Best of 2008


Recommended Posts

What is your best of 2008 list?


Best Video Game: World of Warcraft.......I haven't been playing much of anything else because of it.

Best Movie: Iron Man...............I know most will say TDK, but I'm not one for going with the crowd.

Best TV show: Chuck.............This was really hard. This could have been any of 5 different shows.

Best song: Nothing................I don't really listen to music anymore, so I don't feel comfortable saying anything was the best.

Best podcast: Keith and the Girl...............I've been listening since the beginning and they only get better.

Best internet find: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog......................Almost a tie with The Guild.

Best comic book: Birds of Prey.....................I hate DC, and yet I loved this book. Marvel went into the crapper this year.

Best moment: The presidential election..............I've waited 8 years for that man to leave.

Best Video Game: I only played Rock Band and some other Wii game where you flip burgers and shit all year so clearly, Rock Band.

Best Movie: Ils was released on DVD in North America in 2008 and was the best thing I saw all year. Dark Knight was up there.

Best TV show: The Office/30 Rock. A tie between the only two shows I watched all year. I guess I could count Dexter because I've been sporadically watching but I'm a season behind...

Best song: Nothing really standing out as the best: GNR's "Sorry", Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl" and Metallica's "All Nightmare Long" are all up there.

Best podcast: Dread Media. But I'm partial. Seriously, I dropped a lot of podcasts this year that I found were beginning to grate on me. Nobody Likes Onions was the most consistent with the laughs

Best internet find: shhh....

Best Video Game: This is a hard one. I’ll go with Braid.

Best Movie: TDK

Best TV show: I can’t get enough of Charlie Brooker’s Screenwipe. I haven’t watched much television this year so it’s not like it has much competition.

Best podcast: GFW. It’s a shame it ended. Still, Radiolab and This American Life have been keeping me entertained in its place.

Best comic book: Daredevil. I can’t get enough of the guy.

Best Internet find: Eh... I'll go with the Nostalgia Critic.

Best Video Game: Warhammer Online I guess. These last couple of days I've played it more than any other game this year.

Best Movie: The Dark Knight. Wall-E was a close second.

Best TV show: This is the year I discovered The Wire. Also 30 Rock.

Best Album: Not released this year but I've listened to Ash's Twilight of the Innocents more times than I can count these last 12 months.

Best Song: Also an old song I discovered this year, Meccamputechture by The Mars Volta.

Best podcast: (non-earth-2) The Bugle, from TimesOnline. John Oliver & Andy Zaltzman packed more un per half-hour in their shows than anyone else.

Best internet find: Podcasting through iTunes. I got my ipod for christmas last year and all of a sudden I'm listening to at least a couple of hours a day rather than sporadic downloads from specific sites.

Best comic book: JSA's been phenomenal, but Walking Dead has been like crack to me.

Best personal moment: Standing atop 30 Rock during my trip to New York. So good that I went back again the next evening just to get the nighttime view.

Best Video Game: Rock Band 2. I've been playing the crap out of this.

Best Movie: The Dark Knight, but it had some serious competition from Iron Man.

Best TV show: I don't watch nearly as much TV as I used to pre-strike.

Best podcast: (non-earth-2) Word Balloon. Fantastic interview show.

Best internet find: The Guild. Hopefully there's more coming at some point.

Best comic book: Either Captain America or Daredevil.

Best personal moment: Hmm... truth be told, 2008 is not the best year I've ever had. Looking forward to 2009.

Best personal moment: Erin's and my AIM conversation on the night of December 9th. I now have a new girlfriend and she has made everything in my life turn for the better. People have told me on more than one occasion that I look happier than I have in a long time. That's probably because I am happier than I've been in a long time.

That epic AIM conversation was the best of anything this year. It surpassed movies, video games, TV, comics, etc. I have never been so happy in my life.

I can already predict the best moment of 2009: Finally seeing James for the first time when he gets off the plane.

Happy New Year everyone!

Please do not let my bitter jealously and utter contempt for the human race ruin the moment.

In all seriousness, I'm very happy for you both. You should know that.

Dubs, I know that. You're my boy. We need to get together to trash Murder Set Pieces, ya' know. :yes:

I dare you sissies to do a MSP/Live Feed double feature.
