Top 10 Songs of 2010

I mentioned earlier that I wasn’t planning to do any Best Of posting for the year. Well, never mind. Not only will I have my list of Top 10 Comics of 2010 up on Robot 6 later, but I’ve been listening to my favorite music from this year all day and it’s got me in the mood to share.

10. “Don’t Shoot (I’m a Man”) by Devo
9. “The Sound of Sunshine” by Michael Franti & Spearhead
8. “Heart to Tell” by The Love Language
7. “The Hundred in the Hands” by Pigeons
6. “Fixed” by Stars
5. “Long Hard Times to Come (From Justified)” by Gangstagrass
4. “AM/FM” by !!!
3. “Pala Tute” by Gogol Bordello
2. “F**k You” by Cee Lo Green

And easily my #1 pick for its unfailing ability to make me crank it up, sing along, and boogie whenever it’s on:

You know, it’s kind of been a really excellent year for music.

The One Piece Restaurant

There’s a theme restaurant inspired by the popular pirate manga/anime One Piece. Unfortunately, it’s only in Japan. Topless Robot has the lament.

It’s old news that Disney and David Fincher have been developing a 20,000 Leagues movie together, but the update is that it’s now official.

Liquid Air Diving Suit

Remember the Fluid Breathing System that Ed Harris used in The Abyss? It’s real.


Siskoid can tell you all about it.

Is there any wonder that Super Friends single-handedly started the Aquaman Sucks meme? [Blog into Mystery]
