Ten Year-end Lists

In no particular order, here are the lists that I've been reading today -- some of these will be re-read and referenced for some time.
  1. Core77: Our Favorites from 2009 -- my favourite design blog
  2. Best Films of the decade -- care of Roger Ebert. I have seen 3 of his top 10 but half of his full list.
  3. Great Best of 2009 Recap -- Lifehackers best of the best including DIY, photography, re-purposing and more.
  4. Top 100 Craft Tutorials of 2009 -- bookmarked!
  5. 50 Best Albums of 2009 -- from NME, apparently I am out of the loop as many of these artists are completely new to me.
  6. Buzzwords of 2009 -- from the NY Times; while American in focus, a number of these made their way north of the border.
  7. Top Scientific Breakthroughs of 2009 -- from Wired.
  8. Top 25 Censored Stories for 2009 -- from Project Censored
  9. 20 Worst Foods of 2009 -- Eat This Not That lists its top 20 "calorie bombs"
  10. Google Zeitgeist 2009 -- billions of searches aggregated and compiled into a snapshot of global curiousity.

I don't know if your ears have been burning recently, but if they are then this discussion about your qualifications to count as a "reliable source" for movie reviews might explain it. See it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:King_Cobra_(film)

BTW, I have seen half of Ebert's top 10 and a little more than half the whole list. I liked them all except Minority Report.

Wow. That's odd. I've never claimed to be a professional movie reviewer, but my reviews are wide-spread, thanks to Apollo Guide. = shrug =
