artblog.net named best local website by new times

Post #537 • May 12, 2005, 1:44 PM • 29 Comments

So an hour ago I'm eating at the Honey Tree, flipping through the Best Of issue that the New Times puts out every year, and I find that the paper chose Artblog.net as Best Local Website this year.

I have to admit, I'm tickled. "Delightfully bitchy" sounds like "magically delicious." I think I'll put it on my business card.

Franklin, you're not bitchy, and I think New Times is a bit off in its assumption about who posts comments here. Still, congratulations.

-Congratulations anyway.

... and congrats especially for finally outdoing Bang Bus. Do I smell a bitter internet rivalry heating up?

I doubt I'm really outdoing Bang Bus except in this one instance, but thanks anyway. Hey, I have an idea: a website showing mpegs of young, hot artists getting lured into Snitzer Gallery for illicit, sweaty, hard-pumping, high-art shenanigans. We'll call it Bang Bas.

What exactly is your problem with Snitzer?

I have no problem with Snitzer. What's your problem with humor?

I think one problem with the Snitzer gallery is that its a bit over rated> This is not the best work in Miami. At least I hope it isnt.

Bas might just be one of the only worth while things at Snitzer.
Best of Miami i don't know, Best of Snitzer, Yeah.

I just tuned in after a hard day.

Of course this is the best site, but it is nice to be recognized.

Your comments have nothing "bitchy" about them, "delightful" or otherwise. Whoever wrote that should choose phrases more carefully.The reason the site is so good is because it is serious, commonsensical, intelligent, well managed and has a clear point of view.

And humor, viz. "Bang Bas". Very good.

Dear Franklin,

Were on temporary stand down from yesterdays errant pilot induced CODE RED ALERT in Washington, D.C. so, before a flock of confused seagulls wonder into restricted airspace around the White House and trigger another Department of Homeland Security mandated shut-off of all metro DC internet connections, Ill quickly exercise this opportunity to congratulate you and Artblog.net on your recognition.

Sincerely,

P.S. Late breaking inside the beltway news for your Miami readers: According to White House officials, Vice President Dick Cheney was in the West Wing of the White House when the alert sounded and was hustled to a secure location away from Pennsylvania Avenue. When asked how he felt after having his morning routine disturbed by the pilot and student pilot of the Cessna 150 that drifted into restricted airspace, Cheney reportedly responded, Delightfully bitchy!

Congratulations!...truly, your website's design is "clean and simple" which makes it easy to read... also it is the only place where one can read and find out things about Miami's "art scene"...negative or positive...oh....and funny too!
