It's funny how you found my review! Maybe it's just me that is being funny. I don't know.

Wow... A lot of stuff to read!!

Well, you advertised the hell out of it. I'd be surprised if @ZombiePie: found my L.A. Noire review. (Although that may be because I haven't beaten the game, yet, let alone begun writing it.)

I guess that's what makes me a businessman! (Going for a Bachelor's in Business Administration... so yeah!)

Needs more cowbell.

Wow, expecting way more top ten lists. I guess because there was a thing last year where they tallied them all up for an overall community ranking, which they aren't doing this year because it must've been a pain in the neck to organize.

All right, something more inventive than a GOTY blog and top ten list for next week. Or I'll skip it because holidays. Maybe I'll split the difference and just half-ass something, since that sounds more like my style.

I think I ought to stop writing reviews! It always seems that something is wrong with them.

Gosh, I'm always behind in the news. So much blogs to read and not enough time in the day. Oh, an Obama blog. Cool!

Congrats everyone! I dig the Christmas banner.

Goofy blog and goofier list as per usual.

Here's to the last 2011 Spotlight, and the many to come in 2012.

Thanks for spotlighting the Edward page, ZombiePie or my fellow Fire Emblem wiki editors! I didn't catch it. I will try to work hard with the other wiki projects on other sites. Can't believe the year is ending already.
