EYEWEAR'S PERSONALITY OF THE YEAR SHORTLIST

Ephemeralists will want to know who Eyewear blog felt was the "Personality of the Year".  To be shortlisted HERE, the person(s) must have been a meme or near-meme, and in some other way made a huge impact on the cultural, and pop cultural, mediascape, either by achieving or enduring something, killing people, or dying.

Think thousands of tweets, jokes, comments, headlines, and even poems, generated, by these people, some fictional. So, we are mainly thinking here of actors, musicians, political figures, spies, trend-setters, and, of course, writers. Recourse was made to the BBC, to Time magazine, NME, Q, The Guardian, the FT, The Sunday Times, and various other news and culture sources online and off.  Poets, by their nature under the radar, did not make it onto this list, sadly, except in the person of James Franco.
