DIG YEAR IN REVIEW: THE YEAR IN INTERNET

AFI-100-dig (1)

You know why the world won’t end on the 21st?

Digboston.com.


The Mayans made one devastating mistake not taking into account the 20+ online columns that live only on the web version of DigBoston. Some things to consider: The Dig is the only website in Boston with electronic music coverage that doesn’t suck. In fact, it’s some of the best in the country. Re: In the Mix + DJ Set of the Week. Despite what Menino says, we also have the best-looking map of every food truck in the city: Grand Chef Auto, bitches! Furious rants about landlords? We’ve got them. Netflix show reviews? Ask @melgotserved and pee your pants laughing at her How You Queuin’ column. Then two-step over to our hip-hop column, Five Elements, written by a damn good freestyler. And dear heathen-sex-god, if you don’t read our Thursday #SEXDAY advice from English majors, you will never get laid.

Here’s the easiest way to keep up: Follow @DigBoston.

And here’s the Top 10 of Digboston.com of 2012 (out of WAY TOO MANY) that I sweated and cried over having to choose.
