This time of year the web is hit with a plethora of “best of” lists reflecting on all of the ups and downs of the last year. Quite frankly, it can be a little overwhelming — and I find that it gets pretty old pretty quick. There’s only so many times I can be offended that somebody left Rocky Balboa off their Top 10 Films of 2006 list. That being said, I’ve stumbled across a site that’s re-invigorated my love of year in review retrospectives.
Time Magazine has just released its annual 25 Top 10 Lists for 2006. As you can imagine, 25 different lists cover just about every walk of life you can imagine — Sport’s Moments, Kid’s Books, Fashion Trends — they’re all there. My favourites? Top 10 Web Sites, Video Games and Underreported News Stories — but if you know anything about me, I suppose these choices really come as no surprise. I’m just impressed with anyone who has the wherewithal to put Table Tennis on their video games list.
