Belated Obligatory New Year Post

Hello fair readers!

Happy belated 2010 to you!

omg it flashes!

Yay, flashing clipart! Classy!

I thought I would do what I should be doing on my  blog, which is obviously making lists of all things 2009-ish…just two weeks after everyone else is doing it. That’s how I roll! Behind the moment, am I right?

So here are a couple things that I totally and completely fell in love with over the past year:

Anything related to robots

Seriously, look how adorable my twitter wallpaper is. Bling! But really anything dealing with robots. Like this song:

fourfour

By far my favorite blog of the year. Ever read Jezebel? He is the one dude who blogs for Jezebel. My favorite posts are generally reality show episode recaps, particularly for Jersey Shore and America’s Next Top Model. And he’s kinda known for his hilarious animated gifs, truly an art form in his case…voila:

this should be in the moma

Various Design Blogs

I’m not sure when the design blog scene blew up but omg, there are so many good ones out there to inspire and remind you how severely out of date your actual real life apartment is. I love them and have used them to figure out what colors to paint in my new apartment, what type of furniture I might want to look into purchasing once I am not quite so poor, and what type of wedding I will plan when I actual getting around to that whole getting engaged thing. God bless you design blogs and all your dream making. My favs: Design Sponge, Wide Open Spaces and Once Wed

Summer Hours

I loved this movie. I loved this movie in a way that I forgot I could love movies. It was subtle and interesting and beautiful and well made and well written and well acted and just about perfection. It was happy and sad. It was beautiful and tragic. Mostly it was just a really fascinating view into the relationships of one family and really all families. I couldn’t recommend it more.

The Mighty Boosh

Just watch this

Now immediately go rent every season and fall into a Boosh-y daze of wonderfulness.

Last but not least…

Anyone who in anyway has helped/particpated/fostered the Young Librarian Series

Seriously, you know who you are. But just in case let me thank the following people: Erika Earp, Andy Woodworth, Sarah Schmidt, Melissa Fortson, Justin Hoekne, Mike Campagna, Adam Girard, Kit Ward-Crixell, Mandy Knapp, Amy Pelman, Sesheta, Carrie Straka, Tinamarie Vella, Victoria Vanlandingham, Laura Wimberley, Anthony Molaro, Molly Kelly, Steve Thomas and most most importantly the folks over at our parent website Tame the Web: Michael Stephens, Kyle Jones, Mikael Jacobsen, Katharine Johnson and Lee Leblanc for continued support and inspiration. You have all helped in some small or insanely large way to make the YLS happen this year and I am forever thankful for that <3 What do they say about the wisdom of crowds again? Oh yeah…we should listen. :)

Well that’s about it. Have a lovely new year, fair readers. Here’s to 2009.

Cheers!
