DaRK PaRTY Wins Coveted Dardos Award
Media Alerted, Obama Sends Citation, U.N. to Hold Parade
BOSTON _ The DaRK PaRTY ReVIEW, the elite cultural and literary blog setting the standard for quality and typos, today announced that it was awarded the coveted Dardos Award (whatever that is). The award was bestowed on DaRK PaRTY by Flickhead, a cinema and film blog that likes to post pictures of hot-looking actresses to drive up image searches to its site.
The award is described as:
“The Dardos Award is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web.”
Award winners are also required to have a pulse.
"I'm thrilled," said GFS3, editor and publisher of DaRK PaRTY. "After getting our asses ground up like rotten hamburger in the recent voting for the 2008 Weblog Award for Best Culture Blog, this honor may help us save face. I won't bore you with the details of the rigged voting on the Weblog Awards. Everyone knows they're all bastards over there anyway."
In his acceptance speech in front of his hallway mirror (unshaven and still wearing pajamas), GFS3 heaped praise and gave his five nominations for blogs that he thinks deserve the distinction of a Dardos Award. DaRK PaRTY's list of five blogs are as follows:
Ward 6: One of the most literate, fascinating reads on writing and fiction that you'll find on the Internet. Every time I visit, I get lost in the beautiful writing and thoughtful analysis.
So Many Books: Another book blog that is simply elegant. The passion for the reading life lifts "write" off the screen.
Bill Crider's Pop Culture Magazine: It doesn't get much funnier than Bill's observations about culture: crime, literature, and celebrities. A daily stop for me.
Zombo's Closet of Horror: If you love horror fiction and movies then this should be a place you visit early and often!
Madam Miaow Says: My new favorite blog even though she kicked my butt in the 2008 Weblog Award for Best Culture Blog. Great writing with a strong voice. What's not to love?
"Yes, I understand that this is like a bad chain letter," GFS3 said. "But that's what society has wrought when it created the Internet. Well, that and easy access to adult entertainments like pornography, gambling, and illegal prescription drug sales."
The five nominees from DaRK PaRTY are now required to acknowledge their Dardos Award on their blogs (and the fact that it came from yours truly) and hand it out to five others who are worthy. This will mean, of course, that every blog on the Internet will win eventually, but let's not get caught up in the ridiculous details.
