Best of 2019
Note: This was originally a Twitter thread, but I wanted to bring it into the fold of a true blog post.
With 2019 wrapping up I wanted to do some kind of best-of blog post, but I thought keeping it simple would be better.
So, here’s a quick series of my 2019 favorites:
- TV Show
I tried to up my movie watching this year—with help from Letterboxd!—and I heard about this movie from some folks.
This was by far my favorite movie of the year. The visuals were great, the sound/music was fantastic and the ending blew me away.
TV Show: Chernobyl
This series was both parts captivating and harrowing.
The acting by Jared Harris is terrific and the producers did a great job showing the effects the Chernobyl disaster has on the Russian people, the government and the rest of the world.
Music: I’ll Explain Later by Hotel Apache
There wasn’t an album I listened to more than this one. I really enjoy the kind of pop music Hotel Apache makes and this album kept me wanting more of it.
The song “1985” just feels like summer to me.
