Best of 2012

2012 in 6 categories…

Music: This was a tough one this year. There were plenty good albums, but nothing really stood out. I wonder if Spotify has something to do with that? If I have to pick one it’d be Sun – CAT POWER.
Honorable Mentions: Empros – RUSSIAN CIRCLES; Yellow & Green – BARONESS; awE naturalE – THEESatisfaction; Lonesome Dreams – LORD HURON

Movie: Fiction > The Sessions – BEN LEWIN (Based on a true story so almost non-fiction)
Non-Fiction >  Jiro Dreams of Sushi – DAVID GELB
Honorable Mention: Rundskop – MICHAEL ROSKAM

Book: Fiction > Super Sad True Love Story – GARY SHTEYNGART

Website: Adventure Journal
Honorable Mentions: Pipeburn, Hell for Leather 

TV: Fiction > Game of Thrones (HBO)
Non-Fiction > Austin City Limits and The Artist Den (PBS) I know, that’s two shows, but they’re similar enough, they even share their time slot.

Looking back, 2012 was a pretty good year. Here’s to 2013 being even better.

Please share your ‘Best of’ in the comments, I can always use some suggestions.
