2005 A Year In Review

at the end of each year and the beginning of the next it has become customary to list some highlights (& sometimes lowlights) of the year. to be honest, i really find this type of documentation is always interesting to look back on as it allows you to see the popular movies, the style trends, the bestselling music, political events, celebrity arrests, marriages, breakups, rehab stints, births etc., and technological innovations for any particular year. i always like to do this for myself in my journal: life events, the price of a postage stamp, a movie ticket, a can of soda, subway fare, a pair of jeans, type of camera/computer i currently use–these are things that evolve and change over time and could actually be interesting looking back on them in years to come. i usually include some news clippings or something to highlight the year. you always think you’re going to remember but it is soo easy to forget these things. One of the most comprehensive resources on the web that i have found for the year 2005 in review is on the blog fimoculous, as the author has compiled links to the top movies, art articles, news links, the top quotes of the year, celebrity info. a lot of the material is incredibly funny and there are links to sources i would never have thought of checking! check it out: fimoculous year 2005 in review
