Banjo versus TV: Week 52

The very last check-in on the Banjo versus TV project — J.R.'s resolution to spend more time in 2008 on his banjo than on TV. This post covers 12/23/2008 through 12/31/2008.
Banjo ?? hrs, TV ?? hours

"So," I hear you ask, because I'm a listener, "What banjo-themed stuff did you get for Christmas?"

And the answer is, this:

A copy of Spectacular Spider-Man #156 (November 1989) featuring the 10-year-old mutant menace of Banjo! Yes, this has little to do with the banjo as a musical instrument. (See this video if you want to see the true Spider-Man/banjo connection.)

Thanks, Big Brother!

So that's it for 2008. One year of fierce battle between the forces of banjo and the boob tube.

And the banjo won.
