The 10 most popular posts of 2013

It’s the 31st of December here in Australia… which means that 2013 is just about over. Here is a countdown of the top ten most popular posts from the year.

 

10. 21 Jump Street – Fuck you science (gif)

The reboot of this classic film was great. Of all the scenes, the ‘effects of drug use’ where they are over-confident results in Channing Tatum’s character ranting science knowledge. This awesome pair of gifs (check out the link for the whole thing) scored 3,989 views.

9. Katy Perry Elmo Shirt (gif)

Katy Perry bouncing up and down, do I need to explain it further? Seems like 4,093 people checked this out.

8. Fuck yo couch! gif

Dave Chappelle as Rick James is just one of the best pieces of skit comedy there is. This little gem of a gif got 4,951 views.

7. Jimmy Fallon & Justin Timberlake – History of Rap (Parts 1, 2 and 3)

So this post is a little bit interesting. Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake did some pretty awesome live mashups of classic rap songs. Unfortunately, the overlords at NBC in their wisdom felt that removing the clips from YouTube for people to enjoy was the way to go. I then proceeded to link only the audio versions of the files which was then viewed just shy of six thousand times with 5,991 views. Perhaps the big media companies don’t like the idea of thousands of people discovering and enjoying their content??

6. Zahia Dehar’s Ass Shake Gif

I don’t know what Zahia Dehar is selling in this video… butt it caught the eye of 6,383 people. (see what I did there?). It probably helped that someone linked it in a reddit comment.

5. Cinnamon Challenge Gifs

I was amused by the concept of people doing the ‘Cinnamon Challenge’ and this post was linked to in a Buzzfeed post which drove 6,705 visitors.

4. Pocahontas – Look at all the fucks I give (gif)

I personally love the ‘fucks I give’ meme, and this one is just really great. It seems like 6,799 other people also liked it.

3. Boba Fett doesn’t give a fuck (gif)

It wouldn’t be my blog without something Star Wars. I’m glad that this is popular and 8,439 people have liked it.

2. Random Hot Asian Women, Part 2

Even though I don’t actively post stuff into the ‘Hot Women’ category anymore, it seems that the old saying of “sex sells” is still true. It’s always really entertaining to see which search words/terms lead people to the blog. 8,685 people checked it out.

1. Doodle God Walkthrough / Guide

As always, the undefeated most popular post on the blog is actually something I would never expect to be insanely popular. I created the ‘Doodle God’ walkthrough / guide because I got frustrated whilst playing the iOS game and wanted to know what combinations I was missing. Turns out that a massive 31,840 people viewed this in 2013.

Happy New Year! 2013

“Sorry for the slight delay in posting this, but I’ve been pretty busy and I had to go back to work today” – Ben

Amazing photo taken by my fiancé (more about that next)

Check out my video of the Sydney New Years 2013 fireworks finale;

“So in keeping with last years post, I’ll discuss my resolutions” – Ben

New Years Resolutions for 2012:

  1. Lose weight – Success! I managed to lose 18kg, and reach my first personal weight loss goal of being under 100kg.
  2. Catch up with old friends – Semi-Success, I’m still pretty shocking at keeping in touch with old friends; but I did manage to see quite a few people in 2012.
  3. Find some direction with my life – Failure, I found a job though I’m not certain it will be my career. I am still keen to find something awesome.
  4. Do some photography / art – Success. I completed the 365 project for 2012 (though I missed a few days).
  5. Learn a new life skill – Neutral, I kinda learnt a new language. I studied Korean throughout 2012, and while I feel like I only know 5%, I’m still happy I can read and say a few basic phrases. I want to learn more.

Bonus 2012 events:

  1. Engaged – I got engaged to my beautiful girlfriend whilst we were in Korea visiting her family. Very excited/Happy!
  2. Blog reached 1 Million views! – Still very excited about finally having that view count click over to a million; thanks everyone!
  3. Getting to be a part of one of my best friends weddings – I was really honoured and touched to be asked to be the MC at Wongsters wedding. I loved being part of it, though I was very nervous because I didn’t want to ruin their big day.

New Years Resolutions for 2013:

  1. Lose MORE weight – Now that I’ve reached my first goal (getting under 100kg), I want to reach 90kg – which I think will be a healthy weight for me. From there I can think about doing another few/5.
  2. Prepare & Plan for the wedding – This will probably be a 2013-2014 goal, but from now on I will be seriously focusing on this (obviously!)
  3. Get control of my finances – I have a few things I need to work on, and one of them is being less casual with my spending. 2012 wasn’t a good year for me money-wise, and I’m going to fix that in 2013.
  4. Do 365 Project for 2013 – Due to popular demand I will be doing the 365 project for 2013. Get excited! (you can follow me on instagram: @benjamin_lewis)
  5. Improve my Korean – So I’ve done the basics, I’ve been to Korea… now I need to practise so I can actually participate in conversations and not sit there like a goon.

What did I do for New Years Eve (2012/2013)?

  • I was fortunate this year to have access to one of the best views in Sydney – though I was very limited in the number of people I could invite.
  • I planned a very chilled NYE party which included a bathtub full of drinks:

  • I also managed to avoid the crazy amount of people in the public areas;

  • My photo #365 was a pretty cool selection of the 9pm Fireworks in Sydney;
