To Summarise The Summary Of The Summary: Boffo

End of the year, end of the decade, end of my twenties, end of the unending tyranny of participating in conversations starting "You know the Millennium? That was TEN YEARS AGO!", end of seeing every cultural artifact created in the last decade given a strict ranking and being told to line up in order like a group of sulky teenagers in a class photo. Because how can I enjoy a film, song, album, game, TV show, flavour, sexual position, hamster breed or random flash of firing neuron without knowing exactly how it racks up in comparison to its bedfellows?

I have nothing against lists. I just can't retain anything in my brain for long enough to compose one. I can't even remember the beginning of this paragraph. In fact, I have nothing against lists.

*tap tap* Is this thing on?

OK, it's Christmas, and so here is a quick last post of the year type affair, to say what things and people have been mostly all up in my 2009 brainspace and that and so! (And if you would like to make a donation to combat syntax abuse at this time of year, please click here. Every penny welcomed)


You know what? I just wrote a load of bobbins, but screw it. Basically, if you're reading this, if you're a regular reader, or you've commented, or you've arrived here because you think Charley Boorman is a tit or you're looking for a picture of Steve Holt or any other reason, it's all about you. With this blog and Twitter, it's the first year since 15 years ago with the usenet forums that the internet really became social for me, so from the bottom of my stupid soppy heart, thank you. It means a lot. See you in the new decade, my absolute bloody darlings.

And Merry Christmas to you all! x
