Quickie YIR; My Top Music & Movies of 2012

Quickie year in review:

2012 was the best ever personally – marriage and fun and travels and joy! And 2012 was a big pain in the behind professionally – lots of unemployment, unsatisfying, soul-sucking work just to pay the bills. I did manage to get a few creative personal projects finished, but here’s to getting to that task more in 2013.


1. Django Unchained
2. Prometheus
3. The Hobbit
4. End of Watch
5. Seven Psychopaths
6. Moonrise Kingdom
7. Dark Knight Rises
8. Bernie
9. A Separation
10. Footnote

Honorable Mentions: Looper, The Master, Silver Linings Playbook, Bullhead, De Rouille Et D’os, Cloud Atlas, Argo, The Sapphires, Amour


1. Dinosaur Jr. – I Bet On Sky
2. Hospitality – Hospitality
3. Tennis – Young & Old
4. Now, Now – Threads
5. Mumford & Sons – Babel
6. Why? – Sod In The Seed EP
7. Andrew Bird – Hands of Glory
8. The Killers – Battle Born
9. Beach Boys – That’s Why God Made The Radio
10. Bruce Springsteen – Wrecking Ball

Didn’t listen to much music this year, actually. These are just albums that ended up in my Spotify playlists the most. I haven’t had time to get into music for about 3 years now. I don’t know much, don’t seek out much, and don’t get as excited as much as I used to.
