*Thanks to all those who voted for I Rock Cleveland in Scene Magazine’s 2008 Best of Cleveland poll. With your help, I Rock Cleveland has been named the Best Local Music blog (See page 48 of the current issue of Scene).
*There’s been a rash of anono-hate over the last 24 hours like this comment, “God… you never cease to amaze me at how just fucking god awful this blog is… ” and this one, “Wow. This post may just contain some of THE MOST cliche obvious bullshit iv ever read. Yeah loser I think we all figued that shit out when we were 15. Get a life dingdong” Dingdong? Ding-dong??? Both were left on posts associated with the ongoing 31 Days of Rocktober feature. I shouldn’t have to say this, but…Rocktober is absured by its nature. It’s a word invented by classic rock DJs who also use phrases like Rocktoberfest, rock block, Rock and Roll 500, and no repeat classic rock weekend. What I write about Rocktober is going to be cliched, absurd, and (hopefully) humorous. (You’ve at least chuckled, or snorted, or guffawed. Right?) If you’re expecting an in-depth analysis on the roots of Rocktober and its impact on modern society then you can always go read, um, well, I don’t think there’s such a thing as a scholoarly discussion of Rocktober and there shouldn’t be. Now, on to more important things, like who should be the king and queen of the Rocktober day parade. I’m thinking Keith Richards and Courtney Love. Any objections?
