It's that time again.
That time each year when we take a look back at our content, evaluate analytics and compile the obligatory year-end list.
And, as is tradition, we also take this opportunity to crown our cheesecake of the year.
As with last year, this year's COTY pulled a hat trick of features, starring in her original feature, headlining our Thanksgiving Leftovers edition and finally being crowned this year's winner.
Please say hello, once again, to Alexandra Daddario.
Ms. Daddario rose to the A list thanks to her performance on HBO's True Detective. Prior to that I'd only seen her in the Percy Jackson movies, so my response went something like "Is that? Are those? Is she? With him? Oh wow!"
And that, kids, is how you get to be COTY.
And now, your Top 10.
10. Review: Out of Print Clothing - The fine folks at Out of Print Clothing sent me one of their awesome shirts to review. The shirt, featuring the classic Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe cover remains every bit as awesome today as it was earlier in the year. It's high in the rotation. Take a look at their wares here.
9. F1: Pre-season Testing Underway - Chris continues to cover motor sports for us with enthusiasm and aplomb. His devotion to his part of his geekery reminds me of why we started doing this in the first place.
8. Friday LinkFrogging - 3/14/14 - No show on television is bigger than The Walking Dead, so my decision to feature Lauren Cohan (Maggie) prior to the season premiere was a no-brainer. I obviously made the right decision.
Movies 2014 - Every year I take a look at the upcoming movie season. Sometimes I'm right...Guardians of the Galaxy. Sometimes I'm wrong...A Dame to Kill For. So it goes.
6. Goodbye to 3538 Cline - Aamir moved earlier this year. This was his ode to his former home as he moved on to the next stage of his life.
5. Friday LinkFrogging - 1/10/14 - The Big Bang Theory is the biggest comedy of television. Melissa Rauch is a big part of that success. Big enough to score a 1st runner up for COTY.
4. My Favorite Records of 2014 - Every year Aamir gives us a look at his favorite records of the year. Every year it places high on this list. Horns up!
3. Guest Writer - Irfan Hydari - Ode to 3538 Cline - Another look back to the life and times of Aamir's former home.
2. SDCC 2014: "That's What She Said" - Hunter Interviews Suicide Girls' Blackheart Burlesque Performers - this one wins the award for the longest title on this list. I shot the video on the floor of Comic-Con. If its shaky, well, I was kinda distracted. Though not as distracted as the next night when the ladies dragged Hunter on stage at the House of Blues. Some guys....
1. Friday LinkFrogging - 1/24/14 - And here's the winner. She shocked us all, in the very best way. Well played Ms. Daddario. Well played.
