Not So Bad

As the decade is written off for its economic and geopolitical turmoil (was it always thus), I choose to remember the good, particularly on the cultural front. No decade is entirely bad which has given us the following: Degrassi: The Next Generation, Drake and Josh, iCarly, Miss Kittin, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Detroit Grand Pubahs, Madonna's Music and American Life albums, Die Another Day (the best Bond movie of the 21st century), Lunar Park, Against the Day, Wikipedia, Slumdog Millionaire, Lagaan, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Cam'Ron's Come Home with Me and Purple Haze, The Emancipation of Mimi, James Howard Kunstler, Zero 7, The Hipster Handbook, American Idol, Metalocalypse, Gordon Ramsay's The F Word, and whatver else comes to mind.
