Vanity Thursday: Don’t Look Back in Anger

Around this time of year, television stations are flooded with “Year in Review” features. My personal favourite year-in-review things are created by a rapper called Skillz who does a yearly feature called “The Rap-Up” (although this year’s version is pretty… meh). My personal practice is to reflect on the past year around my birthday rather than at the turn of the calendar, but since this is a time where many people try to make sense of the last 12 months, it’s my hope that you will be able to find some joy and satisfaction in some of the things that happened this year, and use them to propel you into more joy in 2013.

    Very nice. But when did you start wearing reversed T-shirts and playing left-handed guitar?

    @Brownian – that’s the anti-Crommunist. Haven’t you seen Star Trek?

    But both Crommunists have evil Van Dykes. Are they one of those slashfic Kirk/Spock mashups I’ve heard so much about?

    I love the stereotype-crushing nature of everything about this (black, atheist, singing Oasis!) Bravo on the song and on the great blog. It’s quickly becoming one of my regular must-reads.

    What, a brotha can’t love him some Gallaghers?

    Once upon a time I would have argued that NOBODY should love them (especially circa ’94 when they were on the radio roughly every ten seconds, but now I actually appreciate their excellent songsmiths.) Better to love Gallaghers rather than Gallagher.
