It's heeeeeeeeeeeeeeere!!!!

First, apologies for the delay in getting this out as I got punched in the face repeatedly by my death paper. On the plus side, I got a perfect grade on the death paper so it was at least worth it (for me, not for you, I'm sorry!).

Second, this video is loooooong. A little under a half an hour! So that should at least partially make up for how long you've had to wait for it.

Third, the "nominees" are obviously not the only "nominees" in each category, they're just the ones that had the highest number of votes. Some categories had nearly 30 people/videos nominated! Nearly every regular Seasonista was nominated for at least one category, as were plenty of people who we see less of than we would like. If you're really curious, shoot me a PM and I can tell you if and where you got nominated.

Fourth, I spent eight billion years on this so if you truly hate it, please don't tell me.

Fifth, that's all I got!

Questions, comments, concerns? Thoughts for next year? Post, comment, hit me up!

Love,
Me!

That was epic. Thanks for putting that together, you did well to get it done in 8 billion years. Very impressive.
So much fun, and I hate awards shows !

Great job Tina! It was great to watch so many great entries again (and some I had not seen). It will be hard for you to top that next year. ;)

Tina, you should get a mini-Master's degree for hosting and editing that amalgam/roundup/celebration of a year of Seasons videos. Many, many thanks to you!

That's an amazing bit of work you did there, Tina! I'm tired just thinking of how long that must have taken. I think I'll go have a nap now.

Congrats to all the winners, and to all the seasonistas for building something special here.

Here's to 2013!

That was so much fun! This video shows exactly what's so cool about the seasons.
We were flabbergasted to see we won the duet category, then hopped around on the couch like giddy monkeys. Thanks everybody! We're proud to be a part of the seasonista family!
Imagine what 2013 will bring...

Amazed and flabbergasted are two of the words I can come up with here...

Thank you, Tina, for including me in the purple-ish carpet questions (loved the Sennheiser hairbrush, by the way. Or is a a Shure?)

And thanks to whomever nominated me for Video of the Year - I know it was Emotion, not Talent that got me there - but I'm in with a pretty rarefied group, so I'll take it any way I can get it!

I've also had the Sheer Pleasure to have played, and done a Season entry, with TCK and TCW, and hope to repeat it. And I'm looking forward to getting together with any other UU members, too!

(At the moment, I'm just looking forward to being able to play with either light or no restrictions, but when I can...)

Megahugs to you, Tina! It was a "stupid" day at work, and you made it all right.

And finally, congratulations to not only the winners, but to ALL of the Seasonistas! You are ALL awesome!

Wow! What a great job, Tina! That was so much fun to watch, and you went above and beyond. With all you had going on you managed to get this done, and done beautifully! I felt like I was hanging out with all of you for a while.

Congratulations to the winners, to the nominees, and to all of the Seasonistas. This is an extraordinary group.

Thanks, Tina!

Every single day I rush home from work to see what you lot are up to, and today paid off in spades! What a great video Tina, thanks for taking the time to do all that for us-truly fantastic!- congrats to all the nominees and winners, but more importantly, thank you seasonista's all for the HOURS AND HOURS of entertainment and smiles you have given me and Melissa. Can't wait to see what this year holds-it is off to great start!

Okay, all you Seasons lurkers, see how much fun you could be having if you'd jump in and join the party? :music:

You can make real connections with UU members as a Seasonista, and the longer you participate, the MORE FUN it is! :cool:

That was so entertaining! Tina, you were the perfect hostess and did an amazing job with all that editing! Eventhough I didn't start participating until week 32, stumbling upon the Seasons was the best thing that happened to me in 2012. Thank you all.

Tina - that was incredibly entertaining and a spectacular end to a great first year of The Seasons. Thanks to everyone for making this as fun as it is each week. I've made it a personal goal to try and get back to weekly participation - the week's just too darn bland without a little Sesasoning.....

It helps to live in northern Germany--it hasn't stopped snowing in nearly two weeks, which basically leaves nothing else to do but sit inside and edit things!

... You can always go to Braunschweig, hang out with Elman and get drunk on Jager...

That was awesome Tina!!! I got official Oscar Swag the last two years and if I get it next year, I will give it to you Tina...of course, you'll have to host another award ceremony :o

I gotta practice more in 2013 so I get picked for my performance instead of being eaten by a bunch of canibals!!! Remind me to never go on a 3 hour tour with Christian and Mina. LOL

All the winners were well deserved!!

Come join us, there is absolutely nothing to worry about, i myself suffer massively with confidence issues, you seriously have nothing to worry about, the seasonistas are a wonderful warm, helpful supportive bunch and i class many as friends even though we have never physically met or jammed (yet)
The first time you post you may feel a little nervous, but once you have hoped in im sure you will love it, so go ahead and join us if you wish to, and i look forward to you joining the ever increasing seasons family :)
