AIOOOOOh, Thank You!

Wow. Thanks to your help and your votes, we were awarded the awards for Best Blog and Best New Site/Blog/Podcast at the 1st AIO Websters! What are the Websters? If you've ever heard of the Webbys (the Internet version of the Emmys, Grammys, Oscars, Tonys), this is the Odyssey fan version of the Webbys. It was put on by CreativeThinker101 at Just Another AIO Blog (click on the link to see the rest of the award ceremony) and he did a great job. Thanks for all your support, and thanks for CreativeThinker101 for putting the whole thing together! Here's our acceptance speech...we hope you enjoy! Look, I even wore a suit. 




Lyrics to "Odyssey Connection", to the tune of "Rainbow Connection," inspired by an article by Alex Jefferson on Just Another AIO Blog entitled "The Lovers, The Dreamers, and Me"

So thanks for voting on...Just Another AIO Blog!
Thanks for voting our names.
The sweet sounds that brighten up the Odyssey community, (Communicate!)
These voices are one and the same.
We've heard you too many times to ignore it,
it's something that we're supposed to be...
Someday we'll find it, the Odyssey connection,
The lovers, the dreamers in Odyssey!
La la la la la la la, la la la la la la...dah dah dee dee dah dah dah.

One final shoutout to the Old Judge. In his latest post, he seemed a little disappointed on not getting a Webster. I just wanted to say that if I could, I would give you a Special Achievement AIO Webster for both making the Odyssey community a bright, thriving place and creating a site that gives the lowdown on every Odyssey fan site. Your encouragement to all Odyssey blogs/sites/podcasts and compilation of all Odyssey news from all sites is unparalleled, and you are an integral, as well as unique, part of the Odyssey community. You are truly, as CT101, would say, one of the "involved" as well as being a terrific encourager, friend, and Odyssey nerd (AWWWW YEAHH). 

That's all for today, folks. Thanks for reading, and have a beautiful day.

NOTE: What's coming up? A campaign, a music video, a secret project, Odyssey reviews, SMSS, and much, much more. They're coming!

SIDENOTE IF YOU'VE WATCHED THE REST OF THE AWARDS CEREMONY: Garrett, you forgot to mention to thank yourself for "cooling" the Ceiling Fan. That is all.

  1. Hey, guys, thanks a lot. You really didn't have to do that. That was a good video, and I can't wait for your new SMSSes and reviews!

  2. A Special Achievement Webster is a great idea, actually. I would like to say that next Webster ceremony will be bigger, better, and just plain awesomer than the first one. Thank you for your suggestions and your acceptance speech, Josh!
