hey gang,

i'm sure that it has been on your mind lately as they've been starting to pop up on the blogs, so let's talk Best of 2009. we'll be making lists and i'll maybe be tallying up the results. voting will open on 11/28 and close on 12/19.

in addition to the typical best of thing, i was hoping to revive the Alt/Indie Forum and User Awards. i think that the last time this was done was something like 2006. i hoping that it will be fun times for all.

however, we aren't going to vote in this thread, this thread will just be for category suggestions.

so far i have:

Best of 2009

Best Band of 2009
Best Album of 2009
Best Song of 2009
Best Debut Band
Worst Hyped Act
Best Album Art
Best Reissue
Best EP
Weirdest News Story
Most Disappointing Breakup
Most Joy Inducing Comeback
Best Record Label
Band Most Likely To Blow-up Next Year


Alt/Indie Forum and User Awards

is this just for indie and alternative?
They made me do push ups in drag

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

Don't dress as a whore, he'll thump you.

I'm a firework, primed to go off

good call on that one. i'm also thinking of a category where it would just be top 5 live shows of the year, but i wouldn't end up tallying it.

sort of. primarily for regular users of alt/indie, but it would be ok if someone included the new Jay-Z album on their list. so really, i would prefer if the list didn't turn into people from random parts of UG voting for whatever ridiculous metal albums came out this year.

B-b-but I don't have one right now. It got wrecked and I haven't gotten a new one yet.

Maybe Mr. Selleck can persuade you to reconsider?
