That Was The Year That Was…

The year ends.

Intense high and low points both professionally and personally but a year I’ve universally loved here, on the blog. I’ve grabbed a load of stuff I liked most from the almost 1400 posts here this year in chronological order. I’ve tried to stick to original content  picures, reviews, interviews, short storied and the like. Tried. All the rest of the videos, sites and clips are great but far too many to list here.

Back on the 12th.We start with…
