My Top Ten Celebrity Memory Making Moments of 2009

Diddy-Joaquin-Phoenix Is it just me or has 2009 been chock o' full to the brim with unusually  head-scratching celebrity stuff? I found all the following stuff weird, interesting, or baffling and it just seems this year offered more fodder than usual. Either that or my memory is retaining more information which seems highly unlikely considering I can't even remember if I ate today.


Sugarpants' Top Ten Something Something We Loved You In 2009

8545~Of-Course-I-Love-You-Posters I purposely haven't read any of my cohort's 2009 List Posts because I'll only be influenced by their awesomeness and not be original. I'm easily coerced by their mental prowess and they ALL KNOW IT.

Here at MamaPop, there's one magical thing that wouldn't be worth writing here if we didn't have it:

Sweetney's Favorite Things Of 2009

Sweetney_header-sm This year kind of ate my brain (and life as I knew it), but there were a few moments of pop culture greatness worth highlighting. So without further ado, for your edification and amusement and in no particular order, here they are...


Please To Allow Your Pal TwoBusy To Drop Some 2009 Awesomeness Science Upon You

Mono_Hymn_To_The_Immortal_Wind Greetings, my pretties. "Oh, TwoBusy," you say. "What sharp teeth you have." Right you are, my pretties. All the better to chew up a great big ol' slab of 2009 pop cultural goodness and masticate it into an easily digestible (and nutritious!) list of funtastic stuff you might've missed in the year that is about to be the year that was. Would you care for a drink? Probably not a bad idea. This here is thirsty work. Are we ready? Excellent. Pick up your No.2 pencils... and let's begin.


Jodifur's Top Stuff of 2009

Logo So 2009, I hardly knew ya, and I'm really not going to miss you so much.  But here is the stuff I really loved in 2009.  Starting with....

Top Ten Pop Culture Stories I Wish Had Happened in 2009

6a00d8341c5d9653ef0120a6bb3543970b-100wi[1]The more you hang around watching what passes for popular culture ebb and flow the more you simply want certain things to happen. Sure it may be seen as controlling, or needy, but I like to define it as a goal-oriented mindset. I have to find things to write about in this sea of crazy so I have an ever evolving list of things I want to happen. They didn't happen. Here are the ten I wanted to happen the most, in no particular order:


Best headline of 2009

KimKardashian Last week I offered up my best of 2009 list, and that was a lot of fun to compile as is reading other lists from the talent at MamaPop, but if I had made my list this week instead of last, I would have added another item to it and it would have been this: Best Headline of 2009. That would be given to this gem: "Find Out Who Peed on Kim Kardashian."


Snarky Amber's Top Whatever of 2009

Glee_logo  And I do mean "whatever," because I give a big middle finger to this year, with the exception of these few things:

Stuff I Dug in 2009

Coraline Though 2009 is ending on a moderately high note for me (finished grad school yippee!), it was sort of a jerk most of the time. However, there were some bright moments, pop culturally speaking.


22 People Who Died In 2009 & A Couple Who Didn't

Skull For a lot of people who started out alive in January, 2009 sucked because they died. I guess we made out pretty good, didn't we? Being not dead is the way to be. So here's a list of the best people who died in 2009. That sounded awkward. I don't know how else to say it. If you're dead and didn't make the cut, I'm sorry you're dead. I'm serious. It sucks that you died.

Amalah's Top Thingies of 2009, Hodgepodge Edition

At some point in the list-compiling process, I thought, "Self, I am pretty sure there is more to pop culture than television shows. Please try to diversify." Turns out I spent about 99.99999% of 2009 on the couch, consuming mah culture via the teevee or the computer. One time I went outside and saw a movie! All this, and nothing else, awaits you in the form of a handy numbered list...


The Only Things I'll Endorse This Year Besides Your Mom

Bastards_poster  So we have this whole thing going on where I'm supposed to crack out all my positive adjectives and hyperbole and list all the things from this year that made me crap my pants with how terrific and mind-altering-ly entertaining they were. So after the break I'll begin to list things and maybe you'll agree and maybe you won't, but it'll be the adventure of a lifetime no matter what. I mean if you're a mayfly, or whatever bug it is that only lives one day and actually...this might not even be the highlight of your one-day-alive life. I don't know, Mayfly! Get off my case! It's not up to ME to entertain you during your short-ass life! Sheesh. I just work here.

Sweatpantsmom's Favorite Things of 2009: I'm Going To Party Like It's 1999

Party Recently I heard somebody say, "Celebrate all your favorite things in life." What kind of idiot says a corny thing like that? Normally I'd say someone who'd had too many whiskey sours and just slept with his best friend's wife, but since this is the holidays I started to get sentimental and thought I might do just that - have little soirees centered around some of my favorite things of 2009. Mostly it's because I love throwing parties and it's a good way to get rid of extra food.

2009 Was Ass-tastic!

2009-sucks-temp The year is almost over and it wouldn't be proper to let 2009 slip away without identifying some of its most hideous trends, colossal mishaps and biggest disappointments. I'm pretty passionate about my list, so look away if you're in a good mood. Without further adieu, let the suckage begin.


Schmutzie's MamaPop Top Seven of 2009: The Seven Deadly Sins That Did Them In

Adam_eve Wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony. These are the Seven Deadly Sins, and I'm pretty sure that we've all fallen prey to their allure. Some of us have done it repeatedly. Some of us turn it into a whole lifestyle.

One thing that can't be denied, though, is that we love to watch these sins in action when they hit the public eye, and here are the seven sinning celebrities that stuck with me in 2009...
