The top three posts from Week Three, Dec 15-21, with prizes from the wiki
In third place, zarq
does that thing he does so well and drops a monster post about a beloved TV show, this time it's everything you ever wanted to know about the spy comedy Get Smart
. The post features not just every full episode of the five season run (all 138 shows are on YouTube), but also featured information on spinoffs, including the follow-up movies and the cartoon spoof Inspector Gadget.
Coming in hot in second, filthy light thief
furnishes us with a mega-post covering the entire career of new wave Sci-Fi writer James Tiptree Jr
. James Tiptree had an interesting life story along with friendships with other sci-fi writers of the day, but eventually was found out to be the pen name of Alice Bradley Sheldon, who it turns out had an even more interesting life story.
Cresting the finish line for first this week was mannequito
, with a megapost homage to the silent/hidden track on albums
. The post covers the history of hidden or unmarked tracks going back to the 1960s, what happened in the 90s with CDs, and how a few bands experimented with the mini-artform. It's a little sad we have to say goodbye to it in the age of digital files, but who knows what might come next to take up the hidden track torch.
