2012: It's good that it was
so we're closing out the least productive year in the five year existence of this blog.
what can be said about 2012? a year defined by "Call Me, Maybe", Gangam Style (didn't know what this was until i saw some smart-ass middle school kid do it through the back window of the school bus i was stuck behind while in traffic. he looked me in the eyes the whole time while bearing his teeth. in my day, we just flipped people off, but okay), more right vs. left ballyhoo, the not-sure-if-wantness of Prometheus, mass shootings, the party ending for illegal downloading, nerds being moody over the Governor not having a mustache on the Walking Dead TV Series despite a strong nuanced performance from David Morrissey that was filled with desperation and menace, making the character something more than the grindhouse Lord Stingray he was in the comic, nerds being moody over the minute flaws in the otherwise class act that was Dark Knight Rises, nerds being moody about nerds being moody, still no release in sight for Bloodyminded's Within the Walls, a motherfucking hurricane, the Communion releasing A Desired Level of Unease which you should buy, viewing my first genuine snuff film, the concluding year to the decade long shit show that's been my 20s, rediscovering the splendor of Melancholy and the Infinite Sadness, not getting any closer to that threeway, recording my first power electronics album, getting this track there, Lean Cuisine Hot Sandwiches, a fucking awesome DVD presentation of a German Splatter Classic, discovering that _____ fucked ____ and writing almost 40 songs out of the tumult left in the revelation's wake, new porn infatuations found in Skin Diamond and Dani Jensen, family getting the shit knocked out of it and getting back up again, sharing the stage with Eyehategod, the Quay Brothers exhibit @ the MoMa....
so it was good, and it's good that it was.
