Comment:

There was a fiercely contended battle for the title of the mix this year as I managed to keep a record of potential titles from January; this was great as it meant that I remembered and shared a lot of brilliant/funny things, but also a bit rubbish as many potential winners have...well, lost. Sad times.

2012's been a bit disappointing in that I haven't discovered lots of new music, and have relied on quite a lot of familiar things; nonetheless, the mix has managed to be fairly represented of the good stuff I've met with - three of which are courtesy of the ever-ace Captain Polaroid.

This is the first year that I haven't used an Exploding Dog picture, which is also slightly distressing; instead, I've gone for something that was in the shortlist for the title, thus killing two metaphorical birds with two (yes!) metaphorical stones (I'd never kill any real birds with any real stones).
