2013 getting reviewed – my picks

I love the end of the year. It’s a time to look back at everything we’ve done this year and say, “Oh yeah! I remember that!”

So, of course, I love “year in review” lists, which are popping up all over the Internet this time of year. There’s really a category for everything, which is nice, since I’m kind of an “all over the place” kind of person.

Here’s some of my favorites, to help you sort through the lists of lists:

Wait….does this make it a “Best of 2013 Best of” list? That’s a cool fourth wall kind of thing…

  • Buzzfeed: The 23 Most Painfully Awkward Things That Happened In 2013. A unique spin on the list that helps remember all those GIFs we laughed at throughout the year. Plus, I love awkwardness, it helps me remember that someone’s having a worse day than me.
  • CNN: The year in pictures. A very awesome set of photographs, with everything from the Oscars to serious  happenings. Very beautiful stuff.
  • TIME: The Most Suprising Photos of 2013. This is a goofball set of photos from throughout the year. It’s like a mashup of all the photos CNN was too embarrassed to put in their year in review, because they were so out there. I like that.
  • And I’m looking for a good Best Movies list. I haven’t found a favorite yet, but This one of best movie moments comes close. I just hate when these lists include so many artsy movies no one saw. Like, “The Heat” was a great movie. It should be on your list, not some weird movie about a father reconnecting with his won over a 3-hour cup of coffee. But whatever, I’ll keep you posted.

 

Super Bowl is almost here

…..and you know what that means – Super Bowl commercials!

They’re definitely the best reason to watch the game.

Monday, I’ll try and hit the highlights – but we don’t have to wait until Sunday night to see all of the commercials. Many companies are posting either full length spots or teasers online!

The Huffington Post has a slideshow filled with many of the best out there.

Here’s some of my favorites below. Make sure to let me know which are your favorite!
