The Zanazaz Awards

That's right.  I'm working on The Zanazaz Awards concept.  I'm working on categories, a certificate, and a banner to post on your blog, ( if you want to ).

With "The Zanazaz Awards" you don't have to worry about back room dealings, corruption, bribes ( unless you want to... heh... I'm joking!), and other such nonsense.  There are no deadlines, no hidden rules, no snobbery. You don't even have to send me anything, except perhaps suggestions, or nominations.  I am the final judge and juror.  Yes, it's up to my capricious whim, but are any other awards any better?  And I would say my awards will be just as credible as any other awards out there, probably more credible because there are no politics, money, or big business involved.

I've already made one nomination for a blog post at Strange Magic .  It's in the category of "Most Excellent Blog Post".  It made me laugh, and humor is a good thing.  I'm still brainstorming other categories, but I'm liable to create new categories at the drop of a hat.

This is all about having fun, spreading good cheer and happiness.


  1. +10!

    I'm not a fan of the Ennies.

    You'll need an excellent design for the physical award - I'm thinking a solid gold hexagon with a 'Z' carved in it by precision karate chops from Chuck Norris.

  2. Hhhhmmm... I'll have to see if I can reach Mr. Norris. Wait... SOLID GOLD?!?!?!

  3. Ohhh, alright... the base can be mahogany.

  4. Yes, a mahogany base would be nice, but it's not a sustainable resource, and the rainforests are in bad shape as it is...

  5. A good point... and this is a hobbyists award.

    I've got it!

    The base should be made out of drywall and PVC pipe!

  6. Well, what about yarn and glitter on construction paper?

  7. That's for the kids version.

    Drywall, PVC, and Duct Tape. There's no budget, so we'll have to skip the solid gold and use Testor's gold paint.

    We can't get Chuck Norris, so we'll just have to use a Dremel tool.

    I'll take that over an Ennie any day. I'm sure there are plenty of people who rather have a 'for hobbyists by hobbyists' award from their peers.
