***YAHOO!!! BG Nominated for Award!!***
« on: August 20, 2008, 05:46:03 AM »
The Brilliant Gameologists Podcast has been nominated for a Parsec Award- the best award in the geek podcasting sphere. 

http://parsecawards.com/node/541

We're in the Gaming Podcast category. 

Now I wish I could go to DragonCon!  Maybe I should try to see if I could bunk with someone else going?

Congrats Meg! You gameologists definitely deserve it!

Not bad considering that I just spaced out and stared at them for ten... :sh

I actually don't think it's voting.  Or at least I can't find anything on the site about that.  I think it's judges. 

So fingers crossed!  Though honestly just being nominated is good.  It would be better if they linked to us, but good enough.

I think it was the BG's detailed description of Massachusetts' worst kind of weather from the last podcast (19) that really tipped the scales to get you guys nominated. I mean how could they not at that point?

Actually, we had to submit a "clip show"-- 10 minutes total from 3 shows total who showed who were were with no episode after April 30th.

Listen yourself, see if we chose the best pieces here:

http://brilliantgameologists.com/blog/45

I think that is what got us nominated.  My guess though is that judges will listen to a few full episodes to choose the winner, but who knows.

Woooo! Hope you get it! Maybe I should actually listen to some of your podcasts.  :lol (My wife hates gaming. I have to sneak around and post on here, and I can't listen to them at work...)
