The Year End Review – 2012

So today is the last day of 2012, ARE YOU READY FOR 2013? That’s when you say, HELL NO. Well, there’s lots that went down and lots that shouldn’t have come anyway near us this past year. To sum up as quickly and painless as possible, I’m going to give you EVERYTHING that has happened this past year. Put on your reading glasses and catch yourself up in “LUDICROUS SPEED.” (If you don’t get that reference, you have stumble upon the wrong website and should go find prettykitties.com)

The Supreme Court fights against Fox TV for “indecency.” I actually forgot this happened. The cross dressing tv show “Work It” got cancelled. I’m suddenly remembering why this show got cancelled. The IFPI claimed that delays to the Digital Economy Act were the reasons for piracy still being high. Yea and it had nothing to do with people being tight asses. DC Comics brings back Watchmen as “Before Watchmen.”  I wonder whatever happened with that. Barnes and Noble Bans Amazon Books.  Yea cause that really hurt Amazon. Vicente Fernandez announced his retirement. Only to retire in 2013. Wii announces the Wii U. Released in the fall. JK Rowling announces new book for adults. I saw when it was released, then it disappeared into the universe. Dr. Seuss turned 108. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!  The Rolling Stones celebrate their 50th anniversary. Damn those guys are OLD.  “The Rock” makes his comeback. This happened as quickly as it ended.  The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted Gun’s N’ Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Beastie Boys, Donovan, Laura Nyro, Small Faces and Faces. Epic Concert. Pepsi and Twitter join forces. Concerts on youtube is genius. The Vatican denounces a sex book written by a nun. This story still makes me laugh. TomKat gets a divorce. All of America was waiting for this. “Meet the Dictionary’s New Words.” And they don’t all start of the letter ‘r.’ Wonder Woman and Superman set to become a couple. Only DC Comics. Bin Laden is killed. And then we tell them how we did it. Real smart folks Randy Newman writes, “I’m dreaming of a white president.”  Still makes me laugh every time I read about it. Who’s apart of the 47%?  ME!!! Matthew Perry returns to NBC with “Go On.”  It’s not just for the crazies. Disney buys Star WARS. Problem or good times? The wicked tale of “Standards and Practices.” Stupid TV politics.  Obama wins presidency. I voted. Channing Tatum is reported “sexiest man alive” by People magazine. Yea yea yea. NBC announces “The Sound of Music” revamp for TV only has Carrie Underwood as lead female role Maria. So not making people happy. People begin to blame the fine arts for the shooting in Newtown, CT. Because they are stupid. 

Legends we lost: Dick Clark, Ann Rutherford, Marvin Hamlisch, Ron Palillo, Michael Clark Duncan, Jenni Rivera, Larry Hagman, Etta James, Don Cornelius, Whitney Houston, Davy Jones, Donald Dunn, Donna Summer, Robin Gibb, Kathryn Joosten, Richard Dawson, Nora Ephron, Andy Griffith, Ernest Borgnine, Neil Armstrong, Andy Williams, Dave Brubeck and so many more.

What did you think of the 2012 year? Was it good to you?
