You may remember 2005-- it was the year of Hurricane Katrina. Condoleezza Rise became the first African American woman Secretary of State, and Benedict XVI became Pope. Terrorists bombed the underground in London. Bloc Party released their first full-length album Silent Alarm and Daft Punk released Human After All. Probably more things happened in music, but those topped my list of highlights! Nerds rejoiced in the release of the Serenity movie as well as the debut of the re-boot of the tv series Battlestar Galactica.
Why am I hyping 2005? Because I just did the top 7000 Name Lists of that year! Why 2005? I've done all the years in between now and then, but I can't find them. I think they're on a flash drive somewhere... so 2005 remains an island right now. I'll find the others and post them, but for now, enjoy:
