02. / I also got a DVD Player for my birthday. Thank you, boo! -- I am strrrrrr-8! I love the DVDs you gave me, as well.
03. / Last week, the award for Best Blog Journalism (Hip-Hop) goes to bloggers Jenny (of Akei Tuesday) and Tobin (Down For Love) for their in-depth coverage of the Fugees reunion at Dave Chappelle's secret block party on Sept. 18.
-- The combination of Jenny's wrap-up and Tobin's exciting photos (via his digital camera, no less!) trumped major newspapers and other online news services' reportage of the show. Excellent job!
