Joining the ranks (finally)

so i’ve finally given in. after being an outsider for so long, i’ve finally decided to become part of the intellectual melting pot. after watching countless memes wax and wane, i’m discontent not being part of the system. plus, now that my domain of study is, well, weblogs, i can write this off as research.

i’ve been carrying my top ten lists around in my head for nearly a month now, so i’ll use this first post as an excuse to get them into a more stabile medium:
