Our Favorite Posts of 2011

Now is the time that we, as consumers of media, are inundated with year end best-of lists. So, just as we did last year, we here at Abnormal Use have collected our favorite posts of this past year – our second full year of existence. If you’ve followed us from the very beginning, you know that we’ve posted at least every business day these past two calendar years. That’s a lot! Looking back over several hundred posts this year, it was difficult to choose our favorites. But, dear readers, the ones we enjoyed the most are linked for you below, along with their author and publication date. Fill yourself with nostalgia, just as we have, and revisit these entries from 2011.
