    Default Your Ranked Top Ten 1-10 Rankings of 2012

    Which were your favorite rankings this year? I'll rank and compile all the lists into a weighted master list and then set it all on fire outside a Neilsen office. Here's mine:



    10: 2. I've about had it with the feigned grace at your concession, second-besties. Everybody saw you practicing your "I'm okay with this" face in the convention hall rotunda.

    9: 9. Couldn't even succeed in being the worst. How humiliating.

    8: 1. Some ridiculous person thought you the best thing, First. Are you proud? You probably shouldn't be. It's meaningless.

    7: 6. Congratulations on being the least relevant participant in any ranking system ever. Sixth? Really? Might as well just lob the whole thing off the number line.

    6: 4. Almost good enough to be almost good enough to be almost good enough. Like a Russian nesting doll of mediocrity.

    5: 8. Meaningless placement, endlessly useful on vanity plates.

    4: 5. Now we're getting somewhere. I like the way Fifth straddles the line between fleeting success and abject failure. Trying to reconcile its merits and failings is like watching disconcertingly attractive lepers bob for apples in a vat of centaur urine.

    3: 7. Typically placed on admiration alone, as Seventh is entirely too rock and roll for this shit and usually sleeps through the actual evaluation. I respect that.

    2: 3. Third kid, third nipple, third eye, third in line for succession. Third is the red-headed stepchild, more fun than one and two but much less useless than four.

    1: 10. Most people don't get what Tenth and Last is doing. I get it, though. High art isn't for everyone.




    For the sake of further clarity and administrative records , I have ranked the quality of my ranked rankings as follows:


    1) 4: 5.

    2) 10: 2.

    3) 1: 10.

    4) 6: 4.

    5) 2: 3.

    6) 3: 7.

    7) 9: 9.

    8) 7: 6.

    9) 5: 8.

    10) 8: 1.

    I'll be counting mine down by the day so that there's a level of suspense (though anyone whose been clued into my blog on rankings of rankings and interviews and special features I've done this year should probably be able to whittle it down and at least get close. I'll also rank the day by day releases of the rankings of rankings after the final ranking has been ranked. (Though the day on which I rank the days will not be ranked).

    10: 6. Arguably the most forgettable ranking. The best of the latter half of the best? Cool, dude.

    9: 3. If no one's impressed by 6, and believe me, no one is, well you're half of that. In the negative direction.

    8: 5. Congratulations, sort of. Maybe someday you'll push up but you probably won't. Or maybe you were once the best and now you're just solid but we loved you so much once before that we can't not delude ourselves into thinking that you're amazing enough to warrant this positioning.

    Jesus Christ, you guys. December isn't even almost over. The fact that you can't wait for the year to end reveals the little credibility behind your top ten 1-10 rankings of 2012. It's too soon for me to even appreciate 4, much less figure out where it fits among the other rankings.

    Nonetheless, 10 has sat at the top of my list for a few months now. That's a good call, Hannah.

    Oh what the fuck ever. As soon as Pitch4k releases their annual ranking rankings you'll be all up in arms screaming about how much you loved whatever integer they're jocking hardest earlier in the year than their initial mention.

    Look, numbered rankings that excel at the end of the year do tend to get more heavily weighted on the year end rank rankings. Everyone knows that. The numbers know that. They know what game their in if it matters to them at all.

    All these polls are biased towards integers. We need representation from a true cross-section of the numerical community. Negative numbers, Rationals and Irrationals, Real and Imaginary. e and i deserve serious consideration for a change.

    Choosing what's best between 4, 10 and 1 to me is like picking a favorite breath I've taken in the last twenty years. I just can't do this.

    1. 7. Often placed at the top due to politics.
    2. 3. Getting close to the actual best.
    3. 2. Definitely worth checking out.
    4. 6. Too known to be important. Almost always considered the sleeper so it's rigged that way.
    5. 1. No, really. Can't keep it out of your top 5, even with all the other considerations? Must be really good.
    6. 9. If it wasn't good enough to bump just a bit into the top 5 it probably barely warrants being in the top 10.
    7. 4. A favorite number, often linked with quality work.
    8. 8. The geosynchronous orbit of top 10 lists.
    9. 5. Solidly on the list without being flashy. A good spot to be in.
    10. 18. Just barely made the cut? Likely just due to obligation. "Well I generally like their stuff so..."


    Honorable mentions: 10-17. They often would have made it much higher had they been given proper attention.
