The Thrill Presents: Best/Worst of 2015

33283236-New-Year-2015-hand-drawn-vector-sign-or-number-symbol-draft-with-white-and-black-Message-isolated-on-Stock-VectorAYAYAYAYYAY IT IS 2016!!! A Lot of Stuff happened this year, and like any good-n-trendy blog, the Thrill is here to help you find out what was good, what was bad; what was nerd, what was fad; and what was ain’t, and what was knee high on a grasshopper.

TRENDS

Best: Silly Bands

Have you guys heard of these?? I got hearts, stars, even glow-in-the-dark dinos on my wrist as I type this! Yeah, baby! No tradesies required!!!

Worst: Nail art tutorials on Facebook

These things are actually super chill, it’s more the fact that Facebook’s new endless video autoplay feature has made me lose literal hours of time to watching these. Seasonally appropriate French manis? Sign me the heck up!

SONG

Best: Rendition of the Australian national anthem “Advance Australia Fair”, delivered by 7-year-old Ethan Hall

A touching example of how doing your best is often good enough for the rest, the sportscasters’ reaction to Little Ethan’s opening song at the highly anticipated Brisbane Bandits v. Adelaide Bite game this past November also proves the theory that in Australia, it is illegal to speak ill of any other Australian citizen, no matter how hiccupy he may be.

Worst: “Robin Williams” by CeeLo Green

Honestly, we wish this was a joke. The leading single from his latest album “Heart Blanche” (OH BROTHER), this song not only reinforces CeeLo’s current status as a huge, 100% certified asshole, but also in itself sounds like a SNL musical short that the show would produce, if the idea of the skit was to shit all over the memory of their dearly departed alumni.

MUSIC VIDEO

Best: “Flesh Without Blood” by Grimes

This actually isn’t a joke, I really do think this was the best music video of the year (sorry, “Sorry”), and Art Angels is definitely one of the best albums. BABY BELIEVE MEEEEEEEEE.

Worst: “Hotline Bling” by Drake

!!!! Before everyone starts YELLING AT and POKING AT me for saying this, let me say it is not for lack of excellence in both visual and musical aspects. Rather, it is the fact that Drake was obviously and blatantly inebriated beyond coherence at the time this video was filmed, and therefore I must reject it due to a moral stance against exploitation of the artist. Seriously, dancing like that, how could he not be drunk??? The only other time I have seen someone move like that is last fall as a freshman, when a unnamed senior who obviously had nothing left to lose/gain stood on a table in the Bullseye and got down to what actually turned out to be the music they play at the beginning of ads for Spotify Premium. You know the one.

MOVIE

Best: Hotel Transylvania 2

Genius. Full of love, laughs, and spooky spooky monsters, this triumph of modern animation is already establishing itself as an instant classic, beloved by children and adults alike.

Worst: Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens

Ugh. I mean — why? BB-8, more like BB-HATE’d it!!! Hahahah!

PERSON OF THE YEAR

Best: The Bird With The Weasel On Its Back

Absolute legend. A self-sacrificing do-gooder.

Worst: The Weasel On The Bird’s Back

Selfish piece of shit.
