The Weblogs Awards: 2008 Bloggies


The 2008 Bloggies has nominations open and DBKP is nominated for a couple of slots.

If you’d like to help a blog that’s down on it’s luck, you might stop by and put your two pixels worth in.

Here’s the low-down:

1 Go over the the 2008 Eighth Annual Bloggies nomination webpage.

This nomination thing is open until this Sunday, January 13. If you’re like us, you might want to do it now. Or you’ll forget. Or something more important will come up, like paying a bill or fixing something to go with the last two Oreos.

2 Scroll down to the categories. DBKP is nominated in three categories, as best we can tell. They are, in order going down the page:
a – Best Weblog about Politics
b – Most Humorous Weblog
c – Best New Weblog

3 You have to enter our name:

[Death By 1000 Papercuts] and the URL


We have conveniently put them in #3 here for your cut-and-paste convenience. Ours too.

NOTE: You have to nominate 3 different blogs while you are there for the nomination to count. Think of 2 other blogs to nominate.
Your friends, our friends. Hopefully, not in our categories, but what the heck.

4 You have to type in the 2 CAPTCHA words. Those are those annoying letters and numbers that insure that you are a human, although most humans frequently get them as wrong as any spambot.

5 You then have to enter your email address.

6 Hit the “Submit Your Nominations!” button.

7 You will then get an email and you have to click on the address in your email to verify your nominations.


It is a bit of work, huh?

But, like the Democrats in the SCHIP debate a few months back,

think of the children“.

Also, we’re trying to think of reasons for you to do this. We came up with a few:

Help us so we can help others“.

Show that you really care“.

Only you can prevent forest fires“.

We threw the last one in there because we’ve always been partial to Smokey.

If we get enough votes to be make the finals, we’re going to throw a cyber party!

And we’ll remember all the great people who helped us on our climb up the ladder of life.

Nominate DBKP and we will not only pray for you, we will also put you on our “Good Karma List”.

That’s a Two-Fer that we’re hoping proves irresistible.


Now we can eat.

[NOTE: DBKP is going to post our "buddies in the blogosphere" that we're also nominating on Wednesday and again a couple times before Sunday.

These are all the bright, cheery blogs that always show us love, peace, kindness and understanding. You might not be aware of them. So, check with us on Wednesday and we'll have a whole line-up.

Because maybe you'll be at work, the boss is away and you need something to while away your time besides the 158th game of Spider...]

DBKP: We’re Moving and Growing!

In case you didn’t notice, we’re making a few changes.

We’re moving to a bigger site (we’re still going to be having this one for awhile, then we’ll re-direct to the new one.) and we’ll be able to offer our readers a lot more at the new location.

This is sort of a preview of the new place, not a final edition. A test run, if you will for several items.

Look for new features, new writers and some surprises. LBG’s got some things up her sleeve, RAPH’s been positively prolific and has a new project that I’m excited about and I’m going on a worldwide tour opening for U2.

Okay, so the last one’s not happening, but you know how easy it is to get carried away.

In the meantime, let’s hope no one has a stroke.

And pray for the poor, overworked staff.

We drive them like Eskimo sled dogs.

Happy Thanksgiving to Our Readers

Ain’t That Something? Dept.

We saw this little ratings widget at Simply Jews and it intrigued us. So we headed over to Critics Rant to check it out.

We decided to put Death By 1000 Papercuts to the test. As the title says, “What level of education is required to understand your blog?” We wanted to know!

Below is what we found out:

cash advance

Cash Advance Loans

So now we can’t get through the door because our head is swelled three sizes.

And if you are a regular reader, give yourself a pat on the back: we write to our readership. So far, no one’s had any trouble reading or understanding us. Not sure how accurate the widget is, but we’re not going to question it.

At least one of us ran out and bought a book on quantum mechanics.

The next time someone looks down on you for reading or commenting about Dog the Bounty Hunter. Or they think your web-surfing is low-brow stuff.

Just smile as you’re walking away and mention that you read “Genius Level” articles everyday at DBKP.

Death By 1000 Papercuts: Sidebar Graveyard

Where do items go once they leave the DBKP sidebars?

To the sidebar graveyard, of course.

These are items we want to keep, but are no longer going to be on our sidebar. Take one last long look at them. Some have been on the sidebar since Day 1 of DBKP.

They’re like old friends to some of us.


