I love December. Not just because of the holidays, but because December brings about one of my most favorite elements of pop culture: the end of year list. I have shared some my favorites and have some more to come soon, but I would much rather consume these lists than make them myself.
Today one of my favorites was published–the results of National Geographic’s photography contest. Every year these boggle my mind.

In my opinion, 2011 was a dismal year for feature films. Normally, I would try to post separately on movies and TV…but I can barely come up with any movies I liked enough to list!! So sad!
I have a lot of TV that I love, but I’ll only list a few…here are my favorite “watches” of 2011:
There are several movies I’ve yet to see that might qualify—December is a crazy month for film always!!

I have made my love of podcasts very clear, but I also love music and can pretty much always be found listening to something. Be it music, podcast, public radio, or an audiobook, I MUST be listening to something while performing almost any daily task such as cleaning, cooking, driving, folding, washing, running, blogging…
Evidence can be found in these photos from this evening–home from work on a rainy night=big sweaters, slippers, wine, and DANCE PARTY, preferably to some of the music listed below.
These are some of my most favorite “listens” of 2011:
Cut Copy Zonoscope Adele 21
The Book of Mormon Tina Fey Bossypants
Lady Antebellum Own the Night Drive Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Feist Metals Foster the People Torches
I’m sure this list will change very soon–I always discover tons of new music this time of year from all the Best of 2011 lists that pop up, especially via the NPR’s All Songs Considered podcast discussion.
