I received not one, but TWO e-mail messages from The Houston Press this weekend.

The first one was to let me know that my band, The Flying Fish Sailors, has been nominated for the 2005 Houston Press Music Awards and also invited to play at the showcase. The last time this happened was in 2002 when we were nominated (and won) in the Celtic Music category. It’s nice to get some recognition. We’ve only been together as a band for about 17 years.

The second e-mail was to let me know that I have been nominated for the upcoming Best of Houston issue. Every year they publish an issue that contains what they believe to be the best that Houston has to offer. The categories range from best bar, restaurant, etc to best place to have your car repaired and so forth.

In years past my radio show, Technology Bytes was recognized with the title of “Best Technology Talk Radio” beating out Michael Garfield, Houston’s own (so-called) High Tech Texan. In 2002 my partner Peter Hughes was recognized as “Best Radio Sidekick”.

This year I have been nominated for the title of “Best Tech Geek” for my efforts on the show as well as my weekly Help Line column in the Houston Chronicle.

    Good luck with the Best of Houston thing. I’m glad the Press is nominating bands that are still playing this year. (Why yes, I’ll mock them about “Cecil’s Muse” forever.)

    This is great news!! I was unaware of all of the recognition that Tech Bytes and FFS receive. I’ll have to check in here more often… 🙂
