Once upon a time there was a very clever wolf who spotted some delicious looking grapes high up in a tree. The shrewd wolf tried everything to get at those grapes. He howled as he tried to learn to climb a tree, he flung what he could at the grapes and he tried to shake the grapes loose. But he couldn’t get the grapes. Eventually, he gave up, walked away and muttered, “sour grapes anyway!”
Diamond Club swept the 2015 Podcast Awards; Night Attack won two awards, DTNS won and Frogpants won, it was a Bona-fide shellacking. Ever the bitter, ugly step sister, TWiT mods went on to tell their chat room that the trouncing was the result of an illicit script and they all but accused <> of cheating. Had Elgun been nominated and subsequently lost, we expect he would have shifted the blame to Chinese hackers but alas TNT was not nominated. (Nominations may have been compromised by the Russians following the China model.)
Adam Curry succumbed to the propaganda and neglected his mission of propagating the truth, as he faithfully repeated the mantra about a magic script and the haters, on his No Agenda podcast. Even J.C.D., the 4th place winner of the ‘2014 Sexiest People in Tech award,’ complained about the haters. JCD, what if people claimed you were really only the 8th sexiest, how would you feel? Why not just complain that Diamond Club fans have higher powered graphics cards and better track wheels in their mice?
It is fan voting and the fans voted, deal.
If #TotalDrama ever lost an award we would be gracious. I know this in my heart of hearts.
