|Now: Nonce. Then : Hero|
But first of all we'll start with a few lost ends.
Best T Power Impression.
Rudimental Feel The love. Coming over like some 2012 version of Mutant Jazz this is not bad especially for a junglist hater such as myself.
We would add Gotye to the list but to be honest we'll add the Star Wars that we used to know instead as its much cooler.
Which leads into the best TV of the year.
Private Life of Plants in 3D With David Attenborough
Looking at plants in close up with a generous amount of Cacti and succulents thrown in for good measure this was the coolest of them all. With revelations like bats making use of Cereus blooming to create a nectar Corridor and the worlds smallest (and most Endangered) Water Lilly and its propagation. That was cool.
We came to this late but damn this is good. The premise is this people who cannot keep up with the payments on their lockers have it go to auction where they are sold off to people. Often with Thrift Stores (a yank charity shop by any other name) or junk shops. Sometimes the people come across treasure sometimes though they don't. Its much more riveting than it seems, there is also a Texan spin off where everyone is 10 stone fatter and a redneck.
Best YTP The 2000s were a point in time Da Things.
YTP is at its best when its used to rip into its target. This neatly executes a handfull of 2000 songs with such aplomb its uncanny.
Best Source in a YTP video.
A weird little online game that is supposed to teach kids English but comes across as really awkward hosted by a demanding pumpkin. His catchphrase is I Don't Want that, and would really love it if you gave him the french Fry.
Best Dreamcast era racing game.
A pedestrian browser game that looks like it was coded for Dreamcast but in reality is the first game put out by ronery communist dictatorshp North Korea. The game tasks you with driving round Pyongyang and collecting items for bonus trivia.
Miranda Awards for televisual despair. (we should make a logo for this)
The bastard 2012 olympics as it should be known. I only care about one Sport (snooker) and to be honest a whole 7 weeks worth of athletics and how they did really well makes me want to puke blood. The opening wasn't that bad but the Underworld songs were underwhelming. We watched it on iPlayer and just substituted old Underworld songs instead. There was a load of cock about the NHS and a load of chimneys. We didn't like it at all.
Apart from that it was all gravy.
