The Best of 2008-2009

Each year on the anniversary of this blog I post links to what I feel were the year's best posts. That having been said, tomorrow is the 5th anniversary of A Shroud of Thoughts. Since this is a bit of a milestone for this blog, I thought I would then do something a bit more special tomorrow. I still wanted to keep up the tradition of listing what I feel to be my best posts of the year, so I am posting them today. So, without further ado, here are the best posts of 2008-2009.

My anniversary is coming up too and I was going to do something similar! It's a superb idea.

I'm particularly partial to your post on TCM's 15th Anniversary and the Twilight of Some Brands. :-)
