You’re sick of reading ‘best of’ lists, i know. i’m sick of writing them. list off a slew of great albums, throw a couple of hot button items and curveballs in the mix, assign an arbitrary numbering system … it’s not perfect but it’s a nice peek into my year of media indulgence and my iffy tastes. so here, ladies and gentlemen readers of weworemasks, is my list of notable albums, songs, videos, twitters, podcasts, and movies of 2012. enjoy and feel free to tango with me in the comments.
I’ll be back and posting on monday for anyone who missed me *crickets*

I usually do a list every year with the greatest moments in sports. (Check out last year’s.) I wanted to do a different spin on things this year. There were some great stories, and there were some disturbing ones – instead of focusing on things we already know, I wanted to bring to you some videos, memes, gifs and articles of relevance and humor that I found and hoarded over the course of the year.
Think of it as kind of a spinoff of Grizzly’s Top Memes of 2012 List.

Previous Year-End Lists: The Best Memes of 2012 | The Best Music Videos of 2012 | The Best Mixtapes of 2012
I’ve been doing these for two years now (this is version 3.0), but I have to say, that the concept of “meme” went viral in a mainstream kinda way in 2012. Not only were Internet’s finest catching on, but there were dedicated Twitter accounts to memes (Successful Black Guy, Condescending Wonka, etc). And yes, that dilutes this arena a bit. But hey, fuck you – this is my internet and you can’t have it. I also have to mention that 2012 was a little thin at outstanding memes, but I managed to create a list of 15 and narrowed it down to a solid 10, all of which you can see below the jump.
Previous Year-End Lists: The Best Music Videos of 2012 | The Best Mixtapes of 2012
Another day in late December, and another year-end list. I gotta say, this was a pretty weak year for mixtapes and free EPs (which were also included on this list). And maybe it’s my fault in the fact that I didn’t try hard enough to seek ‘em out, but what I did seek out is here on this list. Hit the jump for the countdown, as well as the download links!
Previous Year-End Lists: The Best Music Videos of 2012
It’s that time of the year again, where we put together a variety of year-end lists. This year, I’m going to kick it off with the visual overload, and my 25 favorite music videos of 2012. The list is in no particular order (other than alphabetical) and as it goes with most lists, I’m sure I left some off. Feel free to embed your favorite video in the comments!
Hit the jump for my choices, and stay tuned for more lists!
