1) YouTube’s Top Ten In 2010
YouTube Trends, “YouTube Rewind 2010: Year in Review” (2010)
At number one, the Antoine Dodson “Bed Intruder” song, as discussed in our Double Rainbow Playlist. Since then Antoine’s been everywhere, on talk shows, at music award shows, and part of tomorrow’s “New Year’s Eve With Carson Daly.” Go Antoine?
2) At Least She’s Got Flawless Skin
Let’s settle for “Worst Person Of The Year.” That’s fair.
3) This Is How Michael Caine Speaks
Ever since Peter Sellers did his there’s-not-many-people-know-that bit on “Parkinson” in 1970, the Michael Caine impersonation has become pretty much mandatory for any English actor worth his name. Michael Caine even impersonated himself this month, though not quite as well as Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon.
4) Raccoon Thief
cuteoverload, “Raccoon Steals Carpet” (2007)
5) Suck It Keyboard Cat
Raccoons show up everywhere. Of course they steal your carpet. You half expect them to build a house in your backyard. But cats and dogs are not quite that clever…
Oh, ok. Respect.
6) One False Move, No More Japan
New Year’s is a global event. Astronauts and aliens will see sparks above our cities. Ever wondered how Planet Earth came into being? Listen to the friendly, patronizing voice (best to ignore the friendly, patronizing music).
7) Happy New Year!
Bring your drunken, sorrowful selves over here. It’s time! 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…
8) We’ll Take A Cup Of Kindness Yet
Wait. What are the words again?
9) Nothing Changes On New Year’s Day
Forget about your resolutions… Plunge your hands in water, plunge them up to the wrist; stare, stare in the basin, and wonder what you’ve missed.
10) Start Again At Your Beginnings
As proof that nothing changes, Ryeberg is going to wrap up 2010 with Rudyard Kipling‘s all-too familiar poem, recited by 34 year-old Dennis Hopper on the “Johnny Cash Show.” Dennis Hopper died this year of cancer.
Bonne Année! Gott Nytt År! Ryeberg wishes you much happiness in 2011!
