Year-End Giblets

December 22, 2009

The year is drawing to a close and I should be otherwise engaged for the duration of Christmas and New Year. No time for gibber, I’m afraid.

The past few weeks have seen this blog enjoy its most successful month to date thanks to the considerable popularity of two simple movie lists buoyed with a well-chosen piece by Nick Mann on Korean classic My Sassy Girl and an especially canny choice of K-Pop Korner on 2NE1.

Compiling the movie lists proved immensely enjoyable. They’re a wonderful reminder for highly-acclaimed films you still haven’t seen and of the great films you almost forgot about. The two thus far, a somewhat premature one on the past decade and a larger one on films from the 90’s, can be found here and here.

Movie lists that-a-way

As of this writing, the most popular entry on this entire blog, thus far the greatest hit, is the piece Word is Bond. Feel free to revisit it and maintain its unlikely success.*

Also, don’t forget to indulge your curiosity for the perverse oddities of Korean pop music. Step into the kitsch and quirky nightmare-zone of K-Pop Korner…..if you dare.

That about wraps it up for 2009.

I wish everyone an indulgent and fecund Saturnalia and the gibber will resume in 2010.

(*I prepared this entry a week or so in advance. At the time, the post in question was the most popular but it has since been overtaken by the list of 90’s films.)
