Well, 2012 was a good year for movies, but in an unusual way—more so than any other of the past 15 or so years, I feel like nearly everything I’ve seen this year has been at least pretty good.

The essential companion to love is music. I don’t know if you can even have one without the other, or why you’d want to.

This isn’t meant to be a definitive “these were the best albums ever made this year full stop” list. Like I know what I’m talking about.

Since last year's Top 10 list comprised video games my son kicked my ass at, I thought I'd focus on my five-year-old and his obsession with Fat Albert.

I’m counting to 10 like Spinal Tap does because I couldn’t figure out which show I could drop from this list.

Top 10 Hostess Treats (RIP, Friends)

When it comes to movies, 2012 was a tough year to characterize. There were plenty of good movies, but not many that really got me excited in a lasting way.

Top 10 songs of 2012

Judging feature films and documentaries head-to-head makes me uncomfortable, so I’m following the lead of the New York Times Book Review and dividing my top ten list of films into two best-of lists: one for features (i.e., fiction) and one for documentaries (i.e., nonfiction).

Yes, my Top 10 contains 11 entries. I promise you I really can count—I just couldn't bear to leave any out.

Honestly, I just clicked on the link as a lark. I had never so much as heard Adam Lambert, although I knew too much about him from reading Entertainment Weekly.

Despite the prevailing pessimism circulating the interwebs declaring that “cinema is dead,” I think 2012 was a very good year for film.

To my credit, #1 & 2 were both borrowed from the library, not obtained from publicists, so I don’t feel quite as guilty about them.

I never seem to read enough of the current calendar year’s releases to warrant either a full top 10 list at the end of the year, or to justify splitting my list into the perhaps more logical Best Fiction and Best Nonfiction categories.

Making this list, I see I have an almost unreal fascination with reality TV, and I don’t know how I feel about that yet.

The last few years, for various reasons, I have not been able to attend nearly as many shows I would have loved to. This year, however, I was able to get in close to 15 (it really could have been 25). 2012 was just a jam-packed year of shows. In order, this is my list of the best five I attended.

I originally despised Carly Rae Jepson’s “Call Me Maybe,” but after hearing it everywhere I went, I began to thoroughly enjoy it.

The only way to describe 2012’s best release is 35 minutes of pure, unadulterated fun.

#1 should have been sold out within hours of tickets going on sale; #2 was so woefully attended it was criminal.

Top 5 Albums of 2012
Written by Michael Koehler Sunday, 30 December 2012 16:23
Another very strong year. I actually had a hard time paring my list down to this. There were quite a few albums I would have included, but I tried limiting the number as my list was rapidly approaching 50 albums. These are not in any order.

I drink a lot of—and a large variety of—beer. Out of all of the new beers I’ve tried this year, these are the best ones. (Some of these are not new brews from this year but ones I first tasted in 2012.
