Happy end of 2009, everyone! There are lists for the best movies of the year, the biggest news stories of the year, the best sci-fi movies of the 2000s, lists of lists for the 2000s, and analyses of top lists. This should give you plenty of discussion/argument material for any parties tonight!

The Awl is running an "end of the '00s" series which is just awesome. Particularly interesting to Cassandra and me was the article on losing one's idealism (we don't blame baby boomers as much as the author, but it's an interesting take on our generation and its influences.)

Also from Cassandra: some thoughts by a sixteen-year-old Anais Nin from New Year's Eve 1919.

Mateusz Skutnik, game designer extraordinaire, has whipped up a quick game called "Where is 2010?" for our enjoyment. (I haven't found 2010 yet. I will keep looking.)

And finally, we take you out for the year with the help of the Clever Hamsters. Hit it, guys! Thanks to everyone for reading, commenting, and sharing, and we'll see you in 2010.

I am so very glad to see the end of 2009. I think one of the worst things to happen this year, on the international scene, (brace yourself, it may be highly offensive to all I hold dear, but it is the truth) is Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize. Doublespeak! The war wager wins the NOBEL PEACE PRIZE! That is nuts.
