THE GANG OMEGA’S PICKS OF 2012: The Dude Edition
Caff-Note: The Dude didn’t write an introduction, so just imagine him shouting these from a mountaintop, whilst brandishing lightning bolts and delicious esoteria. Also, props to The Dude for week after week of High 5s this year. Gods bless.
Movie: I didn’t see many new movies this year so in my limited scope I present Argo as my favorite movie of the year with Looper as a close second
TV Show: All things Breaking Bad. If you don’t watch this show, you’re hopeless.
Most Disappointing Moment In Pop Culture: The news cycle’s coverage of mass shootings. They are creating anti-heroes for future shooters, refuse to take any responsibility, and blame things like movies, music, and video games. Its disgraceful.
Album: Music Sucks!
Book: Cold Days by Jim Butcher. The Dresden files slog on with my happily waiting for the next one.
Comic: I went the whole year without reading a single comic. So I guess I’ll just have to vote for Calvin and Hobbes.
Out of Right Field Awesomeness: I have spent the last week trying to find the answer to a horrible question. Which series of movies is worse, Transformers or Twilight. After seeing all three Transformers movies and two Twilight movies, the jury is still out. I will hopefully have an answer soon. Then I will stab my eyes out as they earned the right to never have to see such horrors again.
Video Game: This was a decent year for games, but since I’ve put about 700 hours into the Mass Effect 3 multiplayer, I proclaim it to be my game of the year.
Food: Calzones. Always calzones.
Person I’m Surprised Didn’t Die: Lindsey Lohan. She’s a dark horse in every death pool I enter. I keep waiting to see “Death by misadventure”
Drink: Coke Zero was my drink of the year. I love that black goo.
Biggest moment of surprise: That my cobbled together fantasy football team made the championship. The Well Hungarians have done me proud.
Eagerly Awaiting: First Contact … but I’ll settle for the new Star Trek movie.
Desperately hoping for: Gainful employment … or for Omega Level to be a full time paying gig. That would be amazing. Oh, and a new season of the Venture Brothers.
