it's going to be a smackdown!

Enjoy bloodsports? Like seeing guys bash each other over the head with folding chairs?

Of course you do.

That's why this blogger vs blogger death match is going to be so much fun. A while ago I got an email from Mike over at bloginterviewer inviting me to tell them about my bad self. Folks visiting their site can vote on the blog that most tickles their fancy and the top three each month take home sacks and sacks of money ($25, $15, and $10).

After much procrastinating, I finally submitted said interview and it is now up on their site. You can go here to check out my stab at shameless self-promotion, look around at some of the other blogs, and then vote for the one you love best.

Here's the best part: I am being pitted against Splotchy in this contest. That mofo is going down! I'ma cut him up so bad, he's gonna wish I never cut him up so bad!

I admit I am a little perplexed by the odd random links that have been imbedded in my interview. My favourite is the one that has been linked to my line about posting pictures of my cat; it's for Texas tourism. That appeals to my sense of absurdity.

And since we are all about the maiming and the gouging and the drawing of blood today, what better time to admit that summer is over and get back down to the businesss of celebrating the beauty of the tagline?

Yes kiddies, I'm bringing sexy The Labia Awards back.

The award for best label of the week goes to:
for her tag
"the top o' my avatared head"
.
Step on up and accept your well-deserved Labia, Beth. It's lovely to see such eloquent use of the word "avatared".

And thank God you have shortened that word "of". I don't know how many times I have said to myself I wish I didn't have to type that muthafuckin "f" every time I type the word "of". Beth, you have done the world a great service.

Haha The labia awards!!!!!!

I've had a shittt day - thanks for making me laugh!

Splotchy said...

Should I just give up right now?

I didn't win the taint wars, I lost out on the gay video wars.

I have no illusions that I will win this one.

Of course, anyone that votes for me will receive a share of the proceeds. Vote early and often!

BeckEye said...

Ah, how I've missed the Labia awards. I've missed winning them too. Well whatever, Beth can have the Labia. I have Glenn.

Why do I have to choose between two blogs on my blogroll? It's like choosing between my children!! But, Barbara was born first...

BeckEye said...

Oh, I submitted my interview to Mike too. I have to go see if I'm up yet. I hope he doesn't end up pitting us against each other! Because I may seem nice now, but I'll go all America's Next Top Model on your ass.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I'm sorry you've had a crap day, Danny, and glad I could help alleviate that somewhat. You realize of course that you have offended me greatly, as the Labia Awards are deadly serious and very highly regarded amongst those who take the labeling of blogs to an art-form.

Well now it looks as though Beckeye is entering the fray, Splotchy. We may have to start drawing up teams and doing some tag matches. Have you got your costume ready? I'm still sewing Canadian flags onto my bra for mine.

Barbara was indeed born first, and it is prudent to never forget that little fact, Beckeye. It's generally the first born blogger who go on to positions of great power.
And I hate to tell you this, but once your interview is up, it's every blogger for him or herself. If you are going to go all Tyra Banks on me, I am afeared for my life. I'm investing in some brass knuckles.

Zed said...

I voted for you Barbara, but now I see Splotchy is offering $$$. Will you be making the same sort of offer? Not that I want to be shallow or anything ... Is Beckeye offering cash?

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Awww, thanks for the vote, Zed, you're a sweetheart!

I have to poopoo Splotchy's offer to share the winnings - $25.00 doesn't go too far. What I plan to do is spend far more than $25.00 in order to send everyone who requests one a commemorative mix cd, along with some other highly sought after swag and a very nice thank you note.

Beckeye has not yet said if she is offering bribes.

One starving musician came by to say: Long live The Labia Awards!

Thanks once again for the comment Barbara - yours and other comments have had an immensely positive effect.

Cheers!

Yoko's off the stereo and Musik Von Harmonia is on. Great music to wind down to:

Deb said...

Go got 'em Barb. I voted for you....I love the way you describe your blog. If people don't vote for you, just based on that alone, then they're stupid.

justacoolcat said...

I voted for you before you made this post. Ha!

Beth said...

YAY!!!!!!!!!!! My labia and I are so honored, as is the top o' my avatared head.

Mike has requested my interview, too. Should I do it? I'd love to go head to head with that Tilbrook-stealin' vixen BeckEye.

JustRun said...

Summer is NOT over. Take it back.

And best of luck in the Site Which I Cannot Visit While at Work stuff. :)

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Hi J Elliot, welcome! We're big fans of musicians on this site, the starvinger the better,so glad you dropped by. And I am chuffed to hear that the Labia Award meets with approval.

I'm so relieved to hear that, Danny, and it's a good sing that Plastic Ono has been replaced by something a little more reflective. Another Neu! connection, nonetheless!

And you even left a comment over there, Deb, thanks! That's so nice of you. I feel all popular now; maybe I'll get a date to the prom after all!

That's because you are a mind-reader, Just A. Of course it would help if I had any sort of mind to read, but obviously you are used to working with pond scum, so. Thanks for the vote, you big old sweetie pie!

Do it, Beth! We need a really good eye-gouging, hair pulling brawl. None of this slappy-fighting that has been going on so far.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I do take it back, Justrun, it was highly premature of me to say that, as I hauled sweaters of of the closet.

Ooo, now that you are back, do we get to find out the results of your survey? Heading over to find out...

Dale said...

I love a good cage match and a good labia award. I already voted for all three of you, sorry!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Oh Dale, you are so Canadian! And that's why I love you so much. Well, that, and the other thing.

Dale said...

Okay Barbara, I'm changing tack. It's not over between us but, it's on!

BeckEye said...

Oh, I've offered a bribe. Naked pics of Dale and Splotchy.

I've got it in the bag. Now all that's left to do is sit back, relax and strum my guitar. To all the girls (and boys) who'll vote for me....da da da da da dee dee dee...

Barbara Bruederlin said...

You've gone from being the love of my life to my arch nemesis in one fell swoop, Dale? Oh you don't want to get on the bad side of the zombie, no you don't. Bring it!

Hot damn, Beckeye, that's fighting dirty! And that's what I love about you. Obviously I am going to have to vote for you. Over and over again.

Allison said...

That interview just made my day Barb. Thank-you for the laugh. I needed it :)

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Glad we could help a bit with our idiocy, Al. Now I think we need your help to moderate here before things get completely out of control.

phlegmfatale said...

woohoo! Death to splotchy!

phlegmfatale said...

erm, uh. I mean, Poor splotchy!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Splotchy SHOULD run, PF! It's a bum fight out there.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

also a bun fight ...

Who doesn't love a good death match. You know N&UR is in your corner.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

It's comforting to have N&UR as my tag team partner, Will.
