The Gimcrack Miscellany Turns 2 Years Old
Posted on 04. Apr, 2009 by The Gimcracker in Blogging, Top Fivers
Two years ago today, on April 4th, 2007, the Gimcrack Miscellany (at that point named “B”) dove into the annals of Interwebbery with its first post. Since then, lives have been changed, baby kittens have been born and slaughtered (probably somewhere – I know that’s harsh), Taco Bell’s Volcano Taco has come and gone, thesixtyone.com rocked my world and now it sucks (maybe not to me, but to a lot of people), Cloverfield came out, Twitter made the world retarded, and your mom started using the word “fail” more often than an inner-city high school English teacher.
You know what hasn’t changed? How awesome TGM is. It is awesome.
I’m going to toot my own horn here and give you my top 5 favorite TGM posts from the last 2 years. Out of 183 posts (with a total of 939 comments – probably mostly about Katy Perry’s boobs… /wrists), these are the best of the best (IMO).
