You are about to enter another dimension. A dimension not only of print and pictures, but of mind-blowing exceptionalism. A journey into a wondrous land where many Santa Barbara Independent readers formulated a series of categories that ranged from the pit of their stomachs to the summit of their cultural achievements. In the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, they decided to vote for each of these categories, creating a glorious issue whose boundaries are set by the thousands of readers who took time to mark their paper ballots or click their online magical slates and phones. Here then, are the results of those tallied forays into discovering the most wondrous of all these unknown worlds, in realms of commercial, artistic, and the somewhat frightening land of consumer electronics. (Wow! What was that doll’s eyeball doing in the sky?) Presented then for your approval, just past that signpost up ahead, is your next stop: the Three-D Indy Best Of Zone.
