It’s about that time to say goodbye to 2012 and hello to the new year. Thinking and looking back at the year there were a lot of great entertainment releases in music, film, books and games. Before we start getting amped up for what 2013 has in store I thought I’d go back and offer up my picks for my own best of 2012 in various categories. These are my own personal choices and do not reflect how well something did for ratings or sales or how much it was pushed in front of our faces. Not your list or their list. They are the movies, games and the such I got the most enjoyment out of and the best experiences. When I find something that good I just have to share it. So if you have also enjoyed these items right on and high five. If not then click on the pictures for most of them are links and go grab a copy of your own. There was no clear winner for me in any particular category so this will just be my top choices in no particular order. Here are my Fizmarble picks for the Best of 2012.
Here is the official music video for The Classic Crime’s song “The Precipice” from their newest album “PHOENIX” which was released 8/14/12. It’s a great rock album and would make an excellent gift for the music fan in your life for Xmas. Check out our review for Phoenix at the link below and pick up your copy in digital form or physical version at the album links below that.

The Classic Crime is Matt MacDonald, Robert Negrin, Alan Clark and Paul Erickson. I’ve been a fan since their debut album Albatross was released back in 2006. They are a rock band that can do it heavy or lighter, moody or more upbeat. They do not limit themselves to a specific sound or kind of rock and while that may turn off some fans drawn to a particular aspect of a band I find that it gives them a greater catalog of music in the long run along with the ability to provide a more well rounded emotional experience at their concerts.

We are back with another mixed offering of music for you. This month is a combination of some of my personal favorites along with some new releases from the likes of Matisyahu, Fang Island, Aimee Mann, Passion Pit and more. I hope you enjoy and find something among these that makes a fan out of you. If you like it pass it along to your friends. Music should be spread and shared.
Below you will find a list of songs I would like to share with you. Some new and some old. Varying styles and genres. I will link as many of them to Youtube as I can, but any that can not be found there can be found at www.grooveshark.com. Grooveshark is a great site and tool for streaming music. This will be a monthly offering from us and we encourage you to reccomend artists, bands and songs for inclusion in future mixes. We hope you find some new musical addiction somewhere among the songs that make up this Fiz Mix. Enjoy. Continue reading
