Look we could debate whether I even qualify as an OG, but let's make haste and come together for a real cause:
I need to beat Ellen Degeneres.
About 10 years ago, I got a bad haircut. Not "I got drunk and decided to shave my head" bad, but sub par to say the least. Curses of a college budget and a little too much trust in the local salon school. I looked... a bit... effeminate. It's how I earned the nickname Ellen. As in Ellen Degeneres. It really stuck. To this day, I'm Ellen Dee to many of my friends. I wish I could dig up a pic, but you're really just gonna have to trust me on this. The resemblance was striking.
Fast forward to 5 days ago. Reelgood, the tiny (read: 8 person) start-up I helped found, has been nominated for a Webby under the category Best Entertainment App. Guess who's in the running? Ellen Degeneres. And I'm not referring to myself in the third person here by using my own nickname. The Ellen Degeneres App is nominated in our category. Along with Fandango and Marvel. So we're real underdogs here.
As it stands right now, we are absolutely neck and neck with Ellen in 2nd place. Seems to be fluctuating daily. So, I'm here to call on the NS forums to help me out in my time of need and help us beat out my nemesis. It would really mean a lot to us to put in a strong showing here and even more to me given my history with the magnanimous talk show host.
All you have to do is go here: https://wbby.co/vote-mob17 and vote for Reelgood. They do force an account creation to prevent fraud but it really only takes about a minute all told and they don't spam you after or anything.
I got a bad haircut. Got compared to Ellen and am still called Ellen to this day. Reelgood (my tiny company) is currently nominated for a Webby up against Ellen's app. You can vote for Reelgood to win and help me find redemption right here: https://wbby.co/vote-mob17
