MTV VMA 2007 Nominees Announced

Ever the media-buying librarian's friend, MTV has announced the nominees for this year's Video Music Awards, more popularly known as the VMAs.

I love the names of some of these categories: Most Earth-Shattering Collaboration; Quadruple Threat of the Year; Monster Single of the Year. Best of all, though, are the full-length videos nestled right next to the nominees' names and annotations. I may have to watch the "Girlfriend" video 500 more times, and catch my first-ever glimpse of Rihanna's "Umbrella" (ella, ella, ella).

QandANJ Commercial: Rock Out, SJRLC!

This is so fantastic, I almost have no words. A virtual reference ad, on MTV. Your eyes do not deceive you. I am so proud to be a member (or is it my library that's a member?) of the South Jersey Regional Library Cooperative. Talk about getting it. Pete, Karen, Beth -- please post in the comments about how this came about!
