Top 5 of Everything 2012

It’s that time of year again the one all of you have been waiting for… my top 5 of everything!


  1. Devin Townsend ProjectEpicloud – Quality album, it’s a little bit of everything and meaty throughout. It’s most similar to “Addicted” and just as good.
  2. CloudkickerFade – Another meaty slighty proggy riffy beast from one man band “cloudkicker”. I actual prefer last year’s acoustic album but this is great too.
  3. Tenacious DRise of the Fenix – Tenacious D are back! It’s a little hit or miss on this one, some brilliant playing in places and other’s that don’t really go anywhere…
  4. DownIV The Purple One – Not their greatest, the production is a little too raw but still a decent rockin EP. Let hope the other’s don’t take 4 years to come out.
  5. SoundgardenKing Nothing – Didn’t really enjoy this much but there hasn’t been anything else decent rleased this year.

Pretty poor show on the music front but at least there’s a new “And So I Watch you From Afar” album out in March!


  1. FarCry 3
  2. Hotline Miami
  3. Day Z
  4. F1 2012
  5. Dishonored

I’ve not really had a chance to play this year’s games much, I spent most of my time playing older games: Just Cause 2, Total War: Shogun2 and the SNES era Final Fantasy’s.


  1. Brazilian GP
  2. London Olympics
  3. Breaking Bad Series 5
  4. Game of Thrones Series 2
  5. Friday Night Dinner

Wowee, easily the greatest year of TV I’ve ever watched. Watching the Olympics closing ceremony I thought the Olympics would go down as the best TV I would ever watch in my life but then in November came the F1 final… Vettel v Alonso for the title and Caterham vs Marussia for best of the “newbies”. Championship leader spins on first lap, the rain came and went and came back in force, 4 or 5 pitstops per driver and a final few laps overtake by Petrov to grab Caterham the 10th place 😀 I literally couldn’t move, talk or do anything during the whole thing.

this list doesn’t even include most of the year’s brilliant comedies: Fresh meat, Peep Show and Him and Her or even Wimbledon, US Open, Le Mans 24h or the other 19 F1 races (which individually were better than any of 2010 or 2011’s races!)…

Here’s to 2013!


  1. Looper
  2. Skyfall
  3. Dark Knight Rises
  4. Avengers
  5. Ted

Looper takes it for me, I love a SciFi film with a well thought-out and detailed world surrounding it 🙂

Fails of the year

  1. Windows 8 – Why oh why did they decide to force the tablet interface on desktops, it offers nothing useful and just gets in the way.
  2. New layout – For some reason they decided to go back to the 90’s and make the new layout left-aligned. It leaves you with oceans of whitespace on the right side of the screen and you have to stare at your monitor at a stupid angle…

New for this year, things that have really bugged me!
