2010 was a pretty good year for movies, if you're a 14 year-old Harry Potter fanatic that is. Well, there are some other badass films that also came out, let us not forget...
Let Me In - Alright none of you actually saw this movie. But I did. It was ridiculous and epic. Let's put it this way, like 5 people get decapitated. Certain parts are like fucking Braveheart for Christ's sake.
Inception - If you haven't seen it, you've heard of it. The best mindfuck of the year, and as P. Diddy would say, "A Deep Mind-Fuck." Which brings me to...
Get Him to the Greek - Hilarious. Hands down funniest movie of 2010. P. Diddy actually doesn't suck, Jonah Hill is the awkward fat fuck he always is. And Russell Brand plays the convincing, attempting-to-be-intellectual moron superstar. I loved it, and you did too.
Kick-Ass - This movie I was sort of skeptical of. I mean McLovin was fine in Superbad, but like, how would he do in a real movie? The answer was get one-upped by a twelve year-old girl and Nicholas Cage. But the movie was awesome and you could take it seriously. Kind of. I mean, a real-life superhero though, tell me you all haven't thought of how cool that shit would be.
The Other Guys - This was another one I wasn't sure of. But the cast sets it in stone. Samuel L. Jackson and the Rock are in it just enough to be hilarious. Eva Mendes is your eye candy, and Marky Mark and Will Ferrel are so fucking funny. Awesome movie.
Toy Story 3- Moviefone already has TS3 as their number one movie of 2010. And I must admit, it was awesome. Those who haven't seen it, try to erase the abortion that was TS2 from your heads, and drink in the awesomeness of the third installment of the movie that got us kids into computer people things. Don't knock it because the first one came out when you were younger and now you're jaded and old and rickety. It is still awesome, trust me.
And fuck you Harry Potter and Twilight I ain't saying shit about either of you fags.
Another huge thing this year as far as movies was the smart electronics companies giving the old 3D a whirl yet again. Remember this shit from like the 80's? Or Disneyland? Yeah, well now it's back. And even though the price of a 3D movie is like $15, I just saw Tron in 3D, and that shit is nuts. It's like five steps above watching a Blu Ray or some shit. They even got 3D TV's now, who woulda thunk it.
Intruder Song - This started as an interview during a news story, and has become a national phenomenon. Dude's song is on iTunes and everything. Antoine Dodson even performed it live at an awards show. Here is the break-in that started it all...This crazy shit has 26 million views, holy jesus christ monkey balls.
Double Rainbow - Double Rainbow is an emotionally charged homage to the most elusive of rainbows, the double rainbow. This man's appreciation for nature's beauty touched us all.
Also I'm going to predict the break-out youtube sensation of 2011. My boys over at Epic Meal Time. They are a bunch of funny-ass Canadian dudes and a couple hot chicks who love to cook. And this isn't any Food Network bullshit. They do everything with bacon and Jack Daniels. Watch out 2011 they're coming. I already posted their alcohol laden breakfast, so here's another Epic Meal Time classic.
Dubstep - 2010 is the year of the techno comeback. Dubstep has been taking over the youth of America slowly, and now it's just getting ridiculous. Everyone and their mother loves Dubstep, and if you haven't listened to Sierra Leone by Mt. Eden at least 545345656 times, you're a Dubstep poser or something like that.
2010 was my introductory year to this Dubstep and techno stuff, but it is pretty damn cool. I will say this, don't hate until you've seen a show. This type of shit isn't the same unless you're in a crowded bar rolling your face off with three hundred people within 50 feet of you, all dancing like seizuring zombies. It is awesome. For some reason.
Wiz Khalifa - As far as music goes this was Wiz Khalifa's year. The young rapper has been dropping tons of mixtapes, touring constantly, and for lack of a better term, blowing up. He's a squirrely looking little fucker, but damn do the ladies love him. You can download Wiz Khalifa's many mixtapes off of datpiff.
His breakout hit of 2010. Black and Yellow.

Drake - With Lil' Wayne spending much of 2010 behind bars, his protege Drake has blown the fuck up in his absense. He's cooling down now towards the end of the year, but his debut album, Thank Me Later, is on Rolling Stone's Best Albums of 2010 at the number 7 spot. It sold north of one million copies, and with tons of guest spots on other songs as well, this was definitely the year of Drake.
How can I mention Drizzy without mentioning the hottest female artist out there, Nicky Minaj. The queen of Young Money has taken the second half of 2010 by storm. She's due to be big in 2011. Her debut album, Pink Friday, sold 375,000 units the first week, second only to Kanye West for biggest sales in an opening week this year.
Sam Adams - Boston's favorite son finally put Beantown on the music map. Kid blew up big time and let's hope he sticks around. Who thought anyone would ever give a fuck about a kid from Trinity College. Rumor has in Interscope hopped on that bitch already. We'll see what he's got in 2011.
Of course crazy shit was going down in sports, as it does every year. A few choice bits.
Tiger Woods - Everyone couldn't stop talking about him fucking whores and blah blah blah. Now he dropped to #2 in the world. Holy shit! His ass better stop pounding porn stars in the butts and start hitting the range.What I'm waiting for is a big Tiger comeback in 2011. He is a golf god, of course he'll start kicking ass again, won't he?
|When will he come back?|
Michael Vick - Without a doubt the biggest story in sports this year is the astounding come back of Michael Vick. He was finally released from prison, missed the first three games of the season to Kevin Kolb, who did alright. But then Vick stepped up and made the Eagles a force to contend with in the NFC. Peep the ridiculous stats, he's killing the NFL like the dogs they are....too soon? I know everyone still hates him but for christ's sake their are worse guys in the NFL. So shut the fuck up unless you know what you're talking about people.

Barrak Obama chose 2010 to wake the fuck up and get shit done. Obamacare began, little by little it will continue to come into affect into 2014. He signed a new START treaty with Russia, and put the ax to don't ask don't tell. Let's just hope he keeps getting shit done. Jobs now please Mr. Prez?
|Maybe I'll keep doing good shit, Maybe|
Medical Marijuana expanded slowly in 2010. Arizona was the only state to pass a medical marijuana bill. But Californians voted on legalizing the drugs for anyone over 21, and they got 41% of the vote. The whole country might be moving slowly, but it looks like Cali is looking at legal weed in the next few years. That's a big step.
All in all, 2010 was an epic year. Tons of sick movies came out, our black president woke the fuck up and signed some shit, and Michael Vick started killing more than doggies. Also this one blog got started in September, and thanks to you guys it has had 3,500 views and counting in three months.
