It's that time once again kids.
That's right, its the only time of year that Dan Fogelberg gets any regular airplay.
Thank the gods.
It's also the time of year when we look back and see where we've been and where we're heading. It was another good year for the Gonzo Compadres. You, our loyal reader(s), continue to check out our posts and, based on the increased readership this year, pass it along to your friends and neighbors. For that we thank you.
Last year ...
I recently engaged in a conversation with someone very near and dear to me which followed/yielded the following chain of thought.
A story regarding Julian Assange came on the news. My cohort remarked with a combination of dismay, annoyance, and disgust, that the guy was a menace to our continued existence. Not just hers and mine, or our country’s, but humanity’s. She suggested that his actions were intended to provoke an unraveling of the social order and could even be apocaly...
Can't have the Dark Knight being pasty white now can we?
Christmas is in the air kids.
Its also in my car, my house, my wallet and my kids.
Its been another fun year for us here at the 'Geek. We've seen our little site blossom and we're on the verge of taking another big step next year. Stay tuned.
In any event, this will be our final LinkFrogging of the year. We'll take next week off to celebrate Christmas and then, on New Year's Eve, we'll revisit our top ten posts of the year.
But before we sign off, I want to gi...
Hardly any of these songs were released this year. Not many more of these clips were made this year. So what does this list amount to? The musical things I enjoyed most during my time online in 2010. What do you get out of it? A one-stop collection of great audio-visual entertainment spanning the last 40 years of rock music. See, not such a bad deal after all.

Was introduced to this band at SXSW and instantly ...
Welcome back cats and kittens.
Its Friday and time for the Gonzo Compadres to unleash some links upon you.
We are in the middle of the festive/hectic holiday season and I like to think that LinkFrogging can provide a moment of solace and an oasis of calm to each and every one of you on Friday's.
I'm not sure if that's true, but its what I like to think.
Before we begin our trip around the tubes, please say hello to this week's cheesecake, Maggie Grace.

T’was many nights before Christmas and evil rolled into the land.
They came from oceans away with sticks, drums, and battle axes in hand.
All the naughty little boys and girls rejoiced and cheered their Norse visitors with horns in the sky.
And in the background I could’ve sworn I heard Santa and Jesus cry.

For the life of me I can't figure out why this episode has to be two hours.
I mean, combined, the fights are 30 minutes. That's an hour and a half of filler. Is there really that much left unresolved that we need to see the ousted fighters banter for that long?
I'm gonna skip all of that and just focus on the fights.
Up first, we've got Jonathan Brookins taking on Kyle Watson for a shot on the Ultimate Finale. This is the kind of fight the casual fan and...
The caption really does say it all.
Welcome to December.
We're back, and more importantly, back on time.
Tis the season to shop early, often and excessively.
Lucky for you, our weekly trip around the internet is still free of charge and full of cheer.
Last week was Black Friday. This Friday is Black Swan.
Yes, that as another of my patented ham-handed segues.
Say hello to this week's cheesecake, Princess Amidala herself, Natalie Portman.
Ms. Portman belongs to that subset of cheesecake that I...
