Friday LinkFrogging - 12/21/12
This is the end...my only friend...the end.

That's right kids, this is the very last LinkFrogging.

Of 2012!

Seriously, are we to believe that the Mayans, a civilization that was undone by guys on horseback wearing buckets on their heads, could predict the end of the the world centuries out?

Seriously?

Y2K anyone?

We just love to panic out the apocalypse.  Be it tech, asteroids, zombies or The Jersey Shore, we all think we know how its going to end.

The plain and simple truth of the matter is we don't. 

Just remember, it's better to burn out than fade away.



Let's enjoy it while we're here.

So, as I was saying, this is the last LinkFrogging of 2012 to feature new content.  Next week is our annual "Top 10" wherein we will take a look at our most popular features of the past year and crown a new Cheesecake of the Year.

Before we get to that however, let's add one more contender to the mix.

Say hello to Kerry Washington.

Ms. Washington appears in the new Quentin Tarantino film, Django Unchained, which opens on Christmas day, because nothing says Christmas like a Spaghetti Western-Blacksploitation mixtape.

Say what you will about Tarantino, but the man is an expert at shoehorning genres together.  What's next?  How about a Sci-Fi-Rom-Com.

I think I'm officially out of hyphens for 2012 now.

Back to Ms. Washington.

In addition to being QT's latest muse, she's appeared in such other geek-approved fare as Ray, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Fantastic Four and The Last King of Scotland.

I'm sure she'd rather I not mention that she appeared in Little Man, A Thousand Words and one of the many movies in the "We Will Make Patrick Wilson a Movie Star Even If It Brings About the Apocalypse" canon, Lakeview Terrace.

Ms. Washington is also currently appearing on ABC's Scandal.

Let's hit the links.



Awful Announcing’s Top 10 clips of 2012

For all you litigation-fearful New Year’s Eve party hosts out there. 

@myspacetom FTW!

Ever mistake in The Avengers in less than three minutes.

Instagram claims the right to sell your pictures.

Then again, maybe they don't.

Eight famous bands you didn't know released awful albums this year.

Game of Thrones as a CW show.

Should we give a damn about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?

A year's worth of Top 40 in four minutes.

And finally, the evolution of the Batman logo.



And, as a Christmas gift to you my dear reader(s), how about a little Band-Aid?

Ring those clanging chimes of doom!
