Welcome to the second half of the first decade of the twenty-first century. Storms, dying soldiers and much presidential pooch-screwing - sounds a whole lot like '04, no? In any case, if you were expecting reminiscence over '05, you thought wrong. I'm running helter-skelter into the next year and I ain't looking back for nothing ...

... except the things I found entertaining of course.

Best things that came out of 2005: Batman Begins, Serenity, Sin City, The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Mos Def in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy do it for movies.

In books, Elizabeth Bear's Canada Triumphant trilogy (so the first book was '04. Bite me), Hannibal Tabu's The Crown: Ascension, Accelerando(duh), Lady of Mazes

Videogamewise, there could be only one: God of War.

For comics, the whole Boy Blue vs. The Adversary arc in Fables, Desolation Jones #2, Grant Morrison's run on JLA Classified,

This was arguably TV's finest year this century: Nip/Tuck, Rescue Me, Battlestar Galactica, The Shield, Prison Break, House, Desperate Housewives, Over There, Lost, not to mention the return of Family Guy.

Miscellaneous - among other things, there was that Russian cow that beat the crap out of three dogs, there was this weirdness and oh yeah, they invented carbon nanotubes, bitch!

Honorable Mention: This of course. Duh.

Worst thing: You mean aside from Katrina et al? Those PSP commercials. "It's like a nut ... you can play with outside" As spoken by that Zoloft dude. Christ.


Cat Calls 911 To Help Ill Owner ...

... aaaaand we're off to a weird start.

Anyone who thinks Mos Def was the best part of Hitchhiker's Guide is all right by me.

Thanks for getting the "green recruit" joke over at my place. No one noticed at the time (I posted that review last May), but better late than never!
