsement that WAS attention getting, but is of mixed value.

Any man that can rock some Coldcut is okay in my book!

They like you. They like you. They really like you!

I think their Best D-bag Award in the media section is hilarious.

Congratulations!! you've earned it!
i always enjoy reading this blog and it's comments/commenters. never a dull moment!!

about the kayne west thing. don't you think it curious that he does this right before an appearance on the new Leno show where Jay gets to ask him "what would your mother think?" ? staged perhaps?

You've earned it, Sam. Congrats! Now go immerse yourself in the Colossal Shrimp buffets, ice sculptures and carving stations at the City Paper party.
