Next week will bring our roundup of 2011 favorites, but while we're compiling that, we bring you our predictions for 2012. Who will be nominated for an Oscar? How will music streaming shift? What does the future hold for the comedy podcast? What about Louis C.K. and his comedy special sold online? What should we expect from the hardest-working woman in show business? What of Community? Also: Who will be elected president? (Psych, we're not doing that one.) All that, plus selections from Stephen's dream journal.

Naturally, we wrap up with what's making us happy this week. Some of it, we really think is going to blow up.

Find us on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter: me, Trey, Stephen, Glen and Mike. Make predictions for 2012! Tell us we're nuts! Blow some stuff up! You know you want to.
