2015, Another Year in Blogging Done

Welp, 2015 was definitely a year. I guess it was a good one. I got a new car but I also hurt my back pretty bad and had to do about a month's worth of Physical Therapy. I'm sure other things happened too but I'm still groggy on nog.

I had a lot less posts on the blog than I did last year, which is like a 3 year trend now. It's almost like having two kids leaves you with less time than just having one. Really it's not just the kids though. Scapegoating them is fun but it's not 100% accurate. I've been getting more sleep lately, which is great but has really cut back on lining up posts the night before. Also work has been a bit cray cray this year, so it has been harder to sneak in some sweet sweet blogging time in the afternoon.

Ok, enough sob story let's get on with the year end recap. Here are a few posts that either were memorable to me, or had a bunch of hits:

Can't believe I built my retropie last January. Seems like that things been sitting in my closet for years now. I kid, I kid. Sort of. I played it with my son just a couple weeks ago, but it doesn't get anywhere near as much use as I thought it would. Still it cost less than $40 and was a fun project.

This list of My Son's Top 5 Cartoons hasn't changed too much. We're still watching WAY too much Paw Patrol but we've added the most excellent We Bare Bears into the mix so I'd call it a wash.

Murder Mystery Dinner: The Review

I'm 99.9% sure I never got around to posting a full recap of my zany adventures at ECCC this year. This 2015 Emerald City Comicon Cosplay Rodeo! was about as close as I got. This year I'll try and keep everyone more up to date on how much cash I dropped on sketchbooks and T-shirts.

The New Star Wars Droid is NOT CGI

After like 6 years of doing this I think I did my first real video game review, Pixel Gun for the Kindle Fire. I know, I'm tackling the AAA titles here. Next up I might review the newest game from Rovio. Can you believe those birds are still angry?

The trailer for Hand Job Cabin wins the award for most popular post of the year. I think I made like $0.69 from it.

The annual San Diego Comic Con Cosplay post did well again this year. Cosplay posts always bring in the hits but they're kind of a pain to put together. Maybe in 2016 I'll stop doing the round-ups and just do a bunch of single picture posts when I have nothing else to run with.

Suck My Surface.

Welcome Home Spider-Man?

2015 will probably be best remembered for the year we finally saw Star Wars Episode VII, the movie nerds like me have been waiting on since George Lucas originally told some magazine that he visioned the Star Wars saga as a story told in 9 parts. At least that's what Kevin Martin said George Lucas said way back in 5th grade. Sure, The Force Awakens wasn't Lucas's original vision for the franchise but after Ani and Jar Jar I don't think anyone was complaining. Of course while we said hi to new Star Wars wars we also said Goodbye Radio Shack. I don't know where I'll buy transistors and rechargeable batteries anymore.

Oh wait, Amazon.

And now by unpopular demand here are the top 10 search terms that lead people here:

american ninja warrior streaker
nicki minaj ass
american ninja streaker fake
handjob cabin
comic con costume slip
katy perry loses shorts
christmas in october
christina hendricks leather
half-life 3

Half Life 3? Yeah good luck with that one nerds. See you in 2016!

No joke, first time I read that as "or had a bunch of tits". Really not too far off.
