Banana Nutrament

Buy My Village Voice 2005 Pazz & Jop Votes

I just realized I won't be able to make January rent by selling promos to used CD stores. It looks like I will actually have to get a job, like some ordinary peon. Temping for a few days means less time for pacing around my basement apartment on Red Bull benders, digesting all the new music out there. This of course means fewer jewels of critical thought to bless my readership with.

In order to raise a little cash, I am selling a few of my Village Voice Pazz & Jop votes. Up for sale are about 36 points of album voting power, along with two singles picks. You get to do the #1s in both categories, just don't make me look like a jackass. I think it's obvious, but the blanks are yours to fill in.

My Ground Rules

1) You may not ironically vote for Dipset. No sincere voting for Dipset either.

2) It's patently obvious Sufjan will take #1 album, so don't waste any coin voting for Illinoise. It's your money though.

3) If you are a PR firm buying these votes for clients, please send any and all promo CDs my way. Just make sure there are no holes drilled in the left hand side of the jewel case.

4) If you work for a major label, let me know if you have any copywriting work available. When I do album liner notes I generally get around sixteen dollars a word.

5) You might think it's cute to buy votes for "Trapped in the Closet". About 200 other indie nerds have already had that idea. Consider showing Johnny Crack, Pizazz!, or White Girls some love instead. Again, it's your money.
