Bill's "Best Of 2009" List
Okay, I lied. This is not really a "best of" list because "best" is so subjective. I'm officially calling it my "stuff I talked most about" list instead. The criteria is simply that it had to be something I personally experienced. So, here goes:
Most Talked About Musical Group: Fleet Foxes
Love these guys from Seattle. Can't get enough.
Most Talked About Theatrical Release:
It Might Get Loud (already blogged about it if you wanna look it up)
Most Talked About City:
Tie between: Seattle/Bellingham, WA
What a wonderful, beautiful, engaging and charming part of our wonderful country
Most Talked About Live Sports Event:
Watching the LA Galaxy (with Mr. Beckham) play in Los Angeles -- who knew live soccer could be so fun?
Most Talked About Musical or Theatrical Event:
I only went to one live Theatrical event (A Christmas Carol at SCR - last weekend!) so it wins and I don't think I went to any live music concerts this year -- but Robin and I got tickets for U2 next June.
Most Talked About DVD - re-watched category:
This is tough, but it is either Lars and the Real Girl or, possibly, The Fall.
Most Talked About DVD - first-time viewing category:
Probably "In Session" season one (blogged about that already, too).
Most Talked About Commentator, Radio Category -
Dennis Praeger, per usual.
Most Talked About Commentator, Print Category -
Mark Steyn. What a snappy, witty writer.
Most Talked About Guilty Pleasure:
Watching UFC bouts. There, I said it.
Most Talked About Personal Spiritual Experience:
The Miraculous "Skunkworks" Mug
Most Talked About Pipe Tobacco -
Tobacco Barn's lovely Ebony Gold blend
Most Talked About Accomplishment -
Tie between the rapid rise of my pastoral counseling practice and Robin's amazing graduation and hiring at Biola.
Most Talked About Book:
"How Healed Do You Want to Be". Duh.
