Yep it’s the end of the trail for 2008, a year which had some high points (Nov 4) but which an overwhelming number of our friends can’t wait to end. To which we can only say:
Everything looks better when seen through the lens of a J.C. Leyendecker baby in a Russian Constructivist pose.
As always, thanks to the crew — Zena, Trish, Suzu, Amy, Elim, Marti, Jon, Max, Potts, Desi, Sara, Dino, Sara, Frank 3, Nelson, Scummy, Eric, Jah Furry, Brian, Calvin, Amanda, Jimmy, Charles, Nikki — for helping with so much, and of course, to dear Future Mr. Beat, Ben McCool, for all the laughs, and probably to a bunch of folks we’re forgetting because we basically can’t remember anything. Special Big Ups to the Beat Operatives, Aaron, Mark, Steven, Marc-Oliver, and Paul, for helping with their time, wit, and wisdom.
And of course, most special thanks, as always, to YOU, our wonderful readers, who keep us on our toes and inspire us to get better and better.
We’ll be back over the next few days before going back to the grindstone next Monday, with our wrapup thoughts and forward-looking statements.
