Get this: we just found out that our song "A Better Version of You" is a finalist in the 2007 International Songwriting Competition in the "Comedy/Novelty" category. (Okay, actually, we’ve know for a couple weeks; they’ve only just now announced the finalists to the general public, and now we can talk about it.) Next, the group of 16 songs, which includes work by some friends and acquaintances of ours, including Sean Morey, Carla Ulbrich, and Flying Like Wilma, gets sent to the judges—Cheech Marin, David Cross, and "Weird Al" Yankovic (btw did you ever think you’d see those three names in the same sentence?)—and the winner gets announced sometime in April.
But wait; there’s more…there’s another prize being offered for the "People’s Voice" Award; you can listen to all the finalists in all categories, and vote for your favorite once per day. We know we’ll never really win this category, because we’re not a model-beautiful 22-year-old female singer-songwriter; but it would be nice if we can mobilize our Netterwebs minions (and perhaps a few partisan sympathizers from the Coulton Nation?) and at least make the ISC organizers sweat for a bit that they might actually have to give us the award. You can vote once per day, so go to town.
