Best of 2007 (according to me)

When I was younger, I had all the time in the world. I could play tons of video games, watch tons of movies, and fit in some TV as well. Now, with stupid work in the way, I can't keep up. It's great that I can cut the crap (I didn't watch DOA: Dead or Alive, for instance), but it sucks that I'm missing out on stuff that I wouldn't have missed when I had 13-year-old time.

So, my best-of lists will probably not match yours (because I'm not as lazy as you are, and you obviously have all the time in the world), and there will probably be some glaring omissions, but ... tough luck, this is my blog!

Best movies of 2007
It's kinda funny, I was going to list the top 10, but when I counted, I had only watched 9 movies in the theatre this year! So here are my top five:
  1. Superbad: "It was either McLovin, or Mohammed" ... Friggin hilarious!
  2. 300: "This ... is ... Sparta!"
  3. Bourne Ultimatum: "If you were in your office, we'd be having this conversation face-to-face"
  4. American Gangster: I don' have a witty one-liner for this one, but trust me, it's a great movie
  5. Knocked Up: I'm tired of the haters! Judd Apatow and Seth Rogen rock!
Best albums of 2007
  1. Alicia Keys - As I am: My average is dropping slightly, which is to say that I am only listening to the album once a day instead of 3 times a day.
  2. Ne-Yo - Because of you: Never thought I would like it, but I absolutely love it
  3. Jay-Z - American Gangster: "Don't compare me to other rappers/compare me to trappers, I'm more Frank Lucas than Ludacris"
  4. Kanye West - Graduation: Your third album is nice with it, but not as nice as your big brother (aka B.I.G.'s brother, used to be Dame and Biggs' brother)
  5. Beyonce - BDay: Whenever someone says, "To the left", I have this uncontrollable urge to sing, "To the left, to the left"
Must see TV 2007
  • Dexter - Season 2: Serial killer meets stand-up comedian

  • Heroes - Season 1: Sylar meets Peter. Chin meets disappointment
  • Californication: Down-on-his-luck writer meets lots of hot girls ... and has sex with all of them.
