"Turn me on dead man ..."
My friend J.C. Macek III, a.k.a Brother Kneumsi, a.k.a. The World's Greatest Critic has posted his second annual 2006 Dead Man of the Year Award. This year the winners (there are two!) are ... oh, but you'll have to click the link to see! BWA HA HA HA HA!
The idea behind the award is to recognize an artist whose reach has extended beyond the grave, and whose contributions have in someway shaped the entertainment scene for the better over the past year. The 2005 Dead Man of the Year Award went to Willis O'Brien, the man who brought King Kong to life in 1933.
I think this is the coolest idea for an annual award. The great thing is, the runners-up can't have their egos crushed when they don't win! Ha!
