2015 – Listogeddon

As you might be aware, they’ve only gone and changed the numbers on the years again. Those of you with long memories will recall that around this time last year, they dropped the ‘4’ at the end of 2014, replacing it with a ‘5’. Well, apparently the ‘5’ wasn’t working out either so that’s gone and now we have a ‘6’ making it 2016. I don’t know what I make of it. On the plus side, they seem convinced that ‘201’ is still working so that’s something at least. It looks unlikely that they’ll consider ever changing those again, but given recent history, I don’t like ‘6”s chances of still being around this time next year.

Anyway, here’s some things that I enjoyed this year, not necessarily things that came out this year:
