While the death rattle has been audible for quite some time, Viacom only officially announced Total Request Live's retirement in September, and yesterday they officially faded to black.

So while the corpse of Total Request Live is barely cold, the NY Times just isn't ready to say goodbye. They're asking their readers to send in their fondest memories of Carson Daly & Co. (who knew the Gray Lady and MTV teen screamfest had a crossover audience?).

How is everyone else coping? Jezebel commemorates the end of a "mediocre era" with a look at the finale fashions; the Daily News recaps the star-studded event (which included appearances by Snoop Dogg, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and...you get the picture); and Greasy Guide documents the scene.

What's that...what's our favorite TRL moment? Probably that time Justin Timberlake was made to identify animal mating sounds.
