Friends, our own Mike Young NEEDS YOUR HELP! His essay “It Ain’t Me, Babe” is in the running for Best Nerve.com Feature of 2008. The competition is fierce. Right now Rachel Shukert’s essay about spending the night in a crappy lovenest in Nebraska is in the lead, with some bullshit about Stuff White People Like trailing not far behind it, but as you’ll see when you go over there, the vote-count is pretty low across the board so a decent influx of GIANT voters could seriously tip things Mike’s way. Also, FYI, you can only vote for each essay once, but you are allowed to vote for more than one essay.
I also gave a vote to “Triangulation” by Caitlin Macrae. It’s a piece about threesomes. She seems to really hit the nail on the head about what makes them so alluring, and she seems to like them even more than I do, which is seriously saying something.
