Here’s another cool blogfest coming soon:

100 participants is amazing. I like what makes you happy though I'm still envious about the iPad. Gotta get me one of them.

mshatch said...

ooh! Thanks for the link to the top ten horror and scifi quotes; that will be fun. I'm already making my list! I'd do the top ten songs but I don't think I could choose just ten plus my taste keeps changing... glad you got you 100 :)

Congrats on the award and also getting over 100 people to participate in the music blog,
Not sure if I can do the one on Feb 6th as I am going away on the 10th to Nashville and will be preparing for my trip, but who knows if I plan in advance???????

Still wish I had an Ipad.

Hey Alex, so this is what you have for me on Saturday evening???... ;) I was thinking I was in for a Cassastar book copy as a surprise...:)

But I am happy just the same for the HAPPY AWARD and may pass the same as simply as you did as I dunno the rules to passing said award...:)

Thanks so much and I may join the music blogfest too though you hit the 100th mark already...

Goodnight here and have a great day there...

Hey Alex, sorry I logged in from my alumni account hence not Amity appearing as commenter. Anyway, thanks so much. just wondering what made you happy with my comment...:)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thanks mason and the blogfest will be a blast!

Susan, you need an iPad.

Mshatch, it was tough for me to choose. Glad you signed up for the quotes fest.

Amity, I wish I could send you one! And your kind comment of appreciation just made me feel good.

Karen, the sci-fi/horror fest isn't for everyone. You're still cool!

Nebular said...

Though I'm not a party junkie, I've always been very into house music. Therefore, I've decided to do a top 10 all time favorite club tracks. See you on Monday, clubbers. Can't wait!:)

Karen Lange said...

Congrats, Alex! Have a good weekend!

Paul Joseph said...

I am all set for Monday, Alex. It's my very first blogfest and I couldn't think of a better topic. Now, that's not to say I haven't gone in and changed my choices a few times since composing the draft, because this is definitely not an easy list to generate. Looking forward to what everyone comes up with.

Charles Gramlich said...

The horror/sf movie quotes, I could certainly do.

Jessica Bell said...

Alrighty. I signed up at the last minute :o) Stephen T. McThingamyjiggy forced me to. He tied me up, handcuffed me and said he would haunt me with his poilitical yahoo for the rest of my life if I didn't do it. So here I am. ;o)

Mary Aalgaard said...

I think your music blogfest is a great idea. I'm not signing up even though I'm also a musician. I couldn't choose. My theme song is always changing.

Nezzy said...

Woohoo, ya'll know how I love a great tune but no time right now...the Ponderosa calls....

Have a blast and a half!!!

God bless and enjoy this beautiful day we are given!!! :o)

Roza M said...

Thanks for this awesome Blogfest! Great songs listed by the way.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Alex .. this has obviously caught a fire .. being practically non-musical I passed the opportunity by .. but you certainly didn't need any help getting to 100+ amazing.

I was thinking someone very musical could put together a play list from these? A really good compilation for an ipod?

Cheers Hilary

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Jessica, that's why he STUFFS!

Hilary, you should see what's on my iTouch! It's full.
