This video says it all.
The release of his newest album "Mandatory Fun" was a throwback to my youth and a delight. His daily video premieres leading up to the album release were an ingeious way to introduce himself to a new generation of tech-savy fans. Our favorite: Word Crimes.

Also, if this isn't a nerdy highlight I don't know what is (this whole series of Epic Rap Battles are awesome BTW - if you want to fall down the YouTube rabbit hole for a while...)
Stephen Amell being not just a hero on TV, or on Facebook, but in real life!
Using his 3 million+ Facebook army, Stephen started the year raising $25,000+ in one week for the family of a little girl with a brain tumor (Prayers for Sophie) and ended the year by teaming up with Represent to sell (fan designed) t-shirts that raised over $1.3 million dollars for the charity Fuck Cancer.
Also, Arrow is still the best comic hero on TV, maybe ever and we couldn't be happier with this year's spin-off The Flash!
From the non-stop action of Winter Soldier and the subsequent revitalization of Agents of SHIELD - to blowing the roof off the Universe with Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel shows no signs of slowing down. January premieres the long-awaited Agent Carter and they've announced four new Netflix mini-series and a massive plan for their movie franchises all the way out to 2019! AND EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED - (stupid DC...)
Serious noir-meets-crime-drama, with so many backstory teasers sure to entice any geek! We can't wait for this one to start up again in January.
These indie point-and-click horror game is chock full of jump scares! Can you make it past Night 5? Have you seen the Golden Freddy?
This year saw the release of the 5th expansion pack, as well as well as the 90s Nostalgia Pack! Very un-PC fun will ensue...
But that is a story for tomorrow. ;)
