Best of 2011

Like last year, I’m sharing my personal ‘Best of 2011’ list.

The format remains the same, no frills, no arguing the how or why. I didn’t want this post to become just a list of links, so you’ll have to Google or Bing your way to more information.

Music: Smoke Ring For My Halo – KURT VILE *Last minute discovery*
Honorable Mentions: Demolished Thoughts – THURSTON MOORE; Bon Iver – BON IVER 

Movie: Fiction > Black Swan – DARREN ARONOFSKY
Non-Fiction > Bill Cunningham New York – RICHARD PRESS

Book: Fiction > The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time – MARK HADDON
Non-Fiction > Responsive Web Design – ETHAN MARCOTTE

App: Flipboard

Website: Poler’s Tumblr, I realize it’s a little weird to pick a Tumblr site as my favorite site of the year, but Tumblr really became hard to ignore in 2011 and Poler’s entire marketing strategy is just genius.

TV: Fiction > Mad Men (AMC)
Non-Fiction > Planet Earth (BBC)

That was 2011. Please share your ‘Best Of’ in the comments.  I’m sure there’s a lot I’ve missed.
