500th post! (New contest announcement)

So. Left Behinds has become a part of your everyday life, right between morning coffee and masturbation. Solomon is busy presiding over our most successful effort yet, the 2006 Second Annual Left Behinds Hottest Gay Journalist In New York Awards, garnering hundreds of votes and thousands of hits (though derided by some as "unbelievably pathetic"--incidentally, Solomon, that has to go on our blurbroll).

You know you want to stay on top of this wave. When we crash against the shore of success, swamping the little boats of the MSM, you want to say you were way out there from the beginning, paddling your surfboard into the gathering swell.

We're going to launch a new contest soon after the results of the current one are announced: The 2006 First Annual Most Annoying Person in New York Sand-in-the-Sandwich Awards. We have a few people in mind, but we also want your nominees. There are a few basic rules:

1. Anya Kamenetz is not eligible, just as the current Miss America cannot compete to retain her crown.

2. "Most Annoying" is not the same as "most evil" or "worst." Truly evil people would overwhelm the competition. We're looking for people who set your teeth on edge for no good reason, not Bruce Ratner. Similarly, no one who appeared among this year's NY Press "50 Most Loathsome New Yorkers" is eligible.

3. You must include reasons. "Most Annoying" is necessarily subjective, so you're going to have to argue for your nominees.

4. You may nominate as many people as you want.

5. You may propose additional rules or standards, but we are not bound to adopt them or even give reasons for not adopting them.

Put nominees in comments or, if you don't want your arguments read too soon, send them to antid_oto at hotmail dot com.

We love you madly. Belly kisses one and all.

    Belly kisses? Do you think you're Putin or something?

    Vlad and Dubya should find a room and massage and belly-kiss each other to their gay little hearts' content.

    Btw, is it too obvious for me to nominate Anderson Cooper? I think I'm already on the record as to why.

    No, nominate whomever you want. Though I'm not sure you're totally on the record as to why.

    Dominic Carter. Press A on your remote for annoying.
