Carrie Brownstein, formerly of the sorely, sorely missed band Sleater-Kinney and currently of many cool projects, including her comedy team with Fred Armisen, Thunder Ant, and, more relevant to this post, her video blog on NPR’s website, Monitor Mix, recently held a contest that I truly regret not hearing about earlier. As she explains here, she invited her viewers to submit potential theme songs, from which she selected 10 finalists. Now viewers can vote for their favorite. The winner will be the new Monitor Mix theme song. I like Meg Ruddick and The Hilarious Posters’ entries, but it looks like they’re both behind in the polls. In any event–if you’ll allow me to be a bit mysterious here–the contest is kind of inspiring me to get going with a project I have in mind for this blog. So stay tuned.
