2015 in Review

This year has felt busy, but I'm not sure how/why. It's felt like my wheels have been spinning a little. I've been too busy to come up with a lot of items for this list – but what exactly have I been busy doing?


  1. Mad Max: Fury Road
  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens
  • Inside Out

Honorable mentions for It Follows and Whiplash, which I only saw this year.

TV Episodes

  1. Mother's Mercy (Game of Thrones, S5 E10)
  • Loplop (Fargo, S2 E8)
  • Episode 6 (The Jinx, S1 E6)


This year, I haven't read nearly as much as I should have. I think maybe a handful of books have been completed on my Kindle. I'm not even sure I could do a best of. Maybe I should set myself a challenge for 2016?


  1. Flesh Without Blood – Grimes
  • Can't Feel My Face – The Weeknd
  • The Party Line – Belle & Sebastian


  1. Seeing parents for Christmas
  • Getting to know the Third Rail bartenders
  • No-holds-barred Walt Disney World trip
  • MaxFunCon
