Everything Must Go (2010) - Great movie. I love Will Ferrell playing serious, but still being hilarious. His facial expressions in this movie are classic. But my favorite part of this movie is the bond Ferrell's character forms with the kid Kenny. The two are such an unlikely duo, and yet they form a friendship that comes off as entirely genuinely because of their incredibly on screen chemistry. Watch this movie!
Breaking Bad (Season 4) -Probably the best season of any show I’ve seen start to finish. All of the pieces fit so well together. Even when it seemed like things weren’t going anywhere each episode gave me a feeling of completeness, and then the payoff down the home stretch was phenomenal. If you haven’t watched this, get caught up of Netflix, and watch the best television has to offer. I’ve never watched an actor and thought to myself, wow, he has to win the golden globe until this season's episode "Crawl Space."
Big Brother - I love this show. I really need to finish filling out my application, but this season was a lot of fun. I got a little too worked up, and fell in love with Danielle. Still hate Kalia, Rachel, and Brendan though. The only thing that would have made this season better is if Dick would have stuck around.
Born This Way - Gaga’s 3rd Album saw her musical style continue to evolve. It’s definitely a deviation from her first two efforts, and it probably alienated the people who only wanted to hear poker face 2.0 or a Bad Romance "spinoff." I'm glad she changed it up, and I loved the album. Highway Unicorn, Judas, Bloody Mary, Born This Way, Heavy Metal Lover, and You & I couldn't be more different, and they all rocked. If you're curious, I wrote about Gaga's evolution earlier this year.
Super 8 - JJ Abrams just makes great movies. Out of all the films I saw this year I was most probably the most impressed by this one. Mainly because it's tough to make a great PG-13 movie. You don't have the crutches or free reign of an R rated movie. I was just completely immersed from start to finish. Great movie.
Friendzone - I just started watching this show. I think it’s fun for me because I can completely identify with the guys and girls trapped in the friendzone. I’m looking to go friendzone to endzone with a couple of the girls I’m besties with, so it’s great when it works out for these kids. However, my guiltiest of guilty pleasures is watching people who have no shot pour their hearts out. I’m a terrible person I know. This guy poured his heart out to this girl (pictured left) AFTER he got THAT hug. He ain't even gettin titties pressed against his chest!! Cmon son!
Marc Maron's WTF podcast - I'm actually listening to this as I write this post. Marc Maron is a comedian who I had never heard of until he made an appearance on Conan promoting his podcast. I listened to the Amy Poehler one and I was hooked. Some standouts for me this year included his interviews with Jimmy Fallon, Conan, Bryan Cranstan, and Jon Hamm. You should definitely give it a listen, or at least check for when one of your favorite performers is on. I hope he gets Tina Fey, which leads me nicely into my next favorite thing.
Bossypants - Tina Fey finally penned a book about her life and it’s brilliant. All the sharp witticisms you’d expect from the former head writer of SNL and current star/creator of 30 rock. Tina talks about her childhood, her fame, work, and social interactions. It’s a great read, and I found myself literally laughing out loud.
C Milli's cooking dance - LET THE BOY COOK!
Black Swan - The only movie that I’ve ever been jealous I didn’t write. It’s a psychological thriller and without ruining anything, it gave me chills when it ended. The score is fantastic, and Natalie played the hell out of this role and took home the Academy Award for best actress. I can’t say enough about this movie. If you haven’t seen it, run to your nearest redbox and get it right now! It's worth buying if you're a dvd collector.
Katy Perry's titties - These bad boys had a big year. I believe they’re 34 DDs. The more I think about it, there's really only one word that fully describes them in my mind. And Katy is always putting them out there is dangerous situations. Her tits need an agent, cuz they're hot right now. Katy had a huge 2011 btw, becoming the first artists since Michael Jackson to have 5 number one hits on an album (California Girls, Teenage Dream, E.T., Firework, Last Friday Night) and I’m fucking pissed that I missed her concert here in St. Louis. Good news though. Apparently Katy and Russell are headed towards divorce. He fuckin sucks anyway so good for her.

Beyonce's performance of "Love on Top" at the VMAs - I can’t stop listening to Love on top now. Beyonce always kills at the VMAs, and she did it again. I love that Adele is mouthing the words, I love Kanye and gaga next to each other jamming out the song, I love the dancers and light work. It was one of those moments that you can’t help but get sucked in. Beyonce is the best.
