Best Local Music Web Site - 2007
Why don't you just come out and say what this award really is: "Best Site That The Dallas Observer Depends On For Show Listings And News Updates, Since The Observer's Crippled Corporate Sh!tstorm Of A Site Is So Unreliable, Its Own Staff Doesn't Even Use It"?
You guys are more than welcome to pick your "favorite," and I'm sure you're logging on to Pegasus News while catching the hottest new STP cover bands at Firewater, but I'm not letting you get off the hook for tagging these blogs with "unintelligent" and "general stupidity." Maybe you wouldn't be so annoyed by Internet troll comments if you weren't digging through every single one of them at WeShotJR, looking for the next readers' slag against what the Observer's music section has become.
Instead, maybe you'd skip those unnecessary comment pages and pay more attention to the meat of WeShotJR--its incredibly solid interviews, insights and show picks, its ability to spotlight the underground and dance acts that no other outlet--mine included--can keep up with. The site's makers assert themselves as opinionated members of the music community who actually have a vested interest in it. Boy, is THAT stupid.
