I was thinking of making a music podcast but decided to make a YouTube top five playlist. The last Video will only play in YouTube. Sorry and I hope you enjoy.
Well we might be a week late, but we’re kicking off 2012 with a bit of a different version of Some Shit We Like. The new year (as is usually the case) is slow out of the gate with very little, shall we say, fresh shit for us to like and discuss amongst ourselves. However, never being at a loss for words, we improvised and presented what we were most looking forward to in the year to come of video games and film. Also, good friend of the show, Ryan O’Leary, joined us and shared his latest projects, Snack Shack and Jesus Christ! 2!!, much to our delight. Finally, for good measure, there is always our usual banter and randomness, but you’ll just have to listen for more on that.
Otherwise, here’s a glimpse of what else awaits in our first show of the year:
News – Starhawk’s potentially new and surprising DLC strategy
News – Kaz Hirai soon becoming president of Sony
News – Gran Turismo 5 XL releases January 17th with $20 DLC voucher
News – UFC on Xbox Live FAIL, promises future free access…again (only to those who registered for free access of UFC 141)
As I said on the podcast, this year has been great for movies. There was possibly only one movie I didn’t really like and if you have already heard last week’s podcast, then you already know what my Top 5 movies are for this year. However, in case you missed it, I will clue you in to what they were, but you will have to listen to the podcast for more detail.
Before I start, I just want to make it clear that the movies I picked are the ones I thoroughly enjoyed. You may not agree with my list and that is perfectly fine. In fact, if you don’t, please feel free to post a comment below with your own top 10 of 2011.
With that said, here is my list under the cut:
It’s been a long time. Did you miss us? No? Well maybe we’ll win you back. This week on TV’s Now On, we talk about our top 5 TV shows for 2011. It’s been a pretty good year for TV. An abundance of show have come and gone this year. Some were cancelled and other were picked up. So listen up. Here is episode five!
In the first half of this Super Happy Fun holiday edition of SSWL, Ryan O’Leary and Francis Sky join us and explain what they loved about 2011. Then we get down to brass tacks and shared our own top five movies and games of the year. With our lists out of the way, we went through some very complicated math (fucking addition) and calculated the Some Shit We Like movie and game of the year (Please note that the calculations included only the lists of Rick, Mike, and Bryce).
Major thanks go out to both Ryan O’Leary and Francis Sky for joining us this week. Please be sure to keep up with Ryan at ryanolearyfilms.com and @thebloodymess on Twitter. As for Fran, you can web-stalk him on the official Facebook page for The Massacre Twins as well as @massacre_twins on Twitter.
We have had a great time doing the show this year and an equal amount of enjoyment came out of individually creating and sharing these lists with you. All that being said, please sit back, relax, and enjoy our final show of 2011!
