Marcello has started counting down his Top 50 albums of 2006; meanwhile, my mate Dymbel is episodically blogging the contents of his annual Best Of The Year mix CD, in a rolling post which expands more or less daily.
Diamond Geezer spotted an Olympic cock-up; the newspapers were alerted; the council apologised. Ever the provocateur, DG is now arguing in favour of closing 20% of Britain’s post offices.

JonnyB has been nominated for “Best UK Blog” by a bunch of yee-hah, woo-for-war neo-cons. As a result, a concerted collective attempt is being made to get him to win, thus striking a blow for… well, I’m not quite sure what, but a blow most certainly would be struck. Oh yes. At the time of writing, he is in second position and rapidly closing the gap on the current leader.

And on a similar theme:
“The Insignificant Awards is the world’s most unheard of blog competition. It’s a place for the undiscovered to be discovered.”
“As the annual weblog popularity competitions begin once more, we at The Insignificant Headquarters wish to praise, encourage and salute the unknown blogs that sit in the unrewarded wilderness. Those blogs that will never be voted for by the masses. Those bloggers who will never be nominated for anything (but should be).”
“Remember the golden rule of The Insignificant Awards: it’s the taking part that counts – not the winning.”
(I wanted to nominate that funny American lady who lost her job and has a daughter, but I couldn’t remember the URL.)
