Long time readers may remember this touching scene from around this time last year…
… and so on, and so forth.
Well, it’s that time of year again. The newly rechristened Catholic New Media Awards are up and running, and much like last year… this blog doesn’t stand a chance in hell of winning. Nor should it in any sane world. Was there ever any real possibility that I would actually get more votes than Father Z at What Does The Prayer Really Say? I mean (1) he’s much more informed than I am, (2) he’s much more prolific than I am, and (3) he doesn’t feel compelled to insert rubber monsters, ray guns, or spurting arteries into every one of his posts. (Personally I feel that last one is a serious defect in the good father’s writing style, but I concede that the majority might disagree.) So why should the results this year be any different?
However, to give the little guys like me a chance during awards season, everybody’s favorite blunk drogger over at The Crescat started The Catholic Cannonball awards as a way to have “blog awards for us "minor" bloggers... a blog award not dominated by the usual suspects.” And as it happens, The B-Movie Catechism is indeed up for a few Cannonballs this year. Now personally, I’m not giving it too much thought. I’m happy just to use this blog as a part of working out my own salvation with fear and trembling while providing a few smiles to my fellow Catholic bloggers along the way. In fact, I wasn’t even going to bring the awards up.
But there’s Tor to think of.
It just pains me to see the big guy so sad. So why not go ahead and pop on over to The Crescat on May 3rd when the voting starts and give Tor some love. He knows we probably won’t win this one either, but we gotta get more than 0.003% of the vote, don’t you think? The B-Movie Catechism; where 0.005% of the vote is a moral victory.
