So, some stuff happened this year. Some of it was good. Some of it was bad. A lot of it was weird. Most of it was some combination of those three. Here at, we like to think we draw a pretty good bead on what's what, but every so often, we like your feedback. Hence this experiment.

We've put together a year in pictures for your viewing pleasure. Some of the images in the slideshow come from our archives, but more of them come from you, our readers. It had been our intention – OK, my intention – to give you all some music along with the pictures, but as it turns out, two weeks during the holidays wasn't enough time for me to procure licensing permission. (It's something we'll keep in mind for next year.)

Without further ado, here's the last year, as you all saw it. Keep on clicking, and we'll be asking for your photos again next year.
