The silly season is well upon us, even 666 is broadcasting some lonely soul in Newcastle rather than bothering to run a local show this morning.

So we turn to retrospectives.

On Jan 1 we’ll run a State Of The Riot for 2008 including the most read stories.

But what were your favourite items from the year that was?

(Links please)

Heheh, thanks Ant – I penned (er… keyboarded?) that little snippet:

Chic Henry spins in ever decreasing circles at ever increasing pace

Meanwhile, I’d second the Marist/Darra stories and the Tess Ryan interview as two of the most interesting discussions of the year.

Plus, let’s not forget the fantastic coverage of the local election – I really liked the Sims Challenges and candidate questionaires.

I can’t believe that no-one has mentioned the infamous yet delectable Offal thread ….

WHo+ is ronG WITH U PPL?????????

Why do I have to think of everything!

I also enjoyed the Scumdorg Infiltrates the Playschool Tent thread as an insight into how this place can work at times.
Pity comments got locked, though.

I just re-read that thread – creepy stuff.

Rhiannon Leetham and the mouth of madness –

Reading back on that thread, I could possibly have eased up on Rhiannon a bit.
Her mother, on the other hand…

but isn’t it an interesting footnote in the whole ezydvd saga, that the parent company is in receivership?

charly is on linkedin. she has badgered one of my mates for access to a group that she has no potential worth in. perhaps she should join RA…

Not a story as such, but the thread calling for T-shirt slogans had me in stitches (no pun intended): http://the-riotact.com/?p=9319

+1 for the t-shirts thread.

Sicko award to the ferret torturers

and the nutters award has to go to the friends of the WRX driver who tried to drive through a tree.

For sure, credit to BerraBoy and the Marist people, and to the local ABC for running with stories.

WoW! Cheers Skid and TM. I have to say if it wasn’t for RA the ABC wouldn’t have picked up our issues in the first place. So cheers to JB, Jazz and the team for being so patient with the multiple threads. It ain’t over yet folks… stay tuned for more info on this topic in early 2009.

And congratulations to RA for keeping the debate going despite attempts by various people to close it down by claiming that it was boring and that nobody was interested.

the recent kickfest on the summernats was my recent favourite, mainly because of the title (chic goes around in diminishing circles or something).
