PB Fic Awards, Fun and Rambling  
The PB Fic Awards first-round voting closes tonight, July 7, at Midnight EST. Please cast your votes if you haven't already done so. On my f-list alone, clex_monkie89, mooyoo, lissa_bear, pamalax, fiddleyoumust, alazysod, aspensnow, quincykat and I all have nominations... Step up, people, please!

Sample fun-- maybe: Paint Like Jackson Pollock. Now this is interesting. Every mouse click changes the paint color, and every time the cursor stops you make a blob. However... I quickly discovered that I wanted more control over my Jackson Pollock painting. Yes, I realize how weird that sounds. The reality was, "Hey! I don't want that color! Or that one! Man, this sucks!" and "I want to start my splatter over here." (there's no picking up the cursor. Every move leaves paint.) And "Damnit-- another blob!" But please, really .... sample for yourselves. ;)

Randomly, PudMonkies and Scabrous would make good names for Punk bands. However, I'm thinking Death By Decay and Yesterday's Headlines are more alterna-band names...

It seems to be mostly "swamp" colors for me, with the occasional orange, turquoise and purple. Then back to swamp.

Any reds/yellows for you?

I actually get lots of orange. The greens and turquoise actually weird me out when I get them.

Done! Good luck everyone.
Whoo-hoo! Thank you. :D

How about The Million Dollar Cowboys for a country band?
I'm not such a country music fan, so my mind goes to bad, bad places like Twang Chicky and Range Riders and stuff like that. Devil Horse Eh-- that one wouldn't go over well with the Christian audience at all or Sixgun Soldiers sound good to me too, but what do I know? :0

I realize I've barely been around LJ in the past few months, but I had no idea I was nominated for this! I mean, I'd seen this in your journal, and I was like, "cool!" but...what? I'm all flattered and stuff, lol!

At least one was nominated, "Insults and Bar Soap." Now, why something like "Shiver Through Autumn" wasn't brought up, I don't know. It would be nice next time around if, like for The Lawrence Awards (Supernatural-- weeding out voting is going on for that too), we had an ongoing listing of what had been nominated, so that we could add nominations in stage 1 for things no-one's touched before (you get one nomination per category), or so we could see *cough* what other people seem to think that category is. :0
