A Break From Our Regularly Scheduled Programming shamelessly promote my 16 year old cousin, Thomas Barrett, who was selected as one of 20 finalists (out of 1100 entries!) for the BBC's "Next Big Thing" competition, a search for the best young band or solo performer from around the world. In case you can't tell, I'm exceedingly proud--just imagine, I'm related to someone cool enough to possibly be the "Next Big Thing"! (It doesn't seem possible, does it?)

In any case, the next stage of selections is done by internet vote: the top 6 most popular will then proceed to a final round of judging. This means that Thomas needs your vote (and your friend's, and your friend's friend's, and, of course, your mom's). Please, if you have a minute, visit this site to listen to his song, "Forever and Ever Again," and then visit this site to vote for it. (If, of course, you like it. I did.)

I promise a real blog entry later. If, that is, you all vote for my cousin.

I'll vote for him, if only that we share initials.

I used several different computers to vote for him several times.

I voted for him and I did actually enjoy his song. Now can we have a real blog post?

I voted and Ginsberg sustained my vote.

Your cousin's mother is my teacher in 8th grade algebra!
she told us about this too, and I went ahead and voted for him from about seven different computers.
hope he wins, because he's really good.
