Because awards shows are always a popularity contest and utter sham, I've often dreamt of renting a tuxedo for a week and hitting the road for a week to do an awards ceremony tour. Of course, being the big posi-vibin' softie I am, y'know I'd hate to have any losers. But that's okay...I can still give an award to every band I like if I only make up a highly specialized category for each. See below the playlist for this week AFS Awards Winners...
