The Lingering Questions Of 2012

Previously, I established that 2012 was a shitty year. Maybe writing off the entire twelve months as shitty isn’t accurate, but 2012 was definitely confusing, slightly disappointing and tinged with melancholy. If 2012 were the final chapter of a blockbuster action trilogy, it would be The Dark Knight. If 2012 were an episode of Girls, it would be one in which Lena Dunham has sex with someone who doesn’t love her and then eats a cupcake in the shower. If 2012 were a Drake song, it would be all of them.

Before we train our eyes on 2013, now seems like a good time to wrap things up with some lingering questions this year posed that we can hopefully answer in the next 52 weeks. Or at least the next 40 so we have something to write about next December.

    Yo, just puttin’ this out there. To people who don’t live in or have been to New York or (in my case) haven’t been there since they were eight years old, slide 7 totally falls flat with us. Like I don’t get how their store placement is a bad thing since I’ve never been to Murray Hill and such. Although I have to say, rocking Jil Sander with a fucking North Face sounds terrifying as fuck.
