TEC Award Nomination!!!! (woot woot)

Some days are better than others.

My day started on pause as I stood in line at the bank for an hour. Not to worry, though, I was looking forward to a great day at the office, catching up on a lot of critical listening and planning some vocal arrangements.

When I got to the office, I got an email from a talented young lady who wants to do some songs. Alright! (More will be revealed here if the deal comes together.)

Later on, Christi comes down the hall and asks me what is this T.E.C. Awards thingie we are nominated for? The TEC awards are 'Technical Excellence & Creativity' awards, sponsored by Mix Magazine's publishers & awarded at the Audio Engineering Society's annual show. This is a big deal. There's like no WAY we're up for anything. Right?

So I hop on their website to check it out, and SONOFAB***H .... there it is: My name listed amongst those of the coolest engineers in the world!!! and SugarHill's name amongst the coolest studios!!!!

The nomination is for our work on Beyonce's album: 'Dangerously In Love'. The competition is super steep:


Just to have our work included in this list is unbelieveable. I am truly humbled.

Whether we win or not, I am P U M P E D to have been nominated.

I've got to go call my mom.....

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! I'm bouncing up and down. Too bad a camera isn't on me so you can see the gratuitous bouncy boob shot.

How long do you have to work on your speech? You could make it rhyme. Nah, that'd be cheesey. You could put on a bunch of t-shirts with slogans and continually take them off while standing there. Nah, that'd mess up your hair. Maybe you could have a wardrobe malfunction? Nah, the FCC fines and becoming cliche would be a pain. Perhaps you should just streak the stage wearing an indian headdress. Yep. That's it.
