Hello and welcome to the VNs Now.com 2.0. As you can see, it's not the custom site I dreamed for. That is still a long way off, but this server has lacked the issues Webs had so far and several different features are far superior to Webs...which makes me wonder why I'm just NOW finding out about Weebly. BUT that is neither here nor there: time for a fistful of updates!
Now, 2012 Best Ofs. Usually I give a pick for EVN of the Year right before I open the nomination round but I passed on that this year because of my workload. But with it so close to Christmas, and if you've done a bit of exploring already, you already know one of my nominees for EVN of the Year:
Nominations are still going on by the way, until this Saturday, the 29th, at 11:59:59 PM EST. I believe I've stated before that I only know about so many titles released in a year so if something you're proud of or you're a fan of was available in 2012 and it doesn't make the final list DON'T blame me! It was your job to tell me about it soooooo blame the fact that there's only 24 hours in a day. Also I've pushed the date for releasing an EVN for consideration for the list to this coming Friday, the 28th. Full Disclosure here: this was done in the open if you check the comments under the original post on the Tumblr page for the Best Ofs. Last year I had a strict cut off date like I was planning this year, but someone wanted to nominate an EVN titled ADRIFT which was released after the cut off date and should therefore, by all logical means, should be considered.
I do consider myself fair most of the time and a good point is a good point. So to offset that good point, anything made between December 11th of last year and December 28th of this year will be considered. As we move forward, more than likely I'll keep the cutoff date close to the end of the year, with a little wiggle room for me to go over any EVN that I didn't cover the past year. For now, thanks to everyone who's nominated their favorites already and keep them coming!
I think that's all for now. It's officially the 25th so Merry Christmas to all of you! I'll be spending most of the day with my family and I hope you enjoy the company of your loved ones as well! And now to play us out, a band that's been growing on me for a while now: THE PIANO GUYS! Until next time!
