IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: £16,500 RAISED FOR CRISIS
The two giant ‘P.U.L.S.E’ eyeballs auctioned off in aid of homelessness charity, Crisis, have raised a staggering £16,500.
As you know, David is vice-president of the charity, who are said to be "thrilled" by the gift.
OK, so we said that yesterday’s award was the last one.
We just couldn’t close our inaugural Blog Awards without offering some form of thanks to you all.
Our final, and rather appropriately-titled, Bless You award should be presented to (almost) all of you at some swanky bash where there’s lots of free champagne and truffles. And where David performs a four-hour version of ‘Echoes’, naturally.
But where’s the fun in that? (No, not the four-hour ‘Echoes’. That would be terrific, boss.)
What I mean, of course, is that we want to know what you think.
So let us know who you think this award should be given to (it doesn’t have to be an individual, it can be awarded to a group of people if you wish) – and why they should receive it – and we’ll give it to them. We’ll give something to them, at least.
My personal nomination goes to all the people who sent in the most beautiful messages of sympathy when we told you the sad news that Syd had died. It seems very appropriate on this the day that we offer a video of David performing one of Syd’s most touching songs.
Over on the aptly-titled Stuff & Nonsense page right now, you can choose your favourite from our favourite Most Novel Way for David to Save the World (Again) suggestions.
We’ll announce the person who received the most nominations and, therefore, scoops our Best All-Round Contributor award tomorrow, so there’s still time to nominate your peers if you haven’t already done so.
Loads of you told us that our Am I Talking to a Brick Wall? award should go to anyone who keeps banging on about Pink Floyd reuniting. That’s really good to hear. Thanks very much.
2006 has undeniably been a rewarding year for David, with so many high points. For some of the most hardcore Floyd fans to now truly understand that David is interested in making music for pleasure, without the incredible burden of Pink Floyd, is certainly appreciated.
