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.]
