The Dogs

I'm concerned

In an effort to procrastinate and distract myself from this stupid post I've been trying to write for days I decided to look at the stats page again to see if my ratings still look like something that sunk the Titanic. In fact it has started to stretch out into a slightly less disconcerting shape.

The thing that concerns me is my post ratings. According to the stats the most popular post in Triton Cove's entire history is a relatively new post that some how jumped past all the others in a matter of weeks. No doubt you're saying "But Pete, what post could possibly hold so much fascination and interest that it could so fully dominate all the other, more seasoned posts?" What post indeed my good people.

The unfortunate thing is that I'm pretty sure the hit rate on this post is not due to some new height of enlightenment I managed to achieve nor to the fact that I wrote something that reached out and touched the hearts and minds of the masses and sent them into a forward-this-to-all-my-friends delirium. No, I believe this to be a tragic mix of internet demographics and search engine key-wording gone wrong.

The most popular post in all Triton Cove history? You guessed it: Exploding Anal Glands!

WTF internet.

FPF: Triton cove is nominated. woot woot

Thanks to some truly awesome blog buddies (links coming soon) Triton Cove is nominated for a boomerang award from studio 30+. When I found out I was totally flattered and stoked and immediately began formulating a plan to write some super kick ass photo flaunt to rally support for the cause. That was a little while ago and now that voting has finally begun I'm totally behind the bar. Why? because this is my first day of down time since I heard about the awards in the first place. All the stuff that has happened int he last few weeks would be a long, winding story filled with strange digressions and slightly macabre topics. So i'll save that rat's nest for another post and for now just say that for the moment I am completely and utterly emotionally and physically exhausted.

I wish I had some wise and witty words to wrap up 2010 and usher in the new year with hopes of blog awards and the inevitable launch of my side project Red Picket Fence. But right now I'm just too distracted with my rum and coke and tivo'd Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. The cruel cold world filled with artistic insecurity and whorish self promotion will have to wait another day. I've had an assload too much perspective on big picture stuff to process right now. So I'll just say this. Thanks for the nomination guys. If we're blog buddies and you're nominated, write me, cause I don't want to miss you on the ballot. And everyone should click the link below for the ballot form.

AND VOTE. Because how else will we know that sitting here in our pajamas and navel gazing is worth all this time and effort.

So anyway, I figured this was as good a time as any to do a look back at previous photos that have been featured along with a few new ones (This has nothing to do with the fact that I'm away from the home office and can't upload any new photos from my external drives). Why? Because I'm just as much a shameless whore as any blogger, and I want you to go vote!. Seriously, go do it. Vote minions! And tell your friends. Blog awards are more important than the golden globes nowadays.

Here's some eye candy to motivate you.
