Surprisingly, we ended up with a first-place tie in the category of “Best Columbus Underground Contributor of 2008”. The leading votes were split down the middle between JimL2 and ndcent.

JimL2 of course being famous for watching crappy movies and blogging for burgers, while ndcent is famous for getting people talking about bacon and pet peaves (sic).

Does anyone have any favorite JimL2 or ndcent moments from 2008 to share?

Third Place: Rockmastermike

#4 Bear

#5 Coremodels

#6 Andrew Hall

#7 Motorist

#8 Enzo

#9 Cyclist

#10 Manatee

  • Consider this our version of American Idol.

  • JimL2

    Wow! Thanks to everyone who voted for me, and extra-special thanks to myself for being so clever.

    I’m really just honored to be up here with fellow winners Coldplay, and CU “Best Of 2008” winners Coldplay.

  • Manatee

    Well, considering everyone’s attitudes toward Enzo and Cyclist… I’m… what’s the word? Honored? To be ranked beneath them, haha.

    I have some great JimL2 and Ndcent moments from 2008, but none that I’d like to share.

  • Bear

    Wow! I’m honored, truly. I guess the best advice for future success would be to practice succinctness and creative obscenity.

    In any case, I’d like to thank the Academy, my mother, my lovely wife Colleen, and — hey, no, not the music, not the music!

  • JimL2

    Bear’s got a good point–what did we win??

  • Well, I was going to give out a prize for first place, but really I think you’re both just tied for second.

  • Manatee

    I think they should be sent on assignment together.

  • Rockmastermike

    I’m happy ya’ll enjoy my ramblings, but I’m really just an old crank with a keyboard and more free time than I ever wanted to have.

    CU is a great service, and it’s been really great to get to know all of you guys this year.

  • somertimeoh

    There’s not enough beer in Columbus for that assignment :)

    Congrats boys!!

  • i’m going to lick jimL2’s face when i see him again. that’s his prize.

  • sweeney

    a crime

  • As much as I love JL2 and Nd, I really think Enzo deserved this. Very few posts continue to invoke an emotional response like “OOOOOOH! WE should TOTALLY blah blah blah”.

  • Eh, JimL2 is highly overrated, and Ndcent has been phoning it in for the past six months.

  • Joev: Already in the running for fan-favorite of 2009?

  • Manatee

    P.S. Where is Gram? Recount! :P

  • somertimeoh

    Joev has officially earned his place back on Somer’s shit list :( We’d come so far in 2008, I’m terribly disappointed.

  • If that’s all it takes to get back on your shit list, I’m not sure it’s worth the effort ;)

  • somertimeoh

    You called my man overrated. He won’t care, but I’m a protector by nature.

  • “How can it be bullshit to state a preference?” High Fidelity, Nick Hornby … I have a feeling, at this rate, everyone will end up on Somer’s shit list eventually… way to encourage discourse! ;)

  • JimL2

    I don’t think it’s fair to judge NDcent so harshly, just because he’s using dialup.

  • And that’s why I voted for you. <3

  • Um… I think the Academy needs to review the by-laws again. CUA code 2008.3.1.11 clearly states that anyone that fails the Dagwood Challenge is exempt for any and all awards. The shame of DEFEAT carries on. Coremodels, JimL2 and Ndecent are OUT!

    However, I do want to make very clear that this does not allow Cyclist to get any awards either. As Ambassador for the Peach District his hands are tied…or should be.

  • Ndcent

    This is an honor like none I have known.
