The IITS 2007 Pop Culture Hall of Fame Nominees: Final Voting

Posted by Andrew Unterberger on December 17, 2007

To all the fellas out there with ladies to impress, it’s easy to do, just follow these steps

Well, friends and well-wishers, I’ve got no more categories of nominees for you. Now is the time to make sure that your voice is heard, by voting for up to five nominees (+ one optional write-in vote, though if you wanna write more than one, I certainly won’t stop you) from each category, to be the 2007 inductees to the IITS Pop Culture Hall of Fame. If you’ve slacked off on voting until now, if you’ve been deliberating endlessly, if you think you might’ve missed a category when you broke your all-time record by sleeping for 27 hours straight, better take this time to get right. Vote in the comment box here, or e-mail me at You guys have until Tuesday night to cast your votes, at which point I will tally and present the winners. If you don’t vote at all, that’s cool, just know that yours was the ballot I was really looking forward to being submitted, and that my crushing disappointment of your lack of participation probably means that I’ll soon lose motivation to write entirely and close the blog down by the New Year. Just sayin’.
