Kelly Lewis — “Performance of the Year” nominee — (Los Angeles, Ca.)


The first round of voting for this year’s “Performance of the Year” begins TONIGHT at 7 p.m. (Pacific) at The Public Blogger. As I mentioned earlier, it’s sort of like the blogging world’s version of The Oscars, with a little American Idle thrown in. Except we all agree Ryan Seacrest is a little creepy.

Anyway, there are 11 nominees, and one of us will be voted out each week until Dec. 30, beginning with the first round of voting tonight.

Yesterday, I began featuring each of the other nominees so you get a chance to see their work. There are five genres represented — artists, writers, photographers and singers. Oh, and one humorist. For the sake of argument, let’s just say it’s me.

Please take the opportunity to vote tonight, even if it’s not for me. Details are at the bottom of this post… along with detailed instructions on where to find my remains if I am voted out tonight. But please don’t let that influence your decision when you vote.

In the meantime, meet poet and artistic collaborator Kelly Lewis



Bitter sweetness spun
On treetops of evening sun
Settling for the day
Reflection of choices made
Each detail heavily weighed

Cast into shadows
As the light begins to fade
Darkness surrounds thoughts
Perhaps forgotten, not lost
Under warm covers of night

  1. This is really awesome, Ned! Thanks for showcasing me and the rest of the crew. Your energy and commitment makes some of us (okay me) look like a slacker! Seriously though, thank you. Here’s to hoping we make it to round two. 🍻 😀

No one is watching, I swear...
