…but 2010 will be the best year of all time! OF ALL TIME!!
Yes, Kanye, your jackassery made for a pretty awesome internet meme. Here’s some of the best things about 2009. Oh yeah, and we put everything 20% off at Fractalspin, but only for the next 3 days. Happy New Year!
6. Kanye will let you finish, but…
Lulz were had quite a bit this year, and countless photoshops made of Kanye upstaging Taylor Swift at the Video Music Awards. Here’s some of our favorites, and a larger archive.
Parker’s “Tribute to Michael Jackson”
While we are sorry to have lost MJ this year, we love DJ Terrence Parker, aka TP’s, funky, soulful, housey tribute.
4. Christian Bale takes David to the Dentist
Oh boy–two internet memes in one! We LOLd at this brilliant mashup of “David after Dentist” and “Christian Bale Flips Out“
3. Windows 7
Finally, a Vista replacement that shows up OSX. Yay! http://reviews.cnet.com/windows/microsoft-windows-7-professional/4505-3672_7-33704140.html
2. Motorola Droid
The potentially iPhone-killer phone from Verizon stole the G1’s thunder and made for Motorola’s most attractive and intriguing piece of technology yet. http://www.engadget.com/2009/10/30/motorola-droid-review/
1. Live 8 / APC40
Alright, we are total electronic music nerds over here so when Ableton Live 8 was released and Max / MSP was integrated, we were giddy. Then they released a controller that spoke to our inner fanboy. So much so that it spawned its own hilarious photoshop thread in the Ableton forums. Here are some of our favorite shops: http://lizrevision.com/gallery?album=1&gallery=2
