Best Of MetalMiner 2011 – Metal Laugh-In


As you now well know, we like to have some fun and “appreciate metal” between posting on industrial metal market activity. Not surprisingly, these get quite a few reads. I’ll be brief with introducing these, because the real gold is contained within each humorous or metal-appreciative post:

1. Gold Grillz A Hedge Against Dental Monotony – Our most-read humor post of 2011 — who would’ve thought readers were that interested in me musing on rappers’ teeth?

2. Jordan Lead Books Discovery Greater Than Dead Sea Scrolls? Or Just Heavier?

3. All or Nothing in Gold-Rush Alaska – Nate Burgos never ceases to please with his unique takes on metal-related “nerdery,” as he himself recently put it.

4. Real Steel Robots More Real Than We Thought

5. Zippo Lighters Feeling The Heat In Light of Dropping Sales

6. Do War Dogs Have Titanium Teeth? No But They Have Some Sweet Metal Gear – Spend Matters’ maven Sheena Moore came through with this great piece on ‘doggles,’ among other dog-and-metal-related gear.

7. American Industry Through the Lens of Margaret Bourke-White

Have a Happy New Year, all! And here’s to a prosperous 2012.
