I haven’t blogged in a while, but I figured I would post a quick list of my favorites things cultural in 2009…

so thank you 2009 for…

…anything Patrick Watson did (Wooden Arms, Divan Orange and Jazzfest shows, Concert à emporter…)
…The Antlers’
Hospice. It made my soul shrink
…Grizzly Bear’s Veckatimest. It proves music can still come in multicolored artwork and not suck.
…Tori Amos’ Midwinter Graces ; she reinvented the holiday album in the most subtle ways
…Pop Montreal, the most fun any music-lover can have in this town

…Il Divo. It reignited italian cinema in my eyes and showed me that I can still be dazzled by directing
…Avatar that made me witness what seemed to be a big turning point in cinema technology
…Helen Mirren in The Last Station
…the dog in Up !
…Two Lovers for having the same effect as The Antler’s hospice (see above)
…”The rabbi is busy” in A Serious Man
…Panique au village and Mary & Max for being the best animated films I’ve seen in a long while
…Inglorious Basterds
…MO’nique in Precious

…True Blood’s zombie freakout
… Lost going apeshit with time
…Seinfeld
rocking the shit out of Curb
endless laughs I got from watching CNN

I must be forgetting stuff. But who cares ?
