I Prefer The Obscure Remix Blog

      So the votes were cast, and the judges had their say. I’m still quite shocked, but it seems I’ve made the shortlist for this year’s Irish Blog Awards. IPTOR has managed to sneak it’s way into the category of Best Music Blog??!!

      All I can say is thank you to anyone who voted for me, and the judges that deemed this little blog worthy of a nomination. My thanks to Damien – especially for fixing my address – and the sponsors of this award also.
      I’m still relatively new to this blog thing, but I’ve enjoyed it immensely since I began. As my profile says, I’m just trying to share the wealth and spread the love. There’s so much great music out there, and not all of it gets the attention it deserves, so I hope I’ve shed some light on new/small artists or songs.
      Blogs are a huge source of information for me – Irish and international. I learn as much about music from Nialler, Pedro, Red, Sinead, Jim, Ronan, Matt, etc, than I do from any paper, magazine, radio or TV show.
      I hope anybody that has read my blog has picked up a couple of recommendations or unearthed a few gems, as I have over the last few years from blogs.
      A big thank you to everyone who has ever read this blog, linked to it, or commented on it. It’s really appreciated. And best of luck to all the nominees!

      1. If I were a judge, you’d totally get my vote. You’ve been a great source of suggestions since you’ve started. Keep it up.

      6. Whatever it was you learnt from me, would you be so kind as to teach me some of it. I haven’t a bleedin clue what I’m at most of the time.

      7. Red, Sinead, Lauren, and Ronan – Go raibh math agat!

        Pedro – I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. A smart mouth’s a lonely mouth. And I refuse to listen to the Lightspeed Champion record until you start blogging again.

        Matt – I now know how to record my vinyl onto my laptop, and make a Podcast. Neither of which I’ve done, but I could!
        Also, you reminded me of how much fun it is to go into town on a Saturday and buy 7″ singles, rather than buying songs from eMusic at home. Good work sir!

      10. I’ve used more gaeilge in this post than I have done in the last decade. I feel like Wuzza in that beer advert.
