Polaroids Of Listroids 2011

Molly Meldrum laughing in the face of death, the early years

"I fucking love that Polaroids site cuz they don't make fukced end-of-year lists like those other cunts and they fuking hate Art Vs Bear" - The Internet, December 22, 2011

And I'm paraphrasing. And slightly paralysed, having spent a large portion of My Xmas Period trying out my new hang-glider down at the magnificent Stanwell Tops. And IT IS bloody tops. Cash for comment. Advertising dollars well spent. Etc.

But, YES, we don't like to make a habit of listing the best Phil Collins albums of the year (all of 'em right, mate/s?), our favourite 300 Drake remixers by 15-year old pimply kids in Birmingham and/or a definitive list of the best Kenny West blooper videos of 2011. Spoiler: he's tripping on business cards in almost all of them.

So, instead here's just a collection of other lists. Some make sense. Some are such in-jokes I don't even get them. Kinda like that Nas lyric about shoving pentagrams up inside the vagina of Egyptian Princesses.

Didn't happen in 2011, don't hold your breathe for 2012:
» Nas explaining his fetish for shoving pentagrams into God's Sun
» A viral video of Nas explaining what a pentagram is
» Dr Dre releasing Detox
» Amy Winehouse checking herself into detox
» Talons reunion
» The Mint Chicks reunion
» Three 6 Mafia winning another Aria

» Danny Brown - XXX
» Death Grips - Exmilitary
» Drake - Take Care

Side note: Of course, it's (kinda) pointless listing our favourite 'albums', because a) you can just see them presented in order of rating here and; b) our favourite two things of the year were actually a pair of seven-inches. Maybe that speaks volumes about our lack of focus, the changing consumption of music or maybe we just like it short and sweet and wear younger man's clothes. Miss you Joely.

Unexpected 2011 lowpoints:
» Mike getting kicked out of our Xmas party for trying to lift up Marcus Collarbones for a bit of ol' fashioned 1994 crowd-surfing
» Betty Best Coast, both live and in-person
» Odd Future live at the Opera House, aka "we're not kids anymore"
» Seeing a girl pissing on the Opera House steps after the Odd Future show. So bloody "un-Australian, right?"
» I didn't make it off the couch to go to the Unknown Mortal Orchestra or How To Dress Well show/s
» Street Chant live
» Drake getting mad at the tattoo artist you tattooed his name on a girl's forehead

Unexpected and completely expected 2011 highlights:
» Royal Headache released 'that album'
» Royal Headache did an amazing launch show for 'that album'
» Peabody playing 152 shows in the space of three months, within a 3km radius
» Unity Floors going from strength to bloody strength
» That Bon Iver record
