Favorites this year:
Since I didn't see (for a lack of looking) any new romhacks this year that I liked, I'll just choose (in my opinion) the most epic 8 bit dual music theme for this year:
......at least I liked it anyways. Not that I think most people care.
Favorite new lightsaber I plan to order: Dark War Glaive
This is a copyrighted image, so all credit goes to UltraSabers LLC., 2011
Chrome finished emitter "claws", full options with quick disconnect change LED, sound, chose red as the blade color, mid grade blade with pointed tip, with sunrider's destiny (seafoam green/cyan) for the 'flash on clash' color to give the most dramatic effect, Li-Ion battery option. Unfortunately anti-vandal lighted pushbutton switches aren't available.
Favorite "unjustifiable expense" novelty item: a USB 16GB sith holocron
Hell no I ain't paying $300 to buy it, but I have to say the craftsmanship is certainly admirable. (Look at their Darth Bane novel style saber, you'll $*** yourself at the price).
Didn't see any new movies this year unfortunately.
Favorite discovered music track this year: Kalmah Heroes to us.
Favorite thing I did this year: visit a waterpark with my girlfriend. Unfortunately our relationship is a bit rocky right now and we are separated but not broken up yet.
Favorite TV show: The return of Beavis and Butt-Head with all new episodes. Makes TV worth watching again, for now. Well that and the science channel and history channel.
Favorite YouTube sensation of the year: Tourettes guy...yeah I know I'm a little behind the times.
