Whose Award Is It Anyway?

I have meaning to write a post for a while now, but I can't seem to find the words despite the various ideas, which I seem to be stockpiling up for who knows what. So I decided to write something, and worry about the crappiness/poor content later.

So last year started off poorly (Lotus FM Bangra :(), but it actually turned out to be a good year. I made a few great friends, got an Xbox, bungee jumped, started blogging, got promoted, got a bigger room, stopped smoking ... lots of stuff, those are just the documentable highlights I can think of. They were a few lowlights too, but I rather not document them, I'm not one for openness into my life, if I contradict this sometimes, it is purely accidental, or bursting to tell as R puts it.

Do you remember Whose line is it anyway? Where everything is made up and the points don't matter. Well I'm gonna hand out some awards, and they definitely don't matter, and of course my decisions may (read:will) reflect my bias.

Best Movie: Stardust- if you watched it, you wouldn't wonder why. Beautiful movie.

Best Song: Chevelle - Saferwaters - OK I'm a rock fan and I didn't like (read:hate) Umbrella by Rihanna or Way I Are by Timbaland. Let me just give you one of the songs awesome lyrics, that swayed my decision. 'You say I came from a fish. You mock the place where I exist'. Chevelle's Vena Sera is also my best album of the year, Linkin Park's ma.

Best Game: Bioshock - Some people don't like it, I don't know how that is possible. This game has everything any gamer could possible want (except maybe its a little too easy)

Best TV Series: How I met your mother - It makes me laugh, that counts more than any superhero drama. Heroes' ma. 30 Rock comes in second. I'm also looking forward to Pushing Daisies.

Best Blog: MJs and Joes - OK, Im biased they are both very good friends. Honestly though, most of the blogging fraternity seem to take themselves too seriously most of the time. They may not be the best writers (still up there though) but you are guaranteed entertainment in their writing. My best post probably goes to one of them, I dont have time to search through their blogs for the best one.

And in conclusion (I'm still looking for that post concluder), thanks to all my friends, old and new, for the awesome year that has passed. Hoping for another awesome year ahead.

Till next time in Waseem world.
