Last week for voting for WAS in the NME Awards, Chris’s Twitter page

49 PM

This image on the NME’s Sexiest Male voting page has most likely changed by the time I post this. This is the last week for voting to get Chris and Keith in the shortlist for NME’s Shockwave Awards Sexiest Male.


Vote for Chris


Vote for Keith

And you can vote for Best Album Artwork where WAS is currently on top:


Vote for Brain Thrust Mastery

The shortlist will be announced on January 28.

ETA 1/23: Nevermind. Voting’s closed.

The front page of the WAS site was updated yesterday with a link to Chris’s Twitter page. (Yes, it’s really him. Who else but Chris would say something like “Just woke up in a bed full of dead ferrets”?)

MTV show taping next week

Their news page and Myspace blog was updated today with this:

TV just got a little nastier …

On January 21st, a new MTV show called “What You’re Watching with Alexa Chung” will shoot a pilot in New York City. We will be performing a song or two. If you want to be in the audience, just send an email with your name and age to mtvshowcasting@mtvstaff.com and put “WAS” in the subject line. They’ll get back to you shortly with either great news (you’re in!) or terrible news (you’re too old/your name is wrong!).

Finally, Chris and Alexa will appear in the same room together, proving, once and for all, that they are not the same person.
