Best of 2012 & All The Best for 2013! [UPDATE]

Same as last year, we’ve collected a few “Best Of” lists that sum up this year. It’s a good place to start broadening your horizons and check out some of the amazing stuff you probably missed this year.

Scroll down to see the details.

IDIOTEQ’s Best Of 2012 is another year of tons of amazing Do It Yourself initiatives, people still involved in doing local gigs, writing zines, bands doing interviews, reaching out for people, traveling thousands of kilometers, spreading the word about their views and ethics, talk about what’s wrong around us, trying to start a spark in our minds and change the world for the better. That’s what’s best about the passing year. I truly believe this will develop even more as time goes on and 2013 will see more people involved in activism and more people simply happy with their lives.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Amazing, Healthy 2013 Full Of Love!
