2012: An Overheard Productions year in review

2012 in review

[Insert audible groan of indecision mixed with ‘Oh well, why the hell not’-ness.]

I realise that ‘Year in Review’ blogs and lists can seem as passé as flash mobs and….. other things that are passé.

Like saying that things are ‘passé’.

But as per the opening sentence, ‘Why not?’.

As with many things that I’ve written since age 14, this may provide a mixture of utility for others (especially if I’m reduxing your interview or news event) and utility for me. It’s a natural progression from the Year in Review emails and Farcebook notes I’ve written in years gone by.

This 2012 version was prompted by that nonsensical Farcebook function that purports to consolidate your 20 biggest moments of 2012, using an algorithm that was obviously created by a very finite number of monkeys on a finite number of very old typewriters.

That’s the official video, and a lot smoother than the very rough one I took on a dodgy camera phone last year at Tilley’s. My version DOES however feature a Go Girl Gadget Go dancer falling into the front row, so there’s that! CORRECTION: the pitching into the front row was on a previous track. No Go Go dancers were harmed in the making of this video clip.

See you at the ANU Bar.