* MONDOREB —-Raised by wolves, he was caught affixing 2000 Bush/Chaney stickers to cars in the SF area in 2004. After a stint in a re-education camp and briefly shilling for a mime, he dropped out of sight. Now he’s back. This is his story.
* LITTLE BABY GINN—-Out on the hard edge of life, she walks confidently: the ‘click-clack-click-clack’ of her stilletoes, her vivid scarlet lipstick and a half-smoked cigarette, her only companions. She writes because–well, no one is quite sure why. But write she does. This is her story.
* LUSCIOUS P——Our crack War on Drugs & Lifestyles reportress. The P is for Peach, as in Ripe, Juicy Peach. And thankfully, she’s P, not PC, or we’d all be in trouble. When she hands in an article, wisps of smoke come off the page.
* RIDESAPALEHORSE———-Some whispered: he’d been a Ninja; others, that he was running from his past. A past that included one lively blonde and two dead bodies. We only know: when he walked in, he had a knife in his teeth and a fistful of Art.
* BABBAZEE—–She roared up in a ’70 HemiCuda: a ‘Zion Rules’ bumper sticker on the back and an AK-47 out the window. She slammed on the brakes and said “I’m here for the Jewhad!”. We knew then she was our kinda woman.
* HUGE SCROTUM MAN————-(Scroticus Maximus) A natural optimist: life gave him huge testicles, so he has a ball. He brings the Java.

[This item made unnecessary since we added the "STAFF" earlier. We kept it around this long for old time's sake.]

Join us in supporting free speech of ALL reasonable candidates in our Presidential elections by opening the debates to ALL major party candidates!

[We kept this up for a long time and sent 4 emails without a response. If anyone has any info on this blogroll, drop us a line, we'd still like to join.]


Unable to adapt. (Pictured above: Hypsibema missouriense, the official state dinosaur of Missouri.)


Unable to defend itself from Europeans. Tasted like chicken.

Unable to defend themselves from continuing multi-cultural outrage. (Pictured above: Cheese map of France.)

[One of first and favorites, it's like waving good-bye as one of your children leave home. It will make a future appearance, probably in expanded form.]


Looking for Keith Olbermann-haters’ articles and/or graphix for November 10, 2007 edition of I Hate Keith Olbermann.
Email to:Mondoreb

[Much as we love to hate him, the "I Hate Keith Olbermann" will only make the occasional guest appearance.]

DBKP Blog Round-Up: November 9, 2007

Little Baby Ginn’s look around the inhabitants of DBKP’s “Own Private Blogosphere”. Ginn takes a walk on the blog side and returns to bring today’s snippets.

John Kerry’s Rapid Response Team has the goods SBVT, vows to be ready for 2012 elections.

How’s that for a fast reaction and “winning the news cycle?”

A mere 3 years after the election, John Kerry’s team has put together a bale of evidence, that were it not for his total non-involvement in the ‘08 Presidential election, would set forth a string of events, that if not unrelated, would surely land him in the Oval Office.

If only it had been a Time Machine instead of a Right Wing Smear Machine they used on him! Try rubbing the magic hat, John. Or borrow Mugabe’s Magic Staff (wink wink).

The Casual Relationship and Code

We’ve talked about code, haven’t we?

Only usually when I tell people about code, I’m telling a committed couple to talk in code so that they’re not overtly saying something crude and off-putting like, I’m really kind of frisky so if you don’t mind, would you please take off all of your clothes right now?

For some people that might be sexy, but not if one of those people has two X chromosomes.

Picture Proof… Hostage Taker Ahmadinejad Met With Khomeini

Previously, former US embassy hostages claimed that Ahmadinejad was one of their captors.
This was later denied by the regime and a former regime agent.

But, a new photo that just surfaced in Iran may prove that Ahmadinejad did indeed have a hand in kidnapping Americans at the US Embassy in Tehran.

DBKP Blog Roundup: November 8 2007

Little Baby Ginn takes a stroll through DBKP’s “Own Private Blogosphere” and brings backs snapshots of note and interest. Whether you agree with the items or not, they’re interesting. Here’s Ginn’s latest goodies:

Genuinely Afraid

Former Republican congressional leader Newt Gingrich discusses the War On Terror at the National Press Club on August 7, 2007.

Referring to his grandchildren, Gingrich said:

I believe they are in greater danger of dying from enemy activities than we were in the Cold War … I am genuinely afraid that this political system will not react until we lose a city.

From ChenZhen’s Chamber:
My 11⁄2 Years At LGF, Part VIII: Sockpuppet Revealed!
I’m going to conclude this series by treating the lizards to a little surprise…
Mr. Poopypants = ChenZhen

On one warm August afternoon, while sitting in front of a brand-new work computer, I decided to visit the site and noticed that LGF’s registration was open. Now, up until that point, I had been online for a few of these windows of opportunity, but I had always resisted the temptation to register another nickname. Sockpuppetry just isn’t my thing, after all. On this occasion, however, I felt that it wouldn’t be such a bad idea to have another account- just in case. I dunno, maybe I got the feeling that ”ChenZhen’s” banishment was imminent. Anyway, the problem was, I was drawing a blank on what name to give my impostor entity. Time was running out, and I had to think fast. What should the name be? Desperate, I looked up to the masthead to remind myself what site I was on (a reference to boogers, or so I’ve guessed), and the inspiration hit me. “Mr. Poopypants” was thereby, er…um…”hatched”.

From Chicago Ray:
Lawsuit Better Late Than Never By Judicial Watch

I’m puzzled as to why a group usually on top of things of this nature, particularly as it pertains to the Clinton’s, hadn’t filed this lawsuit at a much earlier time in regards to Hill and Bill’s intentional stonewalling regarding the release of Clinton presidential documents from that time frame that Hillary is actively flouting and running on as her flimsy credentials for becoming the next president of our country.

From Cripes Suzette:

Dog Dogs Dog Cat Dog Puppies

1. Dog. After all is said and done, I want another corgi. I’m sure little purse-sized dogs are fine for the likes of Paris and Britney, and the big galoots do well for things like My Three Sons and the Brady Bunch, but once you’ve known a corgi, you can’t do with any lesser personality.

One late addition from Everybody Needs Therapy, because–hey–how can you ignore a shout-out?

But creativity in the blogosphere abounds. For example, The Lost War on Drugs at Death by 1000 Paperclips will have you wondering (if you’re me) where you’ve been. And I don’t know where I stand on legalization, by the way, so no assumptions here. I’m probably not pro.

Doc, it’s okay you’re not pro. Life is all about growth and dealing with changing perceptions. Our parents probably aren’t pro, either–and we still love them.

And that’s the state of our Own Private Blogosphere, Thursday November 8 2007.

Blog Round-up: Wednesday 11-07-07

“Little Baby Ginn’s Tuesday night stroll
through DBKP’s “Own Private Blogosphere”

77 percent of people oppose driver’s licenses for illegal aliens

“Voters oppose driver’s licenses for illegal aliens by a nearly five-to-one margin, a new Fox 5/Washington Times/Rasmussen Reports poll finds.
As immigration politics explode into the presidential race, polls show Americans are taking a hard line on benefits for illegal aliens, including opposing driver’s licenses and such taxpayer-funded benefits as scholarships at state colleges for illegal-alien students.”–On 1RedThread

Canary Is Singing

This does not bode well for Democrats and Hillary Rodham Clinton. When Krugman of the New York Times starts questioning the raison d’etre of the progressive Democratic Party, it spells trouble with a capital T in River City.–On Anna’s Clue Tank

False Swastika Reports At The George Washington University Have Far Reaching Consequences

Sarah Marshak, The George Washington University Jewish student who reported that multiple swastikas were drawn on her dorm room door, has allegedly confessed to drawing some of the symbols herself.

Freshman who reported swastikas drew them as well

Anti-Racist Blog fears that the consequences of Ms. Marshak’s actions will be felt well beyond this student and The George Washington University. Unfortunately, Sarah’s actions will unfairly put into question many actual incidents of anti-Semitism and anti-Jew racism on college campuses across the country. In addition, Ms. Marshak’s conduct is going to be used to demonize Jews and Zionists more generally. This can already be seen on the Internet.–On Anti-Racist Blog

Bill Clinton: Stop Swiftboating Hillary!

Oh, for crying out loud. The Hillary campaign just keeps getting weirder. As you’ll recall from last week, during the Democratic debate Hillary was asked about Eliot Spitzer’s idea for giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. Her non-answer was such a monumental flip-flop that the other candidates were well within their rights to press her on it, as was Tim Russert, one of the moderators.–On Bilby’s
