Best of the Twin Cities 2010 - Vote For The Ghibli Blog

Vote for The Ghibli Blog - Best Local Blog

City Pages is the alt-weekly newspaper in Minneapolis-St. Paul, and they are now accepting ballots for their annual Best of the Twin Cities 2010 issue. This is a very high honor in the Twin Cities and the American Midwest, and this year, I want us to win.

I'm asking everybody, regular contributors and casual readers alike, to cast a vote for The Ghibli Blog in the Best Local Blog category. It only takes a quick moment to fill out the ballot, and you don't have to worry about the other categories if you don't want.

A win for Best Local Blogger would be a great achievement for this blog, as well as the greater animation community. This will be a win for all of us, artists and readers alike. I have always said that The Ghibli Blog would not be possible without your devoted support. Here is another opportunity to demonstrate that.

To vote, simply click on the big button on the top-right of the page, just above Heidi Marco Anne. You can also steal that button for your own use if you wish. Do everything you can to help spread the word and bring in the votes. Ballots must be entered by April 5. The Best of the Twin Cities issue will hit newsstands on April 21. Thank you very much for all your support. Now let's win this thing!

Is this the same Minneapolis that Kneehigh are currently performing their Brief Encounter in? (I recommend going if it is; it's not one of their best – there's rather too much stuff hanging on what seems a simple, one-act story – but with no hope of experiencing their Nights at the Circus or Rapunzel it's certainly still something).

That is correct. They're playing at the new Guthrie Theater. That's a really wonderful building. It sits on the banks of the Mississippi River, in an area that has undergone considerable restoration and development these past few years. This was once the heart of the flour mills whilch made Minneapolis famous.

Oh, and yeah, some of the City Pages categories are weird. Bars would probably be put into the "sex" column because Minnesotans are so reserved and passive-aggressive. You can't hardly get them to talk to you anywhere else. Oh, well, as long as we win Best Local Blogger...we can ignore the rest.
