Grumble grumble grumble...

While reading through this article (and it's subsequent comments) on Tom and Trev's new Fuzzy Pop blog (which you should read, by the way), I came upon this video. I pray this isn't for real, though I think that it may just be.



Not only are the entire seven and a half minutes of the video tremendously cringe-worthy, but some of it is just factually incorrect! Postcard Records released C86 in 1985? Uh huh, and Tony Wilson founded Sarah Records, too! If you really feel the need to make such a misguided video, fine, but come on, at least do your research!

And I guess while I'm still ranting... What is this???

best record labels:

1. Series Two Records 74
2. Slumberland Records 12
3. Matinee Recordings 10
4. Cloudberry Records 8
5. Shelflife Records 4
Wee POP! Records 4
6. Labrador Records 3
Monkeymind Records 2
Magic Marker Records 2
Siesta Records 2
YAY! Records 2

(from the 2008 Twee.net poll)

Something seems a bit off. Hmm, perhaps it's that Series Two has over 60 more votes than every other label!!! Other labels that, in my humble opinion, had far brighter years than that of Series Two Records. So where did all these votes come from? And why did these 60 or so voters not vote for anything else – as the winners of each and every other voting category topped out at UNDER 20 VOTES?! Something is rotten in the state of Indiepop!

Now if you will excuse me, it snowed a lot today and I'm going sledding.
StumbleUpon Toolbar Stumble It!

It is a bit odd, isn't it. In the past you could view the individual votes and it'd be interesting to see them.

Concratulations for being the Best Blog though. And happy sledding! x

FuzzyPop is Tom's and not mine. Think he needed a place to grumble! ;-) Our joint blog is the Lostmusic one!

Ah, okay. I figured it was a joint effort as well, due to the header there... everyone needs a place to grumble, dont they?! :)

and then came jamc....

you just gotta love that.

and besides, you've missed the whole point: this isn't about pop - it's tweepapp.

i'm so twee, i only eat tootsie rolls for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, i watch yo gabba gabba on nick jr., and i wear dresses with flowers on them all the time.

i think if this video is fake, it would be that guy who said his favorite twee band is los campesinos! that would give it away.

I doubt there was any unfair play, I think most likely Christopher spammed everyone he knew and told them to go vote for SeriesTwo, so there was a big influx of voters who wouldn't have otherwise voted at all.

That said, I think Slumberland should have won.

Okay, so a few facts were off in that video, but it seemed to be made by a high school or college student, so given that I didn't think it was too bad!

AS far as the tweenet poll goes, I just think other labels didn't try to advertise the poll or suggest that anyone should vote for them. and clearly, i think SLUMBERLAND deserves the title of best indie pop label of '08 - They've signed/released all my favorite friends' bands in 2008 that In The Red hasn't. :)
