And so, phase four of my 12-step, foolproof plan for world domination commences. Wait … is it four or five? … lemme think … start podcast … convert basement into radio and performance studio … get Pluto reclassified as dwarf planetoid … obtain mannequin … gain notoriety as a cultural visionary, thereby obtaining a crystal hockey puck … yeah, phase five!
Yes, it was an honor and a singularly weird experience getting an award from an organization that, while certainly not your enemy, never really had a kind word to say about you in public, and made more than a few snarky quips in private (yeah, the feeling is mutual, so no foul). Maybe it’s not as weird and experience as getting roasted by my friends last month was, but it was weird. It was also very cool that NUVO thought of me, considering our long and tumultuous history of publicly ignoring each other, and privately bitching about each other, for the past decade.
Kat Coplen, who I’m pretty sure would never be accused of being my biggest fan, did the presentation, with my crew whooping and screaming after every sentence (I’m pretty sure we were the only group that did that, but whatever, I did apologize in advance, and this will teach them to ever try to give a legitimate culture award to a bunch of people who go to great lengths to remain amateur and underground.) You can actually catch a video of the whole thing here.
