or know where I can find a list about the awards that beck has received? I'm doing a powerpoint project on him and would like to add his awards. Be brilliant if anyone can help! Thanks

well beck.com used to have this information, and it can still be found on the internet archive's backup. this is out of date and incomplete, but it should be a good starting point for you:

(scroll down question #9)

when you're done, add your list to wiki can can: http://www.whiskeyclone.net/wiki/

It was probably a bit of humorous hyperbole. B)

Ben went on at his shambling trot, clinging
to the fence, wailing in his hoarse, hopeless voice.
The man played and went on, Ben keeping pace
with him until the fence turned at right angles,
and he clung to the fence, watching the people
move on and away.

Hah yes, I got it. I work for a magazine so I know how those things go, I just thought that was a particularly interesting example. Can't get much more hyperbolic than that. Aside, I suppose, from proclaiming Beck's dominance of the galaxy and the universe.

I thought you probably got it, but I wasn't totally sure! I figured it wouldn't hurt to mention it. ^_^ (I think they should have said galaxy and universe. It's even funnier.)

Thanks for gettin' my back, Miss Candy. I'm really just replying again because I'm curious to see what my designation changes to at 100 posts.

Thank you! You've all been very helpful! I've added awards and nominations for things such as Grammys, Brit awards and a few others from each year!

:blink: Darn that must be quite a letdown! However, your comment prompted me to read that link. I love learning new things, and I didn't know all of those facts, like what was on the cover of Mellow Gold. The phrase "Back in the golden days of the Beck internet mystique" sounds SO cool.
What's wrong with you? Never seen a space ship before?
