Sorry to barrage you with another email so shortly after the last one but I have some awesome news. My Doctor Who tribute song “I Am The Doctor” has been nominated for a Logan award for Outstanding Original Comedy Song! I will be spending the rest of the week basking in the glory of the nomination before I have my ass handed to me by Neil Patrick Harris. And I mean that in whatever way you think I do.
The Logans are being awarded next weekend at DeepSouthCon and will be hosted by Dr. Demento in a ceremony that is apparently being coordinated by me, so I guess I should get on that.
