Best of 2005

With Christmas now safely behind us and the new year comming around in a few days (unless you're celebrating Kwanzaa or the Chinese new year), this is a time for reflection. A time where those "best of"-lists start popping up all over the place.

And when looking around the web there seems to be a list for EVERYTHING! Whether it's search results, albums or singles, movies, photographs (Time and Reuters), most blogged-about books, wines, men of the year, (despite my post) most annoying celebrities, best invention, webcomics, pc products, games, concerning travel, cars, cellphones, toys or whatever: it's been done! All the lists you ever want have been made.

And whether you agree with them or not, making lists like these is always about the writer's taste. And as the saying goes: there's no accounting for taste. There can be every conceivable list on the planet where everyone shares their taste about every subject imaginable and still it's better to have a personal opinion. Don't let anybody tell you what to like or dislike but find out for yourself. Let that be on the top of your list every year.

See you next year!
