Movies, music,books, meals, events personal and public, what needs to be celebrated or derided before the clock runs out on 2010?

I’ve decided (last thing mentioned in past tense) to only look forward.
I hear the new Band of Horses and Arcade Fire albums are pretty good, and hope to have one of each under the tree. And Richard Thompson’s new one, which I heard him do live.
Movies: Excellence such as Hot Tub Time Machine is seldom matched, but the Ghost Writer and City Island were enjoyable. Honorable mention to Hubble 3D for blowing my mind.
Experiences: Acclimating to the cold during 4 days in Asheville in Jan. 2010.
Books: I only read blogs.
Meals: Ray’s Steel City puts on a nice spread. This from a Steelers hater.
Thanks for playing everyone (both of you.)I’m going to go with…
movie- Winter’s Bone
book- Chronic City
album- Back Porch Revival: Live at Highland’s Hammock.
events- the ride I just finished, Glitter Chariot show at 621
repeal of DADT, Those dang Chilean Miners, my nephew’s big Pirate visit.
Tea Party idiots who YELL WHEN THEY TALK.
The Great Crash of June 2nd.
book- Let the Great World Spin
album- I don’t know, did Creed put out a new record?
You’ve reminded me to sit myself down and remember what I have read this year.
Can I get on the list to borrow Chronic City? The tactile format, not the e-copy?
Thanks for the promo for BPR:Live at HH. Now available on iTunes and at Amazon.com. All proceeds go to promote Highlands County Wellness Camp.
I read Barbara Kingsolver’s “Lacuna”, which was good. I think you’d enjoy it on it’s many levels.
