Misty watercolor memories:
2008 is nearly over, but before we here at Vulture break for the holidays (we'll be back Monday!), we'd like to take this opportunity to reflect on another banner year for our blog. In these past twelve months, we've celebrated victories, mourned defeats, made some new friends, and caught up with some old ones. America may have picked the wrong Idol and saved Cavemen, and the world may be hurtling toward total economic meltdown — but, hey, at least our traffic's up! After the jump, we count down some of your favorite Vulture posts and ours. Thanks for the great year, everybody!
