so yeah, 3 years ago today, chumptastic was born on a pentium 133, which was more than adequate to serve pages to 10 visitors per day. now that i've just recently peaked at 500 visitors, perhaps i should consider retirement.

as has become a tradition, here are some of my chumptastic highlights of the year:

~ it'd be tough to top the time when k-os paid me a visit
~ i also have a soft spot for the ridiculousness of this post
~ and, show-wise, nothing was better than the arcade fire's visit to clark hall pub

anyway, thanks to all of my readers (including you, spambots), and explodingdog.com for the fantastic background (swiped without permission).

and now you may proceed to normal chumptastic goodness.
