THE ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT SHORTLIST
Super-sarky pop culture blog, taking a sly glance at everything from Keith Richards to Bruce Forsyth.
Comprehensive British film blog, featuring news, reviews and interviews.
Multimedia-rich music blog, bringing you videos, tunes and news from both new bands and older obscurities.
Personal blog from the comedian who was once half of Lee & Herring – and a cut above most PR-written 'celebrity blogs'.
Personal views of life and pop culture from a London-born New Yorker, now back in London.
MySpace blog of up-and-coming rock/soul band from London.
The judge for this category is Alan McGee. He discovered era-defining bands Oasis and The Jesus And Mary Chain, and with Creation Records also released classic albums from the likes of Primal Scream, Super Furry Animals and My Bloody Valentine. He then disbanded Creation, set up the Poptones label, and now runs two weekly club nights in London - Death Disco and The Queen Is Dead. Alan has his own blog myspace.com/deathdiscolondon and contributes to the Guardian music blog.
