A quick look back at what caught my eye over the previous year. This post allows me to wish everybody a Happy New Year.
Famous People I Met
Best New Discovery in Books Richard Morgan.
I have read three of his books- Market Forces, The Steel Remains, Broken Angels. I finished them in a couple of days, each was thrilling and entertaining. He has a new book out next year and he is writing the script for Crysis 2 – also out next year and the first good script for a videogame since The Curse of Monkey Island.
Manga Discovery: Biomega and Yotsuba& – The end of the world blues and a cheerful slice of life.
Favourite Album – Arcade Fire – The Suburbs – Every track was brilliant. Stand outs for me were:
One of my new year’s resolutions is to see these guys live (because I missed them a couple of weeks back and my heart has yet to recover).
Favourite Film – Inception – Here’s a review written in the heat of the moment
Images that Hint at Greatness:

Last Image I Will View in 2010:

Finally Finished Watching: Time of Eve (and wept tears of joy like a sissy).
Probably one of the best anime ever.
Favourite Videogame: Silent Hill 2. I must be sick or have good taste.
Happy New Year to you all! Thanks for reading.
