It now falls to me to exercise my supreme powers and bestow this award upon five other girl bloggers what rock. This responsibility is not to be taken lightly, and was a matter for much soul-searching and sleepless nights (or was that the sprained foot thing?).
My first inclination was to award this to the rockingest girl I know, my very own resident offspring, but alas she shuns the Blogger format in favour of other cooler social networks. "I read it on my mother's blog" are not just misheard Tokyo Police Club lyrics any longer.
So I am instead humbled to touch the sword to the shoulder of the following girl bloggers who display supreme rockism:
Allison: always on the cutting edge, an unerring ear for an insanely catchy tune and a good handclap, and well versed in Brit slang to boot.
Phlegmfatale: cut her teeth on all the classic underground greats, and now supports those subverting the current music scene (ie the divine Leslie and the Lys), always on the ready with a good yarn, and a trained opera singer on top of it all.
Toccata: a multi-talented classical musician herself, she has been keeping me enthralled with her adventures in art and music live from Montreal this summer. She is forgiven for not loving Radiohead by virtue of her love for Great Lake Swimmers and Jarvis Cocker.
Mellowlee: covers all the bases in music, from the blues classics through to the today's tattooed and beehived torch singers, and makes the most amazing punk Christmas cds you will ever hear.
Deb: the queen of classic grunge, and a contender for the Matthew Good supporter of the year award.
You Girl Bloggers are all ROCKIN' (and there are so many others as well, who are equally deserving whom I was not allowed to acknowledge). The task falls to you now, to go forth and honour five other Girl Bloggers what ROCK. Use your powers wisely and for good, not evil.
