      It bears mentioning how incredible television has been for the past few years. Yes, there is a lot of insufferable garbage out there (The Hills, Tyra, etc.) but as I make my way through season 2 of The Sopranos--arguably the show that started it all--and having just finished the amazing pilot for Breaking Bad, I can't help but consider that TV has surpassed movies as the premier visual storytelling medium of the 21st century.
     After a preliminary compilation of my favorite films of the last decade, I have come to the conclusion that there was not a single film that has enthralled and inspired me in the same way as did The Wire or Mad Men, nor has any made me laugh as much as the countless brilliant comedy programs such as The Office, 30 Rock, It's Always Sunny..., Curb Your Enthusiasm, Tim & Eric, Wonder Showzen, and about a dozen more.
     I used to get annoyed by those smug assholes who would declare that they "don't watch" TV. Now I feel bad for them. You're missing out, man.


     What are your favorite shows?

     Hard as it is to believe, this decade--known to some as the aughts--is nearing its close. Despite astonishing advancements in technology and historical events that will echo through the next few centuries, I have devoted much of the past decade discussing movies and music on this very "blog." In preparation to the end of the 2000s and into the Tens(?), I began compiling my best-of lists for movies and music* which will ultimately be reduced into a Top 10 for the decade by the end of this year. In doing this, I have discovered that I am not nearly as outside the mainstream as I believed myself to be, and that I have very few selections that step outside my typical aesthetic. Regardless, I am posting my current selections as a means to help determine what, if anything, I am missing and to hopefully get some selections to check out before the end of 2009.



What am I missing? What did I overlook? What would you include on your lists? I based most, if not all, of my selections on what I could or would watch/listen to again over and over if I had to.


*TV is too broad and I haven't read enough new books to justify categorizing them.

Whenever I find out that someone my age or younger is getting married I feel bad for them.

     I visited the USF campus after work today to see the new Marshall Center, and as I walked through some of the old places I used to visit every day, I quietly hoped that my life would be as different in two years as it is now from then.
